Today I had eggs for breakfast- which never happens because I like my mornings filled with carbs and fats- protein just gets in the way. When it was lunch time, I wasn't in the mood for salad for once and broke into my breakfast for lunch stash instead:
Oh- and I have to show you- we saw Bambi this morning on the way to work in our neighborhood. Can you see him running across the street? I am aware that deer is the proper name, but whenever I see one, I get too excited. We don't live in the country or anything, but we are near a golf course and I guess this little guys was taking a morning jaunt. There was a bigger one with him, but I couldn't snap the picture fast enough!
Cake Safety in Numbers
Yesterday was birthday cake day at work. You know the drill- once a month the group of individuals you avoid in the halls at work gets together to sing an off-key tune to the poor soul who is another year older. I don't mind it so much when it's MY birthday, but the crazy amount of lunches, constant candy factory in the kitchen, and monthly mediocre cake days are not the best balance for a healthy girl like me. The interesting thing was I have never had to justify how I didn't want cake so many times in my life when I was perfectly fine, just concentrating on trying to make conversation less awkward. I guess large groups of people makes eating treats more fun, huh? There is also an acceptance that comes along with it as well and maybe makes others feel less guilty. I love cake- it's my favorite food- but not at 3:00 PM on a Tuesday, especially if it's not special and not my birthday!
What do you think? Do you give in to make others happy when in a crowd? I do- but only if it's covered in gourmet chocolate ganache! Otherwise I would spend my days with mediocre pizza and chocolate-less cake. sick.
