It's Friday & for awhile this week I didn't think I was going to make it. Tuesday I thought it was Wednesday, Wednesday I thought it was Thursday. Awful!
Today while I was perusing blogs I came across this picture on Paige's blog.
She says this is the best almond butter ever! Even better than Trader Joe's. Now, I haven't had either brand but I'm anxiously awaiting the opening of the first Trader Joe's in my area solely for the purpose of tasting it. And the 2 Buck Chuck I keep hearing about. Currently, I buy the Marantha brand that they sell at Walmart. I really like it but from what I've read it's not one of the better ones. Interesting. However, I didn't post this picture to discuss the greatness that is almond butter but because the label disturbs me so much. WHY WOULD YOU PUT A PICTURE OF A NASTY LITTLE CREATURE ON YOUR LABEL??? ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S A FOOD LABEL???? Seriously, Once Again food people, FIRE YOUR MARKETING PEEPS IMMEDIATELY!! I will never ever buy this. (Sung to the tune of Taylor Swifts We're Never Ever Getting Back Together). Raccoon's completely ooog me out. I used to be one of those people that thought they were cute & I made of fun of my dear friend Allison for her fear of them. THEN this happened & I completely got what she'd been saying all these years.

Speaking of almond butter, I've mentioned that I put it on english muffins for breakfast & sometimes for a snack. Well, I discovered something the other day. Normally, I don't toast the english muffin but the other day I had a couple that were less than fresh so I put one in the toaster oven for a few minutes & added almond butter. So so so so good! Not only is it good but the almond butter spreads much easier when the english muffin is warm. It's like my new favorite thing.

The only plans we have this weekend are the LSU Baseball games but who knows if that will happen with this weather. It's raining of & on & it's supposed to get worse. I also have a mani/pedi appointment tomorrow at the new blow out bar in town with my friend Allison. We bought Groupons awhile back so I guess I'll be traipsing out in the rain. Luckily, it's for a Shellac mani & pedi so there's no chance of them getting messed up by the rain. I'm ready for a bright spring color.

Yesterday morning I went to Yoglates & when I got home from work I did a weight workout for my arms. This morning I ran 3 miles. Tomorrow is my rest day & Sunday I'm supposed to run 4 miles again. I hope the  weather cooperates.

Anyone have any fun plans this weekend??



  1. it's not 2 bucks no more - it's 3 buck chuck SORRY to break the news - i know i frequent TJ's often :o) ... ps Almond butter is CRAZZZZYYYYYYY fattening, just FYI (found that out through something, b/c i was gonna switch to that instead of peanut butter) - and OMG u don't toast ur engligh muffin???? - i NEVER ever ever *taylor swift* heard of that, it's like RAW then?! - i wonder if it's a Jersey thing? - i literally never heard of someone eating an engligh muffin untoasted - weird?

  2. NO real plans this weekend, but looking forward to that! :) I like almond butter okay, but PB is where it's at. I could eat PB by the spoonful...and sometimes do.

  3. That is a weird label...what does it have to do with almond butter? Hubby loves apple butter, I never got into anything but real, fattening butter. I do love Trader Joe's for a lot of things and always spend too much when I'm in there. They were rated as having the BEST vanilla ice cream (even better than Ben & Jerry's, which is tops in my book), and I may be weird, but I love vanilla more than chocolate.

    My daughter's bridal shower is Sunday and we have some loose ends to tie up tomorrow. I think it's going to be a busy weekend!


  4. I know what you mean bout making it through the week! But you did it! (:
