Sunday Purge

So sleeping in late and staying out past 1am last night has totally thrown my sleep schedule off (yet again!).  I ended up staying awake until close to 3am when I got home from the party…enjoying my grilled cheese and watching Zack & Miri Make a Porno.  Of course, then I slept late again this morning and now I’m not anywhere near tired for bedtime.  Wish me sleepytime luck!

When I did drag my butt downstairs, I went straight to the Kitchen Aid for a morning-after jolt of green.


In the KA today:  1/2 banana, 3/4 cup slightly thawed strawberries, Amazing Grass Kidz Wild Berry Superfood, flax meal, 2 heaping handfuls baby spinach, and 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze.

I’m not a huge fan of the fruity Amazing Grass products, but my samples have nearly come to and end.  :(  This one was pretty tasty mixed with the strawberries and such though.

Coffee brewed while I drank up my green smoothie.  Broke into the pack of Sumatra that came in the Starbucks gift pack I received from my uncle and family at Christmas.


While sitting here catching up on Google Reader and enjoying a quiet Sunday morning early afternoon, FH disappeared into the kitchen.  When he reimerged he handed me breakfast!


My own personal greasy spoon breaky without the hassle of showering and leaving the house.  :)

Cheesy scrambled eggs, fried spuds, bacon and toast.  Nom!!


After that I busied myself in our bedroom.  I went up planning just to put away some clothes and get some laundry started and ended up doing a total clothing purge of my closet and dresser.  In the end I wound up with an entire black trash bag of purses and two bags of clothing.  Wow.  Apparently I had a bit of a problem with cheap, kitchy purses earlier in the millenium

The big red charity bin at the mall will be loaded full of goodies tomorrow!

While puttering I snacked on a granola bar and sipped lots of water


Come dinner time FH had already had a late lunch so I took the opportunity for a dinner salad

In the big silver bowl tonightDole Sassy Greens, grape tomatoes, mini cucumber, and yellow peppers…

And served with spanakopita.  The box is empty now so I promise a little more variety in next week’s dinner posts!  (Someone asked where these were from  - Superstore!)


Added some hummus and a couple of super yummy garlic stuffed olives just for fun…

After dinner I grabbed a couple of Hershey’s kisses out of the bowl, but what I really want is a cookie.  Pretty decent willpower on my part because normally I would just eat the chocolates in an attempt to quell the cookie craving, but I stepped away from the bowl the minute I knew they weren’t cutting it.

I still want a damn cookie though.  Is 9:45 too late to bake? ha!

I LOVE a good closet purge!!
I was so annoyed though, yesterday Danny and I went to donate some clothes to the Salvation army and they said they weren't accepting donations and to dump our stuff in the dumpster...can you imagine? I have never seen a charity pass up donations :(

Glad that you can donate a bunch of your old stuff!!!

(Yeah, I think 9:45 is a little late for baking...but I would probably still do it!!!)

Good luck with sleeping tonight, I am the same when it comes to sleeping, it doesnt take a lot to get me off track.

After I saw the spanakopita on your blog the other day I was in superstore and picked me some up. I tried them tonight and they are pretty yummy and not too bad in points either.

Ps Your breaky looks delicious!

Zack & Miri is such a great movie!

The first time I purged my closet I was in complete shock. Why do we hang on to stuff we haven't worn/used for ages? I try to do it every 6 months or so now. :P

I tried the green smoothy this morning for the first time (without the super food). It was so much better than I thought it would be and really filling! YUM!
