sometimes, god gives us little pick-me-ups on days we're just hanging on by a thread.
and yesterday was one of those days.
i had a much-dreaded doctors appointment that, unfortunately, went worse than i was expecting.
nothing life-altering happened... it was just really unpleasant. so when i got home, i crashed hard. seriously, it completely wore me out. i didn't really leave the couch until i went to bed.
but guess what i found on my porch last night during one of the fifty times i got up for food?
jessica from healthy exposures can apparently predict the future, because her timing in sending this package couldn't have been more perfect!
she is too generous, y'all.
after i almost peed myself over some naturally nutty white chocolate coconut peanut butter she used in one of her heavenly bowls of oats, jess was kind enough to send some my way!
i had to taste-test it before i went to bed last night, and i almost fainted from excitement...
reason number two she must be psychic?
i kid you not, this bar tasted just like the inside of a fig newton - MY FAVORITE SNACK EVER.
i haven't had one in years because of the hydrogenated oils in them, but when i bit into this, i was taken back instantly. i seriously sounded like a cow in heat savoring that little bite. the rest of it doesn't stand a chance today... bwahaha.
you just really can't beat figs and almonds... except with white chocolate coconut peanut butter.
maybe. it's a close tie. i won't lie, i've spent a good amount of time lusting over the naturally nutty webpage, hopelessly dreaming of what i could do with their nut butters.
...and whadda ya know, this morning, i had an impressively large dollop on my oats.
but how good was it?
... almost that good.
girl, you are amazing! thank you so much!
i anticipate the pb showing up in breakfast every day.
if you guys haven't hopped over to her little blog, please do so!
(i've blogged about how incredible she is before...)
and she doesn't know it, but i'm jealous of her for 3 reasons:
1. she is one of the ONLY people who can rock a nose ring.
2. she takes pictures that look like they're from a pottery barn catalog.
3. she rides horses... and i'm TERRIFIED of horses. maybe one day i will conquer that fear?
finnnnnallllllly, a random but note-worthy snack.
1/2 an avocado, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, garlic powder, ground pepper, red pepper flakes, and chopped heirloom tomatoes on 3 wasa crackers.
have you guys done any blogger swaps?
would you like to???
