It’s the LITTLE things…..

It is true…it’s Spring Break! It doesn’t mean what it used to mean as kid…or NO SCHOOL!  What does it mean to me as an adult and a parent?? I get to sleep IN!!  I get one more GLORIOUS hour of slumber!  #itstheSMALLthings. The one extra hour means…

  • NO rushing to get ready (partly my fault because I watch whatever “show du jour” I picked on Netflix while getting ready😉).
  • NO arguing for little man (Aidan) to get up and shower.
  • NO brotherly arguing about what to what to watch while eating breakfast.
  • A peaceful ride to work with no school drop off.
  • Listening to what I want on the radio/iPod. 

Nothing beats a slower morning pace. I honestly didn’t remember that the boys were on break until my alarm went off as usual at 4 am.  It hit me like a bullet….and I reset the alarm and went right back to sleep! #sweet

Then, I felt bad because I could have better utilized that time to get up and go for a run, but it’s TOO dark! Not that I think I’m a hot commodity or something but I don’t want to be in any harm’s way, you know??

I left my house, basking in my total selfishness. And what better way to complete the circle of selfishness than a stop at Starbucks!!!  I always stop to get my coffee when I don’t have to take the kids to school, so today would be no different. Again…the little things! 

I hadn’t had breakfast at home, (completely out of Almond milk!  Julian apparently likes it, too!) therefore I opted to have something from the menu.  

Uhhh, yes! I’ll have some!!!

Herty Blueberry Whole Grain Oatmeal is what’s for breakfast. It comes with fresh blueberries and agave syrup. Oatmeal nutrition facts (Straight from Starbucks’ website):

  • 220 calories
  • 2.5g fat
  • 5g protein
  • 43g carbs – 13g sugar; 5g fiber

Blueberries:

  • 20 calories
  • 0g fat
  • 0g protein 
  • 5g carbs – 1g fiber

Agave syrup : I couldn’t find on their site but I imagine it can’t be much considering it is a small packet. 

I’d say that’s not bad…. It filled me up and it was a GREAT way to start my morning.  On with the work day……

Questions-

How often do you indulge on those “selfish” mornings? What do you do?

Anyone doing anything fun during Spring Break??

    Ohmigosh! You are crazy! That is too early for a run, and you never know the creepos that are out and about. Do you run with your phone? Or…? 😉

    I’m glad you got to enjoy a bit more sleep! That’s fun! I indulge in selfish mornings…um…every morning. I am not a morning person at all, and I always set my alarm early in hopes that I will magically become one. My poor boyfriend! 😦

    We have a vacation coming up, so i guess that’s like spring break! Whoo! 🙂
