Early Friday Morning & New Yogurt Discovery

Lucas is having a major growth spurt I think…. what child sleeps till 10am??!! And why am I not more productive when he does sleep this late?!

I actually got up this morning before my two little ones woke up. (Well, until Joshua woke up- Lucas is still sleeping.)  Plus 20 points for me!! I went to be last night at 9pm (I wasn’t feeling very good) so I was ready to go a little after 7 when my alarm woke me up. However, I woke up with a killer headache. I don’t get headaches very often and yesterday I had a weird stomach cramp all day, so I’m not sure what’s going on with me.

And NO I am not pregnant. Don’t even let that thought cross your mind or you might jinx me.

I started the morning off early with breakfast #1.

I am SO HAPPY to have found a new yogurt I love.  I’m picky about my yogurts- I don’t like them too sugary and I want them healthy, but I can’t stand the chunks of fruit in them. Well, be still my beating heart… I have found my long lost yogurt love.

Chobani Greek Yogurt. The second ingredient is strawberries yet it doesn’t taste like I’m eating chunks of soggy left over strawberries. It’s delicious! Annnd it has 14 grams of protein which is a fantastic amount of protein for a yogurt this size! I don’t normally have yogurt for breakfast (I like them more for afternoon snacks) but I was so excited to try it. I’m so glad I like it!  Plus another 20 points. I’m on a roll this morning, I tell ya.

I’m off to eat breakfast #2 and hopefully get something done this morning!

What do you do when you know you’re suppose to be doing something productive yet you’re sure your kid is going to wake up any minute so instead you watch the clock and get nothing done because you’re still in shock that he’s sleeping and so you can’t really get anything done?

(You’re welcome for that question.)

Happy Friday!

  1. Haha – I tend to be least productive in times like that – it seems surreal when my kids are still sleeping when they are usually awake so I just sit there waiting patiently for them to wake up – haha!!!

    Anyway, I'm so glad you posted about the yogurt b/c I've been wanting to try those. I am SUPER picky about yogurt – I cannot eat it if there are fruit chunks in it – it totally grosses me out – haha! So I'm always stuck eating vanilla (boring) or Key Lime (too sugary sometimes) – now I'll be sure to pick some up this weekend when at the store – thanks! 🙂

  2. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one sitting around being unproductive during sleeping in and naps!!!
    I usually start off in Google Reader and then spend the next 3 hours wasting time online instead of cleaning or doing other things I “should” be doing.

  3. I just came across your blog….and thought I'd say hi!

    Those are my favorite yogurts too! I also hate yogurt with fruit chunks. The thought of it makes me want to gag! But these yogurts are amazing. I love the strawberry, but the raspberry is my favorite.
