This day started off on a super high note. How could it not with this for breakfast?
Hello, fabulous. Looking mighty fine. I nabbed two thick slices of my Pumpkin Carrot Cake Bread I whipped up yesterday afternoon along with a banana for my breakfast this morning.
It looks like a small breakfast, but it was actually really filling and satisfying. That bread is so dense, but still so moist, chewy, and nutty. It’s perfection. As Chandler would say.
I also had two cups of coffee because I simply had to go back for a second cup. I didn’t have iced coffee ready (sad day) so had to settle with the hot stuff. I figured if I was going to make hot coffee and have some pumpkin flavah, then why not do some pumpkin coffee?
I tossed a hefty sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice directly into my coffee grounds and brewed up my coffee. It gives it a subtle pumpkin taste, but such a rich aroma.
How I get my pumpkin coffee fix most of the time. Have to save on the moolah.
After breakfast and reading/playing with the kids for awhile, I decided to actually shower before 10 am today. It’s a rare occurrence. I even remembered to put on my everyday body lotion with SPF.
Yet another thing I have been slacking on. I’m good at remembering the SPF face lotion, but I haven’t been on top of my game with the body lotion. Why did it matter today? Because in my mind it will keep my dermatologist from scolding me for being overdue for a check-up.
Kind of like flossing the week you have a dentist appointment or taking extra time to style your hair before a salon visit.
So, I had the pleasure of spending an hour of my day getting looked over head to toe. Well, only about 20 minutes was the actual check-up. Why do doc offices insist you spend most of your waiting time naked in paper robes staring at a white wall? Just how I want to spend my time.
The visit went well though. I had one mole removed to get tested…which seems to happen every time. I’m not too concerned but better safe than sorry. I’m just a mole-y, freckle-y gal. Which automatically makes me think of that scene from Austin Powers with the mole. Moley moley moley moley. Moooolllllleeeeeeee.
Well, I think I better end that post here before I spew any other randomness at you. Hope you’re having a great afternoon!
- Do you regularly visit a dermatologist?
- Do you do anything to “special prep” for certain appointments?
