Howdy Everyone! Today I am linking up with Lauren from 'My Grey Desk' blog and telling you about the five things I am excited about this Friday.
Tonight we are going to hang out with friends at a bar/restaurant and watch some basketball. We have been cooped up in the house all week, so we are excited to get out, he is excited to drink and I am excited to pretend to watch basketball.
My college basketball bracket is doing awesome so far.
I am only going to talk about it this once, I swear (maybe twice).
I am not going to pretend to be that 'cool girl' who knows about basketball and March Madness and what not. I don't know about it really and I am not super interested, but I am competitive and this really stimulates the urge I have to beat my husband at all games.
So far, I am kicking his butt. Hard.
Rock Chalk Jayhawk all the way!
I made this banana bread yesterday and it is super awesome.
It is oil free, sugar free and I made it using a mixture of oat and whole wheat flour. It is delicious, really moist and not that sweet (it uses the dates and bananas for sweetness).
When you split the loaf into eight slices, only 193 calories per slice.
(If you make the recipe, I made the following changes ...
* Original called for 2 cups whole wheat flour, I did 1.5 cups whole wheat flour, .5 cups oat flour;
* Original called for 1 tsp cinnamon, I did 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead;
* Original called for 2 cups mashed bananas, I only had enough bananas on hand for 1.25 cups mashed, so I added organic unsweetened applesauce for the other .75 of a cup;
* I also added 1 tsp vanilla just because I am wild like that)
We finished Downton Abbey season 2 last night.
I laughed, I cried, I cheered.
We went running today for the first time since the marathon. We only went two miles, but it was good to get everything moving. I am still surprisingly sore in odd places (i.e. tops of my feet) and felt tired even after two miles.
So that's all the awesomeness I got for now, but can I just talk about one thing I am super bummed about??
Who the hell at ABC decided to cancel Bachelor Pad??
In my superior to the execs at ABC's opinion, it was the best reality/game/dating show ever! It had everything I wanted!
Drama, romance, comedy!
It was the Shakespeare of our time.
I literally gasped out loud when I read about the cancellation today. I had been looking forward to it all year and now....it's not going to happen.
I need to make a petition.
