Monday Monday

Gooood Morning!

Hope your wake-up wasn’t as difficult as mine was! (To the point that I didn’t even hear the alarm going off until it was in full swing for about 5 minutes). Apparently, I was exhausted.

If you missed any of this whirlwind weekend’s posts, you can check ’em out here:

Bridal Shower!

Birthday Booze Cruise

I woke up starving this morning and in the mood for some fruits, veggies and filling protein (powder).

Obviously even in the cloud, fog and cold weather, a smoothie made the cut.

Green Monster Sludge

  • 1 C 1% milk
  • Whole Foods Frozen Mixed Berry Concoction (I would have looked at the label to see what it was comprised of but since I don’t even remember making my smoothie I was so tired, that clearly didn’t happen)
  • 1 Scoop Elite Vanilla Protein Powder (I finally looked at the brand that boyfriend buys! If you like Whey Protein, this stuff is TASTY.)
  • Agave Nectar
  • Couple shakes of cinnamon
  • Large handful of spinach

Hit the spot. I chugged it the instant I got to work.

Speaking of protein powder, I’ve been so very intrigued by all the positive reviews for SunWarrior Protein Powder, and today the stars aligned.

I don’t have any chocolate protein powder (I’ve been making “chocolate” protein shakes with Vanilla Protein and cocoa powder) and Gina is doing an amazing promotion for it via Open Sky.

So I bit the bullet, took the sale price, and it will be delivered shortly.


I’ve only ever used Whey Protein so I’m both skeptical and excited to try this “Raw, Vegan” protein powder.

Some benefits?

  • Made with 80% protein, Sunwarrior has the Highest (non soy) raw (Not Heated over 90 Degrees) whole grain sprouted vegan protein on the market.
  • Highest Net Protein Utilization score of any vegetable based protein and the highest ratio of amino acids converted to proteins.
  • Sunwarrior is created with a Low Temperature natural Enzyme process that does not use any chemicals or acid hydrolysis (like most proteins do).

I’ve heard nothing (seriously, nothing) but rave reviews about Sun Warriors and when the price is right… well we all know I have no problems rationalizing purchases. 😉

Just like Kimmy K has no problem crashing her fiance’s bachelor party while she was having her own at the club next door.

With that, it’s time to close some deals and take some names… see you after lunch!

Are you an impulse shopper or do you think/research things through?

Are you a sucker for a good deal?

I used to be an impulse shopper but now I’m really, really trying to think things through and research before making purchases. If it’s something I already want, and it magically and miraculously is on sale, I love finding a great deal!

  1. i am a major impulse buyer! ive been better about it since getting married. im a spender and hes not so im trying to work on that. its so hard though!! its easier with food to buy things impulsively i guess bc its cheaper..unlike clothes.

    id love to hear how u like sunwarrior!

  2. Your weekend looks like such a blast! How fun! I love weekends like that. Although, they always make the next weekend pale in comparison.

    I really need to jump on the smoothie train as it seems like everyone’s into them (I’m just not a fan of the whole cleaning-the-blender thing after).

    I used to be such an impulse buyer, but the last few years I realize I would like to retire at some point and a lot of the things I want, I end up not caring about shortly thereafter. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put items into my “online shopping cart” and then stared at them for 10-15 minutes before exiting out and not getting whatever it was. If I’m still thinking about the item the next week or so, I do end up getting it (but only if it’s a good deal!).
