Beat the snow!

Alrighty. I beat the snow. I didn't realize that we are supposed to be getting over 6", so it would be nice if classes are canceled tomorrow :)

I went over to the Potomac Adventist Book and Health Food Store (finally!), but I didn't actually end up buying anything. I felt a little overwhelmed by the crowd of people and I like to have the chance to slow down and browse. Plus I didn't really need much that they had. Another time, especially if I keep seeing it on Foods That Fit. I did go to TJ's though, and picked up some odds and ends that I knew that I could get cheap there.

I picked up a few bars that I've been wanting to try. And of course I ate one as a snack on the way home :)

The LaraBar Cashew Cookie bar was my first experience with LaraBars. I've been seeing them forever, but I always thought they seemed pricey or too good to be true. I caved after reading about how much everyone loves them, though. And it was really good. Very soft with a nice cashew flavor. I seriously can't believe that it's just cashews and dates. Makes me wonder if I could make them...

When I got home, a little voice kept telling me to eat vegetables, but I really wanted to have something warm and sweet.

Whole wheat english muffin with Peanut Butter and Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams, 1/2 banana and a kiwi on the side. I'll have some veggies later :)

Time to tackle the rest of my chores!

    Hey Kara,

    Rachel shared with me the link to your blog..

    I love larabars but they can definitely be pricey. One of the other blogs I read, Oh She Glows, has a recipe to make the banana bread flavor one. It's a little work intensive but I'm sure it's great! Let me know how it turns out if you end up making it :)
