A Wonderful Start To My Saturday!

Good morning friends!!
Just sharing my Saturday morning!!

Sigh......Just beautiful :)  I usually work on Saturdays, but today we have the day off because of a Benefit for a friend, that my sister and brother in law are working at.  So, I decided to treat myself to a delicious cup of fun coffee.  Now, every cup of coffee is fun to me, but this one is a yummy, sweet, cup of deliciousness.  First I wanted to show off my new coffee cup I bought.  I found it at T.J. Maxx for just $4.99.  Yay!  I just love a new coffee cup.  For me, it just makes coffee that much better when you drink it out of a beautiful or fun cup :)  My first coffee of the morning was just regular coffee with a little creamer.  It was only 15 calories.  Now, my second cup was my fun coffee.  It has Vanilla Cinnamon Creamer, Fat Free Ready Whip, and Cinnamon sprinkles on top!  The creamer was 35 calories and 1 gram of fat per tablespoon, and I used 2 tablespoons.  The Ready Whip is just 5 calories and 0 fat per 2 tablespoons, so of course I used about 4.  So my total calories for this creamy goodness was around 80 with 2 grams of fat.  Really not to bad for heaven in a cup :)  Sometimes you just have to splurge, and I never regent doing it with coffee :)   

Last night I met Blayne out for dinner.  I ended up ordering a cheese pizza, which was delicious, but probably wasn't good for my calorie intake.  I only had 3 small pieces and I figured, I worked out in the morning and ate really well all day, so I'm not to worried. Besides, I was with my daughter and doesn't that make all food free of calories??  Anyway, it defiantly makes it all better :)  

Later today Greg, Blayne and I plan on going to the Benefit and hopefully win something at the Chinese Auction!!  Wish me luck :) 

So, I spent my morning snuggled up with a blanket, my kindle fire and my hot cup of yummy coffee.  Looking out my window at this amazing morning, I felt absolutely wonderful!!

Have a wonderful Saturday!!
