where have you been?

11 Apr

Hey!  How is the end of your weekend treating ya?  I love Sundays, but I’m not too crazy about Sunday nights because I start feeling not too excited about the week ahead.  Do you ever feel bummed out on Sunday nights at the thought of starting the work week?  Or do you feel excited about the coming days?

Honestly, I don’t have a whole lot of exciting things for you tonight…sorry!  We have just had kind of a lax day.  I did snap a quick shadowy shot of breakfast

This bowl included 1/3 cup oats, 3/4 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp almond butter, a couple of spoonfuls of soy yogurt and homemade granola.  I’ll never tire of this combination – the toppings are where it’s at!  This granola is a homemade recipe that I created.  I’m on a misison to create the best clean granola I’ve ever had, and while this one wasn’t quite it, it was pretty close.  It was definitely tasty enough to sprinkle on for breakfast!  As soon as I hit it, I’ll let you guys know, but until then…onward and upward!!

The rest of the day was spent napping, grading essays, going to visit some friends, working on some projects and watching Amazing Race.  Tonight they were in Singapore, which was so fun because Jon and I were just there about a year ago.  We saw some of the same places we had been – fun!  Here are some pics from our time there

They ate ice cream sandwiches exactly like this on the show tonight

China town

The contestants took an overnight train from Malaysia just like we did, and I swear we saw this same sign on TV when they got off the train.  It was definitely the same station.  Ah, memories:)

Have you been on any international vacations?  What has been your favorite place to visit?  Jon and I are planning an international vacation for this summer, and we are trying to decide where we want to go.  We’ve been to Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan.  Any suggestions on great destinations?  I’d love to hear about your favorite trip!!

Apologies for the lack of food pics tonight.  Hope you all have a great start to the week tomorrow!!

    Great pictures of Singapore- I’d love to go there! Fave place so far, not sure but I’m leaning towards South Africa. Would love to go there again.

    Not a fan of Sunday nights either but last night we went attended our local pub quiz with friends and it definitely got rid of those sunday evening blues. Shame it’s monday now though 🙂
