[Caribou Coffee}

Oh lakeview how I miss thee.  I sit here in caribou coffee and not everyone’s favorite, Starbucks. Even more defiantly having apple crisp oatmeal and chai tea in the middle of the day instead of a mid day pick me up coffee on a real wooden table. Take that Starbucks! I don’t know how I got here, yes I do, I triumphed over one of life’s many hastles and felt like a reward. Take that life! I win this one! As I walked back to my car triumphantly I realized where I was and my brain,  always on the lookout for the quickest reward,  directed me here. Throwing caution and health to wind I order a delicious autumn apple crisp, full of fall goodness, warm your heart oatmeal and a spicey creamy cloud of chai silk liquid comfort.  Yes, those are the actual names, order like that next time you’re in there. “To go?” she asks.  “No!” I reply, “for here!” I will put the day on pause. Will it to stand still for a moment of victory before I move on to the next battle. I spy I guy I went to art class with, couldn’t decide where I knew him from till he got up to leave. That always happens, can I be the only one who thinks everyone they run into is someone they dreamt up or from waaaaay in the past and so it can’t possibly be them? I hate when people stop to say “hi” and my brain isn’t finished processing there face yet. Okay, where do I know them from, out of state? Out of country ? Community college? University? Dance class? Church? The Gym maybe? A mash up of people I once knew all in one face and perhaps I don’t know them at all?? That must be it, I’ll avert my eyes, maybe they won’t notice me, or won’t insist on me remembering them. Nope.  Didn’t work. “Hi! , how are you!!!!”

Why do I feel like I’m in a cabin when I’m here? Why don’t i come here more often?

There is such a thing as a stupid request.

I was casually dating a guy. He was the sort of guy that was nice enough, but not really my type overall as I was quickly realizing. You know the guys that it would be better to have just been friends as opposed to date? He fell into that category…hence the “casually dating”. I was planning on ending it myself, but I knew he was really stressed with work (so I was barely seeing him anyway) so I figured I’d wait at least a little bit to not add to the stress.

One day, he came over to my house for dinner. I had just made an amazing lasagna with wild mushrooms from my local farmer’s market. I couldn’t wait to eat it.

I didn’t realize there was going to be a slight delay.

He walked in, sat down on…

I recently went on a kick of Oatmeal and fresh berries. I add Cinnamon, Honey, fresh Berries and Almonds and dig in. Sometimes I don’t have time to make this in the morning but luckily theres a spot on the way to work were I can get the same thing in Quinoa form. I took a chance and tried it, now I’m in trouble, I fell in love and want it everyday! Sometimes I order it for lunch and even dinner. Their’s contains Cinnamon, agave nectar, quinoa, strawberries, blueberries and almond slivers. Mmmm, I must try this with Pecans!!!! This even works as desert, or a snack!
