Holy cow… I had to post their bunny brownie… Look how cute he is! Marco’s little cousins love him and take such good care of him. I swear, he’s like the family dog! He’s so cute and playful too.

For dessert around 5:30 I had a small slice of pumpkin pie with one scoop of coffee ice cream

I ate slowly and totally enjoyed this dessert. I had it with a cup of decaf coffee 🙂

As the Holidays are approaching, I know many of you are getting nervous about how much food will be around. One suggestion I have is to choose to have the dessert when you really want it. I am offered dessert probably every single day, and I am sure you are too. Do I have it every time I’m offered? No, because I wouldn’t feel good and having dessert everyday would go against the definition of a treat.

treat
trēt/
noun
  1. 1.
    an event or item that is out of the ordinary and gives great pleasure.

I like to enjoy my dessert when I know I’ll be satisfied by just enough (not the whole pie), when I am in good company, when I know I can eat it slowly, and when there is decaf Coffee around to go with it 🙂

4:30 Dinner at Urbane Cafe with my Marco. Our fridge was empty, and Urbane sounded like the worlds best meal. I chose a chicken sandwich this time, and it was incredible. So satisfying and held me through the rest of the night.

Alrighty guys! I am off to pick up my Fresh Picks box and then back to work 🙂 Have a great day!

Love, Paige
