Things I Love Thursday - Fro-yo disguised as runner fuel

This is what almost a pound of fro-yo looks like. Half coconut, half peanut butter chocolate cookie, topped with Snickers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup crumbles, cookie dough pieces and two macaroons. I didn't even pretend to make it healthy. And I savored every bite. I was admittedly a little sick for the hour after it hit my stomach, but I have no regrets.

Then there's this little guy. He wanders around the house, bumping into walls and funiture. For those of you who haven't been properly introduced, this is Rowdy. He slowly went blind a few years ago and then had his eyes completely removed about two years ago because he had glaucoma. He also has Addison's disease, takes medicine for incontinence and is losing his hearing, but we love him. He's part of the family and has been around since before Grace and Ellie appeared on the scene. And when he gets his duck at bedtime, he's irresistible. Ever since he was a tiny puppy, he has brought us his stuffed animal to let us know he's ready to go to bed.

Then there's this. This is pretty much how I felt this morning. And looked. Who are we kidding; it's pretty much me every morning lately. Janae even asked if I was ok when she got to the pool yesterday because I looked pretty much like the last picture. Yep, I was ok; just tired. But pool time and the little bit of running (15 whole minutes!!) yesterday were worth getting up when the alarm went off.

Are you a morning person or a night person? I'm neither and both. I just need my eight hours of sleep.
What's your favorite fro-yo topping? I love Snickers and cookie dough. They are good on every flavor!!


  1. That FroYo looks amazing right now. I will take two.
    I am a morning person when I don't have to get up to go to work. If I have to go to work then I too resemble the above picture.

    1. I love that I'm not the only person who is only a morning person sometimes!!

      I think fro-yo should be on your weekend to-do list!!

    2. I am definitely a morning person, even if it takes me a bit to actually wake up. Ross is a night owl though, which makes things interesting. Sometimes I pretend I can be both, but it never works out in my favor;)

      In regards to your fro yo, go big or go home. I was quite envious actually:) Anything with pb or chocolate is my go to topping.

  2. I am most definitely a morning person. As in VERY early morning -- 4 am. I actually love the quiet time to myself and it's only hard when we go out late and I want to sleep in the next day, but can't.

    That fro yo looks kind of wonderful. I would enjoy that right about now.

    1. I totally understand staying up late and paying for it the next morning!!

  3. I use to be a morning person but since having kids...I LOVE LOVE LOVE my quiet evenings!!! Once they go to bed, my time starts and I find it hard to go to bed until late. Which then makes it easy to wake up very early.
    As for fro yo...haven't had it in forever!!! But yours looks DELICIOUS!
