Quick pick me up

I don't know about you all but it has been a CRAZY week for me.

It seems like every day this week I have had at least three or four things to get done or do.  Shopping, parties, babies, shopping, baking, shopping.......oh my!

Today was no different.  I had to get some more last minute shopping done.  It has been such a long week.  I decided I was going to treat myself today.

 
MG and I on our way to shop till we drop! (notice the bags under my eyes? Told you it has been a long week)

We had to run to Walmart so I decided to stop at Murphy USA for a quick pick me up.

 
Check out the price of gas!  It's finally starting to come down here!!

 
There were lot's of options, the prices were great as well!  I have never tried a true energy drink and since caffeine has pretty much the opposite affect on me, I decided not go the Red Bull route.  ;)

 
Ohh!!  Starbucks!  My fav!

 
I decided on the Vanilla Frap today, I usually get the Mocha but I have started to REALLY love the Vanilla.

I am so glad I stopped!  We shopped longer than I had planned, it was nice to have the extra pep in my step. 

I don't usually stop at Murphy USA, I don't know why...it is always on my way.  I was surprised at the selection they have.  Coke, Pepsi, plus just about any kind of candy you want.  The cashier was EXTREMELY nice as well.  I told her I was going to be writing this and she promised to read it so "HI!!!!"

I took a few more pics and you can see them over at Google+.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
