Naughty or nice?

I was pretty naughty and ended up watching a LOT of movies. And Gossip Girl. Mostly movies.

Why is it that there are TONS of Christmas movies, Halloween movies, and even Easter movies, but almost none about Thanksgiving? I remembered just in time about Home For The Holidays just in time to get it for the weekend from Netflix. It's pretty fantastic; kind of Christmas Vacation in November.

I also watched Lovers of the Arctic Circle, which was certainly not a jolly holiday treat, but it was a treat all the same. Sometimes I wish I new a lot of foreign languages (this was from Spain) just so I'd be able to watch films in their original tongue!

This morning I had one of Gina's breakfast cookies (inspired by Jenna). I made it a little differently than last time:

1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 scoop pumpkin
1 small scoop almond butter
1/2 mashed banana
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons skim milk

De-lish. Now I have two breakfasts I can make in advance and not have to worry about cooking up in the morning!

I'm going to Wayzata in a little to have lunch with my grandparents. Have lovely Sundays!

I love Christmas movies, but you're right, there are no Thanksgiving movies that I can think of!

Your breakfast cookie looks yummy. Some day I'll try Gina's recipe, but in the morning I'm always craving a warm creamy soft bowl....ESP. with this frigid weather!

I really need to make the breakfast cookie one of these days.
