Just Because…

I poured my coffee out of my travel mug and into a real one this morning…
just because my car wouldn’t start and I had to wait for AAA to come fix it, which they could do [after I first called Papa Smart because by some skewed logic I thought he could remedy the situation—FROM PENNSYLVANIA (?)]…

just because Mama Smart renews my membership for me every year.

For breakfast, I had some yummy Total 2% Fage Greek yogurt, which I bought just because it was on dairy clearance. [Oh, and just because it’s awesome.]In it, I mixed Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch* and Berry Berry Kix, which I bought just because I thought that together they might taste like peanut butter & jelly cereal.
*As I look at this photo, I realize it’s actually called Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch, but who has ever called it that? Just because it’s ‘official’ doesn’t make it right.

Just because they don’t (not really), doesn’t mean I love them any less.

Speaking of cereal, I buy Life just because I think the crumblies at the bottom of the box are the greatest treat.I know I’ve told you this before. Just because I’ve told you once, doesn’t mean I don’t feel the need to tell you again. (And again.)

I bought two pineapples on Thursday afternoon just because Randall’s was having a one-day sale and they cost 99 cents apiece. I also bought a bag of baby carrots and a tub of mushrooms, just because the mushrooms were on sale, AND if I spent $5.00 I could use the $1.00 produce coupon in the Simple Nutrition pamphlet found at the front of the store. [I then tweeted about this deal and called it “Smart Nutrition” just because I was in the mindset of my Smart Kitchen.]I purposefully bought one of the pineapples slightly green, just because I ate an entire watermelon within two and a half days……and have already bought another one, so I need to let that second pineapple ripen ’til I’m ready for it. :)

I have a sweet new shopping bag from HEBjust because it’s Earth Day.

You should obtain Matt Wertz’s CD Weights & Wingsjust because the song “Feels So Right” will make you happy. [And just because the hippie chicks and airstream trailer in the video make me feel like he’s in Austin.]Speaking of Austin, I sent this article to Maria this morning, just because I think everyone should move here and be my friend in ‘real life,’ too.

My fifth grade girls got together and bought me this beautiful Easter egg full of Ferrero Rocher chocolates…just because…well, I don’t know why. Just because.

I took this ketchup packet left over from my co-workers Chick-fil-A lunch…just because it’s so cute (and I imagine will be fun to use).

I received this Love Grown Granola in the mail…just because I randomly won it in Mary‘s giveaway!I haven’t tried it yet, just because I was a little full. Why?

Well, I made brownies……into which I swirled some Butter Toffee Almond Butter…[I followed the same plan as when I had Butter Toffee Peanut Butter.]…and also some Cinn-almond Butter & Honey Banana Bread [adapted from the original PB & Honey recipe]…just because I was becoming a little overwhelmed with the sheer amount of nut butter in my pantry. [And obviously, I need to make space for more creations!]
These jars include the TJ’s Sunflower Seed Butter and Archer Farms Vanilla Cranberry PB that I refuse to eat, just because I have no idea when I’ll ever be able to buy them again. [The former, just because there is no Trader Joe’s within 605 miles of Austin, and the latter just because I’m pretty sure it has been discontinued. (#sadface) I’m also pretty sure they’ve stopped carrying the Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple ’round here, but I don’t want to talk about that either…just because it’s so darn good.]

And right now it’s 10 o’clock, and I’m not concerned about getting to bed within the next 30 minutes…just because I have a three day weekend starting tomorrow (today?)!

[I’m scheduling this to post, just because I don’t have to be up at any particular time. Not that I’ll be sleeping in...just because I can’t.]
