The Friday Creep

May 20, 2011


Anyone else feel the Friday Creep? The pace of the world begins to slow a bit. Less emails arrive in my inbox. Brains start pondering weekend plans – like dinner out tonight! The weekend is creeping up behind us.

I went to Body Pump and then headed home on my bike for a quick lunch. I’m headed to the bakery right after I finish typing – word is our sign company is there installing the new interior signs!




I made a half batch of Lavender Crunch Hummus and served in on literally the last fresh food in this house! The end of a container of spinach, a lone orange we got from the Montalto race 2 weekends ago, Cinnamon Chip with a dazzle of honey! [Yes, dazzle, not drizzle!]




Despite being old, this orange was surprisingly juicy!




And in honor of Tina’s cookie Friday – I ate the last of my aunts mini oatmeal secret recipe cookies from the freezer!


Hard Core

The winner of the CORE bag was Caroline M! I emailed her just now, so if your name is also Caroline M., I apologize for not having a better way to announce the winners!

Happy Weekend!!!!

I was hoping I would win the core bag, oh shucks! Hope you will have an Open Sky promo on it soon.

Even my Body Pump instructor on Friday is not as energetic as the one on Monday. Maybe she is feeling the Friday creep too.

I cant wait to see the interior signs!! Looking forward to the big opening day!!

haha what a funny name! Yeahhh I noticed more and more the friday creep when I started blogging not too long ago. I guess it’s because everyone’s somehow connected and you can see it more visually perhaps? Have a beautiful day Kath!

So, when I first read the title I thought you meant “creep” as in a creepy guy or something. I thought–hmm, this should be a good story!!! Clearly, that was not where you were going with that, lol.


5 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat May 20, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Yes, I’m definitely feeling the Weekend Creep and I can’t wait for it to get here! 2 1/2 more hours to go!! Wooot! That photo of the little red flower is so gorgeous. Have fun at the bakery!


6 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope May 20, 2011 at 1:40 pm

So exciting how close everything is getting for the bakery!!! :)

This lunch presentation is PERFECT! Definitely a fabulous, light, Friday meal!


7 Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food May 20, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Happy weekend to you too! :)

I LOVE simple salads with greens and hummus that looks delicious! :)


8 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table May 20, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Friday has been creepin’ on me since Thursday. Whew. I must be super excited for the end of the world. :)

Cookie Friday?! Yesssss, please!


9 Estela @ Weekly Bite May 20, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Happy Friday :)


10 Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) May 20, 2011 at 1:45 pm

“Anyone else feel the Friday Creep? The pace of the world begins to slow a bit”–YES I feel that, always!

And yay for less emails.

And to prove i DO read, I think you mean to say ate, not hate, here:
“And in honor of Tina’s cookie Friday – I hate the last of my aunts mini oatmeal secret recipe cookies from the freezer!”

Because those look like pure love, no hatin’ there :)

Enjoy your weekend, Kath!


11 KathEats May 20, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Haha – yes – oops! I am just full of typos this week!


12 Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen May 20, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Gorgeous lunch – I’m always so jealous of all that amazing bread.


13 [email protected] Flying ONION May 20, 2011 at 2:05 pm

Fridays are so delicious. Enjoy your weekend, Kath!!! 😀


14 kim May 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm

I have never had honey on bread before… you’ve convinced me. I’ll have to wait until June 3rd to try it!!


15 Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews May 20, 2011 at 2:22 pm

I sort of get that with Fridays. Mostly the work day goes by soooo slow because I look at the clock constantly because I want to start my weekend ASAP!


16 Natalie @ Will Jog For Food May 20, 2011 at 2:27 pm

YAY! It’s Friday :) The slowest & best day of the week. My favorite time of the week is Friday at 5:31 because that’s when I just leave from work and have the whole weekend ahead of me!!


17 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 20, 2011 at 2:36 pm

I’m with you on the Friday Creep! Seems like the world starts slowing down and amping up for the weekend!


18 Caroline @ French Ponytail May 20, 2011 at 2:40 pm

I wish I felt a Friday creep! No one at my job seems to respect Friday afternoons as a time for forward-thinking and relaxation (nor do they particularly respect weekends, for that matter, so maybe that explains it).


19 Kate @ NaturaStride May 20, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Happy weekend to you, too!! Salad looks yummy, so does the cookie.
In addition to the “friday creep” – I also get the friday afternoon ADD and can’t seem to concentrate on ANYTHING!! :)


20 Krissie J May 20, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Your lunch looks way better than mine was! :) Happy weekend!


21 Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles May 20, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Woo, weekend! Isn’t it just the best feeling? Enjoy dinner out tonight. :)


22 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs May 20, 2011 at 3:09 pm

Man – your posts remind me often of where I’m working towards being. A few years ago I was a regular at BodyStep, Pump, and Jam but I didn’t eat well. Now I eat really well but don’t have much time for gym classes or workouts that aren’t with a running group or ultimate frisbee. I’d love to get to a point where I can cook my meals, attend fun gym classes and still have time for me! Your lunch looks divine, btw. I love that your salads tend to be so simple and easy!!


23 Joanne May 20, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Things do get quiet come the weekend. Guess the focus is on family -where it should be :)
You guys are making quite the progress with the new store. You must be getting more and more excited every day. What an exciting year!


24 Tori (Fresh Fruition) May 20, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Crunchy hummus sounds so good! And I’m feeling the week slowing down, too. It feels like the minutes are passing slower than ever.


25 Michelle (The Runner's Plate) May 20, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Kind of a random question. . . how long did Matt work at Great Harvest before you guys pursued opening your own store?


26 KathEats May 20, 2011 at 3:43 pm

2 years!


27 Penny May 20, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Between your blog and the pictures of your husband baking, nothing has ever made me crave BREAD so much in my life. I’ve never been to a Great Harvest, but I think I need to hunt one down.


28 lynn @ the actor's diet May 20, 2011 at 4:03 pm

woah friday really crept up on me – i had no idea it was the weekend already!


29 Emily @ Savory and Savage May 20, 2011 at 4:04 pm

That bread looks delicious!

Happy weekend to you too :-)


30 Angela (Oh She Glows) May 20, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Oh how I love the Friday Creep. It’s sheer bliss for the inbox. Only if it were empty that would be even better!


31 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife May 20, 2011 at 4:19 pm

I love when Friday creeps up on me! SO happy it is here :)


32 Kate May 20, 2011 at 4:42 pm

ahh that hummus looks delicious!


33 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles May 20, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Happy Weekend to you, also. Impressed you made such a nice lunch out of almost nothing.


34 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) May 20, 2011 at 5:19 pm

I definitely feel the creep! I also am taking a 4 day weekend so I am very excited :)


35 Melissa @ Journey to Marvelous May 20, 2011 at 5:29 pm

For being the last fresh food in the house, it still looks like a yummy lunch! Happy weekend!


36 kaila @ healthy helper! May 20, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Happy weekend is RIGHT! I am so excited to just relaaaax….too bad I have 4 essays to write :(


37 Christine May 20, 2011 at 6:05 pm

I wish I had some creeepiness on my Friday! Things have been so hectic with end of the year teacher junk. Hopefully this weekend will be relaxing.


38 Kristi @ KristiAteIt May 20, 2011 at 7:28 pm

I’m so excited for the weekend! I for sure felt that “the weekend is just about here feeling”. It may have to do with the fact that I have a date night tomorrow at Melting Pot! :) I’m really looking forward to it.


39 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) May 20, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Whenever I use the last of whatever we have in the kitchen, it gives me a sense of accomplishment, lol. I hate wasting food, so it feels really good to finish what we started. :)


40 ilovefetacheese May 20, 2011 at 7:54 pm

you’ve gotten me hooked on honey salads. obsessed.


41 Angel7 May 20, 2011 at 7:55 pm

The flowers are gorgeous!

The orange livens up the greens.

The Grand Opening is right around the corner.


42 Kristen @ Change of Pace May 20, 2011 at 8:12 pm

I love watching your bakery grow! I’m sure you’ll get good pics of the signs!


43 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 20, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I definitely didn’t feel the Friday creep today. I work at a farm for the summer and it was an absolute zoo today!


44 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen May 20, 2011 at 8:38 pm

between that bread and the hummus that looks like such a good lunch!


45 Khushboo May 20, 2011 at 11:24 pm

Oh shucks I missed cookie friday! I guess I have no choice but to make up for it today ;)!


46 Hannah May 21, 2011 at 2:23 am

It’s already Saturday late afternoon here… wish it were Friday, so there was more time before back to work Monday! :S


47 Alyssa May 22, 2011 at 10:09 am

I made a HUGE batch of GF cornbread and I’ve been enjoying it with lots of honey!
