Funfetti Amy

by Brittany on August 13, 2011

Let me begin by saying that for all of you who played “Guess That Plate” in my last post & thought that my plate was Exhibit C, you were correct! ;) I knew that you guys wouldn’t let me down (especially with greens in the picture…literally)

Anyway, I hope all of you are enjoying the beginning of your weekend! My Saturday was filled of funfetti cookies, new iPhone discoveries, and a Starbucks chat with an old friend.

For lunch, I threw together a monster salad:

Romaine lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, cottage cheese, alfalfa sprouts, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

Then I was off to Starbucks with these babies in hand:

for this pretty lady’s birthday (which was on Wednesday):

Amy and I used to perform together in shows at the theater and have been friends for a very long time. She’s one of those friends that would do absolutely anything for someone and has always been there for me no matter what. I’m actually pretty confident that I could ask this girl to cut off her arms and legs for me and she would. THAT is how great of a person she is ;)

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see Amy on her real birthday so I attempted to make it up to her by baking a batch of my homemade funfetti cookies (which I have not yet released the recipe for)

She seemed to be pleased :)

The Starbucks was freezing inside for some reason, so I decided to go with a hot drink. (Yes, I’m in Miami & yes, it is summer.)

I went with a Grande China Green Tips green tea.

Bueno :)

As soon as I got home, I wanted a cold drink. Go figure.

Enter: Strawberries & Crème Smoothie

Now I’m going to play more with my new toy and hang out with the cute boy sitting to my right. Enjoy the rest of your day!

A bit to think about: Do you usually order hot or cold drinks?


Do you have a cutie sitting to your right? ;)

I love Funfetti! :)

Your smoothie looks delicious too. I did have a cutie sitting next to me, but he left for awhile! ;)

Funfetti is simply the greatest thing ever. That is all :)
Well that smoothie looks fantastic as well, had to mention that!

How sweet of you! And *Happy Birthday* to your great friend, those kind are priceless!!! :) …. Score, Plate C!!! ……Have fun with that toy!
I always crave hot drinks when it’s hot outside and cold drinks when I’m cold. I’m always OFF!!! I drink a lot of frozen/blended drinks in the winter, and I’m the coldest person I know. Go figure!

Haha your comments ALWAYS make me laugh out loud– no doubt :)


Danielle Spellman @Squirrel Snackin' August 13, 2011 at 5:48 pm

I did have a cutie too but now he’s downstairs playing video games….sigh. lol Yummy lookin smoothie too! I’ve been wanting to make a peaches n’ cream version!


Itty Bits of Balance August 14, 2011 at 9:48 am

Don’t worry– video games used to be a vice of Will’s to haha!
& peaches and cream sounds DELICIOUS!


Michelle @ Crazy*Running*Legs August 13, 2011 at 6:31 pm

I ALWAYS go with a hot drink. Even though it’s Florida — it’s freezing in the A/C :)

I hope you are having SO much fun with your phone! I love mine :)


Sarah @ Feeeding Brain and Body August 13, 2011 at 6:42 pm

If I’m inside and the air conditioning is on I order a hot drink. I love the Starbucks china green tips tea!


Suzi @ Confessions of a Fitness Instructor August 13, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Everything is more fun with funfetti!

I kind of flip back and forth, normally in the summer I stick with cool drinks but I had a latte just the other day so I guess I’m not too picky one way or the other.


Anna @ Food Fitness Frolicking August 13, 2011 at 8:13 pm

Hot drinks in the summer are not weird AT ALL. I love a hot coffee or hot tea on a hot day..well, only if I’m in an air conditioned starbucks, that is :)


Itty Bits of Balance August 14, 2011 at 10:15 am

Haha I’m glad I’m not alone :D


Amanda @ .running with spoons. August 13, 2011 at 8:16 pm

I have a cutie sleeping on my feet, if that counts? I don’t know why my puppy feels the need to warm my feet when it’s the middle of summer, but I guess it’s the thought that counts :D And I order a mix of hot and cold drinks when I’m out, depending on how I’m feeling. Sometimes I want a hot coffee, and sometimes I want it on the rocks ;)


Lindsay Loves Veggies August 13, 2011 at 9:16 pm

I got back and forth between hot and cold drinks depending on the weather or whether or not I’m running hot or cold on that particular day.

Amy’s a lucky girl to get such an awesome batch of cookies for her birthday! You’re such a good friend! :)


Itty Bits of Balance August 14, 2011 at 10:19 am

Thank you :)


sunshine August 13, 2011 at 9:31 pm

I love funfetti! I usually do hot or cold drinks. Depends on my mood…


Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel August 13, 2011 at 11:19 pm

Funfetti – i’d love to shake the hands of the person who invented such a happy food idea! These cookies are insane- see how happy they make a person haha <3 <3



Sarah F August 14, 2011 at 12:18 am

LOVE funfetti!! I am way too unpredictable with hot vs. cold drinks, I’m an always hot kind of gal but man oh man Idaho can get hot outside so I have gotten cold drinks a whole lot more lately. I’m excited you got an iPhone, are you just loving it?? I’m getting one as soon as they release the 5, I HOPE that it happens in September but my hubs thinks now it might be later… I’m dieing for it, I want it soooooooooooo bad. You should download Boggle and TextTwist; can you tell I like word games?!!


Itty Bits of Balance August 14, 2011 at 10:33 am

Haha I was thinking about downloading Words With Friends! Everyone goes crazy for that game!

I can’t wait for you to get the new iPhone 5! I went from zero to iPhone so ANY iPhone was a great change for me haha


Sweet and Savvy August 14, 2011 at 8:26 am

Those cookies look so great! :)

And I definitely order hot or cold drinks based on if I’ve been hot or if it is cold in the room I am in. Seasons? Psh.. those don’t matter.


Leashieloo August 14, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Funfetti is my favorite! Please post the recipe soon, they look amazing!
