It’s Monday. Probably the best Monday of the year….because it’s my birthday! Birthdays definitely make Mondays a little less painful Plus it’s time for more bean bytes and that’s always a good thing.
Honest and real. Loved it!

Special shoutout to my girl Lisa who is running THE BOSTON MARATHON today!!! I’m wearing my shirt for moral support. Plus, she loves my cat almost as much as I do and she fondly calls him #plumporangebean– he wanted to make her a sign to cheer her on since even thinking about running a marathon wears him out.
