Hel-lo middle of the week! How nice to see you!
Excuse me while I freak out for one second…
MAY 1 = ONE MONTH UNTIL WEDDING!!!! YIIIIIIIKES!
Okay. I’m okay. Things are good. Things are coming along. I am going to remain calm.
Anyway. Today, I’m going to do a post that doesn’t require much thinking. I’m just going to share some photos that made their way onto my phone but never actually made their way into a blog post. I always take lots and lots of pictures but don’t always dedicate a post to them! No need to worry, though…because they always tend to make their way into some type of recap post like the one we have here today!
Such randomness, I know! Some good…some bad…all tasty!
I’ll see you all later with a ‘1 month to go’ wedding post! I hope you have a marvelous day!
With much Love and Laughter,
Something to share: Do you take a lot of photos with your phone? I do…I haven’t have an actual camera in my hands in forever!!
Hey Friends! Good afternoon!
We have made it to the middle of the week and it’s all downhill from here, right!? Today, we had a winter storm move in and dump many inches of snow but, then, the temperature went right back up and most of it has melted. Boo. If there is one thing I love, it’s a winter storm and, unfortunately, I don’t feel like we have had enough lately. Oh well. I guess warmer temperatures just mean that summer is on the way!
Even though we had a deep blanket of the white stuff this morning, I woke up and wanted an iced coffee. I have not craved one of those in a long time so I didn’t even fight in and just made myself one! I counteracted my cold coffee with a warm bowl of oats. I added a couple of drops of NuNatural’s liquid Cocoa Stevia, some honey, and a scoop of PB.
I spent most of my morning reading some blogs and going over some new Jazzercise routines. A few hours later, I was hungry again and decided it was time to throw some lunch together. I had some peppers that were starting to wilt so I decided to use them in a quick quinoa pilaf. I made regular quinoa but added some chicken bouillon, red and yellow bell peppers, black eyed peas, and mushrooms. It was delicious, filling, and a great way to use up the left over veggies and beans!
I had to go into work later in the afternoon and Lee had a couple of court cases so we rode in together. On the way there and back, we were discussing our finances and the fact that our wedding is SO close!! Less than three months!? Are you serious!? Anyway, we were talking about our bills and how we could save a few more bucks every month. I hate conversations about money. I mean, absolutely loathe them. Oh well. Those are the things adults need to deal with!
We just switched our cable company last week, which is going to save us about $70 a month (and we even added a phone line!! We were paying WAY too much!) and I have been meal planning, which has been saving us a little more when it comes to grocery shopping. We have decided to look over our cell phone bills and also our car and home insurance to see if there are any costs that we can cut there. I’m hoping we can find a few more ways to save…Every little bit helps!
Alright, well, I’m off to get some dinner in the oven and plan out my workout for the evening! I’m thinking TurboFire…
See you all later!
With much Love and Laughter,
Something to share: Please share your budgeting tips and tricks! Do you make a budget? Have you found ways to cut your spending? Is there anything you sacrifice each month to save a few dollars?
So, sometimes, I’m impatient and sometimes I’m crazy. Sometimes, I find something I like and need it, like, every single second of my life. Sometimes, I’m a little bit dramatic, too. I guess it all comes with the territory. You see, yesterday I went to work without a lunch. I … Keep Reading….Pin It
Oh Mondays. How I loathe you. Actually, I’m kidding. Mondays are not as bad now that I don’t absolutely hate my job. Mondays have actually become one of my favorite days of the week. I know. I’m not really sure what I’m saying either. Let’s move on. Crap. I think … Keep Reading….
I love kohlrabi. I mean really love. The funny thing is, though, is that I have never gotten one in a store and I have never seen them anywhere else except in my grandparent’s garden. I used to think they were so cool when I was little and I was … Keep Reading….
Sometimes crazy things happen over here. For example: sometimes I trip over my dog in my driveway and give myself a bloody knee sometimes I buy flowers to plant and forget to water them sometimes I have a to-do list a mile long and immediately throw it out the window … Keep Reading….
Hi Friends! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, whether you celebrated Easter, Passover, or just relaxed! Did you have a long weekend or get any extra time off of work or school? Unfortunately, I didn’t. Boo for that but Yay for those of you that did! The weekend flew … Keep Reading….
Hi Friends! Happy Tuesday! I must say, my Tuesday is starting off much better than my Monday did. Much. Much. Better. My Monday started around 3am when I woke up with the worst pain in my ear. Sunday afternoon, my ear felt a little uncomfortable, almost like it was clogged … Keep Reading….
Hi Friends! Happy Wednesday! I feel like this week has been absolutely crazy and we have only been through two days! Work seems like it gets crazier by the minute! For example, yesterday I was saying things like… “If this phone rings one more time, I’m going to smash it … Keep Reading….
Phew! What a lengthy title!! It is totally fitting, though, because I actually took a picture of every single thing I ate yesterday. I usually document all of my major meals, but sometimes I skip some snacks or I have to use recycled pictures of my cereal and oatmeal because, … Keep Reading….
