Stuffed, soggy and smooth.

20 Jun

Thanks for the compliments on the hair everyone! I am starting to get used to it and loving the style! If yesterday was all about the beauty for me, today was all about pampering for Lincoln.

He was given a nice belly rub this morning then held like a baby (I’m a little too crazy for this dog)

And besos aplenty!

Like me, he got his hair did but no highlights for the Linkster. Turns out one of my friends grooms her own dog and in effort to save $40 I asked her if she would trim Lincoln and she didn’t mind at all. Doesn’t he look like he’s planning something deliciously evil in this picture?

I made stuffed blueberry french toast this morning.  I prepared two slices of bread as normal and while that was cooking, microwaved 1/4 cup frozen blueberries and 2 tbsp cream cheese under warm and soft then spread on one of the pieces of french toast then topped with the other.

With a kiwi, apple and banana fruit bowl on the side

Fantastic, I liked using frozen blueberries a lot more than when I made this for the first time! I didn’t think I was going to be satisfied with just two pieces of bread but this + the fruit bowl really filled this girl up. I wish I could make a big breakfast everyday, sigh 😦

I caught up on some reading at the pool—I am halfway through this book and recommend it so far!

I got back in and took a long shower and then made a quick lunch—turkey and cheese sandwich on wheat with tomato, baby spinach with Tribe Forty Spices Hummus spread on both sides. This was my first time trying this brand of hummus and I loved it! It had a nice kick to it with a smooth pepper flavor. It was the perfect spread to give a boring turkey and cheese sandwich some pizzazz.

And picked up my pottery piece I made this last Sunday–it turned out cute-yay!

Soon, it was the time of day I despise most on Sundays-3P. This is optimal nap time however with my sleep issues, I can’t give into naps that often on Sundays. I was sitting down enjoying some Triscuits and Tribe Forty Spice Hummus.

I had Lincoln by my sat, Glamour in my hands and all was quiet, which it shouldn’t have been since i was doing laundry and should’ve been on spin by that time.  I went over and the water was just sitting there and I tried pulling the plug, starting over again and nothing. I rent by washer and dryer and called the company and left a message for their emergency maintenance but never heard back. I couldn’t let it just sit there right? I didn’t know what to do but get the water out so off to work I went. First, I took the clothes out and rung them out as well as I could. Holy balls, this took forever and was working my arms good!! Then I took two plastic cups and started on getting to work out of the washer. Which resulted in this bucket ……times five. Argh.

I threw the clothes in the dryer and only took about five hours to dry—can’t wait to see my electric bill next month!! Doing all that felt like a workout in a half from digging for water, carrying the bucket to the sink and pouring out then doing it again. Thank God I am moving in three weeks!

I had the last of my Reid’s salads for dinner–grilled chicken caesar with T Marzetti’s Light Ancho Chipotle Ranch….can ya tell I like this dressing?

This was probably the worst of the salads I had from Reid’s. The chicken looked seasoned but really had no flavor and it would’ve been nice if the croutons were packaged separately instead of getting all soggy.

I’ve been in such a rut with working out outside since the warm weather and humid hit but decided to get out after dinner and go for walk. I covered a little over two miles and it was nice to get out for a bit and enjoy the end of the evening as the sun was going down.

I really wanted to get some ice cream afterwards but didn’t have any on hand so I made a smoothie with almond milk, ice and Spirutein Cookies N Cream Protein Mix. I loved this! I could smell the cookies n creaminess when I poured it into the blender and definitely will buy this again—for smoothies or desserts in general!

I’m feeling kinda blah right now and feel like I have a headache coming on.I feel like I did so much today and have been up forever but I’ve only been up 13 hours-ay chihuahua! Sooooo……apologies if this post isn’t so fun or witty. On another note, I kind of feel good about tomorrow. I am not going into work knowing I will be slammed (and not in a good way) from the minute I walk in until the minute I leave. I will get to take a break, a lunch break and be treated like a human! Let’s see if the case of the Mondays makes an appearance or not…..

    I hope that headache never came… it’s the worst when they slowly creep up.

    I swear if I ever feel the need to try a new hummus, I’m coming to you. Because clearly you’re the expert… :p

    Happy Monday- hopefully work won’t be too swamped for ya!

      Oh it came long and hard (that’s what she said), I think it was from working out in the humidity though b/c I was fine before that who knows.

      I am the Hummus Queen—I can dip anything!!

    Yum, that french toast looks stellar! I wish I had more time to make big breakfasts as well! Usually, if I’m craving a hearty breakfast, I have to make it for dinner or wait until the weekend.

      Argh, they didn’t call back but I called them again today and they are coming over on Wednesday to pick it up for good since they were scheduled to pick it up in a couple of weeks so that is once less thing to worry about/
