Good morning, friends!
First and foremost, thank you all so much for your kind words and condolences for my grandma. It was really sweet to read them all, and I can’t tell you how much me and my family appreciate it. She will be missed but never, ever forgotten…even if she did call me potbelly.
So yesterday wound up being one of those days where I actually remembered to take some photos of my eats. Ever since I’ve sort of backed away from documenting every. single. meal. that I eat, it’s not quite as common nature for me to keep snapping away anymore. I’m very glad that I don’t do that anymore, but it is still fun to look back at the goods now and then.
Breakfast yesterday was a toasted honey wheat English muffin topped with lots of peanut butter and banana. I was feeling pretty hungry, so I decided to have the other half of my ‘naner with PB along with the muffin. Super delish.
Around 11:15, I started getting hungry again and I debated on whether or not I wanted to just hold out until noon for lunch or eat something then and there…having food immediately won out.
Just a simple bowl of vanilla Chobani mixed with strawberries and blueberries. Always light, tasty, and delicious.
Turns out, my snack held me over for a while, and I didn’t wind up having my lunch until closer to 2pm. But by then, I was more than ready to dig in!
I prepped a beast of a salad the night before, filled with as many veggies as I could find in the fridge – lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onions, carrots, broccoli, harvard beets, pickles, feta cheese, a couple croutons, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
That thing was massive and absolutely delicious…unfortunately, it did not agree with my belly at all. By the time I was finishing my last bites, I already started experiencing a sharp, totally uncomfortable pain in my upper abdomen. Combine that with Baby Tooth pressing right up there and holy cow, was I uncomfortable. Apparently that was too many veggies at once? Who knows…
The pain lasted pretty much all evening, so I tried laying on the couch to stretch out as much as possible. It actually worked out well because it gave me time to write out a bunch of thank you cards from our shower while Jay worked outside with a couple of the guys…
Remember how we tore down our old deck last year? Well, we’re (aka, not me) putting up a brand new one!
The three of them got a bunch accomplished, and I am SO excited to finally have our back deck back soon. Especially since our back door was pretty much useless after we took down the old one. Later this summer? Me…Jay…Baby Tooth…and a nice glass of wine out on that back deck.
Most likely with Cody watching from inside.
Since the guys came over to offer their help for the whole evening, Jay and I ordered some pizza for them for dinner. And since I was feeling a bit lazy and didn’t feel like making anything else for myself, I decided to dig into their stash and had a couple slices.
It tasted great, despite the fact that I was still uncomfortable.
The rest of the evening consisted of some more thank you cards, calling a couple of references for a daycare (which went GREAT), eating a fruit bar (obsessed with them lately), and watching The Voice with my guys on the couch before finally heading to bed. It was a long day, but a good day, indeed.
FYI: The Baby Tooth page was updated this morning! We’re getting so close!
Have a great day, everyone!
