You want to know what’s just suuuuper awesome?
Spending your lunch hour outside, under a tree, on a blanket, in sunny 70 degree weather. Seriously…it doesn’t get much better than that.
I left the house yesterday morning knowing full well that I wanted to be able to get outside on my lunch hour, so I grabbed a book for some reading material and spent my time both reading and eating on our gorgeous Monday we had here.
On the menu for lunch? A big, delicious salad.
On Sunday, I pre-prepped two salad bases with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, baby carrots, broccoli, and onions. Then yesterday morning (and today, actually) I topped them off with some fresh avocado, grilled chicken (we grilled up extra on Sunday), dried cranberries, and feta cheese. Light, refreshing, and deeeeee-licious on a sunny afternoon.
Once my lunch hour was over, I headed back in to work and immediately needed something sweet. Lately, it seems like one of my biggest cravings is fruity sweets, so when I saw a co-worker of mine had some Starbursts hanging out in her office, I totally snagged some. AND, imagine my delight when I opened up the package to find my two favorite flavors.
It was meant to be. 🙂
Last night was the official first co-ed softball game of the season, so now that both of Jay’s teams are in full swing, that means one thing: dinners around here are going to start to get a little boring.
But you know, I’m cool with that. I really haven’t been in the mood to be spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen anyways, and I can easily be satisfied by something as simple as a sandwich…so that’s exactly what I did last night.
I made myself THE most delicious turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread with a little mayo, a little honey mustard, provolone cheese, lettuce, and tomato. I know they say you should stay away from lunch meat while you’re pregnant, but after asking two of my doctors and both of them giving me the go-ahead, I’m totally cool with it. I’m still picky about what kinds I eat though, and right now I’m eating the Applegate roasted turkey (nitrite and antibiotic free) which is pretty darn delicious.
After scarfing down my sandwich, I headed out to the softball game, and I’ll admit…as happy as I am to be there cheering my team on, it reeeeally just isn’t the same watching from the bleachers. I just want to be out there playing! Soon enough though, I know…I’ll just have to remain on the DL for this season. 😉
**FYI: The Baby Tooth page was updated this morning!
