Oh Tuesday…so we meet again.
I don’t know about you guys but Tuesday is kinda sorta my nemesis. For whatever reason, it just seems to be the absolute longest day of the week for me. I know I’ve talked about this before though, so I won’t get into it. Let’s just hope it’s a quick Tuesday!
So yesterday was a good day. Nothing in particular, really…just an overall good day. Work went quickly, I was feeling pretty good, and we got some stuff done in the nursery (I’ll get to that in a second!).
Eats yesterday (and, rather, most days lately) weren’t anything you’ve never seen before. Greek yogurt with lots of fresh berries for breakfast…
About 200 different snacks thrown into the mix between breakfast and lunch (okay, maybe only three, but I was hungry). Lunch was a simple PB&J sandwich which was supposed to go on regular bread like the photo seen below…
Only Jay quickly discovered yesterday morning that our bread was moldy (GROSS) so I had it on a sandwich thin instead. The day continued on with more snacks before heading home to see my guy…and my little furry guy. ;)
I just love how he’s always right there waiting for us when we get home. Granted, we know it’s only because he’s ready to be fed his wet food, but he still makes us feel loved. Little cutie that he is.
For dinner, I had a huge craving for pasta salad. I had bought a container of mini mozzarella balls (or “pearls” as they were called on the package) over the weekend which I’m pretty sure were the driving force of my craving, so I threw a quick one together last night.
To make it, I simply cooked up some pasta (last night’s was Barilla veggie pasta – hence the orange color) and let it cool, then added in some scallions, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, carrots, mozz balls, and Italian dressing. Nice, cool, and refreshing on a warm night, and was enjoyed along with some leftover BBQ chicken grilled pizza.
Shortly after dinner, we had a little extra time for once, so Jay and I decided to work on putting up rain gutter bookshelves in the nursery. I’ve got to say…we are SO thrilled with how they turned out!!
And it was honestly such an easy (and cheap!) project. We bought one rain gutter (about $10), cut it into (4) 2′ sections, bought two corner brackets, and four end caps (maybe $15?). Then Jay took care of the measuring, leveling, and drilling, and within about an hour, we had our bookshelves mounted and ready for books!
I still need to get out to the store because there’s a few books I know I need/want to add to our collection that we’ve gotten started. If there’s any “must-have” recommendations you have for us to add to our collection, I’m all ears!
And hey…the Baby Tooth page was updated this morning, in case you’re interested. ;)
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Let’s hope it goes by nice and quick…but before signing off, I have to give a quick HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to my mama!
Hope you’re having an awesome time out on the beach without me this week. ;) xoxo
