Hi guys! Hope everyone has been having a great humpday!
I have been rather busy and have a lot of busyness up ahead of me! Basically, we have a ton of family coming into town because one of my cousins, Shawn, is getting married this weekend. I think I mentioned it a while back…I can’t believe the weekend is almost here! I am very excited because I absolutely love weddings!
My sister and I will be helping out with a lot of the wedding/festivities that have been planned. There are many get-togethers and fun things up ahead, so it will hopefully be a good kind of busy!
Earlier today, my sister and I headed out to go look for a wedding outfit! Gotta find some excuse to go shopping and spend some money, right??
I actually found two dresses that I loved and they were both total bargains so I ended up buying both of them and am planning to wear the other one for another special occasion that is coming up…(more on that to come)
Here is the dress that I will be wearing to the wedding:
I thought it was the perfect little summer dress and I can’t wait to wear it! I have some sleek, black heels to go with it.
And here is dress #2:
Yet another fun summer dress. :) But you guys will never guess where I got these dresses at…
WALMART!!! :D Crazy right? Walmart actually carries some very cute stuff. I got each dress for a cool 10 buckaroos. What a steal!!!
Moving on to some eats, I picked up a Kashi meal that I had not tried before and a while ago and finally got around to eating it a few nights ago:
This was GREAT! I really enjoyed it…especially after smearing a laughing cow all up in there. Mmmmm. This meal has a hint of lime and cumin and there go together so wonderfully. I would happily eat this again!
Plain Oikos mixed and topped with PB2, 1/2 sliced banana, and Quaker Oatmeal Squares:
Close up of the goodness:
I just ordered a 4 pack of PB2. I love it SO MUCH! I really don’t use it much for an actual nut butter substitute…but I just love mixing it into some greek yogurt. I will also be experimenting with adding it to recipes and whatnot for a hint of peanut buttery flavor!
Some lovely juice:
1 beet, 1 apple, 3 carrots, a few cherries (take seeds out first…I learned this the hard way)
the pretty elixir:
Last night I baked up some tofu for din-din:
This was the best I have ever made!! I finally nailed to cooking time…I like mine nice and chewy and not too soft, but I usually always end up under cooking them. This time I cooked them at 425* for 50 minutes. Perfecto! As far as the flavor mixture, I mostly don’t measure anything but here are approximate measurements:
- soy sauce (approximately 1 tbsp)
- agave nectar (2 tablespoons)
- sesame oil (2 tablespoons)
- your choice of seasonings.. I used garlic powder, minced garlic, minced onion, parsley, and basil.
I also steamed some broc and cauli, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and a squeezed lemon
Oh, I almost forgot…my post-surgery appointment on Monday went great! My doctor numbed my nose and stuck a scope up in it and said that everything looks perfect! I can totally tell a difference now, even though I am still healing…but definitely feel SO much better already!! And then I received the best news of the day…
I got the a-okay to start running again!!!
And you better believe that is exactly what I am off to do right now! I know I will have to take things slow and build back up, but my body has seriously missed it so much and I can’t wait to jump right back into it!
Hope you have a lovely day girls!
