Gonna Make You Smile!

Hi everybody! I’m a little late getting this post started as we were out picking up our new wheels and then showing them off out at the farm. I’ve got about 20 minutes before SYTYCD is on, so here we go!

Breakfast was a little different this morning! 100_5140

This here is a combination of the following;

  • 2 Weetabix biscuits
  • 1/2 cup USVAB
  • splash mocha almond fudge coffee creamer
  • 1/2 pint raspberries
  • walnut pieces

I warmed the whole lot in the microwave for 1 minutes and then stirred it all up. What a fantastic concoction! 100_5136

No gym for me today because I had to run some errands over the lunch hour in order to be able to pick the Jeep up. Here are the snacks I munched on randomly throughout the day; 100_5144




Lunch was a very green, delicious salad mix! 100_5149

  • red leaf lettuce
  • chicken breast
  • edamame
  • Swiss cheese cubes
  • honey Dijon dressing


While I was out at lunch I stopped by the health food store as I was in the area and picked up a few new goodies to try out; 100_5153



I tried a small piece of the chocolate after dinner and it was fabulous! There was a real distinct espresso flavour that came through. My Dad would LOVE it! The tea will be finding it’s way into my travel mug in the morning and those tasty sounding caramel apple chips are destined for a meeting with my oats first thing! :)

We picked up the jeep before the kids! :) Can you believe I didn’t get a chance to get any picture’s yet? By the time we got home, there wasn’t enough light for a good photo. I promise to post some tomorrow.

Dinner was a quick affair consisting of a toasted WW bun with a Gardenburger tomato basil patty, jalapeno Sabra hummus, pepper jack cheese, ketchup, Dijon and some lettuce. On the side was some pan cooked zucchini from the garden!!! 100_5154

I decided to pick the 3 that I did because the cooler temps had done a number on their growth pattern and I knew they’d rot sooner rather than later. 100_5151

See what I mean? They tasted great, though! There a lots more on the plants that seem to be growing just fine.

As I mentioned, we drove it out to the farm which is about 20 minutes away. DD was able to feed Lacey again and I did film it with the camera, now I my husband just has to figure out how to convert it so I can upload it! I took a picture, though…100_5158

I have just a minute left so I’ll leave you with these most cute kitten photos that were part of an email I received from my sister today. They all put a HUGE smile on my face! I have a feeling they’ll make you smile, too. Enjoy!!! UNE288~1
