Hey girls! Hope you are all doing great! I am babysitting right now, and the kido’s are sitting here with me.
I am posting as they are eating their dinner, and we are listening to Pandora. They are all smiles! What good kids 🙂
Today as a snack, I had 3 kiwis. Not that we are counting calories here, but just so you guys know, kiwis are mainly protein and fiber! 25 healthy calories per kiwi. Here is a link to the nutrition facts.
And guess what went on my car today?!
This gets me so excited! Every time I look in my rear view mirror now, I see my blog title! What a good feeling 🙂
For lunch, I had a wrap, and a bowl of tomato soup
Yes, I know that looks like a salad, because it was full of lettuce! I actually had to eat some before I rolled it up 😉
If you look closely, the layers go like so…
Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortilla
Thinly Sliced Turkey
Spring Mix tossed in Italian Dressing
Feta Cheese Crumbles
It was so great! I heated up the tortilla with a little bit of olive oil spray in the pan, first. It softened it up really nicely 🙂
Okay, so, as some of you may remember from a couple weeks ago, my Dad is working on our house.
He is taking all of the ‘popcorn’ off the ceilings, re-doing all of the flooring, and painting pretty much everywhere.
I had to share this. I’m sure it would drive some of you nuts (it drove me nuts at first), but believe it or not, I am learning to live with it. At least my room is spotless and dust free! That’s the beauty of being able to close your door! The rest of the house doesn’t get that benefit.
Do you see how much dust there is? It’s drywall dust! Gah! Haha, I cannot wait till it’s gone.
I tease a lot about the dust, but my Dad really is working so hard everyday. I am excited that he and my Mom are going to have such a nice home afterwards. He is a hard worker and most definitely a d0-it-yourself guy! It’s really handy!
Do you girls have a do-it-yourself Dad or Hubby?
While I was working today (for those of you who don’t know, I am a Nanny) I enjoyed a dessert cup of coffee
I decided to treat myself with a little bit of light whipped cream, marshmallows, and cute little sprinkles for a pop of color!
This is just black coffee, with half & half, because that’s what was available to me at the time. If you have a Mocha Mix, or just hot chocolate, you should totally treat yourself to this! It’s so pretty♥ and yummy! If you want to make your own Mocha, put a package of hot cocoa in about 8oz of coffee, with a splash of your favorite milk.
When I got home from my Nanny job, I snacked on this small apple and scoop of peanut butter.
Yum! I think nut butters, and nuts for that matter, are one of the most satisfying things for me.
When I say this, remember that we are all different, and certain things satisfy each of us; it’s okay if nuts don’t satisfy you…
For me, when I have something with nuts, like a nut butter, or especially a LARABAR, my appetite is soo satisfied (&happy).
What satisfies you the best?
After my apple, I was standing in the kitchen talking to my Mom about saving money, when she pulled out the chocolate chips. Haha, writting about this, I can see that it all makes perfect sense. Talking about saving money for your childs college, and reaching for the chocolate chips at the same time.
Hello stresses of having a 20 year old daughter!
I wish I could afford to pay for everything on my own… wouldn’t that be nice? Who knows, maybe a big blessing will come and I will be able to! I’m going to work my tush off & save in the meantime!
Question for all of you: what videos would you like me to do? Do you have specific questions that you would like to SEE me answer? I think some girls want me to do one on bingeing because it is, or has been a big, heavy habit for many of us!
