Good MID-Morning everyone! Did you miss me yesterday?? I missed you all 🙂
This weekend was PACKED!!
So packed that I didnâ€™t even get a chance to sit down until after 10pm last night. The weekend started with good quality time with my little nieces who spent the night with us. I love them dearly, but man having kids is a FULL TIME job! We had a lot of fun together, I took them to go see the Squekal â€œAlvin and the Chipmunksâ€ together,it was so cute!
The girls had popcorn, and I had about 5 of these beauties, because I NEVER eat these anymore and I forgot how much I LOVE THEM!
Then on Sunday we went to Church and enjoyed the beautiful weather together. I started the day off right with a GM!
Love playing in the front yard DO NOT do this enough!
We also had some Chinese food for lunch 🙂 Their favorite! I at least tried to get something â€œHealthyâ€. The veggie delight with tofu!
They wanted orange chicken.
After the girls left( I was exhausted) I watched some of the Play-off game with the boys (I say boys because we have a full house of Men ever since Thursday due to the roads being closed up to the mountain). The Vikings lost, I cried, then went and taught KB!!!
I did a little bit of everything in my class. Focus Mitts, Lunges with the Medicine Ball, Circuits with pushups in between, Sprints, Abs with partners, Abs aloneâ€¦.
Then it was on to a fun birthday dinner for my two bros, Steve-O, and Jerry. They both have monumental birthdays this week, the big 18 & 21!!!
(iPhone quality pics, forgot my camera!!)
Before the cake I split an Oak Glen salad with my Cuz!
WOW, I am so recreating this salad soon! Mixed greens, Apples, Chicken, Walnuts, Blue Cheese(didnâ€™t eat), tomatoes, and Poppy Seed Dressing on the side. I think when I recreate it, it will have goat cheese and some granola for more crunch! I also managed to have a few bites of Hubbyâ€™s burger (AMAZING) and fries before my meal came out because I WAS STARVED!
I also had a slice of Birthday cake, because it was ICE CREAM CAKE!!! I just ate the ice-cream, no cake and icing for me.
WOW as you can see I was pretty busy!!!
Last night I did get a messege from my boss letting me know that we can not go to work today because the roads are closed and we have no electricity!!! So of course I didnâ€™t set an alarm clock(PRAISE GOD) and woke up around 7:30 and made some yummy oats.
My camera loves the natural lighting!!!!
Banana whipped oats with mixed in brown sugar, flax seed, cinnamon, and 1/2 banana. Topped with Cranberry Sauce, Zoeâ€™s granola, and Cottage Cheese for protein.

â€œBut by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary,I worked harder than any of them,though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.â€ 1 Corinthians 15:10
