I have a few recipes in the queue but have been too lazy to type them up.
Grace is having her first play date tomorrow! She’s going to her cousin’s house in the afternoon. Micki is 6 years old and so good with Grace :)
We finally bought paint for upstairs! It took me forever to decide on a color and I’m still not 100% sure, but I think I’m settled enough to go for it. I’m ready to move forward with the room swap.
I’ve been creating decent meals from random scraps in the fridge lately. Chicken hummus wraps and leftover-veggie quinoa have made their way to my table in the past couple of days since I really need to get to the grocery but have wanted to use up all the bits and pieces in the fridge first.
I had a discouraging follow-up appointment with my doctor yesterday. I had been hoping I was in the clear in terms of my blood pressure but that is not the case. More work ahead of me…a very long road.
I recently hosted a Thirty-One party and I’m embarrassed about how long it has taken me to decide what to spend my party rewards on. I’ve poured over the catalog for hours (literally!) trying to figure out what I want or need and in which pattern and font and color and on and on and on. I finally made up my mind tonight so I could close the party and I’m hoping I made good choices!
I usually post main dish or dessert recipes, but I’ve recently made a couple of party treats that are post worthy! Stay tuned for fruity punch (spiked and virgin), sriracha hummus, spinach artichoke dip and smoothie recipes that’ll be sure to please!
I’m battling with some anxiety lately. I’m normally a “push through it and work harder” kind of gal, but I’ve been almost paralyzed a few times lately with overwhelming anxiety. There are a lot of changes ahead of us and those, coupled with my health issues, have drained me of my normal gusto. Walking around with everything weighing on my mind makes even little things like a dirty kitchen floor or overflowing laundry baskets feel unbearable. I have to plan our meals for this week and make a trip to the grocery. We’re overdue for dentist appointments and the windows are filthy. My pantry is all disorganized and my refrigerator shelves are sticky. It makes me want to curl up and take a very long nap. Ugh.
I’ve been a little sporadic with my posts lately, but I have a fun guest post lined up, so stay tuned!
