The Mr. got some exciting work news! He is hereby appointed to the position of Project Manager at the construction company he works for. I am so proud of him. He always gives 110% when he is at work and at home. We had a little celebration for him the other night that included card making, champagne, balloons, and some sort-of less than stellar chocolate chip cookies (I was completely livid since I followed the recipe on the bag with full flavor ingredients such as butter and sugar to the max!).
Roasted Broccoli! Oh how much I love you, but it does hurt my stomach if I don’t sit down after eating to let it digest. We’ve had it twice this week. So yummy! I like to put extra virgin olive oil, rosemary, salt, and thyme leaves (just shake what feels right) in a bag and shake it up to coat. I spread it out on the cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees until just a bit of crisps forms on the slightly chopped florets. H loves it this way. Roasting veggies in the oven is the perfect way to get the picky eater to eat up.
I’ve had the worst cold this week. I usually do take a slightly over-the-top amount of pride in my ability to be immune to illness. The fact that I work with sickly
carrier monkeys students each day fuels my fire with this. However, I have had the ickest cold this week. I resorted to Nyquil two nights which left me feeling like I had partied like a college girl the night before. Here is one of my home remedies…
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
Drink up! I also like Tosca Reno’s Oat Tea recipe for fighting colds/sickness. See that recipe here.
I had an epic fail when it comes to yoga time this week. Come to think of it…I’ve had a bit of an epic fail with remaining calm and taking care of myself. I’ve been hyper, negative, easy to anger, and more manic than I care to admit. I know it would definitely help me, but I fail to do it. Definition of stupidity! I’m renewing my commitment to it. It is kind of ridiculous since my goal was actually only a 15 minute session. Here is an article about why do yoga from the truly reputable Mayo Clinic. 🙂
Shoes! I was so thankful that my mother in law decided to share a little gift certificate that she got to the lovely Aerosoles website. I picked out two pairs, and the beauties below are already here and sitting in my closet. They.are.so.comfortable! WOW!
Well, that’s it for my 5 for Friday! Have a happy weekend!
