The Usual

Ah, a normal Saturday.  So nice after last weeks where I was confined to the couch! (Oh yes and I broke down sobbing hysterically until my husband took me to Jason's Deli)  That was fun :)  But let me back up.  Last night was fun!  We had dinner with our friends Lane & Lizzie at Brooklyn's Pizza and then saw Leap Year.  It was a little slow at times...Ryan fell asleep.  Shocker! :()  But I thought it was cute!

Anyways, I got up this morning and starting cleaning the house.  Some Saturdays I actually feel like and enjoy cleaning; other times I just get through it- or better yet, blow it off!  Today I felt like cleaning and I pretty much did it by myself while Ryan cleared some brush from the side of the house and backyard that someone from the city said we needed to move.  Done.  Now get off our backs. :>  I fueled up first with a well-rounded breakfast though:

Carbs, Protein, and Fat, right?

 Ryan and I both brought home leftovers.  I cleaned the kitchen and then finished breakfast with some Life cereal!  Ah, that stuff is so good.  I don't usually buy that kind but it gets mushy in milk which is what I've needed with my teeth situation.

I got to work after that c.l.e.a.n.i.n.g!   Here's some pretty pictures of my clean house:

I paused for a yogurt + fruit snack!

yo-plus berry yogurt, 1/2 sliced banana, 1/2 T. ground flax

Around 1:00 I was ready for lunch.  All that cleaning helped me work up an appetite!  I started with soup.  Did you know eating soup before a meal decreases the number of calories you're likely to eat afterwards?  Uh, and plus soup is easy to eat when you can't chew :) 

That doesn't look very full!  And apparently tomato soup is liquid wisdom as well. :--)

I admired my pretty yellow flowers while I was cooking.  Look how great they still look!

The rest of lunch was chicken nuggets + sweet potato fries!!!  I was so happy to find these fries in the freezer.  My chicken nuggets were the Morningstar brand.  So yeah, not "real" chicken but I think they taste great!  I'm definitely going to buy these again.

So it's been a good day!  I need to go shower now and get ready for a Fields Family gathering we're having tonight at Logan's Roadhouse.  I wanted to get a pedicure/manicure but I think I ran out of time.  Maybe tomrorrow!  I'll leave you with a pic of my lazy shorkie- what can he possibly do to get tired!?  :--)
