Hello hello, before I say anything else today I want to thank ALL of you wonderful friends for your sweet and kind words last night/today. Each and every one of your comments were so heart felt and they brought tears to my eyes. I don’t know that ya’ll know how much you really affected me, in such a positive way. This blog world is incredible, even though most of you live far away and we’ve never met — it feels as though we may as well be great friends and the empathy I felt from you was so real. So thanks again friends, ya’ll mean the world to me and just know that ya’ll have made me feel so much better through it all 🙂
So this lady has been busy with work and car related stuff all morning. Looks like the car is most likely totaled, however I won’t know for sure until Monday. For now, I’ve got to go to the garage and clean it all out and pick up a rental car for the weekend. I have vowed to myself that I will not be scared to drive again, and today I’m going to tackle that! My sweet Dad is going to help me out doing this all this afternoon – thanks Pops 🙂 Other than that, just some minor back pain that I have been icing and taking advil for… keeping an eye on the situation and will head to the doctors if it doesn’t begin to improve here shortly (better safe than sorry!)
I keep trying to tell Lucy Dog that Mommy can’t play quite yet until she feels better… but she is really pushing it 😉
Okay peeps, so let’s bring up the mood around here, why don’t we?! How about starting with a funny dinner story from last night 😉 Only me.
So we decided to still head over to Ukrops for our buy 1 get 1 free salads and a few other things we needed… and along with the salads, soup, oats, paper towels, etc. that we picked up I randomly buy a pork butt?! Haha who buys a pork butt after they total their car and almost get seriously injured????? Hey, to my defense, they looked really good and were a great price haha. I hear a “you know you’re a foodie when” comment coming on haha!!
So pork butt and I are going to have a date on Sunday, I’m making my amazing boyfriend some slow cooker pulled pork that I hope will turn out great! I must repay him for his amazing-ness somehow friends 😉
We also picked up some post-crash necessities (hope I never have to say that one again!)
This gelato was too-die-for (probably not the best saying for me right now?). Tiramisu flavor with the most incredible real coffee flavor and the texture was so light and airy – holy yum. And on sale for $1.99 — hey hey Richmond peeps — it was a steal!
The Man was exhausted from the evening and took a nappy all night in front of the fire with me not leaving his side. It felt so amazing to be home with him, and I had never been so happy for such a simple thing 🙂
I ended up getting a decent night sleep last night considering, which I thought was going to be full of tossing and turning with thoughts of the crash however it was full of weird and funny dreams haha?! For that I am thankful 🙂
This morning I woke up and decided that Ice Cream Oats were in order! You know what, if life is gonna give me lemons then I’m gonna squeeze ’em the best way I know how haha! 😉
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana, smashed
- chia seeds
- 1 tsp PBLoco cinnamon raisin peanut butter
- spoonfull Tiramisu gelato!
Decadant and delicious, why haven’t I done this before?!
Let’s just truck right into lunch eats why don’t we? I had previously frozen some of this guy a while back and now was a perfect time to take advantage of an easy, reheatable home cooked meal!
Still deelish! 🙂
Alright, gotta get some things done around here and shower up to go wish my car farewell. I’m a lil’ nervous to see the aftermath of it all, but I think with my Dad there I am going to do just fine 🙂 I’ll leave you wonderful friends with this…..
Have a fabulous Thursday!
