Good morning Monday!
Hope your weekend was pleasant!
As much fun as the weekends are, I enjoy Mondays because they are a fresh start to the new week. Tuesdays on the other hand are not my favourite.
The weekend was filled with gorgeous weather (well on Saturday), fantastic friends, and delicious coffees. Things fun times are made of.
Craving something with a little crunch, I went with toast this morning.
And had this masterpiece to eat.
Ezekiel toast topped with protein frosting and the easiest homemade blueberry jam.
Just mix frozen blueberries in a microwave safe bowl, heat for 1 minute, allow to cool a little before mixing with stevia and a tad of lemon juice.
Who watched the Bachelorette last night?! I was happy with her choice, but felt so bad for her and Arie when they went through that super duper awkward breakup.
I also got my package filled with marvelous coconut butter. There is nothing more divine than this stuff. I highly recommend you pick some up if you see it in the store. Its heavenly, truly! Especially since its the type of butter that doesn’t get stuck to the roof of your mouth when you eat it. If you know what I mean? No, maybe…well this is awkward.
The weather looked like it would be okay, and I wanted to do some light activity, a walk seemed to be fitting. Wouldn’t it be likely that as soon as I stepped out the door it started raining. If you know anything about me, I don’t do rain. Not my thing…so back inside I went.
Before my attempted walk , I had made a snack of yogurt, berries, and raw cashew butter. The strawberry obsession is still going strong.
I came back and caught up on Big Brother, this season hasn’t been too great so far, but I have high hopes considering I usually love that show every year. Dang, I wish Rachel was back. That girl is just hysterical.
To warm my soul for dinner, I ate a serving of broccoli slaw, spaghetti squash, turkey burger, and marinara. I ate it along side 1/2 an avocado.
I have an abundance of spaghetti squash right now, I bought a few and then my parents brought me home a few, so now I’ve got to use them up. At least they last for a while!
I felt the need to represent, so have my pre-ordered shirt all ready. I’m pretty excited about the pink colour! If you didn’t notice I like pink.
And make sure to check out Katie’s marvelous in my Monday posts!
What’s something special about your Monday? Do you like or dislike most Mondays?
***Let’s remember to live life to the fullest today; for being blessed that life has given us another day on this earth, for those others who can’t. I am praying and thinking for all the people effected by the shooting in Colorado. And anywhere or anyone else in the world who are suffering from an awful event or loss in their lives.
