Hi y'all! I just got back from the beach so I'm basically giving a quick hello and to let you know that next week I'll be back with pictures of the happenings in the past couple weeks, food and other miscellaneous things. I haven't weighed because I have no interest in punishing myself. I've had way too much to eat and drink so I'm going to straighten up tomorrow and let my body get back to normal. I'll weigh on Saturday to see what the damage is and then go from there.
I want to wish my friend Nichole a happy, happy birthday today. I hope you and Jordan are having an amazing time in New York!
Yep, it’s my birthday today and next week I will coming back
from the beach so this post and the next will be a bit short. I didn’t weigh because I know better. The food I’ve had over the past few days
wouldn’t be pretty on the scale and I want to enjoy my birthday week. I won’t weigh this weekend either but I’ll
make sure to weigh the 25th to see where I’m at. I am enjoying the lax atmosphere as far as
food goes but I’ll be happy to get back to normal. I just feel better when I eat right. As I’ve mentioned, there are a ton of people
with birthdays in May and both my little cousin Alex and my Grandpa will
celebrating this week so shout out to them!
This week I’m sharing less of a recipe and more of a
Pinterest-inspired idea. I bought the
miniature pre-made graham cracker crusts which I think are less than 150
calories and the Key Lime Pie yogurt for the Key Lime Pie effect but you can
use any kind and just made a mini pie.
The crust broke apart because the yogurt was too heavy but it tasted
good so I didn’t care that it was a bit messy.
I also added some lite Cool Whip to top it off. It’s simple, easy and quite tasty.
I had a great time this weekend with family and
friends. My mom and brother made me a
delicious dinner on Saturday with the best red velvet cake ever and I also
celebrated with friends. I’m so blessed
to have amazing people in my life that care for me!
I’m headed to a birthday lunch with my mom today so it
should be good!
I’ll go ahead and confess that there was no weighing this
week and there probably won’t be until closer to the end of May. I’m just trying to hold on at this
point. I ate terribly this weekend but I’m
trying to pick it back up this week.
This weekend, I will celebrate my birthday and then the next weekend I’m
going to the beach so I don’t have high hopes.
As usual, though, I’m exercising and practicing safe dieting as much as
possible during the week. My birthday is
next Monday and I always eat what I don’t normally get to eat during the year during
my birthday week so I have pretty much planned every terrible calorie I will
consume that week. I’ll bounce back in
June y’all, May is always a bad month for me. I celebrated Jordan’s birthday
this weekend. The pictures were part of
the celebration. I made him some hot pink cupcakes and then I took an idea from
his Pinterest board and made it. It’s
basically a simple frame from Wal-Mart.
You put fabric or paper of any kind where the pictures go and label them
like a weekly calendar and you can use dry erase markers to write on it. He loved it so I was happy. I want to say a quick Happy Birthday to my
friend Nish. Her birthday is Saturday! Also, I want to tell my mother an early HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Love you mom! I'm sure I'll have pictures for next week of all of this weekend's events.
The recipe this week is brought to you by Pinterest. I know you are shocked. I don’t know why I have spent a small fortune
on cookbooks because I pretty much have accepted that my life is one big
Pinterest project at this point. This
recipe is simple. You take the mini
wonton wrappers, put mozzarella and basil in the middle, fold them up and bake
them. I used pepperoni instead of basil
which obviously added calories but the basil I had was bad. I just used the instructions on the wonton
package to bake them. I dipped them in
marinara sauce and they were delicious.
I love this olive flavor from Giada.
If you like olives, you’ll love it and it’s not that high in
calories. This recipe was quick, easy
My friends and I also celebrated Cinco de Mayo this weekend. Our waitress gave us mini sombreros so we had
a lot of fun with those.
Jordan, my mom and I saw Rock of Ages in Birmingham this
weekend from their Broadway Series and LOVE IT.
It was such a fun show with a cute story and awesome music.
I was being very silly last night and drove over to my
parents in my onesie pajamas. They
really don’t expect any different from me.
I was in the mood for a photo shoot and their new dog Grayson decided
she wanted to be good and sweet for a few minutes so the above pictures are a
result of all that.
It was a good weekend overall. It’s always a good weekend when you know the
people closest to you are really the only ones that matter!
Have a great week! I found out this morning a printed journal has accepted 4 of my poems for publication so it definitely made my Monday better!
