Hey girlies! Thanks for all the kind “get well” comments yesterday ❤ It really means a lot! I am feeling MUCH BETTER today. My throat is still bothering, but it’s better than nothing. YAY!

The pretty bowl of green oatbran in the above picture was my breakfast this morning. Sadly, I didn’t finish it? Why? The peanut butter wasn’t good! Haha. I used some almond butter (which I really enjoyed!!) but also threw some organic naturally more in there. ICK!! It had some sort of weird seed-like things in it. Total turned me against the whole bowl. I somehow managed to eat half, then just couldn’t do it anymore. Two peaches with some organic chai tea were also eaten before lunch was. Yum! 100_5322

My morning was spent relaxing, reading, chatting on the phone, FISHING with my bros (caught a bass on my first try, yesss!) on the little pond in our neighborhood, etc etc. After seeing Heather’s Bean Burger yesterday, it sounded really good, so I decided to try it. My version was def. a stretch! It was still tasty, so I can imagine how brilliant it would be if you followed the recipe to a T and had everything on hand 😳100_5328

I also had some un-pictured pretzels with the laughing cow that was left from what I hadn’t spread onto my burger. Yummy combo!!

After lunch and catching on a little blogging, my family and I went to Target! I got a new phone charger (umm, kinda lost mine…) and an adorable new bowl!! I cannot wait to have some ice cream/cereal or something in it. Dishes make me happy 😀 100_5336 100_5337 Upon arriving home, I did Caitlin and Kath’s 10 minute Strength Routine. This this rocks!

Oh and if you haven’t already noticed, I hard-boiled some eggs today. Mmm!

I just got home from the grocery store like an hour ago with some fabulous eats! Here are some of them:

  • Organic PB
  • Half Baked FROYO
  • Broc
  • Kashi WARM CINNAMON cereal (which I think is delicious, had a few handfuls :D)
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • apples, peaches, bananas, grapes, cherries

My dinner was 1/2 a small Kashi Margherita Pizza. This was so yummy, even though I overcooked it. Whoops! I also had another egg and a blueberry oikos with fresh blueberries. Delicious dinner! 100_5342

I’m looking forward to doing some exercise tomorrow. I’m thinking YOGA. Woo woo!

My nighttime snack, which I am currently enjoying, is a bowl of FROYO with warm cinnamon cereal and not quite a tbsp of organic peanut butter. YUM YUM! 100_5349

MAGGIE’S GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today’s Verse of the Day: Matthew 11:28

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Very fitting for someone who’s been tired and sick.

I would really appreciate it if y’all could keep my mom in your prayers/thoughts because she’s having surgery tomorrow morning. I don’t want to go into details, but everything will be fine! I have been assigned her caregiver for the next week or two. Yay! Because her surgery being moved to tomorrow, we are not going to be able to go to Minnesota for vacation. Which I am sad about because I wanted to see my grandparents/family, but I know this is the right decision. Plus I won’t have to wait two weeks to see the bf! 🙂

Have a GREAT Monday night.

Love you all!

❤ jess

i tried making heather’s bean burger tonight too! i didn’t follow her recipe exactly though. which is why her burger, and yours too, both look like they turned out a lot better than mine did. mine still tasted good, it just didn’t really turn out like a burger…hah. i’ll write about it in my post tomorrow. your dinner looks fabulous, by the way! and i’m glad you’re feeling better. my cold is actually starting to go away, too. finallyyyy.

Sorry to hear the green smoothie didn’t turn out so well, but HOORAY FOR THE BEAN BURGER!!! 😀 Glad you liked it! And I think it’s totally fun to play around with recipes, especially when you don’t have all the ingredients on hand and it’s a must. 😉

I’ll definitely keep your mom in my thoughts and prayers. With my own upcoming surgery, I know how stressful and nervous it can be, even when it’s a simple procedure. Good luck… and spoil her for a while! 🙂

I will be praying for your dear mother, Jess! I know she will be super well because she has you to take care of her.

Gasp, there was icky PB, and it was so bad that it managed to ruin a bowl of oats? That is so unheard of 😉

Target always seem to have the best dishes. I must check them out :D. Half baked froyo? Mmmmm!

So I also did Caitlin’s 10 min strength routine, and i’ve been sore for TWO DAYS!!!!! And usually, I do a 20 or 30 minute strength session every 3 days…but the 10 minutes just did me in, apparently! 🙂

But glad you’re feeling better girl…..laughing cow cheese and pretzels will always be such an amazing combo!

On to the food: That egg looks so random next to your pizza! hahahaha Love it!
On to the PB issue… Have you tried PB2? It’s awesome for morning oats, smoothies, etc….
