Heyyy! What’s happening with y’all? I am in a fantastic mood because my mom is home from the hospital! I’ve been designated as her personal nurse and I’m loving my little “job.” She’s doing well which is good, but probably won’t be fully back to normal for another three weeks I think. My mom’s sweet friends have been providing us with delicious dinners. Last night we had a chicken-ritz cracker-poppy seed bake (with green beans and rice) which was delightful and tonight we have baked ziti (with salad, fresh bread (home made I think!!), and chocolate chip cookies) along with chicken pot pie. Here are some pics I’ve snapped! 100_5370

Isn’t that so sweet?🙂 There’s nothing like good friends!

I made my mom a little message for when she got home. “I❤ U” 100_5391

Breakfast today was a bowl of Total Cereal—Blueberry Pomegranate! Mmm! I also had a banana with organic peanut butter. I took a pic of it, but it wasn’t nearly as pretty as yesterday’s. So I’ll show you the one I took yesterday😀 100_5388

Lunch today was absolutely scrumptious! Man oh man was it good! With a lunch this good, you know there’s sweet potato involved. This time it was in fry form! These were cooked perfectly. I do not like my fries crunchy and they were just how I like them. Nice and soft🙂 I also had a DELISH wrap. I took a flat-out wrap and spread it with 1/4 avocado and topped that with broc and provolone. Y’all have got to try this combo. Yum yum! 100_5398

I also had a granny smith apple!

Here’s some dark chocolate that I’ve eaten in the last day or so… 100_5386 100_5404

Oh yes! Yesterday’s raw banana ice cream! Oh goodness this was delicious. Especially topped with organic peanut butter. *Heaven*

Will it replace my froyo? No, they will work as a team😀

SO GOOD. It did change my life. Haha!

After lunch settled, I did Yoga Fitness Plus on exercisetv.tv

I love this site! The videos are free to do (unless you download them to your mp3 player or ipod, etc) and are so good!

Yoga Fitness Plus was FANTASTIC. Very challenging! My glutes were a-burning. And I loved it😀 After this I did K & C 10 minute Strength Routine. Loving this! Although today I did half the chair sits because I was literally shaking!

After sweating it out, I had a bowl of grapes and cherries. Along with some organic peanut butter. This is my favorite peanut butter😀 I know, I know, sorry PB & C. But I just LOVE this stuff. If you see it, get a jar! 100_5415

Cute right? I know you think so Jenny!

I’m currently eating the very last bit of froyo with organic peanut butter. Yummmm!

Mmmm your mom does have super sweet friends, the spread looks delish!
Awww the chocolate message for your mom is so adorable, Jess. You are such a cutie!

That wrap does look yummy—I’ve never seen that combo before. Avocado is good with any type of sandwich/wrap.

Hehe good to know that the banana soft serve and froyo will work as a team😉

That is a very awww/sweet verse indeed!

All your eats look amazing! I’m so jealous – especially of the raw banana ice cream! Wow! I can’t believe it turns out that good. I really want to try to make some now.

I bet you’re a great nurse for your mum. You’re such a sweetie – not doubt you are taking excellent care of her🙂

Does the organic PB taste any different to regular PB? I’ve never seen an organic version!

This post was so happy and made me smile the whole time! I am very glad your mom is doing well and you are being her nurse. I am sure she appreciates you and your kindness so much. When my mom used to get sick, when I lived with my parents, I was always the one who took care of her and “spoiled her.” I feel like moms deserve royal treatment more than anyone because they take care of everyone on a day-to-day basis!

I’m so glad to hear that your mom is doing well. And sounds like you are doing a great job of spoiling her!😉 It’s always nice to have such wonderful friends to rely on to help you out in times like that.

That banana ice cream look perfect! Loving the dollop of PB on top… I think it’s required!🙂
