We Don’t Need to Divorce Afterall

So, now I can talk about this. Yesterday, I got home from work, and asked my dear husband how his day was.

Hubski: “It wasn’t too bad. Then I went to the gym. It turned back.”

Me: “What’s wrong? Didja pull something?”

Hubski: “No…(sad face) I lost my wedding band.”

Me: “Shut up no you didn’t”

Huski: Shows me his ringless hand.

Me: tear….

Husband lost his wedding band in the month of our year anniversary. We were both so upset, him more than I even. I just felt so bad for him. He searched the gym, his gym bag, and retraced his steps. We were both distraught.

Then, today before work he decided to try one more look at the gym. He even went to the parking lot to look. Off on the grassy area by where he parked….


I literally got a text saying this: “I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I couldn’t believe it! I even joked saying that we didn’t have to get a divorce afterall! I don’t think he found that too funny, heh heh. Oh I’m so glad he found it. How lucky is that?

I wasn’t going to say anything on here for a while unless he found it, because, well, that just makes for a sad story. Now I can tell you guys the story with the happy ending. All is well 😀

On to last night’s dinna 🙂

It was pretty much a hodge podge dinner. I planned on making turkey burgers, and since Shane’s convinced he hates turkey burger, I had to come up with something else for him. So here are all the foods I made last night:

turkey burger (for me)

(Pre-grilled) I seasoned it with cumin, and salt and pepper, and then added chopped bell pepper and onion.

I also made Annie’s mac n cheese (for Shane, but I nibbled), Campbell’s chunky chowder (for Shane), sweet potato fries, and some Great Harvest Bread.

My plate:


Nom to the nom nom. We feasted hard core.

I was in a food coma after this meal. Luckily one of my besties called, so she gave me an excuse to just lay on the couch and veg while catching up. A glass of wine may or may not have been consumed 😉

Well I hope everyone has an awesome day. It’s Friday!! Whoop it up 🙂 Or….just enjoy, haha.

B-e-a-utiful Day!

It’s such a beautiful day outside today! I’m about to go take Niko for a walkie:D

Body pump kicked my boo-tay this morning! I haven’t gone in probably a month, as I’ve just been lifting weights on my own, and I forgot how strenuous endurance strength-training is every once in a while 🙂 I needed it, because there was an abs session at the end, and I’ve been slacking on my abs. It’s pretty much an awesome hour-long weight lifting class that focuses on every muscle in the body. It rocked my socks off.

When I got home from class, I made some eggs in a hole toast to refuel.

I used hemp bread, and had a very delicious breakfast.

I kind a had to scarf it down, because I was meeting a friend at the Farmer’s Market soon.

It was her first time there, and she was amazed at how huge it was. I took some pictures of some cool veggies and pretty sunflowers while I was there.

and bought a HUGE squash.

And sipped on some Honest Tea while we browsed.

Yum, yum!

We had to split afterward, and I headed to the grocery stores. Ugh. People were so annoying today, and I totally went over my $100 budget. Oopsie. Well, at least I know I’ll use the ingredients, thanks to my new meal planning system (I’ll have to show you all the system soon!)

I got a crap ton of groceries, but here are a few things I’m extra-excited about that I bought:

Granola, Bees Knees, Honest Tea, Baybel cheese

Raw almonds to make almond butter

Peanut Butter filled pretzels from Naturally Yours

When I got home and put the groceries away, it was time for lunch. Since the hubski was busy working on his car, I made some burgers on the GF grill. I used cow burger for Shane’s, and turkey burger for mine. I seasoned them each with a mix of jalapeno pepper, cumin, pepper flakes, and garlic powder.

Then placed a bella mushroom on top (and some baybel cheese under the shroomie) and grilled some more, and then topped it with ketchup and mustard.

Ahhh this burger was SO good. I was very proud of my grill masta skillz, haha.

Not sure what we’re doing tonight yet. I’ve mentioned seeing the Time Traveler’s Wife to Shane a couple times, but he didn’t seem to in to it and hasn’t mentioned it since, so we’ll see 🙂

Question: What’s your favorite way to make something out of a butternut squash?
