Happy Thursday! I just love being a day closer to the weekend, especially since I can spend 80% of it with the hubs! It’s an even happier Thursday because I am spending today with my mom. On our agenda? Shopping for Christmas decor at Garden Ridge (everything is half off!), foraging through her already-owned decorations for things that Steve & I can have, dinner with Daddy and… drumroll, please…. a night with the Rockettes! They have a traveling show and my parents gave me tickets for my birthday back in August. As a dancer, I have looked forward to tonight for a very, very long time!
I have already done a small amount of decorating with things I found at the Dollar Tree:
Anyhoo, if seeing the difference in hubby’s pasta dinner and my pasta dinner a few nights ago wasn’t enough to show our difference in eating styles, last night’s meal is another indicator. I desperately need to purge the leftovers from the fridge, so he ate them straight up – turkey (which he later drenched in teriyaki sauce) and mashed potatoes. I’m lucky that he at least likes 1 veggie – broccoli – or I’d never get him to eat one! I fashioned a turkey-cranberry wrap with Hungry Girl’s Kickin Cranberry Sauce, deli turkey and lettuce. That recipe is super easy and so yummy! It got raves at the dinner table.
Of course, I rounded it out with a huge side of carrots!
Workouts the past few days have been insane and my legs were begging for a break this morning, so I am giving them a day off! I cooked up some protein pancakes with apples and unsweetened applesauce and fueled up for a great day!
I’m taking the camera with me (I usually forget!) so I hope to capture my “happy Thursday!” Toodles!
