Stolen camera & recipe

Last night  I went out with Lydia, a friend that I work with in the NICU. I have been talking a lot about my feelings of my ex, and she told me WE NEED TO GO OUT! We had a blast!

This morning I woke up CRAVING hash browns. Well I didnt have potatos, but I did have sweet potatoes!! So I sliced them, added olive oil, salt, and cinnamon.  With a side of  eggs

Lunch was left over pizza. Then my snack was my good o’ friend- PB and banana on bread

Good o' friend

I made a new recipe by Janetha

it was SO good. Even my son ate it (who is a really picky eater ) My mom wouldnt eat it though.

While cooking my camera got stolen!!!

Have you figured it out yet? haha

 So last night, I plugged in my phone right next to my water on my night stand. Wellllll the condensation on the cup got on the table. Well my phone was sitting in water this morning, and wont turn on!

so sad…Im having to use my OLD phone.

No exercise today except playing soccer with my son twice. This is him today playing goalie for his indoor team- They won!~

Im always so nervous when he play goalie haha

Spinning

Today I got to sleep in till 10 WAHOO! And Im so glad I did because spinning class KILLED my legs!

Before the gym I had two pieces of bread, better than PB and 1/2 banana

After spinning, I had breakfast/lunch. Two eggs, red peppers, and american cheese with a side of clementine and other 1/2 banana

I then was feeling EXTREMELY dehydrated, so I made a green monster

Dinner was chicken, pasta sauce, mushrooms, and red peppers w/ side strawberries

My son and I then had a movie night

(evil trail mix)

  • Question for you:

1.) If you could have a movie night, what movie would you choose?

2.) Have you ever had a green monster, and what did you put in it?
