Best. Day. Ever.


Today started out really blue. I woke up with a gray cloud over my head. I couldn’t pin point exactly what was bothering me, but I hoped to shake it off quickly. I HATE waking up in a bad mood. (especially for NO reason!) Do you guys have those?

So I made a rockin’ bowl of oats to cheer me:

best ever 012

Whipped Blueberry Oats with Cocoa roasted almonds

In the mix: 1/3 cup GF rolled oats, 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup skim milk, handful of frozen local blueberries (whipped into submission) and topped with 100 calories worth of cocoa roasted almonds

best ever 013

Work was work. We’re preparing for physical inventory on Sunday, so lots of organizing needs to be done. Business was slooooow. So I had plenty of time to organize stock and snack:

best ever 001

Crispy corn tortilla with romaine and Daddy’s Pimento Cheese

Yum. So good! AND the last of the pimento cheese batch :(

On my commute home I was able to decompress on the phone with Alex. A lot of my bad day disappeared. It’s funny how just sharing your worries can help. Even when there’s no advice attached! Little did I know, Parrish was at home. Waiting. With the BEST Christmas present EVER!!!

Hon, you need a vacation. Can I have a sticker?

Michelle said...

Isn't it amazing how on our 'gray days' someone does something awesome that just turns everything around? Our better halves are really good for that, aren't they? I would absolutely LOVE to have one of your stickers. I think that just might turn my frown upside down. :)
