Friday File: Mother’s Day, Bosch, guilty pleasures, and what I ate

Happy Friday! We’ve made it through the week, and now it’s time for the Friday File. This is my time to run down everything that happened over the week. Honestly, I haven’t made it around to doing a weekly Friday File, but I’m working on it.

This week has been a rebuilding week for me. I’m a bit lost without a rigid running schedule and no goals in sight. I have more time to work on building content for this blog, which a massive focus for me the past month.

Mother’s Day 2019
I spent Mother’s Day celebrating and eating way too much food. I’m not sure why Mother’s Day turned into a feast this year, but there were many celebrations for the mamas this year. Tiny Tot and I did get matching shoes which I loved. That was the best Mother’s Day present EVER!

I made a video about what I eat in the day. Things got messed up because I completely missed lunch, and I was sick at the end of the day. I tried to make it work, and it gives you an idea of a hectic day in my life. I hope to provide a video like this another try in the future on a more “normal” day. I’ll do a full review at a later time.

I’ve been craving veggie burgers lately. Maybe, I’ve just been craving burgers, but I just needed something different. I decided to drop the big bucks on Dr. Praeger’s for the first time, and I enjoyed them. I have a whole freezer filled with these, but I’ve only tried the quinoa black bean burger and the kale burger. I like them both. I highly recommend it.

Have you watched Bosch on Amazon? If you haven’t, it’s time that you put your Amazon Prime membership to use and watch the show. I just finished the latest season of the show, and it doesn’t disappoint. I binged the show last year and couldn’t wait for it to return. Everyone needs to have a little downtime, so why not fill it with Bosch?

This week has been just a normal week with nothing special.  It was nice to get back into a routine.  This morning at the gym and I actually listened to music.  I’m used to running WITHOUT music but I do a workout with music.  I stumbled on this wonderful playlist! Guilty pleasures fueled me through my 5 am.

What has got your attention this week? Maybe I’ll be interested in it next week.

Life doesn’t happen without the internet

Life doesn’t happen without the internet

Hey all!  It’s been a minute without a good blog, right?  There is a reason.  I haven’t had internet…at work.  I know it sounds stupid but I do most of blog planning and writing at work because I try to keep it away from the house.  Sometimes it becomes a little distracting in the house setting so I try not to spend time doing it there.  Plus, by the time I’ve gotten home, I’ve been too tired to work on the blog. Life doesn’t happen very well without the internet.  It was sad a miserable and no fun.  So have… View Post

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I know Mother’s Day is almost over but I wanted to pop in and say hello to all the mother’s out there in the world.  Without them, we wouldn’t be here. I spent the afternoon with my mother. She’s my hero. She’s battled cancer and is still surviving. I sometimes take it for granted that I spend every day with her when most people don’t get that chance. I am thankful for my momma every minute of the day. Two very important moms in my life: my mom and my sister! We had a family meal that included all of… View Post

Failure to finish can’t stop a Mother’s Day

Confession:  I haven’t been feeling too hot since our last hours in China!  When I got on the plane, it wasn’t good.  My stomach hurt so bad.  I didn’t really know what was going on.  I knew that being on a plane for 13 hours and then another flight after that wasn’t the way to end my stomach problems.  But it went away the by the end of the next day.  I thought things were good.  Until Friday morning, it started back again.  I spent most of the day sleeping on Friday when I should have been at work but… View Post

The Catch Up Post: Goals, Races and Mother’s Day

I feel out of touch with the blog because so many things have been going on in life. As you may have read, my grandmother passed and I took it very hard. I didn’t expect to take it that hard, but I did. There were a lot of tears shed over this experience. I saw her decline every day until she passed; I basically watched her die. She’s in a better place now after living a long and amazing life. Her passing added emotional stress and sleep deprivation to my life so my overall well being kind of took a… View Post
