Monday, Monday, Monday 10/21/13



Who has two thumbs and is not at work today? This kid! Hallelujah! We were supposed  to go to an Oktoberfest yesterday, and I figured a day of drinking beer would put me behind on meal planning, and cleaning, and so I took today off. Plus, let's be honest for the price I was planning to pay, I was getting my money's worth and didn't think working would be the best idea for all involved the following day. But then plans fell through and we never went to drink copious amounts of beer {#firstworldproblems}. My wallet and waistline thank me; I still took my day off. It was needed. The end.

Friday, Jason and I, decided to go to the Seminole Hard Rock just 'cause. Last time we went, I won over a hundred bucks! This time, we each blew forty dollars, and decided to cut our losses. We're not really gamblers, and maybe its because we never, ever win. We did have some delish buffalo chicken dip, however. Clearly, my priorities are in check.




It's market time for the next six or so months, and this makes me a happy girl! One of the biggest farmers' market in the area is just minutes from my sister's new house, and so a date was made. Plus, I got to play with my "fur-nephews", Reggie, and Rupert a bit before we went.


Even at 10am, the market was beyond crowded! But it usually is, and so why this always surprises me, I'm not really sure. I was able to find some fresh produce, and also my favorite chia chips, and low carb bread from Sami's Bakery. I have no clue if Sami's ships, but I recommend the chia chips, for a snack.


By Saturday night, Jason is usually wiped from studying all day and we decided instead of going out, to stay in and make dinner together. I have to admit that in the 6+ years I have known Jason, we have never cooked a meal together. Sure, we have cooked for one another but that's about it. It was actually sweet, and a fun night in. Plus, we have quite the leftovers.

Sunday, I was lazy while Jason studied, but we left the house to see a movie.


Make it a good week!
