Friday Round Up

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! I don't know if "Happy" is the right word to use for such a superstitious day. Saturday is Valentine's Day, got any plans? We're going out to dinner at our favorite pizza spot EVO in Park Circle. I think it's going to start being a yearly tradition since we went there last year for V Day as well. I'm also super excited because we haven't been out to dinner in awhile. Not since we've started this new concept called "Saving". I saw my friend Cait's precious little baby boy Rowan this week. Definitely giving me baby fever!  


~I picked up these hydrangeas to perk me up after getting some bad news this week. 
We have not one, but two co workers quitting and another co worker will be out for 6 weeks or so for back surgery. What does all this mean? It means we are majorly short staffed and there's even a day or two when I'm working by myself. Obviously that isn't possible, you have to another nurse there at all times but it is scary to think how tough it's going to be for awhile. We're all kind of freaking out. Fingers crossed upper management steps on it and hires some new people!



~Food Babe's book came out this week, The Food Babe Way, and I totally forgot I ordered it! Probably because that was back on Black Friday. I was kind of hesitant to start reading the book. Not because I don't love Food Babe, I do, but sometimes I think she beats a dead horse. We all know processed food is bad so does she really need to investigate every.single.company just to prove they use fake chemicals? It does get old but I decided to start her book because I do like her a lot and I think her educating everyone on our food system is wonderful. So far the book is really good. It's pretty much what I knew it was going to be about but it's kind of a refresher too. I've been slack and have been eating Chick Fil A again and she quickly reminded me all the crap that's in their food. 



~I've been making a smoothie every morning for breakfast and it really starts my day off feeling good. I've been making this exact smoothie for over a year now but don't think I've ever shared it. 

There's no measuring, I just add a handful of kale, a handful of frozen berries, banana, pour in my almond milk and chia seeds and blend until everything is pureed. A lot of people can't stand kale so the banana is there to hide the flavor. I have no problem with kale so I add the banana for some extra potassium. 



~I never thought I'd be saying this but Theo and I have a new show we watch together, The Bachelor!! I started watching it because Theo was gone on Monday nights for he and Pixie's agility class. The class is now over so he actually sat down and watched it with me. He said he used to watch it in college and he and the guys would pick a girl they wanted the bachelor to choose, more like they would want to bang. We were laughing at the show, everything was going great, I was so happy he was finally watching a reality show with me, until they showed "next on.." and Jade said she had some nude pictures taken for Playboy. I saw Theo's eyes go wide and before I knew it he was on a mission to find those pictures. Just to see what they look like, yah right I'm not stupid. He found the pictures, which are disgusting by the way, but then he found a video of her rolling around on a bed!! I was livid and said "get rid of those now! and never look at them again!" The one time we can watch a show together and he finds nude pictures of one of the girls. I'm sure I've got him hooked now!


Enjoy your weekend!

  4. I watch The Bachelor each week with a couple girlfriends and Adam always makes fun of us. I was over one of their houses this week to watch and I started getting texts from Adam about how crazy Kelsey was. He was watching it alone on his own! The boy is hooked. Happy Weekend!

  6. Being short staffed sucks! I hope you get some extra hands on staff soon. I love simple and easy smoothie recipes like that. I have never added Kale to a salad but love spinach!

  8. Pizza sounds so good! Any smoothie with berries and kale is a solid choice that can do no wrong in my book. That is pretty funny about y'all watching the Bachelor together. That is something that Jake would do, so you gave me a good laugh this morning. By the way, I nominated you for the Liebster Award. I wanted to show some love to a blog I enjoy reading! I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Haha my husband insisted on googling Jade after last weeks episode, too!! I wonder what Chris is going to think about it?! The previews showed him crying but who knows, all the editing and crap it's probably about something totally different!

  14. I'm hooked on the Bachelor/Bachelorette and have been for years. I can't help but get sucked into the reality TV drama. That's so funny about your husband.....I catch mine watching every now and then. I think he actually likes it but won't admit it.
