under the weather

20 Sep

Happy Monday!

I’m sure many of you have heard that voting is open for Project Food Blog today, so please click here and cast your vote for ChiaSeedMe.  I’d appreciate it so much!!

We had sort of a crazy weekend over here starting on Friday night with my mother-in-law and father-in-law coming into town for a visit.  My brother-in-law and sister-in-law joined us all on Saturday and we spent the day hanging out before heading to the football game on Saturday night.  Jon is in charge of taking pictures in the suites again this year, and I get to tag along and be his assistant:)  It’s a bit draining making small talk with donors all night, but at least we get free food and drinks!

Saturday night I started not feeling so well, so we watched Pride and Prejudice (the new version) in bed and then promptly fell asleep.  I expected to wake up feeling much better, but unfortunately woke up feeling terrible, so we went to church and then spent the rest of the day hanging around the house.  Per the usual, the husband fell asleep to P&P, so Sunday night we had a “re-viewing” so he could see it. I didn’t mind a bit – I absolutely love that movie.  The first time I saw it, I didn’t think it was all that great, but I just couldn’t get enough of it this weekend.  In fact, call me pathetic, but after it was over Sunday night, I crawled into bed with the book, haha.

Anyway, I’m feeling a little bit better today, but still having some stomach issues and a pretty bad headache.  I honestly didn’t feel like eating breakfast this morning, and I certainly didn’t feel like making it, so I went with a simple Ezekiel muffin topped with almond butter.

Lunch was easy as well – leftover Summery Couscous Salad with steamed broccoli.

This afternoon I had my usual two appointments for tutoring plus a new student whom I’ll be meeting with twice a week now.  Nada is from Egypt, but she lived much of her life in Dubai, so I got to hear so much about Dubai today!  Jon and I have read about Dubai several times, and now my travel bug (which never seems to leave my side) is itching to go there.  It has been way too long since I’ve been to that part of the world.

Well, I’m off to try to get some rest and get rid of this stomach issue that has been plaguing me…hope you are all having a great start to your week!

Don’t forget to vote🙂

    I cast my vote for you… and OLIVE! 🙂 Good for you for putting yourself out there. From here on out, I will live vicariously through you. Entering a contest like that would stress me out way too much!

      I don’t know how I didn’t love it before, but now I’m decidedly obsessed with it. Have you ever watched the old version? I’ve never seen it, but I’m tempted to get my hands on a copy now:)
