So much has been happening at the house this week! Joe is finally laid off, we got the ceilings drywalled, the insulation done, the heat finally turned on, the well & plumbing tested, and we are hanging the drywall on the walls this weekend! We still have a lot to do, but we are finally making some big strides and some significant progress! We enter into our permanent loan on February 1st and will start making our full house payments which is a little scary, but we have been stocking away for that for the last few months now. Shit’s getting real! We made lots of progress on the master bath this week (well, Joe did I should say) he got everything ready for tile and I LOVE how it turned out!
You probably saw this recipe all over the Friday Faves last week, I know I saw it twice and it’s right up my alley so I had to try it and it was AHHHmazing! I ended up cutting up some spinach and adding it in with the chicken broth until it was wilted and then added the rest of the ingredients. I also shredded my chicken and served it over pasta!
I got my MantraBand in the mail and I am in love with it! I can't wait to get another one. I love how they stack a whole bunch of them together. I actually came up with a little stack of my own too!
It's been decided, I am finally, after like 8 years, going to change my hairstyle and this is what I want. I need to work on growing my layers out, but my longest layers are about this length & with the NYM Way to Grow Shampoo I talked about here, this should be achievable in the next year.
Favorite new-found product:
We all have our vices. One of mine was sugar-free Hazelnut creamer that I was putting in my coffee every single day for like the last 6 years. Loaded with artificial crap, and sweetener, I knew it was bad and I knew I needed a healthier replacement, but I was having a hard time giving it up. I finally found something that may not be 100% better, but it’s a big step in the right direction. SO Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer in Hazelnut found in the organic section at the grocery store. It’s liquid creamer rather than a powder, and it’s really tasty. I was worried about it being coconut milk because I don’t like coconut, I don’t like almond milk or any of that (I wish I did), but it’s surprised me and is really good!
Favorite thing I’m looking forward to:
My appointment with our new RE is Tuesday and I’m definitely ready to jump back into treatment. When I first blogged about Dr. Loret de Mola, I was contacted by Southern Illinois University’s social media department and they asked if they could share the post to their Facebook which I of course agreed to. They contacted me again asking about my appointment and we have something really awesome in the works that I’m so honored to be a part of. More to come on that!
Happy Friday Loves!
