Soup and Sleep Habits

Last night’s dinner: Tortilla Soup


Letting the chicken broth and two cans of Rotel simmer–

Toppings…cilantro, onion, jalapeno, avocado, lime–

All together…doesn’t it look pretty? And pretty tasty it was!


This morning was little odd for a Monday. The husband and I woke up before our alarm! Mine is set for 5:55, and I usually snooze once or twice. This morning we both woke up around 5:30, and we were ready for action. It’s nice to get up with a burst of energy. We split a grapefruit and I made a yogurt bowl.

  • Fage yogurt
  • strawberries
  • wheat Chex (I always like some crunch in the mix)
  • chia seeds

Then I got dressed and headed out the door promptly at 6:30.

Do you hit the snooze button or pop out of bed? For me it depends on the day. I got right up today, and it felt pretty good. Maybe because I was asleep by 9:30 last night.

Guilty Pleasures

This afternoon I picked up my friend, Katie, and we made the 45 minute drive out to the lake. The purpose of our trip was to see the lake house a family friend is letting us borrow for her bachelorette party at the end of the month. Katie was the maid of honor in my wedding, and I’ll be the matron of honor in her’s. (Katie is on the left)

The lake house was beautiful, and I’m looking forward to a weekend of fun for her.


Nothing was looking too good at home for lunch so I decided to go to Which Wich for a sandwich. Subway is typically my g0-to place for a sandwich, but I was in the mood for something different. Have you ever been to Which Wich? You order your sandwich by checking off the toppings on the bag. I think I put more toppings on my sandwiches than usual¬†because it’s fun to fill out the bag!

I do make a good sandwich.

Later I had a Fiber One bar for snack. These are pretty tasty, especially for only 90 calories!

I didn’t get home from the lake until six. I plopped down on the couch to catch up on reading blogs and my DVR. I have several way too many¬†guilty pleasures when it comes to tv watching. Tonight included a Lifetime movie, Teen Mom 2, and Bethenny Ever After.

Good night.
