How are you doing today? I am doing pretty fab if i don't say so myself!
being positive! Think, act, believe.
Yesterday was a pretty great day! I didn't have to sub so I had a pretty nice 'Sarah' Day!
I got up early (okay..so it was 8:30, but on a day off that's early!) made hot tea
and a little breakfast and perused blogs all morning!
It was grand!
Lipton's green tea & scrambled eggs with spinach/jalapenos with
one slice (40 cals) of provolone cheese and wisp of ketchup
Then a bit of cleaning and putting away clothing, aka everything i tried on for the weekend and
then decided not to wear that was strewn all over my room. All hung up & put away.
Then a little running around town going to the grocery store, walgreens, and the bank.
I am SUCH a bum.
Please look at what i wore in public.
VS yoga pants & MSU sweatshirt-- outift completed with
Old Navy flip flops. (fashion blogger i am NOT)
I am a hot mess!
Then after I got home girlfriend made a FABULOUS lunch!
right off the top of my head, zero planning...proud. DUH.
Spinach & Chicken Quesadillas
This was literally SOOOO easy peasy.--
I took grilled chicken (i have pre grilled chicken in bag from the store-freezer section- or grill your own) put in on a tortilla added seracha for heat right on top of chicken
Then sauteed a handful of spinach in a pan (i added garlic salt/cumin/splash of olive oil to spinach while sauteed )
Then added spinach on top of the chicken.
Put a piece of the provolone (40 cals a slice-- Sargento Brand) on top of the it all and then put the other tortilla on top.
Crisped up each side if pan! (i used same pan from spinach, just wiped quickly with a paper towel!)
Lastly added a dollup of Greek yogurt (Plain tastes JUST LIKE sour cream &WAY less cals)
ta-da! Took less than 15 minutes!
did i just share a recipe? who am i??
After lunch I was a bum and DID NOT want to drive to the gym so
i tried this workout i found, and WOAH i am feeling the burn! *I added a 15 second water/breather after the jump rope and a 1 minute jog in place/ water break at the end before starting it over. I did it 2x like the workout said. It was just a little over 20 min and I was SWEATIN' *
Did some intense abs workout and then settled down for the Bachelor
& a little DIY project
I will share the project this week!!
Great day overall! I am ready to be back subbing though
and workin' for that money honey!
Tonight there is an event for my business organization i was in during college. It is rush week
which means trying to get new members blah blah. anywhoos it's TRIVIA and i am stoked.
fingers crossed my trivia skills will be payin those bills....i mean impressing my friends.
ya’ll! I’m Katie Garrett of sweet pea’s blog. I write about my life as
an Air Force wife, momma to two fur babies, and knitting pretty things. I
love to create and bless other people by them. sweet pea’s is my little
place of the interweb where I can share my life and loves with others.
almost always working on some knitted project. Whether it’s my newest
favorite right now: bow ear warmers, or my more perfected patterns of
fingerless mitts and sweet little baby booties, I love having something
that is a work-in-progress. And I always have a scarf I’m trying to
finish. Besides knitting, my hubs & I love to ski in Utah. It’s such
a great mini getaway for us to get out of the desert and into a winter
wonderland. I’m in my student teaching semester of college for the
sweetest first grade class ever and love every second of it. I can’t
wait to have my own classroom of my own! I’m always go-go-go but love to
take time out of my day to walk our dogs around Nellis Air Force Base,
lounge on the couch with my love, or catch up on blogging a little.
Austen & I.
and I have known each other since high school. She’s pretty dang cute,
isn’t she? Some of my favorite memories with her are rushing back to my
locker after lunch and between classes to get mints and giggling about
boys. I moved to Texas right before our senior year, and during our
sophomore year in college, she completely surprised me by coming to
Texas for New Years. I had no idea it was her until she got off the
plane (my sister lied and told me someone else was coming in town…Sarah
was a much better surprise!).
See? We were pretty excited.
am so grateful that Sarah offered to have me guest post on her blog
today! I’d love for all ya’ll to stop by sweet pea’s and follow if you’d
like, and leave a comment introducing yourself. I love meeting new
people, even in the not-so-little blogging world
