Club Goin’ Up, on a Wednesday

I bought nail polish and a $5 watch with a face that’s bigger than mine, and Matthew bought a shirt that he dreamed about (totally normal) and got a haircut. You may not recognize us today.

Just a simple night, livin’ it up at TJ Maxx! Small nights like this make life fun. And I don’t know of any reason not to have as much fun as possible in this life.

Sometimes we have 6 loads of laundry piled up that we promise each other we’ll  do when we get home, but usually greater priorities take over- like eating dark chocolate and watching Monk. I haven’t cried about it, yet.

Today I’m thankful for sunshine, even though I’m a little bitter that it’s below 75 degrees. I’m dreaming of summer and sporting my new nail polish like everyone else should be jealous.

Happy Thursday!

What we had for dinner: (think: black beans, quinoa, peppers- yum!)

Leftover Dinner

Pictured: Leftover quinoa, BBQ organic chicken strips (from my crock pot, be real), leftover spinach, sliced grape tomatoes, sliced onions, and organic baked blue corn chips from- all leftover from lunches. All from Trader Joe’s.

I love a dinner that doesn’t make me sweat and lose feeling in my feet in the kitchen. Also, this dinner was faster than the drive-thru.

I’ll be posting a free video with more easy dinner ideas. Comment below if you want to be added.

Get Fizzy With It

“Mama said there’d be days like this, there’d be days like this, my mama said…”

You’re going through your day and then it comes:

Feeling so tired that you just want to nap with the kids.
Feeling so bloated from lunch that you wish unbuttoning was appropriate in corporate life.
Feeling some heartburn-like symptoms from acidic foods.

The list goes on and on.

I keep this jar on my desk of Arbonne Fizz Sticks:

They are plant-based and have amazing herbs like guarana and ginseng, plus whole food B vitamins. They help cut acidity with their strong alkaline levels (learn more about that on my next Facebook Live- just comment below to get added), and help with alertness and focus; two things that are not my strong points after 2:00 p.m. They fizz like a soda, but don’t try to kill you like soda does. So, there’s that.

If I’m feeling especially snazzy, I throw in some frozen strawberries. Boom.
