Today has been a totally ordinary day. Oh, except for the fact that there are several feet of snow in the forcast in, I don’t know, the next couple of hours. No big deal! That’s normal, right? I guess that’s what I get for packing up almost 2 years ago (what? how long ago? when? who am I?) and moving to Colorado!
Let’s time out for just a moment on the normal blogging thing: I moved to Colorado 2 years ago. Well, Nate and I did that together, it’s not as though I picked up and moved and he followed later 🙂 There are a lot of people we knew who talked about moving out here at the same time, but out of several hundred people, we were the only ones who followed through! I’m not sure if that makes us crazy or really awesome, but I’d like to think it’s the latter 😉
Anyway, sorry for the aside. I just can’t believe it’s been 2 years! Lunch today was fabulous and perfect for a rainy potentially snowy day (did I mention I am wearing flip-flops and don’t have a change of shoes…?) I made Bob’s Red Mill Vegi Soup last night:
This soup mix has green split peas, yellow split peas, barley, lentils and vegetable pasta, but no spices. I mixed mine with chicken broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Seriously, this is an AMAZING soup mix!
I paired it with a sandwich with half a slice of wheat bread, a slice of pepperjack, some bbq sauce, and the last of some steak strips:
‘Twas a fabulous lunch! I then found out that my doctor’s appointment (don’t worry, just a routine girly check-up) was at 3 and not 3:30, so I freaked out for about 3 minutes and then got it together. Nate kept teasing me with text messages all afternoon about how he had a surprise for me! Oh my, another puppy? No, he wouldn’t do that 🙂 He met me outside of work while I was leaving and gave me this:
Have I mentioned that I have the best husband in the world? I’m pretty sure I have, but if not, there you go! I’ve been wanting this book for months now, and on a whim he bought it for me 🙂 As I drove away I told him to not be surprised if he came home to me reading it obsessively…
Tonight we’ll be celebrating our friend Robbie’s birthday! I made a red earth cake and I can’t wait to share it with y’all tomorrow! We were going to grill out but apparently it’s a little chilly to do so…I mean really though, who doesn’t grill out in the snow? What? You mean that’s not normal? Oh well… 🙂
This is sort of random, but I want to know: what are 5 of your top life goals? Have you reached them yet? They don’t have to be in any particular order, just things that you’d like to share 🙂 Here are mine:
- Backpack through Europe
- Have babies (4, right Nate?! :))
- Write a book
- Become a REAL professional photographer
- Be completely and totally happy with myself!
