How did yesterday go for everyone? Mine started out okay and ended really well. I have been having an issue of not feeling rested when my alarm goes off in the morning. I end up getting out of bed later and moving slower. As a result, I get to work late and feel like I am trying to "catch-up" all day. Wednesday night I went to bed earlier than normal. Thursday morning rolled around and I got up 40 minutes earlier. It was so nice to have time to make juice and eat a leisurely breakfast with HM.
I had Quaker Oats Squares with almond milk and the concoction you see above. It had kale, 3 apples, ginger, and lemon. It was awesome. In addition to having time to enjoy breakfast, I could also do my hair and pick out an outfit that didn't look thrown together. I have stopped taking OTD (Outfit of The Day) photos because I get lazy putting together outfits or because my closet room is always a mess.

Tank: Nordstrom's Rack
Belt: Nordstrom's Rack
Purse: Tory Burch
Watch: Michael Kors
Mess: Author's Own
Maybe my subconscious knew good things were in store for me at work today. I went to lunch with HM today and during lunch I was lamenting about how I felt over worked and under paid (a classic song for anybody having a stressful day). When I got back to the office and stopped by my bosses office to have him sign something. To my amazement, he told me to shut the door and then proceeded to tell me that I was getting a raise and a bit of a promotion. Whhhaaa? I didn't see that coming, but I will take it!
My day significantly improved and by the time I got to book club I was feeling great. We always meet at a different restaurant and tonight's meeting was at a vegetarian restaurant. I found myself amazed for the second time that day. The food was actually GOOD.
Not the best picture I know, but this was my Chef's Special chick pea, heirloom tomatoes, and squash fettechini. I don't know what was on the weird looking toast but it was AMAZING!!!
I was still riding on the high of my day when I was driving home because the sunset looked prettier than normal.
|Um yes, I took this while driving....on the freeway. I'm sorry.|
