“Sick” Day

I decided to take the plunge and start this blog today.  I have done research on blogs and started one other very wildly unsuccessful blog when I was getting ready for my mission trip to Spain.  But this time I found Scott Chow and his “How to Start a Blog” blog (it is really called The Blog Starter) and he really made it foolproof, so here I am.

I had to pick up my husband at the airport at 1 this morning so I called in sick to work.  It was nice to spend the morning with him after being apart for two weeks, although he ending up ditching me to go to work…his boss called him and we need the money so….you know how it is.  It has been rainy all week so it was nice to stay in my pjs all day and relish in the fact that I still had 2 more days to my weekend.

I had a little bit of a sweet tooth today and decided to opt for something healthier than my typical chocolate or candy fix. I went to my Pinterest page and found this strawberry oatmeal smoothie that I thought looked good and decided to try it.

I changed up a few of the ingredients.  I didn’t have any milk so I just used some non fat yogurt instead and added water.

I forgot to put the blades in my Ninja and had to try again (after attempting to put the blades in while everything was in the blender already and spilled some of everything on my shirt).

I have to say though, it turned out pretty good and sufficiently satisfied my sweet tooth in a much healthier fashion.

03. the one where no-one’s ready

 

Joey: You hide my clothes, I’m wearing everything you own.
Chandler: Oh my God! That is so not the opposite of taking somebody’s underwear!
Joey: Look at me! I’m Chandler! Could I be wearing any more clothes? Maybe if I wasn’t going commando…
Chandler: [Groans]
Joey: Yeah. Whew, it’s hot with all of this stuff on. I ah, I better not do any, I don’t know, lunges.

I sat down with my smoothie and watched one of my favorite episodes of Friends-The One Where No One’s Ready.  It made #3 on the top 50 Friends episodes on allthisbliss.  My favorite episode (The One With the Embryos) that I would rank at #1 made #6 on their list.  I should make my own list.  I think it would be much more accurate.  BTW Friends is my all time favorite show and I watch the entire season at least 3 times a year.  It is in a constant rotation in my what to watch queue.  And thankfully right now it is on Netflix so I don’t have to worry about wearing out my DVDs.  

I am going to attempt to make this for dinner tonight because my husband loves roasted chicken and I had a whole chicken in the freezer.
