The Opposite of Snowballing

Hello my little BBQ Balls! Looks like you guys are getting pretty used to my unusual foodie combos…hmm, does that mean I’m free to amp it up a bit? Anyone for a salsa sundae?

Ok, that even makes ME gag! 😉

So, you know how you have those days were it seems like one bad thing happens and then starts a snowball effect until you wish you’d never gotten out of bed?

Well, today the OPPOSITE happened to me!

I recently won a NuNaturals giveaway on Spabettie’s blog and received the package in the mail yesterday. I already knew (or so I thought) what was in the box, so I didn’t think to open it right away. When I saw it on the kitchen table this morning, I decided to take a look while I was waiting for my coffee.

This is what I was expecting to find inside the box

THIS is what was actually inside!

I literally squealed when I saw this!

Cocoa bean extract?!


Once I composed myself, I fixed myself a mug of coffee the size of my face

Hey, some of us need a little extra motivation on Fridays! 😉

Then, since I worked 12 hours on Monday for the holiday, my boss let me leave early! (Granted I ran my BUTT off the time I was there…we were crazy busy!)

When I came home, I threw together a fantastic lunch!

Forty spice hummus and jalapeno cheese spread, yellow zucchini, tomatoes, steamed kale, and sprouts!

It’s a wrap! <- Sorry, couldn’t resist!

And then, I made one of the best impulsive decisions ever!

I remembered one of the local pools just down the road from me…only 5 bucks for admission…sign me up! I met a couple of friends there and we had a great time soaking up the sun and just playing around! A great way to spend the afternoon, especially when I’d normally be stuck at work!

And the best part? It seriously feels like it should be Saturday, but it’s only Friday night!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to venture into the kitch and see what I can whip up with that cocoa extract! 😀

Any big plans for the weekend?
I’m going to “try” to sleep in tomorrow and then I’m off to check out the new permanent campsite my parents found for their camper! Hmm, maybe I’ll even talk my dad into firing something up on the grill!

Who’s got some recipe suggestions for Stevia? I’m so excited to try out all the different varieties!
