Grilled & Marvelous

Hello there, my lovely readers!

How was your weekend? Or better yet, how was your WEEK?



I skipped out on ya yesterday, didn’t I? Well, there’s a very good explanation for that…

It’s called…my sanity!

Yep, I don’t have much left these days so in order to keep hold of what I DO have and not go completely bonkers, sometimes I just have to step away…do a bit of unplugging, relaxing, and maybe a bit of grilling to go along with it!

GrillingBut I’ll get back to THAT in just a minute!

First, a look back at the week that GRILLED ME before I got the chance to reverse the tables… ๐Ÿ˜‰


That’s right! Today I’m linking up with the Diva and my favorite OCD List-Maker for…



I finally tackled the jungle that had become my yard over the last few months. One hour and FIVE MILLION rocks to the legs later, my grass collection of weeds was down to a manageable/safe-from-city-mandated-hate-mail level!



Had an appointment at 3:30 with my ortho to follow-up on my knee.

Arrived at the office at 3:20.

Walked back to the exam room at 4:10.

Doc walked in at 4:14.

I walked out of the office at 4:19?!?!? WTF?!

Luckily, things got better once I got home and checked the mail…

Mail Goodies

Some surprise goodies from my girl Melissa! Homemade Peanut Butter Blondies (omg, I die!), and two freshly made nut butters, oh and some highly coveted but not yet tried COOKIE DOUGH Pop Tarts!!

I also got a visit from the Flatout Fairy…more on that on Thursday!


I’ll be honest, this is where the week started getting rough pretty rough. Like I mentioned last week, my back was killing me, my knee was giving me trouble, and I hadn’t eaten anything in days that hadn’t made me feel like I was going to be sick. SO besides the benedryl that whisked me off to comaland dreamland that night, the only thing that really stood out that day were these finds on Instagram…


Hey, sometimes it’s the little things, right?



Thankfully, after a good NINE SOLID HOURS of sleep, I woke up Thursday morning with a bit of an appetite!

Spaghetti squash + cheddar cheese + mixed berry jam = YUM


I finished up the day with my first SWEATY gym session in what seems like forever and then a little SWEET bedtime snack a few hours later…

Sweat & Ice Cream

Two lactaids and a side of strawberry ice cream topped with the LAST of my PB Popps…orcrumblies, if you will…I may have shed a tear or two


Before leaving to get a GLORIOUS one hour deep tissue massage (which is probably the ONLY reason I’m walking today), I whipped up a quick classic #strangebutgood combo for breakfast!

BBQ PB&J Yolkporn

Spaghetti squash + peanut flour + BBQ seasoning + FROG jam + yolkporn

This combo will NEVER get old!

And now of course, we have finally made it to…


After a LONG day of shopping with the man-friend looking for the perfect heels to wear with my dress for Blend this weekend…


Brown Chicken…Brown Cow!
Say it fast, then it’ll make sense! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We decided the weather was perfect for chicken and shrimp and veggies…OH MY!!

GrillingI got my drank on while manning* the grill which of course included a couple of taste tests to check for poison!

*Not to be confused with actually prepping and igniting said grill…because I still have a certain couple of fears that involve the fondness I have for my eyebrows. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But as marvelous as those bobs de deliciousness were, they didn’t hold a candle to the MOST marvelous part of the weekend…


Seeing the look on my mom’s face when my sister and I surprised her at work for Mother’s Day!

And of course, we came bearing gifts! ๐Ÿ˜€

Mother's Day

Spa gift certificate and an orchid to match!ย 

And for the record, we went halvsies so there was no competing this year! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What was the most MARVELOUS thing from your week?

How did you spend Mother’s Day?
