Aidan’s last day of school was yesterday and it was our last “Date Day”. The boys will be going to spend a week with Mimi and Papa over the summer so we WILL get to have another date or two over the summer, but besides that…this was it until Aidan starts K in the fall. Then we will have tons of them! It’s so crazy to me that we are finally moving into the next phase of our lives. I was changing out some of the pictures in our frames last night and found one of Luke at age 5. Then I put Aidan’s 5 year picture next to it and thought….Wow, where has the time gone? Cliché, I know, but it’s the truth. Seems like yesterday……It’s so bitter sweet. I am happy, relieved, hopeful, excited about the future. Being able to finally do some of the things I have only dreamt about being able to do over the past 10 years, having sense of freedom. But at the same time, I am sad that my baby boys are growing up so fast. It makes me want to savor every moment and sad that life is so busy and hectic that I can’t. I just pray I am not missing valuable opportunities to teach them, love them and nurture them. I pray that I am not making mistakes I will regret later. I pray that they will grow up knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that I love them more than anything and that our house and our family is their sanctuary in this messed up world.
Ready for our date!

“This fragrance brings together iconic yet complementary scents to create the perfect accessory. Exquisitely alluring notes of magnolia and freesia blend with delicate violet flowers to cast a brilliant sparkle that commands attention. The headiness of tuberose and the peppery hint within peony meld together for a sensational presence at the fragrance’s heart. The finishing glow of ambergris drapes you in a sexy aura of gorgeous, glimmering gold.” – description of the scent on Sephora.
Who writes these? I love it!
Then it was time for our movie.
I wish I was like everyone else and could say this movie was the best movie ever made, but for me it was not. Let me just say first that I really like super hero movies. I love the witty humor. I love the heroism. And of course there is usually a love story. My favorite super hero is Iron Man. Robert Downy Jr. is just adorable. I loved the first part of this movie, but by hour 2, I was bored. All I could think about was how much longer would this be going on and what I wanted to eat for lunch. It was so freaking loud and the violence was just way over the top for me. I was getting a headache. I know….what did I expect? I just have a short attention span and anything longer than two hours is just too much. Over all it was a good movie, just (IMO) did not live up to the hype. Definitely a guy movie. My favorite part was when Hulk smashed Loki like a rag doll. I couldn’t stop laughing. There have been a few people I wish I could have done that to. KIDDING!!! not really.
So all I could think about during the last part of the movie was this salad. Actually, not this salad but THIS salad. The Chick-Fil-A in our mall didn’t have it so I settled on the regular one. I should have ordered a fruit cup and put it on top. Definitely next time!
I added the sunflower seed and crouton packets and used fat-free honey mustard.
and then this happened…..
Small Snickers Blast from Sonic
I am not sure what got into me. I don’t think I have had something like this in….well, ever. I think I was wanting a Blizzard from Dairy Queen but we don’t have one around here. I had been craving one since Sunday and suggested….(during the movie) we take Aidan to get a milkshake to celebrate his last day of school. What was up with that too? I never “celebrate” with food. At least I try not to SAY we are, even if we are. Sadly, this wasn’t even that great, but you better believe I ate all of it and had a stomachache afterwards. At least I got THAT out of my system!
I spent the remainder of the day chillin out on the couch or just putzin around the house. Jeremy and I stayed up too late and since I was still full (and nauseous) from the Sonic treat, I had skipped dinner. Of course by 10pm I was starving. First I had an apple. That just made me hungrier. Then I had an Annie’s PB&J granola bar & finally had a bowl of cereal. Not exactly the best things to be eating right before bed but it’s whatever.
We don’t have any plans today besides going to the gym this morning. I do need to catch up on some housework and about billion other things. Hopefully I will be able to get all those things done for my sanity!
I stumbled upon this article yesterday while I was in my sugar coma on the couch from the Sonic Blast
Best Health and Fitness Apps – Greatist
I downloaded Stress Check, Epicurious, ShopWell and Fooducate. Then I scanned almost all of my food items obsessively. Thankfully they all came up with good scores!
I hope everyone has a BEAUTIFUL Friday!!!
