Goodies Galore

Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Put the squash down, and put your hands behind your back.

This is officially the end of my squash supply. You will not have to see another bowl for quite some time. It’s the same exact mix as last night: olives, olive oil, parm cheese, salt and pepper. I packed a pink lady, too. Have you guys tried this type of apple? It’s super sweet which is great for days that involve no sugar.

I have lots to do after work today. My VERY LAST final is tomorrow and then I only have one semester to go. YES! Again, someone please hire me come June. I promise I’ll work hard.

I cannot believe that Christmas is only 9 days away. Unfortunately I won’t be able to see my family this year for the holidays as we’ll be in Vermont. I love Len’s family but will surely miss mine. After hounding the bf for his Christmas list, he rambled off the most depressing gifts anyone could ask for. There was nothing fun which means snooze-fest shopping trips for me. I am most excited for our stockings. We made sure to hang one for Eleanor too. What’s your favorite stocking stuffer?

Lens is on top, Ellie is in the middle, and mine is the pretty blue one.

    • Chapstick is only necessary in a stocking. Cherry or Strawberry Chapstick brand please.

  3. I am eating an apple right now on my no sweets day! I love stocking too, we had a stocking for our puppy before we even picked her up. She was my present 3 years ago!

  4. I read or heard somewhere that chapstick is not so good for your lips in the winter; it will actually make your lips peel and you’ll have to keep putting it on. Vaseline lip therapy works much better and there’s no more peeling!!!!

    • Hey mom, I heard that too so last year I boycotted chapstick. My lips looked like they were we planted on a hot stove-they were so red and crusty because I stopped cold turkey. I didn’t know that vaseline lip therapy was any better. I’ll have to switch.
