It was pretty good, I thought it would be spicier. I liked it with crackers spread lightly with olive oil mayo.
Lunch Meal: Lean Cuisine Honestly Good Pomegranate Chicken
This was quite tasty I must say. One of the best microwave dinners I have had.
New Purchase: Watch
Target kinda messed on with their mobile coupons, and forgot the wording, "Equal or lesser value" so instead of fixing it, they decided to let everyone buy an accessory and get any one under $60 for free. I was responsible and bought a $12 watch getting this one for $50 for free, but a whole bunch of people bought $2 earrings and received $59 watches for free. crazy!
Make-Up: Jedi Princess
I volunteered with Project Hero at the Phoenix Public Library on Saturday. I wore the same costume from San Diego Comic Con, but tried out a new make-up. I loved it. Its hard to see, but the pink on the bottom of my eyes was outlines and blended in a purple and the sprays coming out of each side hos a blue dot that matched my costume. When I left the house I was a Jedi, but after being told I was a pretty princess, it became so haha!
Day 5 Part 2
Beverage: Pumpkin Porter
For a second item, I went to lunch with my friends Jackie and Garrick and they took me to have breakfast and beers. It was Four Peaks Pumpkin Porter on top and it was pretty nice. I still think I like my snake bites the best. Was fantasizing about this mixed with Woodchucks Fall Cider. I bet it would be delicious.
Costume Creation: EggShoes
What I thought would be simple egg shaped slippers for Breakfast Princess, became the bane of day. Not so simple to get nice smooth rounded stuffed slippers. Let's just say I called it quits for a Round 2 on Tuesday.
(They look like Smurf shoes, don't they lol - and they failed on Tuesday aswell)
Book: Herbs and Spices
I want to grow and Herb garden in the spring, so I think think I will start reading up now.
Exercise: Ball Bridges
I have been going to Physical Therapy for the past month because in August I thought I pulled a lower back muscle but turns out I dislocated my sacroiliac joint, and tweaked my back - woohoo I don't have pictures but I have a wonderful new workout that killed me. I lay on my back with my legs on an exercise ball, while balancing I bridge my back up, squeezing my glutes. It really strains my lower back if I don't do it properly, so I continue to chant Butt, Butt, butt, the entire time. After my set of 20, and I am ready for child's pose.
Snack: Yoplait Greek Tropical Fruit Yoghurt
This is pretty good. I am surprised because every Greek yoghurt I have tried so far has been to bitter for me. I like this one and it was pretty goo on the nutritional side as well with only 9 grams of sugar. Some of the others have 20+ yikes!
So that is all for now and I will post more soon...
If there is anything new you think I should try, let me know!
