Good ol' boring Saturday

It's a Saturday like any other. We slept in, woke up and watched Saturday morning cartoons on PBS and then finally got dressed and got going around 1pm. Most of the day was spent cleaning and writing homework. My dear husband hung up the lid holder from Ikea on the kitchen cabinet. I hated fishing for the right lid, so this is going to be really useful. Then he got encouraged and hung up my strainer, as well.
I love my hubby. And I am pretty sure he likes me, too. He does these little nice things that make my life easier. Ahhhh, love...

Random stuff that happened

So yesterday morning at work, I kept hearing an odd noise behind me. I turned around in my cube to find this precious little thing crawling towards me... in the office!
That totally made my day. He is one of my coworker's babies that got cut loose. Here is his twin brother. CUTE! I love babies!!!
That was a good start to the day. And then after work, I got to have dinner with my two best friends, S and D. It was awesome. I always laugh my butt off when I am with them.
Another person that makes me happy is my amazing hubby. He is the best. Here he is tinkering with the car - his favorite thing to do (other than studying law and fishing, of course).
I am so lucky.

Weigh-in Week 3

Okay... it may not be great, but it's not terrible. I lost 0.6 pounds. That is still in my 0.5-1.5lbs range. On the lower end of the spectrum, but still respectable. I figured I'd have weeks like this.
Not bad, not at all. That is a 0.36% loss. Yeah! Good bye, 0.6 old pounds. Hope I never see you again.

Root vegetable medley

My sisteroos came over on Sunday afternoon and we cooked together to the sound of neo-jazz/lounge music in the background. We always have a great time cooking together.
The creation is a root vegetable medley (only 106 calories per serving), consisting of turnips, parsnips, rutabaga, carrots, and pearl onions. It is dressed with a cumin seed, anise seed, nutmeg, cinnamon, paprika, rice wine vinegar, avocado oil, sea salt, agave nectar, and I am sure something else that I cannot remember.
It was soooooo delicious! Very earthy and autumn-y. Definitely something I'd want to make again.
