Coming up for air..

It has been entirely too long since I have updated my blog. This saddens me because I find pure enjoyment and relaxation in blogging about my recipes and life. I have been very busy this last week and need time to come up for air! This weekends agenda is non existent, I am not planning ANYTHING. I am going to spend time cleaning, doing laundry, and cooking :) I enjoy cleaning, or should I say I enjoy a clean house. I am going to take some "me" time to relax, enjoy the beautiful weather, and have QT with Mark. I will have plenty of updates from the weekend! I have a rather large eggplant sitting in my refrigerator waiting to be eaten, any suggestions? I am going to make this guy tonight but want to find the perfect recipe! Confession, I'm not a huge eggplant lover because of the texture but I always find myself purchasing one at the grocery, along with 100 other things I don't need :)

I am setting new goals for myself. I am going to start running for "fun" and not improvement. I find myself overwhelmed when trying to meet pace and distance goals. I will take the next few weeks to enjoy my run for what it is.

I also started making "money envelopes". Many of you have probably heard of this strategy from the famous Dave Ramsey. I have complete confidence in his strategies and would like to get back on the wagon. I have fallen off and find myself spending entirely too much money on FOOD! I will now make myself an allowance at the beginning of the month and only put an alloted amount of cash in.

After meetings and training I finally got to meet my "little buddy" Ariana. I am taking part in College Mentors for Kids! It's such a positive and fun experience and I can't wait to mentor Ariana and create a friendship. We made friendship bracelets ;) She insists on me calling her "Ari" and her calling me "Manda".

Breakfast tomorrow will include a delectable recipe from Hungry Meets Healthy. More on this later...

Keep it Happy, Keep it Healthy, Keep it Sweet!
