Happy Sunday y’all!
I’ve been binge watching “Once Upon a Time” on Netflix with my favorite buffalo chicken soup and hot tea. Shea bird has been dealing with a full-blown cold the past 3 days.
It’s been awhile since we’ve caught up here on Bird’s Nest. What can I say? The “3W’s” have been a bit time consuming: work, working out, & wedding planning.
Speaking of wedding planning…things are moving right along and major pieces are coming together! I’ve come to realize that having an “over the top” wedding means something very specific…it means you pay “over the top”, as in… over the top of the budget! I’m sure have another blog post dedicated to my DIY candles, centerpieces, welcome bags, invitations, and how to remove spray paint quickly from ya skin. You just wait…
In other news, I’ve “borrowed” my parents Vitamix since Christmas and have been obsessed with it. My favorite go-to smoothie drink: mix 2 cups of spinach, 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 3 frozen strawberries, 1 cup of ice, 8 drops of liquid stevia. YUM. (Mom, let’s make a deal…either I could permanently “borrow” this lovely machine or it would make a lovely wedding present…however you want to look at it.)
Another YUM…Quest nutrition protein bars are my new favorite treats. ¼ to ½ of a bar will usually suffice for a “tie-me-over”. Honorable flavor mentions: chocolate chip cookie dough, S’mores, and cookies & cream. You won’t be disappointed!
I had a bridezilla moment the other morning when my MOH (maid of honor) told me about one of our favorite restaurants not having the baked brie appetizer we were wanting for the bachelorette weekend. Yes y’all, bridezilla over brie cheese. Heh…if you don’t understand, this article sums everything you need to know about me when it comes to food.
Life is good, I am blessed and humbly grateful. I miss Michael terribly. Being long distance while planning for a wedding and marriage isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a good thing we have ski plans coming up soon! Yippeeee!
I hope all is well in your precious life!
