"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye." -Miss Piggy

haha. I love that quote. Its funny, but i think that you can get a real positive message out of it. I think sometimes I get so concerned with how others see me that i need to just stop and think...wait! I think im just fine, and anyone that thinks otherwise is just "misinformed"

There is nothing more gorgeous than a confidence.

Anyway, yesterday was SUCH a boring day! I had asked off work to go on a trip with my manager, but she canceled! I wish I would have just worked, I get so restless and bored when I have nothing to do. I did get in a little grocery shopping though, and picked up a bunch of fruits and veggies!! Just look at our fruit bowl!

I cant wait to pick up some blueberries and strawberries soon too! Yesterday for lunch I tried to make a wrap and grill it on the ol' Georgie, but I dont think I have mastered the art of "rolling" these things up because they always turn out to be a mess. I also had an apple on the side.

And if you would draw your attention to the AWESOME plate that it is all sitting on...I got a couple new dishes at target yesterday as well. I have been wanting just some simple plates with colorful designs and these were only 2$!! I picked up two and a bowl as well:

The bowl (and the banana that was previously pictured) made an appearance at breakfast this morning. I finally decided it was time for something new and made oatmeal again for the first time since graduation!

This mix contained oats (DUH!), 1 banana, strawberries, cinnamon, and some of my bear naked granola that I recieved in the mail...YUM!!

And of course my ritualistic cup of BLACK coffee. haha. the boyfriend makes fun of me for drinking black coffee, he says I take it "like a teacher".I guess its true, teachers ALWAYS need their coffee and they need it strong! I put my coffee in the same mug almost every morning, because it is the perfect size and I just love it!

Alright, my off the start the day! I hope everyone has a grrrreat Saturday! Anyone doing anything fun tonight?!


For lunch today I was feeling something a little bit different than a turkey sandwich, and I wanted something gooey and messy for some reason! SO! tuna salad sandwich it was! I HATE mayo so I always use mustard instead. I mixed mustard, tuna, diced tomatoes, relish, and garlic hummus together, piled up some spinach leaves on some whole wheat bread and toasted the whole thing. On the side with an apple...on my new plate!!! I have to say, I usually like my sandwiches better toasted, but warm tuna is kinda time I will not toast!
