Mom’s Morning Out
Hello, hello! How goes it?
This morning was a big one—it was Lila’s first morning with her nanny! One of my students is going to watch Lila three times a week starting in the fall when I go back to teaching, and she’s going to come twice a week during the summer so that she and Lila can get to know each other. I have to admit, I was a little bit nervous about leaving this morning…but I got over it pretty quickly, ha! It sure was nice to have a few hours to go to the gym, run errands, and stop by Starbucks before heading home to little miss. And when I got home, she was doing great– wide awake and happy to be playing.
I think I’m going to like this nanny thing.
When I got home, I made myself a big ol’ green smoothie:
Blueberries, spinach, almond milk, vega powder, and cucumber (!). I never put cucumbers in my smoothies before, but I’ve started adding them and I really like it. I’m not so good about drinking water, so I figure the more hydration I can get through my food, the better.
Last night was another healthy meal:
Chicken sausage (Applegate Farms), pineapple, green pepper, and purple onions, sauteed and served over another grain mix. I know these microwave grain bags aren’t exactly economical, but DANG they are convenient. This meal took about 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish. Eat it, Rachael Ray.
Now Lila and Ryan are both napping, and I’m buzzing from my Starbucks. Maybe I’ll clean the house?!?
Or maybe I’ll catch up on the Kardashians.
Have a great day!
