Flowers To Brighten A Day…

Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are having a good day so far.  My day yesterday was extremely stressful.  It seems as though this week is going to be as stressful as last unfortunately.  The worst is when your workplace is really stressful.  I have enough stress in my daily life, that my work was actually a place where I could relax, and get my work done.  Now, it’s very stressful.  I need to find a way to release my stress.  Usually cooking or singing does that for me.  I feel as though I’m going to be cooking and singing up a storm lately!  How do you deal with stress?

Mike surprised me when he got home with a beautiful bouquet of flowers because of how upset I’ve been lately.

Beautiful fall flowers

My pretty flowers! <3

For dinner last night, I had another bowl of chili with roasted veggies, just like Sunday night.  It truly left so many leftovers.  I love dinners like that.  Roasting vegetables is simple so I don’t mind that.  After a long day at work, it was nice to know that a great dinner was just sitting and waiting for me to reheat in the microwave.  Rather than bore you with another of the same picture of the chili, I decided not to post one.  You can thank me later.

I do want to talk about a new snack favorite that I have.  Ari from FiberGourmet had sent me some of their products to try.  I had tried their light cheese snacks several years ago and couldn’t find them since.  They manufacture crackers, pasta and cake.  These products have 10 times more fiber than the regular conventional products.  They even have more fiber than whole wheat.  They use insoluble fiber which has no calories.  They use resistant starch technology which allows the body to break it down better than cellulose-based fibers which are the ones that cause bloated and stomach issues.

They sell a ton of different types of pastas, crackers, light mac and cheese and light cake mix.  This is what Ari sent me to try:

FiberGourmet Products

Light Cheese Snacks (contain 50 calories a package)

Light Wheat Snacks (contain 150 calories)

Lite Nacho Snacks (which contain 80 calories)

Lite Frosted Brownies (contain 90 calories a package)

Light Rotini

Now I haven’t tried all of these products just yet.  I can’t wait to try the rest of these products.  I have tried the Light Cheese Snacks and they really do taste like conventional Cheez-It’s.  You can’t even tell that the package only has 50 calories in it.  It would make for a perfect mid-day snack.  They have some really great products.  They are difficult to find so your best bet is to order them online.  Have you tried any of these products?  Would you try them?

What is your favorite type of snack?  Lately, I’ve been very big into pretzels. I have little snack sized pretzel bags at my desk.  I usually like something salty and crunchy.  I do have those moments where I want something sweet.  I do have a sweet tooth after all.  I like to mix my snacks up.  :)

As you know tomorrow is Wednesday which means it is Wedding Talk.  I wanted to see if any of you have any wedding topics that you would like for me to address tomorrow or in the future.  Let me know if you have any ideas or questions and I will feature it on Wedding Talk Wednesday.  I have a feeling that I might run out of ideas running up to my wedding.  My goal is to have a Wedding post every week until my wedding.  So please let me know if you have anything.

Alright, time for me get back to work.  Here’s to hoping that today will be better than yesterday!  Have a great one!  :)

  1. It helps me when I’m stressed to sing also! I’ll be at my computer singing (and not even realizing it)– my roommates probably thinks I’m crazy : )

  2. That was so sweet of him to bring you flowers! When my husband does that, it instantly lifts my spirits! I, too, LOVE leftovers! In fact, I try at least once a week (usually when I make dinner in the slow cooker) to make enough that we can freeze leftovers for the next week.
    Hope you have a great day!

  3. Those flowers are very pretty. It was very sweet of Mike to get them for you. Flowers will always cheer a girl up. I’ve never tried anything by the Fiber Gourmet, but it looks like god stuff!

  4. Beautiful flowers!! That was so very sweet of him to bring them to you! :)

  5. I’m sorry that this week is shaping up to be as stressful as last. Fingers crossed for something to change soon. How sweet is Mike to bring you flowers, though? They’re beautiful!!

    • Thank you. I hope something changes soon too. I don’t know how much longer I can stand being treated this way. It’s making things really uncomfy. :( Thank you! I thought it was really nice of him.

  6. Aww those flowers are so nice!!!! It sounds lame and cliche, but I do deep breathing for a quick fix.

  7. Awww pretty flowers! I workout or eat to deal with stress…good things they balance each other out!
