Blend It Up…

Hi there!  Happy Friday!!  We finally made it!  I don’t know why this week felt like forever to go by.  I’m just glad that it’s almost over with and we can move onto the weekend.   I have had enough of this week.  I’ve been stressed out beyond belief.  Every time I think something is settling, another thing pops up that is making me very stressed out.  I wish I could catch a break.  All of the stress goes right to my stomach too.  It doesn’t make any matters better.  Ugh. 

Yesterday after work, I picked up Melissa on my ride home and we stopped at my house to pick up a few things before going out to run errands.  Well wouldn’t you know it?  I got selected for District Court Jury Duty AGAIN!!!!!  I just got picked a couple of months ago.  I thought if you got selected, it excuses that for you for several years.  Unless that is if you actually go in?  I didn’t have to end up showing up.  This time, it’s smack in the middle of all of my health issues.  I honestly don’t know how I could possibly sit in a courtroom feeling the way that I do.  At least when I’m at work,  I have access to the bathroom whenever I need to go.  I don’t know what I would do if I was sitting in a courtroom.  So I’m planning on calling my doctor today and seeing if she can fill out a form for me to submit because logically I don’t see how this is possible.  I can’t even get my Crohn’s into remission yet and I don’t know how I could manage sitting there.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be excused for medical reasons.

Once I finally calmed down after receiving that in the mail once again, Melissa and I were on our way.  We decided to eat at Ruby Tuesday and give it another try.  This time we went to a different one that we haven’t been to in a while.  I’m getting real sick of eating chicken, so I asked the waiter if the crab cake was fried.  He said no, it was grilled.  Perfect!  So that is what I decided to order.

Grilled crab cake, baked potato and spaghetti squash


At this point, I didn’t even care if my stomach was killing me while eating this.  I wanted to eat something different from what I have been eating for months on end now.  I loved the spaghetti squash.  It was cooked perfectly.   I wish I was able to cook it like that when I make it.  I’ve tried making it twice and both times were huge fails.  I definitely would like to try again.

After dinner, Melissa and I went to DSW, and to Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Mike and I received a gift that we registered for that we really didn’t end up liking/needing.  I’m not sure why we registered for it in the first place.  So I decided to return it and replace it with a blender.  We have never had a blender.  I think it’s important right now because I am unable to eat fruits and vegetables.  So I’m thinking if I make them in smoothie form, my stomach might be able to handle it.  Plus, we could make soups with it and do a whole bunch of other things.  I think a blender is a necessity!  So I ended up picking up a KitchenAid Blender

Do you have a blender?  Do you know of any good smoothie recipes for me to try?  I’m excited to try this blender!  I’m also looking forward to trying banana soft serve.  Yum!  I figure that it matches our KitchenAid Mixer.  So once we buy a house and have enough counter space, it will match well together.  I’m hoping that this is a good one.  I really wanted a VitaMix but those things are crazy expensive!

After shopping, we went back to Melissa and my mom’s house and I hung out for a little while and played with Oliver.  Speaking of which, his birthday is next Saturday!  I cannot wait.  It’s a big birthday for him! 

What are you doing this weekend?

Alright, well that is my story for today.  Have a great Friday!!

  1. I have a really crappy blender. I got it for free when I bought my george Forman grill so I guess I can’t complain.
    My fav smoothies are banana berries and spinach with a splash of almond milk. Yum!
