How’s your Thursday? Mine’s been wonderful! I’ve been reading all over the blogs that so many of y’all feel like today should be Friday and that this week is going by slow. I don’t think so…I find this week to be going so fast! Maybe it’s because I have been so busy with work! It seems to be non stop this week…it’s nice to be busy though. It’s especially nice to be busy and I am so thankful to take a break to blog πŸ™‚

I am watching Melrose Place right now. I’m so thankful for DVR today. I watched 90210 first…gosh, I loved it in the 90’s and I love it now! I am so excited that all of the shows are starting back up again. Are y’all? Now, I’m just waiting on Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, and The Office. Sounds like a lot, I know! But, that’s why I love my DVR πŸ™‚

While catching up on my guilty pleasure of trashy TV watching I am also working on my Hotel, Restaurant, Tourism assignment due Friday. One part of the assignment was to watch this video on You Tube…

I watched it twice πŸ˜‰ Don’t you just love Lumiere and Mrs. Potts? Oh, and who can forget Chip? Yep, I am definitely thankful for Beauty and the Beast!

Cooking dinner tonightPan-Grilled Snapper with Orzo Salad.I am super excited about it! My mom is picking up the snapper today after she is done shopping (what a life). But if we don’t have snapper I will just use tilapia instead. I’ll let ya know how it turns out, for sure. I am a huge fish lover and I just adore Orzo!

Have a beautiful day! Oh, and thanks for all the sweet comments y’all left about my new hair πŸ™‚ Y’all are dolls!

Hey y’all!

How’s your (thankful) Thursday so far? Mine’s been busy! But, I am thankful for my busy day πŸ™‚ I just got home from the gym and now I’m all showered and ready for the day!! Today’s agenda includes:

  • Gap with my mama
  • Write a paper!! A quick 2 page paper on the naeyc code of ethics…early childhood education stuff.
  • Grocery shopping for the beach with some gal pals
  • Begin packing…I am an over packer and I am determined not to be one for this mini vacation.


This is what it looks like when I leave to go on vacation. Well maybe not that bad πŸ˜‰

Have a wonderful day!!

Hey guys! Happy (thankful) Thursday πŸ™‚ Right now, I am thankful for my warm cup ofΒ  French Market coffee that I am enjoying oh so much!


I am also thankful that I am able to cook dinner tonight for my family! A few months ago I started cooking dinner for my family once a week, usually something healthy and easy. I really enjoy cooking and I am so thankful that I have the chance to do so. It was not until a few months ago that I began to show interest in using the stove and oven, instead of only relying on the good old microwave. I guess I thought the microwave got the job done in half the time a stove or oven would. But, I am beginning to enjoy spending time preparing meals. There is so much love and effort behind a meal. And, I really love sitting down with my family to eat what I’ve prepared…at the dinner table, at the same time (like we used to every single night when Lizzy and I were growing up…before college and jobs and boys took place)! Family dinner is a rare occurrence and is usually reserved for Sundays, but I notice our family dinner beginning to take place more and moreΒ  during the work week and it’s lovely.

So, anyway the menu for tonight is Grilled Tilapia with Smoked Paprika and Parmesan Polenta. It’s a Cooking Light recipe and sounds delicious, healthy, and simple. I can’t wait to get in the kitchen later! I mean look at what will be the result…

Happy Thursday!
