Seven Year Itch

 

Well, not really, but today WAS our 7 year wedding anniversary. I didn’t believe Mom when she told me it was a real term. I had to Google it: Wiki Answers Seven Year Itch. Pretty funny.

Seven years ago I became a Mrs. and poor Andrew had no idea what he was in for. Smile

Since we had such a busy staycation the other week, we decided not to do anything special today except take things easy. Last night was our official celebration and just in case you’re wondering, I DID in fact burn that darn broccoli. Grrr…

We stuck to the Costco raviolis though and they were fabulous. So was this wine from my friend Jenna. (Thanks Jenna!) And after a glass of wine I wasn’t as upset about the broccoli. Ha!

Plus we finished things off with a big bowl of Dreyer’s Fun Flavors Butterfinger ice cream. Yowzah.

Andrew worked today, so the boys and I celebrated the only way we know how-

an early morning treadmill run to start the day followed by some baked green French toast. I made SunButter Banana French Toast Bake for the boys (just blended some spinach in the egg mixture).

So it doesn’t look that great, but I’m telling you it is GOOD! SmileThe color will grow on you.

Mine had some Naturally More and sugar free jelly in the middle on my favorite bread.

And some PB2 mixed with soy milk on top.  Smile

And some sugar free maple syrup.

Holy breakfast Batman.

Do you ever have to eat like this?

After church we got some Kitty hugs and kisses.

After some boring laundry with Mom,

Dad got home and these “Stud Puffins” got to have some REAL fun.

Once we got the boys to bed we made some fish tacos with this tilapia from Costco.

Fish, corn tortillas, angel hair coleslaw, Sriracha sauce, low fat pepper jack cheese and homemade pico de gallo (Andrew made it). Yum! It was so good I couldn’t take a picture because I was busy stuffing my face.

I DID manage to take a picture of these.

We made our own version of skinny margaritas. Hmmmm…. let’s call them

STUFT-ritas (adapted from the original Hungry Girl Magical Low Calorie Margarita)

IMG_3557

1 can diet lemon lime soda

1 packet lemon lime drink mix (I used Market Pantry from Target)

2-3 ounces tequila (or more)

a little fresh lime juice

1-2 cups crushed ice

 

Blend or drink up on ice. It’s great either way! This makes two large margaritas. (A little more tequila may have been added to our drinks after blending.)

IMG_3573

These are REALLY great topped with an ounce of amaretto. (We didn’t have any on hand and we’re trying to not spend money so we went without.)

Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband! (I think he reads this now since I subscribed him. I guess I’ll find out.)

And just for laughs- here’s the card he got from me today.

Inside it says “Communication is everything.” Ha ha ha!

See you soon! Smile

    I’m feeling like a crazy stalker but wanted to let you know that I enjoyed seeing your guest post pop up on FFF blog that I also follow.

    I feel like your story is so similar to mine after reading your post. I found the same food harmony when pregnant but lost it later on and am still working on regaining that balance. And while we conceived our son 5 years ago rather easily, we have now been dealing with infertility and the treatments for the last three years.

    I’m adding your green french toast to my recipe list. I love me some green smoothies and pancakes, so looks like it’s time to try a new recipe.

      Tara- please stalk ANYTIME! 🙂 I know, I totally try to look back at how “normal” I was durnig pregnancy. Maybe it has a lot more to do with hormones than we think. I’m still struggling too! Every day is different and I totally have days when I “let go”. Some weeks are good ones, some are not! Ugh. Let’s find that darn balanc etogether! 🙂 PS- I can talk infertility until the cows come home. Email me anytime.
