It’s the Small Things

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posting today, but… It’s my birthday so I’m taking a break! I awoke this morning to a beautiful sunrise!

You are correct: I couldn’t even manage to sleep in on my birthday! I promise, I tried! Another special birthday thing: the pretty flowers I got at Trader Joe’s!

Only $2.99!!! I love Trader Joes…

Another goodie? On Friday for lunch I FINALLY made Chelsey’s Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash with Basalmic Maple Glaze! You should really try this – the glaze makes it AMAZING!

Notice anything missing? Perhaps the quinoa? I was so hungry (and on the phone…) when I was making this that I completely forgot to cook the quinoa! By the time I realized it, I was too hungry to wait! Haha, so I used double the amount of chickpeas for a one person serving. Worked for me!

And last but not least, you know you’re officially a year older when you have to insert your age on the elliptical:

Hope you all are having a great weekend! I’ll have a birthday re-cap for you all tomorrow!

What are some small special things that you like to appreciate?

  1. Happy Birthday! Those flowers are beautiful!

    I couldn’t sleep in either, but a sunrise is always perfect in the morning when enjoyed with a cup of coffee/tea and some quiet reflection time.

  2. Happy birthday!!!!

    That’s so funny what you said about the elliptical–that’s always when it really sinks in for me that I’m a year older :-)

  3. I hope you had a spectacular birthday! It seems like you did for the sunrise to the flowers to the food. So lovely!

    I am new to your blog but I am already loving it! So creative and the food you make looks awesome!

    I am just starting out with blogging and training on my site, would love to connect!

    Have a great Sunday!!
