This week is bananas. And not in a cute, Gwen-Stefani-chanting-in-a-top-40-hit kind of way. In a "real life" kind of way.
Quick digression that comes from that "real life" thought: I read this morning that you should dress as though you're bound to see your worst enemy. While I hope none of us have enemies, middle school girls and Real Housewives aside, I can see that point. Isn't it always the 30 second run to the store that finds you catching up with people you haven't seen in ages?
That said, I've found the perfect way to describe how I look lately. In Style magazine wants me to dress for my worst enemy, but my comfort/crazy hair/"glistening" gal on the go look has me more hopeful that I'm running into my best friend. You know, the one who lets you look half-hobo, half-flu-patient and still loves you?
Okay, so I've said that. Excuse the stream of consciousness, but it's all I can do today to get my fingers to work, so here we go...
Where were we? Ah yes - menu Monday. I have one! Let's see:
Monday: Crockpot barbeque chicken sandwiches, pasta salad and fresh fruit. (This is a meal I've made for a new mom friend who is off of dairy for a while. I just doubled everything!)
Tuesday: Spaghetti and salads. (Read: Out-of-town meeting and Mac's first morning with a babysitter. I'd rather fill my afternoon with mom/son catch-up than slaving stove-side.)
Wednesday: Breakfast! Grits, eggs, biscuits and turkey bacon.
Thursday: Baked lemon pepper chicken, steamed green beans and oven-roasted potatoes.
Friday: Leftovers! So thankful B loves these, as I'll be in Columbia to see some dear friends in a play. You free? Come on by!
Saturday: Hoping for a shrimp boil with friends! Two of our sweetest friends absolutely saved our lives yesterday - and possibly Blue's. Story to come! In the meantime, I'm salivating over the scent of Old Bay already.
Hope you have a wonderful, less B-A-N-A-N-A-S kind of week. xoxo
