Sunday Eats & Essential Oils

Happy Monday!  Where did the weekend go?  Friday night Kris wasn’t feeling so well, so we had a low key evening.  I caught up on How to get Away with Murder and Suits.  I have to say, I really enjoyed the season finale of HTGAWM, but I did not like the end!  I never would have guessed who killed Lila, but I still woke up Saturday morning with a bad taste in my mouth about how it all went down.

Saturday we helped my sister move, which ended up taking the entire day.  But on the bright side, there was pizza!  I would do just about anything for pizza.

And yesterday was a nice relaxing Sunday.  One of my favorite weekend activities is waking up and having a cup of coffee followed by an egg sandwich.  I’m not sure I can even describe my love for weekend egg sandwiches.  I dream of them during the week.


1 whole grain English muffin, 2 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice swiss, 2 fried eggs & a side of kiwi


For lunch I threw together chicken kale bowl supplies with a La Croix water on the side


After lunch, I went out for an afternoon run and I have never been so convinced that I might have frostbite.  The temperature wasn’t terrible, but the roads were terribly wet and my shoes and socks were soaked within 5 minutes.  I suspect I have circulation problems to begin with (my fingers and toes are always getting cold and going numb), so this was a very regrettable decision.  It’s a pretty terrible feeling thawing out frozen toes.  Is it spring yet????

After the run and the thawing of the toes, I made a protein shake with a vanilla AboutTime protein powder packet, a banana, 4 ice cubes, and some Vanilla Coconut almond milk.  yum!!


For dinner we had the last of the leftover pizza casserole and I had a big glass of wine.

I also had to share my love for this Essie nail color –  butler please.  I did an experiment where I used gel polish for the top and bottom coats. I love gel nail polish, but I have so many awesome regular colors (and not too many exciting gel ones), so I’m attempting to find a way to combine them.  So far it’s not chipping as badly as regular polish, but it’s not as chip resistant as pure gel.


Yesterday I finally decided to try out an essential oil burner that I got for Christmas.  I had been wanting to try it out but the directions weren’t exactly made for dummies so I was a little nervous that the end result would be me burning my house down. Good news – I did not burn my house down.  I added mostly olive oil and a little Lavender, but next time I would definitely add more lavender.  After it burnt out I just put some pure lavender oil in it (and didn’t light again) because I was loving the smell.  I think I found a perfect new way to relax: 1 large glass of wine + pure lavender oil.

I may need to look into a good diffuser.


We ended the day with House of Cards and an early bedtime.  We are still only on Season 1.  We have trouble really getting into the show, but I keep hearing such great things and we’re no quitters.

Last night when I walked into the bedroom to go to bed my heart melted a little bit when I saw that Kris had already tucked B in for bed.  Am I the only one who tucks my dog in before bed?  (In my defense, it seems to keep her in her own bed a little bit longer.)


Now it’s time to get Monday started!  Have a great day!
