Anxiously Excited

Okay, well now I am just getting excited for our trip. It seems like the weekend was pretty calm in Honduras, which makes me feel a bit better. I know that going into a place that’s already in a bit of unrest is risky and scary, but it’ll be worth it.

I’ve got so much stuff running through my head today…I have about 10 different lists going right now:

  • things to pack
  • things to still buy
  • all the random things I need to get done today at work and at home
  • a possible grocery list for the week we get back so I won’t have to think too hard to come up with meals
  • etc…

Thanks to our unplanned lunch out yesterday, we both had leftover pizza for lunch!

I had 2 slices of my whole wheat veggie pizza



Some leftover broccoli


And sliced tomato – one of which is from our garden. So good.


We ended up running a few errands at lunch today, trying to get the last things done before heading out of town tomorrow. Just a few more this afternoon and I think we’re ready! Or I hope so.

It’s back to work for me – I have a full afternoon of finishing things before going home.

Make sure to check out these giveaways!

There are some donuts up for grabs over at Soap & Chocolate, and an awesome blogiversary giveaway from Lauren at Say What You Need to Say!

Thank you all for listing where you’re at in my earlier post – if you’re a reader and you haven’t done so, let me know where you are here!

What’s your favorite thing about Mondays? Least favorite?

Favorite thing: lately, it’s been watching HIMYM on Monday nights  :) Plus, starting a fresh, new week.

Least favorite: The early alarm clock again and a long day at work after 2 days of NON-work.

  2. Oh Brandi, I’m so excited for you!! Don’t know how you can concentrate on

    Hey, I found some yellow grape tomoatoes yesterday at the farmer’s market. Made me think of the ones you are growing in your garden ;) I will try them today in my salad.

  3. Homegrown tomatoes are the best! They’re so juicy and actually TASTE like tomatoes ;)

  4. I love leftover pizza even more than I love it the first time! Yum!

    I think my fave part of Mondays is getting off work. It’s all uphill all the way through that, but then I figure I got through the worst of it and I’m ready for the rest of the week!

    Good luck with all your to-do’s I know how good it feels to get it all done!
