Today is my Dad’s Birthday :)
I know he reads the blog, so he better see this since his presents won’t be at their house yet!
We don’t live too far from our families, but I do wish we lived closer on birthdays.
I love my Dad – we’ve grown so much closer over the past 10 years, and I’m so proud to call him Dad.
I am thankful that he is supportive of anything I do, that he can always make me laugh, that he’ll sit and watch football with me for hours upon hours, and that he and my mom are still going strong, almost 32 years later? 32, right?
I’m so, so happy that I had him there to walk me down the isle and give me away. Although, he still says that he gave Nick a 5 year guarantee period, where Nick could “return” me at any time :)
I am most excited that he was able to go to Honduras with us this summer. I knew as soon as he said yes that he would fall in love with Jovenes like we did – and I think I was right! He was probably the most important person on our trip this summer, since he was the only one who really knew what to do on that roof! We could not have done this job without him.
And did I mention that he’s lost over 25 lbs since Christmas? Yup, I’m proud of him for that, too. Extremely proud. He has been working so hard, and has just done amazing.
I’m sorry I can’t spend today with him, but I hope this post will stand in until I see him next month – and the gifts that are on their way will more than likely make him smile.
Love you Dad!!!
I had no clue whatsoever for breakfast today. I just could not decide. I guess it’s good that I can’t decide because ALL of my choices are good ones, but I hate that I’m so indecisive sometimes!
Since I’m working from home today again, I decided to go easy and make another smoothie since I have all kinds of snack options if I need them.
I took this packet of the Original Blend Amazing Meal from the sample pack I ordered 2 weeks ago and blended that with some almond milk, 1 peach, and 1 Tbsp of cinnamon raisin pb (but I picked all the raisins out!). I just wanted the cinnamon flavor :)
I also peeled my peach since I don’t have a vitamix or anything. My blender works, but it’s not superpowerful, so I peeled it and just ate the chunks with the peel before drinking my smoothie.
off to work!
Do you live close to your family? How often do you see/talk to them?
