Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Today at Trader Joe’s I broke down and just bought the HUGE container of soy protein powder. I have been looking for a while for something to help boost protein, but I just think all protein supplement things are NASTY and weird and gross and the texture is just HORRID!! BLEEGGGCCCKKK!!! I usually buy those single use packets of the non-dairy protein powder first before trying the WHOLE thing. That’s why it was hard to buy the whole thing… I…

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Hello all! (listening to Mode by Bingo Players…. I REALLY LIKE THIS SONG!) The birds are awakening and I have yet to sleep. 🙁 I’m anxious, thinking too much, stressed out, freaking out over life and my job, and I was just unable to fall asleep much to the dismay of River and friends. 🙁  So what do I do at this hour of night when I can’t sleep? I find recipes or create them for face things. Tonight we…

Things to do :)

Things to do :)

Bulk grocery list. Since I’m starting a real nursing job I have been having a lot of ideas go through my brain about budgeting, things I want, things I am excited to start paying off, how I would like to see my life in the next year, and other adultish things. I just ate a huge bowl of oatmeal with peaches in it though.. so maybe all the healthiness of the oatmeal has mucked up my brain with ideas of…

Magnaminty, Scrubs, and generic life things

Well, today has so far been a fun day 🙂 Woke up in a great mood, snuggled with River a bit, then went off to the gym. I finally brought my printer in. Hahahaha, I just have to find all the cords for it now because I need to scan items and send them into different organizations for name changes and such. Le sigh. On other news, I need my usual LUSH face mask today… Mask of Magnaminty 🙂 Everytime…

It’s a dangerous business.

It’s a dangerous business.

I am restless. The doors keep slamming. I know I am meant for more than this life I am living right now. The day to day routine just going to my little jobs is training, building, and shaping me for something else. I JUST KNOW IT!  I am ready. I am going to find a path, make it if I have to, and I am going to go live my life the way I want to. I need an adventure….

Pizza, Gym-time, and cozy clothes.

These last two days were interesting. …. I had a fun day in Seattle yesterday and ate deliciously… I also found The Walking Dead graphic novel and am HOOKED!! Also, I”m broke til next month probably. I spent about 22 bucks on groceries tonight…. I got a big bag of potatoes, some cheese, some marinara, cashews (bulk version), and broccoli… I’m pretty sure I will make it on what I have and those few groceries I just got.  Today I…

Everybody and their mom…

Everybody and their mom…

Is in surgery, having a medical emergency, or something of that nature right now 🙁 I think at least 6 of my friends have had a medical emergency for their mom or their grandma. I was going to complain earlier that I am having a horrible bad hair day… but then realizing so many of my friends were having to go through this stuff with close loved ones, I decided WHO CARES about my bad hair day.. just deal with…

Dreams…

I have been to Africa three times this last year… yes I would love to go back. But being able to be there three times has satisfied my desire for a bit. It taught me to be content where I am in life. These last six to seven months have been a challenge and they have been fun. I feel so enlightened about myself and who I am. I have owned up to mistakes I have made and I am…

When pastors are honest….

When pastors are honest….

Tonight I went to church. I go to Eastlake Community Church over in Bothell. I have been going there since March when I got back from Togo. I found the church through divorcecare.org to a group I went to. I didn’t really mesh with that group so I went to a different group; however, just going to that group led me to the church. I went with Steena the first time and we enjoyed it. My favorite part of Eastlake…
