Happy Friday, y'all!
One of my most FAVORITE things about today is that this is my last Friday to work until August!!! This year our school calendar has next Thursday as the last day for teachers and we are thrilled. Until then, we're all like...
Earlier in the week I was getting ready to peel and chop these sweet potatoes in order to roast them in the oven. Roasted sweet potatoes are Dustin's FAVORITE thing to eat, and he would want me to cook them every day if I would. My old vegetable peeler was awful and I hated the thought of making these, but I just ordered a new one from Pampered Chef and had these babies peeled in no time!
My sister and her husband were gone to the beach for a week--yay for her and sad for me! I missed having her here, so when I talked to her on the phone as they were driving back Tuesday, I immediately invited them over for dinner. I knew she wouldn't feel like cooking anything after getting back from the beach and unpacking. After dinner, we all went on a walk around my neighborhood. Our walks together are always a FAVORITE!
Even Nick and Ralphie came! Walks might be Ralph's FAVORITE thing, too! Right after doing all of his tricks!
I typically cook 4-5 nights out of the 7 day week. And my FAVORITE food ever is pizza. Like I really could eat pizza multiple days a week. Before I began my weight loss journey, I ate Pizza Hut, Dominos--you name it. Now things have changed and the only pizza I order out is the vegetarian one from Papa Murphy's. But I've just recently learned to make my own dough (whole wheat of course), so we pretty much have homemade pizza once a week!
Yesterday I wrote a post about how my husband falls asleep everywhere. The fact that he sleeps when we're trying to watch a TV show together is definitely not a FAVORITE, but yesterday's post was! #wheredustinsleeps
Finally, my most FAVORITE thing today is the community I live in. The little girl pictured above is a first grader in my little town. She was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. My community has banded together supporting her and her family and raising lots of money to help with any sort of costs the family may have (She is receiving treatment at St. Jude's in Memphis and of course, this is free for children). If you get a moment, please go check out her Facebook page Prayers for Kayleigh and read about the amazing faith her parents have during this time in their lives.
I and a few other teachers will be raising money and running the St. Jude's half marathon in her honor in December.
