Date With Dad!

Verse of the Day:

 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

- John 3:17

I know I say this everytime, but this is such a great verse.  It’s so true.  Some people look at Christianity as “set of rules” that you have to live by, when in reality it is SO much more than that.  A personal relationship with Christ who SAVED us, is the total JOY of my life.  Think of where we would be without it!  Doomed to an eternity in Hell.  As opposed to thinking of God as a “dictator“, try thinking of Him as the SAVIOR He is!

That being said, I guess we’ll start at the beginning.  Before I get carried away, make sure to head on over to Danica’s Daily for your chance to win some Biggest Loser books!  Breakfast was consumed at around 7:15 AM & consisted of the typical “SOC“.

Fiber One & Optimum Nutrition.

Have I told you lately how much Cali bowls rock? :) Cause they do.

I worked until about 12 noon when I breaked to eat my packed lunch!

Lots of crunchy veggies!

I love sampler style lunches like this because I get to munch, munch, munch.  In the mix there are some cucumber fries, celery, orange pepper, snap peas, & baby carrots which got dunked in my sweet bean dip made with ff refried beans + sf syrup.

Ringling Bros. + Barnum & Bailey!

To my excitement, I saw this train outside my window at work.  Yes, this is the view from my desk!  Ringling Bros. are the most famous circus that I know of, and they’re coming to my area! 

My friend Josh & I already decided we’re totally going on Saturday night ;)  I can’t tell you the last time I went to a circus!! Does that, or does that not look freaking exciting?! 

Anywho, 4PM rolled around rather quickly and I was headed out to my Momma’s first District softball game as head coach. 

I decided some lunch dessert was in order (at 4pm?! I know ;)) before I left

apple crisp!

I microwaved a diced gala apple for about 2 min, ground up some Fiber bran cereal, and combined with some cinnamon.  MMmm Mmmm GOOOD.

yes, it was eaten in a coffee mug :)

I wrote her a little card this morning wishing her luck and telling her how proud I already was of all she’s accomplished with the girls. 

This girl hit a TRIPLE around the 5th inning which scored a bunch of runs!

It was a great game, which we almost allowed to slip through our fingers!  The score was 6-1 going into the 5th inning, but by the 7th, we were tied up!  Finally, we got a nice poke to right field made by one of the senior girls, to score a run and come out victorious, 7-6.  Momma FF was like a celeb. afterward, being interviewed by newspapers!

It was approximately 7:13PM. Ha.

When I got home I decided on something light for dinner.  While my broccoli slaw was steaming in the microwave, I chewed on a whole grain sandwich flat slathered in Sonoma Jacks & SF apricot Polaner jelly+fiber.

Quorn & slaw.

I threw a Quorn Chick’n Cutlet with my broccoli slaw and drizzled in some SF syrup mixed with soy sauce for a sweet teriyaki flavor. 

protein & veggies.

It was mighty good.  I just loveeee these easy frozen sources of protein.  They never go bad and always taste delish when you make them.  SO totally easy to prep, too! Perfect for when I’m feeling lazy ;)

Until the family got home, I went downstairs and hit the stationary bike for about an hour while facebooking (300 calories burned).

After dinner, we downloaded SKYPE!  Coolest thing EVER.  I got to have a date with my Daddy all the way in Nicaragua!!!  He comes home in FOUR DAYS!  Yes, the count down is on!  We chatted with him for about an hour & then I had a handful of bloobs for dinner dessert. 

We’ve got another Skype date tonight & I can’t wait!  Exciting news, coming tomorrow regarding a little boy from Nicaragua!

QUESTION TIME! 

1. Have you ever been to the circus?  If so, what’s your favorite “act”?  Once when I was really little!  I don’t remember much, but I LOVED the tigers.  Oh, and the acrobats!

2. Do you Skype & if so, what’s your fave feature?  I’m a newbie!  I love that I could actually SEE my Daddy from SO many miles away. Technology never ceases to amaze me.

Happy Hump Day, bloggies!  Enjoy ;)

XO.

    That’s great you are able to use Skype to chat with your dad! I have used it a few times, but I’m a newbie too, so I can’t share any tips.

    We’ve been to the circus a few times. I’m aware of the cruelty claims. There were a lot of protesters last year who got in my four year old’s face and told her that we were supporting the hurting of animals and asked if she liked that. Nice, huh? I’m okay with protesting as long as the protesters don’t get in my space and get aggressive, especially with a young child.

    There are many non-animal acts that are fabulous. I think the acrobats are my favorite. There are two shows each year, and one is better than the other. I can’t remember which is which though. One is more choreographed with music and dancing, which isn’t all that great. I prefer to see acrobats, trapeze artists, etc.

  3. I got an email from a PR rep from the B&B circus inviting my family to a special pre-show party where we’ll meet the performers and then we’ll go to the pre-show and then the show. It’s on my daughter’s 6th birthday, so it’s perfect timing.

    I asked if I could buy my parents’ tickets so they could join us and the PR rep comped them because she said she couldn’t get us all together otherwise. So nice! And my parents are thrilled we won’t have to stand out in line in the heat waiting for the doors to open for the pre-show. Otherwise they’d probably not join us this year after last year’s experience.

    Did you have a fun time?
