One more week to enter my Zevia Giveaway!
This morning I had a vanilla Oikos topped with Fiber One for breakfast, which was a typical start to my day. I want to start mixing up my breakfast ideas and trying new things, but I’ve got to say that’s one of my weaknesses. I don’t have much time in the morning, so maybe I should get up an extra 10 minutes earlier in order to actually cook something? I could see Egg Beater omelettes in the near future…We’ll see if I actually put this plan into action. I have good intentions! It’s just so convenient to grab something out of the fridge that’s already ready.
I knew I would be eating lunch out again, because my boss and I have to run out to do the Holiday Wish shopping for a family that our section is sponsoring. We’ve been collecting gift and monetary donations for the past few weeks for a needy family to provide Christmas presents for them this year as a voluntary program at work, and it was time to go shopping for the remaining items on the gift list! In our family, we’re buying for a young, single mother and her two little boys, ages 3 &5. You could tell by the lists that they made, they would be happy with anything that was given to them. They barely listed anything. It just read on the lists that they enjoyed “superheroes” and that they both needed sweaters and jeans. I wish we could’ve done more! We ended up with a bunch of toys, and everything that they needed clothing wise, along with a Weis gift card for groceries and anything else they may need at the store. The mother was just a little older than me, and I could not imagine the kind of weight that must be on her shoulders raising two little boys on her own.
We decided on sushi/chinese for lunch at Hong Kong Ruby.
We got the sashimi appetizer to split:
My boss ordered the Dragon Roll and the Steamed Shrimp with Vegetables:
And for my meal, I ordered the steamed veggies and shrimp as well.
I was stuffed by the time we left the restaurant!
I did try on lots of cute party dresses, but nothing I would feel comfortable wearing to sing in front of my church in the choir. So that posed a problem. Anyway, hope you all had a great Tuesday!
