Okay, this is exactly how I felt at the end of my workday Friday when it was finally time to go home.
It's not that I had big plans for the weekend... I didn't. I just like the idea of sleeping in the next morning and laying around in my pj's with the hubby. I mean, why can't every day be Saturday? Anyway, my normal routine is to make a big breakfast, but hubby and I are trying to increase our fruit and veggie intake and cut back on fatty foods. A few days ago, I ordered a Jack Lalanne juicer for that very reason. Good-bye fattening pancakes and syrup, hello healthy green drinks.
So, this is everything I juiced to make a green drink for breakfast this morning. Spinach, one red apple, one green apple, 1/2 lemon, 2 stalks of celery, 2 carrots, ginger and a tablespoon each of Chia seeds and Barley green.
Okay, I have to be honest with you.This is definitely going to take some getting used to.
I drank it all, but it sure wasn't easy. I actually had to wash this stuff down with some hot tea and 3 chocolate chip cookies just to get the horrible taste out of my mouth. Okay, I realize that I'll need to tweak this recipe a little... or a lot. Maybe I'll ditch the celery and ginger and add more fruit or something, but I'll have to find a better combination for me and hubby, because he didn't like the way it tasted either.
So fast forwarding past breakfast, my daughters and I headed to Ikea in Maryland. I've been on the hunt for a new media center and today was finally the day. I didn't plan on choosing anything fancy. I just wanted it to be affordable and big enough to hold the television and our DVD collection. After spending about an hour in this section of the store, this is the one I ended up taking home with me.
And this is darling hubby putting it together.
In case your wondering, both my daughters and hubby will not allow me to take pictures of them and post them on my blog for the whole wide world to see.
It's okay though. It's their choice and I'm cool with it. My husband must have been in a good mood today though, because for a change, he let me take pictures of his face... well, sort of. It was really more of the left side of his face, then a little part of the right and there's a really good one of the top of his head. It's really too bad too, because he's such a handsome fellow.
It's almost done! He's putting the drawers together now.
Yeah! Here it is. The finished product. Thanks honey! He ended up removing one of the shelves in the center to make room for the radio which the tv is hooked up to. It gives us the surround sound experience without paying the surround sound price. I'm not crazy about those wooden crates that he propped the speakers on, but it'll do for the time being. Also, we swapped the handles with some that were a little smaller. Now, I'll have to stuff it with all my junk. See, there was a reason I picked a unit with doors.
Well, that's how we spent our day. We're about to have movie night. So...
Until next time...
