truth be told...

my heart has been heavy this week

for something great...

so what is a girl to do?

you may be wondering...

but I have the perfect solution today...

and I think it just may work...

for me anyway ~

I'm slapping a big ole' smile on my face...
because that view not only is beautiful but has hydrangeas in it...

and

because it is the weekend baby...it sure is...and I'm excited about that!

I couldn't be happier today

because last night ~ I hit "complete order"

and it was the happiest order I placed to date for anything...

I don't talk much about my work except to those who are interested...so please don't click away yet...pretty please because I'm not talking about it...I promise!

Everyone that personally knows me know I don't do this blog at all with business intentions...

for one...I cannot on the blog because we aren't able since I have a website...100% okay with me

and two...I love having this blog separate from what I do...

but my clients and myself helped in providing 
192 meals for Haiti with some of our ready made products...

and I couldn't have felt better

because when some of my clients asked to help...I was amazed that they took it upon themselves on such short notice to forward the message on ~ the cases ordered provided meals...

And I'm happy about that ~ ecstatic ~

I'm smiling...

And I have always been a believer that one person does make a difference

So I'm taking a deep breath for so many reasons this week right now...

And I'm pressing on just as we are supposed to do ~

I'm ready for a wonderful weekend ahead

I'd say have a latte with me everyone to start it off you know...

...but I've already had two "big" glasses of coffee...

And I have a feeling one more may put me over the edge you know...because honestly sometimes I think the coffee maker cup size is a lot smaller than what I consider a cup of coffee :)

I prefer my measuring when it comes to coffee ~ going by the size of one of my mugs rather than the coffee maker...

it sounds better to say

I've had two cups of coffee rather than maybe 3 1/2 to 4 cups, right?

this is one of those mornings I almost didn't want to get out of bed...and as Bobby got out of bed this morning...I asked...

more than once...

can you work from home today????...

by the way...he doesn't ever work from home...I think just a couple of times when sick perhaps...

I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask

you never know what you may be surprised with...

we've decided to find a new recipe this weekend and cook together... you see I cook to use the least amount of dishes possible...hubby doesn't...should be fun with a lot of laughs don't you think?

And what a pretty view from that table...I was thinking so!!

just a note...I wasn't using this post to advertise what I do at all...or share so that you would ask...I just wanted to share that it felt great to help make a difference :) xoxoxoxox

so it's not really an intricate recipe but for the moments you don't have a lot of time nor energy try:

whole wheat tortilla
gardenburger veggie patty
fresh spinach leaves
mango salsa
a sprinkle of cheese

these wraps are the bomb diggedy and not mean to the gut :)
