I have a chocolate chip cookie hangover.

I ate an entire avocado. It was delicious. Probably doesn’t help the hangover.

I actually did some cleaning, in attempts to ward off a similar disaster that I experienced last week.

I didn’t do any laundry. Typical.

I did this leg workout. Ouch.

I laughed about watching Mr. How Sweet do a workout video yesterday. Hysterical.

I still can’t decided what I’m making for dinner. What are you having?

I learned that I really need to take my camera with me because all I have are photos of food.

Is my grandpa’s birthday!

Isn’t he cute?! Doesn’t look a day over 25, right? He is such a wonderful man, and he and my grandma set such a fabulous example of love and compassion for all of us to follow. Can you leave him some birthday love below? Happy birthday Grandpa!

    Ah cookie hangovers… I think the only cure is more cookies. We are having baked chicken thighs and kale chips… maybe some other veggies and sweet potatoes of I have any energy after work:-)

    Happy Birthday to your Grandpa! I went and re-read the post about he and your Grandma’s relationship and it made me tear up..and then I read the comments and REALLY teared up..until I got to HIS comment and then the tears came out. You seem to be from a really wonderful family from everything I’ve read. I hope your Grandpa has a wonderful birthday. :)

    Will you be making him anything yummy?

    Happy Birthday Grandpa How Sweet!! I hope you’re have a very enjoyable day :-)

    I once made fun of my boyfriend after doing a Pilates video with me. He thought it looked so easy but afterward couldn’t move for half of the day!!

    For dinner tonight I made stromboli. The saltiness will nicely balance your sweet cookie indulgence. I make pizza dough, roll it out into a rectangle, then cover half of it with salami and mozzarella cheese. Roll it up (tuck in your corners), make slits to release steam, and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Take it out and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder, then back in the over for 5 more minutes. Let it rest so the cheese can settle a bit and… Done!

    Happy birthday Grandpa How Sweet! Great examples of loving, lasting relationships are hard to find and I’m thankful that my boyfriend and I have not only have our parents’ relationships (30 years his, 24 years mine) to look up to but my grandparents’ marriages at 52 and 55 years of forever love. Incredible.

    Happy Birthday Grandpa How Sweet! He looks so adorable in that picture! You’re lucky to have him :]

    I didn’t have a proper grandfather and I know I totally missed out on that experience growing up so continue to stay close to yours! I think the older you get, the more you need your grandparents to keep you grounded. I read the post about your grandparents’ relationship and it brought me to tears, especially his comment. You are truly blessed with what seems like an amazing family and it’s nice to see that you value your relationships as much as you do. Honestly, you’re a great role model :]
