Weekly ‘wine’ down: A potato, a fat, and a reminder

Wine? What’s that? It’s been so long!
I didn’t realize that my juicing experiment didn’t include the juicing of grapes? šŸ™‚
Jk-But, I will be looking forward to that one glass of red wine that I intend to thoroughly enjoy come Friday evening.

In the meantime, let’s highlight some of our favs from the internet this week:

WARNING: This post could be all about food and the foods I’m currently craving…since, you know, I haven’t had a lot of solids all week!


To eat:

Do you love avocados? I do and I’ve been eating the heck out of them this week (one/ day)!
Don’t be worried about the fats. They are good for you fats.
This may look funny…eggs, with whole wheat toast and avocado…but, trust me, it’s delicious!
Plus, you get heathy fats, protein from eggs and avacado, whole grains, and enough carbs to carry you through mid-morning!
Simply a perfect start to the morning.

This is a really great, and looks easy, idea for homemade Christmas gifts!
Creative, homemade gifts are the best to receive. It means you put some thought, effort and time into it.
Will you be making any homemade gifts this season?



To crave:
I’m craving sweet potatoes!
That’s not a bad thing, right?
These don’t look the healthiest butĀ alongsideĀ some brocoli and chicken or fish they could surely fit the bill of a perfect meal!
Or, they could be that side you are looking for Thanksgiving!
Any time of the day…yummo!
Let me know if you try them out….before me.:)

To think about:

Isn’t this the truth?
I was reminded of this quote just this week when a friend of ours passed away unexpectedly…just one evening after dinner….at age 50!
So young. So much left to do and live.
I can only imagine the heartache his parents, siblings, children, and dear friends are facing this week.
Death…it’s so final.
So eternal.
So gone….forever.
You don’t get that chance to re-do…do the things you missed out on…undo the things you did wrong….
You really have justĀ a short time here on earth….who know’s how long or short.
Make the most of this time…and remember this quote.

Leuk idee om er een originele muursticker van te maken door www.muurtekstenonline.nl. In diverse maten en kleuren.

Sorry to get so philosophical on you….we just all need to be reminded of this every once in a while.

Here’s to a great weekend friends!

I’ll be back on Monday with my juicingĀ experiment final wrap up! I know you are on pins and needles in anticipation…..

In the meantime…enjoy this picture of our 2014 People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive!

Chris Hemsworth

(Nice necklace, btw! …..Made you look)
I think the media finally got something right!!!!!
Word was this was who originally was thought to play Christian Grey in the book turned movieĀ 50 Shades of Grey!
He would have been perfect!!! Grrrr……

That’s better looking than those sweet potatoes up there…..nah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
