Aside

Well, Hello Mon…

Well, Hello Monday!

I don’t know why I’m so cheery. I’m truly not happy to see you. I mean I’m thanking God I have seen you, but I wish the weekend would have lasted a bit longer! I have to tell you some of the cool things I’ve been up to!

I’ve added 2 beautiful bowls to my kitchen items, thanks to those talented kids within our program who made bowls to be auctioned off to raise awareness for Hunger Relief and raise money for our organization!

Friday I got to relax a bit, then Saturday I had a very good workout doing Zumba! I pushed myself and though I craved everything at IHOP, I managed to talk myself into going home and making 2 scrambled eggs with light cheese and a little bit of honey ham. I was trying to be satisfied but not all the way full because I knew my husband would want to take his friends out to dinner later, and boy was THAT GOOD!

Pasta Copelands

A new favorite dish of mine from Copeland’s restaurant! It consists of tender shrimp, sautéed with garlic mushrooms and fresh herbs over angel hair pasta. I got a side of pirogue sauce (similar to Alfredo) to give it a bit of additional flavor and WOW! It was awesome! Combine that with good friends sharing an appetizer, what more could you ask for? I’m so glad I decided to go with light eating to allow myself to go a bit overboard for an early dinner! That’s another key factor here, I knew I wanted to go out and “cheat” a bit, so dinner was at 4 instead of later since the dish was so heavy! It was worth every last drop! I love how great the food is and the atmosphere at Copelands! Not to mention, we always get this wonderful waiter named Marcus, who simply knows how to give the best service and advice when it comes to picking a dish! There is a reason I love that place so much!

Sunday morning, my hubby cooked a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and sausage. While he experimented with the pancakes (yeah I didn’t care for them too much lol), I enjoyed the eggs and sausage. He had to work the afternoon and night of Easter, so I did spend quite some time by myself, but my lovely student, Peter, went and ate dinner with me so I wouldn’t have to be by myself:) I also had some great friends who shared messages with me, and text me so I wouldn’t be completely lonely (Thanks Tiara and Monique 🙂 I realized Holidays are very important to me, and that is why I want to spend them with the people that I love most 🙂

Well that’s it for now!

I’m working on something pretty neat right now. Ill share it with you all in a few days!!!

Until Next Time, Much Love 🙂

Mrs. SPJ 🙂
