Hello guys and dolls! :)
This morning I had to wake up a little earlier than usual. And what better way to start the day than with Waffle French Toast?! Yes, you
heard read that correctly.
I used a Van's Whole Grain Waffle and gave it a nice little toast. Then, and that's a big 'then', I had the beautiful epiphany of making it into a French Toast. *gasp with hand on mouth*
I dipped it in a mixture of egg, almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and 1 tsp of brown sugar. Afterward, I proceeded to grill it in a skillet, along with egg mixture dipped-bananas until they were nicely caramelized.
This morning, my friend Emily and I drove up to LAX to pick up our friend Susan. She just came back from a crisis relief mission in Japan! I think that deserves a Hallelujah, no?
Lo and behold, not to my surprise, I totally made a mistake and hurried out the door an hour earlier than I was supposed to. You see, I have been quite absent minded lately, and perhaps it's because that "time of the month" is nearing. I apologize for the TMI hehe.
But as I always say; God always brings good out of our mistakes if we let Him! :D
Turns out that Susan made a mistake as well, as she arrived an hour earlier. Oh, the irony! After dropping Susan and her 2 new friends at her house, we needed to jump her car because it somehow broke down during her absence.
It seemed like a hopeless situation because her car was deep into the driveway and I had no way of getting in there with my car. Not only that, but her brakes were completely locked! Uh-oh.
After countless of attempts to start up her car, Emily suggested that I try starting it up one more time. We prayed that God would provide a miracle. To his glory, a miracle happened and the car is now working!
Needless to say, it was quite a busy, sunny, and adventurous day. I don't think life can ever be boring if we keep this up, guys. :P
I also believe that everything can be put into a different perspective. It's not about how our minds and hearts initially respond, but more importantly, it is about how we control our thoughts and emotions to specific situations. For example, it's not a bad thing to be sad! However, it can become poisonous to our emotions if we let it take over our whole being. Rant over.
Emily and I were naturally ravenous after that adventure, so we ate together at a Japanese Teriyaki spot. When I came home, I felt pooped! But in a good way.
Not long after, I munched on this amazing pita chip!! Oh my goodness. I know I sound like a fanatic (which I probably am), but I utterly love Stacy's pita chips. When I saw this Gingerbread flavor the other day, I knew that I had to give it a try. It tastes like real gingerbread men too, only without the men.
Listen to Your Body's Pleas
Today was a good example of how wonderful it can be when I listen to my body.
I have to say that one thing I really dislike is taking naps. Yup, I've just never been a 'napper'. After taking care of some errands, I itched to go out for a run, but my mind and body were telling me that I needed to at least lie down.
Sure enough, I lay down "just for a few minutes." And those minutes turned into 2 hours!! Whoa....But I feel so much better and who knows--perhaps I prevented a potential cold by letting my body rest.
I was also craving some natural juice, and so I went ahead and made a carrot, orange, ginger, broccoli, and fennel juice.
*Greg, this means some yummy juice is coming along your way muahaha!*
So please, please guys....Listen to your body's pleas...
And your heart will thank you.
I truly want to live my life in simplicity, just the way that it was intended to be. When I feel a certain need, I want to cater to it, but without letting it dominate my life.
Wedding Prep Update:
In a few days, Greg and I will have our pictures taken to make Save-the-Dates!
