Happy Thursday! Super excited it’s Thursday because that means I have tomorrow off! Wahooo! I have so much annual leave built up I have had to take Fridays off for a wee bit now. It has been awesome. The only problem? I have NO idea how I am going to go back to working a full work week! I know, I have such horrible problems!
So, I started to write about things that make me happy on Thursdays but I think it’s been a bit since I have actually done an installment. Here we go!
1. I slept like a ROCK last night!
I had put away all of my winter bedding when the temps were unseasonably warm. But then it got COLD at night this week. I thought I could just tough it out but finally I added two extra blankets and last night I didn’t wake up freezing my nookies off! Amazing! I felt so much better today – awesome what a great night sleep can do.
2. My biggest goal today was to make 1 smart decision. Yes, I hold myself to a very high standard. Success! I actually made a number of smart decisions so goal met and exceeded! I LOVE exceeding my goals :)
3. Really cool people commenting on my blog and giving me fantastic dating advice! The gist of the advice from the group is to just be myself and stop being a freak. I may have ad-libbed that last part about the freak but I think it was implied. But a “hey Amy, get out of your head” reminder is good and at times needed! Thanks all!
4. Yummy potato casserole! This has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. I made it on Easter and get to enjoy leftovers the whole week. It’s super easy-peasy and I think of it as comfort food. Here is the recipe:
1 pkg of cubed frozen hash browns
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of sour cream (I use light)
1 soup can full of milk
1 pkg of sharp cheddar – shredded
Mix the sour cream, soup and milk together in a bowl. Put the potatoes in a 9×13 pan and then mix the wet ingredients with the potatoes. Cook for 45 mins at 325-350. Then sprinkle the cheese on and cook for 15 minutes more.
*This also used to call for a half a stick of butter but we cut it out and it still tastes great. Sometimes my dad adds a little bit more sour cream and milk but I didn’t and it still tasted awesome!
5. Angry peeps!
These little guys jumped right out to me with their angry lil’ faces! I actually think peeps are fairly disgusting and haven’t eaten one in about 25 years. Nevertheless, I had to buy them for work since my staff wants to make Peep S’mores. Of course this sounds gross but it will be entertaining!
Well, those are my happy things for the day! Tomorrow I am going to do my taxes (yep, I have turned procrastination into an art form), tour two different gyms – my “bat cave” gym turned out to be a bust and go for a run. Hope to have a good update for y’all!
