Vegetable Fried Rice

Well….the plague is finally starting to subside.  And by subside I mean I am slowly starting to get my energy back, the coughing has decreased, and I’m only down to about 5 cough drops a day (as opposed to an entire bag).

Hey, I’ll take that as a win. 

I can honestly say that I haven’t been this sick in a very long time.  Which had me thinking…perhaps my body is trying to tell me something.  Like I’m overdoing it.  I’ve been going through some emotional stress (something I’ll eventually share) and working 3 physically demanding jobs, all while trying to spend time with Bryan and the pups, as well as by myself.

Ya know, me time they call it.

Zucchini Cakes

Let me start with my good news!

No, I’m NOT pregnant…and no, I’m NOT getting married…

The good news is, with the help of Bryan and the girls at work, I have successfully completed my Mayngo Mission.  That’s right y’all, Mayngo Madness has finally subsided.  Our tree has stopped producing fruit and we have managed to eat almost every mango from it – aside from the few that the squirrels got to first.

Darn rodents.

I’ve still got that Mango Tropical Feeling

Plus, I still have about 7 mangoes to eat before they shrivel up into rotten oblivion.

The good news is, Bryan is home (yippee!) to help me on Mandy’s Mango Consumption Mission.  And more good news is that I made a kick-ass smoothie that I know will have me well on my way to conquering this ongoing mango journey.

I fall in love with fruit smoothies more and more every day.

Sea Turtles & My New Favorite (Simple) Way to Make Rice

I am exhausted. But in a good way.

A good exhausted if you will…

I briefly mentioned that I recently started monitoring sea turtle nests – I walk the beach and record sea turtle crawls and nests for a sea turtle monitoring program. I’ve only been doing it for a few weeks now and I’m already loving every second of it…

Minus getting up at 5am. Okay, 5:09 am if you count my snooze button.  Once I’m awake and on the beach, reality sets in and the 5am wake up call quickly vanishes.

What I Ate: Day 1

HELLLLLOOOOO!
Happy Sunday.  Boy does it feel good to talk to you.  This may sound silly but I miss y’all when I go a few days without talking to you.  It also doesn’t help that Bryan is still gone…

Perhaps I’m going a little cuckoo?

Don’t worry, he gets back in 8 days.  But until then…you’re stuck with me. Mwhahahahha.
