Crazy, yet refreshed

Oh, how I feel so very much better today!  And I'm going to enjoy it for as long as possible! What do I attribute this to:

*volunteering was particularly awesome this week
*the sun was out
*uber gave my sister and I a rose!

*yoga helped, as well as the stories and thoughts shared there.  I did bruise my chin attempting a chin stand & I loved it.
*i made two new friends this weekend - one at the gym, one at a coffee shop
*a couple dates
*celebrated two friends birthdays

*high quality friend catch-up time at a wedding.  As well as meeting new ones too!  One of the ladies at our table is from Barnhart and went to SEMO.  What's the first thing I asked?  Did you participate in the gum tree?  She enjoyed it.  I remember when I visited my friend Jess at SEMO freshman year I made her participate and said it was a rite of passage (even though I never heard of it until she told me ;)

I'm exhausted.  

And now I'm in North Carolina for the week and I got to watch the olympics on the plane for free.  I'm going to try my very best to hang on to these good vibes for as long as possible.  I mean, does anyone else feel like the work week is just too long?
And to wrap up Valentine's Day weekend, I'm still obsessed with this project...

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…

5 Year Journal - Again

I know I've mentioned my 5 year journal here before, but now that I'm in my second year and everyday I get to look back at what I did that day last year I can't tell you how much I love it.  And I imagine I will love it more and more as the years go on.  I'm already dreaming of year 5!  

It takes a maximum of 5 minutes to jot down a few notes from the day and then you move on.

I have this one.  (I'm pretty sure it was more than $12 when my grandma got it for me so that looks like a steal.)
But this one looks amazing!
