Happy Friday! Finally I feel 100% like myself again! Wednesday was the turn around day and actually a pretty stellar day all around regardless. I had the house to myself, so after my first real strength workout in a week, I set up my “work station-base” in the kitchen, found some good 70s station on Spotify, spent the morning reading blogs and drinking coffee, and then continued to jam out to 70s music while creating a new awesome recipe that became part of an awesome dinner I made for the family. Gotta say, it was so needed and so welcome. I’m now looking forward to a GOOD weekend.
I hope your week was awesome, or at least had some great high points! This Sunday is Father’s Day, so of course I had to give a shot-out to my dad and all the other dads out there! Grill up something good and make the big man proud! Maybe some fancy chicken burgers, some grilled plantains, beet fries, or spicy sweet potato fries, and homemade BBQ sauce or ketchup!
Monday: Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce

Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
The truth about really finding purpose!
Are you brave enough?
Such a strong young woman!
Are you your own roadblock?
We won’t always get what we’re expecting.
If you want to cry.
This is so true! Really!
These are so wonderful! Great read!
Take yourself out!
The girls just made exercising at home that much easier!
If you’re awesome and take the time to roll, do it right!
Your gut health is so important!
Mine is #14!
Haha! Isn’t this so accurate!?
Love number 7! That’s what I always tell people to do!
Think it took us long enough?
Haha, but the ones we eat are good….very good 😉
My word, this is so sadly the biggest truth.
Reading as therapy? I think so!
Woh, controversy 😉
Blogging, Social Media, Tech & Photography:
It’s always on my mind…some aspect of it at least!
Who are you with? I’m with Hostgater and have no complaints!
It happens to the best of us.
Do you work for yourself?

Chocolate Earl Grey Shake. Sounds like such an awesome combo!
Cantaloupe Coconut Lime Sorbet. This just sounds so beyond cool and refreshing!
Thai Chickpea Veggie Pizza. I’d say Friday night pizza is going to happen!
Spicy Roasted Chickpeas with Lemon Tahini Dressing. Roasted chickpeas just got a whole lot better!
Thai Red Curry Bowl. I guess I’m having a Thai-craving week! This looks so good!
Spice Rubbed BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Salsa Rice Plate. I could eat this meal every day!
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Fudgesicles. Look at hat that cookie dough is made of! Can you say yum?
Summer Salmon Salad with Basil Vinaigrette. Okay, I could also eat this meal every day too! Why is good salmon so damn expensive still! It’s supposed to be in season right now!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Cherries! Finally, I got my hands on some cherries that were on sale <3 Summer goodness!
+ Regaining my health (and appetite!) I am even able to drink tea again. Seriously, tea was even making me nauseated! I hadn’t drunk it for days…just the thought killed me! Ugh!
+ I finished my first book of the summer (yea…slow) and started on the next! Kill Fee! I love Own Laukkanen!
+ And of course, I’m grateful for my daddy!
So tell me:
+ Are you planning anything special for Father’s Day?
+ What’s something embarrassing you do when you have the house to yourself? Sing really loud to music and jump around the house…while cooking and photographing. 😉
