What I ate Wednesday: ย Birthday Edition ย 

Hey y’all! What a special day I have had. The Lord has blessed me with so many amazing people in my life. To me, the cool thing about a birthday is that you get to hear from them on this special day. I love that!! Makes my heart just plain happy. 

So breakfast… a special gluten free blueberry muffin from the famous Mason Dixon Bakery. And cold brew + almond milk. 

I got to work and had special office decor and surprises… talk about the works! They went for it with all of my favorite things. 

Lunch… Jason’s deli for the office lunch party (I mean meeting…). Gluten free California club with that delicious cookie. 

Snack was a chai tea latte with almond milk (thanks to Tripp’s Miss Carolyn!) and an RxBar. 

Nothing like a steak dinner + La Croix (a whole case thanks to Uncle Rob!) to end the day thanks to David ๐Ÿ™‚ 

And desssrt… a “flight” of gluten free cupcakes from Mason Dixon (thanks to David for this surprise!!). Plus the most amazing vanilla ice cream. No corners cut for this golden birthday. I didn’t know about this whole golden thing until recently. Only turn 29 on the 29th once ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

What a full heart I have going into this next year ๐Ÿ™‚ 

And to keep with the birthday theme… I wanted to do something special! I have 3 Beautycounter products that I want to gift to 3 people! The next 3 orders placed using THIS link before midnight tomorrow night (3/30) will get a full size product from me. As I get the order confirmations, I’ll personally email you and give you the product list to choose from and get it in the mail. That easy!! 

Talk about a good time to dip your toe into safer products ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Thanks for making my birthday SO special!! Tripp did his share and got us matching shirts from the Lady and Little shop on Etsy. 

And he was almost still for a picture lol! I plan to wear my Live Simply this weekend and will be sure to snap a picture of us ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha! 

Good night!! 

Tripp’s Plate Tuesday + Meal Idea

Happy Tuesday everyone! Tripp and I had a delicious dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

Ham roast + Tessemae’s ketchup, peas + ghee, beets and broccoli. So good!!

 And my plate looked the same ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here’s a really fast meal idea… chicken soup version 3783773 haha! 

Ingredients are listed above. Sautรฉ the veggies in a good fat (I did ghee and coconut oil) then add your liquid (gold). I did a jar of concentrated broth with a jar of water. Let this simmer until your veggies are to your liking. Serve with any or all of the following: white rice, chicken, spinach, drizzle of coconut cream (the solid part in the coconut milk can!). 

It can heal your heart and body in one big helping ๐Ÿ˜‰
