Hi friends!

I can not tell you how happy I am that my Crazy week is almost over!! At work today we started talking about our retreat that we are going on Sunday-Tuesday in Ojai and I got super excited. I seriously have some amazing perks to my job! We are actually hiring a head chef if you are interested :).

We had staff lunch today which is FREE, another great perk!

I made a nice chicken salad

and had two kinds of soup, a little Enchilada soup and a little Potato Soup!

For dessert I had some blue Jello Goodness! Not a huge fan of Jello but this one wasn’t too bad, I like fruit in my Jello :).

This morning I had the best Honest Food Bar, Almond Trail Mix!

I loved this flavor, the Almonds just took over my taste buds (in a good way). This was the perfect 200 calorie snack.


Today I want to ask for some Prayer for my family. If you have been reading my blog for a while you might remember the passing of my Uncle this time last year. My Uncle was very young (36(, and his death was very sudden. He left behind a wife, son(9), daughter (13). I ask that you pray for my Aunt and Cousins as they still are grieving for their amazing husband and father. Thank you friends.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

That's so sad about your uncle. That age is far too young to leave this world. I hope his family can stay strong.

I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

You do have a fantastic job and if I lived anywhere close to CA, I would definitely consider that chef position! :)

You and your family are espcially in my prayers this week. May you be comforted in knowing that your uncle lives with you in spirit. I hope that you are surrounded by overwhelming love this time of year.
Love you girl!
