Food Post - Healthy Eating

I have a lot of posts coming up with pics of some DIY stuff I've been up to! I've been sort of in a diy/craft slump... everything I've attempted has sort of fallen flat of my expectations, but I am gearing up for an entire craft room/office remodel so I hope to get my "mojo" back :).

But I had some healthy and delicious food today so I figured I'd do a little "what I ate today" post!

I started off the day with a kids organic z bar - that I forgot to take a picture of and a slice of cheese - classy I know, but it hit the spot ;).

This dinner was right on for what I was craving tonight! The salad was made up of spring mix, local organic strawberries, roasted garlic cloves, feta cheese, tomato and balsamic vinaigrette. Then I baked up 1/2 of a sweet potato and topped it with a tiny bit of chipotle hummus - I love the sweet/spicy combo!

For dessert I had this yummy concoction:

.....Fage Total 2% Greek yogurt topped with a tablespoon of chocolate chips, a teaspon of sliced almonds, and a tablespoon of cherry fruit butter - delish! And this little yogurt cup has 17 grams of protein alone which is awesome, since my day today was very unbalanced and low on protein all around!

I had a few other snacks throughout the day that I forgot to take pictures of - but this was mostly it. It was an odd eating day :).

Now I have to log off and go play with this little girl before bed -

Isn't she just the cutest?!?!

Garage Sale/Thrifty Finds

Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is having a Thrifty Treasures party - so head on over and check out all of the awesome things other great bloggers have found! This is my first time linking up to any sort of party, so I hope I do it the right way! :)

It was a slow garage sale weekend here due to the torrential downpours! Everything was flooded out and I only saw a few people braving the storm in their tents - so the husband and I headed to a few local thrift stores to check out what they had and came away with a few cute things!

$1.00 cheese platter - (not sure what I plan to do with it yet!!)$20.00 Wooden PB style chair - This is one of my favorite finds!! It's a super old, heavy chair stained in black that looks just like the pottery barn ones that retail for $399! They recently put on new casters so it rolls awesome and it's so comfy!

$2.00 - 2 Ball/Atlas jars. Aren't they cute?

.49 silver serving platter type thing
.49 old Ball Jar

$1.00 vintage metal card catalog
$18.00 old, white washed chest. This is another favorite find - the asking price was $25.00 but I snagged it for $18.00. I thought it was a bit pricey, but I loved the aged paint job so I figured the price was worth not to have to repaint it!

$4.00 Huge wooden frame with beach print. I'm not sure if I'm going to leave the print or paint over it with chalkboard paint to use in my craft room. The picture is pretty, but the quality is not that great.

That's it for me! I am still on the hunt for a great "sewing desk" for my craft room - hopefully with a little luck I'll be sharing that next time around!
