Friday was a fun day! After work, we decided to go and watch the Kindred girls basketball team play against Oak Grove. It was a fun game to watch. I always enjoy watching basketball. :) They won by the way! We also attempted to drive by a house we were interested near Kindred. However, it was dark and we found it...but we couldn't really see it. It's on the river and kind of in the trees. Beautiful home though & it seemed like a nice neighborhood in the dark. I could see myself living there someday. ;) Ya know... starting a family and stuff. muahaha Then we went home and I was super tired so I actually went to bed right away.

Saturday was a nice & relaxing day for the most part. Justin went with one of his friends out of town and Matthew & I hung out. We played lots of Spiderman and we dressed nice n warm and he rode his bike in the garage and Josie ran around playing with a ping pong ball. Then when she got cold, she would lay in the bike trailer. :)

Then we happened to come across something in the garage that Matthew was VERY excited about! A HOCKEY HELMET! lol so we had to take it upstairs!

He wore that for quite a while. Then it was nap time and Justin came home and we hung out and played some hockey and video games. We all ended up going to bed pretty early. I was in bed by 8 and fell asleep faster than I have in a LONG time! Then... I woke up at about 3 am after having a bad dream (apparently my dream catcher isn't working) and couldn't fall asleep since I'm used to getting about 6 hours of sleep, my body thought it was time to wake up. But eventually I did fall back asleep until Matthew woke up at 7 and Justin went to plow some snow!


Breakfast: protein pancake with almond butter & strawberries
Lunch: turkey and cheese sandwich  on Ezekiel bread, cottage cheese & carrots
Snack: 2 rice cakes with Planters energy pb
Dinner: broiled tilapia with quinoa, peppers, onions & carrots
Snack: 2 pumpkin protein bars, 1 honey almond protein crisp - see recipe below

Exercise: rest

We hung out in the morning and watched Planet 51 and played hide & go seek. We also went in the garage and he rode his bike for a little while again and I even took out the bean bag toss & practices up for lake season!!! ;) Then we went upstairs and had some lunch before taking a long nap. We both slept from 1:30 to 5!!!! :/ YIKES! I didn't think that I'd sleep that long & I can't believe that he did either. I guess we were tired. Then we woke up and had some dinner and Daddy came with the plow pickup to take him to his mom's friends house. His mom didn't come to Fargo since the roads were bad. It's been pretty crazy weather here! I'm thinking that I'll most likely have a snow day tomorrow. I have about a 2 foot drift in front of my garage and its still snowing....and Justin said that since there is a no travel advisory out, they aren't going to plow the apartments anytime soon. We shall see. I'm rooting for a SNOW DAY! :D I had some yummy tilapia for dinner and then I baked my turkey meatloaf muffins for the week and also made a new recipe!! Check it out! They're my kind of rice krispie bars!

Honey Almond Protein Crisp


  • 3 cups Nature's Path Crispy Rice
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds
  • 1/2 cup Xylitol brown sugar (I skipped this ingredient)
  • 3/4 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/2 cup honey

  1. Pour the crispy rice, protein powder, whole oats and crushed almonds into a large bowl and shake gently. Avoid stirring, to keep the protein powder from settling on the bottom.
  2. In a small glass bowl, combine the brown sugar, almond butter, and honey, and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring until combined.
  3. Add the almond butter mixture to the crispy rice mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until every piece is coated.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9x13 Pyrex dish, or use cookie cutter shapes as molds, and fill with the mixture, pressing firmly into place. Place the 9x13 Pyrex dish in the freezer for at least one hour. Allow the crisp to soften a bit before cutting the squares, or simply break off pieces with your hands. (If using cookie cutters, be sure to remove them before putting the crisp in the freezer.)
  5. Store in the freezer.
