And just like that we’re mere days away from Thanksgiving 2018! How it happened I can’t say because it’s been a busy few weeks around here.
I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of Thanksgiving food (#realness), but I do enjoy the time off and the stillness that’s part of the day. Last year’s Thanksgiving was notable for one main reason – I had an emergency appendectomy two days after! It seems like such a long time ago, and I’m thankful for a quick healing!
A few weeks ago I was sent a sample of Totally Egg in the Chocolate and Vanilla flavors and all I have to say is YUM. I’ve been looking for protein shakes that don’t have a ton of hard to pronounce ingredients and artificial sweeteners, and these only have six ingredients total. They’re stevia-sweetened and truly delicious – I have to admit I got the shakes having them on an empty stomach, but I did mix them with hydrated chia seeds for a snack and both flavors are DELICIOUS! The vanilla tastes like cake batter, and I’m definitely placing an order. I also blended them with my coffee and got the most delightful foam – kinda like a latte!
Speaking of Amazon orders, I have to blame an ad on Facebook for my recent purchase of this $20 pencil dress. I haven’t purchased too many clothing items on Amazon so I had my doubts, plus some of the reviews had me lowering my expectations. The sizing is a bit strange – I entered in my size and ended up receiving a large instead of the size! Also, the color isn’t exactly what’s pictured, either. Oh, Amazon! The dress is actually fabulous and I totally just ordered another one in black. I LOVE the style of this dress and for the price it’s a winner. There’s a 5% coupon in the listing which worked on my first purchase, but not the second.
Now, on to a look at the week behind us on Painted Ladies.
