Sunflower Type of Day


I had a nice slow start to the day and got to sleep until 7 AM. I actually got a decent amount of sleep and I generally feel okay when Brielle gives me just one 3-hour block of sleep. Woo-hoo! She then usually goes on two hour blocks, which is not that bad.

I made the same breakfast as yesterday, eggs, ham and cheese with a tortilla and some iced coffee. I also finished the remaining half of the pineapple empanada. Yum yum!

Brielle and I went on an errand run. We had to go to post office, and that was an adventure in itself. I had to carry her stroller along with a big box, I was quite the funny site. Luckily, another mom saw me in the parking lot and helped me right along. Thanks random mom!

We then headed to Walmart to return some items and re-stock that pantry with some of the items I had to throw out yesterday. I made sure to buy the smaller containers or tried to buy only quantities I knew I was going to use.

Brielle actually woke up hungry during the Walmart outing, but luckily enough the lady at the dressing rooms let me slip in to one of the rooms and feed her. Phew!


After another stop at Hobby Lobby, we finally made it home and I got a chance to make myself a yummy salad. Inspired by a Julie from PBFinger's recommendation, I actually thought about buying that salad dressing while at Walmart.  However, after looking at the ingredient list I decided to try to make my own version of it and it actually turned out pretty good. Here are my ingredients:

  • 50 ml seasoned rice vinegar
  • 100 ml canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 T sesame seeds
  • 1 T agave nectar (optional, to taste)
Oh so good :)

I also had a cup of grapes & strawberries in my favorite sunflower cup. Who knew I loved sunflowers?

I think the little one is calling again!
