I made some serious blog progress this morning. I created three new pages that will be posted once I have drop down menus in place on the blog!
This may seem like nothin’, but I assure it’s no small feat when you’re making a page that requires finding a bazillion old posts on your blog. It’s a lot of sifting and searching. I wish I would’ve been more organized when I started blogging. If you’re a new blogger, please utilize tags on your pages. (You may see all of my tag categories in the right-hand column of my blog under “PBF by Category.”) Tags make it so much easier to find posts that belong together. I only wish I would’ve used them sooner!
Break for Errands
Eventually my eyes started to cross from staring at the computer screen for so long that I decided to take a breather and get out of the house to run some errands, including getting my bridesmaid dress altered for my friend Leah’s wedding next Saturday. Once I left the alterations shop, I headed to Whole Foods thinking I would buy all of the necessary ingredients to make the homemade pesto sauce Jenna posted earlier this week.
As I started gathering the ingredients, I began mentally calculating the total cost of making the pesto. Since I didn’t have any of the ingredients at home already, I was buying everything that the recipe called for and that made the price creep up to more than $15 ($8 fresh parmesan cheese, $6 white miso, $3 panko breadcrumbs, etc.). I abandoned my pesto plans and left with two $1 packs of seaweed snacks and some nutritional yeast from the bulk bins. (Seriously, what do you do with nutritional yeast? I remembered seeing it on blogs before and figured I would buy a little and figure it out later.)
After my Whole Foods adventures, I drove home and made a pit stop at Barnes & Nobel to pick up a book Ryan and I are planning to start reading together. (Yes, we read together. We’re funky.)
While there, I got sidetracked by some puppy books near the checkout counter.
Whenever I see dog books, I have a habit of flipping through them to see if they have a section dedicated to vizslas.
I’d say about 20 percent of dog books actually mention Sadie’s breed (usually only the dog encyclopedias or complete guide to dog breeds books do), so I wasn’t surprised when this particular book neglected vizslas as well.
At least they included another one of my loves:
Don’t you think Sadie and a little French bulldog would make the most adorable duo?
While in the check out line, I also saw this book that I think would make my mom cry:
Did anyone else read Pat the Bunny when they were little? Such a sweet and innocent book! Not sure how I feel about Pat the Zombie. (Not good.)
When I arrived back at home, it was lunchtime, though I wasn’t particularly starving. My afternoon snack did a good job of fending off my hunger, I guess.
I worked for a little bit before eventually throwing together a yummy lunch using leftovers from earlier this week.
I used leftover pulled buffalo chicken to make chicken salad by combining the chicken, light Miracle Whip and sweet corn. I placed the chicken salad on top of a hot dog bun and served it with a side of the seaweed snacks I purchased at Whole Foods and some Babybel cheese.
Not a bad little lunch!
Off to wrap things up for the week on the work front. Hooray for Fourth of July weekend!!! And Happy Canada Day!
