Thank you for all the votes! Operation Beautiful is officially in the Top 10 for the Positivity Awards. No matter what, I’ll get a minimum of $2,500 to donate to Girls on the Run – all because of your votes. Yayyy!
During the awards ceremony at a John Tesh (I freaking LOVE him) concert in mid-December, I’ll find out if we won the grand prize. If so – we raised $10,00 for Girls through online votes. Thank you!!
I had a very exciting day overall. :) I think my balloon trick worked because I received excellent business news at 4 PM, had a nice walk with the Husband, and ate the very delicious Bonnaroo Buzz from Ben and Jerry’s for dessert. Ingredients for a wonderful afternoon, if you ask me.
Details of the day:
Dinner was a big bowl of thick homemade butternut squash soup.
To create it, I peeled and roasted a medium butternut squash at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. I also roasted 2 heads of broccoli and 1/4 a red onion. I then blended the roasted veggies and two cups of mushroom broth. I got two servings out of it.
It was gooood! Simple, too.
With leftover mushroom dressing. Which I may have to retract the recipe for. The Husband wasn’t crazy about it, and if he doesn’t like it, most people will not. I like it, though!
And a peanut butter sandwich:
As mentioned, I pased by Ben and Jerry’s and stopped in for dessert.
Best. Flavor. Ever.
A good day, indeed!
I’ll leave you with this cute photograph. James has officially taken this chair over. No one else sits in it.
Congrats on the award, i’ve been terrible with my reading & missed it but massive congrats!
