Thank you for all the votes! Operation Beautiful is officially in the Top 10 for the Positivity Awards. No matter what, Iâ€™ll get a minimum of $2,500 to donate to Girls on the Run â€“ all because of your votes. Yayyy!
During the awards ceremony at a John Tesh (I freaking LOVE him) concert in mid-December, Iâ€™ll find out if we won the grand prize. If so â€“ 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 Jerryâ€™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 wasnâ€™t crazy about it, and if he doesnâ€™t like it, most people will not. I like it, though!
And a peanut butter sandwich:
As mentioned, I pased by Ben and Jerryâ€™s and stopped in for dessert.
Best. Flavor. Ever.
A good day, indeed!
Iâ€™ll leave you with this cute photograph. James has officially taken this chair over. No one else sits in it.
