Awkward & Awesome Thursday

-I bought a deep fryer last month and haven't blogged about. I need to make some more beer battered fish. Then I'll blog about it.
-Our budget. Ouch. We did a mid-year review. Not doing as well as we planned mostly due to my habit of eating out for lunch. No more. I'm on week 2 of bringing my own lunch. I could use some ideas of what to bring for lunch. I have a fridge, a microwave, and a toaster at work. I despise sandwiches and leftovers. I'm trying to avoid frozen dinners. Salads will only get me so far. Help!

-Carly Rae Jepsen's album. I love Call Me Maybe and I sing it at the top of my lungs (when I'm home alone). 
But I also like her cover of Both Sides Now orginally done by Joni Mitchell:
-This video:
Always makes me smile.
-It was warm enough yesterday to wear one of  my new dresses!
-Copper River salmon was $9/lb when you bought the whole fish. Woot! I have 4 lbs of salmon in my freezer. The nice fishmonger even filleted it for me!

What's awesome and awkward for you this week?


  1. Oh I bet you have nice salmon up in your area. No water near us...!

    I love this little meme though I think I'm definitely more awkward than awesome most of the time. Ha!! Case in point? The other day I was having a cup of coffee in the afternoon...something I NEVER do...and I spilled all over my white button up shirt. Thank goodness it was 3:30.

    No help with lunches. I can eat the same thing every single day. Usually leftovers or something frozen.

  2. For lunch I like soup with crackers and cheese or celery with peanut butter or apples. Anything more than that and I fall asleep. We have a BBQ at work and every once in a while we do steak!

  3. Budgets are so hard to keep on track sometimes. I have actually enjoyed packing my lunch for work and only fell off the wagon every once in a while!!


Shiny! I love comments.
