The weekend is over, and another Marvelous In My Monday is upon is. I don’t know about y’all, but we had a nice relaxing weekend over here. I may or may not of eaten a bit unhealthy too :-X Hey a slice of pizza + chips & salsa won’t kill me right???
Marvelous… that I found these gems @ the grocery store yesterday. This ONE bag may of cost me $9.00, but after all my complaining about the lack of pumpkin anything over here how could I pass them up? You better believe I broke the bag open the second we stepped out of the store. My honest thought: I was kind of disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, they are good, but not something I can eat a lot of at once (I guess that could be a good thing??).
Marvelous… even though both the Auburn Tigers & Green Bay Packers lost this weekend, at least Penn State won!! After all these players have been through in regards to the whole Sandusky trial, they deserve everything they’ve worked for and every winning game.
Marvelous… We are now all caught up on Sons of Anarchy. Since the show isn’t televised until so late (darn time difference), we hadn’t been able to catch any episode so far this season. Thank gosh for iTunes though! I already wish it were Tuesday!! For all you watchers out there, don’t you hate how after every episode it leaves you wanting more??
Marvelous… I finally remembered to stretch after my 9 mile run this morning. This may sound stupid to some, but lately I’ve been slacking. My legs felt it all weekend & had no problem showing me their disappointment. I felt bad, at one point the hubs wanted to go out for a little walk and I had to turn him down. I know that sounds so mean, but ugh my legs just wanted to relax!!
Marvelous… The Zucchini Banana Cookies I made on Friday! Sorry for teasing y’all with the pictures all weekend, but like I promised you.. here’s the recipe:

Marvelous… All the support and prayers I’ve received from you in regards to my OBGYN appointment on Friday. Unfortunately, I don’t have too much to share with y’all. The husband and I had misunderstood the doctor and went back 5 days too early (darn accents). The hardest thing about the visit though was hearing that I’m most likely not producing eggs. Yes I may have realized that, but just hearing it… it was hard to digest. We’ll go back on Thursday and hopefully find out more. Fingers crossed 🙂
Marvelous… this respond from my mom on facebook:
Me: Just wanted to tell you thanks for your support through this whole health situation. love you mommy
My Mom: Honey..it’s so funny I was up during the night and I was thinking about this too….this will all work out. I am glad you are finding out all of this now while you are still so young. The medical field is amazing these days and they find new answers to things every minute. You will see…..you will have the answers you need in no time and will be cuddling with your twins…triplets…lol, in no time! I love you honey!
