Wow, I feel like I have had a LONG weekend since I am just now getting back to an entry this morning. Is it Saturday? My days feel all turned around!
Good news to report! After having gone almost all summer without singing I finally got to sing this past Sunday at a local church. I had noticed, since being pregnant, that my breath support is different or rather it takes more effort to support. I get out of breath more easily singing the hymns at church so when I was asked to sing this past Sunday I was a bit hesitant. I know, I know. I was not paralyzed, but I wanted to be able to sing with just as good technique as before being pregnant.
I loved singing! It had lovely high notes and I had no trouble breathing or keeping it supported. I was just sweating because it seemed like I was doing a mini workout. GO figure! Ha ha ha. I sing another solo this coming Sunday so I am looking forward to it. How about exposing your little one to music? This is a great way! 🙂
We returned from a mini business trip to Pennsylvania last night. I decided last minute to accompany my husband on an 8 hour road trip to Penn State where he was presenting a topic at a music conference. Let me tell you how I no longer can do road trips. We stopped every 2 hours for stretch / potty breaks and I also switched from lying in the back seat with pillows to sitting up front with Ryan. All in all it was ok until the way back last night. I am glad I went but it is a total new ball game.
I came home to open a nice gift from my MIL. How cute are these? I could not keep from holding them up and imagining my little girl in them….sigh…she will be here soon.
Okay so before we get to the recipe of the day I want to announce the immersion blender winner. Here is what random.org picked.
Carol C. @gram122 won the immerson blender! Please contact me as soon as you can! Thank you all for your yummy soup recipes. I can’t wait to try them starting this fall!!
When I woke up this morning I craved blueberries so I decided to make a smoothie. Not only did I want a smoothie but I wanted oatmeal too. I find that breakfast has become the most important meal because it is when I most feel like cooking and most feel like eating. How about that?
This is a 2-in-1 breakfast. You can have the smoothie by itself or you can have half the smoothie and blueberry smoothie oatmeal.
I had a So Delicious Coconut Greek-style yogurt left to try from my samples and decided to add it to my smoothie. Did you know it has 6 different types of live cultures? Yum! I decided to try a spoonful before adding it to the smoothie and boy was it creamy!
