Day 51- February 20

Day 51 = Love Your Pet Day & Muffin Day!

Those are two things I can easily celebrate.

I had special permission to bring Duncan to school with me today which made it possible for me to love Duncan all day long!
The director of the program thought he was a pig which wasn’t that crazy a mistake if you’ve ever heard him make his oink-like sounds. He made his rounds sitting on everyone’s laps and brought everyone lots of joy and snorts.

I missed old Herm today – I love him so much too, he’s just not as personable or as portable as his younger brother Dunc.

This is Herman when he was just a little puppy – we had him about one day at this point. So cute.

When I got home from school, I got to work on my go-to muffin recipe. It’s really simple, paleo friendly and I know it by heart!!

You will need:

  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • teaspoon of cinnamon

mixed all of it together, distribute into muffin pan then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes and viola, muffins.

Ate a few of these and got to work on the 5000 assignments I have due all at once next week.

Tomorrow! Sticky Bun Day! Wahoo!

 

 

Day 50 – February 19

Holy McMoly ! Day 50 of Celebrating Every Day Literally!!

What a trip.

Sunday was National Chocolate Mint Day. This felt a little trite given that Peppermint Patty Day was a 8 days ago. But it was also an easy out, because I was still tired as all hell from working a job like a real person.

Christina and I lived large today. We decided to go shopping and do brunch. I spent every cent of my hard earned money on a new snowboarding jacket, snowboarding goggles, helmet and mitts, as well as a new highlighter to make my cheekbones glow like unicorn fur.
We also had brunch at this ridiculously cute cafe in North Vancouver called Raglan’s Bistro and it was siiiiick.  I had this eggs Benedict concoction called Lowrider, which had chipotle sour cream and guacamole and it was hands down the tastiest thing I have eaten in a long time.  And we had some badass cocktails

We got home late afternoon and decided to recelebrate National Drink Wine Day because we didn’t feel like we gave it our all yesterday. So we put away our new purchases, put on our onesies, cracked open a few bottles and watched Planet Earth… nearly forgetting to celebrate National Chocolate Mint Day.

Luckily there were a few peppermint patties leftover in the fridge so I was able to indulge with little effort.

Day 49 – February 18

National Drink Wine Day!!!

I was super super super super super super tired from being too old to be a bartender up till all hours dealing with booze bags but I managed to pull myself together to go to a  get together with a few friends.
In honour of the day I drowsily knocked back about half a bottle of wine and gave a bottle of prosecco to the hostess. Wine wine wine
