Introducing…The Wizard of Oz

May 20, 2017

I spent the entire morning in bed on Friday and I loved it! I slept super crappy the night before and I knew I had some ZZZZ’s to catch up on, so I did. Once awake, I made a yummy cup of Frothy Coffee and crawled right back into bed to enjoy it.

I was on the computer all morning, but it was nice to stay in my pj’s for as long as possible. I ended up doing some housework in my pj’s too. I finally decided it was lunch time at around 1:30 and made myself a nice big plate of French Toast. It was rainy and blah out, Mike was working away from home today, and I was enjoying pj’s and bed head for as long as I could.

I left in the pouring rain at about 4:30 to go pick up the two oldest grand daughters (not sisters, but cousins). Char, the three year old, has a new baby brother and is feeling a little jealous and mom thought some time with Gigi might be a good idea. Char agreed. Amiyah came too! Amiyah just recently moved to Oklahoma but came back to visit the new baby. She has her own little stresses of moving away from her cousin (they basically shared a backyard) and some Gigi time seemed like a good idea for her too.

As I drove the girls back to our house (it’s about a 40 minute drive) we talked about all of the things that we would do for the evening and today. We talked about watching a movie last night. Amiyah is always eager to watch something that she has never seen, and we always seem to have some old Disney movies that she doesn’t yet know about. As I was thinking about movies, I remembered that we had The Wizard of Oz. I started talking about the movie and the characters. They seemed interested in the Wicked Witch. I started laughing like she laughs and saying in the high pitched screechy voice…”I’ll get you my pretty! And your little dog Toto too!” Then I would do her ridiculous laugh. 

These girls cracked up all the way home, not even knowing who the Wicked Witch was.

Last night, we watched The Wizard of Oz and they loved it.

Every time the Wicked Witch made her scary screetchy laugh, they’d say “Do it Gigi!”

Today, several ideas, but who knows what we’ll do. We might go say hi to my dad’s duck, Charlie.

Breakfast – 1 SP

Frothy Coffee and a Banana….in bed


Lunch – 7 SP

French Toast (5 SmartPoints for the toast) with warm Blueberries, Scrambled Egg Whites with Salsa.


After I took pictures (and a bite), I decided to add 1 tsp of Pure Maple Syrup and 1 tsp of Trader Joe’s Mixed Nut Butter.

I used 3 Egg Whites for the French Toast and I scrambled 4 Egg Whites for a side. 7 Egg Whites is only 1 SmartPoint! All Protein!


This would have been just a bit better with vanilla, but I completely forgot!

Snack – 4 SP

Chicken Salad, made just like the day before.

Rotisserie Chicken Breast, Avocado Oil Mayo, Grapes, Apples and Cucumbers with a little S & P.


Dinner – 18 SP

Un-Pictured Salmon, Salad and one Beer

I knew that I might get busy and forget to take pictures during the evening, but I did get this one.

I made the kids and Mike pizza’s to go with the salad and fruit and I had a nice piece of Salmon and a Beer with my Salad and Fruit.

Daily SmartPoints Total = 30

2017 Goals
Make time each week to Meal Plan
Drink 100 ounces of water each day
Exercise 5 days a week
Eat three meals and one snack daily
FOUR 100 Mile Walking Challenges this year! (This goal has changed a little now that I have this fabulous Fitbit.)

    I love those little ones so very much!! (So glad I rested Friday. Ha ha)

  4. You always sound so happy when you spend time with those little ones.
    You certainly did need that extra sleep on Friday to keep with those little energizer bunnies.
