Happy WIAW friends. Thanks for stopping by from Laura’s site. Hope you wished her a belated birthday! It has been a busy week here and I spent the weekend chilling out at home. While the ortho doc is happy with my foot I’ve been having a lot of testing and appointments with other specialists to assess my bone health and potential causes. Between managing appointments, dealing with my insurance company, and working it was a long week.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I got a new MacBook computer. While I am loving it and it is much better from my old one I noticed Apple started a new promo this week for computer and iPad purchases with the educational discount program. I had brought my computer through the discount program to get the small discount as the hospital I work at is affiliated with the university. They are giving a free pair of Beats headphones with the purchase now which is worth $150-300 depending on the style. The date I bought it was just outside the return window but the Apple Store manager was great and they honored the purchase and I walked out with these Beats Solo 3 for free. Always nice when companies step up like this. I’ve eyed this pair before but never justified the price. I’ve been playing around with syncing them and figuring out how to use them.
Standby of collagen and oatmeal. I’m relieved that my foot is showing signs of healing so continuing to pack my oatmeal with collagen! I had ran out of Go Macro bars and the online order I had placed was slow to ship. I had a bowl of yogurt and strawberry jam instead.
Came home briefly before having to head out to the lab center for more labs. Recycled pic of lunch. I ended up having to quickly eat this and run out as the phone rang just as I was about to eat.
I felt uninspired for dinner and since I was out all afternoon at appointments I had forgotten to thaw something from the freezer. I boiled a turkey and chicken hot dog which I paired with baby carrots and tomatoes. It was actually good considering how basic it was
I also had the last of these guys from the bag
I spotted these Chloe bars at Costco when I was there in the morning. I have had the mango ones but never the chocolate one before. I picked up a box to try
I had a chocolate one and it was delicious! Yay for a dairy free option!
Had a bowl of cereal and lactose free milk and then was off to bed.
Hope you all had a great week and have been able to enjoy some great food!
Any new food finds you’ve tried lately?
Do you use essential oils at all? If so how do you use them? I had a diffuser with some sample oil a friend gave me but had to return it as it was malfunctioning. I’m on the fence about whether to get another one. Any thoughts would be great!
I want to also make mention of the sudden, tragic, and saddening news of the passing of Erin who was a fellow WIAW friend. While I didn’t know her personally we would communicate via commenting. I always looked forward to her new posts and she was a wonderful writer. My deepest sympathies to her partner Joe and entire family.
