Happy Sunday Friends!
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend. Well my week of vacation turned out to be anything but a vacation thanks to that car accident injuring my knee and giving me whip lash. I’ll never understand how accident injuries take days to rear their ugly heads, but I’m told by everyone it’s normal. I ended up canceling my trip to L.A. this week which I was and still am beyond sad about. I made it to the terminal, but by that time I was in too much pain. I knew I shouldn’t be traveling but to my couch. So I stayed home even though my heart and mind wanted to be with my friends. You have no idea how much I really needed that vacation. On the bright side, my car is supposed to be patched up from the wreck this week and my foot is feeling better. Go figure!
With that my lovely friends, enjoy some light reading with this edition of The Sunday Skinny and see you back tomorrow with something deliciously refreshing & skinny. P.S. it pairs with these 95 calorie treats!
