Happy Memorial Day!
I attended a fantastic Memorial Day service at church yesterday morning all about finding hope when you feel hopeless. Hit very close to home after all the recent events, that’s for sure! I can’t believe its already Memorial Day…..can you??
Sorry for my lack of post last night but, like our fishing trips seem to go, we didn’t get home until MIDNIGHT and I was so tired I couldn’t even see straight. Let alone open up my laptop. I showered and fell right into bed. We had a good time but were gone a loooong time and didn’t get to eat dinner until 10:45. NOT my style and believe me, I was as cranky as ever. But here’s a full recap!
Before we left yesterday I made a filling lunch, which was a good idea it turned out since my next meal would not be for another almost 12 hours. Meh.
A morningstar farms pizza burger (LOVE these!) wrapped up in an Ezekiel wrap with 1/2 of an mashed avocado. Tasty, quick and super filling! Plus the last grapefruit with a little agave squeezed over!
When fishing with Ryan I know we are in the long haul so I am always sure to pack essentials. Yesterday I packed snacks—-
The other half of my One Lucky Duck raw granola bar, carrot sticks and an orange
Plus a total change of clothes (jeans and long sleeve t-shirt), a book, a magazine, a journal, a liter of water and a hairbrush. I’m very glad I packed each one of those things, I tell ya!
For the first time in an entire week, the weather was perfect and after we caught bait and anchored up we made some mojitos!
Ryan made the mojitos from adding light rum to a mix at home and we brought organic mint and tons of ice onboard! I LOVE mojitos!
We never caught anything but had fun regardless. However, around 7:30 I started getting very antsy to say the least. I was cold, I had to pee and I was hungry. The terrible three. Don’t mess with Jenna when she’s hungry!!!!! Ryan knows that very, very well.
I’m not trying to say Ryan is insensitive, which is definitely is not. Ryan is just a hard core fisherman and when the fish are out (or he thinks they are out), we stay out. I ate my orange and read my book.
Finally we got back to the dock around 8:30, cleaned the boat for an hour and headed to BJ’s Brewhouse for dinner. I was so hungry I could have eaten cardboard!! Of course I ordered something I knew would come out very fast, even though it wasn’t the healthiest option! I started with a cup of the tomato soup, which was more like a thick bisque and probably full of cream but it tasted like the best thing I’ve ever had after being so hungry!
And for my entree, I ordered the BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad with shrimp instead of chicken and the dressing on the side. Sorry for the blurry picture….my camera is on its last leg!
Being the guy he is, Ryan ordered the bacon cheeseburger and I’m not going to lie, I went to TOWN on his fries. I ate almost all of them!!! I was starving and they were piping hot seasoned thick cut fries. Nothing tastes as good as a fry when you are really, really hungry! Am I right or am I right?! The salad came with onion rings on it but I took them all off. Not a fan.
We got home around midnight and I fell into bed. This morning, woke up at 7:30 and made a big bowl of Optimum cereal (1.5 servings) with a banana in unsweetened vanilla hempmilk with white tea on the side. Mmmmm
I feel so sleepy though I might go back to bed and lay down!! Hey, its a holiday! 😉 I am planning on going to a 10:00 spinning class this morning but the rest of the day is up in the air. Ryan doesn’t have to work but I told him I was taking a break from the boat after yesterday’s exhusion so he might go with his dad instead.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy Memorial Day!
