Happy Friday

I don't think I have ever been happier to celebrate the end of a week, ever!  It was a tough one, but we made it!
My Friday started out in the most delicious way- AB & Banana.  Whenever I eat this, I gross out my husband, which makes is exponentially more delicious!

I used my Alvarado Street Bakery California Complete Protein bread, a gigantic banana and 1 Tbsp raw almond butter.  The hearty bread (which I bought at Costco) and the crunch of the almond butter made this an awesome combo! I also loved the sunshine coming into the kitchen from the window!
While I enjoyed my almond butter goodness, I looked over to see my husband playing with his new toys- our new surround sound system:

I have a feeling that I may be ignored for the next couple of days until this is all set up!  I can't wait to start watching movies with this, because I'm told it will change our lives!
Lunch was my uneaten salad from last plus the addition of b-nut sqash:

It was all kinds of Fall goodness mixed together.  I heated it up and I swear it tasted like stuffing, minus the bread and sausage that tried to poison me the other night!  When I came home, I had this fabulous package waiting for me:

This was the prize I won in Jessica's giveaway!
This is some delicious preserves from American Spoon (with the coolest url ever-!  I'm so excited to try it out.  Thanks again Jessica

I'm blogging so late at night since we just got back from a dinner at our rabbi's house.  It was a really nice dinner, with healthy food, good conversation (even a little bit of food science and nutrition thrown in) and a great way to start the weekend.  I love the concept of slowing things down from madness to relaxation.  Do you do anything to unwind from the week to start your weekend? 
In case you are wondering, the hubby is still on the floor trying to set up our sound system.  New update coming tomorrow!

The only thing I do to unwind from the week and start my weekend, is sleep in on Saturday morning :-)

Great Blog!! I am finding new blogs to read and stumbled upon yours.

I love when my husband has projects. It usually results in some late nights.
