The Wednesday Wrap-Up

 this morning started with a beautiful sight

I love waking up to these sunrises from our 3rd floor bedroom windows. I get a giddy excitement when I see the warm reddish glow on our walls from across our room. I am usually scrambling to reach for my glasses, whilst shushing the iphone alarm, and tip-toeing over to the windows to peer out to the world to see what mother nature has offered up. This morning I was not disappointed! 

There is something about sunrises and sunsets that absolutely never gets old to me. If you've seen one, you definitely have not seen them all. Not one is ever exactly like the last. Perhaps growing up the daughter of a pilot has me conditioned to looking upwards in amazement. 

I digress... 

So this morning was gorge, you get it...moving on. Something that was not especially ideal however was the temperature. WHOA- who smacked around old man winter, because he's POed! It was wicked cold this morning. So cold in fact, my poor little dual heating system in my "learning cottage"  at school was working overtime but still coming up short. 
This was our temp at 11am. Yeah! Needless to say I taught most of the day in my parka and my kids spend the morning working with their coats and gloves on. Thank goodness they rock and roll with the punches. Including my "toughest" student fashioning his scarf identically to my pashmina. You know, the way Oprah taught me/us to wear it. That was my kiddo crack up of the day. If only you knew the personality of this kid, it would make you giggle too. 

In other news, here's a wrap-up of some pretty products I'm loving at the moment...

1. Any essie nail polish color. [but esp. this one because it was given to me by one of my sweet besties] 2. Kiss My Face bath gel. It magically melts away any days stress. Just the smell of it bubbling up in the tub relaxes my shoulders. 3. Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner. This stuff is unreal. I don't usually get this pumped about hair products because quite frankly they usually fall short of expectations, execpt this one. Changed my hair. End. of. story. 4. Hope in a jar, should be called money in a jar. Shwew it's expensive- but I got it fo' free with some other recent Sephora purchases. Though pricey, this little cream does work wonders on winter whip-lashed skin. And, a little goes a long way. So there. 

Tonight for dinner was nothing earth-breaking or extraordinary, but it was yummy. So I thought I'd share. I made a WRAP....yeaaah, told ya there would be puns ;)

Sando's Spicy Crunchy Cucumber Turkey Wrap

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp of chile garlic sauce 
  • dash of s+p
  • 1/2 of a peeled cucumber, chopped finely
  • 3-4 slices of deli turkey
  • hand full of baby spinach
  • 3/4 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 wrap of choice (I choose a spinach tortilla wrap)

  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Lay out your wrap flat. Spread a thin layer of the greek yogurt/cucumber mixture all over the wrap. Layer it with the turkey slices, baby spinach, and pepper jack cheese. 
  3. Then wrap it up! You can chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours and cut in small pinwheel pieces for a yummy appetizer or cut in half and sample it immediately, like I did. The other half however, will be for lunch tomorrow :)
**You really can't go wrong with wraps- peak in your fridge, grab some ingredients, [maybe ones I've suggested] and throw them in. 

layer it up!

lunch is ready-to-go!

That's a Wrap people.
