You guys, I am having a day. You know one of those days where nothing goes right? So, you just start laughing at all the things that go wrong.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Clumsy AF! I’ve dropped everything I’ve touched. Which is the first sign that I’m about to have “a day”

I was 20 minutes late for work. Mainly because it’s fucking Western Day for spirit week. Does anyone else dread spirit week? Bay needed help prying the pig shit off the bottom of her boots she wanted to wear to school. I can only imagine the aroma coming off them as she sits in class.

Not to mention I’ve got a zit. And this aint any ol zit. This thing is between my eyes. Like a 3rd eye. When I’m talking to people, I can see them staring at it. HA! Swear. And I’m a total picker/popper kinda gal. But, I’ve vowed to not touch it. I think it’s even giving me a mild headache? Is that possible? There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world for this bad boy!

I opened up my lunch and realized……I forgot a fork. And most days, that probably wouldn’t be the end of the world. But, I’ve been intermittent fasting. Meaning, at noon today, I hadn’t had anything other than water + coffee since 8:00 pm yesterday. So, 16 hours later you can only imagine not having a fork. HANGRY AF! I dug out a disposable fork. From the garbage (my personal garbage in my office). That I used yesterday. Washed it with hand soap and warm water (because that’s all I got). And enjoyed the hell out of those leftovers. Laughing the whole damn time.

Then, I went to buy a skeleton hand. At Walmart. And my card got declined. Because I’ve failed to balance my checkbook. So, I had to pull out my phone, transfer money. Then get back in line to make my purchase. Oh, yeah – It was a whoppin $3.08. Still laughing.

So, what’s next? We shall see! I cannot wait till bedtime!

But to be honest – how can you have a shit day on Taco Tuesday?

It’s Taco Tuesday, so it seemed fitting to share this Taco Rice Skillet today.

I totally tried something new. Had NO clue what the fuck I was doing. And it was a slam dunk! Bay loved it. Cory loved it. I ate it for 3 days straight. Lunch + dinner. And I could have kept going…lol!

Best part – It’s a one pot meal! Just one dish to wash! Great for weeknights. Even weekend.

Leftovers are legit too. You can use this for tacos. Burritos. Quesadillas. Crunch Wraps. Over salad. You name it, I tried it.

Anddddd, for all my Weight Watchers gals…..

It’s 6 points per serving. Minus all the toppings. The toppings can add extra points. But the skillet on it’s own with veggies on top, only 6 points. And you’ll feel like you’re being so bad when you eat this…ha!

This is where I insert my Weight Watchers spiel…….
