Happiness with a Side of Chocolate

Oh, and I washed my hair!! There can be miracles!!
If you don’t know, yesterday I broke my middle toe (thanks for all the lovely comments by the way friends!!) and I wasn’t sure when I’d be able to run again. BUT:
Last night, I was thinking over the broken toe thing, and I started thinking negative thoughts about why this had happened to me so soon after ‘coming back’ from injury. But I decided to put my trust in God because He has a plan, and it’s an AWESOME one!! Also just read this from the Purpose Driven Life, which really spoke to me:
I was SO HAPPY after that!! But I had a MUCH BIGGER cause for celebration!!
This is one of my best friends, and today was her LAST DAY OF REMISSION!! She is officially CANCER FREE today!! I am so proud, and delighted and INSPIRED by her and the way she’s dealt with her leukaemia over the past 7 years. She is truly an inspiration
Of course, we partied big time And guess who brought the (vegan) cake?
Sure it’s not a birthday (yet…13 days!!!!), but any excuse for a chocolate cake is a good one! This was Katie’s Healthier Chocolate Cake, which I slightly de-healthified with the 10 inches of chocolate buttercream hehe!
But don’t worry, I made up for it by eating plenty MORE chocolate!! You know, to prep my stomach for the chocolate overload later. Makes perfect sense…!
Breakfast: Oatmeal with chocolate pudding (my last pudding!!) and peanut butter.
Breakfast for lunch is also highly recommended…
Katie’s pizzert!! Made with banana and chocolate chips, and drizzled with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut butter…PERFECTION!
I did have some veggies too inbetween all that chocolate, I promise
But I think I’m in a bit of a sugar coma right now.
A very very HAPPY sugar coma
Tell me something that’s making YOU happy right now! It can be ANYTHING!
Have you ever had to overcome any medical problems? I had some sort of kidney failure when I was younger which means I now only have one kidney!
Favourite type of CAKE? Chocolate, covered in a LOT of frosting/buttercream. The ratio of frosting to cake has to be about 10:1 to be perfect for me. Can you tell I’m a frosting person?
Have an AMAZING weekend friends!! <3
