10 to 6 & Mississippi Fun Facts

By Hblack79


Good Morning!! This was a view from my walk yesterday!  I just love seeing rainbows!

I’m getting prepared for a weekend with a bunch of middle schoolers!  I’m chaperoning camp this weekend and I’m slightly nervous.  I haven’t worked with middle-school students in YEARS!   Last night we had our leaders meeting and although I’m unsure what to expect, I have a feeling it’s going to be FUN!  I won’t be blogging over the weekend because I’ll be off with some kiddo’s.

My WORKOUT this morning was awesome.  I used a circuit workout from Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers and it did the trick.  I was running behind getting to the gym, so I didn’t complete the whole circuit, but I did a set of 10 and a set of 9.  I also did a 5 min. warmup and cooldown plus some stretching.  I was still a little sore from my HIIT workout on Tuesday.  Overall, I felt like I got a great workout in with this and look forward to doing it again with more time!

If y’all don’t follow Julie, you should!! She’s by far my favorite blogger.  I check her blog 2-3 times a day for new posts and she’s definitely been a blogger role-model to me lately.

For BREAKFAST I enjoyed another egg, veggie bacon, & english muffin sandwich.  It was so good yesterday that I wanted another on.  I thought I’d share the actual “recipe” (which, it’s probably improper to call it that because it’s so easy peasy!)


Egg & Bacon English Muffin

  • 1 whole wheat english muffin (toasted)
  • 1 boiled egg (sliced)
  • 2 slices of Mornging Star Vegetarian Bacon (Microwaved for 1:30)

Just layer the sandwich up.   I’m going to start boiling eggs for the week because it’s been an easy fix for me.  I had this egg in the fridge, ready to go, which is perfect when I’m running behind like I was this morning.  I had enough time to prepare this (literally a minute and 30 seconds) and then eat it before heading out the door today!  You could also add some sauteed veggies, cheese, or jelly to bring it up a notch!


One thing you’ll learn quickly about me is how much I love the state I was raised in.  We fall behind in a lot of areas that get a lot of scrutiny, but I see the beauty in our state and we really do have a lot of unusual facts to be proud of!  I found some Mississippi Fun Facts and wanted to share some of those with you today!  Most of my information was found here & here.
