I looooove me some chicken salad. When I was in college and I was just starting to find my own way in the health world, I started eating tuna salad every day because chicken was more expensive than tuna. Once I left college, I couldn’t even look at tuna again. I’ve bought many packets since and they just sit in my pantry because I can’t even think about that smell. So instead, I make chicken salad now! And it’s one of my favorites because I can eat it for lunch all week long. Yesterday I ate it with Simple Mills Black Pepper Crackers and some veggie spears, and it was the perfect little lunch! Any recipe that gets better with time is a recipe I can get behind. Also any other recipe I make. I gotta support all my recipes, ya know?

So I talked a bit on Tuesday about how nervous I was since I was starting my tattoo removal process on Wednesday. Well, first session is officially done! Yesterday I exhausted my body by getting a profractional done on my face then going to the tattoo removal place to get my first session done. Luckily, technology has come pretty damn far since I started thinking about getting this tattoo removed 6 years ago. And I thought the profractional was much more painful. My tattoo is about the size of a dollar bill and is on my rib cage so no matter what, it’s going to be painful. But this new laser she used only took 20 seconds. I took 4 deep breaths and it was already over! I’m hesitant to share the process just because I get a little embarrassed, but my esthetician thinks people would enjoy seeing the process since many of you out there made the same mistake I did. So let me know in the comments if you would like to see a blog post about it once the process is all said and done! This is my first session and I should have 6 total, and they are spread out every 6 weeks, which means I should be all done and healed by November. Ugh.

Let’s change lanes a bit. What are you doing this weekend? My husband and I are doing a little date night at our favorite restaurant in town since we keep having to push it back as different plans come up. Date night, boxing class, and more bathroom renovation shopping. Since we’ve never done a renovation, I have zero idea where to shop for things like bathroom sinks and lighting. And since I absolutely hate stores like Home Depot, I’m staying far away. I’d much rather shop through small businesses. Before, we purchased our fridge from Sears and it started to break down super quick and we could never get a technician out. So when we got a new fridge, we purchased it from a small business in town and it has been AMAZING working with them. Any small issue, they will come out and fix ASAP! I love them. So now I need to find a small business that does sinks and showers…any ideas?

Remember the days on the blog when I use to b*tch about dating and my sugar and nut butter addictions. Oh how things have changed. Now I’m going to hair loss specialists and tattoo removal professional. What in the hell? Time is a real son of a b.

    Just one more vote for wanting to see the tattoo removal process! I have one in pretty much the same location as you and have contemplated having it removed, but just unsure of the pain, time and cost. I would love to know what laser they’re using on you that it only takes 20 seconds and is somewhat bearable pain-wise!
    I have another tattoo that I still love, 15-ish years later! So not all tattoos are created equal. 🙂

    Holy shit this is so good! I can’t relate to the tattoo removal (yet) but I’m 23 and think I’m closer to the sugar and nut butter addiction and whining about the boys I’m dating side of life. ??‍♀️ Thanks for the kick ass recipes!
