And now...some pictures from the weekend! And what a great weekend it was!!!
Saturday I tutored for a few hours, went for a quickie run, and then Ben and I went on a day date to see "No Strings Attached". It was really cute! Definitely recommend it as a romantic comedy. :)
After seeing the movie, I received a text from a friend inviting us to dinner! But it was only 5:30 and dinner was at 7:00, so we headed over to Barnes and Noble to check out a few books we had in mind...and we had a xmas gift card to use! I looked at The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone; Ben checked out several evolution theory books. Well, we only had $25 in gift card money, and my book choice was over that! So Ben got Big Bang: the origin of the universe and I'll go back for my choice another day. :) It was actually Ben's gift card, so it was no big thang to not get a book!
We left Barnes and Noble and headed over to Bull Feathers, a bar and grill near our house. We met 3 couples and all got these HUGE chicken wing platters. OMG as my last meal as a meat-eater (at least for a while), HOLY MOLY what an amazing meal. I didn't take a picture; it would have just grossed out the internets...just imagine 24 wings (12 boneless, 12 regular), on a pizza pan, surrounding a huge cup of blue cheese dressing, with a few sticks of celery as garnishes. Gross? Maybe. Delicious? Absolutely.
Sunday morning I woke up with my mind set on a great workout and some fresh groceries!
Started with some peanut butter banana oats...
|His and Hers. <3|
After my workout, I headed over to Harris Teeter for some groceries. I had originally planned on going to Whole Foods, but the parking lot was a hot mess of construction, and I knew HT was close...so I changed my plan.
Check out my groceries!! Highlights: asparagus, wild rice, and beauteous bananas! Also excited to try the tempeh and quick barley.
|Lotsa fresh groceries!!!|
|Beets! And HUGE strawberries! heaven.|
|wet wet wet. :(|
After Ben came to the rescue and shop vac sucked the water up, I made dinner. It consisted of baked tofu, brussel sprouts, and some of my crock pot beans and rice!
Dinner tonight was quick and simple, as I worked until 4, then tutored until 7:30:
|roasted asparagus and zucchini|
Alright, that's all for now.
Oh! I was given the "Stylish Blogger Award" by my meat-less inspiration, Clare! I am so excited to carry out the responsibilities of being an award recipient...but not tonight. It's 9:53 and my alarm will be going off in 8 hours...and I'm an 8-hours-of-sleep kind of gal. :) So tomorrow! I will complete this excellent assignment tomorrow!
Oh, new Toms! I love love LOVE these! I ordered them on Friday and HELLO they were on my doorstep this afternoon! They are comfy and a little more "fancy" than my plain gray ones, so I MIGHT be able to get away with wearing these to school...I'm thinking I might pair them with white cords, a gray sweater, and some sort of bright tee? We'll see. :)
|Check that sparkle, girl.|
