A crazy couple of days!

I seemed to have gotten super busy over the weekend and totally skipped updating the blog!  So we'll start at Friday morning and I'll post pics and do a quick recap.  Pear bread w/ Krema Natural Peanut Butter, Fage 2% with lemon curd on the side.

Lunch: Pita with Sabra hummus, leftover pork tenderloin, and shredded cabbage.  Carrot sticks on the side.

Friday was Bosses Day.  My boss is really cool!  I got her a Starbucks giftset.

Dinner was Mexican.  Forgot pictures.  I got the best carnitas.  It's now my new addiction! Also went to a bar and listened to our friend sing karaoke.  She totally sounds like a for real singer!  She's awesome! Had a few New Castles.  Not usually a beer person.

Then we headed to another bar where our friend Jason's band was playing.  Had one of these. 

Saturday I went to lunch with my best friends Pam and Vanessa.  We were celebrating Pam's birthday.  She wanted to go to Applebee's.  I got French Dip sliders and french onion soup instead of fries. These are not my pictures btw.

Saturday night we had dinner with friends at Delightfully Yours.  This is another of my favorite restaurants.  Again I didn't take pictures of my dinner because I didn't want to explain the whole blog thing. I had an apple and gouda panini with sweet potato fries.  Then I remembered that I don't care for gouda and immediately wished I had gotten my favorite...the butternut squash and bacon panini.  It is the best sandwich on earth.  Anyhow the apple and gouda was okay and the fries were the best ever! After we ate I did take pictures of the fancy chocolates.  I really liked the turtle ones above.  They were $2 a piece though and too cute to eat!
After dinner we wanted to watch Where the Wild Things Are but it was sold out! :(  So instead we did something I haven't done in literally a decade! 

That's right!  Bowling!  Cute shoes, eh? 

This leads us into Sunday.  I had plans...going to church, going to the gym, and going out shopping.  Instead I woke up with a searing pain in my right side.  It feels exactly like the two times I have gotten shingles.  Yes I am the only person under 90 who gets shingles.  :(  So far I'm just having the pain and nothing else so I really don't know what is going on!  I was in terrible pain and basically laid on the couch all day.  I also missed a day of my 31 day yoga challenge! :(  This makes me sad. 

I did make one meal however.  Eggs in a basket.  My husband loves these.  I think it's because he love V for Vendetta! lol!

This morning I started the day with waffles, Krema peanut butter, and strawberry All-Fruit. If anyone is wondering about the Lexapro plate I guess I should mention that I work for a mental health agency.  Lest it looks like I'm such a big customer that I get free dishes! :P

Since I haven't been feeling good I didn't feel up to packing a home-made lunch.  So I brought this Healthy Choice Mediterranean Pasta.  It's tasty and at least I can recognize all the ingredients.  Not perfect but it will do!

Snack was a gingersnap Larabar.  Yum, yum!

Dinner was Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta with Newman's Own roasted tomato and garlic sauce, and feta cheese.  I picked a quick dinner because  I was supposed to go to my first bible study but it got postponed til next Monday.  For the best though because I'm still feeling craptastic.

I didn't want to miss another day of yoga so I found this on streaming Netflix.  I did the 10 minute buns and thighs segment.  Pretty decent workout.  I can't wait to try the rest!

Now I'm going to snack on some Purely Decadent chocolate frozen dessert. I've been wanting to try these coconut milk desserts for a long time but they are always around $6!!!  This week they were on sale for $3.49 so here is my big chance.  Hope it's tasty!  After my snack I'm headed to bed!  Hopefully this weird pain will be gone by tomorrow! 


  1. Oh, my boyfriend had shingles, too, when he was just 31. I remember he took lots of vitamin C at the time. Here's a link to some great info on things you can try:

    And if nothing else, that Purely Decadent chocolate coconut milk ice cream should help you feel better. It's the best ice cream I've ever tasted!

  2. Mmmm..... lemon curd! I keep wanting to make some. Alton Brown did a show where he made lemon curd.

    My husband had shingles a couple times. Ouch!
