Friday I took off work so that Jon and I could leave early for the Train concert. I started my morning off with an ice cold green smoothie and Pilates at the gym. Bliss. I miss going to the gym in the morning. Only four more weeks until I can go everyday!
Later I had some carrots and hummus to hold me over until lunch.
A little while later we packed up, hopped in the car and headed south. The concert was at a casino about 3 hours away, so we had quite the drive! It was nice, though, and we arrived just in time to check into our hotel, eat some pizza for dinner (sorry, no pics!) and make it to the concert with plenty of time to spare.
Guys, the concert was awesome! If you don’t listen to Train, you should, and if you do listen to Train, you MUST hit up one of their concerts. They put on a great show and played all my favorite songs. Jon and I sang and danced the night away:)
The concert was over by about 10:30. We just headed back to our hotel and spent the evening just hanging out. It was the best night.
Saturday morning we slept in a bit, then hit the road. We picked up some Starbucks for breakfast – I had the perfect oatmeal made with soymilk. I added about half the amount of nuts and dried fruit that they gave me. This was my first time to try Starbuck’s oatmeal, and it was fantastic! It was the perfect serving size and was so delicious! I would definitely get this again.
Next, we met up with my MIL and FIL in the city. My FIL was going to play some golf, so we planned to hang out with my MIL for a couple hours. Not before joining in on a little family golf and juggling.
I promise there is a ball there:)
Later we hit up PeiWei for lunch. Yum! My favorite. I had a nice ice water with orange…
one vegetable spring roll…
and the Korean Spicy dish which consisted of brown rice, tofu, mushrooms, carrots, long beans, broccoli, sugar snap peas, onions and sesame seeds. I cannot get enough of this dish! I ate almost all the vegetables and about half the tofu and rice.
After lunch and some quick shopping, we stopped at my mom’s house to pick up Olive and headed back home. It was such a great weekend…I totally wish I could go back and re-live it all!
I started off this morning with a bowl of cereal. I found a new Nature’s Path cereal that has corn flakes, amaranth flakes and quinoa . It’s awesome! We found it at Big Lots ( a bargain store) of all places. So random! I’ll be doing a real review over it later.
After church, we had lunch at Panera (I had my usual – black bean soup and mediterranean veggie sandwich), then spent the rest of the day taking a nap, watering the flowerbeds, doing laundry, washing the car, cleaning out the fridge and buying groceries! Such a productive and fun afternoon.
Olive even made a new friend:)
And I ended the afternoon with another energizing green smoothie. This one had a TON of spinach, Amazing Grass, 1/2 banana, almond milk, a bit of soy yogurt, ice and a sprinkle of granola on top!
Well, that’s it for tonight! I’ve got to do some work for school still, and I need to be off to bed in about a half hour. eek!
