I’m off to my in-laws’ house today for a family party, so I thought I would recap Saturday before the busy day begins. I still have to get in my workout, shower, and then we need to be at my in-laws’ house by about 12.
For lunch yesterday, I had a 6 inch Subway ham and cheese sandwich and a Godiva Iced Vanilla Bean coffee. I received the Godiva coffee from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program and I’ll do another separate post on the coffee soon.
We headed out of the house to get Craig’s free birthday drink at Starbucks. Since he doesn’t like coffee, we got a Venti Strawberries N’ Creme.
Weird look on my face captured by Craig. I was sporting the cute starfish necklace I had received in the mail yesterday from a giveaway I won over at Stop and Smell the Wildflowers. Thanks again Amber! Love the necklace!
Next, we were off to Barnes and Noble to look around.
That is when I decided that bloggers are taking over the bookstore! Yay!
While at Bed Bath and Beyond, I was beginning to think that we’d never find a toaster that had good reviews or wasn’t cheaply made.
This one seemed cheap.
I liked the look and durability of this one, but Craig scanned in the barcode on his phone and found it didn’t have great reviews on Amazon.
Anything is better than the toaster we currently have which turns itself on! I hate having to remember to unplug it every time we use it. If only we had enough counter space for the toaster oven we own.
Enough ranting about toasters. We didn’t buy one and may just have to go with the Kitchen Aid one that is rated best on Amazon.
After a short nap on the couch, I got to the gym for a pretty good workout. I biked while reading Self magazine, pushed myself on the Cybex Arc Trainer, lifted weights, did abs with the ball, and tortured myself with various planks.
The rest of the night, I just relaxed, made a very late and random dinner, then did dishes and put laundry away since I knew I wouldn’t have much time for it today.
Dinner was a poached egg, provolone cheese, mushrooms, jalapenos, Frank’s Red Hot sauce, tomatoes, and I put Nutritional Yeast on top of the egg and tomatoes. I really couldn’t taste the yeast.
Dessert was nice and healthy–strawberries from our garden & blueberries, topped with some raw sugar.
I’ll be back tonight with a post about weird things and strangely named things families eat. One of the things we are having at the party today is not weird, but has a strange name that I had never heard of until I met my husband. Hearing the name cracks me up every time! Does your family eat anything particularly odd at parties or call certain recipes weird names?
