MIA!

So sorry I haven't been a good blogger the past couple days. Monday was super busy, didn't get home til late and just really wanted to go to bed. Then yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and feeling blah!! (NOOO!!!!)...plus only worked a half day because Brian and I had to head up to NH for a wedding of his friend from high school. Therefore no Internet for me once I left work :(

Ok, but I am back now with a mini re-cap.

A Few Things I've Tried Recently

FINALLY, saw these at WF's and had to pick up this flavor! I have been breaking little pieces off here and there (still have some left). WOW...I am LOVING this flavor. You can immediately taste the Almond flavor (extract!)...which just makes me think of delicious cookies and Almond macaroons. These are a new Favorite Fo Sho!!

I received a coupon for a free pack of these babies (plus some other fun stuff to give away...stay tuned!!).

I haven't had regular flavored yogurt in a LONG time (Greek all the way normally)...so this was a tad sweeter than I'm used to, but its sweetened with sugar not fake crap so that's good! I'd like these after lunch like a dessert! Or with a less sweet granola topping perhaps?? I don't really understand the added digestive properties...

Yo-Plus for Digestive Health
"With just one cup of Yo-Plus™ yogurt, you'll treat your body to our unique Optibalance™ blend of both probiotics and prebiotics — including three grams of fiber — to help your digestive system keep the balance nature intended."

Perhaps I eat a healthy enough diet with fiber already that this didn't make too much of a difference, but I want to give it a couple more tries first. The extra fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics can't hurt though!

Monday I used some leftover Steel Cut Oats that I had made on Saturday!
Reheated with a little extra water, and added:
  • strawberries and blueberries
  • coconut
  • Zoe's Honey Almond Granola
  • Little piece of Almond Country Square
  • small drop of German Chocolate PB Spread
  • small spoon of White Choc. PB!

As I said Monday was BUSY! After work, Brian and I went to meet with a Loan Officer and got Pre-Qualified for a Mortgage!!! Now we can start looking for houses!!! So scary and exciting at the same time!

Well that meeting went looooonger than expected, then we quickly picked up a wedding gift at Crate and Barrel and then it was 8pm!! I hate eating late but what are you gonna do?

Cheesecake Factory was right there.

I got a chopped veggies salad with a piece of salmon on top!And, while he is usually a very healthy eater...the boy needs a good burger once in a while and I had to take its pic!

The Tons of Fun Burger - Yes, It's True! Double Patties, Double Cheese, Triple Sesame-Seed Bun with Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Pickles and Secret Sauce. Served with FriesI SO had to take a bite :)

Left work early for a wedding...pretty low key but fun! One of Brian's high school friends. They are Mormon (not super strict though...so I've heard). I don't know much about that religion, but it was definitely different than any wedding reception I've been to, but it was really nice!
Brian, his high school friends...and me :) Leave it to me to wear the brightest outfit of the evening haha!

Well my throat is still not great...but I don't feel crappy so that's good! I really hope to get to the gym tonight!!!

  17. The Maple Almond Butter Cookies were just sweet enough! That's what I love about the maple syrup - it's not super sugary sweet. Much more natural sweetness. :)

  18. That is one monster burger! I don't even know how you would start to eat it. Looks like it was probably pretty tasty though.

    Hope you are feeling better.
