One More Week

I swear I only have 1 more week of this crap (i.e. studying and stressing), then I can go back to normal life and only worry about work, the wedding, blogging, house hunting...you know, the usual :)

I wisked myself to my mom's house this weekend to get in some uninterrupted studying time!

But a mini re-cap:
The Weather!!
I'ts been SO GORGEOUS here in Boston!! Friday was 70*!!!! I couldn't possibly make myself study Friday after work so I got home and went for a run! It was great. I don't know how far I went but I was out for about 40min...running with some walking. Then I met up with friends in the North End where I had 1.5 glasses of Savignon Blanc at Bacco, then an appetizer at Monicas!

The wine was Oyster Bay Savignon Blanc...AMAZING!

Saturday was super study time...I made myself a GREEN smoothie and headed off to Mom's. I love how sunny warm(er) weather makes me want to eat better in general :)
  • 1 cup Almond milk
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • handful of Kale
  • 1/3 ripe banana
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • >1T Almond Butter
  • mmmmmmmmmmmmmmGREEN!
Saturday wasn't too exciting, I did take a shopping break with mom later that night. I'll have to take some pics of my purchases!

Sunday was grocery shopping, and then I made my mom Kale Chips!She gets such a kick out of some of the things "I come up with" (I know I didn't come up with them...I told her that) but she really liked them!

then MORE studying, then another great run!

I followed up the run with lunges up and down the driveway, some arm work with dumbbells and abs!

For dinner we got out, and headed to one of my faves: Legal Seafoods!

After the wine Friday I was actually craving it again...this is like the most wine I've drank in 1 weekend in a while hahaNot as good as Friday's...but still yummy. I love the little fishy guy on their wine glasses.

I wanted to get a good serving of fish, so I ordered the Wood Grilled Assortment: the Chef's selections of three fish, shrimp, and scallopsThat would be: Scallops, Shrimp, Blue Fish (far right), Tuna (middle under the shrimp), and swordfish (can't see it under the shrimp). Steamed Broccoli and Snap Peas as my sides!

They are the masters a wood grilled fish...it's always so flavorful and perfectly cooked! Plus I have leftovers for tomorrow.
Once again I hate my lack of posting lately, but everything is just sucky lately...wow this exam just puts me in the worst mood, I can't WAIT to be done on Friday!!!!

Hope you all have a great week! I am HOPE HOPE to see you tomorrow :)

  9. I love the Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc as well! If you like that one, many of the other SB's from New Zealand taste very similar.
