Longest Week EVER!

March 19, 2009 at 8:42 pm 18 comments

Seriously this week is so slow, work has been so hectic, and overwhelming this whole week, and I’ve been pretty stressed for reasons I don’t want to get into on here.  I’m so ready for tomorrow at 5 when the weekend begins!  This weekend should be pretty fun, tomorrow night my only plan is to go to the gym and then bum around the house.  Saturday I’m going out with friends to celebrate my birthday (which is actually Monday, I hate when my birthday falls on a week day!)  Then Sunday I have the NYC blogger brunch!  Which I am super excited about but also super nervous about.  I get terribly nervous meeting new people, so if you’re going to the blogger brunch on Sunday and I seem quiet, I’m probably just a little anxious about the whole thing. 

I also want to thank Ellie for giving me my first award!!  She’s seriously the sweetest person, and an excellent blogger!  Please check out her blog if you haven’t already.

E_award_thumbI would like to pass this award on to Sarah, she does amazing things with food, that I would never think of.  Check out her blog for some resourceful ways to use “found food”.  Her comments always make me smile, so thanks Sarah.  I’d also like to pass this award onto Dori.  Her posts always make me laugh outloud, she’s got a great sense of humor.  I’m also meeting both of these girls at the blogger brunch so can’t wait to meet the 2 of you!

So let’s get into today’s eats.

For breakfast I had some overnight oats, 1/2 a cup of oats, 1/2 a cup of skim milk, some vanilla extract, and cinnamon.  After I heated it up this morning I added pb and some granola because I was craving a crunch.

I’ve missed my oatmeal, it’s been about a week since I’ve had it.

The other night when I made Andrew’s lunch burrito I made an extra either for another day for him, or for me.  It was really good, but the wrap was a little soggy.

It contained brown rice, salsa, vegeterian refried beans, and cheddar cheese.  Yum!

Later I felt a little sluggish so I decided I needed some fruit to give me some energy, I had a gigantic orange for a snack around 3:30.

After work I had a bit of a tension headache so I decided to take a long hot shower, Andrew was in charge of making dinner and he made some whole wheat spaghetti with “meatballs”.  Can you tell we’re obsessed with these “meatballs”?

After dinner we went to his parents house again, today was his Mom’s birthday so we brought some flowers and a gift card over.   I may have snacked on some chips and salsa while we were there.  But again no picture.

Well I’m going to read and go to bed!  Hope you all have a great night, and let’s hope Friday goes fast for everyone!

    I love giant oranges!!! And I’m inspired by you to do my own version of overnight oats. 🙂 Thank you girlie!!! You have great eats. That burrito also looks non-traditional and very tasty – right up my alley!

    Don’t worry, I get nervous too. The meet up dinner was surprisingly natural and organic, and I am sure the brunch will be too.
