If you want the Rainbow you gotta put up with the Rain

Sorry I didn’t post last night we didn’t get home until 11 and I was asleep within 5 minutes of getting home.  We used to go out some nights at 11 o’clock, now I can’t stay up for anything!  Oh well I guess that’s what happens as you get older.

Yesterday I switched it up a little and had a smoothie first thing in the morning for breakfast. I had the time before work so instead of bringing my usual yogurt I blended up some purpley goodness.

This smoothie contained:

  • blueberries
  • pineapples
  • spinach
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • skim milk
  • POM juice

Delicious as always but I’m all out of bananas so I definitely missed that flavor!

Well you can’t expect me to stay away from Chobani for a whole day so that was my lunch!

I added granola and pb on top.  What a difference the pb makes in the staying power of this yogurt.  I had an apple on the side but didn’t wind up eating it until 3:30.

Here’s a closeup:

I began craving pizza around 4 so I was texting Andrew non-stop asking him if we could go out tonight to Harborside again.  He of course said we could.  On the ride home we spotted a rainbow!

Can you see it?  It just made me think how all week I’ve been upset and worried about my job situation and reminded me that after a rainstorm there’s a rainbow, it may sound silly but that rainbow gave me a little bit of hope for the coming months.

Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.

Dinner was at Harborside again, once I had their pizza last time I was in love and had to go back for that cracker thin crust. 

First I ate Andrew’s Salad which came with the dressing on it even though we asked for it to be on the side, I was going to say something but we didn’t see our waiter for quite a while so I just started picking at it.

Sorry for the dark picture, I wound up just flipping most of the salad over and the lettuce and veggies underneath barely had any dressing, I would say I ate about 1/2.

I also had a roll.

Then my pizza came, it was a lot cheesier then last time but it’s so fresh it tastes delicious!

Andrew got my other favorite from here rigatoni pomadora, and I of course and to have a few tastes.

Well I have a busy day ahead of me, with all the stress this week I let the cleaning of the apartment fall way behind so I need to get that done, then go to the chiropractor, then to the gym.  Around 3 my grandparents are coming to visit for the night so I’ll probably be with them for a while since I haven’t seen them in so long!  So enjoy your Saturday I hope it’s warm and sunny wherever you are!

    That lunch looks super yum! PB and granola are two of my favorite things. I’m happy you got to see a rainbow, that’s how I usually try to think about those things too, almost like it’s a sign or someone trying to remind me that there’s better times ahead.
