Soft and Squishy

Those are pretty much the only things I can eat, anything that gives any resistance when chewing makes my jaw scream in pain from the ear infection.  Although almost everything I had tasted better it seems fruit and veggies are the major offenders in the taste category.  Wonderful I’m craving a salad but the crunch factor and the taste factor have kept me away.

For breakfast today I stuck with another soft bar.

So good, and I could actually taste it, of course the flavor was not as strong as it normally would be but it was still better then no taste at all.

For lunch I had some pb on an Arnold Sandwich Thin and an orange.  The orange tasted gross and I could barely taste the pb, I hope this infection clears up soon.

For dinner I didn’t know I wanted, I really need to go food shopping but don’t want to waste money on fresh produce when I know I’m going to be reluctant to eat it.  I’m planning on going Friday no matter what because I can’t go this long with out a nice big summer salad.  We decided to go to a local restaurant where they served breakfast so I could enjoy the french toast.

Nice and soft, it didn’t hurt at all to eat and I swear I could taste some cinnamon.  I also got 3 pieces of bacon on the side and since bacon is such a strong flavor I could totally taste it, again not as strong as if I was completely healthy but better then most things.  The bacon did hurt to chew a little,  because of my ears but it wasn’t too bad. 

After that we went to Andrew’s parents house to visit, and the to Petsmart to pick up some things for Geoffrey.  I’ll take some pictures tomorrow of his new home because we just finished setting it up.

Well tomorrow is my Friday already!  I love 3 day weeks!  Have a great night everyone!

$5 Footlong…

ZAand it wasn’t from Subway.  But we’ll get to that.

Yesterday was spent like any first day of vacation, hanging out by the pool, going to old favorite spots from the last time we were here, and of course napping.

For breakfast yesterday I had a cereal/yogurt mess.  It included vanilla chobani, 365 high fiber cereal, and Kashi Island Vanilla shredded wheat.

There is yogurt under there somewhere.

Then it was swimming time.  We hung out in the pool for most of the day.

Even Bailey enjoyed her time by the pool.

Here’s a picture Andrew snuck of me enjoying the sun.

I went in the hot tub for like 2 minutes but it was way to warm I felt like I was boiling in a soup pot.

After swimming and sunning we were hungry and we decided to go to one of our favorite local hamburger/hot dog joint.

Last year when we here for 2 weeks (oh and by the way “here” is the Outerbanks.  I didn’t realize I never said where we were until Caroline asked), and we came like 4 times. The chili dogs here are the best I ever had, and we had been talking about going again since my parents booked the trip.  And I decided to have the special of the day a $5 footlong with fries and a drink.  Actually my entire family and Andrew had the special.  Go big or go home right?

I ate and loved every bite.   Spankys is a cute little place that has monkey’s just about everywhere.

Once we came back it was raining so we hung out on the screened in porch until the rain stopped and we went right back in the pool.  Then it looked like rain again so we came in and I fell asleep for a couple hours.

After I woke up refreshed and ready for to do some food shopping.  As soon as we got back I made myself a big salad and was going to have a pb sandwich on the side but wasn’t that hungry, that footlong really filled me up.

It was romaine and cucs with Newman’s Own balsamic vinaigrette.

This morning we thought we would be waking up to rain but luckily it was sunny until early afternoon, we went for an early morning swim, and then I attempted to catch up on your blogs.  Once everyone was up and showered and dressed we went out to breakfast.  We went to a buffet called Western Sizzlin’.

I got a little of everything.

First to attempt to eat some healthy food I had some fruit.

Then I had a big plate of all the breakfast goodies.

A French toast stick ( I went back for a couple more of these).

I also had some homefries, bacon, a biscuit, and eggs.

DSCF4230

There’s a piece of toast under there but then saw the biscuits and decided to eat the biscuit and not eat the toast.  I can’t remember the last time I had a biscuit and I can have toast any time. 

Breakfast was of course wonderful, and then I did some super secret shopping, you’ll read about it soon enough (HINT giveaway tomorrow).

After returning back to the house we did some more swimming and then it started to pour.  We’re inside now, but as soon as I post this we have some more shopping to do. 

Hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday!

Beach or Bust!

I couldn’t be any happier right now, I’m almost all packed and ready to go! I have 4 hours until we’re on the road and on our way to the beach.  I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much this week, we’ve had to do a lot of things to prepare, Wednesday we had to go bathing suit shopping (I got 2 new bathing suits that will hopefully fit me throughout the summer because damn they were expensive), then we went to Panera for dinner (I forgot my camera but I do have pictures of the leftovers I had for lunch yesterday) and then my friend Laura came over so I could see her before we left and so she could show me some samples of invitations she got for her wedding next year.  After she left I cleaned the apartment a little and then went right to sleep.

I do have my eats from yesterday to share, unfortunately they are pretty boring because we seriously have NOTHING left in the fridge to eat.

For breakfast I grabbed a Luna bar.

Perfect as always.

Work was a little hectic yesterday because I had a lot of things to finish before my vacation started.  When lunch time rolled around I realized how hungry I was and was more then happy to eat my left overs from Panera.  I had decided to skip the “you pick two” and get a whole sandwich.  I got the Chipotle Chicken sandwich which I customized without the tomatoes (I hate tomatoes) I got it on regular french bread, and I didn’t get the chipotle mayo spread.  So even though it says it should be about 900 calories I’m guessing with it was less and I did spread it out over 2 meals so I don’t feel like it was that bad.  It was definitely delicious if nothing else.

Once I got out of work I had a quick errand to run, then met Andrew at my mom’s house so he could leave his car in their driveway instead of on the street by our apartment.  Then we ran to whole foods to stock up on some bars for the trip. On our way home from running errands I realized how hungry I was, I was craving pizza so I I had 2 pieces at our local pizzeria.  I got sausage, peppers, and onions.

Picture 005

After dinner I went to my friend Jessica’s to drop off a check I owed her and to see her before we left, we only stayed for about 1/2 an hour but by the time we got home it was after 8!  Andrew still had to pack and I wanted to load up the car before bed.    Andrew couldn’t get off work today so I drove him into work this morning and will be picking him up and leaving right from their for the long road trip.  After I got home from dropping him off I called my mom to talk to her, I’m so excited to be with my family again tonight, while on the phone I saw a gigantic hornet/bee/wasp (whatever) on the window in the kitchen.

Picture 006

It’s hard to get an idea of how big this thing really is but it’s about the size (both width and length of my thumb).  I am convinced it is a killer bee of some kind (are those even still around?)  I grabbed a can of hornet spray from under the sink but there was barely anything left in it since I have to spray every bug I see with it, I called everyone of my friend’s to see if their boyfriends were around, I even contemplated calling the landlord to come up and take care of the situation.  I was afraid I would hit the bee not kill it and then it would come after me.  Then I came up with a brilliant plan to kill the bee!

Picture 008

I got a glue trap that we had, sprayed a fake flower with some perfume and placed it on the glue trap hoping to entice the bee to step on it.  I do not know if this worked because I’ve been hiding out ever since if it doesn’t work soon I will be picking a real flower and placing it on the trap, if that doesn’t work I’m going to just leave for the week and hope it dies on it’s own. 

Well I’m off to run the last of the errands, we will be on the road at 3 and won’t be arriving until very late since we have at least an 8 hour drive.  I will be blogging throughout the week (hopefully poolside) and keep your eyes open for a very exciting give-away sometime early in the week!
