Too Much Fun?

Wow I really disappeared huh?

First of all your comments were all so sweet, thanks for all the congratulatory comments on our engagement!  I was so excited to share that news with you guys and your comments all made me smile from ear to ear. 

I enjoyed the last day of vacation on Saturday and then Sunday we were in the car alllll day I took pictures of my eats but really don’t feel like recapping 4 days worth of food.  Sunday after 8 hours in the car we were exhausted, we stopped by Andrew’s aunts house to see his family.  They were all so happy for us, his family is fabulous and I’m very lucky to feel loved and welcomed by them.

Once we returned from his Aunt’s house we unpacked a little and then crawled into bed I was passed out shortly after 9, driving (for 3 hours this time!) and sitting in the car was so draining.  Unfortunately I woke up at 3 in the morning with the worst pain in both my ears and my throat was completely swollen.  I had a feeling I had “swimmer’s ear”.  I was thisclose to going to the ER but talked myself out of it by reasoning that by the time I was even treated by the ER my doctor’s office would be open and I could save myself the $275 bucks.  I fell back to sleep around 5, then woke up at 6:30 in even more pain.  My doctor’s office was closed since it was Memorial day but the walk-in clinic they are affiliated with opened at 8.  I woke Andrew up and asked him to go to the doctors with me, and we both sleepily walked out the door, I locked the apartment door behind me before I thought to check that Andrew had keys.  Well he didn’t and we were locked out I started crying instantly I just wanted to get to the doctors and start feeling better.  I called my dad and he saved the day with the extra key we gave them just last week.  Talk about good timing, considering I’ve lived here for 2 years and I just thought to give my mom an extra key while we were on vacation.  Weird.

So I get to the walk-in clinic and luckily got right in to see the doctor.  Turns out I have a double ear infection and a throat infection!  Are you kidding me?!  It hurt so badly all day but luckily today I was feeling better and was able to go to work.  I could not believe that I got so sick literally overnight but with the ear drops and antibiotics I’m already on my way to healthy. 

The only thing that really sucked was because of the pain in my ears an throat I missed out on some delicious Memorial Day BBQing.  Yesterday all I ate was a hot dog roll and an Italian Ice.  Eating just wasn’t an option but that Italian Icee was better then any of the medicine I got for some instant relief.  Everything I chewed hurt so I just gave up.  Today although I was able to eat because of the throat infection everything either doesn’t have a taste at all or tastes down right disgusting.  I forced myself to eat a little more because obviously I can’t exist solely on buns and Ice’s. 

This morning for breakfast I had something I found on vacation!

I should have saved it until I could actually say whether or not it tasted good, but the texture heated up was easy enough to chew and swallow.  Oh, the “that’s what she saids” I could throw into this post. 

For lunch I went with something also easy to eat.

Picture 013

This tasted absolutely disgusting to me, I knew it was just because of being sick but both these items were waging war on my tastebuds.  Ick.  Even drinking water after this tasted wretched.

Later on I was obviously still hungry so I went with another soft bar.

Picture 014

This is an example of something that had absolutely no taste to me what-so-ever.

For dinner I was trying to think of things that were soft and tasted neutral enough to not inflict the nasty taste.  I settled on eggs and cheesy toast.

Picture 026

I had 2 scrambled eggs, (another example of no taste), 1 sandwich thin with mozz cheese, and one with mexican blend.  The mozz one had no taste but the mexican blend tasted disgusting.  I took one bite and was literally chugging water to get rid of the taste.

I got some exciting mail today though!  I won a giveaway on Erin’s blog, and was lucky enough to recieve some fun products from Doctor Kracker.

Just look at all the flavors of crackers I got!

I can’t wait to dig into these but want to save them until I can taste them!  Thanks so much Erin for giving me the opportunity to try these products!

Well I’m off to get drops in my ears and chug some cough medicine.  Have a great night!

Oh and just a note I haven’t really been commenting I have way too many blogs to catch up on but just know I’m reading and hope to get back to my usual commenting self soon.

Last Time…

This is the last Thursday night where I will have work the next day for the next 24 weeks.  Sounds kind of nuts huh?  With almost everything figured out I’m feeling much more upbeat and plan on spending a lot of time enjoying my Fridays during the summer.  2 of my friends don’t work on Fridays so we’re already planning some beach Fridays!

For breakfast this morning I had my usual Chobani (peach flavored today) with some granola.  Maybe this picture will make it a little less boring since I’ve eaten this breakfast everyday this week.

Picture 004

My boss is on vacation both today and tomorrow so I was fielding a lot of questions that would usually go to her it was a busy and draining morning so about 1/2 way through I had a gigantic orange for some energy.

 Picture 007

This orange was super juicy, just looking at this picture is making me want another one, unfortunately I think this was my last one.

For lunch today I brought a GIGANTIC salad in.  This salad contained:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • 3 meatless meatballs
  • carrots
  • mexican cheese blend
  • and Salsa

 Picture 008

I didn’t finish all of this salad it was just too big.  But it certainly was delicious!

Picture 010

When I came home there was a package waiting for me!

Picture 014

You’ve probably seen these floating around on the blogs and I was so excited to give these a try.

I got 9 bags of chips to sample.

Picture 021

I wasn’t very hungry yet but I decided to snack on a bag of these before dinner.  I choose the sea salt & vinegar to try first.

Excuse my nasty nails they need to be redone so badly!

These chips are really delicious, they are not like normal potato chips the texture was more like a rice cake.  The flavor was really good though and I can’t wait to try the others.

Finally I got hungry for a meal so for dinner I had brinner once again.

I had a mozzarella and spinach omelet.

Picture 050

On the side I also had a butter piece of double fiber toast.

Picture 046

And some grapes:

All together:

This dinner definitely hit the spot!

Well I’m off to read and go to sleep, after such a busy day I am definitely exhausted!

Enjoy you’re night everyone, and hope Friday flies on by so we can enjoy the weekend!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope you all had a fun St. Patrick’s day!  I completely forgot to wear green today, but luckily nobody pinched me!  I had a pretty busy day at work which made the day fly by.  I’m happy tomorrow is Wednesday because I’m pretty excited about the weekend and can’t wait for it to get here.  3 more days!

For breakfast today I enjoyed a Fage 2% with honey, I’m not the biggest honey fan, so I used less then a 1/4 of what was given to me.  But I did mix my usual granola in there.

Around 11 someone at work offered me some Sunchips, apparently someone must have tried to purchase it from the vending machine but it got stuck so when she went to buy them she got 2 bags.  I haven’t had Sunchips in probably a year, so I was not about to turn down a free bag.

Picture 003

For lunch I had an old favorite, peanut butter and raspberry preserves on Arnolds Double Fiber bread. 

Picture 004

For dinner I didn’t know what I wanted, I had bought some irish soda bread while food shopping over the weekend so I knew that needed to be a part of my meal tonight.  While I was deciding I decided to snack on something green outside in the sunshine.  It was of course another one of my favorite pickles.

Picture 009

I got a couple questions about what kind of pickles they are.  First off these are by far the freshest pickles in the world.   They are Ba-Tampte Half Sour Pickles, but the website doesn’t give much information.  I know they are from New York and I also know it’s not always common to find them so bright green they do start to look more pickle-y after a few days (but they typically don’t last long in my house)  it’s like biting into a fresh cucumber.   I wish I could invite all you pickle lovers to my house and let you sample them.  Last summer I went through so many jars, and always offered them to my friends, everyone has agreed these are the best pickles ever.  When they are this fresh they don’t taste sour or even half sour at all, that flavor comes on once the pickles sit around for a few days.  I do know they have no preservatives and have only all natural ingredients.  The sodium content is high but no higher then other pickles on the market as far as I can tell.  They are in the refrigerated section of the store, hope that will help some of you find it!

Finally I decided to have “green” eggs, roasted potatoes, and my irish soda bread serving as the toast.  I figured potatoes and anything green would make it in an Irish meal.  I’ve never liked corned beef so even though I couldn’t have had it since I gave up meat for Lent, I really wasn’t missing it at all.

And roasted potatoes.

All together now.

Delicious dinner.

Andrew didn’t go into his second job today because his allergies are driving him nuts so together we watched some TV and I snacked on a little more then a serving on Fro yo (that I never wound up having last night) with some chocolate chips and  less that a tablespoon of pb.  Such a great combo!

Picture 022

Well I’m off to read and go to bed.  Hope you all had a fun night, and I hope some of you enjoyed some green beers for me!

Brinner and a Popcorn Picnic

I can not wait for my dad to come fix the computer, it’s a lot of trouble getting my pictures onto Andrew’s laptop.  Andrew was up until after 1 last night trying to install some new updates hoping it would run better.  Today it went so much faster, and I’m able to post the rest of my eats from yesterday.

We decided yesterday afternoon that Brinner (breakfast for dinner) is exactly what we wanted.  I love Brinner, and we haven’t done it in a while.

My plate included two pieces of Arnold’s Double Protein bread, toasted with light butter.  And an omelet made with egg beaters.  Inside the omelet is 4 pieces of turkey pepperoni diced, and some part skim mozzarella cheese.  It was really good.  Like pizza in an omelet.

After dinner Andrew and I were trying to decide what to do, we wanted to go to the movies but the little movie theatre that’s in walking distance wasn’t playing anything we were interested in seeing.  We decided to do the next best thing, make some popcorn and watch a movie at home.

A friend got me a stovetop popcorn popper for Christmas, it’s a lot of fun to use.

Here’s the poppper with the kernels and oil in it.

dscf1442

Here it is after a few minutes fully popped,

dscf1448

It came with these cute movie style popcorn container so we filled those up and watched Get Smart.  What a funny movie I didn’t expect it to be so funny but it really was.  I love Steve Carell!

Here’s our popcorn all set up on the bed while we were waiting for the movie to start,

dscf1457

This popcorn was 100 x better then microwave popcorn, if you have a chance to pop your own I recommend it.

I have some errands to do and we’ll be back later, hope you have a great Sunday, and if you’re like me, the last day of your vacation!
