What I Ate Wednesday + Random Outfit

Hi friends! It feels nice to be paying attention to this little blog again 🙂  I’m here today with a “WIAW,” or What I Ate Wednesday, courtesy of Peas & Crayons (click the button in this post to visit the P&C blog!).

Today was a pretty typical day of eats for me.  I started off my day with my daily ritual of watching the Today Show with a cup of coffee and breakfast, a bowl of Bear Naked Fit cereal with coconut milk:

Breakfast WIAWLunch was from California Tortilla.  I’m not a huge fan of this place, but I wanted to get some fresh air at lunchtime so I walked over there from my office.  The food is – eh, ok.  They do have an interesting selection of hot sauces with names like, “Rectal Rocket Fuel.”  And I’m serious.  I ordered a chicken and veggie bowl with brown rice and a Vanilla Diet Coke.

Lunch WIAWThe hubs picked up dinner for us tonight, which was pretty much a repeat of my lunch!  I didn’t complain, though, as I was starving and this came from one of my favorite places, Chipotle.  He ordered me a veggie bowl with black beans, fajita veggies, and guac.  Good stuff 😉

Dinner WIAWAnd on a random side note, I thought you might find it funny that I noticed I wore the exact same color scheme today as the Vera Bradley that I carry to work every day.

OOTDSo matchy matchy!

Now I’m just relaxing and watching the last few minutes of Top Chef Masters on Bravo (obsessed).  Hope you’ve had a great day!


Hello, friends!

It’s been a little while since I had a “What I Ate Wednesday” post up in here.  I remembered to keep track of my eats yesterday…let me know if you sense a theme here 😉

1. Breakfast was my current favorite protein shake, made with 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 3/4 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin, 1 tablespoon of flax seed, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and ice:

2. Late in the morning, I enjoyed a cup of Starbucks from our office Keurig, a brown rice cake, and about a tablespoon of almond butter:

3. I stepped out at lunchtime and grabbed a grande non-fat Pumpkin Spice Latte from Stabucks:

4. Later, I enjoyed a Twizzler and…you guessed it…another Starbucks beverage! This time it was a Refresher (I’m addicted to these!)

5. When I got snacky late in the afternoon, I grabbed some baby carrots and a little bit of spinach dip to hold me over until dinner:

6. And finally, my husband and I did not feel like cooking at all for dinner, so we nuked some of these evol burritos for dinner (which are actually surprisingly delicious)

So, yeah…my eats were truly unremarkable and surprisingly full of Starbucks products. I could have definitely made some improvements, but hey, I’m keeping it real around here!

Can I make up for my crappy eats with a “What I Wore Wednesday” (WIWW) instead? Here’s a recap of my outfit of the day:

Outfit of the Day, October 9th

Playing on Polyvore is so much fun!  I get to pretend I wore anything half as expensive as what you see here 😉  In reality, my shirt came from Target, as did my skinny jeans, my shoes were on sale at Macy’s, my lipgloss was a freebie from Ulta, and my scarf was a super clearance item from Boscov’s.

What’s on your menu today?  Hopefully something much healthier than what you see here!  Have a fabulous day 🙂

Vacay outfits

I.MUST.start.packing for our vacation.  I’m never this last-minute!  But alas, life has been a little bit crazy lately…and I’ve just plum run out of time.  Timing couldn’t be better to go on vacation and get away from it all!!!!

Fortunately, I have the whole packing list in my head 😉  Kidding – but I did put together some visuals.

Cancun vacation - beachside

So, obviously I plan on spending a LOT of time by the pool and/or beach! Give me a big floppy hat, my sunscreen, and my Kindle, and I am set. I’ve already downloaded the Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy for some poolside reading material 😉

Cancun vacation - day trips

We are going to be doing some sightseeing during the day around the Cancun area, including a visit to ancient Mayan pyramids. I’ll bring along our camera, my hiking shoes, and a baseball cap!

Cancun Vacation - Night

Cancun Vacation – Night by missmenden featuring gold jewelry

I’m excited for this trip because it’s going to be super casual and relaxed. And the clothes should be the same way! I plan to wear comfy dresses or shorts to dinner at the resort, with strappy sandles and wedges.

I’m also planning on packing light…we’ll see how that goes! 😉

A happy Easter in pictures

Hey friends!  Hope you had a lovely Sunday.  We had such a nice Easter…the hubby and I went to his sister’s house and ate a delicious lunch together out on their deck.  It was sooo warm and sunny and relaxing!

Here’s the day (mostly in photos):

It was a little chilly, so I threw on this sweater with it:

I like how the belt looked with the dress!  (First mentioned here):
