Thursday’s are my favorite day of the week. I love coming home and knowing that I only have one more day to go! We ran a few errands after work and stopped at The Limited since I have a coupon to use, for around $85 dollars I got a new dress, a navy blazer, a white skirt, and a purple cardigan. A pretty good deal, I love digging through the clearance racks and finding the best bargain in a good color and my size.
We also stopped at Target and I picked up 2 new bra (real exciting), a new hair brush and a wedding card for Tracy and Sam. After packing (or at least I packed, Mike is the worlds slowest packer!) and some toilet fixing we made a quick dinner of pizza rolls. Not healthy but pretty tasty.
I put together a bag of snacks for the car tomorrow afternoon as well, its a 5 hour drive and I hate stopping so I am determined to only stop once. Tomorrow night we are staying at a friend of Mike’s near Oshkosh, WI and then heading to the wedding on Saturday afternoon. I am really excited to see everyone!
I am trying to go out to eat less during the week for lunch, it was something I used to be really good and have gotten a bit lazy and I feel like it isn’t a good use of money. I always pack breakfast and snacks but this week I have made an effort to pack my lunch.
Today was leftovers from last night, our pork loin was a bit big for the kebabs so I cut off two pieces and grilled those to have for lunches. There was also some leftover Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains so I had a nice filling lunch. Mid-day snacks were kohlrabi and cherry tomatoes with Chipotle Hummus and some string cheese, nice and filling and had a nice crunch to keep me satisfied.
We don’t have plans tonight and I am looking forward to relaxing a bit, we will be out of town this weekend at my friend Tracey’s wedding in Wisconsin. We were best friends in high school and it has been way too long since I have seen her! Living 6+ hours away from your home town can be difficult at times, I really miss friends. I will have lived in Minneapolis 10 years in August, I can not believe how fast time flies!! It feels like yesterday I was moving up here with a big suitcase and some bedding and now we a whole house full of stuff.
When it is warm out I am not a huge oatmeal eater so I have been having Chobani Greek yogurt, Natures Path Pumpkin Seed Granola, and Fruit for breakfast this week. Today’s flavor was strawberry with fresh strawberries to go along with it.
I had a cup of Allegro Red Roobios tea to go along with it, it has a nice spice to it and I really enjoy its flavor.
