These pictures are from my two previous trips to Punta Cana
Yep, in just eight short weeks I will be in the beautiful Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, with six of my closest girlfriends. We talked about the trip briefly a few weeks ago, but then I thought plans kind of fizzled out and I didn’t know if we were still planning to go. Then yesterday my friends brought it up again and we decided to take the plunge!
The six of us will be in Punta Cana from Thursday, April 18, through Monday, April 22. Hoooray!
The best part is that since we used one of my favorite websites, CheapCaribbean.com , we were able to score a great deal and the whole trip is only going to cost me $820. That includes the hotel, airfare, transportation to the hotel, food, and beverages during the entire trip. Awesome, right?
If you couldn’t tell, I’m a wee bit excited…especially since three of the girls who will be coming on the trip live in NYC and I don’t get to see them that often. I can’t imagine anything better than spending four days in the sun with my besties!
Anyway, I should probably stop rubbing my upcoming trip in your face so let’s move on to today’s What I Ate Wednesday post!
This month Jenn is encouraging us to “Love our veggies” and I think I did a pretty good job yesterday! Here’s what I was eating…
Would you look at that? A new breakfast combo Although I am still loving my Fiber One and Fruitful O’s cereal combo , I did pick up a few new-to-me items at the grocery store this weekend and I have been enjoying them all week.
For breakfast yesterday I had a toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin with Cinnamon Laughing Cow cream cheese. Holy deliciousness, this combo was awesome. Unfortunately the cinnamon raisin English muffins don’t have as much fiber as the ones I usually get, so I was feeling hungry for lunch earlier than usual. I didn’t mind too much though because it was worth it for the taste!! Yummm.
On the side I had a banana (that looks like it got into a fight!) and some fresh blueberries and blackberries. Awesome breakfast.

Lunch yesterday was pretty typical for me. I had turkey breast, American cheese, and mustard on a sandwich thin. On the side I had baby carrots and hummus. Same old, same old. I don’t mind one bit though since this lunch is so delicious and filling. I am always satisfied after eating this combo

Even though my lunch filled me up, my sweet tooth has been ravaging lately (probably due to all the free candy that’s been laying around at work) and I wound up eating one of these chocolatey Weight Watchers cookies that I made over the weekend . It was delicious and exactly what I was craving after lunch. Yum! I’m hoping to share the recipe with you guys tomorrow, so stay tuned!

At around 4:30 I started feeling hungry again so I ate a delicious Honey Crisp apple. That’s definitely the best kind of apple, in my opinion! I could eat a million of these.

For dinner I had some spaghetti squash topped with tomato sauce and chicken sausage. The chicken sausage was “basil and herb” flavored and it was so good. I am a huge fan of chicken sausage since it’s so easy to cook and is only 2 Weight Watchers points + per sausage. De-lish.
After I snapped this picture I topped the whole thing with some shredded mozzarella cheese and put it under the broiler for a few seconds to melt. Omg this dinner was so good. Spaghetti squash is an amazing, amazing veggie, I tell ‘ya.

Ahhh, Girl Scout cookies. How I love/hate them. Between the Tagalong and Dosi-do cookies that my sister gave me over the weekend, I couldn’t resist heading into the kitchen after dinner yesterday to munch on a few of these peanut-buttery treats. They are so good and even though I only get to enjoy them once a year, I am thinking about taking them to work to get them out of my apartment. I’m all for supporting my sister’s Girl Scouts Troop, but when it comes to actually having the cookies around I’m not sure it’s a good idea. They are just so tasty (and fattening) and my self-control wavers every time I see the box. Heeeeeelp! Haha!

Question of the day: If you could go on vacation anywhere with your best friends, where would you go?
Originally my friends and I were going to go to Coachella in Los Angeles, but a few conflicts arose and we decided the beach would be more fun and more manageable. BTW we are selling our Coachella tickets so if anyone is interested in buying them let me know!
