I didn’t actually get home last night until after 9pm! HA! I picked DD up right after work to go for hair appointments then it was straight to ball hockey, then the mall. It was great! DD took a picture of my hair while I was driving:
My hair is naturally curly, but no one can make that curl come out like my hairdresser!
Breakfast yesterday was some scrumptious French toast.
I soaked 2 pieces of whole grain bread in some egg beaters, USVAB and chai tea powder (yum!). As it was just about to come out of the pan I tossed in a handful of fresh blueberries and let them go until they popped. These topped off the toast as well as a drizzle of maple syrup.
I was SO tired yesterday at work. I could’ve put my head down and fallen asleep on my paperwork at any given moment. The gym was the last place I wanted to go but I knew that it may help perk me up some. I ate a berry almond Luna bar before going in hopes of a boost!
Each step in my 45 minute walk was forced…and I even out the incline down to 5% from 8. But I’m still glad I went because it woke me up a little.

I was quite hungry by the time I got back to my desk with my heated lunch! Like, almost ready to pass out hungry! Sheesh! I was happy to have a nice helping of Asparagus Barley Risotto to eat!
And because sugar always seems to go with being tired, I ate 3 mini cookies from the staff kitchen, too.
An orange also made an appearance,
I thought about inhaling this pb/chocolate treat, but ended up bringing it home for DD instead.
She enjoyed it….I would’ve regretted it! Hehe! We left the salon just as DS’s ball hockey game was starting so we made a pit stop at the grocery store for some portable dinner. DD had some taters and veggies with dip, I bought brown rice sushi:
And an apple from home.
The game was done by 7pm and we really didn’t feel like sitting around at home. DD had a few gift cert’s from her b-day to burn up so off to the mall we went. I found some great artwork for the bathroom walls (once my hubby gets them hung I’ll post the long overdue pictures!), the newest edition of Clean Eating magazine :
And some tea from a new tea shop that opened recently called David’s Tea .
My stylist told me about this place and that I HAD to try a tea called “Read My Lips” which is chocolate peppermint with a hint of chilli! And when she tells me something is great, I listen!
How’s that for a description??? Believe it or not, but this has actual mini chocolate chips and cinnamon lips in it! See for yourself…
How does it taste? AMAZING! It makes my tongue tingle…in a good way! I bought a fruity one for my hubby called “Bear Trap”.
I’m loving their descriptions! What a great find! And I can never leave the mall without stopping at Starbuck’s seeing as I only treat myself when we’re there. I went with a tall 1/2 sweet, decaf, dark cherry mocha!
I was just about to fall asleep last night when a wicked thunderstorm hit. It was LOUD! I was surprised neither of the kids flew down to our room and assumed they were asleep but they both told me this morning that it woke them up too. I did end up sleeping well, though.
Great start to the day and just the fuel I needed to power me through a few hours worth of serious, catch up housework. Ball hockey tied us up last weekend and not much got done. The rain held off so I put a few loads of laundry out on the clothesline. Love that! Before I knew it, it was time for lunch. I made a big salad with spring mix, cucumber, goat cheese, cashews, hemp seeds and Japanese ginger dressing:
Then I had a double chocolate biscotti.
DS had another ball hockey game at 2 so we went to watch that. There won’t be another game for 2 weeks now. Afterwards we dropped the boys off and went back to the mall because DD had bought a pair of shoes last night and then decided she didn’t care for them. I tried on a cute dress that I thought would be nice for a wedding we’re going to at the end of the month and it looked GREAT on me, but I didn’t feel 100% comfortable in it so I passed. I suggested DD try it on and she loved it so SHE bought it for the wedding! HA! How’s that for weird? It looks great on her, too…just in a different way. We stopped at Starbuck’s again on our way out. *blush* I had a tall NF 1/2 sweet iced green tea latte:
DD had a frap called “the Oreo”. Not sure what’s in it, but it was one of the employees featured fave’s and it was really, really good!
Can you decipher that?? I only let her drink half and the rest is in the fridge for tomorrow. We scooped the boys up on the way by the house and made our way to our friend’s place for a very causal dinner. Their baby boy will be one in a few weeks and we haven’t seen them since Christmas so a visit was long overdue! They had all the fixing prepared for subs which was just perfect. I topped my fresh WW bun with cheddar, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, pickles and honey mustard.
Such a simple, yet satisfying meal! My hubby went over to DQ and bought a cookie dough ice cream cake for dessert. Here’s my piece.
Their little boy was ALL over this! And so was I!! :) We’re back home now and about to watch Werewolf. Not sure what that’s all about, but apparently I’m going to like it. We’ll see. Have a great rest of the weekend!
