What up, chitlins?
Please don’t look too far into that greeting. It’s early and I can’t always be held responsible for the words that come out of my mouth before coffee. But just a peek into the window of my warped little mind would tell you that chitlins = children = sometimes I say “hey kiddos!” So yeah, now it toooooootally makes sense, right? Moving on!
I wasn’t really sure if I’d post today, but being as Jason and I get the girls on Monday for the start of their summer break, I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging for too long. You might…get lonely. Here, have a picture so you don’t forget what I look like…
Gym selfie: I don’t sweat, I sparkle! 😉
So, since the start of the summer of chaos…FUN! I mean FUN, is about to begin, this week’s been pretty mellow, but that doesn’t mean it’s been anything short of amazing.
On Monday night, Jason and I met up with some friends (whom we haven’t seen in MONTHS) at one of our old favorites, Pbody’s! Now, even though this place serves up some killer (and free) house-made chips with every meal, the last time we visited, I wasn’t too impressed with my entrée salad so I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting much this time. Boy, was I wrong!
I ordered the Monterrey Chicken which is topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions and melty Jack cheese and served over rice pilaf along with some steamed broccoli and a house salad and was totally blown away by BOTH! For a house salad, the toppings were great: bits of ham, bacon, cheese, and RIPE tomatoes and as for the entrée, everything was cooked to perfection. Jason ordered the Chicken Parm and I have to say, the bite I ninja’d was pretty darn tasty. Also? Two baskets of chips were harmed during this dinner. 😉
On Tuesday, I went by my mom’s and picked up my Premier Jewelry order from the party she hosted a couple of weeks ago . I wasn’t really sure about the bracelet I ordered at first (I’m really not much of a jewelry person) , but after a couple of days of wearing it,
I’m now in love.
Later that day, Jason and I decided to go for a walk at the park down by the river. We don’t go to this one much because it can be pretty windy and even on pretty days can feel kinda chilly, but this was the perfect day. After he humored me and my little mushroom photo-shoot, we found ourselves walking right past the back entrance to Pbody’s and started joking about how we should go in and get chips and drinks.
So that’s exactly what we did! I ordered the Strawberry Lemonade (which I swear tasted like freakin Koolaid) and he got the Electric something-or-other which I found oh so amusing that it came out in a girlier glass than mine! And seriously…those chips?
Yesterday, we took another walk…this time without a happy hour intermission, but it was just as much fun. You don’t realize how much you lose interaction when you sit in front of the TV together ya know? And? Since my clutz-burger self is always watching where I put my feet, I found a little friend! Is it just me or do you just not see as many snails these days? For obvious reasons I had to harass the poor thing all paparazzi-style. 😉
Then I took a little “me” time and drooled on myself for TWO WHOLE HOURS! I decided to discontinue my Massage Envy membership since I’m not really making it in as regularly as I’d like and I could kinda use the money to go elsewhere this summer (we’re thinking about taking the girls to the beach!). Wouldn’t ya know this, the final massage of my year and a half long membership would be the best on yet!
And the day just got better after that becaaaaaaaause…
I found the cookie of my DREAMS!!!
Seriously you guys, last week, I drug Jason ALL OVER TOWN looking for these little bastards. We went to five stores in two days and came home with nothing. Then, just as soon as I give up, I walk into Wal-Mart and BAM, a freaking wall of them! The graham flavored cookie and the marshmallow/chocolate swirl filling is spot.on! So worth the wait!
Meow, if you’ll excuse me, there is something else that I’m sure will be worth the wait…we’ve been waiting for months to see Lexie perform in the musical Cats and today is THE DAY! Ohh, do you see what I did there?
Be sure to hop on over to Spoons and see what it is everyone else is thinking on and out loud today! I’ll see ya on the flip-side! xoxo
Name three places you’ve been this week!
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten lately?
