It's the weekend... and some new loot!

Sorry I haven't been around... I've had way more important things to do than blogging... like showing off my mad coloring skills...

No need to be jealous :)

It's the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so ready for this weekend to come!

Backing up to yesterday's food...

I made JR and I smoothies for breakfast... my favorite combo of 1 banana, 1/2 cup frozen cherries, 1 cup chocolate unsweetened almond milk, protein powder and some almond butter... good stuff :) (I had this today, too... I'll spare ya a repeat of that!) For lunch, I ended up at a place called Roly Poly's funny they call it sandwiches because really, they make wraps... hmm...
I got their Cider House Melt... which is...a Whole Wheat Tortilla, Smoked Turkey Breast, Baked Ham, Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, Spinach, Mushrooms, Onion, Grilled Golden Brown w/Side of Fat Free Apple Ranch Dressing

I had it with about half a bag of harvest cheddar sun chips and a bowl of cherries, strawberries and blueberries....

It was really yummy!!! I always forget about this place!!

My 3 year old, Maddie, called JR and I in the middle of the afternoon yesterday asking if she could stay the night with grandma and grandpa... so JR and I ended up having an unplanned date night!!!

We headed off to see a movie... which we haven't done in um... months... and finally went to see "The Hangover"! Told ya we are behind with our movies!!! It was pretty darn funny!!!

Then we headed off to our favorite pizza place, Mellow Mushroom for dinner!!! Yummy! We started off with the bruchetta (and a big glass of red wine!!)... I had two of these...
and then we each had two slices of pizza... my side had spinach, chicken, mushrooms, onions and green peppers :) Yum... check out that CRUST... droooolll...

I have got to get going and jump in the shower... so I will be back later to report the rest of date night food but before that... I haven't had the chance to share this with you all as of yet! I received my Annie's prize pack from Danica on Monday! We got LOTS of great stuff!
Maddie RIGHT away claimed what she wanted!! She loves her "bunny fruit"!
I am planning on using the bbq sauce this weekend for a couple of meals! Same with the new Mac 'n Cheese :) Annie's brand of macaroni is the only brand I buy for Maddie to eat... Awesome ingredients!! Thanks Danica!

Okay! I'm off to shower and then we're heading to the mall so I can get some new work out shoes... I'm thinking of getting some Nike Shox... Lisa and I have been doing Zumba classes (my new LOVE!) and I've heard they're awesome for that and all around workouts... so we're heading to the Nike Outlet in hopes of a good deal!

How is your weekend going so far? Any plans?


  1. you have got some mad coloring skills my friend!
    wow that grilled wrap looks rocking.

    No plans for me this weekend :) Just relaxing.

  2. Hello! New reader here!

    I love all your eats today.. that pizza is making me hungry!

  3. Oh my gosh - that Cider House Melt looks amazing! I wish I had a Roly Poly by me!!

    And AH! I passed a Mellow Mushroom when I was in Atlanta and thought it looked so good! I wasn't sure what kind of food it was but now I wish I had tried it! That pizza looks to die for!

  4. Wow! The shake looks great and very healthy. I am a big fan of shakes for weight loss. I just added you on facebook.

  5. That melt looks delicious! I thought of you and makeup mondays early today. I orded some items off of a beauty website ... I ordered some smashbox lip gloss and some bumble and bumble condtioner for super cheap. You should check it out! Have a great day!

  6. Yum!

    Love your two meal options today- I've not been to Roly Poly in a long time but I love it!

    And, Mellow Mushroom is awesome!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  7. looks like you're having a fabulous weekend :) We had a roly poly up near I want to school and I loved that place! Great gets from Mellow Mushroom too (one of our fav restaurants). Enjoy the rest of your weekend chica ;)

  8. Haha Kailey - Thanks girl ;) I get LOTS of practice with a 3 year old in the house!

    April! Hey there! So glad you stopped by! The pizza is ALWAYS amazing at Mellow Mushroom :) You will see that lots on here... we go there a little too often :)

    Cait - you look like you had a TON of awesome food in GA... but if you ever visit again, yes - do go to MM!! They actually have a ton more than just pizza... sandwiches, calzones, salads... but I have to say I never can get anything else... haha

    Emmett - thanks for stopping by! I do love having shakes for breakfast or snacks!

    Erin! Hey!!! Wow.. thank you for the website!!! I actually need more of my Bumble and Bumble stuff... so I am off to check it out now!!! What did you think of the Smashbox gloss? I haven't tried any of their lip products!

    Hey Angie :) I had not been to Roly Poly in awhile myself! It's only a few minutes away from my office, too :)

    Erica! We obviously love MM, too :) A little too much.. haha :)

  9. Mandy, looks like a super fun date night!! Kyra, would be so freaked with excitement if we got a package like that. She loves Annies!! Lovin the coloring and the smoothie. I have yet to find frozen cherries :(. Will have to make a special trip to WH or TJs for that.


  10. Wow.. your colouring is out of this world.. ;) LOL!!! My daughter would be proud!

    Pizza looks sooo good, yum!

    Not doing much this weekend.. hanging out around the house! Went shopping for new runners though! Showin' them off on my blog, lol!
