King and Queen

This weekend was a good one. I may or may not have a food hangover from last night… Adam and I ate like King’s (and Queens) this entire weekend.

Saturday morning we got up early to run errands.. Ok, so really we only ran one errand and then hit up the outlets. I sent a batch of these to Miss Shanna.She sent me a pair of shoes in return

I think I won that swap 😉 These shoes are HOT.

After we dropped off the cookies we headed straight to shopping!

Adam’s a really good shopping partner. He doesn’t pick out the same skirt to try on as I do, he tells me that I look beautiful in EVERYTHING and he doesn’t complain about going in every store. He just asks for my iphone to play angry birds and finds a seat near the dressing room.

We did A LOT of shopping so it’s fair to say we worked up quite the appetite when we were done. We headed into the food court and found a place called Greean Leaf’s & Bananas.

We split the Acai & Blueberry Smoothie and I ordered a chicken and avocado wrap. I wrapped up half in a to go box and ate half  there.

Twas yummy.

After our big day of shopping we met Adam’s parents down the shore for some dinner at Shrimp Box. We called ahead so it wasn’t too bad of a wait. We all ordered seafood dishes that were extremely tasty. When we were done they offered to get ice cream… I clearly didnt decline 😉

I ordered that peanut buttery goodness. I highly suggest you get to a DQ and order this because it’s only available this August.

After our indulgent treats the night before we needed a good sweat! Adam and I went to the gym around 2 and worked out for a little over an hour. I threw some ribs in the crock pot earlier so when we got home the smell had taken over our teeny tiny apartment.

We waited a little bit before digging in but it was WELL worth it.


Ribs, Baked Potato, Salad AND

Sweet Potato Biscuits!

I had these for the first time in North Carolina and have wanted to recreate them since. I did a pretty good job because even though we were stuffed to the brim we still made room for one of these.

Oh, and this.

I swear we have separate compartments in our stomach that allow room for dessert. So, yeah I’m not doing too well on one of my goals… But I’m starting fresh today!

I’m starting my first day on the job today and was thinking of wearing this J. Crew dress.

Like my curtsy? Our mirror fell down and I didn’t have the patience to mess with it this morning.

Wish me luck!! Recipe for these coming tomorrow 🙂

QUESTIONS: Does anyone else feel like they ALWAYS have room for dessert?

RA ah ah ah ah

I have been a HORRIBLE blogger lately. Forgive me? I have a feeling that will change next week when I’m jobless and bored though. Next thing you know you will be overloaded with 3 posts a day from me and you will wish I was still a horrible blogger 😉

Since we last talked (read?) I was heading out with my girlfriends for one last night out before my move. We started out at RA Sushi which happens to be my favorite sushi of all time! They have exciting rolls such as:

Viva Las Vegas

Crazy Monkey Roll

Mango Lobster Roll

Viva Las Vegas (to die for)

RA is a chain sushi restaurant so if you have one near you definitely check it out… They also have the best fried ice cream but alcohol and dessert usually don’t go together for me so I had to pass!


Two things I learned. 1.) My friends are like really really pretty. 2.) Never buy another dress. Rent the Runway never disappoints.

Obsessed with the dress I can’t afford.

The next day I spent recovering with my family… They made my favorite foods 🙂

Sweet Summertime.

My plate – Pre 2 chocolate chip cookies and a serving or two of “THE DESSERT” (recipe to come in the near future) Post – eating my weight in crackers & cheese, pita chips & hummus, more shrimp and baked ruffles with greek yogurt french onion dip. When I stuff myself silly I tend to get a little silly.

Or maybe that’s normal. I really don’t know anymore.

Today I met up with my friend Christina who wasn’t able to make it to my last night out. We had lunch plans at a restaurant I’ve been dying to try for about a year.

Lure’s Bar & Grille in Crownsville, MD is owned by a married couple.

It’s small, comfortable and cute.

We sipped on some wine and tangerine crushes while we browsed the menu…

I ordered the “Best Turkey Sandwich Ever”

Fresh sliced turkey, havarti cheese, bacon, avocado, spinach and red onion with honey mustard. It came with a side of sweet potato fries that I dipped in old bay. Ahhh heaven.

Christina ordered the next best thing on the menu… Pulled Pork!

That is one stacked sandwich. I tried it (obviously) and it was DELICIOUS. The food is fresh and doesn’t make you feel bleh when you leave. They also add a goldfish to every meal as presentation which I thought was super cute.

Good wine, good food and good company 🙂

Thanks for lunch Chrissy ❤

Other than these 3 days my life has been pretttty boring these past 3 weeks. I’ve been eating quick meals and trying to get rid of the food I have without going to the grocery store.

Eating huge bowls of cereal while I’m driving at stop signs.

Taking leftover grilled chicken and making buffalo chicken sandwiches or bbq chicken tortilla pizzas. Anything to not eat plain chicken over and over again 😉

I’m almosttt done packing (this doesn’t include my storage unit!)

and my boyfriend will be SO proud that I’ve gotten rid of A LOT of clothes – this bag comes up to my chest!

I’m going to end my boring Saturday night with a cup of Tasti D-Lite in honor of one of my best friend’s birthday’s!

If you can’t be with em… Eat dessert for em 😉

Happy Birthday Ash!

Countdown til I move: 4 days!!

QUESTIONS: How do you recover from a big night out?
