Entertainment

Weekends seriously aren’t long enough. Whoever made the rule we should work 5 days and only be off 2, clearly had no job.

Unfortunately Adam had to work all weekend so it was up to me to entertain myself for part of the day. I started off with a trip to Trader Joe’s… I was honestly shocked at how much I got for $67!!

I thought the cashier forgot to ring up some items but I’m just THAT good of a shopper 😉

But then I went to Target and bought 9 things for about 80 dollars so that was a FAIL. Oh well, you can’t win them all.

I headed to Michaels after Target to buy some things for a project I saw on Pinterest .

Patterned Scrapbook paper, Sticker letters and a 8 collage frame equals:

Our new menu dry erase board! It’s so cute and I love it! I have lots of paper and letters leftover so I’m thinking of making something else. Ideas?

After the pinterest project I headed to LA Sunset to be airbrushed. I won a free airbrushing session ($55) last weekend and I never turn down a tan!

Although I may be a little too tan? :/

Crafting, grocery shopping and tanning sure do work up an appetite so I decided to make some pizza. I got the idea from Cooking Light – I absolutely love their recipes!

Started off with a whole wheat thin crust pre-cooked dough (I’ve been having a rough time with raw dough lately 😦 )

Spread with organic tomato and basil marinara and added pepperoni (adams) to half of the pie

I then sauteed up the following veggies w/ garlic/evoo and added them to the pizza: corn, asparagus, red pepper and onions

Sprinkle some crushed red peppers and add some fresh mozz

Bake for 8 minutes

MMM MMM good. Dear Cooking Light – Please make a fall version ASAP.

After the pizza deliciousness we headed to Yogurtland. What would a weekend be without a little dessert??

Yes, this was the line to get into a fr0-yo place!! Did I mention it was 50 degrees outside? People (we) are crazy.

We made the wait worth it and loaded up.

Our eyes may have been bigger than our stomachs?

so what’s in the cup bigger than my head? Oatmeal Cookie fro-yo, strawberry cheesecake fro-yo, cookies and cream fro-yo and red velvet cupcake batter fro-yo with way too many toppings to name 🙂

If you have a yogurtland near you GET the Oatmeal Cookie. Adam and I agreed this was the best fro-yo we’ve had…and we’ve had A LOT of fro-yo.

Now it’s time for bed – with the windows open! Weeeee.

QUESTIONS: Who else is addicted to pinterest?

Winning Weekend

Hope you all had a great weekend! It went by way too fast but that seems to be the norm these days as it’s already mid September and I feel like I was just here a couple of weeks ago…

This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunrise

It made me feel better about the weekend ending.

Our weekend was great as always. I’m a huge football fan and the Redskins played the Giants (the team Adam likes) on Sunday so I threw spicy turkey chili in the crockpot

got our game gear on

and watched the redskins spank the giants bootay!

I did feel bad for my boyfriend so I made him some fresh brownies and added some fro-yo on top.

Good food is the way to a mans heart! Remember that ladies 🙂

Before I served up dessert we ate our bowls of chili with a hefty scoop of plain greek yogurt and some healthy Honey Cornbread

I make my cornbread with applesauce instead of oil, almond milk instead of regular milk and egg whites instead of a whole egg. I also drizzle some agave nectar over the muffins before they bake.

They turn out perfect! Here is the recipe i use.

Sorry, I got so excited about Sunday I forgot to mention Saturday.

We woke up early and headed to a charity event I had set-up at work.

I’m so lucky to have a supportive boyfriend!

Since he woke up early to go into work with me on a Saturday I agreed to attending the italian street festival

Adam loves pictures.

He played lots of games

and ate lots of food

Sicilian steak sandwich and swedish fish slushie! I had a few bites of both – we shared wings earlier and I was still stuffed.

Things we didn’t indulge on:

Fried Oreos.

I’m usually all about the crazy sweets but this honestly grossed me out. Anyone ever had one??

We headed to the mall to find me some boots and became ravenous while shopping. What’s it about shopping that makes you so hungry? Everywhere had a line but Johnny Rockets…joy. Since we were trying to be healthy after our lunch I ordered a salad

Romaine, dried cranberries, almond slivers and grilled chicken

But I guess Adam didn’t get the healthy memo..

eek. That boy loves his meat.

Since I was so healthy at dinner I wanted some fro-yo

I can finally say I’ve been to 16 handles! I think it may be my favorite fro-yo place so far… Now for the questions of the day – Can you guess which one is mine? What is the name of your favorite place to get fro-yo?
