Hello loves! Well…we enjoyed ONE day of sunshine and warmth here in Boston this weekend- unfortunately the 60 degree heat wave was very short-lived!!
I was beyond ecstatic to walk around in a thin, long-sleeve jacket on Friday, and except for all of the dirty snow banks….you could almost taste Spring in the air!! :D I.cannot.wait.
I woke up early on Friday for work training, luckily I’m working at an indoor pool!
Pumpkin oats w/almond butter= current fave!!
I packed my lunch to bring to the training, thank goodness! The director never said anything about feeding us, OR giving us a break to get food…so when we finally did get a 15-min break at 2pm…I was the only one with food to scarf down
I’m so grateful that I’m at a point in my life, where I know myself and my body well enough to plan ahead for situations like that, and not be embarrassed to bring lunch, or just assume that food will be available or convenient. Not to mention a great way to save some dollaz!! Everyone else was super-jealous that I had lunch + snacks…I def shared though, great way to make new friends ;D
Lunch: un-pictured snack pack of pita, string cheeses, HB eggs, and salad- totes GC style!!
My friend came in on Friday from NYC, she took the bus and got in right after my work training- perfect timing!
We had a little snack before walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the sunshine.
TJ’s Organic Honey Crunch n’ Oats (with Cottage cheese)
My Review: kind of a lame imitation of Honey Bunches of Oats, just okay!
My roommate had the brilliant idea of making chicken lettuce wraps for din!
We just sauteed chicken, then added broccoli slaw, cabbage and mushrooms in a Thai peanut sauce- all wrapped in Bibb Lettuce.
Delisssshhhh (I also added some TJ’s frozen shumai dumplings for fun!)
I took my girlfriend to Newbury Street after dinner to show her around and window shop. The warm temp’s just reminded me of Newbury Street during summer, eating on the patio and window shopping on a sunny day, ahhh I can’t wait!!
We ended the night with J.P.Lick’s…always a good choice
Mint Oreo Chip + Cow Trax (vanilla ice cream w/fudge and PB cups)
She had to leave Saturday, unfortunately…but also good because I had to finish a bunch of chem HW! I hung out Saturday night with some friends, went to church on Sunday, and then caught up with some other friends :)
It’s snowing again today, ARGH….what is up!!? I am soooo excited to head home to CA on Tuesday- see some family and friends, get some Mexican food..and fro yo of course!! :D I am just praying that it is somewhat sunny when I get there, I heard it’s raining right now :/ Oh well I’ll still take it….
Hope you guys had a great long weekend…..my favorite part about 3-day weekends is always the obligatory 4-day week that follows!! ;D
Enjoy it friends!!
