For me at least.
This weekend is the big wedding weekend, so naturally there is tons to do between now and Saturday, for example, manicures and pedicures! But again, we get ahead of ourselves, let’s start where we left off this morning…
After a busy morning, I grabbed a quick, healthy on-the-go lunch from Kowalski’s, my neighborhood upscale grocer. Their salad bar is FABULOUS! Today, I decided on a small side salad (spinach, beets, carrots, tomato, sprouts, 1/2 hardboiled egg, golden raisins and sunflower seeds with a drizzle of balsamic + EVOO) along with a variety pack of brown rice sushi (veggie roll, crab roll, some other roll with seafood). I downed the whole delicious thing.
There happened to be peanut butter cookies (my fave!) in the break room today…dangerous territory!
After work, I had a buncha errands to run, so I kept myself fueled with a slew of snacks. First, it was a Chocolate Chip Clif Bar (really good!) on my way to go shopping…
Then it was a little trail mix while I was shopping/running errands/reading magazines at the drug store (I can’t help it – it’s one of my true guilty pleasures!). I ate about 3/4 of the bag (3 servings?)…
Then it was manicure/pedicure time with my lover Jamie! Nothing like getting primped with your girls! Woowoo – I don’t get these as often as I would like, but man, those hand and foot massages are the best. When I was teaching in Thailand, we would get manis & pedis for like $3 and 90-minute (yes, an hour and a half!) foot massages with pressure points for like $5. My quality of life definitely went down when I moved back home to the U.S. of A..
Now, I am back home, relaxing and enjoying some honey graham crackers with a little bit of crack aka raw almond butter. What can I say? I’m addicted! (Plus, it’s one of the few remaining foods left in the kitchen!).
Now it’s off to check more off the to-do list and get ready for a fun-filled wedding weekend!!! No work tomorrow – give it up!
Do you love weddings as much as I do? I’m sooo excited!
