I haven’t gotten to the gym as much as I wanted to last week – but I’ve done a ton of walking and I’ve been eating better. There have been some slip ups – but I’m eating half more than whole these days. I’ve skipped fries in favor of vegetable soup. These things are steps in the right direction.
Also – it’s been fun. I mean – look how cute these sandwich thins are!!!
This is roasted chicken breast, spinach, red bell pepper, onions and fresh mozzarella. Tomato soup with spinach and goat cheese. This is what you can do with a can of Campbell’s!Roasted chicken, brown rice, tomato paste, yellow bell peppers, peas, spinach, fresh mozzarella.
Dave and I went to Philadelphia for the weekend. We spent some time with his parents and some time just running around the city.
I had a lovely time.
On Saturday I had the best pretzel ever at Miller’s Twist at the…. Dave wants to come back for Scrapplefest. I, unfortunately, have plans that weekend. Drats!We bought some yummy treats at Di Bruno Bros. Market. 3 types of cheese, homemade pepperoni and soppressata. After a looooooong walk we ended up at Bridget Foy’s. Dave liked these chairs. We started with hummus. Dave and I split this delicious burger – we even left some of the fries.
And also this Mac & Cheese. We still have some left over. And it was just as good as it looks. More even. It had a potato chip crust!
We walked some more.
Then we headed over to the Flower Show. We were met with a free wine tasting as we walked in but sadly there was nothing special about any of the wines we tasted. :( Disappointing. At one point I told Dave I’d rather stop tasting and wait and get a good glass of wine later. That’s how mediocre it was.
The flowers however were pretty amazing. It had a French theme. This just doubly confirms how much I need to go to France. I’ll let most of the pics speak for themselves. These purses (and pictures) are made with pressed flowers. So cool. A Bonsai Tree – which was not made by a 180 year old man trained for 5 years – but is a 180 year old tree trained for 5 years. :) There was also Antique shopping, drinks at the Ritz, a delicious Italian dinner, and a Penn State basketball victory. And about 6 ish miles of walking throughout the day.
Pretty much perfect.
Stay tuned for some blog housekeeping, such as me flipping a coin to award Cheerios, and the great possibility of a video post starring me and Mora.
Hope you all had a good weekend. Be back shortly.
I promise. :)
