It’s been a long one.

We made it, I can’t believe it.

At the beginning of this week I went through a traumatic event in my life. While I still am technically going through it, things are looking so much better. And it is only because I have the best mom EVER! :mrgeen:

Long story short. This week seemed like it went on and on and on. This weekend’s plans include…

  • Friday night: Sleepover at Mike’s parents with Petrie.
  • Saturday: Take Petrie to the vet, take her to PetsMart, play with Petrie and then maybe see some friends.
  • Sunday: Hang out with Petrie (yes, again!) and apple orchard maybe.

Why am I hanging out with Petrie so much? Well, of course because she in my puppy, but also because my mom did yet another amazing thing. She is taking Petrie back to Texas with her next week when she comes here on business and saving Mike and I about $700. This woman is incredible, it brings tears to my eyes thinking how lucky I am.

Anyyyyway. I did a session this morning: Yoga for Runners. And you know the whole time I was thinking about this…



Yep, I went for a cinnamon chip scone again last week. These are hands down my favorite that I have tried. I may just have to go for this flavor again today. I have been surprised that they haven’t had a pumpkin flavor! Maybe today, and then maybe I would change my mind about the flavor I wanted.


Lunch today is leftovers from last night.  Since we were over at Mike’s parents house for quite some time, they offered to bring us home dinner.  Of course we didn’t argue.  They were picking up take-out from Big Bowl, a Chinese/Thai restaurant here in Minnesota.

I hadn’t eaten there in ages.  Once I looked at the menu, I knew exactly what I wanted.

From the menu:

yellow curry vegetable with tofu
bok choy, green beans, seasonal vegetables, yellow coconut curry sauce

Yellow Curry Vegetable with Tofu- bok choy, green beans, seasonal vegetables, yellow coconut curry sauce.

It came with rice, however, I substituted rice for noodles.  I would choose noodles over rice any day, hands down.  Even better, Big Bowl has whole wheat noodles.  (Sorry, I got a little curry on the sticker, haha.)




This dish was excellent. The tofu on the other hand, not so great. It seemed barely cooked even. That was okay in my book, they filled my portion with plenty of veggies!

K, I’m off to work and to get my SCONE!

What are you up to this weekend? Do you have anything exciting to look forward to? I am going to LA to visit my brother next Wednesday night through Sunday!
