Pizza = Love

We just wanted something easy for lunch since we were going out for pizza tonight. I heated up some turkey chili and put some sour cream and light mexican shredded cheese.  We actually got the idea from Chili’s skillet queso.  Mmm!


We read some.  Here is me no makeup and wet hair reading in my Snuggie!


Then, we went to Mellow Mushroom with Jake + Jennifer and their sweet baby Kai tonight.  I love their pizza.  We have a relationship.  Pizza + me = Pure Happiness.


House special. I picked the sausage off yuck!


I wanted Miller 64, but they didn’t carry that so here is Old Faithful.


And a bunch of pictures of Kai are in your future…



Brandon and Kai.  He was so squirmy.  Kai that is, not Brandon!



Love this face!



Jennifer and Kai 🙂





Here is the funniest part of the evening.  Toby, their Min Pin, loves to warm himself by the fire.  He kept rotating around to get every side!  Too cute!


The night ended with me playing some of this



We may be drinking some champagne to bring in the New Year, but who knows?  We may just end up going to bed!

I didn’t have to be at work until 10am this morning!  It twas wonderful.  I unfortunately got a phone call at 8 this am, otherwise I could have slept later.  I hate hate hate morning noise/phone calls.  Anyway…

This morning I had a little more time to photograph my breakfast.

Every morning I start off with this guy.

I usually drink this along with an Amazing Grass packet dissolved in soy milk.

I had a little more time this morning so I made myself a bowl of organic Whole Foods cereal in soy milk.

And then I had to get together a few items for lunch:

A gala apple: this one didn’t get eaten

This afternoon at work was BUH-IS-SSSSSYYY!  I am so glad it is the weekend.  Tomorrow I find out what is wrong with my car at 9am and how much money I have to shell out for the squeaky noise.  I am almost positive it is my front brakes.

This it’s off to the grocery store and then to get my thyroid checked at the Drs.  I hate having to get bloodwork, but it’s to keep me healthy!  I hope my packages arrive soon. Have a good Friday all!

What a tangled web…

Tonight it was this yummy pizza idea.  Spinach and margarita pizza from TJ’s.  Wednesday’s are our usually easy day of eating.  It is hump day and we are both exhausted. I, thankfully, do not have to be into work until 10 tomorrow. 

I will probably pricing brake pads.  My front driver’s side is squeaking every time I break.  ugh!  I hate car trouble.  There is no getting out of car trouble when you need a car everyday to drive to and from work.  Brakes are just one of those things that you cannot live without! 

While I was waiting for the pizza to cook, I skimmed through the newest issue of Cooking Light.

Then it was pizza time!

We also had a little organic creamy ranch on the side.

And of course, with pizza, comes beer!  It was pumpkin beer!  There is a special place in my heart for anything PUMPKIN!

It was from Trader Joe’s and was so yummy.  I am partial to light beers, but this was really good. 

Then we saw the worst creatures outside.  SPIDERS!  SO GROSS!

pics2009 406

There were two with huge webs by our front door. Yuck!

Luckily, the husband came to the rescue!

He knocked them down with our outdoor broom. Thank goodness.  We usually go out the garage door, otherwise we would have noticed sooner.

Tonight we are watching Glee and doing laundry (boring).  Then I am going to read some more of Lovely Bones and go to sleep.  I didn’t sleep very well last night.  It was one of those nights were I saw the clock every 30 minutes. Can’t  wait to catch up on sleep!

This morning I woke up with a sore throat.  Last night we went to Mellow Mushroom (the best pizza place eva!) and some of my crust went down wrong and scraped the heck out of my throat! yikes!  No fun.  Oh well, I guess I’m going to need some Advil before I eat anything! 

I am making my TJ’s breakfast blend coffee to go ask I type and I am getting really for another work week.  It is quite chilly here in NC and there was a frost advisory last night.  Thank God we have a garage now and I don’t have to scrap or warm up the car like I did when we were in the apartment!

I hope everyone makes it through their Mondays! See you tonight for a special recipe!

Weekend Recap

This weekend has gone by way way too fast. Per usual.  The work week is sooooooooooo long and then the weekend goes by like lightening.

Here is Friday’s nights recap.  Went to Chilis and got the 3 for 20 deal.  All of the pictures were blurry. We got skillet queso, I got the big mouth bites (ate 2 out of four) and the molten chocolate cake (heaven!).

Saturday we went to Cracker Barrel and I got the Oatmeal meal with bananas, two slices of wheat toast with no sugar grape jelly.  It was so good.


I got hungry right around 2:00.  We went to the Parade of Homes at noon and saw some of the most fancy/expensive homes.  I love our home and some of the same features we had built in were in the Parade homes.  Maybe our home could be on the list one day-wishful thinking right?

I ate a bowl of organic Whole Foods cereal and a banana and a couple sips of this Vitamin Water.


My friend Shelby and I then went to two consignment stores that her coworkers had told her about.  One was called “Pass it On” and all of their proceeds went to a local women’s shelter which made me want to shop there even more.  I bought two sweaters.  We then went to another consignment store called “My Girlfriend’s Closet,” which was a cute little house with different rooms full of clothes.  I bought a pair of American Eagle jeans and a shirt.  I spend about $32 dollars for the whole trip.  Pretty exciting!

We came home to Shelby’s husband James, my hubby, and his parents watching the football game.  The husband and I went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner.  They have hands down the BEST pizza ever.  The crust alone is amazing.  We started with our old faithful Bud Lights (one each) and a half order of the parmesean pretzels.

We ordered a medium pepperoni pizza.  So good.  Worth every calorie.  We don’t get this much since it’s a little far away, but it is worth the drive.

This morning I bought some bread and bananas at Harris Teeter and stopped by McDonald’s for lunch.  This time they got my Southwest Salad correct! I only used half of the dressing.  I had to repeat my order 3 TIMES!!!! ugh!!!


I am not sure what we are doing later on.  I have every intention on taking a nap.  See you later!

I’m a cleaning machine

I am finally finished cleaning my house.  I started at about 8:30 and worked until around 12 straight.  My house looks great.  Of course, there is always more ways I could organize, but that can wait.  You could eat off of any surface in my house it is so clean!

Before cleaning I hate a bowl of Whole Foods Apple Cinnamon Morning O’s and unsweetened skim milk. I also had a cup of Organic Valley chocolate soy milk after. This is the first best chocolate soy milk I have tried.  It is absolutely delicious.  I also bought this at Whole Foods if you are looking for a new soy milk. 


After all of my cleaning I stopped for some leftover Little Caesars pizza.  I ate two pieces…hey, it could be worse!


And had to deal with this bad cute cat all day.  She has really gotten to big for her britches with jumping on everything!!


Yep, that is Zoey in our couch!

Tonight, I have a yummy dinner planned, so check back for the recipe!!
