Speaking of Coffee Shops…and Toads

Don’t forget to enter my O.N.E. Coconut Water Giveaway! You have until Midnight (EST) on July 26th to enter.

Speaking of my love for coffee shops, I worked in one all day yesterday, and I’m about to work in one all day today. I’m scheduling this post to go up at 3 p.m. so I’m probably making lattes as we speak.

Jeff and I went on a date last night. :-)


I had a coupon for Uno Chicago Grill and knew exactly what I wanted to order.


I love this wrap! I ordered the balsamic on the side because it usually makes the wrap too soggy, and that’s no good. No. Good.


Sadly, the wrap didn’t come with watermelon, like the description promised. Instead, I ordered the Farro Salad for my side. (Sound familiar, Courtney?)


A whole wheat grain, cooked like pasta and mixed with diced tomatoes, cucumbers and balsamic vinaigrette.

I thought the the salad was OK, not great. It had wayyy too much balsamic mixed in. I think I’m just a dressing-on-the-side type of girl. Who’s with me?

When we got home from our date, we found a TOAD hanging out on the pathway to our building.


I seem to remember this happening last year some time.  :-) (I love my blog because it allows me to search for past toad pics)

Mr Toad sat totally still and posed for a photo shoot. It was kind of ridiculous because it was pouring out and Jeff had just sprinted across the parking lot at the mall to get the car, but we were totally fine standing in the rain to take pictures of a toad.

Mr. Toad sat in the same spot even after we walked away. I laughed for ten minutes after taking this picture from my balcony:


The. End.

Do you make special requests when ordering at restaurants?

Have an awesome day! <3

PS- I might be road-tripping down to my parents’ house on August 5th so I can meet up with the girls who plan to stand outside The Today Show for Caitlin’s segment on Operation Beautiful.  Anybody interested in coming? Send me an e-mail: beccarose21[@]aol[dot]com
