Oh, Wine

I didn’t post last night because this happened:

My awesome friend, Jess, came over with a bottle of wine to celebrate a few big things that have happened in my life recently. I don’t want to discuss them on the blog just yet, but I will soon, promise.

Here’s a blurry pic of Jess from last night:

She may kill me for posting it but I think it’s a cute pic. Behind Jess’ head is my calendar that I write absolutely EVERYTHING on. It helped me get through my last school semester with a clear head and it’s helping me stay on target with my internship this summer. Do you write everything on a calendar?

Anyway, I had to be in Saratoga  at 9:00 for my internship yesterday morning, so I woke up and scarfed down a bowl of sickeningly sweet banana oats.

I usually love adding overripe bananas to my oats but yesterday it was too much. I couldn’t finish the bowl.

Even though I didn’t finish breakfast, I was surprisingly full until around 11:30. There are so many great places to eat in Saratoga but I packed lunch and snacks to save money.

  • Leftover Buitoni Four Cheese Ravioli from Monday night.
  • Watermelon
  • Feed Blueberry-Almond Granola
  • Baby carrots with PB

I ate half of the bag of granola for a snack around 11:30. Then, I had the ravioli and one piece of  watermelon for lunch at 2. The ravioli was actually better reheated than it was when we first made it.

My lunch kept me full for the rest of the day. I didn’t even break into my carrots and PB snack.

Jeff and I decided to celebrate some of my recent accomplishments  last night by making tacos. I stopped at the store on the way home to pick up the essentials:

I whipped up some homemade guac while Jeff heated the refried beans

I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of refried beans. I don’t like the consistency. I’d rather bite into full cooked beans.

I filled two corn tortillas with refried beans, sauteed onion, salsa, and guac. We were out of cheese, but I didn’t miss it.

I had watermelon, corn, and a couple baked scoops on the side.  Another light and summery dinner!

For dessert, I had a small slice of blueberry cake from Saturday.

And then, of course, wine.

Ten minutes later…

Oh boy…

I’m off to a spin class.

Have you celebrated any major accomplishments lately?

Have a great Wednesday! <3

Confession: I may or may not have inhaled 1/2 of an arnold whole wheat sandwich thin and a couple bites of this chocolately granola bar type thing that Seth brought over for Jess after he got out of work. 🙂
