A Nice Surprise

Happy Saturday! What’s on your agenda for the day? I have a mini girls day planned than absolutely nothing to do. I hope you have a fantastic day 🙂


Guys I’m the biggest creature of habit with breakfast. Are you all bored of me telling you that I ate scrambled eggs and toast? It’s just the perfect way for me to start my day since it’s filling but doesn’t leave me feeling heavy. In all seriousness, if you have never put cream cheese on toast I recommend it. Alex thinks I’m a little weird for it but whatever!


I started a new book at lunch called “They Both Die at the End” by Adam Silvera. The title intrigued me so I picked it up from the library last weekend. It’s about a society where people receive a phone call on the day they are going to die to tell them. It follows two teenage boys (17 and 18) who become last friends on their final day. I’ll let you know my thoughts when I finish! Right after lunch, I hit a total wall at work since I only got about 4 hours of sleep Thursday night. I made myself some tea to perk up and get through the afternoon.


I went to the grocery store after work and came home to see this guy sitting at the table! You guys, he never gets home before me anymore! It was the perfect way to start my weekend and he had unloaded the dish washer and cleaned up from breakfast so I didn’t have to. We chatted while putting the groceries away and caught up on our days.


When we started get hungry, I got brown rice cooking and took everything out for burrito bowls. We opted to not have meat so I used refried beans (I was black bean-ed out after having it for 3 meals this week), brown rice, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and salsa to make burrito bowls. For anyone keeping track, Friday was my third day in a row eating vegetarian. Who am I?! I told Alex that I didn’t even choose to not eat meat so I could potentially survive on a vegetarian diet but could never go vegan.

I promise it was much prettier when I first made it!

Since it’s December and we leave for my parents house on the 20th, it’s crunch time for our Christmas movie list. We decided to watch “Elf” so we got cozy on the couch before turning it on. There was still leftover birthday cake from Alex and his sister’s birthday a month ago in our freezer. We took it out to defrost and enjoyed the last little bit for dessert during the movie. Once the movie ended, we hung out a little longer before heading to bed.

Question of the day: What did you have for dinner last night?

  1. Alex looks just like my husband when he works from home, whiskey included! What a nice surprise. I had sushi last night that was amazing. Have a great weekend!


  2. I love burrito bowls! I’m attempting to re-create my Chipotle order for food prep this week, so hopefully it’s as good! And we love hearing the veg diet love :). It’d probably be impossible for me to 100% give up dairy though. I love ALL the cheese!
    That book sounds really good, and different!
    Hope you had a great girls day!

    1. I’m sure your bowl will be just as good! I have nothing against a veg diet! I’m just picky and eating meat helps me to get the necessary nutrients I need 🙂 I totally agree, I could never give up cheese.
      The book is great and I’m excited to see where it goes at the end. The manicure was a perfect start to the weekend, well perfect after a nice 6 mile run 😉
