The Weeks Fly By

9 May

I’m sure you can guess why I’ve been mia here – on the home stretch!! It was a busy week, so I ate a ton of meals out – not the best for healthy eating, but oh so convenient when there’s no time to cook. And also so fun during the week! On Monday, my mom and I got together to start working on the escort cards and we grabbed salads at Panera.


Tuesday, one of my bridesmaids and I grabbed dinner because she’s back in town for the summer – we went to Toast and I got my favorite little sampler of crostini. The garlic mushrooms and blue cheese is the best!


And Wednesday, Matt and I took a dance lesson! It was fun, but a bit overwhelming when I realized that the wedding is in 3 weeks and we have no plan for a first dance. Plus, I’m a terrible dancer and I’m really not looking forward to having people look at me! We ended up back at Panera because it was so close:)

Today’s weather was awesome – we’ve been having chilly temps and weird skies, and it finally felt like summer when I went for a jog this evening. I returned to the kitchen and threw together mexican pizzas with refried’s and habanero cheese – such a simple combo, but so good.
Tomorrow kicks off graduation weekend, which means family and lots of fun activities! Have a good one.

Hi Friends,

This weekend has been quite relaxing so far. Honestly, today has been most settled I’ve felt since the move back in June. All our furniture is here and the only thing we have left to do is hang a million pictures. My body also seems to be adjusting to my work schedule because I actually had the energy to go out last night.

Matt and I walked over to Toast, a little cafe on Main St. that pairs imported Italian meats with fresh local ingredients to make amazing sandwiches.


I ordered a panini with portobellos, fontina, tomato and arugula.

It was divine, but Matt’s kale, ricotta, and sweet and spicy pickled peppers panini won my heart. We ended up trading fourths. I experience food envy often.


And thanks to a giftcard from Matt’s mom, our dinner was free!! Thanks, Candace. We’ll definitely be going back because there are many more combinations I want to try and it’s so close to our apt.

After dinner, we walked over to Central Park to say hi to my dad (he was listening to free blues in the park) and then we met some new friends for drinks at West End wine bar. I obviously went with a German riesling, although my second drink was a Fat Tire because wine was making me too thirsty. Our evening was filled with good conversation and then deep slumber.

Today has included a treadmill run, a Trader Joe’s visit, and a trip to DSW for new flats for work. Now it’s Saturday night, and you guessed it, I’m about to pop a brew and then go out to dinner. Enjoy the evening.
