Girls Mid-Week Dinner Out

Happy Humpday!

This week has been blowing by, which I’m pretty excited about because it means that warm weather is almost here. 🙂 I can’t wait to start wearing some of my warm weather clothes! The skirts, the flip flops, the shorts, the bathing suits! I’ve been enjoying the occasional warm day here and there, but I’m ready for warm weather all the time. Who’s with me?


Breakfast in my beautiful Anthropologie bowl!


Fresh Market Spring Blend…yum yum!




Date and almond oatmeal with flaxseed meal and chia seeds. Yum!


I prepped lunch this morning while my oatmeal cooked away on the stove


Seedy AB+J (Almond Butter + Jelly) Sammie

It’s sort of like Power Toast in sandwich form, with sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds. Also Barney Butter and Earthfare Organic pomegranate jelly.


Toasted Seedy AB+J Sandwich with semi-steamed organic broccoli.


I prepped the organic broccoli last night (rinsed and chopped) and then added about 1 tbsp water to the container and microwaved for about 1.5 minutes. I like my broccoli both raw and steamed and this was somewhere in between.


I just added a little salt to the broccoli.


I toasted my sandwich…


…and cut it into a triangle b/c they’re more fun to eat that way.


Yerba Mate tea #1 (a bit of cream and sugar)


Yerba Mate tea #2 (sugar)



Next up, we headed out for a bloggie get-together at Cafe Central.


Kath, Michelle, Kelsey, Lauren, and Kate (not pictured yet) met up for a ladies mid-week dinner.





Kath sampled 2 wines and and I went with her choice – Pure Chardonnay.






Michelle took my picture – thanks hun!


Some people at the table ordered the sweet potato springs rolls – the same kind Kelsey and I shared last time I was here (click).


For my eats, I went with a side salad with white balsamic vinaigrette…


Plus a grilled cheese sandwich with fries. I can’t wait till Lent is over because this place has some amazing looking burgers!




Two cheeses! I loved the combo of cheeses, but no bread compares to Great Harvest!!


Group shot!

So great seeing friends mid-week! It’s like a lil boost to get you through the work-week.

I’m hoping to WFH tomorrow but I’m supposed to be getting an email upgrade tonight, so I hope it works! Eek! Wish me luck or I’ll be going to the office after all! lol

Project Hydrate Day #17

I did ok today. I really think about 5 cups of water and 2 cups of hot tea are about all I’m good for during the work day. I forgot to do my morning cup of water, so I’m one cup less than yesterday. Doh!


  • 5 cups water
  • 2 cups hot tea
  • 1 glass wine (ok this doesn’t count…whatever!)

How are you doing with Project Hydrate?


The discussion board on my Facebook page is really getting good – check it out and voice in on the conversation.

I’ve started a FAQ page. It’s actually been up for a couple days, but you may not have noticed it. I’m collecting my most popular questions and have more to add, but until then – feel free to ask some more on my Formspring page.

Be sure to check out my Recipe page, too!

Reader Question: Do you see your friends mid-week or only on the weekends?

  1. I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now but just got to comment. It took me awhile to read all your posts, it’s lovely and chic! Just love your pictures and the bowl! Will be back for more.

  2. I adore that bowl from anthropologie!! They always have the cutest things from bowls to summer dresses. It looks like you had a great time at the blogger meet up! Enjoy your day! xoxo

  3. Hey there!
    I started reading your blog after your bake sale for Haiti. (I clicked on the sale from someone else’s blog) and I love it. Just wanted to say that your dishes are SO cute and you look great in pink and khaki 🙂 Have a great day!

  4. Your food pictures always look so freaking good- photog school must be amazing- and fun!

    Looks like a great night out- my tip on hydrating (I drink about 3L a day) is to polish off a liter before breakfast- yes it’s tough, but start with 1-2 glasses and work your way up- it’s so important!

  5. It totally depends on the week. I have a lot of friends who train for triathlons like me so we try to get in a bike ride together during the week and a long run on the weekends together. 😉

    I love your photos! Gorgeous. I just bought a new camera (DSLR, I think), and I’ve been too afraid to use it! I need to start though if I’m going to get my money’s worth!

  6. Looks like last night was a lot of fun!!! When I was a kid I thought that a sandwich half was bigger when it was cut diagonally rather than in half! A few weeks ago my mom was making sandwiches and joked “are you hungry? I can cut it in half…but if you are REALLY hungry i’ll cut it diagonally for you.” lol
