Comfort Food, Martinis, and Sun-Soaking

Who’s ready for the weekend!?



I wish you guys could see how cute Bailey is when he cuddles up on the couch.


Look at those little paws!


Aww 🙂


Guess what I found in Staples the other day. Dilbert!

I wanted to buy a Dilbert calendar (every office-worker’s essential) last December, but Hubby said Santa would bring it. I guess Santa didn’t get my Christmas list this year, because the Dilbert never showed up! So, I was thrilled to find this one. I know it’s March. I still want it. 🙂


When I was catching up on older cartoons, I found this one. Looks like the Dilbert crew celebrates Bagel Day Friday, too!

I had a fabulous dinner at Dish after teaching Zumba on Thursday.


I shared some chicken and dumplings, collard greens, mac and cheese, a biscuit, and had a deviled egg for dinner. Gotta love that comfort food!


And I also shared a piece of Bourbon Vanilla Sweet Potato Pie. It wasn’t too sweet and rich without being heavy. The pie isn’t my favorite style of pie, but that’s more a personality thing than a quality of the pie. The quality was top-notch.


I busted tail this morning at work so I could take a half day.


I got my deadlines completed and met friends out for a martini lunch. I started with a tropical martini.


And I ordered a couple small plates to eat. Beet salad (with apples – so unexpectedly yummy!)


And a margharita pizette.


I decided to get froyo on the way home. The weather outside was GOR-GEOUS! I think it was around 75 degrees F with brilliant blue skies all overhead. It was definitely froyo-weather.

I have a new froyo flavor obsession. Yoforia has started doing a banana froyo made with real bananas. It tastes like a sweet and creamy banana pudding (sans cookie wafers). Omg…it’s sooo good!


In the bowl – banana froyo, strawberries, coconut, and mochi.

I was going to go to the froyo place and just eat my froyo outside of the shop. But, I decided to just take it home so I could enjoy it on the comfort of my patio. I even took Bailey out with me.


I spend so much time on the computer – for work, for blogging, for email, for almost everything…it was really nice to unplug for just a few minutes. I admired our yard, listened to the birds chirping, enjoyed the breeze, and soaked up some sun. It was glorious and so relaxing.

I also ended up going to another Zumba class. I’m on a roll! lol So, this week, I went Monday, taught Wednesday, taught Thursday, and went Friday. Phew! I have something fun and Zumba-related planned for tomorrow! Can’t wait to share more dets.

I think I may have asked this before, but since I’m seeing a lot of new commenters, what are your favorite froyo flavors…and bonus question – what are your favorite froyo toppings?!

  1. I love chocolate, vanilla, or coconut flavored yogurt… For toppings, I go ALL out – walnuts, peanuts, almonds, sprinkles, dark chocolate chips, strawberries, and a spoonful of captain crunch with berries for the extra crunch and sweetness! I want froyo now!

  2. Banana is by far my favorite “original” flavor! I really like the seasonal flavors though. Pumpkin pie, eggnog, and candy cane are my favorite. My favorite topping is hot marshmallow sauce. Unfortunately it’s always cold in Oregon! Wish it was warmer!

  3. we only have 1 froyo place where i live, and it’s not very good…but when i’m at my parents’ i always go to red mango & i LOVE their pomegranate froyo with all the fruit toppings and some chocolate chips for good measure!

  4. From a girl who used to work at a froyo/bubble tea shop, I have tried endless flavors of froyo, but my favorite is taro. IDK if you’ve ever seen it, but it is AWESOME.

    Toppings, I love coconut, toasted coconut, granola, nuts and fruits 🙂

    • Taro is one of my personal faves! I always make my friends try it when I find out they’ve never had it.

      And omg…bubble tea is one of my favorite things ever! It’s hard to find around here, though. So sad!
