Grease is the word

26 Feb

So, the plan last night was to go out for my co-workers birthday and have two beers then peace out.

Of course, that didn’t happen.

We celebrated, bitched about work and naturally bonded.  I love that I have such cool co-workers but am going to be leaving my job in a couple of months.

And the shirt? BCBG found at Goodwill for $4-holla!

Around beer #3 , these made an appearance

Now I’m not a shot kinda girl but when someone brings out a shot called a Purple Skittle, I’m instantly intrigued.

And you know what? It really tasted like a purple skittle, it was fantastic! So beer #4 and #5 happened after that and I was in no shape to drive so I cabbed it home and tried to find some drunk food to feast on. Unfortunately, I don’t keep any drunk food at home so it consisted of hummus and crackers. Not too exciting of drunk food but it did the trick and soon it was sleepy time.

I woke up this morning and felt ill. Not like pukey ill but ill as in my head was pounding, I was operating at a slower pace than normal and my stomach did not feel well. Of course Lincoln was extra hyper this morning because he likes to torture me sometimes. we went for a walk and then I called one of my co-workers to see if they would take me to my car. I got to my car and needed grease ASAP so I went to a local diner, grabbed a paper, sipped on coffee and feasted on a french toast, eggs and sausage special for only $4.95. Why hello cheap, greasy food, please get in my belly!

Ate every last bite of both plates. It was totally worth it.

I also saw some interesting ads in the paper like this

Couples dinner night at a strip club? How romantic!

Soon after I went home, caught up on tv and lounged around and again, was hungry. I remember a git card to Five Guys that I had so I went and picked up a burger and fries in hopes that it would cure the hangover

Yum yum yum! I love Five Guys so much plus the fact that they use fresh jalapenos if you want them on your burger and you can get cajun seasoning on your fries.

I found a nice surprise waiting for me as well courtesy of Kimberly from Sunny State of Mind. I recently won her giveaway for Raw Revolution bars and an Oikos greek yogurt coupon–I can’t wait to try out the bars!

Thanks Kimberly–so many bars to eat, so little time!!

And after that? You guessed it–more lounging and doing absolutely nothing. It felt great to relax but I still felt like hell.

By the time dinner rolled around, I was ready for something not so greasy so I made tofu tacos again and they turned out great. I swear the taco seasoning just makes it even better plus a little cheese and salsa never hurt anyone as well.

And now I sit watching Billy Madison

I love Adam Sandler movies but never been able to sit through this one because I think it’s just too stupid. I’m really just waiting for Happy Gilmore to begin which could possibly be even stupider than Billy Madison but I just like hearing “The price is wrong….bitch” I think Adam Sandler would be a really good and loyal friend though, look at how he always puts his friends in movies. Even the friends who have nothing going on career wise-that’s a good friend indeed.

 What’s the worst hangover you’ve ever had?

Favorite shot?

Damn you potatoes

30 Mar

Hello all-Happy Tuesday! Another gorgeous spring day in Charlotte, if it could only stay this way forever!

I started my day with an Iced Coffee Green Monster

I got to work and automatically went to the Bucks. I yet again, got a Venti Iced Coffee with soymilk and three splenda’s. I can clearly see this being an addiction. Dunkin Donuts has my favorite iced coffee —Coconut Iced Coffee but the two locations within walking distance of work are closed-boo!

Don’t mind my produce for the day in the shot, it gives it some color!

I had half a container of Chobani Strawberry Greek yogurt with sliced peaches and Fiber One Cereal .This stuff is so good and it has 14 gr of fiber per half cup and only 60 calories!

 

I don’t think I could eat it with milk alone but add some fruit and yogurt and I would be set!!

I had a Big Salad….it’s a salad only bigger.

With Baby spinach, black beans, tomato, cucumbers, shredded cheese and Chick Fil A Fat Free Honey Mustard

All of this for under 300 calories—yumm yummy yumm

I took a 25 minute walk so I could get outside and enjoy the sun

I came back and sipped on some hot chocolate since it was freezing at work

By 3P I needed my second lunch which was baked tofu and broccoli slaw marinated in soy. I wasn’t too keen on this the other night because it didn’t fill me up and I sprinkled a tad too much sriracha on it. Paired the salad a few hours before it held me over.

For dinner, I had a half a pork chop and roasted potatoes

Why such a small dinner you ask?

 Because of these—JAY’S POTATO CHIPS!!!!!

Jay’s takes me back to my childhood in Indiana. I didn’t even know they made them still but my sister sent me an Easter care package (even though I will be seeing her this wknd!) I made the mistake of opening the bag and then I couldn’t stop. Damn you Jay’s and damn you potatoes.

 Other goodies include:

Old Navy Tops

Tommy Hilger pajama pants

Gossip magazines

Mucho chocolate–including Fannie May Trinidad’s and Pixie’s 🙂 And Coconut M&M’s which I have heard about but never seen before!

*Note, I will NOT be giving this stuff away!

A Raw Indulgence Revolution Bar (again something I’ve never seen) anyone know anything about these??

Thanks sis!!

Does anyone want to see a Levi Johnston reality show? Yeah, me either. Dude, you seem like a tool. A hot tool but tool nonetheless

I cannot wait to get my Lost on tonight!! Am I a dork for wanting these figurines??

Actually, please don’t answer that!
