Happy Friday Eve Ya’ll!!! I seriously cannot believe just how busy this week has been! Thursday means letting my crock pot do most of the “heavy lifting” in the dinner department (honey garlic meatballs and vegetable risotto on deck) which frees me up for a little blog writing. I just finished up three miles with a pal and now I happily have my feet up while I wait on some good Thursday television to start. #NotAshamed. Carrie is staying close by keeping an eye on things too.
I have a pretty low key weekend planned but last weekend Kristen and I were on the road to NC.
If you’ve been around the blog for a little while you might know that one of our many random traditions is seeing the musical Wicked each year. This year January was the the only month it would be coming close enough for us to attend so we packed up and headed to Raleigh for a day or sushi, shopping, and (of course) Wicked!
I also have to take a minute and talk about the beautiful and amazing Birthday gift Kristen brought along for me- a gold cuff from All The Wire with the coordinates for my late grandparents house. I will always be able to carry home with me. Annnnnd cue the tears. There is nothing that touches my heart more than a meaningful reminder of home.
Since I am making a genuine effort to stay on plan I wanted to note that our brunch stop on Sunday was all business. I got a healthy and delicious yogurt/fruit/granola combo with just a drizzle of honey. Road trips are tricky on a diet but it can be done- trust me. And no, I didn’t eat that delicious sweet bowl the yogurt came in even though it smelled like heaven on a plate. Just saying.
Like I said, this week has been extra busy. I have been running from meeting to meeting which makes it all too tempting to grab lunch on the road. I was determined not to let a crazy week throw me off track. Luckily, the awesome folks at Rove sent me some extremely useful reusable products for food and beverages on the go!
Rove products are BPA free and make it just a little easier to keep things healthy on the go.I used both the 14 ounce double wall hot & cold hydration mug (helloooooo inexpensive and delicious coffee in the car) and the 20 Ounce Double Wall Flavor Infuser Tumbler (lemon water I’m looking at you) BUT by far my favorite product of the bunch was the 7 piece laptop iced Bento Lunch Box.
This box is PERFECT for portion controlled lunches. I loved the ice pack option, attachable spoon/fork, and the fact that applesauce and other “wet” foods stay put with the lid. I was so excited to pack this full of goodies for a long day at the office this week.
Connect with ROVE on Facebook to stay on top of their great deals. These items are offered in a variety or colors. I am genuinely a fan!!
Not to be completely random but I have been on a bit of a drink ware binge lately. Check out these gems….
And that’s all Ive got! Catch you all this weekend! xoxo
