 Yogurt Mess with a Vita-top mixed in

 Friday Recap: Friday night Karstee, Court, and I all went to Which Wich for dinner for the first time, and it was AMAZING! You walk in, grab your a sandwich bag, and mark what kind of sandwich you want, and everything you want on it. Then, you give it to the cashier, pay, and sit down till they call your name. I got the Caprese Sandwich which had Pesto, Tomato, mozzerella on it, then I requested some Carmalized onions added in. Court’s Sammie was the Buffalo Chicken one. They both looked absolutely delish, so we split them both with eachother. You know you are close with someone, when you don’t even have to say “Hey give me your other half.” All you do is cut it in half in swap. lol After our dinner, we headed over to Washington Park and walked 3 miles, this time we walked the outer loop, and went farther than just around the lake. The weather was gorgeous, and everyone was out doing their thang. When we finished our walk, Stella’s Coffee was calling our name, and they we’re having FREE musical performances since it was Friday night. When we got there, everything seemed a little fishy. There were ambulance Vehicles on every corner, and Police officers walking everywhere. We did not know what was going on, but then still went in to get some Coffee and a treat. I decided to go save us three a table, while they got our drinks. While I was sitting there waiting, this gothic gang walked by the window, then came insided and started a mega fight with this older guy and his daughter who were at the table across from me. They were saying “Hey wtf is your problem man?” Apparently when the old man looked out the window as they walked by he said something bad about them, eventhough he was just talking to his daughter. WOW! So they were in a mega yelling match, and I’m not gonna lie, I was kinda scared. The whole this was a little weird, and his daughter kept being like “Leave us alone, we did not do anything.” After that whole Shenanigans went down, they told us the musician was running late, so there would be no music for another hour. Well as soon as I heard that, I rushed back to where Courtney and Karstee were, and we decided there were a lot of weirdos out tonight. Then, we left and went home.

Saturday Recap:  We had work from 8-4:30 today, and a long saturday it was. All day I worked Drive-thru with this girl Jessica, while Court was Cashier for the inside people. It was a crazy busy day, and our boss said that we made way more money than usual for a typical day. After work, Starby’s was across the street, so Court and I went to Frappaccino Happy Hour. We both got Toffee nut Frapps. Usually this is our favorite Latte Flavor, so today we decided to try it out as a Frapp. And WOW was it good! 🙂 And, the price of each Frapp was under $2. What a DEAL! Since we are reading The Kite Runner for School now, Satuday night we all watch the movie. It was such a good movie, and really made me excited to finish reading the book.

Sunday Recap: We were running late this morning, and had to Haul A** to work. Work was originally from 8-2:30 today, but we got to leave at 1. When we got home, some homework was completed, a nap taken, and then we made dinner. Dinner was a breakfast burrito, with Pears and PB. Since it was mother’s day, all the family was together, and we all had some Chocolate cake for dessert.

Today we woke up to Apple Cinnamon Baked oats, and Vermont Maple flavored Coffee.

 And on top is a special Maple Yogurt glazed icing. It was a very flavorful baked oatmeal, that we will for sure be making again. And look at the size on the plate, it is really only a 1/2 cup oats pictured there. lol no lie!

 Since today was an “A” day, we had Gym plans for after second period, so we split our las KIND bar out of the Bar Stash. So far this one takes the cake. Maybe because it is covered in yogurt??? IDK

 At the gym, we completed 25 min of elipical, 5 min of the stationary bike, and floorwork.

When we got home, some Panini’s and soup sounded good for lunch, so we pulled out our Bolani Cilantro Pesto spread.

 

 Verdict: We love love loved this on a crispy panini bread. Yum, and it paired perfect with spinach, tomato, swiss, and turkey.

 And the soup chosen was Progresso Lentil Soup. Take a bite into that puppy

Wowy, here is a QOD for ya: Do you workout everyday, or just a few time a week? What does your typical workout schedule look like?

Fabulous end to a fabulous day!

16 Apr

So pretty much after lunch today, Court and I came home and passed out for about 3 hours. LOL, I love♥  a good nap that can just knock you out like that! That is when you know your body needed it. And it’s Friday, we’re gonna be working all weekend, you know take advantage of that spare time. After making a Tuna melt yesterday for dinner, I thought of another great meal. Tonight we made a healthier version of a Tuna Casserole, with all the ingredients pictured below.

 After mixing all ingredients, it was put in the oven at 375 for about 15 min.

Viola! It turned out great, and randomly paired was a piece of smart balance buttered toast and Grapes 🙂

 

 Simple. Easy. Delicious. Friday.

 

 After dinner, our mom gotta kind of mad at us for not doing the yard work she asked us to do earlier which was to pick up all the leaves under the tramp and along the fence whoops! lol So after the lecture we headed out to the backyard with a trash bag and tried to pick up all of those leaves ASAP, I mean we did have some plans, and it is Friday night, I mean Come on Mom? Really?

When the yard was all leave-free, we got the okay, then headed to Stella’s Coffee House for a fun night with the older sister. This evening’s flavor was a Non-fat White Chocolate Mocha. And look, they even have Heart Thrive’s there. So Court and I split the Apple pack. This was our first time trying these, and they are yum yum for the tum tum.

 

 As soon as we picked up our warm drink, we wanted to go around the corner to Washington Park. We took about an hour walk all through the park and around Smith Lake.

 

 It was beautiful, so many people we’re out bike riding, and the weather felt perfect.

 

 Here we are on the dock. I am on the left, and Court is on the right.

 

 These houses are really classic old, and so awesome! Our older sister Karstee wants to move over here, and I think one day I would too. This area is right by DU and the Cherry Creek area.

 

 

 

 There were Geese everywhere, and we were all a little afraid that they might attack us. Lol, nope. Glad to report they did not.

 And would you look at the root of that TREE! okay, random but Karstee told me to take a picture so I did.

 

 In the mail today, we tore open Goji cookie HEAVEN 🙂 There was this fabulous package from Gourmet Goji!
