Whirlwind of a(n Almost Spring) Weekend

Instead of another macrobiotics post, I thought I might share what I was up to this weekend. I am so glad springtime is finally around the corner.

Friday night I was able to leave work by 6pm. I meandered home and cooked up some sweet potato gnocchi (Trader Joe’s) for myself. Bobby ended up having to work late so I was on my own. I just played around with a couple of website ideas I’ve been thinking of… overall a relaxing evening. I also read The Help (my current book). It’s really great; I definitely recommend it. I have not seen the movie yet but I will when I finish the novel.

Walking the Happy Walk & the Aisle

I have had a really amazing 6 day streak of happiness. Ever since Wednesday night I’ve been over the moon. Since I’m in such a good mood I wanted to give an update about the thing that makes me the happiest girl in the world: getting married to Bobby, the most amazing man I have ever met! (The engagement post is here.) I am also excited about a product review that I’m going to do for a company that sells bar stools – stay tuned icon smile Walking the Happy Walk & the Aisle Maybe I will get some bar stools for my wedding, hehe.

We have picked a place for the ceremony – the meetinghouse I grew up going to in Yardley, PA. Here is a nice picture (this is in the winter):

They are so sweet – when my dad told them I was getting married they blocked off every weekend in July for us (we still haven’t picked the exact date).

I Love Chipotle Burritos & Grits. And Wedding Planning.

Today I got Chipotle for lunch. My fajita burrito had…

 I Love Chipotle Burritos & Grits. And Wedding Planning.

  • Wrap (why don’t they have whole wheat yet?)
  • Rice (yum! I love the way they season and butter this)
  • Carnitas (shredded pork)
  • Extra fajita veggies
  • Tomato and corn salsas
  • Lettuce

I ate a little more than half and put it away (I was at lunch with Bobby). Five minutes later I was still ravenous (Bobby was just finishing up his burrito – exactly the same as mine but with beans instead of fajita veggies) so I finished it off. Yum.

Ah, here was my breakfast today – grits with coconut oil and maple syrup. My dad used to make grits all the time when I was growing up. Actually – he still does. Every time Bobby and I go to New Jersey he makes us fried grits and they are amazing.
