Happy Sunday! I hope the weekend has been great for you. I think the theme of my weekend is taking pictures in front of Christmas trees. Such a festive time of year. 😛
I’ll divide this post into “what I did” and “what I ate.”
Weekend Activities (a.k.a. how many pictures can i take in front of a christmas tree!)
Friday night I got decked out in cocktail attire for my brother in law’s 40th birthday party. I posed for a picture with sweet Sullie in front of the tree before leaving.
Although it was a birthday party, we had a special visit from Santa. He was pretty legit, huh?
I slept in and skipped yoga on Saturday morning in favor of a later class. I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning before getting ready to meet some friends at Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for the Christmas Market.
I had so much fun hanging out with Debbie and Mary Dare (and sampling Olde Meck’s Yule Bock…yummmm). I know Debbie from yoga and met her friend Mary Dare last night. She’s also a group ex instructor and personal trainer so we had tons to talk about.
This is just a random sampling of some of the things I’ve eaten this weekend. Unpictured…multiple cupcakes leftover from the birthday party. 😉
Saturday morning breakfast was plain Greek yogurt topped with pumpkin butter, apples, bananas, cinnamon, granola and sunflower butter. I made bacon and eggs for Brandon.
Saturday post-yoga lunch was a slice of Great Harvest Dakota toasted with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Carrots, apples and pretzels on the side.
I picked up two boxes of Trader Joe’s Vanilla and Cinnamon Black Tea this week. I love this tea and it’s only available during the holidays. I’ve been drinking so much coffee and hot tea lately to warm up.
This is a terrible iPhone photo but I had to share my Saturday night dinner (post happy hour and Olde Meck). Brandon and I went to Pacos Tacos for the first time and it was delicious! I had a great internal debate…order the fajita salad with veggies and shrimp and leave feeling good or order tacos, rice and beans and leave feeling gross. Brandon told me to go big or go home so I did. I went with the tacos and cleaned the plate. Seriously. I have a love/hate relationship with Mexican food. It’s so delicious but I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and was up for an hour laying in bed with my food baby.
I had a protein-packed brunch after teaching yoga this morning. Two eggs with a crumbled soy sausage, spinach and mozzarella cheese. Grapefruit on the side.
And now I am off to enjoy my Sunday afternoon. Yoga + cooking a big batch of chili and beer bread.
Mexican food: love it, hate it or love/hate it?
