Weekend Love


Mine has been fabulous so farΒ  – pedicure, dinner with friends, over two glorious hours of hot yoga and getting my life organized.

Last night we met our friends Lelia and Matt for dinner at Sir Edmond Halley’s. Sir Ed’s is a and old Charlotte establishment that is tucked away behind a shopping center. They have a great patio and upscale bar food.

We started with hummus for the table.

It was such a nice evening to sit outside. I am a huge fan of outdoor dining and looking forward to cooler evenings in the coming months!

It was dark by the time my food came so excuse the less than stellar photo but I had the spicy portobello and asparagus grilled cheese with a side salad.

And then I’m not sure what happened but the car magically led me here on the drive home…


I have a new favorite ice cream flavor. Seriously, this may become a problem. It was soooo insanely delicious. I ordered half peanut butter and half coconut cookie bar. The coconut was good but next time I’ll go with 100% peanut butter!

What is your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor?

After having to teach all weekend last weekend and not getting to practice I was super excited about yoga this morning. I attended the 7:30 super flow and then stayed for half of the 9:15 hot vinyasa because I just couldn’t get enough. They were awesome classes and I left feeling so much better and completely dripping in sweat. I love my yoga studio!

One of the reasons I didn’t stay for all of the 9:15 was because my stomach was talking to me. I was starving! I made a greek yogurt and granola bowl when I got home.

Brandon and I made a quick trip to the farmers market and Home Depot and then I made a big salad for lunch. Spinach, tofu, almonds, dried cranberries, white beans, tomatoes, carrots, baby portobello mushrooms, feta and apples with a lemon dijon honey vinaigrette.

It’s been a cleaning + organizing afternoon around here and I LOVE IT.

Brandon has been hanging new wood blinds in our living room while I’ve been cleaning away. I can’t even explain to you how much better I feel having my life back in order.

Off to figure out dinner! We’re cooking at home!

    I just had that peanut butter cluster B&J’s ice cream last night for the first time as well…AMAZING!! Good thing there were 4 of us to share a pint because otherwise I might have eaten the entire thing in one sitting…gulp!

    My fave has always been B&J’s chocolate chip cookie dough. However after reading your blog my wonderful hubby is headed out on a hunt for pb clusters!! I may soon have a new gave because that sounds like perfection!!!

  • Alaina August 27, 2011, 7:52 pm

    I love Bonnaroo Buzz and Clusterfluff from Ben & Jerry’s. For a simple flavor, mint chocolate chip. πŸ™‚

  • Mary-Heather August 27, 2011, 8:53 pm

    My favorite B&J’s flavor is Strawberry Cheesecake! I actually just picked up a pint at the store earlier today because it’s so hot here in New Mexico and I was really craving it. Gonna be a treat later! πŸ™‚

    My favorite ice cream ever, though, is Jeni’s ice cream – her flavors are just insanely good and so unique. If you have a store near you that carries it, try them out! http://www.jenisicecreams.com/pages/Retail-Partners.html

    • Jen August 29, 2011, 11:31 am

      oh i love anything cheesecake flavored too!

      i’ve never tried jeni’s ice cream but it looks like there is a retailer here that carries it so i will check it out. ice cream is pretty much one of my favorite foods ever! πŸ˜‰

    Ben and Jerry’s Phish food — hands down the most awesome ice cream in the universe.

  • Whitney August 27, 2011, 11:10 pm

    I’m surprised you didn’t do the Warrior Dash today… sounds like something that would be right up your alley. It was awesome…and difficult πŸ™‚

  • Anne August 27, 2011, 11:12 pm

    I definitely have to go with Vanilla for my favorite flavor, but Cookies ‘N Cream is a close second!

  • Emily@RunningPerspective August 27, 2011, 11:15 pm

    i love your dress!!!!!

    • Jen August 29, 2011, 11:32 am

      thank you, thank you!

  • Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) August 27, 2011, 11:24 pm

    My favorite Ben & Jerry’s favors are Half Baked and Chocolate Fudge Brownie. πŸ™‚ The mix ins are the best part! Glad you were able to relax and rejuvenate. Love those types of weekends!

  • Joanna Stebing August 28, 2011, 12:06 am

    Pumpkin Cheesecake. Only on shelves for maybe 4 weeks a year, and SO WORTH IT. πŸ™‚

    • Jen August 29, 2011, 11:29 am

      yuuummm! i’ve never tried that one but i’ll be on the lookout this year, for sure!

  • Bethany August 28, 2011, 2:08 am

    B & J’s double chocolate fudge brownie, for SURE πŸ™‚

    That salad looks delicious! I love it when a salad is pretty and colorful!

    • Jen August 29, 2011, 11:32 am

      me too! i think it makes it more fun to eat.

  • Clara August 28, 2011, 9:18 am

    Oh I love that feeling of finally being able to spend time at home and just get your whole life organized after being so busy. You certainly deserve it! Also I need to get some of that new B&J flavor, sounds irressitable.

  • Carly August 28, 2011, 2:32 pm

    Your dinner looked delicious and so did your ice cream..yum!

  • Cameron August 28, 2011, 3:48 pm

    OMG, I just posted a story about the Clusterfluff this week. We didn’t have the same experience though! I guess that’s what happens when the men turn it into an ice cream eating contest!!


  • Anastasia August 28, 2011, 9:39 pm

    That hummus and your sandwich looks really good! Eating outside is the best.

    Oh man, the ice cream sounds incredible and I can understand why it might become a problem! :] I don’t normally eat Ben & Jerry’s, but I’ve had Karamel Sutra before and it was pretty delicious.
