It’s an exciting Thursday over here! First , after a flurry of text messages this morning between me and some of my girlfriends we decided “you only live once” and bought tickets to a sold out Mumford & Sons concert in two weeks!
The concert is on a week night, an hour and a half away and we way overpaid for the tickets but we decided the experience was worth it. I have been dying to see them for years and they’re one of the few of my most favorite bands that I haven’t seen live. I can’t wait. It’s going to be an awesome evening!
And second, my new handbag was waiting on my doorstep when I arrived home for lunch. I am not a big shopper and when I do shop it’s usually at Target or Nordstrom Rack but last Sunday I decided that I was finally going to buy myself a nice purse after wanting one for a really long time. I chose a neutral gray but a fun purple wallet. So happy with my selections!
Now the food.
I have been so good about making smoothies at work every morning instead of getting them out. I love this week’s combo…
1/2-3/4 of a banana
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk
5 frozen strawberries
Big handful of spinach
1-2 tablespoons almond butter
1/2 cup cubed ice
The Greek yogurt gives it a good tang, the banana balances it out with some sweetness, the dates give it sweetness and texture and the almond butter gives it staying power. Yum!
Lunch yesterday had a Thai spin on it. Red curry coconut chicken soup and vegetable spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce.
Lunch today was a little more basic. Open faced turkey sandwich with herb mayo, avocado, heirloom tomatoes and muenster (I had flashbacks to when I used to eat open faced sandwiches all the time) along with mango and these weird gluten free hummus chip things that aren’t really that great.
Dinner last night was my favorite salad combination as of late. Mixed greens with goat cheese, pecans, dried cranberries and avocado topped with broiled salmon heavily seasoned with salt and lemon pepper. The salmon was wild caught from Alaska and I got a great deal on it at Whole Foods.
Off to tackle my inbox and to do list. Both are frightening!
