Eggs, Toast and Waffles… Oh My!

Tonight’s dinner came together quickly when I realized I was craving only breakfast foods.

After taking Sadie on a walk, we settled down to a hot dinner of eggs, toast, Canadian bacon and waffles.

Dippy Eggs

My Plate

Why do I love breakfast for dinner so much?

Dessert was equally easy and full of chocolatey goodness.

Chocolate + Hazelnuts


Ryan enjoyed a big bowl of Oreo pudding. I had a bite or two… or ten.

Bikini Update

In case you were wondering, I ended up purchasing both bikinis… and I still have money left over on my gift card. Score!

Playlist Request

A couple of you requested that I post the playlist from my morning run… the one that had me lip syncing and enjoying a five mile run… Well, you ask and I deliver. All I ask is that you please don’t judge. My iPod music ranges from Jay-Z to Disney classics. 😀

Here ya go:

  • Laura Bell Bundy – Giddy On Up
  • Wicked Soundtrack – Popular
  • Wicked Soundtrack – Defying Gravity (<– This will seriously make you wanna sing!)
  • Barenaked Ladies – It’s All Been Done
  • Haddaway – What Is Love
  • Amber – This is Your Night
  • Ben Folds – Zac and Sara
  • Proclaimers – 500 Miles
  • Chicago Bulls Greatest Hits – B.U.L.L.S.
  • Collective Soul – December

Happy Weekend!!!

Day Date

I love a good date in the middle of the day!

Something as simple as meeting up with Ryan for a quick lunch at a nearby sub shop makes my day a little brighter. 😀

Ryan + Bootlegger Club Sandwich

(Doesn’t his new haircut look cute?)

Ready to Dig In!

Ryan met me on the first floor of my office building and we walked to Jimmy John’s, my favorite chain sandwich restaurant. When I moved away from Illinois, I thought I’d never see a Jimmy John’s again, so I was super excited when they started popping up in Central Florida.

I ordered a roast beef and provolone cheese unwich (aka a lettuce-wrap sandwich) with all the veggies (except peppers), while Ryan opted for the Bootlegger Club on 7-grain bread.

Both were delicious!

Cold Weather… What Cold Weather?

What’s a girl to do when the cold weather hits?

Daydream of hot summer days, of course!

Yes, it’s not even March. Yes, I’m wearing a sweater today. Yes, I check regularly to see when this cold will let up. Still, none of these factors deter me from perusing the Victoria’s Secret Web site for cute bikinis.

I still have money leftover on a gift card to this fantastic retailer from Christmas, so I decided to put some of the funds towards a new bathing suit and a pair of cropped yoga pants.

Which one do you like better?

Bathing Suit A:

Numero Uno

Bathing Suit B:

Numero Dos

I can’t decide! I’m not sure what my gift card balance is at the moment, so that might make the decision for me! 😀

Five Mile Friday

Since Ryan doesn’t have to work today and I decided to skip my usual 5:45 a.m. BodyPump class in favor of attending the ol’ Pump tomorrow morning, we slept in until just before 7 a.m.

It was gloooorious and I woke up with a little extra pep in my step as we walked to the gym.

We split up we we got there, and while Ryan went off to workout his shoulders, I hopped on the treadmill for a run. I think running when you’re “in the zone” is one of the best feelings. There’s nothing like feeling totally into your run, immersed in your music, while you’re breathing hard and sweatin’ like crazy.

I credit my great five mile run to a little extra sleep and a jammin’ new playlist on my iPod. Secret: I lip sync like crazy while I’m running. I look like a complete fool and love every minute of it.

What embarrassing things do you do at the gym?

After the gym, I came home and showered up while Ryan made a hot and yummy breakfast.

Chef Ryan

Chef Ryan cooked up two large omelets with lots of mozzarella cheese.

Eggy + Cheesy


I love that he has every other Friday off work… but I think Sadie loves it even more. She gets a buddy to play with allllll day.

Lunch Plans

Since Ryan has the day off, we have a lunch date planned. We’re meeting up at Jimmy John’s (I’m seriously obsessed with this place!) and I see roast beef and provolone cheese in my future… Yum!
