Puppy Chow Ruins Appetites

I wasn’t actually hungry around lunchtime due to the Foodie Friday goodie that one of my coworkers brought into the office today…

Puppy chow!!!

Puppy Chow

This stuff is unbelievably addicting. I probably ate a whole solo cup (aka the token beer cups from college) full of it throughout the morning.

Even though my tummy wasn’t grumbling for lunch, I still ate what I packed because I figured my body needed some nutrients after ingesting all the sugar, chocolate and peanut butter from the puppy chow.

I made myself a salad topped with homemade tuna salad that contained tuna, light Miracle whip, mustard, celery and sweet relish.

Deconstructed Tuna Salad

The tuna salad topped a bed of baby greens, served with red pepper slices.

A lil’ more nutritious than puppy chow, no? πŸ˜‰

Bachelorette Party Round Two!

Some of you may remember a while back I mentioned that I was going to have a two-part bachelorette party.

My first bachelorette party weekend occurred at the beginning of the month.

I had a great time with my friends from college in Chicago singing and dancing at a dueling piano bar, attending a drag show and running a half marathon in matching pink tank tops. It was a crazy and super-fun time!

Bachelorette Party: Take One!

Tonight I’m heading back to Chicago for Round Two of bachelorette fun… This time with my high school gang and my sister!

Once again, I am completely in the dark with what the weekend will entail, but I know that as long as I’m with my best friends and sister it’ll be a blast!

See ya from the Windy City!
