Not Jimmy John’s!?!?

Whenever Ryan meets me downtown for lunch we go to Jimmy John’s.

I love it. Ryan loves it. It works.

Today, however, I just wasn’t feeling The John’s.

I met Ryan in the lobby of my office building and informed him of my odd change in cravings.

Shock set in.

Then Ryan said he was also craving something other than a Jimmy John’s sub, and randomly brought a gift card for a sushi restaurant with him.

Anytime someone suggests sushi, I’m game!

We headed to Bento, a quick, casual Asian and sushi restaurant, to grab some tasty rolls.

We ended up ordering two sushi rolls and a teriyaki chicken bowl that came with chicken, egg noodles, green beans and asparagus, and split everything between us.

Chicken + Noodles + Veggies


All of our food was fresh and flavorful.

I really like how Bento offers a handful of sushi rolls without rice.

I was a little skeptical about the riceless rolls until I tried a piece that one of my coworkers ordered. I was amazed at how I didn’t even miss the rice! I’ve asked about riceless sushi rolls at other restaurants before and chefs will often try to accommodate my requests, which is great.

Of course I still like rice in my rolls, but ordering a roll sans rice is a great option for me when I’m ordering other things and want to enjoy a lighter sushi roll as well.


Once we were finished eating, we headed next door to Mochi for frozen yogurt.

We enjoyed the combination we created the last time we visited Mochi so much that we decided to replicate it this afternoon.

Fro Yo Melts My Heart

Peanut butter frozen yogurt + Butterfinger pieces… and we added some chocolate-covered toffee pieced and cheesecake bits for good measure.

I loved having a little lunch date to break up the monotony of the work day. What a nice lil’ treat!

I am actually feeling quite sleepy (food coma, maybe?), and am looking forward to curling up on the couch and watching a movie when I get off work today.

Later tonight I have plans to meet up with some bloggers you may recognize (Woo!) and I can’t wait!

See ya later, alligators.

On the Right Foot

Friday started off on the right foot!

Walk, Walk, Walk

Today is one of the every other Fridays that Ryan has off of work, so he joined me and Sadie on our morning walk!

She's Just a Love Machine

Yup, She's a Daddy's Girl

Tour de Orlando

"Let Gooo! That Squirrel is Getting Away!"

We walked for about 40 minutes and enjoyed watching Sadie terrorize play with the birds around the lake.

Heeeere Swany, Swany!

It was nice to enjoy a moment of calm before the kickoff of the work day!


Pre-walk Ryan and I headed to the gym for a good workout.

While he hit the weight room, I took a BodyPump class followed by 15 minutes on the elliptical.


After arriving home from our walk with Sadie, I immediately enjoyed a peanut butter finger while preparing a random assortment of goodies for breakfast.

Friday Breakfast

On today’s menu was a cheese roll up along with a chopped fruit salad comprised of a sliced apple and peach and a small bowl of Gerber Graduates Apple Cinnamon Puffs.

Baby Food for Big Girls

Quite the hodge podge, but it was delicious!

Now it’s time to w-o-r-k.

Happy Friday, friends!
