Game Night + Sundaes

Game night last night was a blast!

Girls + Games

A small group of us got together to play Scattergories at my friend Laurel’s apartment.

Her adorable (albeit slightly crazy) cat Natasha also joined in on the fun.


We were all laughing at the way Natasha sprawls out with her legs behind her. I’ve never seen a cat do that! So stinkin’ cute!

Laurel is such a wonderful hostess and had all the fixin’s for ice cream sundaes for us to enjoy.

In honor of Operation Healthy, Ryan and I decided to share a sundae.

Best Food in the World

Ryan made our sundae by topping a fresh-out-of-the-oven ooey gooey brownie with a couple of scoops of peanut butter cup ice cream, whipped cream, peanut butter sauce and hot fudge.

I think we polished off the entire bowl in 2.5 seconds.

Someone went back for more…

Round Two

You know I had several bites of his second sundae. What kind of a fiance would I be if I let him polish it all off by himself? ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is very hard for me to not overdo it when it comes to ice cream because I love it so, so much. I honestly think I could polish off a half-gallon without a problem.

Fortunately last night I enjoyed the ice cream without overdoing it and left Laurel’s feeling satisfied but not overly stuffed. Success!


This morning I woke up with a cramp in my calf!

I jumped around our bedroom breathing deeply and trying to stretch it out. Eek! No fun!

Waking up to a cramp in your calf really wakes you up, so I was quite the chipper little girl at the gym this morning.

Today’s workout included:

  • 10 min. stair master
  • 20 min. arc trainer
  • 20 min. elliptical

I did all of my workouts while browsing through my ginormous stack of bridal magazines.

I am on a mission to get through all of them within the week. I am tearing out any pages with ideas or inspiration for our big day and leaving the rest at the gym. My magazine stack is getting out of control (Yes, I blame you, Mama! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )!


Wanna know something kind of weird? I prefer my peanut butter and banana sandwiches made with slices of frozen bananas. I think they are more flavorful and hold up better in the sandwich for some reason.

Frozen Banana Slices + Nutmeg

I dusted today’s peanut butter and banana sandwich with nutmeg to make it all gourmet looking to impress you guys.

Did it work? ๐Ÿ˜‰

PB + Nutmeg

PB & B

I also enjoyed an Adora calcium disk because they taste like candy to help my bones stay strong.



Peanut butter, I love you.

Along with breakfast I also enjoyed a tumbler full of my gym’s free coffee.

Free Coffee Makes Me Smile

Oh! And before I forget… Sadie says “hi!”

"What Up, Yo!?"

Question of the Morning

  • Do you like to play board games?
  • What is your favorite game?

I love Taboo! ๐Ÿ˜€

Great Friends, Fun Games, Good Food

Last night’s game night was full of laughs and yummy eats.

I kept coming back for those delicious Rice Krispie treats. I love ’em!

CatchPhrase seemed to be the game of choice for the evening and the girls dominated… until the boys took over. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We also played charades and I picked some pretty difficult television shows and movies to act out. How on earth do you act out Fraggle Rock!?

The chill has officially hit Orlando! Woohoo!!!

When Ryan and I stepped outside to take Sadie on her morning walk, we immediately turned around to change into something warmer. What a great sign of real autumn weather.

We were in the mood for a warm and toasty breakfast and French toast seemed like the ideal morning meal.

I made the French toast using a whole wheat Arnold’s sandwich thin with egg whites, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice and almond extract.



Of course I topped my French toast with sticky syrup.

Saturday Mornin' Breakfast

I also enjoyed some cottage cheese and grapes to fill me up a bit more.

Now we’re digesting our breakfasts andย watching Remember the Titans before hittin’ the gym and running some errands.

We also bought a ton of food at the grocery store this morning and have all the fresh veggies and ingredients to make chicken soup later today. A perfect warm fall meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Saturday!
