Fly By


Eesh, it seems like these past few days have been nothing but

Wake Up, Shower, Oats, Starbucks, Work-Work-Work, Commute Home, Supper, Bed

While work has been awesome lately and really exciting, my eating life has been pretty…boring. I’ve been revisiting past recipes like the Grown Up Macaroni and Cheese, but I’m excited to branch out more this week. I have the latest edition of Cooking Light (it called to me from the check out line) and there are a few recipes that I hope to make this week.

I did make two exciting discoveries at Trader Joes:

Don’t misunderstand, I am a LARA Bar girl for life, but I’m always up for trying new things. And as I wrote last week, my work life is only going to get crazier between now and January, so I have to get a little creative when it comes to eating on the run.

So far I’ve only tried the thinkThin White Chocolate Chip

It was SUUUUUPER sweet. Which actually worked out because I was craving a chocolate bar, but I was only able to eat half. Plus it was 215 calories, and I really only needed a 100 calorie snack.

In unrelated to food news, I’m SO excited because tonight we are celebrating my sister-in-laws Katie’s  birthday!! :) I had hoped to celebrate with her on her actual birthday, but she was under the weather. Tonight is bound to be a great time because her husband is an AHH-mazing cook (think Top Chef) and they’re both incredibly warm and funny folks. Expect a FULL recap tonight!

Ahh, I almost forgot to mention:

Parrish and I did get Blackberry Storms last night!! Looooong story that I won’t bore you with, but getting these phones has been a month long process, but last night at our local Verizon store I had the BEST customer service of my life! $400 later, we walked in with two used Storms and left with two new Storms, but it was no biggie. Parrish and I are happy and we’ve both been a little geeked out playing with our new phones!

The Pure Bars are bangin'. Espesh the brownie one. It comes very close to a real brownie.

oohhh! I've heard of Pure bars and really need to try them!

I agree on the think thins. I've tried a few varieties, but I'm not the biggest fan. Very sweet indeed and a little on the artificial side, but good in a pinch!

I like to take the Think Thin bars with me to weddings and eat when everyone else is having cake. :)
