I thought I'd check in with what's been going on in my life lately. 

Last Friday, Craig and I headed to Bosch Tavern in Hales Corners so he could get a fish fry and I could attempt to find something to eat on their meat heavy menu. 

While we waited for a table, I admired the gorgeous ceiling. 

There literally was nothing but fried appetizers on the menu for me to order. Luckily, we had the sweetest waitress who offered to ask for a veggie wrap and proceeded to tell me all of the vegetables I could have in it. I had that with a side of cottage cheese and a Strongbow hard cider. 

I've been attempting to curl my hair with my flat iron lately. I have watched three or four tutorials on youtube now and I think I am starting to get the hang of it. It just takes practice since I am not good at that sort of thing naturally!

I finished Yes Please by Amy Poehler this week. I rated it three stars on Goodreads, mostly because I got to a point in the book where I didn't feel like reading anymore and there were certain parts that just didn't appeal to me.

I found protein packed Kodiak cakes at Target and made them last weekend. They kept me full all morning!

I am still getting used to being without a gym membership, so I decided to sign up for Happy Herbivore's 100K steps challenge in March! I'm using a pedometer to log my steps and just entering them into the Apple Health app to see my totals.

I saw the big white/gold, blue/black dress debate on social media before bed last night and I was in the white & gold camp, like my pal grumpy cat.

Craig saw blue & black. I can't believe that blew up online the way it did. What colors did you see?

I had today off of work and ran a bunch of errands. Since I've lost 13 lbs. in the last few months, I have had to purchase some new items in smaller sizes. I also got my wedding rings inspected and cleaned. Unfortunately, there were two diamonds loose, so I'll go without my rings for the next two weeks. I feel so naked without them.

My final errand was to Trader Joe's. I only wanted to pick up two or three items and I left with over $50 worth of groceries. TJ's is becoming the new Target. I can't leave without spending close to $50! I was so happy to see that they now sell shelf stable almond milk without carrageenan in it! I usually buy their refrigerated almond milk, but I like to keep a shelf stable one in our pantry as a backup. 

We don't have any formal plans for the weekend and I am thankful to have two more whole days off! I need to get started on reading my nutrition CEU material and I plan to watch Ida, which won best Foreign Film (my favorite category) at the Oscars. I think this will be my first time seeing a Polish movie. Too bad Craig isn't really interested in watching it and he's the one with the Polish blood, while I have none. 

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I can so relate to not being able to find anything on a menu. While fried appetizers are delicious, that's a sure fire way to leave with a gut ache.

    Chris and I were watching the local news in the OB waiting room this morning and both saw blue/black.

  2. Lisa,
    I saw white & gold too! My husband saw blue and black & looked at me like I was crazy lol Congrats on your weight loss! I haven't had any luck on my weight loss so far- what type of eating plan are you doing? I am thinking of switching back to paleo.

    And I love Trader Joes! I can't go in there without buying almost a cart-full of groceries- my new favorite store- I was so happy to finally get one about 1.5 years ago :-)

  3. I totally saw white and gold, no questions asked lol. Love your hair with the curls with the flat iron, I'd say you have it down :) Also I love ceilings and fixtures in restaurants, I'm always looking up lol. Have a great week,
