Weekend Recap: Chocolate Wine and Cake Ballz

Once again, better late than never.  🙂  I seem to have a hard time getting a blog out on a Sunday or a Monday.  Not sure exactly why that is all about, but I’m not going to let it stop me from posting a weekend recap.

First of all, do you remember me telling you about this chocolate wine I found for Valentines Day??  I never imagined I would see it again until next February.  Well, imagine my shock and surprise when I found it at a local liquor store on Friday… AND there was a $10 mail in rebate if you bought 3 bottles.  Duh.  Guess how many I bought???  lol

chocolate rouge

That was my idea of a fun Friday night!!  🙂   And this was the kids’ idea ….  naked and playing video games.  They are so funny.  Of course, she is not actually playing that Nintendo DS, she is just pushing buttons.

Saturday was a beautiful day!  So I had to take my daughter out for a walk in the neighborhood.  I actually started out on the treadmill with an episode of Biggest Loser, but then realized that I would be much better served to take it outside.  Our neighborhood is really hilly, so it’s a great workout pushing a stroller up all the hills.

You do realize that you can’t take a walk without Mickey, Minnie AND George, right??

walking the neighborhood

After the walk and the shower, we were headed down to my in-laws house for an afternoon gathering.  It’s an hour-long drive in the car.  The little one wouldn’t nap.  So that made for a really evening… and night.  Why is it that if they don’t get their nap in, they then don’t sleep well at night.  You would think they’d be so tired that they’d sleep great!  Not with this one.

Dinner was Taco Soup with a variety of toppings.  It was fun watching how everyone made their soup.  Some put chips on the bottom, some on the top, and of course, mine are on the side.  Everyone’s was different.

You know me ….  I have to take a pic of the beautiful sunset ….

If it’s a birthday in hubby’s family, then carrot cake is standard issue.  It was delicious!!

happy birthday

And finally, no birthday is complete without cake balls!!  Red Velvet Cake Ballz.  (My specialty)  And a favorite with the fam.

Most of Sunday was spent doing homework.  I still had a massive chapter on muscles to finish reading, homework to do, discussion questions to answer, and a test to take!  But I am happy to report I got a 93 on my test!  Yipee.

It was another beautiful day so I made sure I took the time to get outside for another walk with the babe in the stroller.  My workout actually started on the treadmill with an episode of ‘The Biggest Loser’ but then decided I would be better served to take my workout outside.

Question of the Day:  Have you ever made cake balls before?  And what is your favorite treat on your special day??

Last Things Thursday: 2/21/13

This is going to be a fun one.  Thursday was a super crazy day!

1. Last Food You Ate:

A protein bar and a coffee.  Yes, that was my dinner.  Let me explain.  I had only a limited amount of time from when I left work to when I had to meet Mom in Maryville to see my cousin in a play.  But tonight was my night to run, and I really needed to get my workout in.  So I changed quickly, went running, got a coffee afterwards (because I was cold), drove 30 minutes to Maryville, changed back into my dress and boots in the car, and made it to the lobby by 6:45.  No time for dinner.  But luckily, I had a protein bar in my purse!!

protein bar and coffee

2. Last Beverage You Drank:

See previous question.  It was coffee.  And I’m thinking that drinking that much caffeine at 6:30pm was probably not the greatest idea I’ve ever had!!

3. Last workout:

4.2 miles at Lakeshore.  It wasn’t the fastest I’ve ever run.  I walked some too.  But I didn’t want to get too sweaty before the play.

lakeshore run

4. Last thing You Pinned:

Oh goodness – I haven’t been on Pinterest in days.  Too busy  😦

5. Last text message you sent:

To hubby, of course.  I let him know when the play was over.  And that it was POURING and I had parked like a football field or two away from the building.  So I looked like a drowned rat when I got home!!

6. Last blog you visited:

Katie Moves.  I especially enjoyed reading her engagement story earlier in the week. Congratulations, Katie!!

7. Last place you visited:

The Clayton Center for the Arts at Maryville College (that’s where the play was).

8. Last show you watched:

Does the play count??  It was called ‘Hay Fever’ by Noel Coward.  It was set in England in the 1920’s.  The playwright himself described Hay Fever as “one of the most difficult plays to perform that I have encountered … it has no plot at all, and remarkably little action.”  So he even admitted there was no plot.  It was cute at times.  A little slow.  The actors were great.  Though, I think I missed some dialog based on the fact I couldn’t understand what they were saying in their fake British accents.

playbook

That’s my cousin, Gregg, sitting there at the table.

hay fever play

And us afterwards….

me and my cousin

9. Last thing you baked:

Ack.  I just realized I haven’t baked anything since I did this survey last week.  Though, it’s just as well.  It took us days to finally finish that strawberry cake.  And I’d rather not have all that temptation sugar just sitting around the house.

10. Last photo you instagrammed:

Technically, the last photo I instagrammed was of my salad last night.  But since I shared that in yesterday’s WIAW post, I went a little further back to get my daughter dancing on the table:

tada

Whew!  That was quite a day.  I left the house at 7:45am and arrived back home, exhausted, at 10:30pm.  Thankgoodness tomorrow is Friday!!!

PS – any other WordPress users out there??  Do you find that after you hit ‘Post’ that sometimes pictures or words just disappear???  It seems to happen almost every other time.  I have to remember to go back and reread my post after I publish, because more often that not, I have to hit ‘Edit’.  A little frustrating.

What I Ate Wednesday: 2/20/13

Happy Hump Day everyone!!  Who is ready for a little sunshine and warm weather??  I know I am!!  It was just a ‘blah’ day outside today.  And it was much colder than expected.

This morning, we were in a bit of a hurry to get out the door.  So that meant we didn’t have time for our usual kale shakes.  😦

Instead, there was leftover scrambled eggs with spinach in the fridge.  So I heated it up, placed it atop some fresh spinach; dabbed some red pepper jelly on a Trader Joe’s British muffin, and called it breakfast.  Not too bad.

egg sandwich

Lunch was at my desk:  almonds, yogurt and a hard-boiled egg.

lunch collage

Yes, you read that correctly ….  coffee flavored almonds  !!!!  But wait.

I really had high hopes for them.  I mean, I love coffee. And I love almonds.  I especially love Blue Diamond!  So how could you go wrong?!?  But sadly, I was disappointed.

Read it again.  It’s roasted coffee.  Maybe that was the problem.  I’m not sure.  I think I’ll stick with the other Blue Diamond flavors I love so much (like wasabi, habanero BBQ, honey dijon, lime & chili, etc etc)

By the time I got home, I was exhausted.  Could not stop yawning.

I declared a no-cook night.  Thankfully there was a Newman’s Own pizza in the freezer for the kids.  (I tried a bite of Luke’s and it was pretty good)!

frozen pizza

And I made myself a big salad.  With sriracha, of course!!  No dinner is complete without sriracha!  🙂

big salad

I have to include a photo of the sunset.  You know I’m obsessed with sunsets.

sunset tonight

And finally, I will leave you with a funny story ……

I will occasionally leave notes in my son’s lunchbox or hubby’s lunch bag.  I just like the surprise of finding a little love note later.  So yesterday morning, I was sitting at my desk and I needed something from my purse.  I reached in, only to discover that Luke had left me a love note!!

How sweet, I thought.  Then I read the note …..  I couldn’t stop laughing all day …….

love note

“I hope you get the orange off” ….  he’s referring to the fact that my hands are a little orange after my spray tan.  I had gone after the kids were in bed.  So he didn’t even know I had gotten a spray tan.  The next morning I was fixing his breakfast when he noticed my hands.  Honestly, they aren’t THAT bad.  But I will say – it was my first ever spray tan.  Now I know to put a little more of the barrier cream on the hands and feet next time.  That is, if I go again.  I mean,  I like the look of the tan, but I did not like the experience.  The claustrophobic little capsule and the spraying in the face – it’s enough to traumatize a person.  Ok, maybe I’m being a little dramatic.  All I could think about before walking in was that episode of ‘Friends’ where Ross forgets to turn.  Thankfully, I turned.  🙂

Question of the Day:  Have you done a spray tan before?   And what is your favorite flavor of almonds??

Weekend Recap: Snow and Putt-Putt

As I told you on Friday, I was planning for a fabulous, productive 4-day weekend.  My To Do List included lots of housework, studying, running and playing with the kids.

looking out the window

On Saturday, they were calling for snow flurries. I was surprised when it really started coming down!! The kids were thrilled!!

let it snow

It wasn’t enough for snowballs or snowmen.  But they were some big fat flakes!!  And just as quickly as it started, it was gone.

sky

On Sunday, hubby woke up with a stomach bug.  ;(

So he spent much of the day laying around, while I spent the day doing homework and studying.

It was still so cold outside.

Therefore, I kept the workout inside on both Saturday and Sunday.  45 minute interval with some incline, some speedwork, and some weights.

Thankfully, it warmed up on Monday because we were ready to get out of the house.

We’d promised my son at the beginning of the week that if he had an all-blue week we’d take him to play putt-putt.

me and the kids

It was actually his first time to putt-putt. He had so much fun.

She enjoyed just running around from hole to hole, watching everything that was going on.

Hubby and I had a little bet going to see who would win. I had an early lead but I lost it. I think I got too cocky.

Now I owe him a back rub!  😉

me

For dinner on Monday, I made us salads.  Can you guess which one is mine?!?  (Hint: I think I’m addicted to sriracha).

And, while I was at it, I went ahead and made my lunch for the next day too.  (Love it when I’m on the ball like that)!

salads

That’s the weekend.  And then it was back to the grind on Tuesday.   But I’m happy to report that I got a lot done!  Including 100’s on my homework and my test.  YAY!

Friday Fun: Day Off

I took Friday off so hubby could go to a car show in Chattanooga.  It was already going to be a 3-day weekend with President’s Day on Monday.  But taking Friday gave me a 4-day weekend!!  Woo hoo!!

It was just me and the little girl all day.  It was fabulous.  Made me realize how much fun I would have if I could be a stay-at-home mom.  AND … how much I would get accomplished!

my baby playing

Not only did we have time to play, read books, work on our ABC’s and hang out together, but I also got 4 loads of laundry done, the fridge cleaned out,  the kitchen spotless and all the hardwoods swiffered.  I even had time to study while she was napping.  It was fabulous.  BEST. DAY. EVER!

salmon and egg spinach salad

my lunch

I also realized how well I would eat if I were home all day.  I made myself a wonderful lunch while drinking more than my fair share of water!!  (Detox water, at that!  Recipe to come soon.)

I picked up big brother and we all enjoyed some leftovers for dinner.

kids dinner

I enjoyed a leftover fajita from the other night.  It was still yummy!!

leftover fajita

After I put them down for bed, I caught up on 2 old episodes of Revenge (on Netflix).  I’m still on Season One.  I have 2 episodes left.  Then I have to figure out how to catch up on Season 2.  Man, that is such a good show.  I’m totally obsessed.   I just happened to find this review of Revenge that cracked me up.  I totally agree with that list of 7 things.

And as much as I enjoyed my time alone with the kids, I am so glad to have hubby back home.  All is right with the world.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!!

Katie  🙂

Weekend Recap: Unofficial Food Tour of Asheville

It’s been a crazy week and I realize I still haven’t told you about last weekend’s trip.  I started this post on Sunday night and never did finish it.  Better late than never, right?

Well, it just worked out that what started out as a business trip in Greensboro, NC, then ended with a kid-free night in Asheville, NC.

We dropped the kids off with the in-laws on Thursday.  They were excited about 2 nights with Gramma and Grampa, and we were excited for 2 uninterrupted nights of sleep!

The drive to Greensboro is about 4-1/2 hours.  It poured the entire way there.  This picture doesn’t do it justice, it was nasty.

fog on the mountains

By the time we made it to Greensboro around 8pm, we were starving.  And after that nerve-wracking drive, I was ready for a beer!

There was a restuarant across from our hotel called Tripps.  I’d never heard of Tripps before, but it clearly said ‘Tavern’ on the sign, and I was sold!  However, once inside, I asked what beers they had on tap.  There were only 4 beers on tap.  Two of which were Bud and Bud Light.  How can you call yourself a Tavern if you only have 4 beers on tap?!?!?  Thankfully there was Fat Tire.  It hit the spot!  And so did this burger!!

burger

The next morning, I didn’t have to be at the meeting til 10am.  So I had plenty of time to hit the little fitness center in the hotel before grabbing breakfast.  I got in a quick 20 minutes on the elliptical, which felt really good.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been on an elliptical so I know I was working all kinds of different muscles.  That was confirmed when my quads and glutes were sore for the two days following.

hotel breakfast bar

The hotel had a really nice breakfast spread.  Hubby chose a bacon/egg sandwhich, while I got the open-faced egg-white and mushroom.  And we shared some fruit.

breakfast

As soon as the meeting was over in Greensboro, it was time to hit the road towards Asheville.  That meeting started at 3pm.  We knew exactly where we wanted to eat lunch.  It’s my favorite place in Asheville.  Sunny Point Cafe.  Everything I’ve ever eaten there has been incredible.  The very first sandwich I ever had was chicken with brie and a raspberry mustard.  It sounds weird but it was amazing.  Unfortunately, that sandwich is no longer on the menu.

sunny point

But there plenty of other amazingly good options.

menu

I started with a Weyerbacher Merry Monk beer, which was very tasty.  It reminded me of everything I drank in Helen, GA.  Definitely a Belgian-style beer.  My favorite!  🙂

weyerbacher beer.

Hubby had the fish tacos.  (of course)  He got them last time and loved them.

fish tacos

I had …. are you ready for this ….  a Fried Green Tomato BLT on a crossaint.  Oh. My. Goodness.  It was pure deliciousness.  And those fries were perfectly crispy.

fried green tomato BLT

The last and final meeting went splendidly.  You might even say it was the best enrollment meeting I’ve ever done.  Definitely the most fun.  We all sat around on physio-balls during the meeting.  I can honestly say I’ve never conducted a meeting on a physio ball before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

When the meeting was over, we checked into our hotel and got ready for a night out on the town!

We are really bad at getting photos of ourselves taken.  I totally forget to hand my camera to a perfect stranger and ask them to take our photo.  And I completely suck at these self-portraits.

us

I just wanted to walk around downtown for a bit before going anywhere.  I love the downtown area.

First stop was LAB.  Lexington Avenue Brewery.  We went here last year and really enjoyed the food and the beer.

beer at Lab

But we didn’t order any food this year, even though this grilled cheese sounds pretty amazing ….

lab menu

Next stop ….  the Thirsty Monk.  I don’t even remember what I had here.  LOL

thirsty monk

Thankfully, our hotel was within walking distance.  🙂

The next morning called for a big breakfast.  Tupelo Honey Cafe was a block away.

tupelo honey

They start you out with a big fat homemade biscuit.  I could have eaten just the biscuit and called it breakfast.

biscuit

But then they brought me the sweet potato pancake!!  Yeah, I had to take about 2/3 of that home in a box.  It was HUGE!!  But delicious.  Totally worth each and every carb I consumed.

sweet potato pancake

There were so many yummy things on the menu that I wanted to try.  Thankfully, they opened one in Knoxville so I can try it again soon!!

After breakfast, we walked around downtown, snapping photos and window shopping.  Here are just a few of my favorite shots:

church

architecture

birds

There was a guy on a park bench feeding the birds.  They would all fly in, get some food then all fly back out together.  It was really cool to watch.

birds 2

All the walking and photographing made me thirsty.  We had time to hit only one more restaurant before heading out of town.  So we enjoyed a late lunch at the Asheville Brewing Company.

abc beer

We declared this to be the best beer we drank all weekend.  We’ll be going back there next year for sure!!

I ordered a veggie quesadilla while the hubs enjoyed a Nacho Libre burger.  I tried a bite of his burger and it was delicious!

quesadilla lunch

So that concludes our unofficial food and beer tour of Asheville.  Love that town.  I could walk around downtown all day long!

And now, after eating at Tupelo Honey Cafe and Asheville Brewing Company, I can honestly say I have more than one favorite restaurant in Asheville!!

As much as I enjoyed our short-time away, I was looking forward to seeing these little rugrats.

rugrats

So we took them to park on Sunday for some quality time.  🙂

My 7-year old had fun feeding the ducks and birds.

While my 2-year old enjoyed playing on the playground.

It was an awesome weekend.

Question of the Day:  Have you been to Asheville, NC?  If so, where is your favorite place to eat?  What should we try next time??

Last Things Thursday: Valentines Edition

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day!!  I did.  🙂

1. Last food you ate:

V-day dinner.  Grilled salmon with steamed green beans.  Delish!!!  Nothing says love like pink fish.  🙂

salmon and green beans

topped with sriracha, of course

2. Last beverage you drank

Oh my gosh, you guys!!  I found this wine with chocolate.  One tastes like chocolate covered cherries and the other is a drier wine with dark chocolate.  So yummy!  I’ve never seen it any other time of the year.  I should have stocked up!

chocolate wine

And it went perfectly with the chocolate covered strawberries I made!!!

perfect pairing
3. Last workout

I left work to run at my favorite trail.  It was a perfect 50 degrees out.  It was the best run I’ve had in a long time.  My legs felt great and I was faster than usual.  (Plus, I wanted to get home to enjoy the Vday dinner and dessert)!

4.2 mile run

4. Last thing you pinned  (Pinterest= katiedaisy921)

Love this.  I usually use Froyo as Luke’s carrot.  “If you have a good week at school, we’ll get Froyo this weekend.”

Pinned Image
5. Last text message you sent

To hubby to let him know I was done with my run and headed home.
6. Last blog you visited

I was reading Megan’s post about Valentines Day over at Food & Fitness.  I love her description of her lunch time run.  I have definitely been there with the quick changes and post-run red face.  🙂
7. Last place you visited

Asheville, NC.  Last weekend.  Post still to come.  🙂
8. Last show you watched

The Office.  After enjoying our salmon dinner, we caught up on the DVR.  We were 3 episodes behind.  They really should have put this show to bed a few seasons ago.  I’m just hanging on simply because I know it’s almost over.
9. Last thing you baked

It’s tradition in our house to bake a heart-shaped cake for Valentines Day.  I even found the picture from our first Valentines Day in 1995 where I made our first heart-shaped cake.  Which means we’ve celebrated 18 Valentines Days together.  Awwww…..

strawberry cake with strawberry icing

I also made Red Velvet Cake Balls for my son’s Valentines party at school….

10. Last photo you instagrammed  (Instagram = katiedaisy921)

Actually the last photo I instagrammed was the cake, the one before that was of the wine, and the one before that was my run.  So here is Thursday morning …. my son had a 7:15am teeth cleaning appointment.  We had to get out the door extra early today.

dentist chair

And finally, outfit of the day (#ootd).  Who doesn’t wear red on Valentines Day?  It’s like a rule, right?

ootd - vday

So what did you do on Valentines day???  Did you wear red???

What I Ate Wednesday: 2/13/13

It’s Wednesday again ….  you know what that means!!  WIAW!  Always love the linkup, courtesy of Jenn at Peas and Crayons.
So this Wednesday started a little differently than normal.  My daughter had a doctor’s appointment at 9am.  So hubby and I took advantage of the delayed start to finally go and get our blood work done.  (My company will put $1,500 into a Health Reimbursement Account if you complete a biometric screening.  It’s part of our Wellness program).  This is a fasting blood draw which means … no coffee til after it’s over.  I didn’t realize just how addicted I actually was til I couldn’t have it.

The whole plan actually worked out perfectly.  The lab was one exit down from her doctor’s office.  The blood draw was quick and easy.  When we were done, we still had 30 minutes to spare before we needed to be back for her appt.  Unfortunately our only close breakfast options were either Subway or McDonalds.  So we chose Subway, of course.  And actually, I’m glad I did.  I was worried about what kind of back-room nasty coffee they would have, but it was Seattles Best Coffee.  It was yummy!

We got a footlong and all 3 split it. (Since during the month of Feburary ALL footlongs are $5)  It’s bacon, egg white and cheese on flat bread with spinach and olives and a small squeeze of ranch.  Delish!!

subway

Too bad I had to share….   But isn’t she a cute breakfast date?!?  I don’t mind sharing with that adorable face.

breakfast date

She was overjoyed when she realized that Mickey was on TV at the doctor’s office.  As you can see, she brought her own Mickey with her.  She is absolutely obsessed with Mickey.  I think we need to get this girl to Disney World STAT!

So you can just imagine the fit she pitched when they came for her before the episode was over….  But it was fine.  The appointment went really well.  She was approved for some speech therapy – once a week til her 3rd birthday.  I’m excited for this girl to start talking.  (Of course, I’m sure once she does, we’ll be wishing we hadn’t taught her). lol

watching Mickey

Busy morning.  I was back at work by 10am.

Since I had spent my “lunch hour” at the doctor’s office this morning, I ate lunch at my desk.  I had some carrots, an apple, greek yogurt, and some Trader Joe’s Wasabi Trek Mix.  Yum.

lunch

And all of that fiber filled me up.  I didn’t even have a desire to snack on anything during the afternoon hours, not even the chocolate chip cookies that a carrier rep brought us!!!

Today is my third day of doing the Jillian Michaels Detox Water.  Basically, it’s 60 ounces of water with a tablespoon each of lemon juice and cranberry juice, along with dandelion root tea bag.  It doesn’t taste bad at all.  In fact, it goes down quite smoothly.  I have to split it up between 2 Nalgene bottles (32oz each).

detox water

The first day, I was really tired.  I wondered if that was a side effect of the detox.  But today is Day 3 and I feel great.  In fact, I do think I have a bit more energy.  Of course, it could also have something to do with the 40 oz of coffee I had this morning.  (That second 20-oz-er had an extra “Shot” of caffeine in it too).  lol

I had so much energy, in fact, that I raced home and jumped on the treadmill for an awesome interval workout.

treadmill workout

While I was on the treadmill, hubby was making dinner!!!  Love him!!!

bbq chicken

This is a shredded BBQ chicken sandwich with slaw and homemade sweet potato fries.  The chicken had been in the slow cooker all day.  It was delicious!!!   (Of course I have to top mine with sriracha sauce and jalapenos, cause that’s just how I roll)  🙂

So today is Ash Wednesday and I’m trying to decide what to give up for Lent.  I’m thinking either ice cream or french fries.  I don’t normally eat french fries or potatoes of any kind, but lately I’ve had a little more than my fair share.  I can’t give up coffee.  I won’t.  I’ve tried saying “all sweets” before, but that’s just too hard.  Inevitably, anything I give up, I decide it’s the ONE thing I absolutely have to have.

Question of the Day:  What are you giving up for Lent???

Since I’ve already shared with you the last 2 photos I instagrammed in yesterday’s post, here is a photo I took today.  I meant to share it on Instagram, but never finished the post.  I think the fog looks so cool over the mountains.
