Hi friends! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
After my dress fitting went well last week and I was still sticking to a pretty healthy low cal diet, I indulged during a quick dinner before marriage class Thursday night with one of all time favorite foods – grilled cheese. This one came on huge italian bread with gouda, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes. So greasy and delicious!
I can’t STAND pickles. I hate when they touch my sandwich and that bite is maimed by pickle flavor. The fiance’ saved the day and ate it for me!
Friday I had scheduled to have the day off, so I spent the morning seeing this:
Did you see it? Did you LOVE it?
I’ve seen a few of them at midnight showings and decided it’s more enjoyable when you’re not totally exhausted and have to get there two hours early, so my mom, cousin, and two friends of ours went at 10:45 Friday morning. I thought the movie was excellent – they did a fantastic job. There have been a few HP movies that drag in parts, but this one had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I’m kind of glad I read the book so long ago because it still kept me in suspense. It is sad to think that there will be no more movie premieres, but they have been so much fun! I think it’s time to read the books a second time.
Friday the fiance’ and I went and grabbed some fro-yo and saw this beautiful sunset on the way home.
I didn’t take a picture of my yogurt because I was too distracted and angry about getting a parking ticket for an expired meter!
Dear whoever decided to make meters in Pittsburgh go until 10 PM and whoever ticketed me the very SECOND that my time ran out,
See the Cathedral of Learning in the beautiful picture above? Love my alma mater (aka the second most expensive public university in the country).
Saturday night and all day yesterday I spent prepping for, setting up, celebrating, and cleaning up my friend’s bridal shower. She is getting married August 6th and I’m HONORED to be a bridesmaid for the first time – just happens to be less than a month before my own wedding!
I love her to pieces but we didn’t want our bridal party to be too large and I really struggled over not being able to ask her to be in my wedding. I’m sure that she is appreciating it now that she’s not worrying about TWO big days, but it’s still in the back of my mind. We’ve talked about it and it’s not a big deal to her though.
In other food-related news, I *finally* got to the bottom of a peanut butter jar and enjoyed overnight oats in it for the first time!
To the remaining ~1.5 Tbsp of PB&Co Cinnamon Raisin I added 1/3 cup pre-cooked voluminous oats, a few drops of liquid stevia, vanilla, (more) cinnamon, and 1 tsp of chia seeds.
Super thick oats at my desk this morning!
Absolutely everything I had hoped for. Now I need to restock!
I’m SO excited to visit the PB&Co store when I visit friends in New York this weekend!
And just because Mondays after a long weekend are extra tough, I grabbed an iced coffee at Dunkin’ on my way in.
Random questions from my random post:
What did you think of the new HP movie (if you saw it)?
Do you think you have to ask someone to be in your wedding if they ask you?
What’s your favorite PB&Co flavor ?
