i was so so so excited for breakfast yesterday!
want to know why???
i had an [almost] empty peanut butter jar! since i’m out of oats, i had bob’s red mill hot 10 grain cereal in a jar. also known as brmhtgciaj! hmm, maybe that acronym won’t catch on…. i made the cereal with a mashed banana and chocolate almond breeze (the only kind of milk i have right now!). i topped it with a scoop of dark chocolate dreams and frozen blueberries!
lunch was equally delicious. it was an apple, a lemon chobani, and some carrots and celery sticks with roasted garlic hummus.
enjoyed with water and tea!
my afternoon snack was about 5 pickles with a side of laughing cow cheese.
seriously. pickles + cheese is where it’s at. so tasty!
for dinner i had beets with goat cheese (unphotographed) and some of my delicious snow day bean soup!
as part of project-eat-up-my-pantry, i decided to thaw two kinds of soup i have in my freezer for dinners this week! this one froze really well. 🙂
so of course i had to try a couple of these as well!
on saturday, i checked off a couple “big” things from my wedding checklist! 🙂 brad and i were at home in manitowoc, so on friday i called our wedding florist and asked if she could meet on saturday to make decisions about our wedding flowers. it was the best meeting i could have imagined. i went with my mom and brad’s mom (brad opted to stay home and watch basketball…). our florist was so helpful and she took all of the information i told her i liked (see what i like here) and came up with a great plan. i left feeling so so so excited about our wedding flowers and reception centerpieces.
i don’t want to give away all of the details because i want some surprises at the wedding, but here’s a hint of some flowers we’re using!
white mini calla lilies
green button mums
green hyperium berries
after our meeting with the florist, we headed to hobby lobby to do some browsing for inspiration for a couple things for centerpieces. we have a great plan for what we’re going to do. i’m pumped! but, if anyone has any suggestions for a website where i can order pillar candles for cheap, i’d appreciate the tip!
andddd…. we dragged brad away from the television to go choose tuxedos! we picked a spiffy calvin klein tux for all of the groomsmen, ushers, and fathers to wear. we ended up choosing one of the looks i proposed when i asked for your opinions! any guesses to what we chose?
30 day challenge: day 22
today i have to post a picture of something that i wish i was better at. well, there are lots of things i wish i was better at. i think the one that i really REALLY always wish i was better at is….
…dancing. i do not have very good rhythm and it really takes quite a bit of liquid encouragement for me to get my dancing shoes on. brad likes to dance, but i usually feel too self conscious of my “moves” to dance in public very often! i’m not opposed to private dance parties in the living room though…! 😉
are you a good dancer?
have you ever tried pickles with cheese?
seriously, try it. then come back and thank me!
