hey friends! i’m so glad you all liked my 101 in 1001 list! i can’t wait to see all of your lists after you make them too. if you liked mine, you should also check out heather, jessica, kelly, and julie’s lists! they’re the ones that inspired me to do mine.
today was a full day! i left madison around 7:30am to head down to st. louis for the weekend. since i wanted to get going early, i packed up food to eat in the car and stopped at starbucks before leaving for some energy!
overnight oats for breakfast, hot coffee, and a slice of pizza for lunchy!
the ride was uneventful, which is always a good thing. 🙂 when i got to st. louis, i headed to a starbucks to work for a couple hours before i went to brad’s clinic for an adjustment.
i ended up getting an iced coffee this time, and then got a free refill before i left. did you know that if you get a starbucks gift card and register it, you earn “stars” and can get rewards? at the green level you get free syrup pumps, free soy milk, free refills on coffee and iced coffee (and tea?), and more! i totally take advantage of the rewards….
after my adjustment, brad and i had big plans for dinner! i had a restaurant.com coupon to use at vegadeli, and since this is my last time visiting before he graduates (!!!), we had to use it now or never! i had never been to vegadeli and brad was not excited about it, but we tried it out anyway.
we ordered a juice and a smoothie since we had to spend $35. we also got cornbread to share. i ordered the sunrise wrap for my meal and brad got raw veggie alfredo.
the stuffed veggie cornbread was pretty good and brad’s raw alfredo was actually really delicious! the “alfredo” sauce was actually a cashew sauce. my sunrise wrap was just ok. it came with a sun-dried tomato spread, spinach, avocado, fake cheese (yuck), and black olives. it was nothing special and i could have totally made it better myself for less than $8.99. i have officially decided that i am 100% not a fan of fake cheese. please make mine real or leave it off….
the juice was ah-mazing! it was the red zinger and had ginger, strawberries, and apple. brad’s chocolate strawberry smoothie was just so-so.
we both said the overall meal was ok but that we probably wouldn’t eat there again. we would get that juice again though!
we were still a little hungry after dinner, so we stopped at benito’s for some gelato!
woah huge portions! we each got mediums, and were both shocked at how huge they were. i had blackberry, cookies & cream, and paradiso (almond + coconut). brad got forestberry, chocolate walnut brownie, and peanut butter chip. neither of us could finish our who dish and we left stuffed!
now we’re at home and i’m writing/reading bloggies, and brad is playing video games. it’s going to be a low-key night.
what is your favorite juice combination?
after we had that juice tonight, i asked brad if he wants to get a juicer, and he said yes for sure! maybe we’ll add one to our wedding registry….
