141.0...A Spooktacular Bunco

Dinner could not have been easier on Monday night. Thank goodness I had Costco spinach and cheese ravioli in the freezer because there wasn’t much else in the house. I always have jarred marinara and frozen broccoli on hand as well. Ta-Da!

The ravioli was quite good!!

Yesterday’s breakfast:

I went to the gym then came home to get dressed. I dropped my daughter off at a friends house and my son and I had lunch at Poseidon. They had a new salad on the menu which looked good so I ordered it:

Avocado & Cilantro Salad with Salmon (mixed baby greens, oranges (omitted), jicama, cucumber, radish, feta cheese, cilantro, peppered vinaigrette, candied walnuts):

I took my son to basketball practice in the afternoon then got ready for Bunco!

This wasn’t just any Bunco, it was Halloween Bunco complete with a costume contest!

I wasn’t very inspired so I came as a witch. Lol.

Marcela hosted and she went over the top with decorations and a crazy attention to detail. Her home was decorated from head to toe for Halloween.

The winner of the costume contest was clearly Pamela.

That was her wedding dress for goodness sake. And it was her birthday!

Thank you Marcela for such a fun evening! You really should be a party planner! 

(Thanks to all the peeps who shared their photos with me as well.)

Breakfast today:

I took the kids to school, then it was off to the gym for a boring, yet effective run on the treadmill. Always glad when that is over.

I got my nails done, ran some errands, then stopped for lunch at Marketplace Grill.

Grilled Chicken Green Salad. Love.

I almost forget to buy the kids pumpkins to carve! I picked up a couple today and we will carve them tonight. I actually despise this job. I think the inside of pumpkins smell awful.

Do you like to carve pumpkins? Do you still do it?

141.6...Lady Luck

What a fun weekend! We went to Atlanta for the Chargers vs. Falcons game and it was a blast! We left on Friday morning. I had my usual breakfast:

IMG 1131

Later on on the way to the airport, I had a That’s It Bar. 1 apple and 1 pear are the ingredients. Nothing else. It’s pretty good and only 100 calories. 

IMG 1135

Before getting on the plane, I had a turkey sub.

We arrived in Atlanta and checked into the Westin Buckhead. We were with a group so we met most of them at the hotel bar for a few drinks before calling it a night.

Saturday morning I had some coffee in the room and a Kind bar. 

IMG 1141

I went to the hotel gym for some weights and cardio then got dressed at headed next door to the Lenox mall for lunch and some shopping. My husband was golfing with the group so I had the day all to myself.

I stopped at True Food Kitchen for lunch. I ordered the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with Shrimp (Persian cucumber, peppadew, cherry tomato, pole bean, feta, almond, oregano vinaigrette):

IMG 1143

Great salad! 

I spent the rest of the day shopping. It was glorious!

Eventually, I walked back to the hotel and got ready for dinner. The whole group went out to The Capital Grille

For my appetizer, I ordered the Steak Tartare:

IMG 1147

It was delicious!

For my entree, I ordered Sushi-Grade Sesame Seared Tuna with Gingered Rice:

IMG 1148

It quite possibly was the biggest piece of tuna I’ve ever seen. I almost ate the whole thing. :) Yum!

Dessert might have been the best part.

IMG 1149

My husband and I shared The Capital Grille Cheesecake (Brûlée style with fresh berries). It was the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. Why have I never thought to brûlée cheesecake!?!

Sunday morning we went to breakfast at Seasons 52 with my brother in law and his family (who live near Atlanta). I ordered the Vegetable Frittata (pasture-raised eggs, aged cheddar, roasted red peppers & potatoes, mushrooms, accompanied by grilled asparagus and Sriracha hollandaise):

IMG 1152

Very good! It was a short but sweet visit with family but right after breakfast it was time to head back to the hotel to meet our group. We headed to the Georgia Dome for the game!

We were able to go onto the field before the game which was exciting!

IMG 1165

I actually got to continue my stint on the field for the rest of the game helping out with the media for the Chargers!

IMG 1170

Being on the field for the whole game was really exciting!

IMG 1171

That’s me in my lovely green vest!

The game came down to the wire in overtime with the Chargers winning it by 33-30. Everyone ran onto the field including me. Not sure if I was supposed to but I just went!

What an experience! Crazy!!!

We left and headed to the airport for our flight home. I ate a chicken caesar salad on the plane:

IMG 1223

We got home super late last night. The kids don’t have school today which was a blessing for sure!


IMG 1225

I went to the gym and came home to get dressed. 

Lunch was Subway. Turkey and avocado sandwich:

 Making an easy dinner tonight and heading to bed early for sure!

Did your team(s) win yesterday?
