144.2…Eight Years Ago Today

Eight years ago, I married my best friend.




I cannot believe eight years has gone by. My wedding was one of the happiest days of my life. This calls for a celebration, don’t you think? :)

Dinner last night was amazing.

I made a recipe for Chicken-Cashew Stir Fry from Cooking Light’s May 2000 issue.

It was so simple to make and tasted like something I’d eat in a restaurant. I was so impressed! I ate it on top of brown rice. Try it!!!

Breakfast was Fage yogurt, the last of the Trader Joe’s low-fat berry granola (which ended up being stale), strawberries and raspberries.

I took the kids to the bus for camp and went to Cardio Muscle class. I was already really sore from yesterday (200 squats!) so the beginning of  the class was challenging but my muscles finally loosened up and I was able to get a good sweat in.

Lunch was Subway.

Side Note: I really wish Subway would ask people if there order was “for here or to go” so they wouldn’t waste all those plastic bags. I always have to decline the bag and they get all flustered. Habit I guess. :)

I went to Target to buy my son’s school supplies (is it that time already??). I loved buying my school supplies when I was a kid. Even now going through all the pens and markers gets me a little giddy. :)

On the way home, I decided it was very important for me to stop for frozen yogurt. It had been way too long!

I stopped at Sweet Things and got a variety of flavors in my cup: Cake Batter, Belgian Chocolate, Cappuccino, and New York Cheesecake. YUM!

After I pick up the kiddos, I need to get ready for my anniversary date with my hubby tonight. We are going to Ruths’ Chris Steakhouse and I am beyond excited. I can already taste it now…..

Favorite frozen yogurt flavor?

We went to a new TCBY yesterday actually, and I had a mix of White Chocolate Mousse and Peanut Butter frozen yogurt, so delicious! I'd also have to think of what my last meal would be...no clue!!
