144.6...Fifty Shades of Eh

Wednesday night’s dinner making process was easy. I had defrosted some Three Bean and Beef Chili so I just heated it up and dinner was done.

Can’t beat that. 

Yesterday’s breakfast was scrambled egg beaters with spinach, onion and jack cheese.

After I took the kids to school, I went to a Sculpt class at the gym. It was awesome. It was all weights and it was really challenging. 

I got some groceries at Trader Joe’s afterwards including this Salad with BBQ Flavored Chicken:

I was skeptical but it was pretty good!! 

Last night, we celebrated Cathi’s birthday with dinner and a movie. We met at her house for some drinks. She had a whole “movie spread” out.

Everyone dressed in grey. Why? To see Fifty Shades of Grey, of course!

Yes, there were a lot of us. We basically filled up the entire theater.

What did I think of the movie you ask? 

Eh. I had low expectations going in and wasn’t disappointed. I still recommend seeing it though with twenty of your friends.

After the movie, we went to Davanti for dinner.

I took the kids to school and volunteered for a bit. That was followed by a dentist appointment and lunch at home. Chicken salad and mixed greens:

Tonight my husband and I are going to see a movie and have dinner. A double whammy!

Have you seen Fifty Shades? Thoughts?
