We Earned It

I guess you could say that the extra $47.00 I earned yesterday afternoon was burning a serious hole in my pocket. Unexpected cash? I mean, sure, we could have put it towards the grocery shopping I still have yet to do this week, OR…

We could make it a low-key dinner + movie date night. Hey, we earned it!

“Welcome to Moooooooe’s!”


I was really craving some sort of burrito bowl but couldn’t figure out what would be an equivalent on their menu, so I ordered a Joey Jr. with chicken, black beans, rice, grilled peppers and onions, lettuce, pico, roasted corn salsa, and a sprinkle of cheese.

The mini burrito was amazing, and so were the chips, but I only ate about half of them (the chips) because I had some movie snacks to enjoy. Winking smile


So which movie did we see?


Friends with Benefits!

We both agreed that although it was predictable, just as many romantic comedies are, we both totally loved the movie! I laughed out loud at least a dozen times (which I don’t do much with movies) and the two of them appeared to have really good chemistry on screen. I’d totally recommend it…five stars! Smile

Of course, with the movies comes movie snacks. Before leaving the house, I popped up a bag of 100-Calorie kettle corn and sprinkled it with some cinnamon, semi-sweet and butterscotch chips. So, SO good. I ate about half of the bag because I had to save room for my movie dessert.


FYI: Peanut butter m&m’s are amazing.


The theater was actually sold out, which I was shocked about, it being a Tuesday evening and all. Definitely a little different from the last time I went to the movies.


This morning, I woke up hungry so I decided to hold off on the workout in favor of some breakfast.


My glass of iced coffee was poured immediately.


And then I put together today’s cereal combo: Kashi Honey Sunshine + Fiber One 80 Calorie Honey Squares + (more!) blueberries + almond milk.


This bowl had some serious volume, but since both of these cereals are a little lower in calories, I tend to be a little generous with my portions. Winking smile


Okay, one last thing!…

  • Eat 30 pounds of cheese in one sitting -OR- a bucket of peanut butter (without water)?
  • Always have to say everything on your mind -OR- never speak again?
  • Not be able to use your phone -OR- your e-mail?

    Thinking of eating a bucket of PB makes me want to gag a little bit. If it’s one huge 30 pound babybel cheese round, I’d be on that like white on rice.

    Oh my God, if I had to say everything on my mind, I’d probably offend 94.5% of the people I come in contact with – but it’d be better than never speaking again!

    I’d be okay with never using email again. I can’t give up human interaction!

  2. says

    ■ Peanut butter without a drink, I’m never thirsty anyways…
    ■ Say everything on my mind, I pretty much do that already
    ■ No e-mail, I’m 100% dependant on my iPhone!

  3. says

    im dying to see friends with benefits & the movie with steve carrel & ryan gosling. I haven’t been to the movies in what seems like forever.

    once again, I love your cereal mix bowl. it looks delicious.

  4. says

    Oh, that movie seems super good!

    PB M&Ms are GREAT!!!! <3 them :)

    1. Peanut Butter!!!!
    2. I will have to go with speak everything on my mind, it might offend people but I could NEVER talk again; that would suck.
    3. Email! But, since I have a Crackberry I get emails anyways lol

  5. says

    So glad friends with benefits was good! I’m always excited to hear when a chick flick is quality, because these days, there aren’t too many. Maybe I’ll go see it with my mother while I’m home :-)

    I’d rather eat a bucket of PB with no water than a bunch of cheese. I think cheese might make me sick first.

    I’d rather always have to say everything on my mind…I kinda already do anyway 😉

    I’d rather not be able to use my PHONE. It would free me from waiting for calls and texts from boys!

  6. says

    Did you ever see ‘No Strings Attached?’ When I saw the previews to FWB, I thought it looked just like No Strings Attached…it as really good though. :) Oh, and I LOVE Mila Kunis! She is awesome!!!
    I love bringing my own snack to the movies- so much better & so much cheaper :) :)

  7. says

    LOVE moes! ■Eat 30 pounds of cheese in one sitting -OR- a bucket of peanut butter (without water)? cheese i guess
    ■Always have to say everything on your mind -OR- never speak again? if i said everything on my mind i’d probably never have anyone to talk to every again : P
    ■Not be able to use your phone -OR- your e-mail? phone

  8. says

    I love love love Moe’s! And I also love homemade movie theatre snacks :)

    I’d take peanut butter anyday over cheese

    always say everything on my mind-I talk a lot!

    email for sure. Phones are so useful to me!

  9. says

    Your meal from Moe’s looks SO good!

    We watched Friends with Benefits last weekend… it was a great movie. Very funny! Justin Timberlake wasn’t bad on the eyes either.


    I would rather:

    Eat the cheese.
    Always Speak my mind.
    Not use my email… it’s mostly junk anyways.

  10. says

    a bucket of peanut butter (without water)
    Always have to say everything on your mind

    I never tried PB m&ms… what’s wrong with me? 😛

  11. says

    It looks like you guys had such a fun night! I’m always up for anything involving guacamole! Peanut Butter M & M’s are so dang good!

  12. says

    I think Friends with Benefits is awesome too! Definitely go see Crazy, Stupid, Love when it hits theaters — I saw it last night for a media screening and thought it was great. I liked FWB, but I LOVED CSL. Two thumbs way, way up.

    I would rather….
    Eat the peanut butter! (Gotta love PB M&Ms too!)
    Always say everything on my mind
    Never use email

  13. says

    Honestly, the thought of eating 30 pounds of cheese in one sitting terrifies and delights me all at the same time. Can you tell that I’m a cheese freak?

    I already say everything that’s on my mind (my mom claims that I was born without a think before you speak filter) so that’s an easy choice.

    My phone is basically another limb so I’d much rather live without email.

  14. says

    I basically eat a bucket of pb without water every day anyway…so I know I can handle it!

    I would rather say everything on my mind, mortifying though that may be!

    And I’d definitely say adios to e-mail over my precious phone!

    SO want to see that movie – glad to hear you liked it!

  15. says

    Friends with Benefits was hysterical! I loved, but of course it reminded me a lot of No Strings Attached. There were better one liners in this one though. As for the would you rather…. 1) peanut butter definitely… that much cheese just sounds horrific! 2) Everything on my mind… not being able to voice an opinion is just a no! 3) good-bye e-mail! I would actually really welcome that sometimes!

  16. says

    Looks like an awesome night! I love that you take snacks to the movies, I do too!!

    PB, hands down. Then again, I don’t like cheese. (I know, I’m strange.)
    Say everything. That would be hard, but I tend to do this more than I should now anyway :)
    Email. I would rather talk to my friends and family.

  17. says

    I love this game!

    1. peanut butter
    2. say everything
    3. I would keep my phone!
    Haha a personal would you rather: Friends with Benefits or No Strings Attached? Since I am kinda in love with both those movies, but I would still probably go for No Strings Attached because I still am a die hard fan of Natalie Portman:)

    • Courtney says

      Oooo, good one!
      I’m gonna have to go with Friends with Benefits…it made me laugh a lot harder. Especially when JT was doing the Kris Kross rap. 😉

  18. says

    Mmmm I love a good Mexican dinner treat! “Found” money always burns a hole in my pocket too!

    1. Definitely the cheese – can I at least mix up the flavors? Like a 30 pound cheese sampler? And it best come with wine.

    2. Giving up speaking would be like giving up eating. It’ll never happen. Always saying what’s on my mind is sure to offend, I’m very good at censoring myself. But it’s still better than never speaking!

    3. I guess I’d give up email. Im attached to my phone like a baby to a binky!

  19. kylee says

    just wanted to let you know you can get burrito bowls at moes too! all you have to do is ask for any of the burritos as a “streaker” so they dont put it in the shell! (also i think you get more when you do this! haha) i always get joey jr streaker with chicken!! sooooo good!

  20. says

    What is that Honey Sunshine cereal like? I have tried the Berry Blossoms…do you know if they are similar at all?

    1. Peanut butter…it is my favorite! :)
    2. I would rather say whatever is on my mind but that might cause some controversy! lol
    3. I would go without email even though I have access to my email on my phone…does that count? 😉

    • Courtney says

      I’ve never had the Berry Blossoms, but I think it’s the same type of cereal, just a different flavor, right? The honey sunshine kind of reminds me of a grown up captain crunch…from what I can remember when I was younger. It’s GOOD! :)

  21. rebecca says

    I luuuuurve burritos, and if I had to choose, I’d eat a bucket of peanut butter (not like i’ve done that before….), rather say everything that’s on my mind and definetly not be able to use email- barely use them!

  22. says

    oooo what a fun and delicious night! And what a great popcorn snack to bring with the extra goodies, love that! :)

    1. Even without water I would rather eat a bucket of peanut butter…I just love the stuff too darn much 😉

    2. ooo this is a hard one! I think I’d rather never speak again and communicate through writing and sign language. I wouldn’t want to hurt someone’s feelings if I blurted out something mean or inappropriate!

    3. I would rater no be able to use my e-mail…I think we’re already too dependent on emailing and could go back to written letters which would be nice! And if I needed to send a quick message I could text with my phone 😉

  23. Kait says

    It is sad how easy a few of these questions were for me. . .

    I’d much rather eat a bucket of peanut butter. I think I might have actually done that before. . . oops!

    I cannot wait to see Friends with Benefits! I never paid much attention to Mila Kunis, but after seeing a few interviews/articles about her in this movie, I am excited! It looks hilarious and I am ALWAYS in the mood to laugh!

  24. Audrey says

    Hmmm… this one’s hard!
    1. Bucket of peanut butter….over a lifetime-there was no time limit!
    2. Always say whatever is in my head, maybe I’ll learn to “always look on the bright side” 😉
    3. I guess never use my phone, because I love to write long, prose-like e-mails that are more like letters and I don’t like texting (shocking since I’m 18!)
