Happy, happy Wednesday to you all! And welcome to another fantastic edition of WIAW.
And I’m gonna go ahead and share all of yesterday’s eats with you.
Breakfast – 8:15am
I never ended up making or planning my breakfast the night before, so I quickly threw together some stuff in the morning to make some oatmeal.
Into the oats went:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- cinnamon and nutmeg
- strawberries and bananas
Cooked in the microwave for about 3 minutes (I like my oatmeal thicker so I let it cook longer) and I was good to go.
Of course, since there is a jar of peanut butter in my desk, I made sure to add that after everything was cooked.
Mid-Morning Snack – 10:00am
My oatmeal did basically nothing to hold me over, so in less than two hours I was ready to eat again. First, I snacked on the other half of my banana from breakfast.
And then I made the mistake of digging into my trail mix. You can multiply that amount by about, ohh I don’t know…let’s say 10?
I give the bag until the end of the week. Oooof.
Lunch – 1:00pm
I was suuuuper excited about this one.
I prepped a nice, big salad made with lettuce, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, carrots, feta cheese, dried cranberries, roasted turkey, and avocado.
On the bottom, I made sure to add my balsamic vinaigrette dressing, too.
Mid-Afternoon Snack – 3:00pm
I was craving something sweet but trying really hard to avoid the bag of trail mix again. Thankfully, I had an orange to snack on instead.
It was a good one too, which just made things all that much better!
Dinner – 6:30pm
Jay and I had originally planned to cook up some steaks for dinner, but we got a late start and needed to make sure we saved time for our special evening trip out (more on that in a second!).
So instead, we both worked on eating up some leftover pizza. I swear, it was even better the second time around.
Shortly after we finished dinner, we headed out for one of my final requests for Birthday Week…
Now tell me…have you ever seen anything so wonderful?????
Dessert – 8:00pm
Jay and I have only been to Dante’s Fro Yo once, which was on our super fun date night adventure over the summer, but we both agreed that Dante’s is hands down our favorite fro yo place. The flavors of their fro yo beat out any other ones out there by FAR, and when I even saw that they had white chocolate covered pretzel last night, I almost died.
Okay, I’m being ridiculous on that one. But seriously. It’s the best.
I got a mix of white chocolate covered pretzel + birthday cake fro yo flavors, with all sorts of chocolate candy toppings because that’s how I roll.
Typically I would have asked for some fro yo on my actual birthday (which is today!), but mom is making me one of her special birthday cakes tonight, which is 10,000x better. I seriously cannot WAIT for dinner and dessert tonight with the fam!
Question for the Morning:
Do you ever have any special birthday requests?
