Things Making Me Smile {2/15}

by Courtney on February 15, 2013

Happyyyyyy Friday!

I am in an absolutely fantastic mood today, let. me. tell. you. Where do I even start? Well, let’s see…Jay and I had a nice, low-key Valentine’s Day. Even though we nixed our original plans for a movie and dinner at a different location, we did wind up having a super romantic (haha) dinner out at Ruby Tuesday’s. Even though my dinner choice was kinda ehh, the salad bar always makes me smile.

This morning, I was up nice and early for a workout. I completed a slightly modified version of my 10-10-10 Strength & Cardio Circuit, and because I was feeling extra spunky for some reason, I even added in a few extra exercises.

As for the rest of what’s making me smile this morning? Well…

Baby Tooth is officially 18 weeks today! And I’m starting to be able to feel him/her moving a lot more often now, which is so cool.

Today is my last day of work before I’m on vacaaaaation…here.

And when I checked the weather for when we’ll be down there?

mexico weather

It’s lookin’ miiiighty fine. ;)

Being down there ALSO means I’ll get to dine, once again, on their fabulous crepes.

Mmmm…get in mah belly!

But I promise, there’s more than just Mexico making me smile today…here’s a peek at a few fun Pinterest finds from the past couple of weeks (it’s been a while!)…

Dinner looks lovely, salad bar may not quite be haute cuisine but I love being able to choose my own goodies (hello beetroot!). So cool that you are 18 week now, it has gone so fast!

Ruby Tuesdays is romantic if you ask me :-) And who wouldn’t be in a good mood with that weather forecast! I’m ready for summer!!! Thanks so much for the humor. Seriously… the husband and pots and pans ones. So true.

Feeling the baby move is so cool, isn’t it? I’m just over 30 weeks now and he moves ALL the time. It’s a weird feeling, but also a very good feeling. Have fun on your vacation, I’m jealous!

love Ruby Tuesday! Their pumpernickel croutons are amazing, they taste like Pizza hut pan pizza crust to me!! lol

22 Courtney February 15, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Haha, they are definitely one of the best parts of that salad bar! Never thought of the pizza hut correlation though…interesting! ;)

23 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 15, 2013 at 10:25 am

Ruby Tuesday’s salad bar ALWAYS makes me smile. It is literally the only reason that I go there. I honestly think that as far as chain restaurants go, their salad bar is top-notch! But then again, any salad bar that offers peas almost instantly wins me over! ;) And their croutons?? So good!

I have a question regarding the resort you stay at for Mexico! I was wondering if you felt like it was geared more towards “couples” and possibly families or if it does have a younger “singles” crowd as well. My single girls and I are planning a trip and we are researching different options and this place looks so nice!! Thanks!

Reply

38 Courtney February 15, 2013 at 1:33 pm

I don’t remember seeing any kids and I do remember it being mostly couples, if that helps! :)
