I’m a little behind on my blogging!
Daniel and I went to the K-State Open House, an event where each college showcases their programs to the public. My main stop was the Grain Science Department, where I pretty much lived during my undergrad. The Bakery Science Club always holds a huge bake sale so of course I had to hit that up! I hadn’t had their cookies in almost a year! I bought Monster cookies and S’mores cookies, as well as some brownies… delicious!
And we took advantage of the sweet photo-op. And yes, I am holding a bag full of goodies.
So that basically means I needed to eat two cookies right off the bat. We went there in the morning and didn’t have breakfast beforehand, so why not cookies?
Then we met up with some friends at the local Hibatchi Hut. It’s bean around since 1959 but resently moved to a new location and reopened. Same great menu, nicer building! It was pretty swanky. Unfortunately, I temporarily lost my phone while we were there so I didn’t get any photos. I ordered the veggie burger with tater tots. It was good but a lot so I saved half of it for my dinner later.
After lunch I checked the car for my phone but couldn’t find it. We were giving one of our friends a ride home so before we dropped her off we stopped at our apartment to give her some of the cookies we had bought earlier and I checked for my phone real quick, thinking I had left it there. Still couldn’t find it so when I come back to the car I have my friend call it. We hear the vibrations of it ringing but it’s no where in sight. I search under the seat, between the door, everywhere! I tell them that it feels like my phone is inside the car’s door because it is vibrating. I get out of the car, close the door, open the door, look around puzzled some more. Close the door. Then–what’s that sitting on the side view mirror?!? My phone!!!
How did it get there?! I have no idea. But it some how managed to ride that way on the mirror without falling off, all the way back to our apartment. It’s a miracle!
My friend offered the suggestion that it probably fell off my lap when I was getting out of the car when we arrived for lunch and someone found it on the ground right next to the car and placed it on the mirror, thinking I would see it. Thank you kind stranger! I’m too oblivious to my surroundings to notice my phone sitting on the mirror within my line of sight. But I’m glad to have it back–and without a scratch!
So clearly, after all that excitement I needed to eat another cookie and a brownie.
For dinner I had my leftovers.
Later that night we had a new 21-year-old visiting us, so a bunch of friends went out to celebrate. I ended up drinking 2 mang-o-ritas, one shot, and one beer. This one bar has a shot-ski, a ski that holds four shots! Everyone has to take their shot together by lifting the ski up in a group effort.
And then…. I convinced everyone we needed Burger King. Yes, it was my fault! I enjoyed 3 chicken strips and some fries. Why must it always be on the way home?! That’s it, no more drinking! I always want Burger King! But we all know I’m lying. I mean, Daniel’s birthday is this Saturday so of course I’ll celebrate. Somebody give me the strength to resist the BK please!
I ate a little better on Sunday. We needed to grocery shop so we bought breakfast/lunch at the store in the form of soup and sushi! I chose the vegetable soup and Daniel and I split a pack of shrimp/crab sushi.
Then late in the afternoon I needed two cookies. This is why I rarely buy sweets. If it’s in the house, I will destroy it until it’s all gone!
For dinner we tried to keep it healthy with spaghetti squash, veggies, and potatoes.
Then I snacked on cashews and went to bed. No working out again. Whoops.
Monday started with a fruit smoothie for breakfast–a ton of strawberries, a banana, and lots of coconut milk! It was a creamy dream.
For lunch, I packed left over spaghetti squash. And for a snack I ate some raw green pepper strips and hummus…. with a cookie for dessert! What’s my cookie count up to now? I don’t want to know…
Then I had some brownie in the evening and some cashews before my night class. That counts a complex carb and protein right? Just kidding!
For dinner, I chose to eat Chipotle even though we just went grocery shopping. We really need to meal plan. I ate half a veggie bowl and saved the rest.
So now we’re all caught up! And I failed at working out. But I have better news for tomorrow! For now, it’s bed time!
