Again we come to the conclusion of the weekend, and are faced with the beginning of another week. Now is the time to reflect on the weekend and enjoy a glass of vino, or two 🙂
– I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my fiancé, Josh, and some of our friends. We went to Dave and Buster’s for one of our friend’s birthdays on Saturday. I found it interesting that Dave and Buster’s now puts the calories next to every food item on the menu. The appetizer sampler clocked in with the most at 3000+ calories! I would say that is definitely a dish for sharing! Most of the meals were between 1000-1500 calories, which is still around 50-75% of ones caloric needs for the day. However, they did a a few meals that were under 600 calories, and I tried one of those. Seeing calories next to an item on a menu really does make it a lot harder to indulge, which is a good thing! I got the mango grilled sharp skewers and it came with spiced rice and broccoli. It was actually quite tasty!
– Josh and I also indulged this weekend and had a Starbucks date. I had a tall non-fat Chi Tea Latte (my favorite) and a sausage and egg breakfast sandwich. This was my first time having the sandwich and I will have to say I was quite impressed, but this is definitely a food to enjoy in moderation only. It was pretty tasty but also provided about 500 calories. But don’t worry, I enjoyed every last bite 🙂
-I finally got to stop at a Great Harvest Bread company this weekend. I have been wanting to try their bread after hearing about them on the blog world and I finally passed one today. Can you tell I’m a serious foodie? As I walked into the store I was offered a sample of Cinnamon-Pull-A-Parts, and it was delicious. But I was there for the Chocolate Babka! Mmmm so good when the chocolate is all melted out of the toaster oven! Definitely will be going back there again!
-The rest of the weekend consisted of wedding planning. So excited to finally be booking the venue and making progress. Definitely going to be a lot of work, but I’m really starting to enjoy the process, I just can’t let it stress me out. But then again a glass of wine can always help with that 🙂
Well those are some highlights from the weekend, hope you all had a great one as well! Cheers!
Anybody try any new restaurants or foods this weekend?
