Here we go!

So we had an awesome time in Nashville even though the weather was rainy! We hit the Honky Tonks on Broadway, toured RCA Studio B & Ryman Auditorium, ate our weight in delicious southern food, and enjoyed some time away together. Oh, and did I mention I snagged myself some of these…IMG_0618I have always wanted them and am so thrilled to have gotten two pair of beautiful boots in the Music City!

We missed the warm weather here in San Francisco. Of course it was gorgeous while we were away & now it feels like 35 outside. That’s okay, we soaked up the sun in Sonoma this weekend. We had such a great time with our friends and picked up from 3 of our 5 wine club memberships.IMG_0616With all the excitement we have been indulging a bit. Over the next few weeks we’re making a solid effort to stick with a healthier dietary routine starting today. Here’s what was on the grocery list:

  • Broccoli, Asparagus, Green Beans, Cucumber, Spinach, Kale, Bell Pepper, Cherry Tomatoes, Mixed Greens, Avocados, Iceberg Lettuce, Butternut Squash, Carrot, Celery, Dill, Parsley, Cilantro, Chives, Apples, Mandarins, Lemons, Limes, White Beans, Black Beans, Garbanzo Beans, Quinoa, Whole Wheat Penne, Whole Wheat Bread, Chicken (Phil), Shrimp (Me), & Tuna.

I will be making my first quinoa bowls EVER, so look for some recipes coming your way, & am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

 

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂

CHAMPIONS!!!!!

Image result for eagles super bowlSo excited for the first time in history the Eagles are Super Bowl champions! Phil and I hosted a small gathering so anyone who had to listen to me scream and yell at least was well fed & there voluntarily!IMG_0788The Super Bowl was the kick off to what will be a busy month for us! We had dinner at International Smoke Monday night to celebrate a friends birthday! It was so cool to eat at  Ayesha Curry’s restaurant but we were out so late I hardly got any sleep. Phil and I were fortunate enough to check out the Color Factory yesterday. We do our best to take in all the art and culture San Francisco has to offer and this particular exhibition has food too so how can you beat that! Even more exciting than that we’re heading to Nashville on Saturday!!! Neither of us have visited Nashville before and we’ll have a few dog free days to explore, spend time together, & take in some music. Rounding out the month we have a wine country trip planned and time on the slopes in Tahoe!IMG_0527I’m doing my best to keep up with eating healthy but with all the Super Bowl leftovers in the house its very tempting. Thankfully I’ve sent Phil to the office with all of the cupcakes, cookies & dips so the worst of it is out of the fridge!

By the way, I am fully aware I missed two weeks but am happy to give myself a break!

 

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂
