7 years ago

On Friday the 12th, it was seven years ago that Josh asked me to marry him!

(I haven’t been able to wear my engagement ring for a long time, but it looks something like that one, ha ha)

It’s hard to believe it has been that long but then sometimes, mostly due to all the changes I’ve made in my life, it seems like a lifetime ago!

Anyway, Friday was an awesome day in terms of food. I was off work for a dental appointment so I got to take my time with breakfast 🙂

Oat bran with PB and banana.

Then before I left for my appointment, I had a good lunch of leftover vegan meatloaf in a pita pocket with cauliflower and a tangerine (yay, vitamin c)!

After my appointment, I was able to get in a really good workout and then came home to snack on some “homemade” peanut butter crackers.

003 

And a vitamin water, which tasted okay but I didn’t care for the ingredients (like Sucralose and a few others I couldn’t pronounce, never good).

004

Luckily, I also enjoyed a nice cup of tea as well!

Friday night, I went out with Courtney for dinner and a movie!

We ate at Shiraz Mediterranean Grill, which no matter how hard I try, I can’t resist the falafel!

002

I ordered mine without the tzatziki sauce (contains yogurt) and they graciously offered hummus instead 🙂

I also had some sweet potato fries but managed not to photograph them, so sad 😦

After dinner, we went to see the movie “Leap Year” which was cute but sort of silly. My favorite parts were definitely the ones taking place in Ireland 😉 I thought Matthew Goode was a hottie in this movie!

I also had some Twizzler nibs during the film!

Friday was definitely the highlight of my weekend. You’ll see why soon enough 😉

“Speeeeeak!”

Today was a great day!

I took some snacks on the road for our trip to Cincinnati to see RENT 🙂

002

I only ate the bar which I was really excited about but ultimately not that impressed with. Glad I tried one though, finally.

We had a hard time finding anywhere to eat for lunch that was open around the theatre, so we had to resort to snacks to hold us over.

017

Cinnamon almonds and mini pretzels. It’ll do.

The show was AMAZING! I had never seen RENT live before (only the movie and Broadway soundtrack) and it was quite the experience.

027

Equally exciting were getting Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp’s autographs after the show!

Awesome!

For dinner, we stopped at this little place called Akash India, which was said to be the best Indian food by Cincinnati magazine.

032

I ordered the vegetable samosas, which were quite yummy and even better with the spicy sauces I put on them too.

033

036

And of course, no Indian meal is complete without Nan.

034

The meal was very good and although I have nothing else to base it on since I’d never eaten Indian food in Cincinnati, I’m sure they were right to call it the best 🙂

On the way home, we had to make a pit stop because Renee’s car needed some coolant!

037

And I got a naughty snack.

YUM 🙂

It’s hopefully back to normal tomorrow. I’d been feeling pretty good most of the day but now that I am back at home and settling down, my throat and ears are aching again.

I’m hoping a good night’s sleep and getting back to my normal routine tomorrow will help. Also hoping to get some exercise in, although we did walk a bit today.

Good night, hope you enjoyed the weekend!
