Good morning love doves, and Happy Valentine’s Day! How was your weekend?
Mine was fun and jam-packed, hence the name of this post, which is quite the mouthful:)
I’m so glad you chickadees loved the Indulgence Friday recipe! If you missed it, have a look and make it now, mmk?
So in the spirit of my love for all things quick-and-dirty (get your minds out of the gutter people), I am going to TRY to ramble a tad less than usual. But only a little.
Okay, number one!
Quick, delicious. I don’t have a spiralizer because I am a cheapo so I used my vegetable peeler and ate the middle part that wouldn’t noodlify:).
That part I just ate like a pretzel rod…or a stick..or a microphone. I don’t know, what kinds of foods are in stick-form? (out of the gutter, people!)
Topped with Amy’s Low Sodium Marinara, nooch, and raisins obv.
Then for dessert, I whipped up a double batch of my Raw Chocolate Mousse, and it was gone by the end of the night, I think that says everything mmk.
The night was spent eating lots of that and watching Greek on Hulu. Ob. sessed.
Con banana slices, bloobs, rasps, and cacao nibs.
I woke up, made a delicious Brendan Brazier Thrive energy pudding, and then went to the gym to kick some surrious Dreadmill bootay with an easy seven-miler, it was glorious.
I am thanking lord baby Jesus right now that my hammie is no longer a-killin me. I CAN RUN AGAIN🙂
Then I came home, showered, did my makeup, did my hair, got changed, and packed my breakfast all in half an hour. I think it is safe to say I am a PRO.
That is an actual license plate that I found when I was at my lake house, I was so ecstatic jumpy umpy that I had to take a picture:)
And yes, I ate my cookie dough breakfast in church. Priorities, people.
Beet It juice (beets, carrots, swiss chard, apple, and ginger) alongside the Apple Curry Salad in a Collard Wrap (apple, carrots, celery, avocado, tomato, cucumber, sunflower seeds, raisins in an orange curry sauce) and a Carrot, Beet, Raisin salad.
This was to. die. Give me anything with sunflower seeds and raisins and I will love you forever.
Devoured and sufficiently made a giant mess out of. I am a messy eater🙂
Almond Ginger Nori Roll (almonds, ginger, marinated veggies in Tamari (wheat-free soy sauce), garlic, miso, spinach, avocado, sprouts).
Beautiful, delicious. I absolutely hated it;)
I told you I’m a messy eater!
If you don’t believe me my sister took a picture, don’t look at my face I look icky that is not my good side.
I am sorry you had to see that. But let’s be honest you guys love pictures of me stuffing my face🙂
Then came DESSERT!
Raspberry Ganache Cake and Strawberry Macaroons.
Words cannot even express. Why have I not had raw macaroons sooner?! These were so good, I usually am not a big fan of the co-co-nut, but these turned me from a coco hater to a coco LOVA.
So freaking good, it was like a strawberry milkshake on crack but better because it is solid.
And this Raspberry Ganache Cake…can I just say my life has been changed forever. This was the most delicious, rich, and perfectly chocolatey cake I have ever had.
Perfectly sweet, and perfectly bitter.
Fudgy, thick, and scrumdiddlyumptious. I swear she put crack in this cake, the lady next to me couldn’t finish hers so I finished it for her:)
I am recreating this cake for next weekend’s Indulgence Friday, so get excited:)
Okay the bathroom at the brunchy brunch was creepy, ghetto, and in a basement. Hence, CGB.
IT WAS SO COOL.
Have you ever seen the Blair Witch Project? You should. The corner the guy stands in at the end…yeah, this basement looked exactly like the house. I swear to bejeezus it was filmed here.
Normally this would freak the sugar out of people, but instead I was basically hopping up and down as Sacha was warning me about the creep factor.
Little did she know, I am a crazyins and this was like Christmas Morning. I am a sucker for crazy stuff.
Then, I came home and whooped some schoolwork, then headed off to a new youth group with my sister, and it was so. much. fun. These people are as crazykins as I am, so you can imagine how skipdiddlydoo happy I was.
One kid hugs everyone, gave me candy, and counted the number of colors on my shirt with me.
By the way, yesterday’s outfit was ADORABLE, but I was too busy eating at the lunch to get a picture of myself besides the one of me stuffing my face, so here is a mirror shot:
Everything is from Forever21, I am obsessed. It is all cheap and cute, aka the perfect place for a cheapo like me🙂
Then I came home and ate food bigger than my house, and watched the Grammys. Did anyone else giggle when they saw Lady Gaga’s outfit? I did:)
Go wish Janae a Happy Late Birthday!! She got a crazy hot treadmill, one day I will find a man that will buy me awesome toys like that.
If you happen to find one, feel free to forward him over to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please and thanks:)
That’s all for today lovies! Have a rockin’ Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single and mingling (like me) or spending time with your significant other🙂
I leave you with this, my friends:
How are celebrating Valentine’s Day? Or if you hate Valentine’s Day, tell me why you absolutely hate it and we will curse all men together:)
LUNCH, and I love Valentine’s Day, it reminds me of elementary school when we would make “mailboxes” out of shoe boxes and decorate them and get tons of valentines and candy:)
Did you watch the Grammys? Thoughts?
Yes, I am never going to see Never Say Never. Justin Bieber used to be adorable when he was still YouTube’ing and undiscovered, but now it is just toomuch. SLash I love Lady Antebellum:)
Do you eat in church too?
Yes, I cannot go more than 2 hours without food, I would start gnawing on the Bible.
