Hello bloggies! What a day I have had. Sorry it took so long to blog, but Maggie and I headed to Knoxville for the day!
My day started off amazing with my favorite breakfast spot:
If this doesn’t entice you, then little will…
The grub wasn’t half bad, either. ;-)
Had to jump start with the coffee buzz. Moved onto something a wee bit more substantial.
Bran Muffin, Sliced Nana, and my precious oatmeal! Topped with a truckload of pecans.
Perfect start for the day.
I got ready, packed all my healthy snacks…and headed to meet Maggie. We were Knoxville bound for Alice In Wonderland, IMAX style!
Chowed down on an apple and some grapes. Also busted out my new Nalgene with my sticker from Florida!
We made it to the theater with little time to spare!
Going to the movies meant two things today:
A) 3D glasses
B) sneaking in lots of yummy movie treats.
The LAST (sadness) of my dried Kiwi, a new Raw bar (honestly….wasn’t a fan), and two cuties!
Movie was great. It was so amazing getting that IMAX experience. I think they could have shown two hours worth of grass growing in 3D and I would have been happy. The screen was giganourmous. Oh yes, it’s a word.
We met our friend Jessica in Knoxville, and her boyfriend and amazingly cute son that Maggie and I instantly adopted. We became Aunt and Uncle for the day. The fun kind of Aunt and Uncle that loads the kid up on sugar, lets them do as they please, then drops them off with the parents as a crazed wild lunatic. Parenting. Isn’t it fun?!
We went to another Hibachi place for dinner (I am two for two on those this weekend!)
Started with a salad with ginger dressing, and the classic soup!
Maggie and I both got the “Hibachi Vegetables” and boy…they didn’t skimp up on the veggies!
Here was my portion, that was large enough to feed the entire TABLE.
Check out all the yummy veggies!
Needless to say I have enough leftovers for several fun meals in the next few days. ;-)
Also, there was an EARTH FARE in this shopping complex. You know we had to stop.
A simple grain that has taken the blog world caught my eyes…and was on sale. I decided it was time to give it a go.
Ch, Ch, Ch, Chia!
What do you bloggers do with Chia? I know oatmeal, of which I will be trying first thing in the a.m., but what are some other good Chia inspired recipes?!?
Maggie and I continued assuming our role of fun Aunt/Uncle…
And got my favorite dessert ever. Vegan. Carrot. Cake. Joyness.
Drool-WORTHY!!!!!!!!!!! Moist and delicious. How they make it Vegan I will never know, as it always just tastes like the most glorious cake you could ever imagine.
While I need groceries badly, I just picked up some fun items…the bulk of my shopping will be done at MY Earth Feezy tomorrow!
I haven’t saved a zebra yet!!! I swear these Endangered Species chocolates are more addicting than Beanie Babies, and way more edible. ;-) Also got two of my most favorite bars….Raw Choco-Coconut. Hands down the best bars EVER! And the Chia.
Ok guys, what do I need to be doing with these?!?! I know there are tons of ideas out there. Lets hear em!
Also check back tomorrow when I will announce the winner of the OIKOS Greek Yogurt prize pack!
