Another day in beautiful Augusta, GA!
Woke up this morning, and headed down for a fruit/carb overload…which is such my style it’s not even funny!
Round one…..ding, ding, ding!
With a belly full of fruit and pastry goodness….it was time for a nice walk in the beauuuuutimous weather of Georgia!
I wanted to run SO badly that it was not even funny. I have one more week of no running to go, via the Physical Therapist. Darn you, bum knee! I will say…since I have taken off running, and been doing my strength/isolation exercises for the hip…no knee pain! So maybe it is working it’s magic after all. We saw some amazing scenery!
After a nice walk, it was time for some YMCA sponsored shenanigans at their local Y.
Best part of warm weather?!?!?!
Iced. Coffee. Wonderland.
Oh Venti Iced Coffee with Skim Milk….how I have missed thee.
Fresh Market/Earth Fare=happier.
Where my favorite.coffee.EVER. was found, and bought. This brings back memories from dear Florida!!!
And we still have Earth Fare…Mall Madness…and PF Changs to go! There also may be some ice cream in pajamas involved (see my last post), hey…I will do just about anything for free ice cream. Lucky for them I don’t sleep in the nude….jus’ sayin’.
Happy Saturday bloggers!
PS…I have no Mystery Box Picture to update/tease you with (it will be revealed on Monday!) so here is your clue:
10% can really add up.
Happy Friday! What a day! We are now in Augusta at our hotel, which is supposed to be HAUNTED. Check it.
Lets rewind a bit to lunch where I met the wondermous Ashlei for my first taste of Indian goodness, evah!
I had strict orders from the beautiful Gina to get the Baingan Bartha which is a spicy eggplant dish, with the whole wheat n’aan
So many options!!! Loved eating with Ashlei….so fun being with another blogger!
In no time, the food arrived!!! Complete with the n’aan, and some amazing jasmine rice!
Fannnnnntastic. Seriously even better than I thought it would be! Thanks for suggesting this, Ashlei and Gina!!! You guys rock! Lunch with a blogger is so much fun…we decided to extend it a bit and hit up TJMaxx for some random goodies!
Who knew TJMaxx had random organic goodies?!?! I got some Raw Honey…a bar, and some sports beans! Random yet super fun shopping! Ashlei also brought me some delicious cookies and soy sauce, thanks Ash!!!
It was then time to head for Georgia!!!!
It was time to bid farewell to the mountains, and say hello to GREEN grass and flat land…nice change of pace. Didn’t hurt that it was around 70* outside!
Snacks were involved in this journey. 😉
This is by far my hands down favorite bar of any kind. I could eat it daily and never grow tired of it. Fo realz.
We also split the new Bee Bar I picked up today…the flavor was…interesting. Still not sure how I felt about this bar.
Christie and Kim agreed it was odd. They both thought it was bird food-esque.
Lackluster snack was replaced by the snack to end all snacks. (snack, snack, snack.) hahaha
Cup holder transitioned itself into the perfect Booty Catcher.
Between the snacks and horse laughing, we were there in no time! Please check out why America is extremely overweight.
You call it fusion cuisine, I call it “Stroke Buffet!”
However, this beauty gave me hope (and shopping ideas for tomorrow)…
So close, yet so far away!!!
By the time we got to the hotel, we were famished! Did I mention that this bad boy is supposedly haunted by some Emily chick?!?!?! No, not MY Emily…some ancient ghost Emily. 😉
Did you find her, Kim?!?!
We headed downtown in a search for some dinner!
We all decided this place looked pretty nifty, plus the fact that we were all about to eat our own faces. We decided to stay. 🙂
I decided to break the rules, and create my own Quesadilla with zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, and onions!
this baby was loaded UP with veggies. They knew me all too well. 😉
Gotta love downtown antics…that involve faux tattoo bodies…
What better to end a night with (more fun than tattoo cut outs??!) than ICE CREAM!
I got a small cake batter/cookie dough. Droll. WORTHY, people!
This is one of those things where you just need to get the real deal. Make it small, and keep it delicious.
PS, we MAY or may not be coming back tomorrow in our pj’s.
Sweet dreams, bloggies!
I am currently in my mad state of packing/throwing things into my suitcase…it’s mini vacation time!
Kim, Christie, and I are heading to Augusta Georgia later today for some YMCA sponsored shenanigans for the weekend.
Ooh, here was dinner last night. It was Maggie’s birthday, so we went to the stir fry!
I went with the Racha…LIGHT sauce, and brown rice. (add broccoli.)
They also brought out the crunchy rectangles of death.
I may have had one or thirty.
It was then time for CAKE! Jessica made Maggie a Vegan Carrot Cake that we are all obsessed with via Earth Fare. She actually got the recipe from Whole Foods:
Click here for the recipe.
I could have eaten the entire conglomeration. We wanted to, and did, sing to an ever embarrassed birthday girl:
Here was my little slice -o- heaven.
Yum. There may have been more involved that didn’t make it to picture form. What can I say, I love me some carrot cake. Great times, I tell you!
Fast forward to crack thirty this morning when I woke up for 5:45am spin class! Had a rockin’ group today and definitely had some carrot cake to burn off. We had an awesome sweat sesh thanks to Lady GaGa. 😉
Breakfast was in order afterwards, when I met the Padre at my favorite spot.
It was the obvious choice!
Yummy as usual!
Well, time to pack and panic. I love these little pre-vacation freakout sessions. Why can’t I ever be on time or organized for ANYTHING?!?! I will literally be throwing things into the suitcase as we are pulling out of the driveway. Bad TYLER….BAD!
I am so stoked because I am meeting up with Ashlei later to have my first Indian Food!!!! So excited for lunch and to catch up on her latest Florida trip!
Here is another little preview of the mystery box. Should be getting semi-guessable now. I covered up the majority of the logo with the bow….but what is that word???? Hmmmmm…. 😉
