So, I had to eat early and on my own tonight because I’m meeting Ryan at 6:15 for an event he has to go to for work. The “event” is a fashion show at Saks so it should be fun. The invitation said “cocktails and hors d’oeuvres”, which meant that Jenna better eat dinner beforehand. Ryan could be totally fine making a dinner out of hors d’oeuvres, but me—not so much. Ryan (and everybody else in the world) knows how cranky I get when I’m hungry or there’s no food I can eat. He’s seen the wrath first-hand and, therefore, now always encourages me to bring snacks or eat before. He could be fine not eating until 10:00 at night (which he usually does because he works late during the week) but me—no way on earth. I’m a grandma eater—the earlier the better! Plus, hors d’oeuvres at parties are always something like cheese and crackers and mini quiches. We could have gone out to eat after, I suppose, but I told my parents I would come over to their house at 8:00 to help my brother write a paper for school (the english major in me).
So Pizza it was!! I ate the other half of my pizza from last night, which I’m confused about since the dough I bought yesterday was a “large”–supposed to make a 16″ pie. I divided the dough exactly in two to make two 8″ pies. So, today, since I ate half of my pizza last night, I should have eaten a 4″ pie. Except it was much larger than 4″….more like a 6″….oh, I don’t know! Maybe I just made it thinner or something. It tasted really good. I put some more black beans on top and dipped it in the remaining guacamole from last night. I always tell myself I won’t eat all the crust and I always do. Oh, carbs, how I love thee.
This afternoon was gorgeous. It was so nice to just lay by the pool and relax for once. I snacked on some fresh fruit mid-afternoon (the other half of my mango from this morning and a kiwi) and also had a spoonful of almond butter 😉 Sometimes it’s just exactly what you need. You know? I didn’t go to the gym today and had some stuff to pick up at the drugstore, so I walked. It was about a 30 minute walk there and back and it was so nice because I think I got more sun on my shoulders and I got to show off the cute new sundress I got! haha.
I’m all dressed up and heading out to meet the boy. I plan on having a glass of wine or just sparkling water, depending on how I feel. Have a good evening, everyone!
