I hope you all had a great weekend….and what about those Saints??!! I watched the game with my mom and dad and there was definitely some yelling and cheering coming from our living room. Also, saw Dear John yesterday and LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!!!!!!! I’m sort of partial because a) I’m a total hopeless romantic and b) it was filmed at my school!!!! I loved being able to recognize Maybank Hall and some of my favorite restaurants (Bowen Island Seafood and Coast!).
Never got around to that run but it’s okay. Time seemed to fly and I spent every moment I had with my family and friends, which was more important than exercise, obviously. Today has been pretty emotional because it was the last time I’ll be in Florida for……? Since my parents are moving I have no idea when I’ll be back next and it was really weird saying goodbye to my old room and house and packing up everything to be shipped to Georgia, a place where I’m not even moving to.
But anyways, before I get all sappy on everyone here’s a recap of my food!
Yesterday morning I had Kashi and yogurt with an orange—
I went to church with my parents and we went out to eat at Square One Burgers, this “create your own burger” restaurant in South Tampa. Even though I’m not a big meat eater, I love this place because they have the BEST house-made veggie burgers! I ordered mine on greens instead of a bun with sweet and spicy mustard, goat cheese and black bean salsa:
With a side of sweet potato fries!!!!! Mmmmmm 🙂
I stopped by a friend’s house for awhile before going to see Dear John with Jessica and then it was football time! Watching football with my dad is pretty much the best thing ever and I’m so thankful we got to spend that time together. And my mom made one of my favorite dinners to boot!
Y’all are going to hate me but I took down the recipe for this beans and kale dish because its going in my book. Sorry!!! We also had buffalo shrimp with homemade blue cheese dressing and I had a few leftover plantains that I brought home with me from the other night.
Of course no trip to Tampa is complete without frozen yogurt! This is blondie froyo with heath bar crumbles:
And then I put on my sweatpants from freshman year and wallowed in delicious food glory.
This morning I made oatmeal that would have to last me through the first leg of my journey back West:
I cooked the oatmeal in water with a banana and then added almond butter, greek yogurt and maple blueberry drizzle. Once at the airport, I got a tall soy awake tea latte (obviously) and bid Florida goodbye forever while my plane headed west for Texas. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a wee teary eyed as we took off….but nothing a tea latte, good music and a great book can’t fix. Well actually all I did on my first flight was work on my taxes and write this blog post, but still. I snacked on a z-bar:
And once in Dallas grabbed a Mediterranean wrap from Au Bon Pain + an unpictured apple:
Currently stuck in Dallas because my flight keeps getting delayed because of San Francisco weather. I guess I won’t be picking up my little furry friend tonight (the pet hotel closes at 6:15). Hopefully I’ll get back relatively early….
See you later!
