Friday Review

Buuuussssyyy day! I've been running around like crazy, but accomplishing a lot. Here's a recap of Friday...

My day started with a bowl of bulgar with dates. Nothing exciting to report about this meal, but bulgar is still by far my favorite breakfast! Love it!


Around noon, I had breakfast for lunch: an open-face egg sandwich with swiss cheese. (I later added Tabasco sauce.) I used one of my uncle's fresh eggs to make my sandwich. I didn't notice much of a difference in taste, but the color was a much more vibrant yellow. Interesting, right?


I also ate 1/2 of a grapefruit for lunch. I thought I was a pink grapefruit kind of girl, but I like the regular ones just as much.


All together... egg and cheese sandwich and 1/2 grapefruit.


My afternoon snack was a small apple (sorry no photo) and 5 or 6 carob spirulina chunks.


And for the big news of the day... Mal and I picked out our wedding bands this evening! We attended a special wedding band event for engaged couples at Long's Jeweler's, where my engagement ring was purchased. We had such a blast picking out our bands! I chose a sparkley shared-prong band, and Mal chose a brushed band with polished edges. The funny thing-- Mal's band cost more than mine! He is so high maintenance! :)

In addition to the many gorgeous wedding bands, the event also had vendors, prizes, raffles, and a cake tasting! I wasn't hungry, but I'm not one to turn down cake... ever. I chose a piece of carrot cake with the most amazing frosting ever-- it was wonderfully rich and thick. I almost ate the whole piece, but quit with about 1/3 left.


To celebrate our newly purchased rings, Mal and I decided to celebrate with dinner and a drink. Mal was in the mood for chicken fingers, so we ended up at Chilli's... not my first choice restaurant, but I do love bar food! Mal and I ordered an appetizer sampler to share. Here's a shot of my plate... buffalo chicken tenders, Mexican egg rolls, and a couple carrot sticks and celery.


I also had a glass of wine with dinner. I can't believe I even ordered (and drank) this after my booze-filled Thursday night.


At the wedding band event, the cake vendor gave Mal and I each 2 cookies. The cookies are so cute-- shortbread decorated with pink and white frosting, shaped as little wedding cakes.


Even after all of that junk food for dinner, I ate the first two layers from one of the cake cookies. It was delicious, but I need to get myself back on track. I hardly ate any fresh produce today, and I've had trouble making nutritious decisions lately. I feel like I need a kick in the butt! 

I'm exhausted from the day, so I am climbing into bed very soon. Bright and early tomorrow morning, Mal and I have our Pre-Cana Marriage Preparation course, which runs the entire day (9-5). We are probably the worst Catholics ever, but I am actually looking forward to it. As soon as we finish Pre-Cana, I am meeting some college girlfriends for a "Ladies Night," so I probably won't squeeze in a post until Sunday morning. I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday! Good night! :)

Does it feel great to go back to a good old favorite breakfast after a while? It tastes so much better!

Don't worry, I'm having a sugar-filled few days as well, maybe it's something in the air!

You should send a picture of your ring when it's possible... if that's not too personal for you. I love rings!

OMG!!! That is about the exact ring I have always wanted! (Is it silly I know the type of ring I like, but I'm not even in a near-marriage relationship?)
