Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I decided to link up this week with Healthy Diva Eats and share a MIMM.
If you are not familiar with this wonderful way to start the week here is what Katie said when starting MIMM
“A fun way to start the week and to perhaps share your marvelous weekend, a marvelous recipe, marvelous news, a marvelous mantra, marvelous food you ate, or marvelous shopping trip you had! The possibilities are endless! What my goal was when I thought of this idea, just to have a positive, fun, and beautiful way to start the week!”
I decided this week would be a great week to link up as after what seemed like a true run on week Brent & I had a wonderful weekend!
Marvelous is… coming back from a great course and hitting the gym Tuesday through Friday. I was really happy with my ability to get back in the gym and not let my fatigue from travel get me off track. I enjoyed this weeks GPP workouts && my core continues to remind me everyday (and previous days with each breath) that I hit the gym and rocked my workouts!
A week of successful GPP workouts! & pul up practice AKA very sore lats!
Marvelous is… making He & She Mac n Cheese &&& HE liking the SHE version better! Brent has been on a Mac n Cheese kick lately so Thursday night we made “traditional” mac n cheese ((aka $0.50 box of Kraft)) with cut up chicken sausages on top **think Sheldon on Big Bang Theory**… I haven’t had a box of mac n cheese in forever so it was a good tribute to college days. Friday I made Forks Over Knives Mac N Cheese. I was excited to try it out, and since I am not a Vegan (nor is my carnivore boyfriend) I was a little nervous about the taste/texture of the dish.
SHE Mac & Cheese for the WIN!!! ((recipe coming soon!)) the Mac N cheese is vegan the sausage is an added option for you meat eating friends!
HE Mac & Cheese with chicken sausage
Well Brent answered the question of liking it before I even took a bite as 1/4 the pan was gone almost instantly! WIN!!! ((I’ll be posting the recipe this week!))
Marvelous is… being back in blogger land!! I have some awesome recipes to share with you guys this week AND received an awesome care package of workout supplements & energy drinks to share with you guys too!!! soo much coming up!!!
Marvelous is... spending Saturday leisurely enjoying each others company and the beautiful fall day! We had a nice relaxing day eating Potbelly’s, drinking coffee, enjoying each others company & watching football! It was a total WIN for me!
Marvelous is… doing a favor for a patient over the weekend and seeing complete gratification! I love my job and that I am able to provide great care to great people. It is an added bonus when I can help someone outside of their “clinic time” even if that means taking a little bit of time out of my day to do so. It’s the little things in life that make the world all that better!
Marvelous is… ending Saturday with a date night at a local restaurant Alchemy. We ate ALL THE FOOD and had some great drinks. Brent had a new-to-him beer & a great Malbec while I had the Alchemy Punch & a Moscow Mule to drink. We both had a lobster bisque ((soo good, and the presentation made it that much better!)) to start followed by a HUGE amount of food provided by the owner. We were served their skinny fries which are served with 2 smoked eggs that you break and dip the fries in ((HEAVEN!!)), a giant elk meatball in red sauce, a kale basil caesar salad (which I am going to beg for the recipe!!!), and a half order of the lobster formaggio which was amazing but we were soo full that we both took 3-4 bites and took the rest home!
Alchemy Date Night!
Alchemy Punch, Lobster Bisque (mid pour over!!), Lobster Formaggio & my moscow mule… only a portion of all the amazing food we were supplied!!!
Marvelous is… getting everything done by 6:30 on Sunday!! this included sleeping until 9, breakfast, grocery shopping, meal prep for the week, deodorant making (more to come on this soon), cleaning house & a trip to the mall. A productive and wonderful end to our Sunday with leftovers in the fridge to cap it off!!
Sunday Selfie was needed after my very productive morning!
I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week and had as marvelous of a weekend as we did over here!!
