Blogger Lunch at Hobbit Cafe


Saturday I met up with Kim, Melissa and That Pink Girl for lunch at the Hobbit Cafe in Houston. This was the first time getting to meet Pink Girl, so I was really looking forward to it. We’ve been blogging buddies for a long time now, so it was a real treat to get to meet in “real life”. :) She’s was in town for the Houston Marathon. Perfect excuse to grab lunch, right? She sounds just as sweet as she writes on her blog, and we both discovered we drive the same car, but a different color, instant BFF’s! ;)

The food was fabulous, very Vegetarian friendly {ya’ll knew I was a vegetarian right?… a post on that coming soon}, thanks to Kim for thinking of us veggies when picking the restaurant!

The food tasted great, but of course the company was even better…

You know you’re hanging out with bloggers, when cameras are around ;)

It was such a great time talking about blogging, running and life in general. These are a fantastic group of ladies and I’m so glad to be their friends.

I’m also quite proud of my Pink friend who ran the Houston Marathon this weekend!!

A, you did it! You’re so inspiring!! Proud of ya girl!

I think we all came to the conclusion that a girls date definitely needs to be a reoccurring event. ;)

Have you ever had a “blogger” meet-up? How was it meeting someone new for the first time?

I eat this…


As promised with pictures, a post about what I eat daily… this is a typical day of what I eat. Pretty much the only thing that stays the same is breakfast… that’s because I get hooked on the same thing for a while {a LONG while} and I like it that way. :)

Here we go…

  • Fiber One Cereal
  • Yogurt {this was light ‘n fit Strawberry. My favorites are: Oikos Greek Yogurt, Light ‘n Fit, and FiberOne Yogurts}
  • Blueberries
  • Green Tea :)

  • Amy’s Vegetable Barley Soup {SO GOOD!}
  • Grilled Spinach-Cheese, used Smart Balance Butter on the skillet to grill.

  • Black Beans
  • Steamed Vegetable Medley – Broccoli, Carrots, Red & Yellow Peppers

  • Banana. Sometimes I’ll snack on peanuts, cashews, apples, grapes, etc.

  • Skinny Cow French Vanilla Truffle Bar {and on occasion a special treat!}

Well there you go peeps, that’s pretty much a typical eating day in my life. :)

What’s your favorite meal of the day and why? Mine is breakfast!

No Dining Out Month *update*


The beginning of January I posted how Hubs and I decided for the whole month of January we wouldn’t go out to eat, with a few {mostly already planned} exceptions.

Well.. we’ve been making it happen! :) The first week it was a little hard, this was often heard in our house…

So wanna go out to eat?“… “no, we’re eating at home“… “aww man

But we’ve managed to get through the month and have found that we love eating at home.

Hubs has been cooking almost all of his meals, not because I won’t cook them, but because he really likes to cook. He gets in the kitchen and creates fun new meals for himself. More of that to come later.

I’ve tried several foods that I’ve never cooked for myself before… Acorn Squash and Polenta, just to name a couple.

The thing I like about staying home, you really can control what goes into your food as well as your portions. You also can have left overs for the week. I love left overs. :) I made a big bowl of verde salsa {YUM!} and we had that one week. I’d put the verde salsa on wraps, it was so super good!

Tomorrow I’m going to do a post of what I eat during a day. I figured I could easily write everything out in text {boring}, or I could take pictures of everything to give you a visual {exciting!}. :) So be sure to check that out tomorrow!

Have you been eating in more this month? Have you tried new foods lately?
