Put Your Party Pants On! [What I Ate Wednesday #45]

So this week has been CAH-razy! I'm keeping my WIAW short and sweet for two reasons.

1. I'm 100% certain that your eats are way more interesting than mine!
2. I may or may not be running on a lone hour of sleep. zZzzzZZZzzzZZZzzz

So before this WIAW ends up as a pajama party where I pass out early and everyone draws on me with sharpies... let's get on to the food, glorious food! <3

Chugged coffee and scarfed a bowl of shredded oats cereal (in coconut milk) before heading out the door.  Snacked on a fruit leather while driving.  Had tea + lunch with my friend for her birthday -- soooo much fun!  We drank delish pina colada tea and had the best seafood bisque and veggie sandwich combo evah!  Loved it!  Snacked on some hummus and veggies on the car ride back... along with a baller peppermint mocha from Starbucks... my newest obsession =)  I saved the greek platter I was snacking on for tomorrow and instead scarfed some comfort food for dinner: black bean and refried bean nachos with jalapenos, green onion, a shredded string cheese and a dollop of daisy.  Overall, a super yummy day!  Ooh! and we saw a rainbow and a goooorgeous sunset =)


Yikes. What happened to short and sweet?  Good one Jenn.  Now everyone needs a nap! <3

  16. Is it bad that I'm still laughing at the thought of people writing on your with a sharpie pen?  I'm a good friend.  I wouldn't let them do that.  Honest.

  26. Oh my gosh! I LOVE this..... I think I might have to participate... what an incredible idea!! I stumbled upon your blog through another one, and I just love it I should be working but I cant stop browsing your blog.. and a few others as well =] I am a personal trainer and I myself have a health & fitness blog but its more geared towards exercise  videos and stuff, but I might have to jump on your WIAW bandwagon! love it. Great stuff!!!

  37. Peppermint mocha?  That just sounds too delish!!  Oh no my loyalty's being tested now. Can I really walk past my usual coffee shop and nip into Starbucks? (which I normally avoid like the plague). To try one of these babies, I think it's a resounding YES!
