Raleigh Road Trip + WIAW # 157

Holy cow!  Is it seriously Wednesday?  Really!?  Last year might have been the slowest moving year of my life but this year has obviously taken a Jessie Spano sized dosage of no-doze and is SO EXCITED!

While I desperately want things to slow down a bit [I'm in no rush to thrust myself into another military deployment. YUCK!] I wouldn't mind if the rest of this month to sped on by.  Two of my favorite people are getting hitched next month and I cannot wait to watch them tie the knot!  I'm also excited about Valentine's Day for once in my life because I have a smooshy little cherub of a baby to celebrate it with!  She's obviously MY Valentine.  Paul will have to find his own.  Unless he wants to bribe me... in which case I challenge him to bah-ring it.  Last year he was able to win me over with coffee and a bagel.  I seriously need to step up my standards a bit.

Though I still expect that bagel.

What I Ate Wednesday #157
What I ate... last Friday!

[breakfast] blueberry yogurt and a banana [lunch] lean cuisine's butternut squash with veggies (holy cow these are good! I don't eat frozen meals often but when I do, it's this pasta veggie combo or veggie korma) [snack] the chickpea didn't finish her mini avocado so I mashed the rest into guacamole for myself! Ole! [snack] two insanely addictive carrot cake muffins [recipe] ...or maybe it was three? I lost count! [dinner] baked spaghetti -- it's somewhere under that obscene lake of cheese!

Totally different day... but I also managed to face plant into some sushi recently on a mini road trip to Raleigh with the fam.  Mia had her usual avocado while Paul and I split fried pickles [swoon!] and a platter of sushi.  I keep thinking the day will come that I'm thoroughly exhausted of sushi but surprisingly it's downright impossible!  I can live with that!


The roll with the crazy traffic light-themed toppings is called the Tropical Storm.  It's essentially cucumber, avocado, and imitation crab topped with salmon, yellowtail and tuna and with fancy flavored masago.  I'll branch out and try a different roll eventually but until then, I keep ordering this one on repeat whenever I'm in town!

Raleigh road trips are our favorite! 


Like Jessie, Paul was also SO EXCITED!

    I love love LOVE sushi! I hardly ever eat it though because the Hubs doesn't like it. Actually, he has never had it! But my birthday is in February and I told him all I want for dinner is to go to a sushi place. :)

  12. You guys are such a ridiculously good-looking couple (without that sounding creepy hahah). Hope your road trip was good. I'm not really a v-day lover, but I would totally make my girl my valentine too. Perhaps maybe I would like it a little more if I received bagels also haha

  15. I seriously need to get back on board with WIAWs... Coincidentally, my absence from the festivities started when a certain little human that kinda looks like me entered the world...
