Week in Review

WOAHHHHHHH is anyone still out there? I vowed to keep this thing up and I did REALLY good for a while and lately…well, in all honesty, life has hit me–HARD. This last week has brought a little sunshine so I thought I would share via Clean Eats, Fast Feets in a Week in Review!

So……A week ago I was in New Orleans with my sister. Bucket list item for me AND our first “sisters” trip with no kids!

About half way to the airport I realized I forgot to pack a book 😦  I used to read books in a weekend but then I became a working mom and that went out the window!  I can always get through a book when I travel–that is when I remember to bring one and what really sucks is I have a bookcase full of books I want to read at home :\  Anyhoo…I looked up one of the first bloggers I started to follow years ago for her book list because she always seemed to have some good ones on there…I found this, which turned out to be fantastic!  Thank you to Julie over at Peanut Butter Fingers for this great pick!

clouds

Take off is my favorite LOL–anyone else fascinated with clouds?  I always take a few pics of them.  Just for me 😀

I flew Delta on the way out and I’m definitely giving them a thumbs up!  Well really I just fly them for the cookies ha!

Delta

But why does the coffee ALWAYS taste like pond water??????  I usually don’t drink it but they had the AC set at like -14 no lie!  I flew American on the way home–sorry guys but thumbs down on that one and I believe it’s been a while since I’ve flown on one of their flights.  #deltaalltheway

I ate my packed meals but ventured over to the food court in search of something green LOL and I have to say, I was impressed with the much larger variety of “healthier” stuff–this power salad was amazing!  Coupled with my trusty MaxMuscle protein I had a great airport meal–by the way this is my new favorite flavor and yes I brought the whole bag with me 🙂

Raining when we arrived but our next four days were absolutely perfect!  There was a food festival going on——–HELLO that’s why I came!  Absolutely amazing.  I don’t drink much but…while in NOLA…

shots

I think I had a headache more than half the time I was there.  No idea *shrugs*

Bourbon Street was something to see during the day but even more so at night…

Oh the things you see………………………

We hit all the hot spots, ate all the food, drank, danced (lots shared on my Facebook and Instagram) and a blast.  I was sad when it came to an end ;-(

I arrived home safely with no issues and of course vacation is always fun but there’s no place like home!

Tell me — what travel destination is on your bucket list?

Week In Review

article

So let’s do this backwards.  At the end of the week I received word that the article I wrote for a local magazine, Women’s View, had been published!!!!!!  Just a small article mostly about the importance of nutrition but nonetheless, it’s out there and I’ve already had people stop me and mention it!  Huge thank you to Bill Porter at MaxMuscle for making this possible!  Also thank you to Rico Allende Photography and Sean Nelson Photo!  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about nutrition or training–I’d love to help!

I started this past week off hopefully planning a trip.  My son’s school is planning a trip to Italy and Greece in the summer of 2018 and parents are invited.  SHOCKINGLY, my son said he wouldn’t want to go without me!  However, we’ve been discussing some other options and may hold off until the summer 2019 school trip which is England, France and Spain and I’d definitely do that too.  I want him to have experiences and memories so I’m willing to sacrifice and spend on those things rather than material things.  We did book our trip to Vermont in December which he is very excited about and all I can think is brrrrrrrrr I’m probably going to die LOL.  Possibly a road trip to Tennessee for Thanksgiving too!

We spent our Saturday downtown at the Veteran’s Day Parade which Kolby marched in.  So proud of those kids–they do a great job.  Love the community support and participation too.

We also made a trip to Cold Stone.  Kolby’s birthday is Tuesday and it’s a yearly tradition.  Only because we don’t have a Ben & Jerry’s close by.  I’ve always been super impressed but this time…meh.  My cup wasn’t even full–I know oink oink 😀 and the bits of candy–like two–okay maybe three…It was still good and he was happy which makes me happy.

Not a lot to report but still a good week–how was your week?  Be sure to check out Ave–I mean Meghan–over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets–I really do love me some Ave though!
