Buongiorno bellas! WOW!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful response to Snacktime! You all are the sweetest human beings evah!
Sorry I have been MIA this weekend! Muffin and I decided to take a trip to Pittsburgh for the weekend. Crazy, right? We just had to visit our journalista friends in their city. Though I don’t have pictures for every meal, I did capture some goodies for you!
First off, I treated myself to Chipotle on Thursday night because I had zilch produce. This made me wildly happy:
Muffin and I ordered a bag of chips to share. I think she only got about five of them. I own tortilla chips.
Friday morning, before the road trip began, I had this luscious breakfast:
Because I think it’s pretty, here’s another look:
The drive to Pittsburgh was fast and effortless. Muffin and I laughed, rapped and snacked on chips and Coke Zero’s the whole time. Oh the life.
When we weren’t roaming the city and checking out the night life, we were eating. One of the restaurants we visited The Oyster Bar. Challenging. I ended up eating non-photogenic fries with a salad. Sometimes you just have to make do. And I really do love both fries and salad, so why not! My counterpart ordered a plate-sized piece of fish. She apologized to me when she ordered this beast:
She wasn’t feeling it and ended up eating only a few bites. That’s my girl!
On Saturday we partook in a common American tradition that I normally don’t tolerate well. But circumstance led me to my afternoon at…:
We scored, though, as it was free hat day! I’ll be donning my yellow Pirates hat for the next week. I didn’t pay much attention to the game (I think the Pirates lost?) because I had my girl to distract me:
Eats for the rest of Saturday went something like pasta, spinach and bread, and Sunday’s breakfast was toast, strawberries and banana. Vegan dining in non-vegan restaurants can be difficult, but at least I have a passionate love for all things carby:
One of our friends ordered sweet potato fries Sunday afternoon. I tried one and I must say, cheetahs are better. The fries were too pretty not to photograph, though:
To break up our long drive home Sunday evening, Muffin and I stopped at a Panera in the most bizarre small Ohio town. This was the first time I’ve had Panera since May! Too long:
I always order black bean soup, Greek salad no feta and the whole grain baguette. F. Now that I think about it, the bread probably has honey in it. Anyway, this is the most satisfying meal.
I walked into my room at 9:30 pm and realized that because I have so much work to do, I will be chained to this for hours on end this week:
That’s my happy little space where I do my homework, study, eat, read blogs, Gchat on the regular. Surrounded by a painting by MamaJ, pictures of my family and friends and my unpictured vision board to the right, my blog station decor helps me stay positive amidst the stress. I was actually super stressed when I started writing this post, but now I’m feeling great! We’ll see how long that lasts. I have insane deadlines this week.
Puddings, I’m sorry for being a sporadic blogger as of late! It’s just crazy over here and I clearly never know where a day is going to take me. Pittsburgh this weekend, Cincinnati next weekend…who knows where I’ll be after that!
Now that it’s 1:30 am I’m considering doing more reading and then hitting the hay. I can’t wait to do two things tomorrow: work out and buy groceries! I don’t even have any of these, and I always have them on-hand:
Things I can wait to do: write an industry trend report (complete with citations), read three chapters for Film 201 (out of the worst text I’ve ever purchased) and wash two weeks’ worth of underwear, socks and workout wear. Mmm.
I’m putting an end to my procrastination right…now! I hope everyone had phenomenal weekends!!! GO PIRATES! Kidding.
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: What are your favorite car snacks?
When I’m not trying to be kale-eating Kailey, I adore any kind of chip or cracker. And I need a Coke Zero. Yes, need. When I’m trying to be considerate of my sodium intake, I love apples, grapes, Clif bars and Zbars for the road. Perhaps even a snap pea or twenty.
PS: I just read over this post and realized I jump all over the place. I hope you enjoy reading despite this 🙂
