Hi Friends! I took a little break last week from blogging, due to some heavy/ crazy days at work! Honestly the last thing I wanted to do was sit in front of a computer when I got home.
Instead I got out and PLAYED!!! I got a chance to get out and run 8 miles today and bike, got in 2 yoga sessions last week and started Phase 2 of NROL for Women!
This past weekend Hubby and I spent Saturday together doing a bit of treasure hunting aka thrifting and picked up a few things that were such a great deal! I am in love with old jars, boxes and the rust color orange pillow! I love this book shelf too and it was only $40 and is in great shape, wish you could all see the texturizing on it.
We also made it to Sprouts a health market and I picked up some of my favorite plant based protein products!
…and of course I am set for life thanks to Chobani with some awesome new yogurt flavors! I am loving the banana one in smoothies and I canâ€™t get enough of the pear flavor!
For Valentines day the Hubs was so creative and instead of getting me flowers that just die (he knows I get sad when they die), he made me a flower arrangement that will last forever!! I love LOVE love it! He also got me the Lululemon tank I have been wanting for years!!!
Now we typically donâ€™t really celebrate Valentines day, because we think itâ€™s such a funny holiday. We know how much each of us loveâ€™s one another and we donâ€™t need a holiday to show that! But we thought what the heck letâ€™s get dressed up and go to a restaurant that we have been dying to go to The Farm Artesian Restaurant in Redlands. All their food comes from local Farms and is a â€œmodern cuisineâ€ pretty fancy schmancy!
I almost bought the dress on the left, but settled with one that I already have and love. I havenâ€™t worn it since my bridal shower 6 years ago!
My hot date for the evening
Before we headed over to dinner we hit up a local wine bar and picked up one our favorite reds. Pretty ironic that this wine is called Wine of Love!
I loved that they had vegan options on the menu! My heart smiled.
…as well as the freshest bread!
I started out with the most delicious vegan carrot and ginger soup over jasmine rice and Hubby got the cheese platter.
For my main course I went with the Vegan Garbanzo Bean cake with Swiss chard and sweet potato’s. Loved ever bite!
I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about the Farm, but overall we were very pleased! The company honestly was the best part! (OK and maybe the wine )
The rest of the week was filled with all kinds of shenanigans, like home made pizza parties and
Big sexy salads!
…and I may or may have not lived in my leggings, cardigans and Toms all week Donâ€™t judge me!
OK back to normal posting 3 times a weekâ€¦ I have missed you all!
What did you do for Valentines Day this year??
