Everyone loves a party, right? And apparently Nate and I like to have parties at our house and plan everything about 30 minutes before everyone’s supposed to be there. We just live for the thrill 🙂 Anyway, yesterday was a quasi-stressful day for me at work, so it sounded great to me to have friends over for margaritas and a makeshift Mexican fiesta!
First we stopped off at PetSmart and got Keira her birthday gifts: a pink collar with a new nametag, a pink butterfly toy, and we got Bunker a bumper that was on sale. Here’s the baby girl now modeling her new collar:
Thank goodness my sexy husband was waiting for me with a cocktail when I got home!
We weren’t sure how many people would show up…it could have been 6 and it could have been 30! Over the course of the night we ended up having around 12-14 or so show up, which was a great number! Daniel was stoked about grilling up some fajita veggies:
I had a tortilla (10″) with some Spanish rice, chicken, steak, homemade beans, guacamole, a tiny bit of sour cream, and a sprinkling of cheese. YUM! I had a couple pieces of chicken after this too, but no photo. After a couple margs it’s probably not a great idea to pick up expensive cameras and attempt to operate them 😉
I got up this morning and was NOT in the mood to workout, so I cleaned up the kitchen a bit and made some chocolate chip cookie bars for my office. I figure I’ll do a great leg workout and some walking later today when I’m feeling better ifyouknowwhatimean. We stopped and had breakfast at McDonald’s:
No picture of my sandwich, but I had a McMuffin, which I know is not great for me, but we were in such a rush this morning that there really wasn’t time to fix breakfast at home. I’m having a salad for lunch and one for dinner, which I’m really excited about! I’ve bee craving veggies in a bad way lately, and if you’ve been reading about my eats you’ll know why: I’m not eating nearly enough of them. This is a really busy time of year for us, and it’s almost impossible to make fresh meals all the time. Not that it’s a good excuse, but I definitely want more veggies in my life STAT!
Do you have any tricks for veggie-packed meals during really busy time? I’d love to be completely overloaded with them!
