I have some fun news to share!  My super awesome boyfriend surprised me last week...with my own domain name!  I am now the proud owner of  :D  I'm truly excited and it has sparked a fire under my ass to get crankin' on making this site better.  (If anyone has any suggestions for improvements, let me know.)  Thank you so much babe!  <3

Onto the WIAW noms!  But, first, thank you to everyone who has stopped by my little blog in the past month and read my ramblings - it doesn't go unnoticed and is very much appreciated!  And a big thanks to Jenn for hosting, as always!  I am happy to be participating in such a fun event every week.  :)

Apologies in advance for the stinky pictures - I forgot my camera and was using my terrible cell phone.  (Thanks to Picnik for helping to make these slightly more presentable.  Soo bummed out that they'll be shutting down in April.  Wahh!)

Breakfast: The usual oatmeal ;) This time with banana, walnuts, and ground flax seed

Lunch: Gettin' my veggie on with a salad loaded up with grilled chicken, tomatoes, cukes, and kidney beans

Snack time: Peeled up a blood orange in the morning; noshed on some baby carrots and a low-fat mozzarella cheese stick in the p.m.  (The kid in me will NEVER get sick of string cheese!)

I failed to grab a picture of dinner because I was too busy celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and Valentine's Day!  :D  We went to Miller's Ale House in Watertown.  I had the Cajun Chicken Pasta (linguine tossed with blackened chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms, scallions and a spicy alfredo sauce) with a Palm Speciale beer.  My babe had the prime rib with sweet potato fries (with a creamy cinnamon dip that was legit crack!) and an Arrogant Bastard Ale & a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat.  

Dessert: For birthday treat time, we split the Capt'n Jack's Buried Treasure!  Let's just say...homemade ice cream cake, caramel, and Heath bar crunch atop an Oreo crust, all swimming in hot fudge sauce.  Y. U. M.

I hope everyone had a fun Valentine's Day!  And, as always, have a fantastic week!

Did you have or do anything special on Valentine's Day?  I would love to hear about it!


  1. Your snack looks like mine most days! My 3 favorites lately are string cheese, clementines and always carrots! :)

  2. Fran: It was definitely a lot of fun! A nice change of pace during the week :)

    Courtney: Dare I say they are the makings of the perfect snack?! Quick & portable...and tasty lol

    Thank you both for stopping by!

  3. Oh wow... that ice cream sounds like a rather amazing way to end the day :) That mix of flavors is one I would have certainly ordered!

  4. Tessa: They also have another Capt'n Jack dessert w/ Nutter Butters & peanut butter sauce on it =:O
