Omelet Bomb

What up! It’s Monday again. The weeks just go by SO fast for me. Each time it’s Monday again I’m amazed.

But I’m here to tell you about Sunday. Trusting my body, I decided against my morning run for my hip’s sake and instead had a leisurely morning of reading The Girl Who Plated with Fire (obsessed) and doing a couple loads of laundry.

Once I worked up an appetite, the husband and I went to our favorite breakfast place in town, Wild Berries:

Wild Berries serves up fresh and delicious breakfasts – and their omelet’s are the bomb!

Though this tempted me…

I stuck with my tried and true veggie omelet…

which was as big as my head! Seriously! But there omelets are the bomb – SO dang good. Plus a side of fruit – and a couple bites of Shane’s pancakes. I probably got through 2/3 the omelet before throwing in the towel  napkin. haha

Wild Berries also has a sweet coffee/smoothie bar in the middle of the restaurant and mile long list of shakes/smoothies/coffee drinks. Although I just stuck with coffee and half and half, I got a little excited when I spotted a couple sexy Vita-Mixes:

Oooh yeah 😉 bahah

It was nice to have a relaxing breakfast out for a change. Between my weekend runs, training clients, and being out of town on weekends, we hardly get a chance to do it, but it was quite nice! Plus, this breakfast kept me full for a good five hours, clearly.

I think I’m still full…

Ok we know that’s a lie 😉

Well I’m off for an easy four miler + some ab work! Hopefully the body will cooperate with me this time 🙂

What do you usually order when out for breakfast? I’m usually an omelet girl – just because I rarely make omelets at home. I’m horrible at it!!

Vitamix Pipe Dreams and an Anniversary Giveaway

Afternoon!

Thanks for all the anniversary wishes 😀 I have to admit, I felt a little vulnerable posting all of those wedding pictures. But…then I figured they’re posted elsewhere on the internet (with our permission) for the public to see, so why not?

I woke up this morning and deemed it only appropriate to bring out my anniversary present to make an anniversary breakfast:

For those of you who guessed a Vitamix, you guessed right.

I may or may not have done a happy dance…

However, the trickster got me at first. A box filled with a cook book…cotton balls…and bricks? “Well cotton balls represent the 2nd year anniversary,” he said. By this time, I knew he was joking 😉

 See what he did for the first traditional anniversary gift here.

The real deal.

Obviously, I began filling it up and blending my little heart frozen bananas out:

Let it be known that I thought owning a Vitamix was among the wishes of finally finding “a spot” for my keys, leaving the house on time for work, and dating Justin Timberlake. You know, a pipedream.

smoothest smoothie evaa.

Shane’s response to my Vitamix pleas were along the line of "you’re out of your freaking mind.”

Needless to say, it was a very pleasant surprise 😀

the vortex I’d only heard about in story books Vitamix reviews.

I immediately put it to the test.

What used to take around 5 MINUTES of me looking like I was dirty dancing with my old blender (it took constant shaking in order for it to get what I was blending smooth) took the Vitamix not even 30 seconds.

I was amazed. And I obviously have a slight obsession with pumpkin pie smoothies in a bowl with crumbled whole wheat pumpkin bread on top 😉

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment about a dream that you once thought was a pipe dream, but has since come true! It can be silly like owning a Vitamix (actually…that’s very serious business) or serious like a huge life change.

Comment away – and I’ll pick a winner at random and in Thursday morning’s post 😀

Have a fabulous end to your Monday, friends! I’m off to do a wee bit more work, and then Shane and I are going to celebrate the anniversary a little more 🙂
