A Productive Day

I hope everyone’s weekend has been enjoyable so far! I had a relatively productive day which was great because I won’t have too much time to work on my to do list tomorrow, but we’ll get to that later.

I had an early-morning Shellac appointment, so that was my first stop of the day. Afterwards, I hit the gym & completed 50 minutes on the elliptical, varying/increasing my resistance throughout the workout.

For some reason, I’ve been craving Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee, so I made a pit-stop there on my way home from the gym.

I was totally obsessed with DD iced coffee over the summer, but as the weather got cooler, I reverted back to my traditional hot cup of joe. I’m blaming my rekindled taste for the cold stuff on the unseasonably warm winter we’ve been having (excluding last Saturday’s snow).

I kept breakfast relatively light with a cranberry English muffin (from my freezer stash) topped with butter & jelly & a strawberry-banana Chobani.

Next on my agenda was writing my lesson plans for the upcoming week & taking care of some laundry. While I worked, the pug lounged in the sun (his favorite). I couldn’t resist a little photo shoot.

For lunch, Chris & I both enjoyed leftovers from last night’s undone stuffed pepper casserole.

This may have been even better the second time around! Chris & I can’t stop raving about it & actually plan to make it for dinner again this coming week. Try it; you won’t regret it, especially if you’re a fan of stuffed peppers.

I spent the rest of my afternoon crossing items off my to-do list & eventually ventured out to church. Chris & I were craving pizza for dinner (no surprise there) so we ordered a Sicilian pie from our favorite pizza place. I topped mine with pizza seasoning & garlic salt & dug in!

I went back for seconds, too!

As always, I needed something sweet after my meal, but I kept it simple by enjoying a single Ghirardelli dark chocolate & sea-salt caramel square. It did the trick!

Note the fresh Shellac! :-)

I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. My sister, Corinne, turns the big 3-0 on Tuesday, but we’re getting together for a special family lunch tomorrow!

We’re heading to Max Brenner in Philadelphia. While the restaurant does have “regular food,” it specializes in chocolate!

“Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man, provides a “chocolate mood:” a person being surrounded by huge bricks, candles, pralines, colorful toy tins and crates filled with cocoa beans. Each person’s chocolate experience is unique to the individual as it brings out different emotions in each and every person.”

Let’s just say I can’t wait!

Plans for the rest of the evening include finishing up everything I won’t get done tomorrow once I’m in my sugar coma. 😉

Have a great night!

Tell me about YOUR day!
