What I Ate Wednesday

After a weekend of eating a lot of crap, I was ready to eat some healthy, well balanced meals.

Breakfast: I started my day with Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Oatmeal, always a good one when I know I have a full morning ahead of me.

DSC_0020Afternoon SnackI did a little shopping for a shower gift for Lindsey in the afternoon so I grabbed some grapes on the way out the door to tide me over!

Dinner: I made some amazing Pad Thai.  Casey won’t eat this usually because of the peanuts in it (for some reason he doesn’t like them in this particular dish) so when I make it at home I just leave them out and he LOOOVES it!

It feels so good to get back to eating well after a few days.  As much as I enjoy eating the “crap” food, I certainly do not enjoy how it makes me feel!

Bachlorette Day Two

Day two held all the really fun activities!!

We went to a place called J. Christophers.  I had this thing called a skillet with potatoes, onions, jack cheese, avocado, eggs and smoked turkey.  It was arguably the best breakfast I have ever had!

I highly recommend this place for brunch if you are ever in Savannah.  It was in an old auto garage and they had mismatched mugs which I loved.

After breakfast we headed home and got ready to hit the beach at Tybee Island.  We only stayed about two hours but it was really nice and relaxing.

When we came home, we all took turns showering and spent some time getting dolled up before heading out downtown.  All the restaurants were crazy packed so we ended up going to a burger joint, which is really Lindsey’s favorite anyway so all for the best!

One of my favorite qualities in Lindsey: she eats sandwiches with a fork...I LOVE IT!!

After dinner, we headed to Club One.  It is a huge gay bar and there was an absolutely amazing drag show.  We had planned to start there and then head a few other places.  We stayed there from about 10:30 until 3 when the bar closed!  We had such an incredible time.

On the way home we ran into a Bachelor party and sang christmas carols for quite a while.  Frosty, Jingle Bells, Rudolph, you name it!!

Sunday morning wake up came really quickly.  We had a quick bite at the same restaurant we ate at after the Savannah Marathon and then headed back to Charleston.  I am still catching up on sleep but what an incredible weekend.  I think (at least I hope) Lindsey had the time of her life!!
