If you buy a minivan, you’re basically saying “I’m complacent”

This weekend has been a lot of fun despite spending all of Friday afternoon and night doing homework. 


Some highlights of Friday involved playing with my food:

DSC01155 Look how pretty! 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup mashed butternut squash, 6 oz plain 0% Chobani, 1/4 cup raw oats, pumpkin pie spice


DSC01158 Strawberry and peanut butter sandwich. Soooooo good.

I took a break from running on Friday….. and Saturday…….. and Sunday hehehe. I’ll get back to it tomorrow :)

As part of my “educational component” I want to include more of in the blog, I decided I will include some of my research from my literature review in today’s post. Don’t pay attention to the citations. I must say that upon discovering this information, I wasn’t very surprised. I mean, who in the family really does the grocery shopping most of the time anyway?

“The purpose of the NLEA was to educate consumers enabling healthier food choices.1,11 However in 1996, two years after the nutrition labels were mandatory, 70% of those surveyed found the Nutrition Facts Panel difficult to understand.12, 13 Recent 2006 research indicates that approximately 61.5% of U.S. adults used the NFP. The majority of label users are well-educated, high-income women.”


I slept wayyy too much and wasted Saturday morning. I regret it every weekend yet it continues. But as long as it’s only happening on the weekends.

I also finally made my dream Green Monster. Spinach, banana. pumpkin, peanut butter. Good stuff. I freaked out Raf and his siblings with this thing LOL


Saturday night we had plans to go see a comedian for a friend’s birthday.  We went to see Bob Marley. You may know him as one of the cops from the Boondock Saints. “Where you going? Nowhere!” He was hilarious. The title of this post is from the start of one of his jokes ;)



Afterwards we headed down the street to another friend’s apartment to hang out, wait for people,then head out to a bar for some DANCING!

Fun night with friends :)


Slept through breakfast as usual. Man my weekends are not very morning friendly. We did manage to sit down for lunch as a fam today though.

Homework and football coincided as per usual for a Sunday. A slice of pepperoni pizza was also imbibed.


Soon we will be heading out to see Paranormal Activity 2. Yeah who goes to the movies on a Sunday night? Well some people had to work last night and couldn’t go out so we made extra plans for today. Like a said, friend-filled weekend!

What fun things did you do this weekend? Have you ever seen a stand-up comedian?


  1. I've never heard of a strawberry and peanut butter sandwich, but it sounds kind of good! I do peanut butter banana pretty frequently, so strawberry shouldn't be too much of a leap.

    As for comedians, I've seen Jim Gaffigan (twice) and Demetri Martin.

    You'll have to let us know how paranormal activity 2 was, I'm too big of a wuss to go see it!

  2. omg, strawberry and peanut butter sandwich. I wish I would have thought of that!

    I've neveer seen a comedian, although I am OBSESSED with kathy griffin. Most people find her obnoxious, but I can never get enough of her!

  3. I hate when waste my weekend mornings too.. *sigh* But it's so hard to wake up at a reasonable hour sometimes. I went to see Dane Cook a couple of years ago and I loved it. Couldn't stop laughing the entire time!

  4. I may be the only person in the world who doesn't find stand up comedy funny.

    I wasnt to see paranormal activity II! Although I'm not sure why, this weekend I watched the first one and its been freaking me out since.
