Working for the weekend

Happy Valentine’s Day!  It was a good one for me with fun moments with hubby scrunched into my work time – I worked yesterday and today and had pet-sitting duties on top of that.  I can’t complain too much, though.. look at this face!

Work activities included a men’s bball game (which we won!) and a day-long cheering event full of scantily clad toddlers (no, I’m not kidding), tweens and teens, along with their awful, rude mothers!  It was not a pleasant way to begin my Valentine’s.  Luckily, hubby was waiting to ease my tension when I got home and I had a beautiful bouquet waiting for me full of carnations and baby roses.  Smelled as lovely as it looked..

I was super excited to give Steve his gift (more like a gift for us both, I cannot lie).  I got him a Blu Ray player along with the newest Harry Potter on Blu Ray.  Squee!!  Post-present exchange, he shocked me by ordering a new television for us!  Double squee!!

Our V-day date was spent at Uno’s, which was surprisingly unfilled.  I figured we’d have at least a 30-minute wait, but we were seated right away.  Good vibes.. good vibes.  I ordered a salad that I have not gotten before:

Shreds of Napa and green cabbage, carrots, lime-marinated grilled chicken breast, crispy tortilla strips and field greens are tossed in a soy-ginger vinaigrette then sprinkled with cilantro and sesame seeds. (as described by the menu)

I had the tortilla strips removed and the dressing on the side.  It was easily one of my top 5 salads of all time!  The lime marinade made the chicken super yummy!  I will return for this one.


Other weekend eats included some awesomeness – Friday night spaghetti (Newman’s Own Sockarooni Sauce + ground turkey).  Mine was served over Tofu Shirataki Noodles with creminis and spinach.

Notice those bread wedges?  I got a little creative with my broiler – toasted up a Sun-dried Tomato Flat Out wrap with salt and garlic powder.  Hubby’s had some bubbly cheddar on top.


Perfect accompaniment to spaghetti!  Other weekend eats included a fab lunch –  2 Morningstar Farms Grillers Chick’n patties with some steamed asian-style veggies.  The condiments were yellow mustard and REDUCED SUGAR ketchup.  I love that I was able to find this stuff!  How do you like the ketchup/mustard artwork?

Sunday’s breakfast was a warming bowl o’ oats with blueberries, 0% Fage with some MixMyGranola thrown in. 

It was a good pick-me-up before dealing with the cheerleaders.

I’m so glad that I got to spend (part of) today with the love of my life, especially since today is our first married V-day.  I am eager to spend the next 50 with him too!

Did you do anything out of the ordinary today or just veg out?  Personally, I’m looking forward to my veg out on Tuesday and my early morning workout tomorrow!

    Are you a cheerleading coach? Sigh. I’ve always held a secret desire to be a cheerleader. I’d love to do competitions and jumps and throws and choreography. Sadly, my dream will never be realized…

      Heh! No, not a coach, but I work at the venue where the competition was held. I cheered for a few years in high school until a knee injury did me in. It was fun, but there were certainly better things in life – don’t regret that unfulfilled dream 🙂

Hi Ya’ll!

Hiya! I'm Heidi, a 28-year-old "retired" student living in Virginia. I am a newlywed and currently on the hunt for a full-time job that will use either my Biology or Secondary Education degree. In the meantime, I work in retail and at an event venue part-time. When I'm not working, I love to kill hours at the gym, scrapbook, and act as a domesticated diva to keep my hubby happy!
