Yesterday ended up being a busy day and evening, so I didn’t get a chance to update the ol’ blog. But I did get a chance to squeeze in my fave office lunchtime activity…
Since we were away at our conference last week we had to skip Friday’s lunchtime yoga session. I have missed it, as well as our awesome instructor, and it was a really relaxing way to end the work week.
My office bestie Lexy has the cutest little preggo belly of all time. She is literally just belly, and looks amazing! You wouldn’t even know she was pregnant from behind, except she has a slight waddle ;). I have loved checking out her bump every day at work, she always dresses it so cute. I will actually be hitting up her baby shower later today, which means two of my favourite things…shower finger foods and party games! Can’t wait for those…
After yoga I had a pretty darn good bagelwich to look forward to.
I topped a toasted whole wheat (Weight Watchers) bagel with goat cheese and jam, and it was sooo delicious. I love the combo of goat cheese and fruit, and I could have gone on eating this forever. So yummy.
I had intended on bringing some sliced up red pepper as a side, but I forgot it when I was packing my lunch :(. No veggies for me. I ended up eating the apple I was saving for my afternoon snack instead, and then my afternoon snack was this…
I saw Mary digging into this in our lunch room, and since I was a snackless wonder I had to join in. I love salsa! Fave condiment, hands down.
After work, Ando and I had to run to his parents to switch cars, as we were borrowing theirs while we got our brakes done (so needed, I was getting embarrassed whenever I had to stop because they were making a terrible grinding sound). Immediately afterwards we hit up the Royal Oak for dinna (which you may remember from my So Nice We Ate There Twice post) with our friends Shane and Candis!
I haven’t seen these two cheeky cats in a while and it was really fun to catch up with them. Good thing, because our food took forever and they kept me distracted so I didn’t start snacking on my own arm. It was really busy in there (ran into my friend Fran also!), and our food seriously did not come until 8:30. I was dying by the time it arrived, and my hungry monster was about to make an appearance…
I selected the shepherd’s pie for my entree, which is kind of a weird choice for me and not something I have ever ordered in a restaurant before. Whenever I have gone out for dinner in a pub with a group of people, someone orders a shepherd’s pie and it always looks delicious. I decided to embrace The Royal Oak’s British atmosphere and go for it.
It was pretty good, and so filling! Even though my tummy was eating itself by that point I could only finish a little over half of it. So beefy! My salad was a nice addition, and I definitely finished that plate.
After our dinner extravaganza, we headed over to Candis and Shane’s for a fun little evening of Euchre and Taboo (which I am terrible at, I always say the word I’m not allowed to say). Good times.
I am excited for this afternoon because I have a lunch date with one of my old and favourite friends, and then Lexy’s baby shower!
I hope you all enjoy your Saturday!
Have you ordered a dish in a restaurant that you wouldn’t usually order and been pleasantly surprised with the outcome?
