Impromptu Date Night!

Without eating dinner the night before, I was HANGRY when I woke up.  I ended up eating a giant copycat granola bar – I seem to never cut them all the same size, and my last row I had two giant ones – probably 400 calories each, but that’s all I ate for breakfast.  That’s the last bite – I ate the whole thing in the car ride to work.

I have to say that since we are down one secretary in the office, I am loving being busy again at work.  So much better than sitting at my desk making scratch pads out of printer paper that people print and never pick up.

Before I knew it, it was time to work out.  Since I knew I would be working last night, I ended up just walking for 30 minutes at 8% incline and 4.0 mph.

I thought I had the rest of my potato soup in the work fridge, but realized I must have brought it home.  Doh!  So I picked up Jimmy John’s – I always get the Vito with no tomato or onion – extra cherry peppers!  I also bought two loaves of their day old bread for .50 each.  I plan on making garlic crostini – so good – and delicious with Merkt’s Port Wine Cheese!

When I got back to my desk, the mail came.  I’ve been waiting for this to come in the mail.  We have a local counsel that actually sends this to us every year for Easter.  He does all the drawings himself!

I think anyone can have any religious belief they want, but I just find this odd to send this to a business establishment.  He sends another card just as creepy at Christmas time.

I switched into my work shirt, got to work only to realize that they had FIVE servers on the floor with only 3 reservations.  Really?  So I took a menu test (aced it!) and then told the manager that I was cutting myself.  He was fine with that!  I called Tony and I told him I hadn’t planned anything for dinner, so we decided we would meet up at our local restaurant for a couple beers and pizza.  Here was my happy face getting back in the car and coming home!

Although with the traffic it took me nearly an hour to get there.  So this was just perfect to get this beer within a minute of walking in the door!

We ended up ordering an appetizer – something I’ve never had before – fried artichoke hearts!  They were good – and I LOVE the marinara sauce at this restaurant – I think I ate nearly all of it.

We ended up bringing the pizza home and catching up on the DVR.

Well, that is until someone, I am not going to name names (Tony!) fell asleep.  With the remote in his hand.  No worries though!  Did you know that if you have AT&T Uverse you can add an app on your phone and it acts just like a remote.  I can change channels, pull stuff off our DVR – it’s awesome!  I can also watch any live show on the app too.

We have unlimited everything with our phones, so I don’t know how much data it would take up if you use it – but its nice to have.  Especially if I am at the gym and use a piece of equipment that doesn’t have a t.v. attached to it, I can just watch t.v. on my phone.

Sadly, I didn’t realize how close I was to 10,000 steps before going to bed last night – so close!  Had I looked I would have done a couple laps around the house!

I have today off from my day job.  Tony and I plan to do our grocery shopping for Easter Sunday.  I work tonight, but then am off on Saturday night!  I am meeting Hannah at noon at Wok n Fire and then we are going to go thrifting.  I haven’t seen her in over a month – way too long!   I won’t be blogging again until Monday – so have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Have a great weekend! Yay for impromptu date nights! I do the same thing with my Fitbit if I’m that close. We went to NYC last year for my best friend’s 40th b-day and we walked almost 20,000 steps during the day so when we got to the hotel we paced back and forth in our hotel room until it rolled over that amount! HAHA

  2. Glad you got to have your impromptu date night!! I love pizza & beer. You just can’t have one without the other! Not sure about the fried artichoke hearts though. But then I’ve never tried artichokes before so I could be missing out. lol
    Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!! :-D

  3. HaHa – I can’t believe you were that close to 10,000 steps – oh, well you will get them today!!!
    Hooray for date night! And, fried artichoke hearts? Sounds interesting!!!
    I always forget about using that U-Verse app!

  4. You and that Boddingtons :) They should have you as a spokes person. I like how you “cut yourself”. I think only you could get away with such a thing. It is good you had a date night. Woo hoo for Hannah time and thrifting ! Enjoy your weekend. Happy Easter!

  5. I used to work in an office where we’d get invoices from a vendor who put Bible verses on the bill. I’m with you, worship any religion you desire; but it just seems strange in business – um, like a construction business.

    Have a great weekend, Biz!

  6. I think there are some people who are just very convinced that they need to spread their faith. Sounds like this guy is one of them. We used to have a whole coffee/donut shop chain around here where the owner put bible verses on the cups and napkins. They had good coffee though!

    Glad you got an impromptu date – sometimes those are the best kind.

    Enjoy your day with Hannah and have a Happy Easter!

  7. I love the Vito, too, only I get mine all the way. ;)

    Hope tonight is busy for you at the restaurant!

    Happy Easter – enjoy your Hannah time this weekend!

  8. By all means believe what you want to believe but that is one frightening Easter card! I love that you and Tony had a spur of the moment date night. Those are the best.

    I rarely crave dairy anymore, but tonight was a double whammy with your yummy looking pizza pic and my husband eating the best pizza around here. It’s brick oven pizza with fresh roasted tomatoes, spinach and artichoke hearts. I asked to please eat it in the other room. It was just too much to handle tonight!

    Have a wonderful weekend. Happy Easter!

  9. Wow, that card is creepy….! So glad you had an impromptu date night. Those are my fav!!! Hope you had a great Easter!

  10. You know I’ve done that: I remember one time being that close to my daily goal as you were and I was supposed to go to bed but I kept on walking upstairs to nail my 10,000 steps :)
