Let There Be Menchies

Hi guys! Happy Sunday <3 Hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxing day.

Last night was SO much fun 😀


My cousin, the Pilot and I hit up ESPN bar to chill with the sports fans and watch Bama dominate… whomever they were playing 😉

I don’t tend to pay much attention to football games, but I love hanging out with everyone 😀

Sports fans:


To drink, I ordered a POM margarita, which ended up being wayyyyy too sweet.


I drank about half before calling it good.

The table got a plate of nachos to share, so I grabbed a couple of the chips from the sides that didn’t have toppings on them (they were meat nachos)


Since we had eaten a late lunch at Urban Flats, I was still stuffed from my wheat veggie flatwich and salad:


But never too stuffed for MENCHIE’S!!!



I like it a little, can ya tell? 😀
This is partially because we have NO froyo places in Valdosta, so when I get the chance, I tend to go a little crazy 😉

menchies (2)

See the determination in my eyes?? Haha.

At Menchie’s, you fill your container up with yogurt and then add toppings of your choice. It’s a beautiful concept really… Valdizzy needs to jump on this.

My Menchie’s:


Vegan pineapple froyo, a little of the cake batter and peanut butter froyo to taste, chocolate syrup and chocolate chips.

The Pilot’s:


He named it the Jaguar- chocolate and original swirl, Reese’s pieces and graham crackers



Chocolate, strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips and hot fudge.


This morning, I took a BEAUTIFUL power yoga class (more on that to come) and am about to get ready for my JOB INTERVIEW!

A little nervous, not gonna lie 😉 But excited.

See ya later today!

    I’ve never heard of Menchies before! Looking forward to the chain creeping up the East Coast! I’m sure the interview will go great – you’re such an upbeat fun person. I agree with Lauren, they’d be crazy not to hire you;)

  4. Katelyn on September 5, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Power yoga is my FAVORITE 🙂 And that veggie flatwich looks to *die* for…I might just have to make one now!

  9. Sana on September 5, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    Hahah! I am surprised your fro-yo cup was overflowing. That happens to me VERY often! Good luck on the interview!!!

  10. holly @ couchpotatoathlete on September 5, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Good luck on your interview!

    Menchies looks delicious – we don’t have anything like that around me either 🙁

    I love how you and The Pilot color coordinate 🙂

  11. Allie (Live Laugh Eat) on September 5, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    My mom wants to open up a shop…seriously. I’m trying to convince her to make it a coffee/bakery/froyo shop since it gets pretty cold here in the winters. Froyo for LIFE!!

    I hope your interview goes well!

  12. Jodie on September 5, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    You will do great on the interview. They will just love you.

    I adore Froyo.

  13. christina cadden on September 5, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    I love menchies! It is my favorite place!

  14. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on September 5, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Good luck on your interview Gina!! That first picture of you and the Pilot is a great one. Hope you have a wonderful day friend! 🙂

  15. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on September 5, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Glad that you had a great yoga class and got your FroYou on!

    From your last post,lovin’ the vegan bakery and I agree…when vegan desserts dont taste like anything’s missing, that’s when you know success has been achieved!

    From an artistic perspective, I LOVE the picture you posted of the woman with tattoos on her forearms working with the vegan dough. It seems so old school to be working with dough and cooking like that and so new school with the tats…very artsy, I dig it!

    The pic of you looks awesome too, of course 🙂

    Good luck on your interview, Gina!!

    That flatwich looks scrumptious! As does the fro-yo! I’m like you, my town doesn’t have a fro-yo shop but the city 30 minutes away does. It’s worth the drive!

  18. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on September 5, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    We have several of those self serve fro yo places in San Diego…I’m a big fan. 🙂
    Good luck on the interview!!

  19. Carrie on September 5, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    I’m going to have to say that the Pilot’s looks the best. Reeses are my weakness.

    Good luck on the interview!

  20. LisaG on September 5, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    You’ll do fine on your interview cuz u know your stuff. I will have your froyo bc the most chocolate wins.

  21. Heather (Heather's Dish) on September 5, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    good luck girl! you’re going to do great 🙂

  22. Alycia [Fit n Fresh] on September 5, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Good luck with the interview!! I’m wicked jealous of the fro-yo, lucky for me a place just opened up 25 minutes from here! 🙂

  23. Neen @ Broad Bean to Runner Bean on September 5, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    good luck with the job interview chicka!!

  24. Ilana on September 5, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    sooo … my dad and i are about two weeks away from opening a self-serve froyo place. so glad to see that they’re popular – not very many of them here in NY!!
    good luck at the job interview!! sending positive vibessss your way!!

  25. Stacey (The Habit of Healthy) on September 5, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    Good luck with the job inteview, I’m sending positive thoughts your way! The fro-yo looks good. 🙂

  26. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on September 5, 2010 at 5:00 pm

  27. Emilyanne on September 5, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    I’m pretty sure I’m kind of slow, but I’m loving the quality of your photos in this post!

    • Fitnessista on September 5, 2010 at 5:37 pm

      thank you!! <3

  28. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on September 5, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Good luck on the interview! Not that you’ll need it, you’ll totally get the job 🙂

  29. Kristina @ spabettie on September 5, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    hee… I am always eating the “side chips” of nachos for that very same reason 🙂

    Good luck!!

  30. Allison on September 5, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Good luck in the interview!!!!!!!!!!!! I always get so bummed when i go to froyo places since “coincidentally” they will always be out of any and all vegan flavors:(:(:(

  31. Stefanie on September 5, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    I am the exact same way with Frozen Yogurt. It’s nearly a 45 minute drive for the good stuff, so I go slighty insane and demand to get it everytime I’m near it! I just got some last night, so I should be good for, ohhh, a day or so! haha

  32. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on September 5, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    Looks delicious! Good luck on the interview – I’m sure you’ll rock it! 🙂

  33. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on September 5, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    We don’t have any self serve fro yo places in my city either. Maybe it’s a good thing though, because I think I would find myself there every night if we did. 😉

    Good luck at your job interview tomorrow!!

  34. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on September 5, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    You and the pilot are SO cute. We have a little fro-yo place just a couple of blocks from where I’ll be living in my sorority house, but it doesn’t have too many toppings and flavors.

  35. Jessica (Fit and Clean) on September 5, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    I haven’t had fro-yo in YEARS! I don’t even know if we have a place near us. You and your Pilot look so happy in the first picture. Big smiles all around 😀

  36. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic on September 5, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    I just went on my first self-serve froyo place last week and it is addicting!!

  37. CaSaundra on September 8, 2010 at 8:23 am

    I am SO jealous of Menchie’s..why oh why can’t MN get a fro yo place..ugh!
