My Favorite Kind of Wizzle

Hi guys ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Sunday!

Last night, I was kind of a bumโ€ฆ.and it felt glorious. My cousins and aunt and I watched Father of the Bride (the first and the second), gabbed and chillaxed. Driving on road trips sucks the life out of you, so it was very nice to chill ๐Ÿ™‚

I snacked on some edamame:


And then we headed to the giant Targizzle to buy things we donโ€™t really need (Target is a sneaky trickster) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™ve decided that a Starbucks determines whether a Target is going to be baller or not. As you can probably guess, ours in Valdizzy doesnโ€™t have a Bizzle or grocery section. Just the bare bones kinda stuff. I ended up not going too crazy because weโ€™re going to the mall on Monday, but did find a supercute new headband ๐Ÿ˜€

After that, we went to my favorite kind of Wizzle.

My aunt and I shared the edamame:

edamame (2)

And I got the standard:

(Kidโ€™s teriyaki shrimp add vegetables, steamed instead of fried, brown rice, no sauce)


It was everything I could ever wish for ๐Ÿ˜€



Sounds ok with me ๐Ÿ˜€

Well weโ€™re off to the beach and then going to church but I hope that you all have a beautiful Sunday spend with those you love (miss you, pilot). If you celebrate Easter, have a very Happy Easter <3

    Happy Sunday and Happy Easter! <3

    Hope you have a great day! Love the pup's bunny ears! Too cute!!!

    The best Targizzles are the super ones–have you been to one? We have them here at school in NC but not back at home. I have never in my life gone in for less than an hour. True story.

    Wishing you and the puppies a really nice Easter. Hope the Easter Bunny is good to you and brings you lots of carrots and some good dark chocolate! Never been to a “super” Target . . . must make a point to find one and go. I did, however, make the trek to Ikea yesterday – 2 hours away . . . my husband just loves the “cartevators” there. Bought a few things for the kitchen. Probably a good thing it’s so far away – I would go broke.

    Take care,

    Sounds like a good fortune ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Easter!!

  5. jen trinque on April 4, 2010 at 9:56 am

    Ahh! So cute with the bunny ears!

  6. Gina G on April 4, 2010 at 9:58 am

    happy easter to you too! that fortune ain’t lyin =)

  7. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on April 4, 2010 at 10:08 am

    I have to agree with the Target observation. An added Starbucks = added awesomeness. That place is DEF a sneaky trickster. It’s like I walk in and suddenly *need* a million things!

  8. Midgetkeeper on April 4, 2010 at 10:12 am

    Love Pei Wei, happy Easter!

  9. Erica on April 4, 2010 at 10:21 am

    hahahahah love the puppers in the bunny ears- too cute. Sounds like you are having an incredible weekend so far. Great meal last night- love that you got it without the sauce. Happy Easter

  10. Jenny on April 4, 2010 at 10:26 am

    Mmm isn’t pei Wei awesome? Have a great day!

  11. Ashley on April 4, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Aw Viesa looks thrilled. LOL.

  12. sarah on April 4, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I have never been to Pei Wei! Got to try it!

    Happy Easter, Gina, have a fantastic time in FL!

  13. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on April 4, 2010 at 10:43 am

    Pei Wei is awesome. Agreed. I also agree about Targizzle being a sneaky tricker!! Happy Easter!

  14. D on April 4, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Just wondering, why do you order the kids meal? Considering you already make so many modifications, that seems extreme ๐Ÿ™

    • gina (fitnessista) on April 4, 2010 at 11:59 am

      Have you seen the portion sides at pei wei? They’re extremely large. A kids size is actually a good size portion of brown rice (about a cup and a half?). I don’t like to pay more money for a crazy amount of food

      • D on April 4, 2010 at 2:38 pm

        I wasn’t attacking you, I was just curious! And no, I’ve never been to eat there so I don’t know. Without knowing those kinds of details, it just comes across like you’ve ordered a tiny childrens meal. Can’t blame me for wondering!

        • gina (fitnessista) on April 4, 2010 at 7:44 pm

          No worries, girl. Its hard to tell from the pic but it was still a very satisfying portion- I left full and with a food babay ๐Ÿ™‚ its pretty much the only place I’ll get kid’s sizes at ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hilary on April 4, 2010 at 11:03 am

    What a great fortune!

    I had a lazy night in lastnight, too, and loved every minute of it. I caught the tail end of Father of the Bride on tv. I love that movie!

  16. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on April 4, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Awww I love Viesa with the bunny ears!

    Once again, I love how you change your order to make them more healthy (and a little more appetizing too)!

    I’ve never had a super great experience with the Starbucks in grocery stores unfortunately! They can’t make any of the drinks I like. ๐Ÿ™

    • Fitnessista on April 4, 2010 at 8:50 pm

      thank you!

  17. Diana on April 4, 2010 at 11:50 am

    Happy Easter! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Angela @ A Healthy Fit on April 4, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    I find that going to Target with the hubs keeps me from buying at least $80 worth of things that I didn’t even go in there for. Oh, Target, how I love thee!

  19. Run Sarah on April 4, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    Happy Easter Gina, hope you have a wonderful day!

  20. Kelly on April 4, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    Happy Easter! Glad you have time to relax with family and get the important things done (aka shopping ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

  21. Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place on April 4, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    aww love your puppy’s headband! so precious! happy easter to you, too.

  22. Susan @ Journey for Health on April 4, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    I am in total agreement about the Target quality. In my city, there is ONE Target. No Starbucks in it. ๐Ÿ™ I went home (San Diego, CA) last summer and we stopped by the Target nearest my parents’ house and I was amazed that there is a Starbucks in it. Total jealousy ensued for the next 10 minutes until I left the store (I had just stopped by to use their restroom because they are on one end of a mall)…but wow. I want to go back home to live. I totally feel you on your Valdosta frustrations. Corpus isn’t a large city and it does NOT have the amenities…

  23. Allison @ Food For Healing on April 4, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    happy easter. Glad to hear you are relaxing!

  24. The Pilot on April 4, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    Miss you, too ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Easter!

  25. Lauren @ eater not a runner on April 4, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Happy easter….love the bunny ears!

  26. whitney @ whitinspired on April 4, 2010 at 4:55 pm

    Gah I love edamame…I could eat it everyday. And Target is sneaky isn’t it?!

  27. LisaG on April 4, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Hope you had a Happy Easter enjoying the family.

  28. Gloria on April 4, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    I agree, does anyone else make a ton of changes to the menu and then order a kiddy portion?

    • gina (fitnessista) on April 4, 2010 at 7:40 pm

      Hey gloria,
      I almost never order kid’s sizes but the entrees at pei wei are huge (you can see online that each entree is two full servings)- a kids size there just makes it a normal herfty portion. I hate to waste food, and pay more money for it when I know I won’t be able to finish it

  29. Jessica @ The Process of Healing on April 4, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Awwww cute puppy!!
    Happy Easter!

  30. Heather (Heather's Dish) on April 5, 2010 at 12:05 am

    pei wei seriously has the best steamed rice…the perfect texture!!! sounds like you and i had the exact same movie day yesterday…i watched the first and the second father of the bride (and then watched my wedding video in between). ’twas glorious!
