What I Got

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all of the lovely compliments on our Thanksgiving meal 😀 We had a good night with just the two of us, and the delicious (and healthy!) eats were just a bonus 😉

Hope you had a wonderful Black Friday 😀 Call me crazy, but it’s one of my favorite holidays of the year. I just love the hustle and bustle…and everything shopping related 🙂

I didn’t do it justice like I did last year in Tucson, but I did wake up at 5:00am to tackle some sales and get in a few fist fights 😉 jk, of course.

So, I don’t have much for you guys today:

– No recipes (they’re in a notebook in my suitcase- we just got to Orlando and I doubt I’ll have time to decipher my chicken scratch until Monday)

-Hardly any food pics (breakfast consisted of Ezekiel stuffing out of the Tupperware, covered in cranberry sauce)

-No fitness (Shopping has been my only workout today)

But here’s what I got:

– Some shenanigans 😉

Tonight, after dropping Viesa off at the pet hotel, we came to my aunt’s house, picked up my aunt and cousin, and went glow-in-the-dark putt-putt golfing.


In case you didn’t know, the pilot and I take miniature golf very seriously.


It was such a blasty 😀 Happy Gilmore was frequently quoted and it was a fun and random thing to do on a Friday night 😀


For dinner, the pilot and my cousin had Steak and Shake… while I had the opposite: a homemade salad beast


It had organic greens, Italian eggplant, orange bell pepper, shallot, tomato and organic Italian herb dressing.

Pretty freaking amazing 😀

The plan for today is:

– Zumbathon! TWO HOURS of Zumba! Be still my heart 🙂

– Find and ugly Christmas sweater for the pilot (I lost the bid on eBay for one I had found for him)

– Outlet malls

– Grilling with the familia

See ya tonight!

    Good luck with the shopping…second hand stores are the way to go or ugly Christmas sweaters. You will have to post a pic when you find one; they are always good for a laugh 🙂

  19. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on November 28, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    I’m really tired right now, and I misread your “Happy Gilmore was frequently quoted” as “Gilmore Girls was frequently quoted.” I thought, Hmmm…that’s interesting! 🙂

    Are you guys going to an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” party? My brother went to one a few years ago and the pictures were hilarious!!!

    • Fitnessista on November 29, 2009 at 9:33 am

      yes, that’s the theme for the squadron christmas party this year- i’m excited 😀

  21. katey on November 28, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    At the mall by my house, there was a STABBING over a tv! nooo joke

  22. katie on November 28, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    Black Friday is one of my favorites too! I’m with you on loving the hussle and bussle!

  23. Jenna on November 28, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    probs the coolest thing ever…glow in the dark mini golf

  24. Maria Hormaza on November 30, 2009 at 2:30 pm

    I also have been going to cafe 118 from the time they opened. =)Everything there is AMAZING!! I also had the Mexican salad once before. The Queso isnt a sauce, its a “pramesan cheese” that replicates the taste of Queso. I wouldnt really call the salad gross, just not for you? =)Next time if you choose to give it a try, tell them to go heavy on the veggies. They are really cool about that kind of stuff! Great following your blog! Glad you got a taste of what we all love as well! p.s. The smores is my fav. dessert!
