Mini Wave and Celebration To Me!

That’s a quote by none other than Mr. Chandler Bing from Friends. ‘The One with the Football’.

Thursday my office had a mini celebration/lunch for PA week and everyone was surprised when I actually ate. ย We had fajitas, and I decided I could make it healthy! Here was the lineup, it was SO much food.




Now this was just ridiculous. They sent over so much sour cream it looked like a pie. No one needs that much sour cream. It was probably 10-12 of us?


My plate! Okay so yeah I had 2 of them… But I loaded up with salad, then put the chicken fajitas on top with salsa. I had one small piece of the steak fajita just to try, boy was it good.

My day ended up being stressful at the end so I had to eat my pre-gym snack in the car.


Tilapia while driving… classy!

When Thursday was over I practically jumped for joy. I live for days off now. Friday’s are my favorite just because I know I have 3 whole days. Phoebe and I ended up sleeping in (we got up at 7:30 but then she convinced me that we should go back to bed). It was rainy and cold and the perfect day for it!

In the early afternoon I was in Annapolis and stopped in the best coffee shop ever.


Just look at all this stuff!


There were two walls of these teas!


And about 3 rows of these coffees ๐Ÿ™‚


I chose these, couldn’t say no.


And this coffee for home!

I also bought the most ADORABLE mug.


I love it ๐Ÿ™‚


True words.

When I ordered my soy latte the girl behind the counter said just to let you know we now offer almond milk. WHAT!? YOU DO! I almost jumped up and down out of excitement. YES ALMOND MILK PLEASE! I’ve been complaining for a long time that coffee shops need to carry it and I never thought it would happen. Too bad this place is about 45 minutes from my actual apartment.


Back at G-Mama and Pop Pops Phoebe was acting a fool, so I said off to the gym I go!



I made it a shoulder day. My cardio was 45 minutes of intense spin class. You guys know I love that darn spin bike! I think it’s because I’m alone in the room.


If you spin regularly, I HIGHLY recommend the shoes. They make such a huge difference. I’ve had these close to 9 years I guess and they still look almost new.

Then it was time to lift!


Always the only woman in the weight room. Move over fella’s!

  • Seated shoulder press, 15-20 lb weights, 10-20 reps x 4 sets
  • Side bends, 35 lb plate, 12 reps x 3 sets each side
  • Front plate raise, 35 lb plate, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Torso twists with 35 lb plate, 10 reps x 3 sets
  • Lateral raises with 10 lb kettles, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Arm circles, 8 lb kettles, 20 reps x 2 sets each direction
  • Rear delt fly’s, 25 lb weights- 10 reps x 4 sets ย GUY NEXT TO ME SAME WEIGHTS! I did more! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Upright rows, cables, 50-60 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Rotator cuff open and close, 20 lb weights, 10 reps x 4 sets

Finished with some stretching and bundled up because it’s rainy and chilly here!


Since the weather screamed “comfort food”, late Thursday night I made a low carb turkey meat loaf that I ate on Friday. It turned out pretty good for my first one ever!


It was really moist too. I’m saving this recipe for a little special project ๐Ÿ™‚


So that’s the past two days. Tomorrow morning is a big day for Miss Buffay and I. We have orientation for obedience training. I had to fill out a small survey and when asked what Phoebe’s specific temperament and behavior issues are, I answered like this:

  • Needs Mommyโ€™s CONSTANT attention! She whines A LOT. A jumper too and kicks her back legs when she doesnโ€™t get her way. (Basically a diva).ย 

I had DiPeppe cracking up. I had to describe the dog accurately! This sentence says a lot and describes her to a tee. At least they will know what they are in for!

Have a great Saturday. Wish us luck!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,


P.S. If you haven’t watched the new season of American Horror Story: The Coven on FX, I suggest you run to your TV and find it to DVR. I loved season one, hated season 2, and season 3 comes back with a win. It’s about witches! LOVE IT! Bravo creator Ryan Murphy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yum to that food they brought you at work! It looks good. I do agree, that is A LOT of sour cream, I thought it was a whipped cream pie at first! I wish so many more places *cough cough Starbucks* would offer almond milk, it’s the main reason I haven’t gone in over 6 months. Hahahahaha love that picture of Phoebe. Yay for shoulder workouts!! I’ve been dying to up my workouts, but I just don’t have time before class, and the sad part is, I don’t have time in the afternoon after class either, guess I can’t complain much now, Nursing School will be more intense haha. Good luck with the training today! I’m sure you guys will do great ๐Ÿ™‚ YES!!! I too loved the first, hated the second (I stopped watching it about halfway through because I thought it was horrible). Hopefully I will be catching up on the first episode today!

      it does look like a cream pie! Fooled!

    ahh sour cream is totally my weakness though. Fajitas sound so good, I’ll have to make a fajita salad this week. I also love the first season of American Horror Story but never watched the second. I’ll have to check out the third sseason!
