Good morning everyone! Happy Monday!
Well I had an AWESOME time at the Snuggie Pub Crawl in Chicago! The weather was picture perfect on both Friday and Saturday! I absolutely love big cities when it’s warm out – everybody is outside enjoying themselves, they’re happy – it’s just great. On Friday evening we had reservations at Uncle Julios – a fabulous Mexican restaurant where they make homeade tortillas in plain view – it was so cool! We all got some of their famous “Swirl” margaritas which is thier blended margarita swirled with sangria…SO good!! For dinner a friend and I split a cheese enchilada platter. Enchilada sauce is what I think makes or breaks an enchilada – and Uncle Julio’s did NOT disappoint!
The rest of the weekend was filled with more good eats, good drinks and great time spent with friends. Oh, and SNUGGIES!!!
We saw some insane Snuggie creations during the our time at the Snuggie Pub Crawl! Mermaid snuggies, business suits made out of snuggies, hippie snuggies, 80’s snuggies, someone wearing a snuggie with a giant bear mascot head…people got dekked OUT!! It was great people watching for sure! We got to sit outside at a lot of the pubs on the crawl – and it was just fantastic. Chicago was sad to see us go, as it poured all day yesterday!
Oh!! When I got home yesterday, I walked in to find an INCREDIBLE surprise on my kitchen counter…2 jars of Barney Butter!!!! My fabulous parents talked to the manager of a grocery store here in town and convinced them to order a box of the crunchy AND the creamy kind!!! Isn’t that the nicest thing you’ve ever heard?! The manager said if they sell well, he may keep ordering them – can you imagine?! Thanks Mom and Dad – you guys are the best!!!! Oh, FYI – I immediately ripped open the chunky kind to try because I’ve only had smooth – and it was sooooo good.
I didn’t have time to go to the grocery store yesterday after I got home (second weekend in a row – I feel so out of my routine!!! ) so I didn’t have any banans for oatmeal. Instead I had a Strawberry Pomegranite Odawalla bar and a sliced apple with the chunky barney butter for breakfast. The apple and BB was just amazing…perfect combo of sweet and salty! I wasn’t wild about the Odawalla flavor – the strawberry was very fake sugary tasting. I did like the texture though – very seedy and crunchy 🙂
For lunch, I’m going to grab something at the cafeteria. I’ll let you know what I pick tonight.
Welcome back to the work week people – hope you have a great day!
ps OH.MY.GOSH. I just looked on weather.com…it’s supposed to be EIGHTY NINE degrees here on Thursday?!?!? Are you kidding me?? I am so psyched!! I see outdoor runs in my future!!
Do you guys like working out in the heat, or would you rather be in an air conditioned gym? Call me crazy, but I absolutely love running in hot, sticky weather!
