A stressful morning, a lunch date, and Trader Joe’s

This morning had a stressful start.  Since I had a 10:15 doctor’s appointment this morning, I set my alarm to get up at 8.  I was so tired that I turned off my alarm clock and woke up on my own at 8:45.  I had to shower, get ready, and feed Annabelle and leave the house no later than 9:45.  I somehow made it out of the house by 9:47 but ran into traffic on the way.  Despite all of this, I made it to my appointment and I am cleared for all of my normal activities.  Chris and I have a date with INSANITY tomorrow morning and I will be hitting the trail on Saturday morning!

Next on the agenda was lunch with my friend Dana and her beautiful 3 week old baby girl.  We ate at Don Pablo’s and since I was still flustered when I arrived (I was like 45 minutes late…) and AB was crying, I failed to take any pictures of the food.  The lunch entertainment was watching how many groups were sat at the table behind us and then asked to be moved…our babies were sleeping angels and I have no idea why people didn’t want to sit next to a table with two infants under 6 weeks old.

Don Pablo’s lists the calorie count for all of the dishes…it’s pretty difficult to order something when you know it has 1500 calories.  We both ordered the Skinny Enchiladas with black beans.  I believe our dish had 465 calories.  We will not count the calories in the adult beverages that we may or may not have consumed.

After lunch I decided to stop at Trader Joe’s for a few things.

I had forgotten that the shopping carts are not very large and AB’s car seat took up the entire thing.  I was able to put some things in the child seat, but I was forced to make hard decisions.  Do I get apples or chocolate chip cookies?

Here is what I bought:

  • pita chips
  • multigrain pancake/waffle mix
  • chocolate cats cookies (for people, not for cats)
  • whole wheat hamburger buns
  • chili lime turkey burgers
  • chunky guacamole
  • frozen strawberries
  • edamame
  • orange chicken
  • rice
  • sweet potato gnocchi
  • lavender hand and body lotion

A little later on I went to Giant and bought bananas, eggs, and yogurt.  I really went to the store for cookies and cream ice cream but let’s pretend that didn’t happen.

Have you seen these things?  I wear my ponytail holder as a bracelet every day…why did I not think of this?

Even though my best friend Lauren informed me that nobody cares what I had for dinner, I will tell you anyway :).

The other half of my Subway sub, an apple, and some pita chips.

I am super exhausted so please keep your fingers crossed that Annabelle is ready to sleep tonight!

AB is sporting her baby jail-bird outfit tonight…I absolutely love these socks. ❤

DO YOU HAVE A TRADER JOE’S WHERE YOU LIVE?

ARE YOU A FAN OF MEXICAN FOOD?  MARGARITAS MAYBE?

ANYBODY ELSE NEED A GOOD NIGHT OF SLEEP?
