Sorry for the lack of posting. Right now I am currently straddling 3 different jobs and it has left me with absolutely no time to blog. Hopefully, I will be cutting down to only 2 jobs this week. Have I mentioned that I have trouble saying no?
My goal for this weekend was to find some time to hang out with this crazy kid:
Chase has additional free time this month, so I have been introducing him to one of my BFF’s.
I have been trying to turn Chase into a runner our entire relationship; while, I have come to accept the fact that he will never run a marathon with me, it has been fun to take him on my treadmill runs with me.(Yes, we are that annoying couple who runs on neighboring treadmills).
When we weren’t running this weekend, we were trying to carve out time to go on a date.
I recently was notified via e-mail of a marvelous dining deal from Don Pablos. Since signing up for the Habeneros club, my frugal frog heart has been dying to return to redeem some of the coupons that have been burning a hole in my pocket!
During our visit, we redeemed our free dip sampler, which we earned for simply signing up for this free rewards card.
Chase was TOTALLY pumped!
Ever since going paleo, dining out has been a bit tricky as I must avoid gluten at all cost. However, this is rather easy at Mexican restaurants. My go-to paleo order is fajitas minus the tortillas, cheese, rice, beans, and sour cream.
Basically, I eat a skillet full of chicken and grilled onions…some might think this strange. I, however, think it DELICIOUS! I also appreciate not having a crippling stomach ache for dessert.
This meal makes me happy!
The greater part of this weekend was spent reading 40 page graduate papers–gah! And also creating pages and pages of course syllabi…However, we did participate in a rather festive event last night which included seeing a 3 story Christmas tree made out of Peeps.
Yes, indeed, this entire tree is handcrafted from those marshmallow confections. And here is the proof:
How stinking amazing is that?! For those of you who may not know, Bethlehem, PA is home to Just Born Inc. (aka PEEPS!)
Although I am not a fan of eating peeps, I think they are arguably the most adorable food, ever!
What did you do this weekend? Did you see any great Christmas decorations? Any Christmas trees that are cooler than the Peep tree?
