"Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things."
– the last lecture

i slept in today :] i love sleeping! anywho. i had major cravings for thai food. so i went on yelp to see where a good thai restaurant was around here. thai basil was the winner! i ordered chicken and tofu pad thai,  yellow curry with chicken and brown rice and and a veggie spring roll. omg it was so amazing. i wanted to eat more but i was so stuffed! i also got thai iced tea which i know will kill my stomach later but its my favorite! [hello lactose intolerant]!  i have a lot of left overs so this will be me yummy lunch again tomorrow!

i was pretty full from lunch and didn't eat a snack in between.  instead i baked those red velvet cupcakes! i had a bite of the boyfriends. ill have to post pictures of them tomorrow. for dinner it was chicken stuffed with laughing cow cheese and topped with marinara sauce. for the sides we have some cut up strawberries and banana and steamed broccoli and cauliflower! i really need to start trying new veggies. the boyfriend just doesn't like anything but those two, oh and carrots.. lol he is such a stubborn eater. 

so i have not been working out :\ no running or 30 day shred. i guess im just enjoying my spring break. lol. i think ill try and run tomorrow. i hate the feeling of being not being active. but im so lazy.. i need to get out of this funk lol

"do not with to be anyone else but who you are, and try to be that perfectly."

mmm breakfast was amazing. i had two banana waffles from trader joes. topped them of with some nutella and cut up strawberries and banana! i think its my favorite breakfast ever!

snack was whole wheat bread, some ham, and cut up gouda cheese. my cheese really didn't melt. i think instead of the toaster oven ill just stick it under the broiler. 

i also had a cup of left over cheese stuffed tortellini and marinara sauce. again i spent the day in front of the tv watching NCIS and ellen. but i did go to target <3 favorite store ever. i saw some bedding that i may get when we move. i also hit up bed bath and beyond to pick up some mixing bowls and a sifter. either tonight or tomorrow night im going to bake some red velvet cupcakes! 

for dinner we had chicken lettuce wraps. super easy:

  • 2 cubed chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoons of olive oil or cooking spray
  • water chestnuts
  • snap peas [or/and any other veggies you want to add]
  • 3 tablespoons of light soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons of rice vinegar
  • a head of lettuce
1. dissolve the brown sugar in the soy sauce and rice vinegar
2. cook chicken  in olive oil or spray pan with cooking spray
3. mix in the water chestnuts and snap peas until heated
4. then stir in the sauce

i still don't know how places get such perfect lettuce cups. mine always tear or never come out right.. lol

- tribe called quest

i ate an odwalla banana nut bar. i was too hungry and forgot to take a picture :/ oops

i also chomped on leftover bbq chicken pizza from last night. i only ended up eating 2 and giving the boyfriend the last slice. 

i really didnt do anything all day. i kinda just bummed it on the sofa and watched NCIS and ellen.. lol i love doing nothing. as a snack i had a half of a whole wheat pita with some trader joes hummus. also i had some grapes. i ate half then froze the other half and snacked on them before dinner :] frozen grapes are amazingly good!

for dinner it was just cheese stuffed tortellini and marinara sauce with some shredded parmesan and a crescent roll. im so excited to be getting a dining table next week! right now we have no dining table. we eat on one small tv tray since the other one broke.. lol

"Good morning star shine, the earth says hello!! "
- Mr. Willy Wonka

oops i slept in until 11pm. i headed over to pool to watch the boyfriend finish up his last game he was refereeing.  then we walked over to extreme pita. i got a whole wheat pita stuffed with grilled chicken, lettuce, green bell pepper, cucumberlettuce, and tzatziki sauce. it was very filling. 

i spent the rest of the day going through the whole apartment, throwing out junk that has piled up. we have a walk through on monday. they want to make sure were not crazy people who destroy apartments.

i worked up quite an appetite. i didn't feel like cooking dinner again tonight. so we headed to san felipes cantina. they have the most delicious salsa ever which had chunky tomatoes, black beans and corn! i ate like half the chips.. lol

they also have some really good mahi mahi fish tacos! i cant believe i ate both tacos! but i enjoyed it. i didn't eat the black beans and rice though. they were icky.

"The long run is what puts the tiger in the cat."
        - Bill Squires

breakfast: banana waffles from trader joes, with some nutella spread on top.  along with a cut up banana and some strawberries. it was so good!!!

the boyfriend and i decided to go to a dodger spring training game. it took us an hour to find the stadium. it really only should have taken us 30 minutes! LOL but it was a beautiful day outside to watch some baseball :]

he wanted tacos, so i got tacos too. they ran out of pico de gallo and put cheese and sour cream on mine :\ it was really gross. i only ended up eating half of one and chucked the rest. $8 for dried out chicken tacos

we then proceeded onto some nacho grande! i ate like 1/3 of this. 

manny played! the dodgers won in the 9th. woohoo!!! 

the boyfriend and i got a special invitation from our apartment complex to move into the lake tower suites! we signed the papers today and should be moving next weekend! were so excited. its twice as big as our current apartment. and instead of a loft its two stories! and its looks out onto tempe lake! 

to celebrate we went to chillis bar & grill for dinner. i got the chicken fajita pita with the sauce on the side. it was yummy. but he forgot that i ordered broccoli instead of the fries. so i quickly scooped all the fries over to the boyfriends plate so i wouldn't be tempted.

here is my broccoli :] 

now im going watch old i love lucy episode on dvd!!
