Friday Fiesta

Thanks for your great advice about ways to outsmart the snooze button!! I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who has a snooze addiction! 🙂

Today was a super-productive day at work. We started with our monthly unit meeting and we accomplished alot. It reminded me how lucky I am to work with such an intelligent and creative group of women. We met at Starbucks and I had a grande coffee with cream…nothing fancy today. Back at my desk at the wellness center, lunch was leftover lasagna from last night…stay tuned – I’ll add my lasagna recipe to my Favorite Recipes page ASAP. Thanks for asking!


After lunch, I went to the hospital for the afternoon- I saw a diabetes nutrition consult, had another meeting…and had a snack. Fage total with honey- this is so good- almost cheesecake-like….


After work, I stopped by Sephora – it is totally one of my favorite stores ever! I try not to go there too much because I could easily spend way too much money! I’m not really a clothes shopper, but give me a shop full of skincare, makeup, and fragrance…I’m in heaven. I was searching for a new fragrance…I love Philosophy Amazing Grace, but I wanted something different, so I tried a new Philosophy fragrance, Unconditional Love – love it!! When I got home, I went for a nice walk around the neighborhood and then Anthony and I tried a new Mexican place for dinner – yes- we do eat Mexican once a week (or more some weeks). We started with chips, salsa, and guacamole…pretty good, but not as good as our favorite, La Fiesta.


And, I had a vegetarian quesadilla for my entree….it contained beans, peppers, onions, mushrooms, zucchini, and cheese…very good.


I firmly believe that Mexican food can be part of a healthy, balanced diet…but making good choices and portion control is key. I left most of the rice and 1/4 of the quesadilla on my plate and was satisfied, but not stuffed.

Now, Stacy and Clinton are calling my name…time for my weekly What Not to Wear slumber party with my sweet husband!!

I’m so excited – two very special guests are coming to visit tomorrow!! Do you have big plans for the weekend?

  1. oooh who are the guests? 🙂 I hope you have a good time!!!

    We have absolutely NOTHING going on this weekend and I could not be happier about it! Catching up on laundry and house work from being gone for a week!

    Sounds like a great productive day at work. You have such a rewarding job. It’s got to feel good knowing you’re changing people’s lives like you do!

    Um… my problem is that I love to shop for clothes AND make up! I could drop TOO much money in Sephora… love, love, love that place!

    Have a great night, Angie!

  2. I love all of the Philosophy scents, but Grace is probably my favorite. I exclusively get my perfume from the teeny ($10-20) tubes near the registers at Sephora.

  3. i heart sephora. when i lived in nyc i used to wait to put on my makeup there before auditions. the salespeople learned to leave me alone.

    Great dinner. Satisfied, not stuffed – thanks for the reminder.
    Have a great weekend with your guests! 😀
    Weekend’s quite full for me – a BBQ, a festival down the street, Saturday night at friends’ place, and a Japanese wedding(!).

  5. I completely agree about MExican food. It can be included, just don’t eat all the food (tons) they set in front of you! In fact, beans are one of the healthiest foods ever!
    Thanks for the fragrance recommendation, I really need new perfume.
    Have a great day!

  6. The quesadilla looks delicious, 🙂 I have plans for a night out with friends this weekend and can’t wait, I haven’t been out in ages with so much work on.

  7. Hi Angie! I’m about to start my diabetes rotation at my dietetic internship. Do you have any advice for nutrition education in the diabetic population? 🙂

  8. I am obsessed with perfumes! I honestly have like 10 — and ill be honest, only use one of them! I don’t know what it is that lures me in! like, really? is there ever a time where i’m going to want to smell like a “waffle cone”? doubtful – but i totally have that fragrance.
