Oh Christmas Tree, Comedy Club Fun, Fridge Pics, New Wrap Obsession and New Euros

Friday was such an awesome night – I’m SO GLAD I took the time and relaxed, read and just vegged out. A girl needs a night in sometimes and I’m glad I did it! I ended up at 1,576 calories, 198 carbs, 43 fat grams and 101 protein grams. With a calorie burn of 502 I knew I’d wake up hungry! Here’s what I ate.

Saturday I woke up feeling fabulous – but HUNGRY! I was also CRAVING a wrap. I don’t make wraps often. I wanted avocado. I don’t eat it often either. It was ALL I could think about. So I threw some stuff on the counter and got to work. LOVED IT. So awesome, will be making it again!

My new obsession... Turkey Avocado wrap (tortilla, fat free mayo, turkey, swiss cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado and salt). Nutritional Information: 329 calories, 28 carbs, 15 fat grams and 22 protein grams.

Spread on mayo, and then swiss and turkey. Then top with avocado, tomato and mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt. Roll to the best of our ability and use toothpicks to help it stay together!

Then UPS showed up – new West Elm Euros for our bed have arrived! Thanks, Devie, for making me VERY happy – wonderful recommendation that we’re SO happy with!

New Euros! They're like linen burlap with buttons (the other side is like Chenille corduroy!)
Still deciding if this pillow looks cute or too big here....

After lunch I ran to the grocery store for next week’s meal plan, then unpacked it in the fridge- still loving it!

Ah.... behold the holder of all of my pre-prepared meals...
Hola, frozen stuff! Love the drawer at the top - that's where i'm going to keep frozen soups and sauces!

love, love love....

Then it was off to the gym for 4.25 miles (burned 252 calories). Yay! I also got to catch up with my mom – nice! I got back home and was about to start getting ready, when our plans for the SEC Championship with Mon/Andy got mixed up and fell through. So I hopped in the shower and we ended up going to Matt/Nina’s to watch the game – so good to see his new condo – 21st floor, it’s official, I don’t think I could live that high up. It’s cold! Anywho, we headed to Meehan’s for a few drinks, War Damn Tebo didn't work out, then we went to a comedy club, Punchline, to see Pablo Francisco – it was HILARIOUS! Good times! We got home and guess what? I wanted ANOTHER wrap. It was like all I could think about! Haha I ended up at 2,154 calories, 209 carbs, 61 fat grams and 111 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Sunday I slept in. It felt glorious. I woke up around 10:30 and felt like I’d had the perfect amount of sleep. I headed downstairs and got to work in the kitchen making:

4 servings of chili

4 servings of beef enchilada casserole

6 servings of bacon/egg/cheese muffins

4 servings of Greek feta chicken

4 servings of Southwest Chicken & White Bean Soup

4 servings of Chicken in Tomato Sauce

I was on fire – love having stuff in the oven, stuff on the slow cooker and then prepping another recipe – it went SO smooth! Before I knew it it was time to get ready to go visit Jason and Crystal and their new baby Grady! We got ready, got Reuben ready and headed out. So good to see them! Their baby is a doll – beautiful eyes, adorable smile and very chill/happy personality. The nursery looked awesome and they just seemed so happy! We also got to see their bestie Chris and catch up with him, had yummy taco soup, a couple of glasses of wine and lots of great conversation. It was such a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon! We headed home around 6, picking up Christmas lights on the way and new batteries for my food scale! Then it was time for fun – Christmas music while decorating the tree – yay! Pictures never do tree's justice in my humble opinion, but here’s ours. I love it. :)

Please note: tomorrow i'm getting a topper! And Austin is digging out an extension cord so the lights don't string over like that! Tomorrow i'm also getting stocking holders for the mantle - eeee! So exciting!

Love how 'no flash' makes it all old-timey
Reuben wasn't enthused....
A closer shot!

For dinner I had yet another wrap (OMG - it's like nothing else matters!), then it was time for FlashForward – love. I’m in bed now about to hit the hay! Today I ended up at 1,501 calories, 159 carbs, 49 fat grams and 65 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. So ready for tomorrow – I’m off work again – WOO!! Hope you all had great weekends!!

What’s your favorite thing about Christmas time? Mine is definitely putting up the tree!! And seeing family of course!!

Do you ever go to comedy clubs? We used to go a couple of times a year in Birmingham but haven’t been in a while. I forgot how much I enjoyed them!!

I like the big pillows. I also LOVE avocado! I seriously could it eat on everything.

I love presents at Christmas :) I also love giving presents.

I've been to a comedy club a couple of times. My favorite was Harlin Williams.

Love the new fridge! Ours is exactly like it, but it comes in 1999 white.

My favorite thing about Christmas would have to be getting together with friends and family and baking awesome cookies.

I am so jealous of your refrigerator. We're going to buy one in the next 2 years or so. That is exactly what I want.

I may be jealous of your frig but that headboard is beautiful! Is it a door? Where did you get it?

I want a new fridge like that! Maybe one day. Jason would really like that wrap that you made. I'll give him the recipe.

I know this is kind of weird, but I really do not like stand up comedy.

Man, your crib is classy, lady!

And good job on the productive weekend, you cooking fiend!

And finally, I love the tree. It looks like pupper does too. :)

Love it! It would make it really easy to be organised if you have that much room for pre-prepared meals.

Your tree looks sensational!
