Out of Town Guests, Secret Bar, Shopping, More Vegas Photogs

Hey! I'm finally back to regular blogging - YESSSS! This is my catch-up post beginning with a few more pics from Vegas!

View from Mandalay Bay's House of Blues Foundation Room - LOVED it!

Taken from the cab - not bad!
Me outside the Mandalay before we left!

Time to get home - bye bye Vegas!


Friday
  • Work... and lots of it! White chicken chili for lunch - nom nom nom.
  • 3.5-mile walk at lunch (burned 172 calories in 53 minutes). C25K after work - 2.5 miles (burned 151 calories in 32 minutes). Total mileage/burn: 6 miles; 323 calories.
  • Headed home, made a grown up grilled cheese, and got ready - Teresa and Forrest were coming in town from Auburn with their puppers Cassie and Daisy!
  • The 4 of us played pool, caught up, played Buzz Word and had a great night! The pups had fun, too!
  • I ended up at 1,796 calories, 184 carbs, 58 fat grams and 91 protein grams. Here's what I ate and drank!
Saturday
  • I woke up early and me and Teresa headed over to my sister Devon's in Decatur for a boutique sale (yes - another one!)! Great sale - got one top for $12! Then we had yummy pizza/salad at Fellini's.
  • Nap time! Then I worked on my next video for a bit - a montage of January!
  • Then up and out to Buckhead. Hit up Tavern 99, Prohibition, EA and Churchill's. Excited to try out Prohibition - you have to figure out the code then go up to a phone booth and put it in this antique phone... then if you get the code right the back of the phone booth opens into a bar. Rando! It was overrated fo sho but fun to try something new!
  • I ended up at 1,821 calories, 153 carbs, 36 fat grams and 80 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. Turns out I didn't eat enough... but definitely drank enough!
The group! (late night pic fo sho)

So far... mini walk with Reuben, marathon cooking, mini Vampire Diaries marathon, laundry, and a trip to Office Max for a new printer/scanner/copier - woo! Hopefully this week I can post:
  • a pic of my new shirt!
  • my new January video!
  • our dining room project!
  • a new playlist!
  • a new recipe!
  • two book reviews - Lipstick Jungle and Shopaholic & Baby!
Backtracking:

Finally sat down and recorded everything from this week. Most are estimates as I ate out a lot, but I did keep track of everything I ate on my iPhone notes!

Monday: 2,051 calories, 274 carbs, 30 fat grams and 75 protein grams. Eats. No Exercise.

Your pics make Vegas look pretty fun. It has never really appealed to me (because I'm not fun), but it does look pretty glamorous!
