Scott and I met up downstairs for a quick spin on the bike before lunch today. I rode for an hour, and worked up quite the sweat! I finished my workout with a couple sets of pushups and planks.
Lunch was something to cool us down. . . smoothies!
Mine was 2% plain chobani yogurt with frozen mixed berries, splash of milk and drizzle of honey.
I topped it with granola, banana chips and chia seeds.
It wasn’t as good as yesterday. I think the 2% pineapple chobani (that I used yesterday) has just a little more sweetness and creaminess in it to make it more smooth and creamy.
Abby enjoyed the yogurt too!
We were still hungry after our smoothies, so I popped up Kettle corn – smart pop popcorn.
After lunch, we packed our bags for our overnight trip to the cities. And headed out. . .
On the way to the cities, we stopped in Le Sueur (where I will be working come September) to check out the town.
We stopped by the Mayo house, home of the Mayo brothers who founded the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
Abby didn’t think it was very impressive. .. (hint: it involves #2).
We also went and checked out the progress on the new clinic building that I will be working in.
Scott liked explaining some of the elements to me!
Then, we got to my parent’s house and Laura and I went out for date night!
Scott was having dinner with all of his guy friends, so I invited Laura out!
And we went to Old Country Buffet (OCB!). . . Scott doesn’t like OCB at all, so whenever I get to go to dinner with Laura, one of the places I always offer as an option is OCB – because she loves their mac and cheese! When we went there as kids, that is seriously all she ate!
I like going with Laura because she doesn’t mess around. See, she got a corn dog with her salad plate!
I started with some salad and a dinner roll.
And they have ICEE’s!
My second plate: I checked out the corn dog that Laura raved about – totally the best part of dinner! Some orange chicken, fried chicken and another awesome dinner roll.
My final plate: dessert
The best part: the chocolate cream pie and the piece of cookie pie that is hiding. . . pretty much the only two things that got eaten on this plate!
After we were both full. . . I convinced her to take me to Super Target so I could get more. . .
I seriously have a problem. . .
Then, we headed back to my parent’s house for coloring Easter eggs with Dad. Mom just left today for an all girls trip to St. Martin! So, we are putting off our ‘official’ Easter celebration until she comes back. . . but still decided we should color eggs!
The set up. . .
Coloring in progress. . .
My egg for Scott: “District #7 Traffic Engineer”
One of my favorites. . .
Abby cleaning out a leftover container from my sister making a dip to take to a work potluck tonight. . .
Laura with her RN egg – she just passed her nursing exam!!!!
Me with one of my eggs and a goofy look. . .
The egg my Dad made for Scott: “Merge”
The finished product!
Now, the best part is making egg salad or eating them and seeing all the colors on the whites!
Better get to bed, church is going to come early tomorrow! Hope you had a great Saturday. . . ‘night.
