WIAW- Vegas edition!

Greetings from Vegas!

I have been living the hotel life for the last few days while on a work trip. It’s been a lot of fun, but it definitely required a lot of planning to make sure I would have food for the week. I may write a separate post about the planning and what I did for the whole week. For now, I want to share what I had today. The event provides food for part of the week, and they have been amazing with allergies.

Breakfast: I brought my own nectarine and avocado, which I added to the bacon and fruit salad provided (both of which were labelled as safe for me).

Lunch: barbecue chicken and salad. I got to be the first person to eat off the buffet to make sure nothing was cross contaminated.

Dinner: I have been eating in my room every night, and enjoying relaxing in front of the television. Today I had a can of tuna, tomatoes, and avocado with rice chips.

Between meals I snacked on some pumpkin seeds, and, of course, coffee 😊

Weekend Highlights: Rotisserie Chicken and a NEW IPAD!

I’m running a little behind getting my “Weekend Highlights” post up, but it is because I spent my time being a good girlfriend and helping to grade some tests (yay organic chemistry!)

I also normally have 3 highlights for my weekend, but this time, one of my highlights is so big, I think I can get away with just 2. The first one is this amazing dinner that my girlfriend put together from a Costco rotisserie chicken.

And the second highlight…I GOT A NEW IPAD! And I am ridiculously excited about it. I got my first ipad as a graduation present when I finished my PhD, and it was not terribly old, but Apple is no longer supporting software updates for it so my apps were crashing constantly 😦 However, my new one is awesome! I got a keyboard! It’s so shiny and pretty! πŸ™‚

WIAW – March 13

Today’s eats:

For breakfast I had some potatoes that we baked last night topped with a sample of crockpot chili, chicken, and a little bacon. Instead of coffee, I took a B-vitamin supplement.

I forgot to take a picture of my lunch! I had a big bowl of crockpot chili over some potatoes.

I had horrible sugar issues this afternoon. For a snack I ended up with orange juice and a Kind bar.

Weekend Highlights – Muse!, Rice!, and Opinionated Orange Juice

This weekend started out great with the Muse concert! It was an amazing concert. I ended up having to take a benadryl half-way through the show, thanks to the jerks who decided to smoke pot inside the venue.

Rice! My grain-day treat this weekend was this fabulous rice, chicken, and tomato dish made by my girlfriend. Yum πŸ™‚

Opinionated Orange Juice. I bought the delicious combo pictured below while at the store on Saturday, and as soon as I grabbed it, I was offered the opportunity to take a survey and get a $10 gift card. So…I decided to give it a try. The lady conducting the survey was very nice, but I couldn’t provide her with any nice words about the product she was getting opinions on: low calorie orange juice. I made it very clear that I thought the product was disgusting and that I would never consider buying it. Sorry not sorry…ew sucralose.

This stuff is delicious. It is not sucralose swill.
