Due to traveling on Friday, I didn’t get around to posting. I know it seems like I keep missing a day here and there, and I apologize, but things are just a little busy. I promise though to always keep you posted on what’s happening, even if it takes me an extra day or two to post.
Thursday was my last day in town before heading home to Pittsburgh. It was a very bizzare day that started off on the right foot with a healthy breakfast and prepping my shakeology for my morning snack.
Then the craziness began. I went to take the elevator to the roof to get to my car and the elevator wasn’t working. The light would be lit for a split second and then it went off. So, I walked the stairs. There aren’t many, and I didn’t mind, but I didn’t realize this was just the beginning.
That day we were to deliver pizzas to 4 grocery stores in the area, as well as on up in Dallas. They were having a big meeting about how our product would be in stores and we thought it would be nice for people to try the pizzas before they hit shelves. I’m driving along and my tire light comes up. REALLY?!?! Thankfully it was just low pressure, but I was nervous that I’d have a flat tire.
I got to my destination to make the pizzas and the person’s whose house I was at had to leave immediately because of a personal emergency. I was left alone to cook the pizzas and was so worried something was going to go wrong. Thankfully the pizzas cooked nicely (although I thought two of them were going to burn the oven was so powerful). After I cooked the pizzas I immediately went to the store to drop them off….except they didn’t know I was coming nor did they know about a noon meeting. WHAT? I ended up talking to the store manager explaining about who we were and why we were dropping off the pizzas. I left there and thought to myself, “IT IS ONLY NOON!” I was really hoping the day would get better…. Thankfully it didn’t get weirder. If I didn’t know better I would have thought there was a full moon that night.
That night when I was driving I saw a rainbow in the sky…. there was no rain! If you look right under the lamp post you should be able to see it faintly.
Pretty cool! That night I made dinner for me and the boy. On the menu: Tilapia with Purple Potato Crust and Chive Rosemary Oil, side of zucchini, squash and purple potatoes, and a side salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette. It was YUMMY!
Next time I make it I am going to cook this potato side up for 10 minutes and then under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to brown the potatoes. The instructions said to bake potato side down, but that didn’t work out so well when serving.
Friday I spent traveling home to Pittsburgh, hanging with my mom and her friend, and having sushi with dad for dinner. We had so much sushi, and it was SO good. Worth EVERY bite!
Saturday was all about my sister Erin. It was the day of her wedding shower. Family friend’s were throwing it on her behalf. It couldn’t have been a nicer day in Pittsburgh. Everything turned out amazing!

Sunday was brunch at the family restaurant, more time with family then off to the airport to head back to Austin. All in all it has been a solid 4 days! Glad nothing bad happened on Thursday among all the craziness, and grateful for a beautiful weekend with my family (only sorry my brother couldn’t make it).
Question: How was your weekend?
