Weekend Snapshots January 10-12, 2014

Hi everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was fabulous and too short, as usual!

On Friday, Chris and I went to see American Hustle with our friends Caley and Robbie. Before the movie, I threw together a quick green pepper, ham, and cheese fritata for dinner. It hit the spot!!

I really enjoyed American Hustle and I was happy that Jennifer Lawrence provided some much needed comic relief!! I was happy to see her win a Golden Globe for the role on Sunday!

20140112-222506.jpgOn Saturday, I was up early for a yoga date with my friend Lauren. Before yoga I had a superfood breakfast! Nonfat greek yogurt mixed with natural peanut butter, chia seeds, and goji berries. This was a delicious breakfast and kept me full through most of the afternoon!

After breakfast, I headed to Yoga District to meet Lauren. We both really like Hannah G’s flow yoga with a power focus. The class was great again this Saturday. Thanks to Lauren’s suggestion and confidence along with the help of the instructor I was able to do my first headstand!!

20140112-222513.jpgAfter yoga, Chris and I did some cleaning and I did some school work. A little later I defrosted some low carb chicken and vegetable soup my mom made. Chris and I both love this soup and do not miss the noodles/rice component at all!

20140112-222520.jpgOn Saturday night I had a dinner date with Lauren! It had been far too long since we had a girls night!

We had dinner at El Centro in Georgetown and started off with spicy mango margaritas. They were the perfect mix of sweet and spicy!

20140112-222530.jpgWe started our meal off with guacamole, which was made tableside. It was delicious!

20140112-222542.jpgLauren and I decided to split two entrees. First up – chicken enchiladas. These were great, but I did like the green sauce better than the red.

20140112-222554.jpgWe also split the mahi mahi tacos, which were really good as well!! We were both stuffed and couldn’t finish off the last taco!! I will definitely return to El Centro!

After dinner, we chatted and enjoyed El Centro’s fun atmosphere before meeting up with some friends at Mr. Smith’s, a piano bar on M St.

20140112-222602.jpgI spent Sunday doing some work and watching football with Chris. We enjoyed Chipotle for a late lunch – chicken burrito bowl for me!

20140112-222609.jpgFor Sunday night dinner, Chris and I enjoyed a mushroom and green pepper pizza on whole wheat crust from Trader Joes. The crust was really dense and chewy, it was also only $1.99, I need to go back and get more!

We watched the Golden Globes and Downton Abbey over dinner. I was shocked at the plot twist for Anna!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
