As The Ziti Turns

I’m not sure what happened with the weather here, but it is nice outside right now! There are still tons of clouds in the distance, so I’m they just pass on through. We have had so much rain lately, and I would really like to be able to run when I get home.

I was really happy when I got to work this morning because this was waiting for me in my fridge!


This is called “The Favorite” and is from a local coffee shop here. I bought it yesterday at lunch but then was too warm in the office to drink it! No problem – I had it this morning, and it was perfect. This was a fat free latte made with sugar free white chocolate and caramel syrups. For some reason, most sugar free things do not agree with me, but I have no problems with the sf coffee syrups.

Work went along like normal this morning and I was ready for lunch around 11:30 – I was just counting down the minutes until Nick got over here to eat.

I had a serving of the baked ziti on top of another cup or so of spinach


And yes, I apparently ate it sideways. This picture comes up right when I open it on the computer, but then shows up like this? Oh well – you get the drift. There was a ton more spinach in the bottom of the dish that got a little wilted when I heated this up. Yum!

I also had the last of the green/yellow beans


And am now chomping on this apple


I am going to miss this ziti once it’s gone! I think there’s only 1-2 servings left, so you won’t have to see it too many more times  🙂  It was such a great recipe.

T minus 12 hours until our 5 year wedding anniversary! I am beyond excited and cannot believe it’s been 5 years. I’m going to have a fun post tomorrow, so look out!

One of the sweetest/coolest things Nick has done for me:

When I was in my junior year of college, Nick was already back in Virginia and I was still in Arkansas at school. It was long distance the entire 8 months we were engaged and planning our wedding. Needless to say, we talked on the phone – a lot. I was having a really hard year that year at school, and being away from him and my family while trying to plan the wedding was tough.

He sent me a package one time while I was at school that was an entire box of the Hershey’s Cookies’n’Mint bars! They are my favorite candy bar and I’m so sad they don’t make them anymore. I guess they were out again a few years ago for a limited time and he sent me an entire box. 🙂  He knows the way to my heart is through chocolate, usually.

What’s the most fun gift you’ve ever received?
