A Buffalo Weekend + A Successful Shopping Trip

Is it really Sunday evening already? This weekend flew by way too fast, like usual.  It was a great one though!

Friday after work I hit the road for a 3.5 hr road trip to Buffalo.  Friday night we munched on some pizza and hung out with Kris’ parents for a little before I passed out.  Getting up at 5am to pack and workout will do that to a girl.

Saturday morning we woke up, had some a healthy dose of coffeeand made the most delicious egg sandwiches.  I didn’t get a picture, but we put 1 fried egg, 1 sausage patty, and 1 slice of swiss cheese (the secret ingredient) on an English muffin.  So yummy.  The swiss was a delicious change for us, and I totally bought some when I stopped at the store today.

After the egg sandwiches we laced up our running shoes and went for a nice little run – off the grid style:

It was only about 20 degrees but it didn’t feel too bad out!  It was so peaceful running off the beaten path, plus there is that nice little sign telling you when you’ve reached “The End”.  What’s not to love?

After the run we got ready and headed out to the Hamburg Brewing Company for a few beers and appetizers.  Wow, the beer and the food was excellent and the atmosphere is so cozy.  We will definitely be going back.

Today we lounged around and worked on a crossword puzzle (I forgot how fun those are), then I hit the road a little early to beat this massive snow storm that is supposedly on the way.  Before I came home though I stopped at the grocery store for some food for the week.  I was a little worried because I walked into the  store sans list (usually a recipe for disaster).  But I only spent $50 on food for the week!  And I was super excited to find some fruits that I didn’t expect for a few more months..

Kiwis! The cute name and kiwi guy on the front had nothing a lot to do with the purchase of way too many kiwis….

Can you really put a price on that much potassium though?? They also had mangos! I love mangos, I hope this one is a little better than the ones I got at the end of the summer season

Other great finds included some peppermint herbal tea – my mom has made herbal mint tea after dinner the past couple times I’ve seen her and it’s so relaxing and warm and delicious.

The best chopped kale EVER – this stuff is chopped so fine and it’s my favorite for salads and smoothies:

About Time protein sample packs – (birthday cake & vanilla) lots of people seem to have great things to say about this brand.  I don’t get too into protein supplements, but I figured a one serving packet is good to have on hand for post-run smoothies or recipes that call for protein powder. (This is also a great way to see if you like it before you buy the big boy).

So I’d say it was a successful trip!  Also, I came home to both of my orchids in bloom, and Ollie’s bubble nest is growing rapidly!
