Yum

Today was the official last day of nannying and the official last day of my group fitness classes at Butler, and I must say that I couldn’t have asked for a better day!

We started off the day with an early lunch to Qdoba. When I was asking the kids about what things they wanted to do at the beginning of the summer, Qdoba was brought up many times as a favorite lunch spot they went to with their nanny last summer.  When I asked the kids what they wanted to do their last week of summer, we realized that we had not yet been to Qdoba together once the entire summer!  We decided that as a treat on our last day we would have lunch at Qdoba.

Because Jeremy had a meeting at school at 11am, and they each had a French lesson at 1pm we had to eat lunch before Jeremy’s meeting.  We arrived so early that Qdoba was still serving breakfast, so while we waited Jeremy showed the worker card tricks.

When it was lunch time, I opted for a naked burrito with no rice, pinto beans, grilled veggies, lettuce, a little cheese, pico de gallo, and spicy salsa.  It was so yummy!

After Jeremy’s meeting we spent the day playing the board game Life and doing French lessons…well they were doing French lessons, I made the grocery list (more on that later 😉 )

We then loaded up in the car once more and headed to one of my favorite fro-yo places…Red Mango.  Jeremy and Sarah had never been there before, but quickly fell in love once they tasted their treats!!

  • pinch of xanthum gum
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 packets of splenda

It's not easy being green...

I guess dinner kind of looked like Barney! Oops!!
Brian and I are headed to Nashville this weekend for a friend’s wedding.  It should be really fun because there are so many friends going, but I still have to pack!  Good night!!!
