Weekend Scenes 9/23/13

I just want a good four days of nothing. And a clean house. And meals where the calories don't count. Is that so much to ask? Yea, sadly that is what I thought.

So, anyways the week that was-- it was another busy one. Jason and I actually had an impromptu date night last Wednesday and caught our last Tampa Rays home game for the season {unless they win the wild card}.

But first we started with a little Mexican for dinner. Lime Fresh Mexican is a decent spot. In all honesty, Chipotle will always be my number one, but I do like Lime Fresh's service, much more and they have great promotions Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Or cutely named "WTF". On these days, they offer $2 tacos and 2-for-1 drinks {beer, sangria, and margaritas}. While Jason and I took advantage of the 2-for-1 beers, I opted for their lite quesadilla; Two whole wheat tortillas filled with chicken, organic fat-free refried beans and melted jack and cheddar cheese. So the only real "cheat" on my meal was a beer. The lite quesadilla was very filling! Jason ordered the steak 'n' cheese taco; A crispy corn taco shell stuffed with steak, sautéed onions and peppers, homemade queso and topped with pico de gallo. We got a massive dinner for under $20! They have an impressive salsa bar, as well. Have you been to Lime Fresh?

Friday night after an awesome dinner at Charley's Steakhouse. Jason and Oskar crashed on the couch, post glutton fest. We live the cra-zay life at Casa de Crews, huh?

Melts my insides <3 td="">
On the recommendation of many, I finally ordered It Starts With Food. I plan to share this past month's weight loss progress soon, but will say I have ate a lot less processed and have seen some small, but drastic results in a short time. I can't wait to dive into this book and gain more knowledge.

I'm going to my first blog conference, Blog Fete, this coming weekend, and both my business cards from Moo, and my cute case to carry said cards in, came this week! Card design, here.

Sunday, I was invited to Crystal's for a Benefit Real Lash Party. As guests, we received a sample of Benefit's Real Lash mascara, lip tint, and lip gloss. We hung out, munched on tasty treats, and applied our goodies. It was a fun way to break up what would have been an otherwise monotonous Sunday of cleaning, and meal planning for the week. Thanks for the invite, and goodies, Crystal!

I'm tired just writing this. How was your weekend?!

Linking up with Sami.

  1. I really want four days of nothing where I don't have to leave my house and can clean it, purge it, organize it, and stock its freezers. Ok? Ok.

  2. We did the same things Wed and of course Sunday :)

    We had Lime Fresh do a taco bar at the Margarita Fest VIP tent and their tacos were NASTY. I know it was not the best representation of their food probably, but it was enough to make us not want to go there.

    Thanks for coming Sunday!! I'm jealous you are going to Blog Fete. Have a great (quick) week. <3

  3. Yes, four days of doing nothing sounds soooooo awesome. I would take that over a trip somewhere nice and pretty where my schedule would be booked all day with activities.
    Your cards look great!

  4. That Mexican food looks soooo good and so sad I missed the party yesterday looks like fun! :-(
