I'm glad your day turned around and was a little better than this morning. Thank YOU for always supporting me when times are rough. You're like a knight in shining armor as well.

Love lots :):)

your dads a hunk :)

i havent tried rachel's cottage cheese..but i have tried a few other kinds of 'speciality cottage cheese'..and NOTHING compares to good ol' regular cottage cheese. i hate how alot of people think its really gross..i think its amazing!..although i dont like to think about what it really is lol.

your dinner looks DELICIOUS!!

dumb question..where do you live at or near in jersey? i used to live there!

hmm..more nightly snack ideas.. how about some cheeze its or peanut butter crackers? or some yogurt covered raisins (MY FAVE!) or some trail mix!

emily. said...

So glad that your day got better!

Mmm, the new White Chocolate Macadamia flavor of Luna bar is so good. I heated one up in the microwave- too delicious!

Puffins + strawberries = tasty, tasty! <3 I've heard that there's cinnamon puffins out there in the great, big world.

Zumba sounds really cool.Have a great night! :)

Nutritious is Delicious said...

Can I just say how cute your background is!?!!!!

And all of your eats look scrumptious!

Oh and I am studying for Food Science and It's hard..I hope I do well too! lol Thanks!

Also, Suggestions for nighttime snacks......Maybe bake some healthified cookies/muffins for a sweet ending to your night or try doing something with peanut butter for a more satiating snack.....or yogurt (but it looks like you enjoy that during the day! lol)......just a few suggestions!

Now I need to get studying some morre!! :D

i was in central-ish jersey, in burlington county...but ive definately heard of bergen county. i think we may have played them in sports or something lol.

cant wait to hear about your evening snack :)

*huggle*
I'm so sorry about your rough day, chica. Sometimes, triggers lurk in the most unsuspecting places.
Nasty little buggers.

Gah. I SWEAR we live in parallel universes. One of my friends shoved a cookie at me this morning, giving me no op to turn it down.

ED had a tantrum. It was awful.
But, eventually, I shut him down.
Because, honestly:
1) Cookies are yUm.
2) ED is a poopster.
3) Cookies are yUm.

And the guilt isn't worth it.

Anywho..
Oooh. Your bloggy look so perty. Me likeyy.
=]

Haha! And I was just about to lament the tragedy of Erin not being able to find PB puffins!
Herm. I like to eat them with..uhm...moah PB.
And strawbs.
And it just dudn't get any bettah than that.
*nod*

Wow. Your dad looks SOOPER KEWL.
I can see where it comes from, now. =D

Oh! And for the ULTIMATE snacky ideas:
http://philabundanceoflife.wordpress.com/2009/03/06/outside-the-bar-snack-ideas/

Seriously. It's like the snack bible. Amen.

Oh babaganoush. I luff ya! Hope you're having a beauteous evening. <3

P.S. Aw. Your comments always leave a goofy smile on my face, no matter how craptastic I feel. =]

As for being hungry/afraid of putting on weight if you eat more...mebbe try one extra little snack a day?
Your metab is prolly going VROOM, in which case, though you might still be maintaining now, you'd likely see a loss in the future.
But it's all up to you, 'course! I have faith in ya, chica. ;]
<3

DADDY PANTS!! Hahaha I love that pic! Your food outdoes mine today :( The tum's been actin' up and throwing me off. YOU'RE AMAZING for getting through a roush morning so beautifully. I'm sorry you had some issues with the cookie, but really, as I've said, it's no biggie!

Is the plane ride tomorrow??? That makes me anxious. I'll only feel okay once I know you've landed. Furreal. Traveling makes me weary. I don't want anything to happen to my lil sistuh. Have a good night sugarplum! Luv you long time!

Burp and Slurp~! said...

cucumber dill? that's so weird! It might be good as a dip for veggies though? or a spread in pita?

HAPPY FRIDAY LOVE!

Kiki said...

Erin! Your dad is really cute haha. Much cooler than mine!

Glad your day turned around. Puffins puffins puffins!!! The way I like to eat them most is just straight up. But it's also good in yogurt with fruit, on top of oatmeal, and in cottage cheese with more PB!!

Your dinner sounds so good! Happy Friday! Much love
