All Smiles Friday!

Happy Friday! Can’t believe it is already Friday…but hey I will roll with it!! The morning has been good…I rocked out a great 11 mile run and then did some major stretching on the foam roller! My hamstrings are still so tight from my weight workout with Keith on Tuesday! But good sore! I like having strong legs because it makes me feel powerful! πŸ™‚ Yeah BABY!!
For dinner last night, Keith wanted seabass, sweet potatoes, and asparagus. YUM…all sounds good. But for some reason I just wasn’t feeling it! I don’t know what my deal is this week but I have just been on an entire different food wave length than my husband! I was craving a BIG OLE SALAD (bird food…Keith calls it). So I made my myself one ginormous salad. It was: fresh spinach, zucchini, apple, tomatoes, and chicken breast sliced on top! Oh and the dressing is honey mustard!! It made my tummy very happy:

Salad Goodness

Oh and here’s Keith’ meal…I don’t want him to feel left out!! πŸ™‚Β

Hopefully tonight we will be on the same dinner wavelength and can enjoy the same thing! haha!Β

  1. Aw I love that smiling list! πŸ™‚

    Sometimes we make different meals, it just depends. πŸ™‚

  2. We hardly ever have separate meals…but that’s usually just because we’re lazy πŸ™‚

    Love the reasons to smile!! πŸ˜€

  3. We have seperate meals a few times a week, but it’s fun cooking together.

  4. I’d have a hard time choosing between the two meals, they both look great!

  5. Two true stories:
    1. TCL and I never eat the same thing… ever. Unless we make pizza together, and even then it’s each our own half.
    2. My dad always smiles in the car because it makes him feel good. I freaking love my dad!

    Today I’m smiling because I just thought about my mom and dad and how great they are.

  6. I’m smiling about wearing red for GoRed day!! πŸ™‚

  7. I like the smile list too! The pic of the cat is adorable! I cook for the fam, so I make one meal for dinner and folks and eat it or not (but I always take into consideration likes and dislikes of everyone and try to accommodate as best I can.) There’s usually something for everyone and they are happy. Breakfast and lunch are a different story – everyone usually has something a little different.

  8. We do have separate meals a few nights a week. My BF is a serious meat and potatoes guy and I can’t do that every night! I usually make something we can share, like sides of rice or quinoa or something…

  9. That asparagus look great!

    Love the smiley list πŸ™‚

  10. That kitty smiling is funny even though I’m not a fan of cats at all. The You Tube video of the dancing Matt always makes me smile so much it hurts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY

  11. mmmm…. salad! (still obsessed)

    And I’m smiling as I do my Friday dance!!!!

  12. We eat different meals sometimes. He doesn’t get lunch a lot, so he needs a much bigger dinner than I want. It all depends on his day or what we’re craving. We do eat together everynight, though, even if it’s different food.

  13. I’m smiling because it’s Friday!! That’s all I need πŸ™‚

  25. One of my new years resolutions was to smile more. I totally think I look cuter when I smile πŸ™‚ haha

  26. Andrew and I are almost always eating separate meals during the week. I am just way too hungry after I workout to wait for him when he gets home from work. But this weekend we have meals planned out that we will both be eating together and I’m looking forward to them!! πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday, Kelly!! Fridays always make me SMILE!! πŸ™‚

  27. Jason works weird hours so he’s not always home around dinner time. When I do cook an actual recipe, he eats it too, but some nights we have more of a “fend for yourself” dinner which usually involves some sort of tortilla pizza for me.

    Friday are always something to smile about!

  28. if me and my boyfriend get married-we are def gona be eating most meals seperate!! haha..the things you do for love!!
    your meal looks great!
    i LOVE being sore too! makes me feel strong!

  29. Asparagus and sweet potatoes sounds like an amazing dinner! salad, not so much my thing lol. My boyfriend and I usually eat different things. To give you an idea, when we go to ihop for breakfast, I get pancakes, eggs and the whole breakfast set up while he gets a cheeseburger and fries. That doesn’t change at home either lol.

  30. Be happy it is just you and Keith to cook 2 meals for. I cook 3, yep 3 seperate meals every single day. I do mostly vegan, husband does mostly non-vegan, all meat, and 7 yr old daughter, somewhere in between. Throw in my and Bella’s celiac and numerous allergies….sigh…. but after 8 yrs of marriage, and 7 being a Mom, I am “used” to it! We are going to Vegas next week for a week. The first stop before hitting our hotel you ask? No, not a casino ( Bella will be with us). The Whole Foods down the street from our hotel. The limo company I think thought I was kidding. My poor husband just rolls with it. Smart man!
