Lunch Date and Popcorn

I got out of class a little early today and had time to meet up with Ben for lunch before I had to get to work.IMG_0764 

We’ve been so busy with fixing up the house and me starting school. It was nice to just have a relaxing lunch together and hang out.IMG_0763

My lunch – I ordered the salmon plate. It came with miso soupIMG_0759

and salmon of course!IMG_0760

Instead of tempura I opted for steamed veggies. It was the least I could do after this morning’s scone!


I had some snacks at work:


SB bar

cheese stick

And I kept dinner light – broccoli and marinara topped with parm


But truth be told, dinner was light so my snack could be heavy – a bag of popcorn, because it tastes best if you hog the whole thing.IMG_0770

Monica and Ben’s Comments of the Day:

While on a walk before dinner Ben wanted me to slow down. He wanted a relaxing walk. I wanted a power walk.

Ben: “Slow down when you walk, it’s good for the soul.”

Monica: “But, walking fast is good for your ass.”

Ben: “I’d rather have a cute soul…”

    I wish I could eat popcorn! Soo tasty, yet it tears up my insides. Not fun to be around me when I’m in pain!

    That is so cute of Ben, totally sounds like something my husband would say!

    I like to eat the whole bag too. I feel like you really can’t save it b/c cold popcorn just isn’t good. This is why I have to buy the small bags. I love yours and Ben’s conversations. I wish I would write mine and Brad’s down. They’re similarly silly. He actually has recorded several that he likes to call “the Kelly parables”.

    Haha, sounds like you guys had a great time at your lunch date.
    Also, I just wanted to comment that since you dyed your hair blonde you totally look like Katherine Heigl (from Grey’s Anatomy).

    That salmon plate looks absolutely amazing. I LOVE SALMON. Unfortunately I pretty much never have it :(. Also, great idea, the broccoli with marinara and parmesan!!! So simple, but looks delicious! I think I’ll try that tonight :).
