There's No Place Like Home!

I won't lie bloggies - it felt very good to be home. I slept in really late, more or less had control over what I ate, and I got to snuggle into my own bed at night.

When I got home on Saturday night I was just beat. As a result I managed to seriously sleep in on Sunday morning. Left to my own devices I could have easily slept most of the day away. Eventually I did wake up but by then it was too late for breakfast! lol :oP

Given that we had a lot of errands to run we just headed out the door and decided to eat out. The fiance was all excited to head to a local Mexican Cantina. I didn't put up a fight (still sleepy) and ended up with this on my plate:

A taco salad, without the dressing, and with the shell left behind once I was done. So really it was just lettuce with a bit of cheese, roasted peppers, and about 1/3 of a chicken breast. I was hungry really soon thereafter! We were so busy running around I didn't have time to eat again until I snacked on a Roger's Chocolate while I cooked up dinner. YUM!

I brought these chocolates back from Vancouver. The fiance was absolutely thrilled to see the box when I got back home. You see Roger's Chocolate is originally from Victoria. So in essence I was bringing a bit of home to him.

In fact the fiance was SO excited he asked me to take a picture of his brittle (above) to share with you on the blog! lol :oP Cute fiance!

Dinner was yet another big salad. This time loaded down with pear vinaigrette, mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, and a big ol' steak!!!!

The steak was oh so good!!! lol What can I say? I'm thoroughly a meatatarian (;o)) and last week I barely had any protein. What better way to make up for a lack of protein goodness than with a yummy steak salad!

So those were my Sunday eats (except for a night time banana - not picture)! Oh and guess what was waiting for me when I got back from my work trip?

Goodies from Sephora - yaaaaaaaaaaayyy!!!!!!!!!!!! :o) Now if you excuse me I have to go get ready for work and test drive some of those wonderful products!

See you tonight bloggies!

Mmmm steak. Can't go wrong with a good steak every once in a while.

And I will have to check Sephora out once they open their new location at the mall near the 'rents.

Mmm, that taco salad looks delish!
So, this is a friend of mine, Lindsay Moreno. She's an awesome photog...and is "giving away" a free wedding session...for travel. (for a destination wedding) Her Hubs, Beto is from Mexico and they try to go back every chance they get. Just thought I'd pass it on!

I have! But only the mineral veil which I got as a full-sized sample from Sephora. When I first tried it I was super doubtful it would work but it was WONDERFUL!


lol I think I'm going to have to do a full-on Sephora goods review soon! PS: The whipped coconut butter is AMAZING! So good I've given up using my Philosophy Amazing Grace firming cream.


Urban Decay primer, eh!? I'm going to have to look into that! :oP


lol I'm glad you share my love of meat. An equal opportunities meat lover indeed! :o)

That Pink Girl,

Yaaaay thanks for the heads up! I'll head over there! :o)


Yeah it made sleeping in my own bed all the sweeter. Even if I was staying in Fairmont Hotels!
