Fun Products & Grilling

Today was my Friday, as we will be starting the wedding festivities tomorrow! This particular wedding is for someone in Josh’s extended family, so I am very excited to see his parents, brothers & sister tomorrow. After the usual work, I came home for some snacking and then headed out to do errands, which included WFs! The wonderful people at Newman’s Own Organics sent me some coupons and I could not wait to use them. Here are the Newman’s products I picked up:

I also picked up a fun box of 365 cereal that was free via coupon I got in the mail:

I also taught 45 minute Body Step. When I got home, I got showered up and prepared for some grilling with Josh. On the menu was burgers for Josh, grilled corn on the cob, peaches, and eggplant (for me!). Josh’s plate of goodness:

And mine ( I served my eggplant with some more un-pictured marinutta - I can’t get enough of this stuff):

Now its time to watch the AWESOME Thursday TV line up. Do you have weekend plans??

My weekend plans include dinner out with the girls tomorrow night, and a 10K on Saturday, and I get to see a good friend from home!

Have fun at the wedding!

I have tried the Newman's PB cups - once...only once. But I should try again since my taste buds are more sophisticated now a days.

Eggplant! I've been eating it since I was a wee child. :D
