Welcome to Moe's

WOW! Thank you again for the birthday wishes- Ya’ll are too kind! Today was a good one!! I had lots and lots of work (which I love)- so the work day was done in a flash. Bonus- I got to work from home again! We were having some dead trees in our yard cut down (these guys are crazzzzzzzzzy-Yes this guy is climbing a tree with a chainsaw):


So I wanted to be home to supervise (aka make sure nothing came flying through the roof). After work there was cleaning and baking (Josh requested some more of my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies):
Then I got my cute-ness on (aka my new skirt and heart rate monitor) and taught 45 minute Body Step. It was the jam. I stopped at Harris Teeter on the way because they are selling cantaloupes for 99 CENTS! Yahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!


Josh and I decided to hit up Moe’s for dinner tonight. Josh has been wanting to go for a while now (actually hes been wanting to go to Chipotle, but we don’t have one…so Moe’s is our substitute!). Josh got a meaty filled burrito:


And I got the personal trainer salad :


Now Josh and I are watching some football and may turn on a movie (oh and I'm eating cantaloupe ;)).What are you doing?

My wonderful sister-in-law, Jenny, sent me this two links I thought you would all enjoy:

More School Lunches Going Vegetarian (Hooray)

And

Are Organic Foods Healthier?

And an EARLY Happy Birthday to the fabulous Ellie at Inside I am Dancing!!

Hey dear!

Ohhh, I am just catching up on a day's worth of blogs on my reader. I may or may not get around to starting to design my new blog at the new domain :)

I also need to scrounge up some dessert... haha

Britt said...

Those tree guys are crazy! We had some trees taken down on our property, they made me so nervous!

Glad you got to enjoy your new presents, such a good hubby!

I used to go to Moe's every Thursday night my freshman year of college, when I went to the Univ. of Oklahoma. It was a few blocks away from my dorm room. It can confirm that is tastes ridiculously good at 2am. haha

Nicci@NiftyEats said...

I'll be catching up on google reader tonight and then bed time!

Moe's sounds good. Besides Chipotle we have a Hooya's Burrito place...they have bigger burritos than chipotle, it's crazy. I like that they have spinach tortillas!

Stephanie said...

Interesting article on organic foods... thanks for the reads! As for what I'm doing right now, a lil' Entourage on demand (we missed Sunday and as you can see I am totally focused ;) ), some red wine & a small bit of dark chocolate...whoop whoop!

Paige@ Running Around Normal said...

Welcome to Moes! Love Moes:) Those cookies look fabulous!

LK- Healthy Delicious said...

happy belated birthday! I've been super busy and got behind on my blogs. :(

OMG at the guy up the tree!! You're salad looks great! I've only been to Moe's once and I didn't remember them having salads. That actually doesn't look like a bag option.

Lizzy said...

loupe for 99 cents. SAy WHAT!..amazing! I hope you picked up more then a few (an one for me) tehehh!

yay for being able to work from home, i think that would be so much fun! :)

nighty night girl!

wholebodylove said...

I am becoming increasingly passionate about school lunch improvements as my daughter gets closer to attending kindergarten. I read the article you linked and I was surprised to see that 80 percent of schools don't even comply with government guidelines!!

Leianna said...

I'm watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta and reading blogs. I'm jealous of 99 cent canteloupes!

Janetha said...

that is a steal on the melons! great stats for a 45 min sesh, i should try that body step thing.. hmm i wonder if there is a class at my gym. that is cool you teach it!

Caroline said...

I have the same HRM in red!

Maria said...

You are lucky you get to work from home so much. Glad you had a good day. Any fun Labor Day plans? We go to IL tomorrow. I can't wait!

Marissa said...

Those tree people are nuts! They are so high and are always so calm about it. Me? I'd be freaking out if I ever had to be up that high!!!

insideiamdancing said...

Thanks for the birthday shout-out :D

I have never been to Moe's and had never heard of it until yesterday! I have it bookmarked to try when I am in NY...looks delish :D

Esi said...

Yay for your good day! Mine was mostly good until the end. Looking forward to the loooong weekend!

Yum Yucky said...

Dear Cantaloupe Woman,

I hope your tree guy is smarter than mine. My guy chainsawed the rope he was attached to, fell out the tree, and his spike boot when through his leg. Great.

Singed,
No So Cantaloupey

The Blonde Duck said...

I LOVE meaty burritos!

Jenn (eating bender) said...

I love how much you love cantaloupe :o) When it's perfectly ripe, it's definitely one of the most delicious fruits!

That guy climbing the tree is absolutely NUTSO. I can't believe that! What a brave one.

I hope you have a GREAT holiday weekend, Erica!

Lauren said...

Glad you are having fun with your b-day presents.

I've never tried Moe's but I hear good things. Oh wait, no I have had some of their amazing chips and salsa. It was soooo good! :)

Hope you have a great Friday!

Pam said...

Glad you had a GOOD day, sweetie....now could you pass me one of those cookies......

Enjoy!

Balance, Joy and Delicias! said...

oh.... that's a crazy photo with that man so high~~~
those cookies are so cute! I miss baking!! :)

Deva (Voracious Vorilee) said...

I love going to Moe's with The Boy. Their tofu is so good, and I love getting quesadillas and tacos and bowls of tofu, beans, and veggies - so good. Their queso dip is really awesome, too :-)

Therese said...

I lurrrve Moe's!! Their queso is amazing (although I'm pretty sure cellulite is the main ingredient).

I majah jealous of your new Polar. Mine has been sick for a couple months now and I am going through withdrawals!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

That guy is nuts!! That's a huge tree too lol. Obv he is not scared of heights--eek!

I might have been able to guess you were eating some cantaloupe without you even mentioning it :-)

Holly said...

Holy crap! You couldn't pay me enough dollahs to climb trees like that - especially with a chainsaw! This girl is so clumsy, that's just asking for a limb to be cut off (hahaha pun intended).

Dang, that is a deal on canteloupe! I've been eating one a week....ah, I just love them.

biz319 said...

Just catching up on my blog reading since I have the day off today - HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!

My Mom and I went to Moe's one time over the summer - we were surprised at how flavorful the meat was - totally worth the $$!

Krista said...

I don't blame you for wanting to be home while that craziness was happening in you yard! YIKES!

Mmmm....cantaluope....

HealthySDLiving said...

Umm yea I'd stay home to make sure no trees came flying in my house too! HA
I've still never been to a Chipotle or Moe's...they both sound so good!

ponyknit said...

YAY for birthday presents!

IMHO Moe's is waaaay better than Chipotle. I'm pretty sure it's due to their salsa bar and hot sauce. It's awesome.

Yay for 99 cent cantalope! I hope to find something good tonight after work. I'm out of bananas, it's an emergency!

Diana said...

I LOOOOVE how vegetarianism is getting so much attention these days! I'm not a declared vegetarian, but my habits fall on that side of the line, so it would be really nice for there not to be any stigma attached if I did ever decide to call myself vegetarian/vegan/raw/etc. So many kiddie meat products are so processed anyway!

teresa said...

the food from moe's sounds so good! i love the monitor!

Holly said...

mmmmm mexican! looks sooo good! that is one tall tree!

Ada said...

Man, I am super jealous of that 99 cent cantaloupe deal! Cantaloupe totally rocks:)

I cannot believe that guy is climbing the tree like that, totally crazy!

Red Head, Yellow Dog said...

cantelope for 99 cents?!? um i'm on my way to HT for sure!!!

fittingbackin said...

Love your HRM - that's an awesome amount of calories for 46 minutes too - woo!! Right now i'm blogging - have friends coming over in 30 but we're already ready already so i'm just chillin before I get my drink on - fab!

just me said...

happy late bday! sorry i missed it!

Gaby said...

I love Chipotle - and Moes looks like a fab substitute!

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) said...

Hooray for your new HRM! I almost bid on one on ebay today :) I am DYYYYING for one!!

lilveggiepatch said...

Glad the heart rate monitor's working smoothly!

Love your "personal trainer salad"... great name.

Have a great long weekend, my dear!

carolinebee said...

Happy bday Erica a little late!!!! Sounds like a great week and u scored some great loot :D

Erin of Care to Eat said...

Nice cal burn! I love HRMs :) Glad you had an okay birthday. Some years are like that, right?

Aggie said...

Is that salad actually called the Personal Trainer? I haven't been there in so long, I've always loved their salsas!

Enjoy your new grill!!
