What I Ate [to celebrate] Wednesday!

Remember when I tweeted that I had good news but I could say what? Well now I can say it 🙂

I got promoted at work!

I’m pretty excited about it! I don’t talk about my job much on here (because, that’s kind of blogging 101 of things NOT to do) but I love my job (I work in marketing) so I’m excited to take on some new responsibility.

Anyways! So it was a fun day at work, of course. That’s why this is a celebratory What I Ate Wednesday!

Go join the party over at peasandcrayons


I started off with a fun breakfast:

Classic smoothie: 1 banana, 1/2 cup soymilk, 1 tbsp peanut butter, handful of ice, stevia and chia seeds. (I smeared the peanut butter around the inside of the glass!)

Morning snack:

I’ve been eating those peanut butter heady goo balls in the morning. Just a couple are a great pick me up! I usually go to the gym during lunch so these are the perfect thing to eat before a workout.


My lunches have been pretty simple, because I’ve been packing frozen lunches for the most part. It’s saving money, and if you get good ones… it’s pretty healthy!

These are only a couple of bucks, and they taste great! I can eat it quickly, after a lunch time workout, so it’s perfect!

Afternoon snack:

I love these. I love them so much, I don’t buy them very often because I can eat a box way. too. fast. But they’re pretty decent for you, and they’re easy to throw in my work bag for when I get the afternoon munchies.


What better way to celebrate than with Mexican food? We went to Su Casa, one of my favorite local Mexican places.

I had a veggie burrito, without the sour cream and cheese. It was so delicious! Peppers, onions, refried beans…. deliciousness! I forgot to take a picture until I was done eating… so you’re only seeing the half that went into a to-go box! (Obviously, the restaurant lighting made for some horrible picture taking.)


No celebration is complete without dessert! We took a trip to Sweet Frog for some fro-yo.

Enough said.

What’s the last thing you celebrated?


  1. Congrats on the promotion!!! That’s exciting! 🙂

  5. congrats! Happy WIAW 🙂

  6. Congrats on your promotion!

  7. Congratulations on your promotion!!! 2011 was a pretty bang up year for me-I got engaged, got promoted and ran my first full marathon! So I am laying low with the celebrations so far this year as I am wedding planning!

  8. Ahhhh congratulations girl, that is SO exciting!!!! I love the looks of that pb smeared smoothie too, it would be perfect for a day as warm as today’s going to be 🙂

  9. lady CONGRATS! I always see your tweets about work and you sound like you work really hard, so you deserve it girl 🙂 You should be really proud of yourself!

  10. CONGRATS!! that is so exciting!!..and side note I LOVE special K crackers!!

  11. The smoothie looks awesome & those special k crackers are so addicting! 🙂

  12. Yay, promotions! Major congrats to you!

  13. CONGRATULATIONS! So good to know work appreciates you–and is rewarding you for it. Fro-yo=perfect celebration food. Hmm, my last celebration was…celebrating old friends who hadn’t seen each other in a while. And it involved pizza smothered in surprisingly good vegan cheese. Yesss.

  14. Yay congrats!!! That is awesome 😀

  15. Congrats! Mexican is my go-to celebratory meal too! Birthdays, passing exams, anything. All celebrated with some good Mexican food… and margaritas, of course!

  16. Congrats on your promotion!! 🙂

    Let’s see, I celebrated my dad’s birthday last weekend, and that was fun because I had wine and crab cakes!

  17. Today I’m celebrating the completion of my first semester.
    Looks like you celebrated your promotion in style 😉

  18. Congratulations! I can’t wait to celebrate with you in person. 🙂

    I love those Special K crackers too. Especially dipped in almond or peanut butter.

    And yes, I said dipped. Why waste a knife when you can just stick the whole cracker in the jar?

    • I’m SO excited for our meet up!!! It’s going to be fantastic. And I pretty much love anything dipped in nut butter, but you’re right, those crackers are especially amazing. (I also love graham crackers dipped in dark chocolate dreams. That might be the most epic but simple combo ever.)

  19. Wow, your eats look delicious! Congratulations on the promotion, I’m sure you deserve to celebrate!

  20. Congratulations on your promotion! It’s always a good feeling to know that you are exceeding others’ expectations. The last thing I celebrated was getting an internship position. I received the news when I least expected it so it was perfect!

  21. That smoothie looks delicious… I would never think to smear the pb on the glass lilke that. Great idea!

    Congrats on your promotion!

  22. Congrats on the promotion! So exciting :). Your breakfast looks delicious! I’m definitely trying that out sometime this week.

  23. Congrats girl on the promotion!!!! So happy for you! we love celebrations 🙂

  24. I love having a sweet little ball of protein to get me through the day.

    Oh I can’t remember the last time I celebrated, but I need to find a reason!

  25. Congratulations! You definitely deserved that celebratory dinner (and I feel your pain re: trying to take decent pictures in dark restaurants). The last thing I celebrated?? Hmm, well the birth of my nephew but we haven’t had an official celebration yet (the new parents are too pooped!)… so before that was my birthday, which I celebrated with Thai food and chocolate lava cake 😛

  26. Congrats! I think Mexican food is appropriately celebratory too!

  27. Congratulations on your promotion!! Very exciting 🙂

    I LOVE the idea of putting peanut butter on the side of your glass. I put peanut butter in my smoothies for satiety but I miss the texture, so this is kind of mind-blowing for me, haha.

  28. CONGRATS!!! That’s such great news. 🙂

  29. CONGRATS on the promotion!!!
