What I [Am Loving] Wednesday

Maybe it’s the sunshine…

But I’ve been in an [extra] happy mood this week. Maybe it’s because it started off with good wine and great friends?

We had an informal [VAis4bloggers] meet up at Secco Wine Bar in Carytown, so I enjoyed some wine with Stephanie, Gabby, Adrienne, Megan, Lauren, and Lindsey.

Secco has “flight night” on Monday nights, so I got three classes of (white) wine for $10. Not a bad deal. This might need to be a Monday night tradition…

Perfect start to the week. 

Anyways, my eats have been a little random, because I’ve been running from one activity to the next. But this is what I have been enjoying this week!


I’m still enjoy 0% chobani greek yogurt + blueberries in the morning, but yesterday, I also had a granny smith apple, with a side of PB2


It was my brother’s birthday on Monday, so he and I grabbed lunch together on Tuesday for a little celebration. Chipotle might not be glamourous but we both enjoyed our burrito bols. He got a veggie bol too, but his had cheese and sour cream. Blehhh.

So delicious. Burrito perfection.


Eric has me hooked on fried rice. I feel like I’m craving it all the time. So when he texted me asking if I wanted to come over for some veggie fried rice… of course I said yes.

I brought a super simple salad, with some Annie’s Green Goddess dressing. It was my first time trying this dressing and I actually didn’t love it… maybe it’ll grow on me? Not sure, but the fried rice was so freakin delicious. Eric, I could eat this every night. Mmk?

What are you loving this week?


  1. It does sound like you’ve been having a great week so far! Glad to hear (read) that, Liz! All of your eats look fabulous too!

  2. Everything looks tasty! Wish I had some bloggers in my area to meet up with. It always looks like so much fun!

  3. Flight night was fabulous!!! I’m definitely up for it anytime too, I am in love with Secco for serious haha 🙂 Glad you’re having such a great week and hope you enjoy Barre class tonight if you go. I’m planning on taking Bronwyn’s class friday at 4pm if you are around and wanted to try it out too, just let me know!

  4. i used to love fried rice when I was little, but I havent had it recently since I know how bad it is for you. I really should try to make it homemade, I bet it tastes better too!

    • I’ve been making it with quinoa, and using soy sauce to replace the oil for frying! I’ll hopefully be posting a recipe soon, because mine is way lower in calories than most fried rice!

  5. Good wine makes a week great, that’s for sure! I’ve been enjoying white wine for a chance bc it’s so dang hot here!

  6. Can’t go wrong with a good glass of wine! Although, I’m particularly loving my plan for after-work pina coladas. Summer comes with so many good things 🙂

  7. Sounds like such a fun week so far! Hope you have a great rest of your day! 🙂

  8. I love veggie fried rice that looks so delicious!!

  9. Ah, flight night. Sounds divine!

    We had veggie fried rice for dinner last night. 🙂

  10. Starting the week off with wine, win!! I unfortunately have none. I had a bottle of sweet red in the fridge last night that I wated so bad. Well the bottle must have had a crack in it because when I sat it on my counter a chunk of glass flew out the bottle and the wine ended up all over the counter and floor 🙁

    The fried rice looks so good, I love fried rice! Now I am craving it, lol!!

  11. That looks great! I want all of it 🙂

    I’ve never had the GREEN Goddess…but I love the regular goddess.

  12. I’ve been loving lots of juices and the new photo challenges on instagram! x x

  13. I love Annie’s Green Goddess! Makes everything amazing….can’t get enough

  14. i LOVE chipotle! their bowls are my absolute fav. plus, you can’t beat their guacamole 😉

  15. I love love love fried rice too, but I’ve never been able to make it successfully on my own. And that burrito bowl looks so good! I’ve never eaten at Chipolte, but every time I pass one I think about how much I want to try it.

  16. Not gonna lie…that PB2 is AMAZING….have you tried the chocolate version too?

    oh–LOVE flight nights. mmmmm

  17. Monday night flight night sounds like an awesome weekly event. That woul,d actually make me look forward to Mondays. 🙂

  18. Ah! your meals look fantastic! i wish that we had a local meet up like this one. looks great. and who doesn’t like wine?

    so is PB2 worth all the mixing hassle? 😉

  19. I like the idea of Flight Night. Might have to find a place where I can make it my own.

  20. That’s got to be the best Monday night tradition I’ve seen – I’ll join you next week 🙂
    I’m loving ice cream with caramel sauce this week, far too much of it, and I love your iPhone winner-choosing, that rocks 🙂
