What I Ate: Tacky Light Edition
I’m a little late on this because I didn’t have time to share last week’s but better late than never, right? Last Saturday was such a fun day packed with some great Richmond adventures so I couldn’t resist sharing! Let’s dive into the food:
I woke up early on Saturday morning because I was speaking on a panel at a small business conference led by Sharvette Mitchell. Sharvette and I met a few years ago speaking on a panel together, so it was fun to get to catch up again! Before the conference, I had a bowl of blackberries.
Lately, I’ve just been eating fruit for breakfast. I’m not sure where my regular breakfast cravings have gone but I’m just going with it. I spent the morning hanging out with these lovely ladies!
After a very inspiring morning, I stopped by my grandma’s place to say hi and then came home to have lunch. I was super hungry and was thrilled to remember that I had leftovers in the fridge.
Alex and I had gone to The Mill at MacArthur on Friday and I couldn’t finish my mountain of pasta so I was excited to have some left. P.S. The Mill has tons of awesome vegetarian options and the service was fantastic. We’re both excited to go back again soon.
I finished up a few Christmas errands and then got bundled up for the Tacky Light Race.
I basically snapchatted the entire race so if you’re following me (Username: HeartVegetables) then you probably saw that the race was so much fun. All of the lights distracted me so the race went by really fast! Afterward, my friend Carin and I stopped at Zoe’s Kitchen for dinner.
I was still freezing from the race so I knew I needed soup and I can’t miss out on the basil pesto hummus. (I do have a basil pesto hummus copycat recipe if you want to make your own!) I love Zoe’s Kitchen if you can’t tell.
Once I got home, I took a nice hot bath. We recently renovated our bathroom so it felt extra luxurious. A bunch of you have asked for “after” photos of the bathroom renovation so here’s a shot of the new tub, subway tile, and floor! (As you can tell, we’re not totally done with the floor- we need to make a threshold!)
And that’s a wrap! It was a delicious day!
What have you been eating lately?
Linking up for What I Ate Wednesday!
Sounds like a great day! That tile on the bathroom floor… love!
Some days I really crave a mountain of pasta too!I think I will have some today have a great rest of your week
I loved eating pasta before a race!
Love the way that tub looks! I love a nice bowl of soup after being out in the cold! Ive heard great things about Zoes Kitchen but havent been there myself!
I’ve been doing loads of recipe developing, so I’ve been eating a whole load of things. But today, I had some chocolate covered almonds with hemp, coconut whipped mousse and salmon! YUM
A hot bath after a chilly winter run is amazing!!!
Never heard of Tacky Light before!! And your tub looks great! I have been really into oatmeal with egg whites lately – that’s been my go-to breakfast!
Ooh wow, I love a hot bath; that’s a great way to end the day.
And I’ve never heard of the Tacky Light Race. 🙂 That meal of pasta looks so good, and fruit for breakfast all is delicious.
I have been craving a good pasta meal, just can’t decide if I want to make it myself or go out….
And your bathroom looks gorgeous!
Ooh the bath tub looks great! I would love to redo our bathroom, but sadly we’re renting so it’s not really up to me.
