Future Husband and I keep commenting that we are on our "Weddingmoon." We’re both on vacation, but it’s not our honeymoon yet, so it’s our WEDDINGMOON! Super exciting — we are both very relaxed.
We met up with our DJ at 11 and went over all the details. We’re going with Soundwave Entertainment. The company is owned by a wife and husband team (the wife is the coordinator and the husband is the DJ). Then, we headed to the mall for Christmas shopping. First, we stopped off at Red Lobster for lunch.
One of the things we’ve begun to do is order 1 dinner and side salads for the both of us instead of getting 2 large dinners that neither of us can finish! We end up spending so much less money AND we both end up satisfied, but not stuffed.
I started with one of the famous cheesy rolls and a salad.
We ended up "sabotaging" the last cheese roll with Splenda.
Neither Future Hus nor myself wanted to eat the last roll, but we knew if it stared us in the face long enough, one of us would give in! (Future Hus is watching what he eats before the wedding because he "wants to look his best"… it’s so cute.)
We got Surf and Turf to split. Here’s what we were served…
And here’s my portion…
We did some shopping at the mall and dropped my ring off to be cleaned. We also ended up splitting a Peppermint Mocha.
And by the time we got home (4:30), I was ravenous for a snack and had some Grape Nuts and milk…
We’re going to have a relaxing Saturday evening at home! I might do some cleaning, too! I hope you have a fun night as well….
What’s your trick to eating out and staying healthy? I like to use meals out as a chance to splurge sometimes (like with a yummy dessert or rich cream sauce on pasta), but I do try to mostly eat normal portions and whatnot when we eat out. Splitting meals saves calories AND $$$!
