Good times were had last night!  🙂


I went out with Megan, Kelly, and Megan’s friend Taylor.  There’s a really fun bar about 0.5 mile from Megan’s place… perfect for walking home if you need to! 🙂


We hung out at Megan’s new apartment for a little bit, doing the girl chat thing.  Taylor brought her dog, Cal, over and we loved each other.  He reminded me a lot of James, actually.  Isn’t he the cutest little man?


Oh, that’s my new haircut!  I got long layers and side bangs put in.  I really like it.  I chickened out of doing anything too drastic, though.  🙂


It was quite the evening… a few glasses of wine was drunk.  We also got chips and fries at the bar to share.  We literally got kicked out at last call, I slept on Megan’s floor, and now I’m back home enjoying a stabilizing bowl of oatmeal.


It was a bigger bowl than normal… I felt really hungry this morning!


  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup rice milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 sliced banana
  • Toppings:  almonds, coconut, brown sugar, flax, cinnamon






I’m off… the Husband and I are starting our Valentine’s Day tonight because we love each other just that little extra.  :)  We’re going to start things off by going to the gym, and then we’re going out to dinner.

    Sometimes you just need a little time with the girls. And wine never hurts either!!!

    It is our wedding anniversary today so we are getting a head start on Valentine’s Day – just like you guys. Hope you have a great day together. Being together is what it is all about.

    There’s just nothing like crashing on someone’s floor after a night of drankin to make you HANGRY!

  • alexe @ soyaetchocolat February 13, 2010, 12:00 pm

    I love your hair! I can’t decide if you look more like Emmanuelle Chriqui or Nina Dobrev… Well, they both are beautiful and they look a lot alike anyway!

    Your oatmeal looks good! I’ve tried pumpkin oatmeal for the first time last week and loved it! I’m a little bit nervous about the pumpkin yogurt though… Maybe tomorrow…

    I love your hair!! Very cute. I wish I could get bangs- I have a HUGE cowlick.

  • Evan Thomas February 13, 2010, 12:14 pm

    Great to get that workout in early; that means more chocolate for later 🙂

  • Lindsay Perrone (goodiesgalore) February 13, 2010, 12:16 pm

    Aw, you guys are so cute. Its nice to see and read about a happy married couple who has lots of balance.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 13, 2010, 12:17 pm

    lol– you know it was a good night when you spend the night on someone else’s floor!! 🙂

    Love the hair!

  • Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place February 13, 2010, 12:18 pm

    have a great v-day celebration with your hubby!

  • Kt F @ ThroughTheFinish February 13, 2010, 12:20 pm

    Haha spending the night on someone’s floor… kind of my life? Better than spending the night in front of their toilet, I suppose. Loving the hair! I need to get mine done pronto.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 13, 2010, 12:20 pm

    Haha you have to get kicked out of a bar once in your life.. just because 😉 Sounds like a fun night!
    Have a great celebration with your hubby!

  • Whitney @ February 13, 2010, 12:23 pm

    Looks like you guys had fun. Nothing like spending the night on the floor. Have fun with the hubby!

  • Kel February 13, 2010, 12:24 pm

    That dog has blue eyes!!!? Is it just from the camera or are they really like that???! I’ve never seen a dog with blue eyes, lol.

    Sounds like a fun night for you ladies!

    • Caitlin February 13, 2010, 12:51 pm

      • Eliza February 13, 2010, 3:42 pm

  • Kelly February 13, 2010, 1:18 pm

    You definitely have to start Valentine’s Day on Saturday I think!

  • Matt February 13, 2010, 1:46 pm

    Is there any reason that you use rice milk instead of soy? I am looking for other alternatives to soymilk and I think I am going to buy some rice milk and almond milk today to try out.

    • caitlin February 13, 2010, 1:48 pm

      i just try to limit my consumption of soy because i feel like it’s in everything i eat.

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) February 13, 2010, 1:49 pm

    Love the new ‘do!! I desparately need a cut soon too. 😀

    I’ve got to ask…do you recommend any awesome, have-to-have-it hair products? Your hair is always so shiny and healthy looking! 😀

    • caitlin February 13, 2010, 1:51 pm

      thank you so much 🙂

      i actually dont put any product in my hair ever. i am really low maintenance about hair… i just wash (with herbal essence) and try to only use heat on it (like a straighter or a blow dryer) a few days a week. otherwise i let it air dry, i think that is why it is so shiny looking. 🙂 thanks for a nice compliment!

  • Julie February 13, 2010, 2:13 pm

    Girls nights are always fun 🙂 Sometimes you just need to get crunk with the ladies.

    Cute hair did!

  • Lisa February 13, 2010, 2:17 pm

    Sounds like such a fun time with friends! I haven’t slept on a friends couch since college. Those were the days! 😉
    Have a great weekend!

  • Ali@ Food, FItness, Fashion February 13, 2010, 2:45 pm

  • Karla February 13, 2010, 3:22 pm

    Wine is necessary sometimes!
    Looks like you had a ton of fun!
    I had a little wine myself last night 🙂

  • Taylor February 13, 2010, 3:35 pm

    WOW… COULD I LOOK ANYMORE RETARDED IN THAT PIC?!?! Holy crap. So much fun though! 🙂

  • Emily Eats and Exercises February 13, 2010, 3:55 pm

    Sounds like a fun Friday night out with the girls. Love the hair-do.
    Maybe you’ve mentioned this before but when you eat coconut is it sweetened or unsweeted? I can never seem to find coconut in the store but I’m always jealous of it in blogger oats!

    • caitlin February 13, 2010, 4:05 pm

      that is unsweetened (you can buy it in bulk from places like whole foods), but i personally prefer sweetened 🙂 its worth it!
