Mellow Yellow

in All Posts

Last night, Nicole, Jen, and I (plus respective male dance partners husbands) went to a lounge called Butter, and we danced until our feet hurt.  It was fun – we didn’t get home until 2:30!


Duck facing was out in full force, per the usual.  🙂


Lots of shimmying ensued after I drank two Captain Morgan and Ginger Ales (which is an awesome mixed drink, by the way).  I alternated with regular soda and managed to save myself from a headache and an overdrafted bank account.  Drinks were $$$.


Came home, ate a peanut butter sandwich, and collapsed in bed!  We slept until 11:00.  Felt so good.


Mellow Yellow brunch:


Leftover Broccoli and Mushroom Casserole, an egg, half a banana, and a quarter of a freshly chopped pineapple.  Didn’t realize how YELLOW everything was until I plated it. 



My calves are sore from dancing in heels.  I wonder if I can talk the Husband into a foot rub…

    heels are the worst that way! Good for u opting for a late night PB sammy rather than greasy pizza love (or in Tucson the thing is random “street meat” – like hot dogs, etc.)

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete February 20, 2011, 12:09 pm

    Dancing in heels is tough! Oh wait, walking in heels is tough for me! (I don’t wear them often enough to feel comfortable at all)

    Captain + Ginger Ale sounds really good!

    Sounds like a super fun night! I love how you are a professional person but can still have a good time!

  • Kristen @ That Hoosier Girl February 20, 2011, 12:14 pm

    I am the biggest baby after a night of dancing in heels! I’ve learned to bring fold up flats for at least my hike back to the car after leaving 🙂

  • Carla @ Will Run for Health February 20, 2011, 12:14 pm

    I’m not sure if this is true or not…but I think one of the NASCAR drivers owns Butter (at least in part). Random (might be true) fact. Captain and Diet Coke used to be my boo. I’m officially old as I think I’ve ruined all hard liquor for myself.

  • Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) February 20, 2011, 12:15 pm

    HA that’s the reason I rarely wear heels! Not worth the pain afterwards…! Oh, and the fact that I can’t walk in them at all is another factor of course! 😛

    Looks like so much FUN though! Duck faces are the best! 😀

  • Sana February 20, 2011, 12:19 pm

    Go get that foot rub!!

  • Erika @ FoodFitnessFun February 20, 2011, 12:19 pm

    Brunch looks delicious. Love all the yellow foods!

  • Jolene ( February 20, 2011, 12:24 pm

    YES!!!!! You go girl!!! I LOVE dancing 🙂

  • Ann February 20, 2011, 12:25 pm

    I always feel like dancing in heels is an amazing workout!

  • Heather February 20, 2011, 12:27 pm

    Looks like good times! I went dancing last night too, wish I could say I saved myself a headache this morning though, LOL

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) February 20, 2011, 12:28 pm

    Ahhh how fun! 🙂 Sounds like a great Saturday night to me. 😉

  • Nicole February 20, 2011, 12:33 pm

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 20, 2011, 12:35 pm

    Oooo I loove Dancing!!! Nights like that are so fun 🙂

  • Melissa February 20, 2011, 12:36 pm

    Wow, that sounds like a tasty cocktail! Thanks for the new drink option; I’m always unsure what to order!

  • Lee February 20, 2011, 12:40 pm

    Sounds like fun. I can’t remember the last time I stayed out that late.

    Sorry if I caused any drama in the previous post comments, I didn’t mean to!

    • Caitlin February 20, 2011, 12:49 pm

      hahah YOU weren’t the dramatic one! I wish I could’ve just moderated. No one should call other people stupid.

    Your first photo in this post should be your author bio pic. I know I would buy the book! 🙂 Just sayin’

  • Maryann (The Balanced Bean) February 20, 2011, 12:56 pm

    Did you foam roll?! 🙂 Looks like it was a fun night!!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) February 20, 2011, 1:02 pm

    I am so glad you went out and had a great time! I love when you can use a leftover dinner for a great breakfast! Looks yummy! Have a great day today and definitely see if you can get a foot rub!

  • Katie February 20, 2011, 1:09 pm

    Ahhhhhhh I miss girl nights dancing the night away! so fun! U made a better choice though with your PB sandwich, I usually would go out all night with friends dancing and we would go get Ben and Jerrys on the way home from the grocery store and eat the whole tub, we each got one! Ahhhhhhh so fun! lol!

  • trang February 20, 2011, 1:25 pm

    I love captain and ginger ale. It’s my go-to drink when I’m not feeling too well.

  • Katherine: Unemployed February 20, 2011, 1:33 pm

    mellow yellow is better than mellow mushrooms (drinking>drugs?) I don’t think this was a great comment haha sorry I just wanted to incorporate mellow mushroom

  • Kara February 20, 2011, 1:44 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I stayed out late dancing…or the last time I slept that late! Man, babies change your world 🙂

    Looks like you had a good time!

  • Meaghan February 20, 2011, 2:17 pm

    Haha Duckface 🙂 Love it!

  • Kelly February 20, 2011, 2:26 pm

    That’s where the “southern Guidos” (my affectionate nickname for them) hang out that live in my building. Good thing the husbands were with you or they would have tried to dance up on you. 😉

  • Joanna @ Drizzle of Sunshine February 20, 2011, 2:28 pm

    HA! Love those dancing pictures!! Dancing like crazies with friends is the best!! And sleeping in until 11? Good for you girl! I can never do that because my body alarm clock wont let me! 🙁

  • jen @ taste life February 20, 2011, 2:31 pm

    Sounds like a great night 🙂

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) February 20, 2011, 2:42 pm

    Your brunch looks so good! I can never sleep past 7, so I never eat brunch. I like to eat as soon as possible after I wake up!

  • Baking 'n' Books February 20, 2011, 3:06 pm

    BUT did you foam-roll like you said you were going to do no matter what?!! 🙂 Hah!

  • K is for Karma February 20, 2011, 7:10 pm

    haha — i love this! thank you for showing us how a fun balanced crazy night is OKAY! dancing until you drop is the best feeling ever =)

  • Jenifer February 20, 2011, 8:56 pm

    Awesome!!! I’ve got a girls week planned in April in Myrtle B. Can’t wait to go dancing… this just makes me look forward to it more!

  • Rachel @ Healthy Teacher February 20, 2011, 9:44 pm

    OMG I haven’t stayed up that late, much less gone dancing, in years. And, my word, I’m only 25. Apparently, 25 going on 70.

  • Joy February 21, 2011, 8:30 am

    Wow! That sounds like a great night, did you remember to foam roll?

  • Amber K February 21, 2011, 12:57 pm

    I have never been out dancing with my husband. We’ve gone to one bar and danced before and he just stood there. Aww, I love that crazy guy.

  • Amanda February 21, 2011, 1:40 pm

    Looks like you had a blast! You two deserve to have some fun after a long work week.

    Yeah…. me + heels = don’t mix, lol.
