Double Date

in All Posts

Boys at the bar, watching football:


Leaving Nicole and I ample time for girl talk.  Smile


Hope your Sunday is going well!  I, for one, cannot believe it’s already 3 PM.  We slept very late and did little besides lay on the couch.  Eventually, I dragged myself into the kitchen to prep breakfast:


Toast and scrambled eggs with tomatoes, spinach, and chives.


And then we went to Mellow Mushroom for lunch.  We took Nicole and Isaac out to lunch as a ‘thank you’ for watching our dogs a few weeks back.


Beer drinkin’ and football watchin’ ensued.


Nicole and I split the stuffed mushroom app – somewhere under all that cheese is a yummy Portobello mushroom cap with artichokes, tomatoes, and feta.


Isaac and I split a gluten- and dairy-free pizza.


The toppings were his idea:  black olives, tempeh, tomato, and pineapple.  Weird combo – but pretty good.


Key lime pie innards for dessert.


I DESPERATELY need to summon up some motivation to go on a run and lift weights.  But the couch seems so appealing… I’m going horizontal again.  Hopefully, I’ll come up feeling inspired to exercise.  A girl can dream.

    That is the cutest little pie EVERRRRRR! C’mon girl, get off the couch and get movin’ movin’.

    I’m procrastinating my workout, too, and playing with my google reader instead 🙂

    But off I go. Hope your workout goes well!

    I think it is just a lazy Sunday all around! I am reading blogs with my coffee and about to watch a couple Halloween movies 🙂

  • Sarah October 30, 2011, 3:46 pm

    Oh, Mellow Mushroom! I’m a little jealous you have one near you!
    There’s just something about Sundays that has me wanting to just lay around, too. I just woke up from a nap myself:-).

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 30, 2011, 3:48 pm

    I’m having such a lazy day today. I refuse to feel guilty for it either. Enjoy your workout!

  • Susan October 30, 2011, 3:48 pm

    I have to do laundry and change the cats’ litter. I am sitting on the couch surfing the web instead. I have a cat curled up next to me purring away. Guess I’ll have to actually give them fresh litter to justify their love.

    • CaitlinHTP October 31, 2011, 10:25 am

      Haha i love this comment. did you change the litter?

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss October 30, 2011, 3:51 pm

    Sounds like a good day to me!

  • Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 30, 2011, 4:05 pm

    You have a Mellow Mushroom near you? Jealous!
    My best friend has one near her college, and when I visited her last summer, we went there for dinner. My mind was blown. We got one of the pre-designed pizzas, and though the toppings seemed a little random, it ended up being phenomenal. I want to go back!

    • CaitlinHTP October 31, 2011, 10:27 am

      I love MM. They have awesome sandwiches.

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness October 30, 2011, 4:17 pm

    Hahaha – sometimes going horizontal can be so good! In a non-dirty way, lol! 😛 And in a dirty way too of course. But anways…enjoy! And that relaxing lazy sunday sounds perfectly lovely 🙂 I adore double dates! xyx

  • Jacalyn October 30, 2011, 4:18 pm

    It’s so difficult on a lazy football Sunday to get to the gym… you can do it! You’ll feel so good when you do!!!

  • Courtney @ The Petite AthlEAT October 30, 2011, 4:39 pm

    Hey! Get your butt up and run! You never regret a run, only the runs you miss. 🙂

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 30, 2011, 4:45 pm

    Have a good nap–and can NOT wait to hear about your run and weights later tonight!!! 🙂 hehe.

  • katie @ KatieDid October 30, 2011, 4:45 pm

    Yup the couch totally won for me today. Too much studying and too little motivation ehhh. The pizza sounds like an interesting combo, I’ve never had tempeh on pizza.

  • Amanda October 30, 2011, 4:47 pm

    I’ve been having the same trouble getting motivated to run today…..all I want is 2 miles, and yet I still just lie on the couch :))

    • CaitlinHTP October 31, 2011, 10:27 am

      Did you run??

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb October 30, 2011, 4:51 pm

    it is waaaayy too easy to get sucked into the couch on sunday afternoons! i for one am horizontal and have no plans to move the rest of the day 🙂

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me October 30, 2011, 4:52 pm

    haha I was lazy today too…well on the gym front. I cleaned the floors and whatnot but never ended up making it over to the gym.

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) October 30, 2011, 4:56 pm

    love the look of that that scramble!!!

  • Traci October 30, 2011, 5:27 pm

    ah…stay cozy on the couch. I managed to pull myself off the couch for a run but it was WINDY and cold. (Boston)

  • Amanda @ AmandaRunsNY October 30, 2011, 5:49 pm

    I’m always saying to myself…I need to workout. But a break is a good thing. Sometimes, it helps me to remind myself that I think an easy workout is a four mile run and that for a lot of people that’s a HUGE workout.

  • Brooke @ sweats & sweets October 30, 2011, 5:55 pm

    I too have not done my exercising today, holding it off till tomorrow morning because we were so busy yesterday that I needed to rest all day..or at least thats what I keep telling myself so its true. Ha!

  • Emily October 30, 2011, 5:58 pm

    Couch: 1, Emily: 0. I also had intentions for an 8-miler today, but errands and football won for me. A weekend off from exercise never killed anyone, right?

    • CaitlinHTP October 31, 2011, 10:28 am

      Absolutely not 🙂

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 30, 2011, 6:32 pm

    Remember, you never regret a workout! And ah I miss Mellow so much!!!! They are really the best pizza place…

  • CJ @ October 30, 2011, 6:51 pm

    Mellow mushroom is so delicious. When i lived in TN for a summer we went there on an outing and oh my gosh, the pizza is just perfect, a good bit of crunch but also a nice gooey cheese taste. your pictures made my mouth water!!!

  • Tracy @ Tracy's Treats October 30, 2011, 6:52 pm

    I haven’t had key lime pie for such a long time! Yours looks really good and now I’m craving it!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 30, 2011, 7:05 pm

    I’ve had such a lazy Sunday too. I blame it on all the studying I have to do!

    Enjoy your vegging or workout, whichever you decide on! 😉

  • Krystina (Organically Me) October 30, 2011, 7:09 pm

    I love tempeh on pizza. Our Mellow Mushroom has the best seasoned tempeh as a topping and I get it almost every time.

  • Jen October 30, 2011, 9:51 pm

    GF pizza that’s dairy free and served with tempeh?! Wish there was a Mellow Mushroom near me! 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP October 31, 2011, 10:29 am

      Mellow mushroom is so veg- and food-allergy friendly!

  • Lisa October 31, 2011, 3:21 pm

    That dessert looks amazing….mmmm!
