Bloggies+Burros+TLC= Good Times…

Omg What a great night! I had soooo much fun last night with all my girls! Mo, Joanne, Missy,Sarah, Dawn, Jen, and Julie. This was such a great bloggie meet up! Before I show you all the pics from last night, let’s just do a quick recap of ayer…

For Breakfast I had my first ever Luna Bar and OMG it was love at first bite! Just looking at these pictures is making me crave a bar lol. What is your fave Luna Bars?

For Lunch I had Campbell’s V8 Butternut Squash Soup with BBQ Popchips…yuuuuums


I took a nappy nap and then did 30 minutes of Jillian’s Boost Your Metabolism and burned 276 Calories.

Bloggie Meet Up…

I was so excited that the night finally arrived! We have been planning this meet up for about a month and it is was definitely worth the wait….We all met at 5 Burros Cafe in Queens for din din. Missy  is always talking about this place and the food ALWAYS looks amazing, so I couldn't wait to try it.

Here are some pics of all the lovely ladies….

Mo has been to 5 Burros before and she told me to try the Steak Fajita dish and I am so happy that I took her advice…this dish was Amazing! The Steak was so tender and juicy and all the sides were delish!

Yes, it deserves all these pictures lol…I also had a Piña Colada with a lizard whom I have named “Bloggie”


What a great night! (thanks Missy for letting me steal this picture)


Last week when Mo and I went to TLC for our tour, we mentioned to them about the blog meet up and they offered to keep their Queens location open JUST FOR US! How great is that! Stephanie who worked there last night was so sweet and very patient with us, this girl deserves a HUGE raise lol

We were like kids in a candy store…

I decided to try a new flavor last night, Dulce De Leche. All I have to say is “YUMS”. I am yet to find a flavor that I don’t like lol…


Thank you TLC, ya’ll are so good to us bloggies!


After Dessert, we all parted ways…


I can’t wait for next time…


This morning I needed to work off all the food that I ate ayer so I went to the gym with my sister at 7:30 for a sweat session.  I started week 3 of C25K wooohoooo, I also did Upper Body Strength Training, and cooled down with Elliptical and burned 519 Calories.

For Breakfast I got to try another product from Rudi’s Organic Bakery, this time it was Cinnamon Raisin Bagels and yup this was another winner…I am so happy that I won that giveaway and discovered these products. I am still in shock about how low in calories these are (150), they are not by any means tiny


I had the bagel with Reduced Fat Cream Cheese, and a Green Monster with PB, LMM, Spinach, and 1/2 a Banana.


I am off to catch up on blogs, I feel so behind…Have a great day everyone…
