Hey everyone! Still no update on my situation with the horrible company (they were supposed to call back by today and SHOCKING they didn’t). Today was a really great day though because I got to hang out with my friends that are in town from MA! They are actually getting married in two weeks which is super exciting Anyway, there is a park about 30-40 minutes away that is really beautiful so we decided to do a picnic and a walk/hike around the park.
We decided to walk down to the beach on a path that is part paved and part light hike. We found some rocks to spread out on and set up the lovely meal that my friend packed for us! Before I get to the amazing meal, let me show you the view we got to enjoy.
Not bad right?! It was such a beautiful setting for a picnic. I can’t believe it took us so long to do it. It was also nice because it wasn’t too hot which was a major bonus.
Check out this spread! Clearly my friend knows me well! Stuffed grape leaves, a fruit roll, some banana chips, Falafel sticks (not gf but I knew a little wouldn’t affect me so I tried them and they are amazing!), salad with hummus and water. She did such a great job! It was delicious, I still have some of it left to snack on because I was stuffed!
I wanted to make dessert because I have been wanting to try this recipe for so long! It’s Chocolate Covered Katie’s Healthy Cookie Dough Dip! Cookie dough that is healthy and packed with protein?! Count me in. I made one small change though. I didn’t want the dip to taste like nut butter so I substituted the peanut butter with coconut butter! OMG it may have been the best decision I’ve made in a long time lol! It gave it a light coconut flavor but was mild enough that it didn’t overwhelm the dip. It isn’t the most beautiful dish to photograph (especially packed for a picnic) but the flavor was so amazing. I cut up apples and strawberries for dipping. Perfect dippers, the strawberries were especially delicious! I had to spoon it on them though since it was nice and thick. Definitely recommend this recipe!
In total we estimated that we walked 4-5 miles which was a pretty good distance. It was a perfect way to get my mind off of the bullshit I’ve been experiencing the past few weeks. It felt good to actually get out on my day off and enjoy my friends and nature. And I’ll sleep really well tonight
As promised, Tyler says hi!! I don’t know what the Groomer did when cutting his hair but he’s so adorable no matter the haircut He’s such a little cuddlebug, it has been so nice!
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday evening! I’m going to be editing photos for a bit tonight (I did a small engagement shoot for my friends as part of our day) and then I’m going to just relax. It is going to feel so great!
Have a good night! Hope you have a nice Monday. I’ll probably give it one last shot with that company tomorrow but maybe after that for my own sanity and I may just have to figure out an exit strategy. I’ll see how much they piss me off tomorrow though
