marvelous scenes from the weekend
I hope you all had a wonderful relaxing weekend. For some reason I feel like a lot happened in the short few days, but it might be due to the fact that I had Friday off this week, which is not common for me. So other than working Saturday (which was a short easy day), I had a lot of down time.
Which was just fine with me.
So let’s recap on some marvelous scenes from the weekend and make sure you head over to the beautiful Katie’s page to see how we all are making our Monday’s marvelous.

Marvelous Is… Introducing co-workers to my obsessions.
It’s no secret that I eat a lot of sushi. I have one particular co-worker who always tells me I am going to become a fish I eat so much of it. She also really had never eaten sushi, but wasn’t opposed to it. We both actually had Friday off, so I asked her if she would like to go have sushi with me for dinner.
Guess what. She loved it. And yes. She ate it with her fingers. I laughed and said I was sure they had a fork she could use (that or get the child chopsticks!). She opted for the fork.

2. Frozen Yogurt
I figured since I introduced her to one of my obsessions it was only fair to take her for the other.So after dinner we went to our favorite frozen yogurt spot.
I was dumb-struck to find out she had never been to a self serve frozen yogurt place, so she had a blast trying all the flavors! It was nice to be able to introduce her to two new things she had never done and I have a feeling we may be having more sushi and fro-yo dates in the future!

Marvelous Is… Actually following a recipe!
I know seems like an impossible statement coming from this girl, but I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity to try some products from Manitoba Harvest including their hemp protein.
For the longest time I have been wanting to make The Purely Twins chocolate hemp protein english muffin, and I know I probably could have subbed the hemp protein for another protein or even flour, but I just never did. Well since I actually now had some hemp protein I finally decided to give it a try. And the kicker, I followed their recipe exactly.
Not my best presentation, but I will say I was very happy with how this came out.
I topped it with some maple whipped cottage cheese and as you can tell from the couch background, I didn’t initially have intentions of taking picture of it. But since I was so happy with how it turned out, of course I wanted to share my success!

Marvelous Is… Getting fun surprises from amazing companies.
I love working with companies that truly care about their consumers and really appreciate the promotion and opinions given for their products from bloggers. The Great Low Carb Bread Company is one of those companies.
I have proclaimed my love for their squares that I had the opportunity to sample.
And it was great to hear that the winners of my giveaway loved them just as much as me! I passed this information on to the company and they were amazing and offered to send me some new products they were releasing. (they also were even more amazing and included more of the squares – see what I mean about great companies?)
The new product they sent were their newly released crackers.
We all know I am a huge cracker lover, and these were interesting to say the least. First off they’re huge.I tried the nacho cheese flavor first and I honestly loved them.
I’m thinking these would be pretty amazing made into nachos or dipped in salsa. I’m excited to play around with them! Or I may just eat them all plain. Who knows!

Marvelous Is… Random dates with my love
I decided kind of spur of the moment on Sunday to have a mini date with Matt. We had been talking awhile about going to see a movie, so I told him he had 20 minutes to get ready to leave and we were going for a surprise.
We ended up seeing Lego (yes we’re 5) and had a nice little mini date.
I think our mini photo shoots are pretty marvelous too.
Well loves, I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and have a great week as well. We have our dental specials at work for March and April, so things are going to get crazy at the clinic. So if I go MIA, I apologize.
But until then. Stay Marvelous.
