Hello loves! Long time no talk!

As always I have been busy busy busy, but this week I actually have two days off from work, so I am trying to take advantage and catch up on a few things. Of course wedding planning takes the forefront, but I also thought since it was What I Ate Wednesday time, I would give you guys a little sneak peak into what I’ve been eating lately.

Fall into Good Habits: WIAW

But while we’re on the wedding talk I will just mention that Matt and I did our engagement photo session over the weekend and had a blast! We did it at a local spot called the Brat Haus.  We chose this location because we wanted it to be a bar scene and not only did their inside bar have some great photo options, but they also had fun outdoor areas to take pictures.

One thing I will say is I love our photographer. She had gotten there before up and as we drove us she basically ran to our car with excitement telling us all the ideas she had. We had so much fun with her and she really wanted us to just be ourselves, hang out and to let her capture our real love. And she let me take an Instagram selfie at the end of the session. A sign of a true great photographer.

We haven’t gotten the photo’s back yet, but she did post a teaser on her blog.

I can not wait to see the rest!

But enough wedding ramble, on to the foods!

I will admit most of it has not been home cooked. We have been eating out like mad people, but honestly I’m not really complaining.

Dinner dates at Whole Foods have been happening a lot.

It just is honestly so convenient after work, and since we have basically become regulars, it just feels like we’re hanging out with friends at the bar and having dinner.

I also think I could eat sushi everyday. And their brussels sprouts on the hot bar.

Which is a good thing because a few days later we had a sushi date with a friend at our favorite sushi spot.

I usually get the Rainbow Roll, but decided to try something new and got their Alaskan Roll, which was spicy salmon, krab mix, and cucumber. Anything from this place is pretty much amazing, their fish is always so fresh.

The lack of cooking continued through out the week. When you have good food so conveniently close to you sometimes it’s just too easy to just eat out or grab something and bring it home.

Enter Chipotle.

Matt and I have a thing that every time we get Chipotle, we have to eat it picnic style and eat on the ground. It’s silly, but it’s because the first time I ever had Chipotle he actually laid out a blanket on the floor and we had a little picnic.

And to keep the Mexican theme going, it was just Taco Tuesday (is this a thing anywhere else? apparently it’s a huge thing here in arizona, but i hadn’t heard of it before moving here).  Soooo of course Matt and I had to go get some taco’s.  I met him for lunch after some errands and taco’s were had.

We were both surprisingly impressed with these taco’s. Carne Asada with a pickled jalapeno salsa, avocado cream, and pickled cabbage. Not only were these taco’s pretty to look at, they were absolutely delicious.  It was the perfect combination of flavors.

Some other tasty treats to mention.

I recently won a giveaway for Bare Snacks Coconut Chips.

Now let me say. I have been on a pretty big coconut kick as of late. And I knew I liked coconut chips to start with, but their chocolate bliss coconut chips. Holy Goodness. These things are ah-mazing.

I’ve been putting them on basically everything, even fro-yo brought home. I mean why pay for mediocre toppings, when I have more delicious ones at home?

And one last thing to mention.

HOLIDAY CUPS.

I may or may not have gotten a little too excited when I got my coffee the other morning and saw the holiday cups were back. I know everyone loves their holiday flavors, but white chocolate mocha’s with soy will always be my winter beverage of choice.

Well loves off to do more wedding fun stuff, I hope you all have a wonderful week.
