Trip to the Zoo

I had some free tickets to the Philadelphia Zoo, so Hubby and I planned to take a trip to Philly on Saturday if the weather was nice.

Hubby and I did breakfast first thing. I made a huge bowl of oats to keep me going today with some coffee on the side.

Oats:
1/2 cup oats
1 cup water

In the mirco for 1:30 then added PB, coconut flakes, and strawberries! So yummy!!

I decided to workout while Hubby was going some stuff on the computer (and so I would not have an excuse later) 10 lb Slimdown Total Body it was.

Before I forget here are my giveaway winner for the 10 lb Slimdown DVD:

Genesis, Jessica, and MRM

Ladies email me your address so I can get you for DVD!

After we got showers it was off to the zoo. I will not bore you with tons of pictures just a couple quick ones:)

Hubby and I
The turtles made me realize it was time for lunch
Since we didn't feel like fried zoo food, we finished up our tour and headed home. On the way we stopped at the Wawa to grab some eats!

I had a turkey bacon ranch melt, and left most of the bread and hubby and I split the Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake. (Not bad for a car phone photo)
On the way home we remembered that Wegmans was opening the new Wine and Beer Shop by us today. What a great day to stop the store was covered in samples! And the wine store prices are really great. I am excited to get all my shopping done it one place (yes this is a big deal for those of us that live in the Northeast and normally have to go to special stores to buy alcohol). I lived in the South for awhile so I missed it being at the grocery store!

Hubby and I even found this Margarita Mix at Wegmans.

I must explain why this was so exciting for me. In 2007 I was diagnosed with a Citrus allergy. Now it is not like threatening or anything like that, but when I have citrus my face and other parts of my body break out in really bad hives. A few times before we figured it out, my face had so many hives I could not open my eyes! That being said cut out citrus for 3 years and I have been fine. Crazy thing is you do not realize how many cocktails have citrus until you try to avoid it. Margarita has been off limits since Summer 2007 for me. So when I found this mix I was so excited I had to get it.

Quick Long walk with the puppy by the water and it was cocktail time!

Hubby and I were not over hungry for dinner (lunch was at 2:30) so we made little tasting plates

Hummus, crackers, cheese, veggies, and mushroom turnovers (and maybe some chocolate later!) made for a great night!


Anything fun you did over the weekend?
