I didn't know I loved it

Welcome to the latest installment of Thankful Things Thursday. I wish I had taken photos of the things in today's list but I didn't and now regret it because they were both really pretty.  Plus they tasted better even than they looked if that is possible.

This week I had the opportunity to be in Schaumburg on Saturday because my phone stopped working during my Saturday morning run/walk so I had to go the Apple store to get it fixed/replaced.  Dan had some friends over and they were making wings for dinner so I was trying to figure out what I would do (wings are WAY too many points even though they are delicious especially since he was going to smoke them).  Across from the mall was Whole Foods so I decided to stop there and see what I could find for dinner.  This brings me to my first thing to be thankful for - the Whole Foods salad bar.  Oh my goodness!  First off there are so many 0 point vegetables to make a deliciously tasty salad but I also added a little pulled chicken and some noodles to mine.  Seriously YUM!  I loved every single bite and then had mixed feelings for not making a bigger salad and being grateful that I don't love closer because I'd want that ALL THE TIME!

The next thing I'm thankful for is also food related and I didn't know I would love it nearly as much as I did.  Jen and I were out shopping on Sunday (in case you are wondering, yes we bought matching running tights for the Egg Shell Shuffle!) and neither of us had had lunch when we spotted a Fro-Yo restaurant under construction in the Commons. Instantly we both wished they were open and then I said "why don't we go to Yumz?"  Jen has been to the one in Crystal Lake but I'd never been before so she gave me the low down on how it worked.  I was glad that I went with her to know how the whole thing worked cause there was a line of people there when we got there and I hate looking like an idiot (though I am used to it).  I took what I thought was about 3/4 cup of vanilla fro-yo and topped it with fresh strawberries, blueberries and pineapple.  Also, 3 miniature Keebler Fudge Stripe-like cookies and they were as adorable as they were delicious.  We sat down on some couches and enjoyed our treats.  Oh YUM!  Again, I'm glad this place isn't closer because I would want it ALL THE TIME (probably right after I had a salad from Whole Foods!)

The last thing in my thankful list today is the keywords that people use to find my little blog.  In the past week people have searched for 'nude weigh ins' and 'naked weigh ins' to join my little adventure.  I'm now wondering  what the heck I wrote about that matched that search criteria.  Other great keywords used 'funny fat things' and 'funny social activities'.  I really hope that I helped you guys out with those searches!!

So, what are you thankful for?  Let me hear it!!

    OH GOD, if I lived closer to a Whole Foods, I would darn near RESIDE in that place. I dream about that salad bar. I also dream about their spinach feta pizza from their deli...the one in St. Paul even bakes up slices throughout the day OR you can take one home for your enjoyment. I am drooling just thinking about it!

  2. Hmmmm... spinach feta pizza? Sounds REALLY yummy!!! Maybe I'll have to find an excuse to head back over there. :)
