What I'm Loving Wednesday (A Day Late)

I'm loving the Smashbox Photo Finish Light primer.  It's fantastic. I've used many primers and this is by far the best on my skin.  Fabulous for combination to oily skin!

I'm loving the smoothies I've been having for breakfast in the mornings.

I include ice, nonfat yogurt, coffee, banana, chocolate protein powder, and (gasp!) spinach leaves, which cannot be tasted, by the way.
It is quite delightful, if I do say so myself! Only about 250-300 calories and about 30g of protein.

Speaking of food, I'm loving the dinner we had at Coast the night before last!

I had the Lobster & Crab Gratin.
Half lobster stuffed with blue crab meat, lobster, and parmesan cream herb breadcrumb crust, green beans, and parmesan mashed potatoes

Except ... notice that I don't have any mashed potatoes on my plate.  Random tidbit about me, I hate mashed potatoes.  Nothing a substitution of seasoned fries couldn't fix! I swear the waiter looked at me like I was crazy for ordering fries with my lobster, but hey... I'm a french fry girl, okay?

Brandon had the Plantain Encrusted Mahi Mahi.
Blue cheese mashed potatoes, asparagus, and sweet basil butter sauce

I would highly recommend Coast Bar and Grill.  It was filmed in the movie, Dear John, too!
If you've seen the movie, you might recognize the alley leading to the restaurant.

I'm loving my always faithful, respectful, funny, loving boyfriend.

I realize that I have about 400 more followers now than when I posted our "story."  If you're interested in hearing about how we met and how he was my first boyfriend, click here to check it out.

In that post, I included old pictures of the two of us, up until 2010.  To make it more up to date, here are a handful of photos we've taken so far this year!

well...this one was at the end of 2010! oops!

I just about ended this post with "Happy Wednesday!" but was then reminded that it is Thursday.  I swear this week has been so hectic for me & I'm losing my brain!

XO sistahs.
