Lunch at home is such a treat. You can sit down and use a real fork and knife and really focus on the meal, that is, unless you are catching up on blogs + an episode of Giada at Home (Hi Gina!!!!) which is what I did today.
When we get back from our honeymoon in August I will be eating lunch at home almost every day (besides the days I sneak out for lunch with PB in center city). For now, though, it is such a special treat!
Here’s what went wrong before I left the office:
1. the power went out on our street, so the office had no systems working.
2. my hair got reallly frizzy from the rain
3. I drowned my iPhone in a LOT of tea by mistake. Luckily the iPhone hospital in my condo did wonders (read: paper towel blankets all around it)
A relaxing lunch was needed.
Part 1: a can of albacore tuna in water + a mix of iceberg lettuce and baby spinach (about a cup of each) + half a lemon, some kosher salt, and 1/2 tablespoon of amazing extra virgin olive oil.
And Part II, taken with hot tea: 2 oatmeal cookies from Back to Nature. Two perfect sized cookies = 120 calories.

This lunch was smoookinnnnggg. Really good. I know iceberg lettuce really doesn’t have any value, but I LOVE the taste of it soooo much. And it is really low in calories which I appreciate. By mixing it with spinach, I feel better about eating it a lot more often. Which I will. Starting now.
In other news… INVITATIONS JUST WENT OUT!!!! I am so super duper excited. Less than four months to the big day! Time is a-flying!
