Anniversary/Food truck frenzy!

So, May 13 was our 4-year-anniversary :)


We had a somewhat [okay, extremely] boring day, BUT a great evening. Because it involved a lot of melted cheese and chocolate. At. The Melting Pot!!!!! Perhaps my favorite restaurant. But actually, nothing can surpass Benihana. But anyway. So so good. But I think they took "anniversary" the wrong way...

(Oops...not exactly!))

And he got me Just Dance 3 (the Wii game)! It's turned out to be a really wonderful present. I've replaced my daily horrific 30 minutes of cardio on the treadmill with 3000 "sweat drops" earned on the Just Sweat mode of the game. (Which, according to the game, is equal to 30 minutes of swimming.) It's so much more fun, and I wheeze a lot less. The only downside is how much it works my right arm/entire right side more than the left. To help, I hold another Wii remote or some other small item in my left hand to balance it out. But really - if you need an arm workout, or just want some really fun cardio, play this game!! I love it!

(One of my favorite dances..I think I have it memorized.)

In addition to all the cardio (plus around 15 minutes of crunches, squats, etc.) every day, I've been trying to eat better, too. 1200-1400 calories a day. And I've been keeping that up consistently, but my food choices could be better. Somehow, I always end up eating healthy foods during the day, then "splurging" at dinnertime. It's a habit I'm trying to break. One of my goals for the summer is to lose a little weight and become a lot healthier!

On a completely UNhealthy note - Yesterday, Josh and I experienced the magic of food trucks for the first time!!

Our first stop was the Genie Mac truck, where we got some delicious gourmet macaroni and cheese. (With bacon, sour cream, and green onions!) Absolutely to die for. So rich and cheesy and MMM.

(Is that a genie floating above the truck?! Or Josh's finger...)

(No caption necessary...)

Then, we split a grilled cheese at Scratch Truck. But this was no ordinary grilled cheese. It had some fancy cheeses, plus perfectly tender short ribs and some arugula. Yummiest yum yum yum. 

(Ugh, so goooooooodd.)

Finally, we got a huge, wonderful, classic carrot cake cupcake from Scout's Treats.

(It's a cupcake truck, it has to be pink!)


It was such a fun experience!!

We also saw To the Arctic at the IMAX today. Ehh. I mean, it was fine. But it was very preachy about greenhouse gases and there were not nearly enough cute baby polar bears. Plus it was only 40 minutes! 10 bucks and a drive downtown for a 40 minute film...dumb. But I did love those baby polar bears. And walruses! Dahhwww. After the movie, we strolled along the canal for a bit. It was a nice afternoon.

RENT auditions are this weekend! And I am so excited to [hopefully] be doing theatre again! 

Having a great summer & can't wait for all the adventures ahead!
