We did the unthinkable.

by Elizabeth on January 18, 2013

Yesterday Noah and I both woke up feeling pretty flu like so we had a lazy morning sitting around in our pajamas until noon. I made us some comfort food for lunch (peanut butter, honey, and banana panini for me and the same for him except with jelly because babies can’t have honey) and then we headed out to the exciting world that is Walmart. I’m still trying to figure out how to work the camera… when I zoom in it gets blurry and won’t focus. Any advice? In other blogging news, be on the lookout for some exciting new changes coming soon!


We were in search of some shoes for Noah to wear to a wedding this weekend and were unsuccessful in finding any. We WERE successful in being highly entertained by the people of Walmart. It never fails.


I think I found the person who hit you… he couldn’t see the giant sign you posted.


The family that jammies together stays together?


Wud up rhinestone cowgirl?! Get ya some uh those veggies.


Hey, at least we got something out of the trip right? Even if it was only our comedic relief for the day ;-).

Once we got home and Noah had his nap, we decided it would be fun to go play at the park!


We even made a few new friends while we were there.


It was just me and NJ for dinner last night so I did the unthinkable. Joe would never allow me to do it if he had been here.


Joe hates onions more than anything in the world. I never buy them or cook with them because I value the stability of our marriage. We made a huge stir fry that included onions for our dinner last night and it felt almost the same as the time in high school when my parents went out of town and I threw a huge crazy party and the cops showed up. Just kidding, mom. I never threw a party because YOU never went out of town. And let’s be honest, I only had three friends in high school. One of whom was the principal. I really wish I was kidding.

Today involves another attempt at finding wedding shoes and babysitting my awesome nephew, Robby!


What’s the best part of your Friday? Onions: love em or hate em?

oh my gosh – I *HATE* onions as well!! it’s one of the only things I’ll ever say that about. My parents joke that I’ve got an allergy to it. Seriously, I do not want to see those slimey things, or smell it, or definitely taste it. iiiiiiiiiiiick!! LOL

and yep..I kinda love Walmart, I gotta say, but there are some characters there!

Haha you and Joe would be BFF’s! He hates them with the same passion you do!

I love onions…hubby hates them…hahah!

I sometimes sneak some in my salad during the day and at night (kissing goodnight) he can still taste them??? Then the look..of, “You had onions today didn’t you” is priceless but embarrassing. ;-)


4 Elizabeth January 18, 2013 at 1:34 pm

YES!!! I have had “the look” many times. I understand the embarrassment ;-)


5 Erin January 18, 2013 at 8:31 am

Love love love onions! I add em to everything. Good thing my husband likes them too, right?

I’m quite jealous your husband likes them too!

That panini looks amazing!! Oh my gosh I would love a hot lunch today. I can’t wait to be back at school (well, my apartment) so I’m home for lunch again. Also really excited to see the changes that are happening :)
p.s- The pajama pictures- dying.

Thanks Sarah! I can’t wait to see pics of your hot lunches once you’re back! I’m always looking to spice it up ;-)

Best of part of my Friday is that my hubs is picking up Ella from daycare so I can run in peace before I coach tonight! I was so excited when he offered yesterday! Also – I cannot stand onions and wish that my hubs had the same respect for my hatred as you do for your husband.

Running in peace?! That sounds awesome haha! You won’t have to worry about fussing, picking things up that get thrown out of the stroller (or finding things that apparently got thrown out a week ago…) Have a GREAT run :-)

Thanks Carly!

Omigosh that panini looks incredible. Ultimate comfort food for sure :D As for onions, I love the flavor they add to certain dishes, but my stomach doesn’t handle them too well so I don’t end up eating them all that often. It always feels great to get away with things that seem taboo, though. Happy Friday, girlie!

PS – Noah is absolutely adorable. My heart is melted <3

Thanks Amanda! He is a sweetheart :-)

Must dig my panini maker out to make that beautiful creation!

I LOVE onions especially when they’re all cooked up in something. Sadly my BF doesn’t like them (or any vegetable) so I always have to find healthy meals with no veggies in it. He’s an odd ball… but I love him :)

Hope you’re feeling better now! This weekend I’m going wedding dress shopping with my best friend… I’m her MOH in July!!

Thank you! Yes you NEED to get out that panini press! There are endless opportunities!!!


19 Katie @ running4cupcakes January 18, 2013 at 4:46 pm

I could really take them or leave them. .. however I hate when my husband eats them because it seems to take forever for them to get off his breath!

I know… onion breath is sooo bad! I secretly love that he hates them!


21 Stephanie@nowirun.com January 18, 2013 at 7:06 pm

People-watching is too much fun :)
Cooked onions = delish. I had some yesterday and I loved them!
I’m camera clueless or I’d help.
