WIAW – New Year’s Style

Happy New Year! 

How perfect that the new year starts on Wednesday, aka WIAW! Here are my eats from yesterday, New Year’s Eve!

A nice bowl of pumpkin oatmeal started my day. Then I headed out for a run - not a good idea! It was -5 degrees out. I was so cold! Somehow I managed about 3.5 miles.



I ate a quick lunch before heading to town to shop with my mom. Leftover mac & cheese and some carrots and hummus. Quite an orange lunch!

scone and tea

We stopped at Stone’s because I can never resist going there when we’re in town. I got a pecan cinnamon roll scone (yes, it was as good as it sounds) and a cup of tea! This is the first time I’ve found a tea that I liked! It had cinnamon, almond, apple, and beetroot.

We went over to my aunt’s house for a steak dinner. I don’t like steak so I brought some more mac & cheese! Also had green beans and caesar salad.

My mom’s secret recipe. Seriously. She said I can’t share it. I will say that it had pretzels, raspberries, cream cheese, and looots of sugar! 

Party time!

I went to a New Year’s party at my friend’s house!

THIS POPCORN. It had melted rolo’s. Yes please!

I got to bed at about 1 and I was beat! Now I’m just going to enjoy the last few days of break. One of my resolutions this year is to not worry too much about food, and I think I did a pretty good job of that last night! I also didn’t restrict my food at all during  the day, which is something I tend to do when I’m going to a party. Not anymore!

Once again, Happy New Year everyone! :)

What are your resolutions this year?

    That popcorn looks amazing! Melted chocolate makes everything delicious though :)

    So pumpkin is still “in” then? I’ve been meaning to make some more pumpkin recipes, but I just figured everyone would be pumpkin-ed out. lol.

    Glad to hear your New Years party was fun! Happy 2014.

    It looks like you had a fun NYE! I bet that popcorn was soo good! My fiance’s favorite candy is Rolos, so one time I bought a ton and put them in the glove box of my truck, and when he was in the passenger seat later that day, I asked him to get something out of the glove box and he was so surprised haha!! Sorry for the random story :)
