Just the two of us.  The perfect way to describe our weekend.  Vishnu was home by 1:30 pm on Friday and didn’t have to work on Saturday or Sunday.  Instead of making specific plans to fill our time, we decided to wing it and relax.  No better way to spend the weekend, especially given that Vishnu’s going back to a six days a week/12 hours a day schedule.

Here’s how we filled our days…

Taco Bus

Vishnu was craving Mexican food on Friday and asked if I wanted to try Taco Bus.  I just so happened to have a Taco Bus coupon (one free entrée), so I was on board!

The coolest thing about this place is that the kitchen is literally located inside a renovated school bus.  So you order at the front window (much like a food truck) and take a seat on the outdoor patio where you food is brought out to you.  Thankfully, it didn’t rain on Friday, so we were able to enjoy our meal in the beautiful Florida sunshine (for once!).

I ordered the nachos – queso, veggies, and tofu (as my chosen protein).  The portion size looked small at first, but I was sufficiently stuffed by the end of our meal.  I’d definitely order this again!

Taco Bus 1

Vishnu ordered two tacos – fish and chicken – and was happy with his decision.  Everything was fresh and nicely seasoned.

Taco Bus 2

We hear that the original Taco Bus in Tampa is amazing, so we’ll have to check that out at some point.

College Football

Both the UGA and Georgia Tech games were on at the same time, so we switched back and forth between the two for a while.  House divided!

House hunting

We spent most of our Saturday morning looking at homes in Chicago.  Since we’ll be there for at least four years, we’re thinking about buying versus renting.  It’s all super exciting to think about but a little nerve racking at the same time.  Eep!


I FINALLY finished The Poisonwood Bible!  I’ll share more soon.

About Me page

I rewrote my About Me page.  It needed a bit of an update and an overall refresh.  Check it out!

Homemade treats

We were both craving something chocolaty on Saturday night, so I made a batch of Lindsay’s Freezer Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.  You guys, you HAVE TO make these at some point.  I used crunch PB and chia seeds but feel free to add whatever mix ins you like.

I also made these Blender Banana Oatmeal Muffins.  I was looking for a healthy go to snack, and these muffins did the trick.  Fair warning, these are on the extreme end of the healthy spectrum, but still taste delicious.

I had two things on my Target list.  I ended up coming home with four.  Not bad, considering that I can easily spend $100+ at Target.  And get this, I had $11 worth of coupons, so I only ended up spending $25.

I found this shirt in the clearance rack.  $6!!!  Plaid shirt + jeans + boots = my (eventual) Fall outfit.

Barre3 Online

After reading about Barre3 Online workouts on Kacy’s blog, I decided to take advantage of the free 15 day trial and see what the hype is all about.  I did a 30 minute workout on Sunday, and at one point, my entire body was shaking.  I’ll share more once I’ve tried a few more classes.  But so far, this whole Barre thing seems pretty legit!

Naan pizzas

With a lot of help from my friend Trader Joe’s, I made delicious naan pizzas for dinner last night – pesto, fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and chicken (for Vishnu).   Yum!

NFL games

Football season is officially upon us, people!  There was some serious game watching happening at the MIS house yesterday.  The serious part only applies to Vishnu.  I was in and out during most of the games.  I will, however, be watching tonight’s Falcons game because Matt Ryan is my QB this week, and his performance will determine whether I win or lose!  Wish me luck!

Well, these are just a few snippets from our weekend.  I hope you had a great one as well!

Happy Monday and thanks for reading. Smile

What did you fill your weekend with?

  1. OMG those peanut butter cups look divine- definitely clicking over for the recipe. I’m loving the plaid shirt look too! I bought a shirt when I was in London and kinda wish I bought a few more. I started reading Girl on The Train this weekend and so far I’m really liking it- hopefully it only gets better!

  2. That sounds like an amazing weekend! Taco Bus sounds so fun, I would be all over that!
    I love your Target find, super cute! And I’m glad you’re liking the Barre so far. I’m glad to hear they’re still doing the free trial, I wasn’t sure. I think I’ll keep going for $15/month for awhile, considering that’s less than the cost of one in person class. Why must group fitness/gyms be so expensive? I love going but it’s hard to justify at times.
    I’ll be watching the game tonight too, but for the other QB. He went to my college and I love watching him play, even though it will be kind of odd to root for the Eagles.

    1. Kacy, thanks for intro me to Barre3 online! I’m hooked…did 3 workouts this weekend and even ordered the Barre ball. LOL!

      I can’t imagine paying $35 for ONE class. But I prefer working out at home so this totally works for me. THANK YOU!
