So, I have a few more clues about Mal’s surprise:
- He said he planned an “activity” for me.
- I need to be ready to go by 5:30 this evening.
- Mal suggested meeting up with Dave and Marie for drinks after the “activity.” (Perhaps this is part of his plan?)
Ahhhhh! I have no idea what to expect! I’m so excited!!!
After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a Body Pump class. (I went up to 28 pounds on the triceps track today! I’m telling ya, I’m a beast! 😉 ) When I got home, I showered-up and then snacked on the last couple of pieces of watermelon.
Then, it was time to get a manicure. (I splurged for my b-day! ;-)) Thanks to some wonderful recommendations from my Twitter friends, I picked lilac for the color of my nails. I would have never thought to choose this color, but I am so glad that I did. It’s so fun! 😀
After my manicure, it was time for lunch! I whipped up a veggie burger on a toasted sesame roll with tomato and red onion on top.
On the side, I made a lentil salad with penne, feta, tomato, and red onion.
It was a very satisfying meal.
Like always, I craved something sweet after lunch, so I got a little creative in the kitchen this afternoon. I came up with the most amazing Peanut Butter & Banana Soft Serve that took just minutes to make. And, the best part: it only requires 3 ingredients!
Peanut Butter & Banana Soft Serve
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 heaping spoonful of peanut butter
- Splash of soy milk
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Grab a spoon and enjoy! 😀
Omg, I LOVE THISSSSS!!! I think the only thing that would make it better is some Reese’s Pieces thrown into the mix. I’m seriously considering making another batch of this stuff. Maybe as an afternoon snack? 😉

White On Rice
You guys know Lynn from The Actor’s Diet, right? Well, she has some exciting news to share! 😀
I’m happy to announce that my movie “White on Rice” has been picked up by Warner Bros. for Cable Video on Demand/Pay-Per-View and online distribution! For those of you who weren’t able to make it during its theatrical release, or at a film festival (where it was often a favorite) I hope you’ll find the time to watch the movie that the San Francisco Chronicle proclaimed would “…wring some laughs out of anyone but the most humor impaired…”
I’m taking Murphy for his long walk of the day and then I need to get ready for my birthday surprise!!
