The Best Type of Errands

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Mal and I set out to run a whole bunch of errands today, but, instead, we got sidetracked by outlet shopping. We planned to (quickly) stop at the Wrentham Outlets for a couple of things, but we ended up spending the entire day there. Who are we?!?


Ah, well. It wasn’t the worst way to spend an afternoon! 😉


Obviously, Mal and I didn’t need to go shopping, but we bought a number of items that we’ve been meaning to buy– plus a few that we didn’t. (We’ve already decided to eat a few “pantry meals” this week to even out our spending. :oops:)


Mal and I shopped until the early evening, so, on the drive home, we stopped to grab dinner at Ichiro Sushi in East Milton Square. We were both famished! We never ate lunch! 😯


Hooray for take-out sushi! 😀


Since we were right next door, Mal and I popped into the Fruit Center Marketplace to grab a bottle of wine to go with our sushi dinner. Sunday night + wine = pure relaxation.

For dinner, Mal and I ordered a mix of maki rolls and a tempura veggie and shrimp appetizer. The appetizer was pretty good, but when isn’t tempura tasty? I also made myself a side salad with Goddess dressing drizzled on top.


For the rolls, we ordered Spicy Tuna Maki, Boston Maki (crabstick, salmon & cucumber), and Christmas Maki (shrimp tempura roll covered with tuna, avocado & tempura flakes).


The sushi rolls were just so-so. I loved the Christmas Maki and Mal loved the Boston Maki, but the Spicy Tuna Maki was disgusting. It was mushy and flavorless, which was a total bummer because it’s usually my favorite roll. Wah. 😕

The wine that we purchased was also kind of blah. It just didn’t have much flavor. Even still, it was fun to get take-out and drink wine with my hubby this evening. We had a nice little Sunday together! 😀

While Mal and I ate dinner, Murphy watched intensely for table droppings. Look at those eyes!


Mal and I are having a Jersey Shore marathon this evening. We’re midway through Season 1 and it’s ridiculous! So bad, yet so good! We can’t stop watching!

Night, guys! 😀



  1. I can’t believe you went to the outlets on a Sunday. You are brave.
    I had sushi takeout last night too. It was quite a “Situation”…..sorry, had to do it 🙂

  2. Jersey Shore is a train wreck that you can’t turn away from. Big Brother is exactly the same way! Love them both! 🙂

  3. Even us New Jersey people love watching the Jersey Shore! Although when we watch the show we say “Who talks like that?” “And who dresses like that?” Then we remember…only one cast member is from NJ!

  4. Bad spicy tuna is a travesty! There’s this place in DC that makes the best spicy tuna ever- not gloppy and mayo-y and REALLY REALLY REALLY SPICY! It gets your sinuses flowing in the best possible way 😀
