MIMM #82 Holiday Party + P.F. Changs Yum!

by Healthy Diva on January 12, 2014




Had a wonderful weekend, wishing all of you did too! I have to say one thing, I am exhausted as ever. Send lots of coffee my way pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Mondays do always seem to be the hardest days for me in the “energy” department, cheers to obsessive amounts of coffee to fix that today!

Enjoy the day, and enjoy my MIMM highlights….

 Friday night, Mike and I had a dinner date night in. We made a yummy shrimp stir fry, was good and simple to make!

I used this stir fry sauce, I was trying to find a lower sodium one, but our store did not have any!




Saturday I went and got my nails done, which was way over due, and needed. I went with a neutral, sparkles too of course.

We had  Mike’s work party Saturday night,  was a little hard getting ready with a very cranky little man…

But eventually I pulled myself together real quick, and just in time because the sitter came two minutes after that!

I went with a classic black dress, can never go wrong with that  ;-)

We had a very good time at the party, lots of great food, and everyone is just so nice at the firm.

I enjoyed some wine, and we chatted all night long with great people. Mike really is blessed to work at such a great place, I am happy he got the job there 2 years ago.

Rocco was in bed already when we got home, we didn’t stay up too late ourselves. I am so glad we have a sitter now when we want to do a date night, or have something going on that we have to attend.

Sunday I went out with my girlfriends for lunch at P.F.Changs, missed it there!

I didn’t know what to wear, but obviously no sweats, haha. I love to dress up, and will take any chance to get all dressed up when I have the opportunity!  Ever since having Rocco, I like to be comfy most days, which means sweats!

I love colorful blazers, they just can make a simple outfit really rock, and jewelry can too.

And I am loving these boots I got  a while ago, they are perfect for a classic black boot!

Lunch was delicious, as always at P.F. Changs!

I ordered a cup of hot and sour soup to start, and tried their seasonal salad….

IMG 1945

Fresh chopped kale, endive, radicchio, crisp apples, grapes, celery, grape tomatoes and candied walnuts tossed in a light miso-lime vinaigrette. The salad was amazing, I need to go back there asap , Mike and I are thinking of going this weekend. The seasonal menu has some great stuff on it!

Other little MIMM highlights, oh just sweet pics…

Happy Monday friends!

Also want to give a VERY Happy Birthday shout out to Mike’s mom today! Happy Birthday Mom/Grandma, we miss you very much, and love you!

I haven’t been to PF Changs in months, but I usually have a really great experience there every time I go. I appreciate when restaurants have a seasonal menu. Love the nails! I’ve never thought to put sparkles on neutral.

Love your nails!!! I’m finally learning to use blazers to dress outfits up and add color. It’s easy but it looks like effort. :)


21 Healthy Diva January 13, 2014 at 6:30 pm

Yes, they are so versatile! :)


22 Gina @ On the Daily Express January 13, 2014 at 10:10 am

35 Ashley @MilesonOats January 13, 2014 at 12:01 pm

FACT: I am jealous of your nails.
FACT: I may or may not copy you once I decide to stop being stingy with money and go get a mani.
FACT: I wish we could grab dinner at PF Changs so I could meet the fabulous Katie in person!
FACT: It’s really creepy I just put that in third person?
FACT: Cutest kid, ever.

Happy Monday girl! :)

Goodness, Rocco looks like a big boy already in some of the pictures. Especially the one below the salad picture [now how’s that for a description of which one I mean ;)?!]. He’s growing so fast! Oh, and in case you ever need a new babysitter I’d happily take the job – can you tell I wish I’d had younger siblings?
Awesome pictures of you, too! Mike’s a lucky husband to have a wife beautiful inside and out :). Happy Monday!


39 Healthy Diva January 13, 2014 at 6:26 pm

Could you be any more sweet?! :)

Thanks love! I hope you had a really great weekend! Happy week ahead! <3


40 Susan January 13, 2014 at 1:45 pm

Glad you had a fun weekend. Glad you enjoyed Mike’s work party, Rocco is precious, great you have a babysitter so you can get out. Counting the hours til Conor will be home. Wish you guys were here and we could all hang out.


41 Healthy Diva January 13, 2014 at 6:26 pm

I hope you had a great weekend too! Oh, I wish! I know one day we will meet! xo
