The Bunker

by Meghann on April 14, 2011

Tampa Coffee Shop adventure number 4 (5?) – The Bunker in Ybor.

Cute. Fun. Quiet. And Free Wifi!

One complaint – high tables. Otherwise, loved! :)

I bunkered down (ha!) at The Bunker this afternoon and was able to get a few hours of work done in the quiet atmosphere.

I think I’m starting to have a taste for iced coffee. Regular coffee is blah, but iced coffee is pretty good. Especially with milk and hazelnut syrup.

Snack:

A Sweet Potato Cookie from a local health market. It was more cakey than cookie, but that didn’t matter. It was filling and sweet – just what I needed before yoga.

Loved the pecan. :)

I returned to Evolation Yoga this afternoon for their 90 minutes Hot Yoga class. The class was part of my Passport to Prana Pass and I liked having the chance to try another type of class at the studio.

It was a Hatha based Hot Yoga class and still a little slow for my taste. I’m definitely a flow-er! :) We held a pose, rested, held a pose, etc. It was relaxing, but not what I was looking for. I would return for another free class, but not shell out the $$ for a membership. Le sigh.

After yoga I had no idea what to make for dinner. I had these Frito Lays Dip Creations Foodbuzz sent as part of their Tastemaker program.

That I thought would be good on roasted veggies (parsnips, okra, and mushrooms)

It’s so sad how much veggies shrink when roasted. :(

They were good on their own, but I decided to switch gears and add them to pasta with some pasta sauce and shrimp.

Adding the Ranch Coated veggies to the pasta dish may not have been my smartest idea. The flavors didn’t mix with the pasta sauce at all and led to competing bites in my mouth. Eh.

But, now I know. And I won’t be making that mistake again. :)

For kicks – Derek’s pasta dish versus mine.

Can you see a difference? ;)

For dessert I had a VitaTop muffin with a serving of coffee ice cream.

Derek and I have a fun project tonight.

Whose ready to clean?!?! ;)

Good Night!

We’re Going to Get Dirty

April 14, 2011

Are you ready to get dirty? Fun Fact: When Kelly and I were in college we thought it would be fun to go ‘mudding’ with our friends. We rode on the back of four wheelers through the backwoods of Tallahassee and had a blast powering through mud pits, dirt roads, and everything else imaginable out more »

Audiobooks Rule

April 14, 2011

Goooooodddddd Morning. Rise and shine! It’s swimming time. Err…. Scratch that. 5:30 came and 5:30 went. Unfortunately, I was asleep and missed it. Dratz. There’s always tomorrow. Or this evening. Though, I’m feeling yoga later today… Anyways. I went for a run instead. Four miles out and back. I’m in the last few chapters of more »
