evol = love

by Meghann on March 14, 2012

I tried a new frozen pizza for lunch today.


I bought the evol. Chicken, Spinach & Ricotta Pizza when they were on sale at Whole Foods the other week. I’m always on the lookout for a good frozen pizza and the ingredient list wasn’t bad – I recognized and could pronounce all of them – a good sign.


This afternoon is exactly why I buy random frozen pizzas – our fridge was empty and I was borderline hangry trying to figure out what to eat after waiting too long to start lunch. I saw the pizza. Threw it in the oven. Done.


The personal-sized pie was the perfect size for one. I did burn the crust a tad, but it was still pretty good. I loved the chicken and spinach, but a little more cheese wouldn’t have hurt. ๐Ÿ˜‰


After lunch I had to jet it across town to do something I hadn’t done since last June – I got my hair cut.


Before I got engaged I was growing my hair out to donate it to Pantene Pro-V’s Beautiful Lengths program. The plan was to grow enough to donate 10 inches, then cut it to a nice bob. Right when it was getting to the point of no return, Derek put a ring on it. Suddenly the big question became whether I was still going to donate it or keep it long for the wedding.

The good news is that I still plan to donate it, I’m just delaying it for a year. My new plan is to keep the length where it’s at and chop it all off January 6th, 2013. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Until then, I plan to take care of it a little more with, you know, regular hair cuts and all that jazz. I finally found a hair stylists I LOVE in Tampa and plan to stick with her for the long run. She gave me a nice trim this afternoon and added some layers in to lighten my hair up a bit – it already feels lighter and fresher if that even makes any sense. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I went from the hair salon to the coffee shop next door and had a Chewy Bar with my unsweetened green ice tea.


I stopped at Publix for a much needed grocery run on my way home and had a pear to hold me over until dinner.


Dinner was typical Meghann fare.


The veggies (brussels sprouts, carrots, and red potatoes) were roasted with salt, pepper, and oregano and filled more than half my plate.


And last night’s leftover cornbread was covered in ‘Sloppy Chickpeas’ which was basically a can of chickpeas cooked with onions and carrots, then doused in a homemade sloppy sauce of bbq sauce, ketchup, and mustard.




I’ve been holding on to these babies for far too long.


They look funny because they’ve been in the freezer (am I the only one who believes Girl Scout cookies taste better when frozen?!)



My little brother’s wedding photos are up!

Sorry – didn’t mean to fool ya. I can’t figure out how to embed it, so just click here to see it.

I already have a favorite.


I love Derek’s ‘Superman’ pose. Classic.

Another favorite.


Doesn’t Ashley look gorgeous?!

Last one.

Your hair looks gorg! I hate how I can never get my hair to blow out all fabulous when I try to do it on my own. No hair talent over here.

The wedding photos look great.

I really love your hair long. I think it suits your face so well. But I understand the appeal of longer hair–it’s a constant battle in my mind. I like the way my hair looks long, but hate taking care of it.

Im so stressed out about finding a hair stylist in Tampa. Ive been going to Caleb here in VA for 5 years and I told him Tuesday I might just have to fly home to get my hair done every 2 months. ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, random thing about me-when I was in TN I had a guy doing my hair and then when I was growing up in high school and all of the way through college a guy named Marc in a salon back home did my hair. Ive never had a female stylist and its just a random coincidence. But, now I feel like I only want to go to a male!

Love this post for so many reasons! Your pizza, dinner and HAIR look amazing. So do the wedding photos and you in them. Will your wedding party do a few running shots during your pics? My bff got (re) married last summer and we all had to sprint over grass in 85-degree heat for several shots which about killed me!

Yes! Gotta make this sucker last.

13 Lindsay @ Running the Windy City March 15, 2012 at 8:45 am

I’m jealous of your long hair! I chopped mine off (bob length) about a year and a half ago, it’s taken so long to grow back!

I love when people donate their hair. It takes some commitment to grow that out that I don’t have. Do you have enough hair to donate now? Or does it still need to be longer?
I agree though, I’d keep it long for the wedding too. Then, new husband, new haircut! ๐Ÿ™‚

15 Meghann March 15, 2012 at 9:22 am

Technically I have enough hair to donate now. At least I did before I had it trimmed yesterday. But yes! – new husband, new haircut. ๐Ÿ™‚

I LOVE frozen tagalongs! That is the only way I have liked to eat them since I was a kid.
Totally understand the hair thing. I am ‘working’ on growing mine out too, but I keep chopping it off right as it gets past my shoulders. I had a great hair stylist in Riverview, but then she quit and went back to school! Care to share who your new hairstylist love is in Tampa?

19 Meghann March 15, 2012 at 10:44 am

Stephanie at the Aveda Level Salon in Hyde Park – she was recommended by a friend and is amazing. If you go, tell them I sent you ๐Ÿ™‚

20 Kelley March 15, 2012 at 10:51 am

Your hair looks awesome- definitely keep your stylist!

Your hair looks beautiful! I’m doing the exact same thing with my hair, growing it out to donate it. The last couple of inches always seem to take forever to grow. Did you know that it takes 6 – 8 ponytails to make one wig?? So crazy. They will appreciate your donation very much.

Oh and Thin Mints are definitely better frozen. Crushed on top of vanilla ice cream ๐Ÿ™‚

wow that picture of ashley is absolutely stunning! she is truly a beautiful, glowing bride!

Frozen GS cookies are the BEST! I’m finishing up the last of my 2011 stash before this year’s get delivered in a couple weeks.

I’ve seen that pizza (and flatbreads) at WF and have been wondering about them. Good to know they taste as good as the packaging looks. I love the design of the box and I’m a sucker for a ricotta/spinach combo.

Pantene Pro-Vโ€™s Beautiful Lengths only require 8 inches, so you may of been in the clear.
