Happy MLK day. Hopefully you get the day off or a low-key day. :)…
I’ve been on the go traveling, and with that comes a lot of eating out….
A weekend away with your family is a recipe for instant nourishment.
That type of nourishment too. 😉
I spent the weekend in Virginia Beach with my parents. Our trip is definitely making my Monday marvelous today.
Besides great meals and beach time, we managed to get some exercise in as well.
We relaxed on the beach…
and chilled at the pool.
On both days, we had brunch and dinner at some of our favorite restaurants.
And you know we squeezed in a dessert…
Come Sunday, it was time to head back home. Even though our trip was over, the sky was stunning.
I guess you can say I’m eternally optimistic. Optimism really is a choice. If you want to be happier, break down the steps to getting there. Squash negativity.
Have a wonderful Marvelous Monday!
Good morning friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Let’s jump into Marvelous Monday today with Katie.

Marvelous is brunch. Because when is brunch not marvelous.
Marvelous is tubing down the James River on Sunday.
What was marvelous about your weekend?
Have a good one!
Do you ever crave a healthy meal after a weekend of savory comfort foods? My parents and I sure did on Sunday. We were on our way back from a wonderful weekend spent with family attending the Greenbrier Classic when we decided to pull over for a late lunch.
Typically, we like to check out small, non-chain restaurants, however, we all wanted something healthy so we looked no further than good ole’ Ruby Tuesday.
Ruby Tuesday is the one chain restaurant we always love. Enter the salad bar.
Oh, and the delicious biscuits that are served right when we sit down are the perfect appetizer. Their small size makes up for their excess of butter, cheese, and all that divine goodness!
I love restaurants with salad bars because you have the freedom to customize your plates at any time, upping the overall nutritional factor.
Healthy food and time spent with family make for a marvelous Monday!
Here’s a little inspiration that I found this morning over breakfast in Shape magazine:
Question of the day: What’s your favorite chain restaurant?
