current obsessions: of the food & beverage variety.

Hello lovelies! 

So I have told you before that we are in a "temporary" office, which thank the good Lord is changing in about 2 weeks! I am excited to do a fun "new office" post, complete with my new PinkLouLou office redesign. So pumped.

Anyhoo, so currently we are out in the scariest part of town, like ever, and there is NOTHING around us. I haven't been to the grocery store since probably 2010, so I have been having to find SOMETHING over here to eat for lunch on the reg.

Enter Zaxby's. 


I have become obsessed with this salad they have. OBSESSED. 

Loulou readers, meet the Zaxby's blue salad. {buffalo style, sans onions} and topped with FF ranch. {insert angel chorus}. It's ultra fab, promise. 


The only other acceptable place to eat over here is Wendys. I have been addicted to their baked potato {but I use spray butter} and side salad with FF ranch. Also, the bomb.com ladies. 

 

Thirdly, although this has nothing to do with work lunches (sadly) I have also become obsessed with Skinny Girl ritas. Amazing. 
Thanks Brookie for getting me hooked! I would drink these for breakfast if I thought I could get away with it. Actually, I am of the mindset that I would be MORE productive at work if I had a cocktail to start my day with. Just sayin'. 

We are halfway through the work week girls!

I was introduced to Zaxby's when I went to Alabama last year and LOVED IT!! Sadly we do not have them here in VA. =(

I'm with you on having a cocktail first thing in the morning, one day it may become acceptable, hopefully :)

I love Skinny Girl Magaritas! And Wendy's salads and potatoes too! I've never heard of Zaxby's but the salad looks delicious! Yum! XOXO

Laura said...

Oh I looooove Zaxby's "zalads!" I get the Blue but with no chicken (vegetarian over here) and with honey mustard dressing. To die for!

I've been dying to try the Skinnygirl cocktails! I love Bethenny Frankel and margaritas equally :)

agalandherdog said...

I'd definitely be more productive with a cocktail!

Katie said...

So you pack your spray butter in your..let me guess..pink and black cooler or lunchbox? LOL or do you keep it at the office on the reg? I get the same thing from Wendys too but am a frequent veggie-sub from Subway kinda gal lately. xoxoxo :)

There are so many restaurants that haven't made their way to the West Coast! :-( I see commercials for Ruby Tuesday that look awesome, and when I looked up locations, closest one is 300 miles away!

Girl, I love me some Zaxby's! I could eat there all the time. I have not tried the skinny girl cocktails, but I need to STAT!

A Wedding Story said...

What is this Zaxby's you speak of? Never have I seen one but oh yum it sounds good!!

Mindi said...

you talked about Skinny girl margaritas soo much that I asked the local manager (who has their accounts at the bank I work for) to order it for me. I LOOOOVE it!! her distributor said it wasn't good but I LOVE it! My only thing is I like the salt on the glass so I add it before I pour it in my glass :) thanks for recommending it :)

Rach said...

I think I need to try these skinny girl margaritas when I am allowed to drink!

Erica said...

We don't have a Zaxby's here, but that food look yummy.

Married...with a Pup said...

I have not tried the Skinny Girl cocktail yet! I'm going to buy it for my friend this weekend and hope to taste it then ; )

Courtney Crocker said...

So jealous!! When my hubby played ball in NC we went to Zaxby's ALL the time. I LOOOOVED it! I'm in Denver now and we def don't even have anything close to it :(

I love the Skinny Girl 'Ritas too!! I love Bethenny... she cracks me up!

Jamie said...

I LOVE the blue salad! I think that's what I might go grab for supper :)

Sophie P said...

Looks delish! I've NEVER been to a wendy's because I've never ventured state side, oooo maybe I should??!!! Hope you're well gorgeous girly XXX

Hayley said...

Skinnygirl Rita's are the best!! Doncha' just love Bethenny?

Jessica said...

I have been wanting to try the Skinny Girl Marg for everrrr... glad you like it!

Beth said...

Did you ever post where we can find the adorable cooler you mentioned a few posts ago? Would be great for the Skinnygirl.

Lindsey said...

For some unknown reason, I still have yet to try the bottled Skinny Girl. I really need to get on it. I love Wendy's baked potato - the sour cream and chive one minus the chives. You are so smart for using the spray butter! I always add bacon bits to mine, the fat free kind. YUMM-O! I love any post about food. I'm a fatty!

Lp said...

I absolutely love our Zaxby's here in Oxford! Soo good! Comfort food is the best!

Jill said...

Is your sketch office on New Circle near Broadway/Newtown? If so...girl, I'm in the area. You wanna talk scurry location...my office. We should do lunch, haha. Anyway I've never had Zaxby's but that salad kinda sounds like my speed...

Samantha Elyse said...

Yay!! Not only do I love love love this beverage but I love Bethany too! Did you happen to see last nights episode? So amazing to see what her small idea turned in to!

Tiffany said...

Cannot wait to see photos of the Pink Lou Lou decorated office! :)

I've been dying to try SkinnyGirl margs! Gonna have to hit up the store this weekend!

Becca said...

I looooove Zaxby's salad! I have never tried that one but I just might have to (today!). My friend swears by the Skinny Girl marg but I think it tastes to bitter and I can totally taste the fake sugar. Not that fake sugar bothers me what with the gazillion Diet Cokes that I drink a day but for some reason... the bitterness and fake sugar combo just don't suit my fancy. Maybe I need to give it another try!

The Four Fays said...

You sound like you are in my old neck of the woods. ;D I used to LOVE Zaxby's...and that same salad. Yum! Oh...and Bethenny Frankel is SUCH a kick in the pants...so I'm not sure why I've yet to try Skinny Girl. You've inspired me! Have a great week, sweet girl. <3 DaniFay

Tiffany said...

O my word the girl I babysat for in Florida last week got me hooked on Skinnygirl Margarita's! We drank them at night (after the kiddo's went to bed) and I became obsessed! I am loving them!

JMB said...

THANK YOU for reminding me that I need to buy some spray butter next time at the grocery!! I still need to try the Skinny Margs!! You now have me craving a Wendy's a baked potato- they be tha besssst!!

Courtney said...

I was just thinking about trying the Skinny Girl Margs this weekend...so glad you liked it. I know most of my calories come from wine. Maybe this is a better alternative, or give up on alcohol entirely but I refuse lol :) LOVE YOUR BLOG!
