No March Madness for me- I’ve never really gotten into the whole college football or college basketball. That could be due to the fact that I went to a small liberal arts college that did not have football or compete at any high level. Shalane is amazing! Go Team USA!
I am having salmon with a side of tiny little yell potatoes:-)

I am only into it because Billy is ha:) UM…your dinner sounds incredible!

I like wheat thins with chicken salad

Reply

Okay, I need to try that…sounds so good!

Reply

Me, too!!

Congrats Jenn! My hubby has the bbq warming up right now making burgers too!
I bet some guacamole would be pretty delish with the wheat thins.

Reply

What time should we be over for dinner;)

I love March Madness! It’s one of my favorite times of year, second only to the MLB playoffs ;) BTW that game was CRAZY towards the end!

I like hummus with my Wheat Thins, but I bet Laughing Cow cheese would be awesome. Can’t help you with the keyboard because I think mine is just as bad…

The hubs and I are about to grill some cheddar brats! DELISH!

Reply

YUM…that sounds so good. HA, why must we eat and type at the same time:) Hope you are enjoying the games!

Reply

Enjoy your burgers tonight ( I know Billy has to grill some up for you–you can always pull the baby mama card!).

Wheat thins and PB always. But, I find I can’t stop munching on that snack–so good. Have a fund night!

Reply

HAHAH I use that card way too often. PB with wheat thins…you are a thinker:) LOVED your running ninja outfit on instagram today!

Reply

I have not watched a single game.

I like Wheat Thins by themselves. I don’t buy them very often. Not really a favorite of mine.

Not sure what dinner will be. Just me tonight. Probably something along the snacks line vs. a real meal.

Reply

That is exactly what I do when I am alone for dinner or 10 bowls of cereal:) ENJOY!

Reply

That is my VERY favorite snack! Have you tried the Wheat Thin Toasted Chips? Even better :).

Reply

I can only IMAGINE ever breaking 2:00 on a half marathon, much less getting it in less than ONE HOUR!!!

I had cereal for dinner tonight. I needed something light after eating my weight in bad-for-me food all weekend. Also, I eat Wheat Thins totally by themselves, by the handful!

That snack looks great I’ll have to check it out! I’ve been into march madness a little bit because IU was in the sweet sixteen. Now that there out I’m not sure if I’ll keep watching. What’s your favorite team?

Reply

one of my all time favorite snacks…Special K mutigrain crackers, light swiss laughing cow, turkey pepperoni, all stacked, give it a try girl, you may fall deeper in love :)

Reply

Wheat thins are forever linked in my mind with a block of cream cheese covered in jalapeno jelly. SO GOOD! Is this just a Southern thing?

Reply

Dinner tonight was lots of leftovers … plus salad, raw veggies, and yogurt. Nothing exciting, but gets the job done!! ;)

Reply

Those times are RIDICULOUS

Reply

I’ve actually never had laughing cow – I usually just have crackers with cheddar, unless I bought a more special cheese lately.

Reply

No march madness for me. Not a fan. I am defiantly a fan of Dara. Great video clip.
Sunday dinner was chicken and barley nachos tonight and I ate way too many of them. But I ran a half marathon today so it was ok.

Reply

i am LOVING march madness..and winning my office pool! thank you kansas for that :) haha

i love wheat thins….plain, with jelly, with NUTELLA, with cheese…they are just simply amazing!

Reply

I love, love laughing cow cheese. You should try it on delicious hard rolls from costco. You will fall in love.

Sunday dinner = ward potluck. So thankful I didn’t have to cook.

Happy Sunday to you!

Reply

I actually looove march madness. I have since I was young and always get into it. It is pretty much the only time I enjoy watching sports on tv. Lots of upsets this year!

My Sunday night dinner was delicious Mexican food with my aunt and uncle visiting from NJ. Great time and great food.

Reply

DANG that is fast!!

I love wheat thins–they’re our fav car trip snack :) With any kind of cheese really! Have fun watching!

Reply

That has totally been my go to snack for months, it is sooooo yummy! Love the pack they sell at Costco!!

Reply

Oh I haven’t watched any March Madness, basketball has never captured my attention, perhaps because I’ve never played basketball myself.

Congrats to Jenn!

Wow Shalane is just unbelievable, congrats to her on an amazingly fast race!!

Reply

Oh my gosh, the video was very motivating..
I feel like a couch potato now lol
It amazes me that a person can run that distance in under an hour, there are some amazing people out there!

This is really the first year I can remember actually watching a bunch of basketball games during March Madness. Usually I just feel annoyed that it interrupts some of my scheduled programs.

Go Wildcats!

Reply

Oh man I forgot how good Wheat Thins are…I need an assortment of dips for it: cream cheese, peanut butter, hummus and guacamole….oh and u may as well throw in some salsa :)

Reply

This is hilarious! I was walking through the store yesterday and saw laughing cow cheese, and I have NEVER bought it before, but for some reason my preggo belly was telling me to, “Buy it!” and it was exactly what i was craving!! I nearly at the whole package in one day!!!!! ;)

Reply

Can’t wait for Dara Torres Part 3!!! So motivating!!!!

Reply

Awesome video!

Reply

Was’t that game AMAZING!!! I’m grew up in Kansas, so clearly I was very happy with the outcome. During the game, I think I was embarrassing my bf cause we were at a quiet bar and yet I kept making a scene whenever KS scored. haha.

Reply

Yum, I LOVE skinny cow cheese. Especially the blue cheese one, it really has a good flavor! I put those babies on some melba toast when I’m craving some cheese. In college we had a Costco size of them in our tiny fridge. Like crazy people, we even called the company to ask for free samples that how much we were obsessed (to our disappointment, they don’t give out free samples).

But they are yummy!!!

I love Dara Torres.. which I’m pretty sure I’ve told you like a million times- but I watched that video last week and she is probably my biggest inspiration. She is so badass! I do like wheat thins- but I would probably say I like them with peanut butter or almond butter.. though add come cream cheese to that and it’s pretty yummy too!

Reply

talk about running FAST! that’s crazy!
wheat thins with cream cheese is so good (and probably not very healthy) lol.. i haven’t eaten it in years but thanks for reminding me :)

Reply

I was excited for .001 of a second because I thought I won. :( Congrats Jenn! I love Laughing Cow with Wheat Thins. Try it with the Chipotle Laughing Cow. Life changing!

Reply

Wheat thins and jalapeno pimento cheese from Whole Foods is my favorite snack in the whole wide world! Unfortunately it isn’t the most healthy snack but I have tried them with the laughing cow wedges and they are pretty good too…and A LOT less calories :)

Reply

DEFINITELY a March Madness fan, who were you cheering for?? I go to KU and come from a family that did, so naturally we all went nuts last night when we won!

Reply

I haven’t watched much March Madness this year – I didn’t even fill out a bracket! Who have I become?!

Sunday night dinner for me was bean burrito wraps – I used lettuce wraps instead of tortillas. It was awesome!

I used to dip wheat thins into pimiento cheese – it was one of my favorite snacks growing up. Now I’ll dip them into anything – I love dips. Laughing cow is awesome – have you tried the new cinnamon roll flavor???? I found it yesterday and it completely rocked my world!

Reply

She’s been my inspiration since I was a little girl swimming. She’s ripped, beautiful and the definition of talent and dedication.

I am not happy that UNC lost.. I hope Kansas loses to OSU next week or I lose my bracket bet with the boyfriend-I hate losing!

Reply

Mike eats wheat thins by the box full with hummus, but I can’t really get into them.

Reply

Go KU!!! Kansas all the way.
We eat wheat thins with salsa.

Reply

I actually like Wheat Thins with guacamole, sorta random but good!

Reply

Oh em gee, I bought a little tub of the light Alouette cheese over the weekend [spinach artichoke flavor] and just want it eat it by the finger-full! It reminds me of a whipped cream cheese mixed with spinach artichoke dip… SO GOOD!

Reply

I wasn’t watching, just checking my bracket standings. I started out strong, but am going to end in deadlast. :(

I love my wheat things: 1. plain, 2. sharp cheddar cheese, 3. velveta & rotel questo, 4. cheese and summer sausage

We (me and my roommate) always grill on Sunday night with our neighbors. This week I had chicken kabobs, asparagus, with a side of baked potato salad. so delish!

Reply

Okay we are definitely on the same page with the wheat thins and laughing cow cheese, it has become my latest snack addiction too! lol
Great minds think alike!
