Popcorn for Lunch

A little after noon, Ryan and I headed to Boardwalk Bowl for an afternoon of bowling with a bunch of his coworkers!

The bowl-a-thon is a yearly event organized by Ryan’s work to raise money for charity. We had such a good time last year and Ryan and I were happy to show our support and bowl a few games for a good cause.

Ryan is actually a pretty decent bowler. I, on the other hand, am not. I am, however, a decent eater, so I stuck to that at the bowling alley…

I had a little help, but I practically polished off an entire bucket of buttered popcorn during the three hours that we were there. Though I had a tortilla with melted cheese on our way out the door, it wasn’t much food, so I was pretty hungry about 45 minutes into bowling. Luckily the popcorn came to the rescue and inadvertently became my lunch.

Oh, and that guy photo-bombing in the background of my popcorn photo? That would be Rob. He and Ryan were the best bowlers on our team and took their bowling quite seriously by icing down their bowling hands in the beer buckets between rounds.

They’re hardcore. Winking smile

But so am I…

Okay, maybe not. But I did get one strike! Open-mouthed smile 

I also got three gutter balls in a row… which ended up winning me some snazzy Tupperware.

Sometimes it pays to be bad!

After collecting my Tupperware, we headed home and made some banana mocha protein smoothies since buttered popcorn clearly isn’t the most nutritious lunch.

I’m off to run to the grocery store to pick up some hot dog buns for dinner tonight. Ryan’s cousin is coming over to watch the Bulls game with us and we’re grillin’ out!

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far. Have a great Saturday night!

    Hey! You’re a UCF girl so I hope you’re referring to the Chicago Bulls and not the other ones! I am also a terrible bowler but that doesn’t keep me from trying!

    Don’t you just love buttered popcorn…its sooo good but so bad at the same time! I’m a terrible bowler to, sometimes my score is like 40. I still have a good time doing it though!

    If you are interested in a low-sugar protein powder, I recommend NNW Healthy Whey Protein Powder. It is sweetened with Stevia; only 1 gram of sugar per scoop! The ingredient list is minimal, and the brand has a variety of flavors! Chocolate Milk is my favorite.

    OK, now I know what we all need to do on a double date — bowling and beers! Lucas is in a league (he’s not good, though) and we both have shoes (long story) so let me know when y’all want to roll a few frames :)

    Oh mannnn~out of all humility, I can say I’m decent at most physical activities! But bowling is def not one of them! -_-” haha. I say, it’s not a sport b/c I’m prob. being a sore loser kekeke.
