I Bailed

Well I don’t know about you all, but I am more than ready for this Friday.  This week has felt very long.  You know what else is fun about today?  I’m wearing my new black boots, what do you think?

I really like the fact that the buckle at the top allows you to loosen the boot, since I have massive runners calves and sometimes regular boots are pretty tight around them.  I figure I need to wear these as much as possible in the next few weeks, because boot season is about to end.  At least they were on sale :).

So towards the end of the day yesterday, I really started to talk myself out of my workout.  I was falling asleep sitting up, my ankle was still feeling funky, and I’d woken up with a sore throat.  Yeah, yeah, excuses, excuses.  Anyway, I made a deal with myself that if I didn’t hit any traffic on the way home I’d go.  Well, I hit a lot of traffic, and went right home to change into sweats.  It probably would have been a shitty run anyway given my mood and level of exhaustion.  Instead I made one of my favorite dinners, minus the zucchini plus TJ’s Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausage and went to bed at 9:30.  I woke up this morning feeling a lot better, except my ankle is still feeling weird, and there’s some IT band pain I’m choosing to ignore for the time being.

Tomorrow I have an 8 mile training run scheduled (sore ankle or not), and it will be my longest run of Cherry Blossom training to date.  It’s supposed to hit 60, so I’m actually kind of looking forward to it.  I hope the water fountains along the bike path are turned on by now, because running with something in my hand (like a water bottle) is beyond my coordination skills.  No seriously, sometimes I can’t even run without kicking myself on the inside of the leg.

Now, the biggest dilemma of the day.  What should I have for lunch?

  1. Subway
  2. Panera
  3. Cosi
  4. Noodles and Co
  5. Something from the cafeteria

Shopping Saturday

Ever since moving to Virginia in November, there’s been something noticeably missing from my life.  Starbucks, and my bank account is sort of happy about the fact that I am no longer making a $5 daily withdraw from it.  Despite the fact that I haven’t been to Starbuck’s in months, my coffee intake has increased substantially.  You see, we have a coffee maker of our own, and buy coffee in bulk, and with my new addiction to Coffee Mate Cinnamon Bun creamer, I can’t get enough.  Example?  I’m on my third cup of the morning already.  I think I need an intervention, I buy the containers of creamer two at a time because I go through it so quickly.  It’s seriously amazing.

The roommates are off to a wedding today, and after I drop them off I’m heading to the gym for a long run and some weights.  Probably.  Then I plan on heading to the mall, doing some shopping, maybe get a mani/pedi and relaxing.  It’s going to be delightful.  My main shopping stop is Sephora, but I’m sure I”ll end up venturing into a few other places a long the way.  I am a shopping addict, I’ll admit it.  Speaking of shopping addict, here are some of the things I ordered from Victoria’s Secret last week.

I got the shoes in the nude color shown in the front, and the short dress in a pink color.  Obviously I look exactly like the models in both dresses :).  Or not even remotely a little bit, but whatever. Confession, I may actually be on the verge of purchasing a pair of black boots from Steve Madden right now, I told you I have a shopping problem.  Happy Saturday!

Roommate Night

So last night, was a good night.  Thanks for all the nice comments again yesterday, you guys are the best and really helped cheer me up.  I got home from work, just as the freezing rain/snow was starting to fall and found the roommates doing something with a chicken.  The sink was running full pressure, and an entire chicken was sitting in a pot under it.  I ignored the scene for a minute while I poured myself a vodka drink, and then inquired as to what the hell was going on.  Apparently that chicken (our dinner) was still frozen and they were trying to remedy the situation.  I offered to get my blow dryer, since it’s pretty effective in defrosting poultry but they said they had it under control.  Fine with me, as I was more than happy to recline on the couch with my drink in front of the fire.

I drank a lot of vodka, and then a lot of wine, and the three of us enjoyed a dinner of mashed potatoes, roasted chicken, and broccoli.  Yes, I do have a headache today and sadly we didn’t get enough snow to keep me home.  But it sure did look pretty when I was driving in this morning.

Yes, I am taking pictures while driving.  I’m a risk taker like that.  In other news, look what arrived on my front porch last night just in time for the snow!

Love them, they are comfy and keep my feet toasty warm and dry.  Because of last nights snow, Dani’s friend Emily came and crashed at our house after work instead of driving back home to Maryland.  This is exciting because of where she works and what she brought us.

A whole box full of delicious Georgetown Cupcakes.  I may or may not have eaten a Red Velvet one for breakfast.  Thanks Emily!  So it’s Wednesday already, huh?  Good, I’m more than ready for the weekend to be here.  So unless you live in Florida, I hear it snowed where you are last night.  How much did everyone get?
