It Just Keeps Coming

So who on the East Coast is ready for more natural disaster related fun this weekend?!?

I know I can’t wait to break out my Hurricane 40s and party like it’s 2003.  Oh, that’s how we celebrated Hurricane Isabel back then, as cute little college Freshmen.  Living in a basement dorm room during the worst hurricane to hit Virginia in a long time was really fun.  I got to watch the water rise and rise outside my window until it stopped just below the actual frame. Fun times!

No but seriously, I know of a few people getting married this weekend and I feel so bad for them.  I would cry, especially because I think they were originally scheduled for outdoors.  At least I hear rain on your wedding day is good luck, so a hurricane must be super lucky!

Anyway, on to yesterdays activities.  I did a full body weights workout during lunch yesterday, which has left me somewhat sore today and the reason I was contemplating eating my arm off at 3:30 yesterday afternoon.  Sadly, dinner was extremely far away because as soon as I walked in the door after work, the roommates and I were back out again to go look at bridesmaids dresses.  Our bride wants to order them all together, so we needed to decide on final styles and sizes, which ended up being a disaster.

We went to a different store to see if they had more of a selection and the lady was so rude! Once she found out we wouldn’t be ordering from there she was completely unhelpful and left us to sort through the rack of dresses ourselves.  Then she tried to tell us it would be $20 to get measured without ordering anything.  Um no thanks, I have measuring tape, I’ll do it myself.  She was awful, the three of us left so annoyed, but at least we were all able to decide on final dresses.  Anyway, don’t ever go to Katherine’s Bridal in Alexandria.  The worst.

Finally, here’s the other recipe I said I was going to post yesterday.  It’s not really a recipe, but more of an improvement of the egg bake I made last week that wasn’t quite right.  This turned out so much better and I am loving it.

Bacon and Veggie Egg Bake

Ingredients
Olive Oil
1 Pepper
3/4 Large Onion
1 clove garlic
8 pieces of bacon
8 eggs
Salt and Pepper

Directions
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut up the 8 pieces of bacon into bite size pieces and cook in a large skillet.  I use scissors and just cut the bacon over the pan.  While the bacon is cooking, chop your pepper and onion into thin slices, and dice some garlic  Once the bacon is cooked, transfer it to a plate covered with a paper towel, and place another paper towel on top to absorb the grease.  Drain the remaining bacon grease out of your pan, give it a quick wipe down with a paper towel, add a little olive oil, and throw in your peppers, onions, and garlic.  While those are sauteing together, mix your eggs in a big bowl and add a little water.  Grease the bottoms and sides of a casserole dish with some butter or non-stick spray, and combine all of the ingredients together.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and then pop it into a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.  Super easy, and now I have breakfast for the whole week.

Another BBQ Night

Soooo you can pretty much just read last Tuesday’s post again for today, because the Monday night’s were exactly the same.  It was 90 degrees again here yesterday, so of course the roommates and I once again broke out the grill.  The menu was exactly the same and the food just as delicious.  Steak, peppers, onions, and shrimp (which I don’t eat because the texture weirds me out).

The only difference was our friend Will came over to hang out with us while we sat around outside.  The four of us are heading up to NYC on Friday night, and we were trying to brainstorm some weekend plans.  Pretty much the only thing we came up with was eating pizza, bagels, and drinking.  I’m sure the rest will fall into place.

Will just got back to the States after spending the last few years over seas with the army, so he’s looking forward to having some fun.  And to seeing pretty ladies, seriously, I’ve never seen a guy more distracted when a decent looking woman comes on the TV.  It’s actually pretty funny.

Last night’s workout was a quick 35 minutes on the elliptical followed by some push-ups and ab work on a bosu ball.  I was in a hurry to get home to the nice weather and food, so it was a short but sweet sweat session.  I’m thinking about trying out spin tonight, if I can make it to the gym in time for the 5:30 class.  The weather here is nightmarish today though, so traffic is going to suck a big one.  We’ll see what happens.

Also my right contact lens is seriously pissing me off.  The damn thing won’t stay clear for more than 3 seconds at a time.  I suppose I should find an eye doctor down here and get a new pair, huh?  Blaaaah.  Well, happy Tuesday!
