Come Onnnn Holiday

Well, if my commute this morning is any indication of what traffic will be like later, it’s not looking so bad.  There was absolutely no one on the road and I made great time on my drive in.  Last night however, not so much, but I’ll try to remain positive for right now.

My cross-fit workout ended up getting cancelled yesterday, so instead I did 2.2 miles on the treadmill and the pyramid push-up workout.  I again used the 5k sport training course that simulates hills and was huffing and puffing up that 3% incline.  The 56 push-ups again kicked my ass, and I felt like I had spaghetti for arms for the rest of the day.

I headed home after work to tackle the packing situation for my trip to PA, and I’m pretty sure I packed my entire closet. I couldn’t decide what I was going to be in the mood to wear, so I brought everything.  I packed 4 pairs of jeans and 2 pairs of leggings for a 4 day trip.  I have problems.  In my packing though, I realized my closet consists mostly of blues and grays, so mom feel free to buy me colorful clothing items for Christmas.

Other things I accomplished last night?  I bought two new bathing suits for my trip in two weeks.  I was only going to get one, but then I remembered I’m going to Vegas in April and a sequins bikini is most definitely necessary.

Tropical Getaway

 

I figure, with those two suits, along with the Tory Burch sandals I scored at a Nordstroms sale not too long ago I am set as far as buying new things.  Now, I just hope they get here on December 5 like VS has promised me.
After I managed to squeeze the last clothing items into my large suitcase, I got around to painting my nails.  I have a new obsession, and it is the OPI Gold Shatter nail polish.  So far I’ve done red and gold, and now purple and gold.
The red and gold combo will absolutely be broken out for Christmas.  Alrighty, I’m off to countdown the hours until I can hit the road! I hope it’s around 2.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Birthday’s and More Birthday’s

So I enjoyed my egg thingy more yesterday for breakfast than I did for dinner on Wednesday.  Then again, I enjoy most things more when the flavors have had a day or two to meld together.  Either way, next time I make an egg bake, I’ll probably use bacon, because what isn’t better with bacon?

Yesterday was crazy at work.  I have a huge project, that came to me a giant mess, due on Monday.  Throw in a goodbye lunch outing, and a baby shower, and I felt like I was at work for five minutes.  None the less, I still made it out the door on time because I had places to be.

Yesterday was three of my friends birthday’s, and a giant group of us was meeting at Spider Kelly’s in Clarendon to celebrate.  I came bearing a piece of baby shower cake to give to the birthday girl.  None other than my roommate Danielle!

Happy birthday pretty lady!  I hope you had a fabulous time, and continue to have fun this weekend despite my absence.).  I left at 8 after three beers, because I needed to go home and pack for my weekend of fun.

Tonight I’m having dinner with my mom and sister, and I *think* I finally get to meet a hilarious lady I’ve been talking to on Twitter for months now!  Just have to make it through a half day of work first.

What are you all up to this weekend?

Coooooooookies!

So Amy sent me cookies (these cookies, I think, but there was more than choc chips in there), that jerk, because cookies were definitely not part of my “debloat before wedding weekend” plan.  Just kidding Amy, you’re not a jerk.  However, they were amazing, and I tore into the box the second I saw it and stuffed a cookie in my face.  Actually, the eating of the cookie took about 5 minutes because they were the size of my head.  Dear Amy, you rock, thank you for the oreo center surprise.  I gave one to Adrienne also, and then we sat in a cookie coma while the sugar took its hold.  Let’s just call it packing fuel.

Speaking of packing, I am in complete shock that I managed to fit all of my stuff in a carry on bag, and it wasn’t even that difficult.  The hardest thing was trying to find small containers for lotion, shampoo, and conditioner.  Also, I can’t bring a razor on board can I?  I had Dar run out and buy me one last night, because I figured that was a no.  Here’s to hoping nothing gets confiscated.

Another fun fact, I am most definitely the worst girlfriend ever, because I got too distracted by Mad Men last night to shave my legs.  Soooo I plan on doing that after arriving in Wisconsin tonight, uuuh, oops?  Darren didn’t understand why it was so important to have razors on hand for Thursday night, but it’s because I’m lazy, and obsessed with a TV show.

Yesterdays workout was nothing special, 45 minutes on the elliptical while watching Sex and the City.  That’s just one of those shows that I will watch no matter how many times I’ve seen the episode.  I threw in some stretching after, because much to my physical therapists dismay I’ve been slacking on it, and called it a day.

My flight is at 6:01 tonight, and let’s hope that for once this year I’ll take off without an absurd delay, because it is yet to happen.  The weather looks good in both places, so hopefully there are no problems.  Hopefully I’ll check in over the weekend, but I make no guarantees.  See ya from the mid-west!
