September, is that you?  Aren’t cool 70 degree temps and breezes supposed to accompany you?  What is this 97 degree nonsense?  Also, if you could please keep Hurricane Earl away from my friend’s wedding on Friday, that would be great.  Kthxbye.

I kicked September off with a bang and stopped at Starbucks this morning for a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Funny though, I ordered a non-fat and the barista asked if I wanted whipped cream.  Wouldn’t that pretty much defeat the purpose of ordering non-fat milk?  Thank you for asking, but no I would not like whipped cream.  With the first sip of pumpkiny delight, I was whisked back to memories of football tailgates, pumpkin picking, beerfests, Uggs, and sweaters.  It was fantastic.

Last night, I finally got back into my routine and hit the gym for a run.  Since I’ll be traveling again right from work tomorrow, I really needed to get a run in last night and another one tonight.  I did 5 miles at a 9:05 pace and felt relatively comfortable during it.  Well, that’s not completely true I hit mile 3 and realized I had to pee, so I quickly darted to the bathroom and knocked out the last 2.  Also, thanks for all the positive feedback about the 5k I signed up for.  You all really boosted my confidence!

Dinner last night was probably one of the most random things you will ever see me eat.  Just about the only things in my fridge were a zucchini and corn, so I made a veggie wrap with some humus and mac and cheese.


mac and cheeeeese

The wrap was good, but I actually would have enjoyed it more without the humus.  And well, the mac and cheese speaks for itself.  That’s always delicious.  I wrapped my night up with the season finale of Make it or Break it and The Rachel Zoe Project.  A pretty good Tuesday if I say so myself.

Tonight will involve another run and packing for my long weekend in DC.  I’m still trying to decide what to wear.  I originally planned to wear the same dress I wore to the wedding last weekend, but after it left cuts on my rib cage and me looking like a pregnant lady in some pictures I’m rethinking it.  Sigh.  Not that I have anything else to wear, so I’ll probably end up wearing it.

Ok, happy Wednesday all.  So close to the long weekend!

“I Die”

Happy Wednesday friends, how are you all today?  I’m doing just fine, and a little more excited about Wednesday than usual because I’m having dinner with two of my girlfriends after work.  My friend Michelle got engaged a month ago, and we finally have the time to go out and celebrate.  There’s a bottle of champagne chilling in my work fridge as I type this :).

Last night was yoga Tuesday, and I’m starting to feel like one of the regulars.  My sister liked it better too because she felt less lost this time.  Like I said before, the instructor is kind of hard to hear and understand so if you know what’s coming, it makes it a little easier.  I tried to zone out and not think about anything during yoga, but thoughts of dinner kept creeping into my head.  By the time I got home, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Zucchini and Squash Lasagna.

Dinner was prepared and in the oven relatively quickly, but then comes the worst part.  Waiting for it to cook.  That might have been the longest 35 minutes of my life.  Soon enough, the wait was over and dinner was served with some red wine and garlic mozzarella bread.

I didn’t think it was possible, but it was even better this time around.  The sauce was better, the veggies were better, it stayed together better.  I give myself an A+ for sure.  I even went so far as to say that I will never make lasagna with pasta again.  The bf shed a tear for his beloved carbs.

Some of my favorite shows were on last night, and I wanted to throw something at the TV when they ended Pretty Little Liars the way they did.  I also watched Rachel Zoe, and one of my favorite thing about the show is her little phrases like “I die” and “ba-na-nas”.  Haha, it makes me laugh.

Alright, well I hope everyone enjoys their Wednesday.  Half-way to the weekend!

Fun House Mirrors

Last night was my third week of yoga class, and I’m really enjoying it.  I like how every class is a little different, and doesn’t always follow the exact same routine.  My sister came with me for the first time last night, and she said she liked it also.  One thing we both agree on that we don’t like?  The damn mirrors all over the studio!  I swear, they are like fun house mirrors that make you look all distorted because I’m pretty sure my ass isn’t really as big as it looks when I’m standing there in Warrior 2.  Or at least I hope it’s not anyway.

After yoga, my sis and I went home to try to figure out what there was to eat for dinner.  Sadly, it wasn’t much.  I feel like this is a general theme of my refrigerator, it being completely empty.  Luckily we still had two baked potatoes left from Monday night, so we had those, some corn, and some tomato and cucumber salad.  Interesting and random for sure.

After dinner, I relaxed on the couch for the rest of the night with some wine watching shark week, and the ABC Family Tuesday night shows.  Pretty Little Liars has sucked me in somehow, and as a former gymnast I’ve always loved Make it or Break it.  Oh and The Rachel Zoe Project came back last night!  Ever since I saw her in Soho, I’ve been anticipating the return of the show.  Last nights episode was all about this shoot for Harpers Bazaar with Demi Moore.


So cool to watch them shoot with a live giraffe, and those shoes are insane.  I don’t know how anyone stands in them.  Also it looked absolutely freezing that day, so Demi is a champ.

I am so glad it is Wednesday already, I’m going to see the boyfriend this weekend which is exciting.  Other than the one night he randomly came to town, I haven’t seen him since my birthday weekend!  That’s almost three weeks, which is just far too long between visits.  Alright, I hope everyone has a fabulous Wednesday!
