Happy Saturday to you all! I am a little late in posting today, but I have been quite busy today so far!
Being that I was not so smart and accidentally made a non-work day to go from 1 AM-4pm, I did not have a job yesterday! I woke up and realized it, but I couldn’t do anything to fix it! That’s ok, though, because that meant I got to spend the day with Aaron! He works 9-80’s and has every other Friday off, which happened to be yesterday.
I woke up at about 6:30, and got started on my workout for BBB around 7:30. Oh Em Gee! That workout was brutal! I completed each ladder twice, and had no energy left for cardio. I ended up doing 120 burpees! All I could think of after that was something cold to eat for breakfast, which happened to be a smoothie!
Shortly after I finished that, Aaron woke up and we decided we wanted to go to Eat ‘n Park for their brunch (it was around 11:00). By the time I sat down and ordered (oh, like an hour after I finished my smoothie), I was STARVING! Tina’s workout kept my metabolism firing away all day yesterday. Within an hour of eating a meal, I was starved again. I put a call out on the FB page, and it seemed we all thought the same!
I was a little let down by it. The omelet didn’t have much on the inside, and my home fries were barely cooked. I like them toasted, baby!
Aaron ordered the breakfast smiley, which included way too much food! Haha However, I found out he eats his dippy eggs in a weird way!
Does anyone else eat them this way? I found it pretty strange, and not sure I would ever do that!
We came home and had some extra time before leaving again, so what’s a girl to do? Paint her nails!
This happens to be my collection of just my winter nail polish. I have another huge bag with summer colors such as bright pinks and oranges!
Aaron and I left to head to the doctors to get my stitches removed, and then wound up crashing on the couch for a short nap.
Quite ecstatic to get my stitches out!
We actually had to wait around for a while because my pathology reports didn’t come back yet. They let me leave and assured me they would call when they were faxed over. I was nervous about one mole that had changed dramatically in shape and color over the past 6 months, so I really wanted to hear they were ok. Within 10 minutes of leaving, the nurse called and said they were abnormal and bad, but that they removed all the cells they needed to and I was safe! Huge stress relief!
My mom ended up cooking a yummy meal of Shrimp Alfredo, which I, obviously, devoured because I was starving again. The rest of the night we watched the Penguin’s play and win!
I have been busy! I woke up and completed a 30 minute run on the treadmill. It felt great, so hopefully I’ll get that up soon for you all to try! I hurried up and ate a smoothie because nothing else was sounding good to me! After showering and getting ready pretty fast, I went to hang out with my friend, Jen, and her 2 year old, Landen.
I worked with Jen a few years ago, and we have been friends ever since. Neither of us work at the same place anymore, but we have stayed in close contact and she lives nearby! I try to get over there frequently to catch up and play with Landen, but it doesn’t always happen.
Today worked out for both of us so I quickly took her up on the offer and went to hang out! We had the best time catching up, and Landen was the cutest! He immediately came to me and we played the entire time. He pretty much ignored his mom to be with me! I’ll take it!
By the time I left, I was very hungry. I came home and got to work on Quinoa Mac and Cheese. I have never even tried Quinoa before, but after seeing various Mac n Cheese recipes on Pinterest, I decided to come up with my own. That is still cooking in the oven, actually! While that was cooking, though, I snacked on some veggies while I made chocolate chip cookies! My mom and I have to head up to Alfred Angelo tomorrow, which is pretty close to my cousins house who just had a baby. We are going to stop by and thought bringing cookies would be nice! They smell delicious. I might eat one, ok probably like 3.
Now I’m off to (hopefully) eat my lunch, and then get ready for our final marriage class! We are wrapping up our discussion, then heading to church, and having a formal sit down meal!
I hope you all are having a fantastic Saturday! I’ll be back tomorrow!
- Have you used Quinoa? I think I’m pretty late to this phase, so tell me some of your favorite recipes!
- Am I the only one who has that much nail polish? Please tell me no, or Aaron might make me throw some out!
