Day 669

I never realize how depleted my energy is until I come home and try to do things after dinner.  Nine times out of ten I'm on the couch asleep by 9:30 or 10:00.  So, obviously I'm tired, but this stinks for helping me to get things done around the house (and ready for my party)!

Day 668

On the road today for about 4 hours.  Naturally, it was unseasonably warm (about 60 degrees) and we were in a moving vehicle.  We enjoyed the sunshine, though!

Day 667

I feasted on Olive Garden's tasty foods tonight.  Mmm, mmm good!

Day 666

Headed to Meijer to pick up supplies to make dinner for new parents, Rachel and David.  After that,  I'm making breakfast for dinner tonight, and then heading to Toledo for a work trip.  I'd better get busy!

Day 665

A Bub's burger in the belly makes for a happy girl, as does time with fun people. :)

A good read.

Day 664

One free 45 minute group exercise class.  Check.
Four free tickets to the Home Show.  Check.
One free massage (with an appointment to another free - even better - massage).  Check.
One back free of "crunchy" muscles and knots.  Check.
I'm feeling good, physically and fiscally.  :) 

P.S. "Crunchy" muscles?!  Yeah, I know.  Gross.

Day 663

I'm making a real effort to avoid the freshly baked cupcakes I just made.  Wait until tomorrow.  Wait until tomorrow!!!  I'm joining this new group exercise class thing at work tomorrow.  Hope it's as fun as I'm thinking it could be. :)  Hope you're all having a great week so far!

OH!  Tonight, I went to Roncalli for Joey's show choir directorial debut.  It was fantastic!  I swear he's a musical whisperer.  He's done such a great job in his first year, I can only imagine what'll happen in the next few years to come.  Good luck in your first competition of the year, Rebel Rhapsody!

Day 662

How did I ever plan a party without Pinterest?

Day 661

Even though it's a small thing, being able to wear jeans on a Monday and enjoy a donut for breakfast makes my day.

Day 660

"Black Swan" is creepy and yet still awesome.  Last night, I went to see the Naptown Roller Girls and had fun!  They kicked butt big time!  :)

Day 659

Going to see the Naptown Roller Girls kick some butt tonight.  Yeeeeeeah!

Day 658

I am pumping the jams in my house tonight, and it makes me happy.  I'm glad I'm not on some reality show.  I think I'd frighten viewers when I randomly burst into song ... and even worse ... dance. :oP

Day 657

I'm really trying to get myself on the workout wagon.  I started today with 15 minutes on the elliptical.  I'm going to reward myself with weekly deposits into my "vacation fund."  So, if you want me to come visit you, encourage me! :oP

Day 656

Sweet tea is my favorite.

Day 655

"New Girl" rocks.  Can someone hire a stylist (and a personal trainer) for me so that I can look more like Zooey Deschanel?

Day 654

Dan, the sweet man that he is, picked me up from work and took me to Taste for lunch.  I wish I could say I loved what I ate, but it was just okay.  The dressing on a salad can really screw things up.  I made the mistake of pouring it all over before tasting it.  I had a bite of his B.A.L.T (the "a" is for avocado) and it was really good.  I'm going to keep trying since I know there are good things on their menu!

Day 653

Cold winter nights are best spent in the company of warm friends. :)

Day 652

I made this super yummy Blackberry Cheesecake for Thanksgiving, and it was a big hit!
Hooray for the weekend!  Found a great new (to me) cupcake cookbook.  Can't wait to try some of these recipes out.  Yum!
Happy Birthday, Becca!
Welcome to the world, Baby Ellie!

Day 651

Friday the 13th ... I did NOT watch any horror movies.  Work was enough!

Day 650

Happy Birthday, Lance!

Day 649

Chocolate Cream Pie makes life better. :)

Day 648

Today's a day that I really wish I had a big fireplace and a mound of pillows to just fall into after this tiring day.

Monday, January 9, 2012

Day 647

Work went by so fast today - I didn't even take a lunch!  Don't worry, though, I still ate.

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Day 646

Going shopping then on a walk/hike with Bridget!

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Day 645

Bowling with friends is way fun, even if you have to wait an hour and you end up losing to your guy (and subsequently have to make him dinner). :)

Friday, January 6, 2012

Day 644

You can skip "Midnight in Paris" unless you are a diehard Woody Allen fan.  "Larry Crowne" however, was good.  That's all from "Unsolicited Movie Reviews by Brie."

Day 643

You know what is a great motivator to exercise?  Being COLD!  Goodness gracious, you'd think I'd never lived through an Indiana winter before.  It's even "warm" right now.  Psh.  Can't wait to put my sweats and fuzzy socks on...

...in other news, I'll be visiting the Scottish Rite Cathedral for the first time tomorrow.  We're setting up for a bridal show, and my big guns have been enlisted to help! :)

Day 642

Dishes, done.  Movie time!

Day 641

I didn't get anything done tonight, but I had 3 really good conversations.  I'd still consider it a pretty good night. :)

This song is often stuck in my head these days:

Day 640

Even though I had New Year's Day to recover, it was really a wash and today is my real "get back in the swing of things" day.  Whew, glad I have today off!  Going to see a movie with Bridget, then doing a little shopping (80% off at a good store - can you blame me?).  Have a great day!

Day 639

Happy New Year!  Hope last night was fabulous!
