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)!
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!
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!
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
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!
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!
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! :)
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!
