Day 729

I woke up far too early this morning and went to Louisville with my mom and some of her friends for CKC (a scrapbooking thing).  I spent too much on really awesome and unique products (okay, really wasn't too much) that I'm excited to start using.  I figured I'd go to see if it could somehow inspire me to get busy on catching up on my photos/scrapbooks.  I still have some loose photos from high school.  Yikes!

Oh, and for dinner, we went to J.T. Johnson's close to Southport Road & 65.  It was pretty good, and I think it's safe for me to recommend to anyone that's in the area and looking for a new(ish) restaurant.

Somehow, even though I'm physically tired, I'm wide awake.  Wish I could sleep like Miss Eliana (above).

Day 728

I had so much fun tonight at Joey and Stephanie's bonfire!  Good friends, a few rounds of flippy cup, and plenty of laughs.  Definitely thankful for little reminders of how blessed I am. :)

Day 727

I had a good workout today, and am fully alert even at almost 9:00 at night.  I like this. :)

Dave and I are going to do an April photo challenge on our blogs.  Leave me a comment if you'd like to participate!

Day 726

When it comes to dating, I feel conflicted.  I feel like, for me at least, it's a constant struggle: fun, feminine, nice, and sweet versus some sort of independent warrior princess who has to act like she doesn't need a man, can do it all on her own, all without breaking a sweat.  Which one is it?  The first gets me ... nowhere, really.  It just makes me a nice person who has time to bake and smile a lot.  The other makes me out to be some sort of intimidating person who acts like she doesn't need a man, so I'm somehow uninteresting.  It's all very confusing, to be honest.  I'm guessing in 50 years it'll all make sense, and I'm pretty sure I'm over-thinking it all.  I just have trouble letting it all go since I'd like to be married and potentially have a family sometime in the next decade.  Yes, I know, God has a plan for me.  Impatience gets the best of me ... more often than I'd like to admit.  Rant over, now back to your local programming...

P.S. I'm looking forward to working out tomorrow.  I know, what parallel universe have we entered into? :)

Day 725

So, my allergies have fledged a full on attack on me today.  I felt like a zombie for most of the day, despite my new bottle of "non-drowsy" allergy medicine.  I don't even want to think about what's to come this summer ... the grass, pollen, dust, and 1,001 other things are going to kill me.  Yet, it's my favorite time of year.  Yes, it's true, my cup is always half full. :oP

Does anyone else have this song stuck in their head?

Day 724

My second exercise class of the day was yoga flow, and it was goood.  I think we convinced our instructor that he needs to make that a regular Monday night class, and I think he will.  Woo hoo!
Oh, and BK used her best friend powers to persuade me into joining her on Match.  We'll see where this goes...

Day 723

I went on a hike today with Bridget and Kloey the dog.  She was so well behaved, and kept us going at a pretty steady pace.  I like this whole borrowing a dog business. :)

Day 722

I had so much fun at Kilroy's with B. Marx, Emilie, and Kenny.  A random group of friends, but it was great for conversation.  The tots were tasty, and I have a ton of leftovers.  Kenny and I went to Claddagh afterwards to do more catching up.  We're going to be neighbors soon, woo hoo!

Day 721

A few comments about today...

  • Having someone walk in and just flip out on you for no reason apparently leaves my face red and me almost in tears.  I didn't know how to react!  It really felt like she was a women off of her meds.  Scary!
  • I love going out to dinner with friends.  One. Three. Twenty.  Doesn't matter!
  • Apparently, I know how to find the gay guys, but they're disguised as the guys I'm attracted to.  Lame x 10.  Seriously annoying. 
  • I went on a 10 minute date with a guy named Ryan.  I spun the "Wheel of Men" and got the cutest guy.  Yay for me.  He was back on the wheel 20 minutes later to go on another "date," so I'm not getting too excited about it all.  
  • The thunder is so loud around my house that the glasses in the cabinet are rattling.  Per the "1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, ....) rule, it's still 5+ miles away.  
  • The Hoosiers need to kick it up a notch in the second half!
  • It's been a very strange day, but not necessarily bad.  Positive note: I'm really excited I get to sleep soon and that it's the weeeeeeeeeeekend! :)

Day 720

Wowza, I had a good, but tough, workout tonight.  I'm mentally awake, but physically drained.  It's a weird feeling for me (this whole working out thing), but I'm really starting to like it.  Since it's on a schedule, it's really easy for me to plan ahead and make sure I can get myself there.  Cheers to better health!

...for your waaaaiiiiiine.

Day 719

I went to dinner with Dad, Grandpa, and Bridget tonight at Sal's Pizzeria in Plainfield.  YUM!  Bridget, Dad, and I split "Sal's Favorite" (or similar name).  It was grilled chicken, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, olive oil, and mozzarella on a wood fired pizza crust.  Wonderful!

P.S. I love wearing dresses, leggings, and sandals in MARCH! :)

Day 718

I went to a Pampered Chef party and bought some cool new things for my kitchen.  Woot!

If you know of anyone who'd like to work for AAA on the north side of Indy, let me know.

Day 717

Despite the fact that it was a Monday, today was pretty great.  I stayed for 2 sessions of group exercise (the second session being 3 of us including our instructor).  After sweating my face off, I went to Panda to nom nom nom (don't worry, half was reserved for tomorrow's lunch), then off to Sephora to buy my new perfume.  I couldn't get the dang cap off at first (which was very annoying), and didn't want to pull too hard in fear that I'd either 1) cut myself on the metal bow or 2) break/drop the bottle.  Yikes!  All is well in my world, and I'm ready to settle into a deep sleep for the night.  Zzzzz...

Day 716

I'm wearing SHORTS in MARCH.
IU won last night.  SWEET 16!
I'm about to head out to buy some lovely new perfume.

All signs point to awesome. :)

Day 715

Looking forward to tonight's St. Patrick's Day party + the IU game!

Day 714

Ahh, Friday.  Here at last and you brought gorgeous weather with you.  Thanks for that. :)

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Day 713

Dear Thursday, thank you for going by fairly quickly to make room for FRIDAY.  I ate too much food today, so I need to cut it down tomorrow.  Oooo wee!  Looking forward to pinching anyone I know that isn't wearing green on Saturday.  Muhaha...

I like this.

Day 712

I want to join a local, fun, social, casual sports team/league / book club / something similarly fun.

I'm looooooving this 80+ degree weather!  I sat outside in my car and read my book this afternoon during lunch.  It was great!

Day 711

I had a meeting this morning with WFMS, then proceeded to go to Long's Bakery for a donut + brownie run with Ella (one of the three ladies I work with).  Needless to say, I was hyped up on sugar for most of the day. :)

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Day 710

I'm so grateful for the sunshine, the warm weather, the rather stressless day, and the higher sense of peace I have today compared with the craziness of last week.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still me.  I can still bust out a jam in the car and freak out (in a gooood way) over ... almost anything.  :)

Day 709

It was a great day to be outside and garden!  I got a lot of work done (unexpectedly), which is nice.  Hope to enjoy a few more days like this in the near future (even though it IS March). :)

Day 708

I'm trying to just focus on doing things that make me happy.  Things I may or may not have done before.  I need to stop myself from getting into any sort of mopey mentality.  Life is good!  There was so much junk going on this week; I need to remember I'm not in it and that I'm free to do things that make me happy.  As Kristen's (college) mantra goes, "I DO WHAT I WANT!"  There's nothing wrong with being a little sassy. :)

Day 707

I discovered the culinary deliciousness of Maggiano's tonight.  YUM!
...and I had a well-prepared Cosmo, too. :)

Day 706

I'm telling you, Bridget leaves town and EVERYONE starts going nuts!  I can't get into it all, but it's pretty much all drama by proxy (as Nathan says).  I'm going to need the rest of you to keep it together, because the drama department has met its quota for the year!  Yikes!  Today was especially strange, and it all started with me discovering that I had a flat tire immediately after leaving my driveway (in the rain).  Lucky for me, Grandpa let me use his car so I could get to work.  (Also lucky for me) I'm blessed to have a swell dad and uncle who change the aforementioned tire in the dark for me.  I'm glad I got to stay for my workout tonight ... it's one of the few good things about today.  I'm too tired to worry or fight the lovely endorphins!

Cheers to (almost) Friday! :)

Day 705

A new episode of "One Tree Hill" and a gorgeous day, including Penn Station for lunch, leaves me feeling happy. :)

Day 704

"Single" is a scary word, but it's becoming more familiar with age.

Monday, March 5, 2012

Day 703

...not the best day ever, but as they say "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger."  I just need to open myself up to some new adventures.  Deep breath in ....... and out .........  Let's hope that Tuesday brings a sense of renewal and light shoulders.

I found this on the page of Lara Casey, and I think it's applicable to all of us:

Day 702

I ate too much this weekend.  Ugggghhhh.  I enjoyed it all though, so I guess it's more of a "yuuuummm."

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Day 701

Scrapbooking all weekend with my mom, Ginger, grandma, and aunt ... plus some of mom's friends and 90 other ladies!

Friday, March 2, 2012

Day 700!

Happy Friday, friends!
