Britney, Britney, Britney!

OMG. I am freaking out like a 12 year old girl on TRL!  The Britney special is on -- well, the live preview show is on right now.  The TOP 10 Britney moments is so fun to watch.  Here's my fav: When she did this performance, I watched it over and over and tried to [...]


Sunday Morning

Good morning! I am in such a good mood! Future Hus and I debated going out to the wine bar last night, but we decided to run to the grocery store and get "wine supplies" and watch movies at home. Carrs Crackers, Cabot cheese, grapes, and Cadbury's chocolate (we shared the plate).  Plus: One more [...]


A New Appreciation

I had a new appreciation for my well-paying office job.  Seriously!  This 10 hour shift at the kennel KILLED me.  I wish I could convey to you how SORE my body is.  You guys know how much I run, and seriously.... running 10 miles doesn't even come CLOSE to comparing to working 10 hours at [...]


10 Hour Shift and Wedding Details: CAKE!

Morning, lovelies! I've got to make this snappy, as I have to be at the kennel at 7 AM for a killer 10 hour shift.  When I woke up this morning, my legs, back, and arms truly felt like I had spent HOURS in the gym yesterday.  There is NO WAY I am officially "working [...]


Manual Labor

WOAH - I am beat.  This kennel job takes me back to my bartending days.  Except I'm cleaning up after puppies instead of drunks!   My shift started out at 7 AM.  I walked about thirty dogs for morning poops and pees, and then I fed them all.  By the time I was done feeding, [...]


Thanksgiving Leftovers Egg White Mini Quiches

Good morning!  I hope you have a FUN shopping day planned; I'm working a 9 hour shift at the doggie kennel. :)   I'm actually working today, Saturday, and Sunday at the kennel.  So, I'm not really on a Thanksgiving vacay.  But at least I'm makin' money for the wedding!   I'm leaving for work before [...]


Floridian Thanksgiving

.... takes place outside. My aunt and uncle hosted a lovely Thanksgiving lunch, and we got to eat on the patio in the bright sunlight.  There was about 10 of us at lunch, but I missed Future Husband so much (he stayed with his mom and dad on the coast because he has to work [...]


Nine Little Indians

Where "Indians" equals MILES!  Yes, I woke up and ran my obligatory Turkey Trot - all 9.0 miles of it.  When my alarm went off at 6:30, the last thing I wanted to do was go for a run, but all I had to do was think of stuffing, green bean casserole, and gravy and [...]


Dog Walker

I had my first shift at the doggie kennel and it was so much fun!  Basically, I got to walk dogs for and hour and a half, and then I fed everyone, gave them water, and put them all to bed. :)   AND best part of all -- I got to walk FOUR DACHSHUNDS! [...]


Shop Til You Drop!

Pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole.... SHOPPING!!   Shopping is an essential part of any Thanksgiving celebration!  I literally shopped until I dropped this AM.   I forgot my camera at the house, but I stopped into Starbucks around 12:30 and bought a multi-grain roll that came with a packet of almond butter (only $1.69! [...]


Thanksgiving Shopping

GOOD MORNING! I have today off from work, so I've got to get going so I can HIT UP the mall!   Breakfast was simple.... Egg White French Toast! With a sliced banana, coffee, and syrup for dipping. And coffee! :) Sorry this is a lame post, but I've got to get to the stores! [...]


A Painless Run

Yay! I finally had a really painless (mentally AND physically) run.  The 5.0 miles just flew by!  I think it's because I was thinking about my upcoming bachelorette party -- I am getting really excited!   It helps so much on a run if you can focus on something besides the actual run -- just [...]


Leftovers & Wedding Details: Location

Good afternoon! Man, I'm lovin' the two-day work week! :) Happy early Thanksgiving!   Today's mid-morning snack was a not-quite-ripe peach: And for lunch, I attacked the leftovers. I used up the last of the Better Mashed potatoes, as well as some chicken and broc that  I cooked yesterday and never got around to eating. [...]


Exercising Through the Holidays!

Good morning.  I woke up early so I could get a few errands done.  My "to do" list is growing faster than I can get stuff done!   Breakfast was simple.  It totally hit the spot, too! I had coffee (obviously!) and oatmeal.  My oatmeal was kind of a "grab and go" mix of whatever [...]
