Britney, Britney, Britney!

in All Posts

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 learn the moves myself (I was only 15!).  :)  Oh yea, and a little band called NSYNC is in the performance, which made it that. much. cooler.


This upcoming week is super exciting for me:


  • Britney CD drops on Tuesday (buy it!)
  • 4 day work week
  • Leave for bacholerette party in NYC on Friday




Future Husband and I spent HOURS today working on the wedding.  We went over the guest list. I think we’re only 10 people over our original estimate, which is pretty good.  We’ve blown the budget, but not too badly. So far. 🙂


We made it to the gym for a quick work out session, but I forgot my knee sleeves at home, and my knees started to pop pop pop after 15 minutes on the elliptical.  I switched to weight lifting and did bicep curls, tricep curls, dual pulley rows, inverted sit-ups, and more.  It was a great workout!


My HRM is still showing the black screen of death so — sorry, no statistics for my workout! 🙁


I had my usual snack around 11… yogurt + Grape Nuts + raisins.


Lunch was a simple grilled cheese and celery sammie.  Future Hus took one look at this and said, "You are going to turn into a hunk of cheese!" LOL


My pre-workout snack with a TLC bar.


By the time dinner rolled around, I realized (1) I hadn’t eaten ANY veggies (celery doesn’t count) and (2) I needed CALORIES!  We got Thai take out because I was too beat to cook.


Top left:  garlic and pepper chicken and a curry beef.  With about 1 cup of rice.  I needed the fuel!

Pile On The Miles


Bobbi’s Pile On The Miles challenge was so much fun!  I ran 62.9 miles between November 8 and today — that’s about 20 miles a week!  Less than I was running when I was training for the half marathon, but I’m satisfied with my weekly average!  I can’t wait to get back into long-distance training.  I have a half scheduled for March 1.


I’ve got some FUN wedding details to post tomorrow, so I’ll see you then!


Hit me baby, one more time!

  • ashley (sweet and natural) November 30, 2008, 7:46 pm

  • Krista November 30, 2008, 7:59 pm

    You are SO funny when it comes to Britney! I love you’re enthusiasm! I wanted to catch her show tonight, too, but it’s on too late for this girl on a Sunday!

  • Meg November 30, 2008, 8:11 pm

    Can’t wait to hear the details! Sounds like a great day! I love Thai! Dinner looks yummy!

  • Halie November 30, 2008, 8:25 pm

    Sounds like a great day!

    Good job on your month’s milage! Way awesome!

    Have a good short week!

  • haya November 30, 2008, 8:26 pm

    you probably just need to send in your hrm for a battery change (if you’ve got a polar, you have to have them do it for you which kind of sucks)

  • Julie November 30, 2008, 8:27 pm

    That is the best Britney moment ever! My fave. Don’t forget she’s on the today show (or gma?) Tuesday!!

  • Marissa November 30, 2008, 8:36 pm

    The REI sleeves are seriously AMAZING! I remember the whole Britney/’N Sync *CRAZE*

  • Laura November 30, 2008, 8:37 pm

    I’m watching it too! It’s really good to see her doing well again!

  • Anonymous November 30, 2008, 8:59 pm

    I love that performance as well! I was a HUGE *NSYNC fan back in the day (who am I kidding, I still am) and I loved Britney as well. She was ON TOP and I’m really glad to see her getting back there.

  • HangryPants November 30, 2008, 9:07 pm

    haha I just turned on MTV and saw the very end, nut now I want to see the whole thing.

    Good job on the miles!

  • Andrea of Care to Eat November 30, 2008, 9:36 pm

    I think it’s great that you have no shame for your Britney love. I love her too (have all the albums, seen her in concert twice, etc.) but I’m a few years older than you, so I have to hold back my Britney enthusiasm sometimes 🙂

  • just me November 30, 2008, 10:14 pm

    i saw in the target add for the new spears cd on tuesday and immediately thought of you…hehehehe….

    congrats on the miles! you beat me!

  • Katie November 30, 2008, 10:17 pm

    I just sang along to that… When I was 10 I went to the set of The View when she was performing and she sang that! Barbara Walters asked if she’d ever been in love and she said “Not yet…” Ah, definitely in my top moments!

    Bachelorette party sounds SO FUN!

  • BOBBI McCORMICK November 30, 2008, 10:26 pm

    man this video takes me…way to POTM!!! Can’t wait to hear about all the wedding details!

  • Mica November 30, 2008, 11:19 pm

    Thanks for the Britney update. I am going to take time out of my pre-finals week and buy the CD for some good runnin’ music.

    On an unrelated note: I finished “In Defense of Food”. It was AWESOME! I’ll probably read it again to absorb more of the information. Thanks for the suggestion!

  • imadedinner December 1, 2008, 4:11 am

    Wow, that video threw me back to my freshman year of college… of course, only very vague memories!

    Enjoy your week!

  • MizFit December 1, 2008, 4:19 am

    and I missed that.


  • Erica December 1, 2008, 4:20 am

    Aw I forgot that special was on last night! I will have to catch the rerun! Sounds like a great week! 4 day week whoo hooo!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) December 1, 2008, 5:14 am

    to those who missed the britney special – dont worry, im sure MTV will re run it 5 bijillion times. 🙂

  • Elina December 1, 2008, 6:52 am

    Haha, you and your Britney obsession 😀

    I totally know what it’s like to blow wedding budgets! After a while, you just want to make it perfect and a few extra dollars after all the other money spent seems like not that much. I think at the end, it worked itself out in my case though… a few people cancelled (not that I wanted that, but it did save us some $$) and we got money as gifts so that again offset some of the expenses. Enjoy wedding planning and if I don’t post again before the weekend – have fun at your Bachelorette party. I had mine in NYC too, and it was awesome!!

  • Erin of Care to Eat December 1, 2008, 12:20 pm

    I can’t wait to watch that special. I DVR’d it and totes thought of you!
    Was that sando crazy? It seems like the textures would be pretty cool.

  • LT December 1, 2008, 5:23 pm

    I know that back-up dancer, TJ! We met up with him while we were in Vegas about 8 or 9 years ago – the height of Britney mania – and kids were following us and taking pictures! We thought it was insane that people recognized Britney’s back-up dancers!!

  • Rochell Aten August 14, 2010, 10:44 am

    I am obsessed with Britney, I really love her.

  • Bennie Gershey August 17, 2010, 8:20 am
