Good evening!  I skipped my cross training because I thought I was getting together with some friends for poker, but alas… our plans fell through.  At least I got a lot of Law and Order time in.  🙂


Mid-afternoon snackies:




Chobani and cereal:


Dates around 5:30 to hold me through to dinner:


Dinner was super simple… which is always good!  I just didn’t want to slave away in the kitchen tonight.


1 cup of minestrone


+ an English muffin with cottage cheese and a carrot.


And…. for dessert:  a piece of chocolate + a glass of milk.


Fun Fact:  Did you know only 3% of mammals mate for life?   I’m watching one of those awkward Discovery channel shows about the science of sex… it’s making me nervous! :)  But I’m learning tons of totally useless facts.

    English muffins and cottage cheese – YUM!!! Two of my favorite foods. 🙂

  • Bec April 8, 2009, 5:46 pm

    I love the discovery channel!

  • Alison April 8, 2009, 5:50 pm

    I can’t find Chobani brand yogurt anywhere – do you know if it’s just on the east coast?

    Alison – Hmm I dunno. Oikos is a great alternative, if you can find that!

  • Kimberly April 8, 2009, 5:56 pm

    This is sort of random, but have you ever seen Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet? It’s one of the most unique and awesome shows on TV, and if you like Discovery, you might enjoy!

    useless facts are the best to have on hand – you never know when you’ll need one 🙂

  • Mica April 8, 2009, 6:28 pm

    Maybe more mammals should blog about the events leading to their weddings. That seemed to work for you!

  • Michelle April 8, 2009, 6:35 pm

    I love those shows. Have you ever seen ‘Planet Earth’. I watch it drooling and totally engrossed.

    Do you make your own dinners, or does your husband eat as well with you?

  • Meg April 8, 2009, 6:39 pm

    Your dinner looks yummy to me!


  • inmytummy April 8, 2009, 6:51 pm

    Aren’t penguins one of the 3%? I think I heard that before.

  • Megan April 8, 2009, 7:01 pm

    i love the discovery channel 🙂 i feel so intensely smart after I watch it, I find any reason I can to interject my newly-learned facts into conversation haha.

    just looked at your last post, and your wedding rehearsal looked soooo fab!!! my sister is getting married again in august so I have been such a wedding junky (WE tv….. i cant resist it) and these pictures gave me my fill for the day 🙂 everyone is so pretty!

    i signed my sister’s marriage license as a witness and I spelled my name wrong….. gah. had to have a a re-do.

  • Matt April 8, 2009, 7:14 pm

    At least I learned something today!

  • Run Sarah April 8, 2009, 7:17 pm

    Only 3%? Surprising!!

  • Sarah (lovINmytummy) April 8, 2009, 10:27 pm

    I’m guessing the soup wasn’t the Puckster. Bummer.

    michelle- due to the husband’s school schedule, sometimes he eats with me and sometimes he doesnt. you can usually tell the nights i cook for both of us because its a
    “real meal”. when i kind of just slap stuff together (like this post) i’m not cooking for two. but yes he eats all the healthy stuff i make for him! we eat dinner together like 80% of the time.

    Oh man, seeing all these dates on your blog makes me crave them intensely!
