My Everything!

in All Posts

Writing, writing, loads of writing!


This is my book folder.  All those papers are notes, legal releases, and narratives.  Each tab is a chapter.  This book is currently my EVERYTHING.  If  my apartment caught on fire, I would snag this, my wedding album, and my laptop.  🙂


I snacked of Greek yogurt and granola per the usual.


And then I drove to Anatomy class.  I gnawed on carrots on the way:


And a Clif Mojo bar:


I got distracted on my way to class, stopped off at Ross, and purchased these shoes (please don’t kill me, Husband! They were only $15!):


Cute, huh?  I’m going to wear them to a wedding on Saturday.


I posted this Operation Beautiful note in a bathroom:


And after class, I came home, caught up on e-mails, and cooked dinner:


Twas a MISH-MASH!  I had frozen falafel balls:


Mashed potatoes:


And grilled veggies:

    Haha 🙂 Your mojo bar matches your shirt! I had the pb and jelly dipped mojo bar and it had a real fake proteiny taste to it 🙁 Maybe I’ll try that one…Have a good night in Anatomy…ugh I hate night school!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 13, 2009, 9:43 pm

    Wow I would grab that too if there was a fire in my house. That book appears to hold your life!

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) October 13, 2009, 9:47 pm

    Looks like you’re doing a great job on the writing! I’m sure the book will come together quicker than you expect!

    Love the shoes:) Sexaaaay!

  • Mellissa October 13, 2009, 9:47 pm

    Love those shoes 🙂 I would grab my laptop, wedding ring and my purse so I at least had ids and credit cards.

  • Nicole October 13, 2009, 9:48 pm

    Great book binder! I can’t pass up cute, cheap shoes either. I haven’t seen frozen falafel balls but I love falafels.

  • Evan Thomas October 13, 2009, 9:51 pm

    At first I read “only 150” and had to do a double take. Ok, as a man I can say 15 dollars for shoes is much more reasonable than 150, haha.

  • Jenna October 13, 2009, 9:57 pm

    your binder for your book is like your lil bible! hah.

  • Runeatrepeat October 13, 2009, 10:02 pm

    No matter how many times you post that video I will watch it every time! It is so powerful and I need to keep being reminded. Thank you 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  • Julie October 13, 2009, 10:02 pm

    Sexy shoes!!

    I can’t wait until that binder is a book…but probably not as much as you!

  • Jenna October 13, 2009, 10:03 pm

    I LOVEEEE whole carrots like that. The baby carrots don’t compare flavor wise. Lol.

  • Liz October 13, 2009, 10:03 pm

    In your first dinner photo, your mashed potatoes and peppers look like a flower!

  • angieinatlanta October 13, 2009, 10:04 pm

    Wow, check out that binder! You and Kath are the organization queens!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) October 13, 2009, 10:19 pm

    I have a great entry for you but I need to take my laptop somewhere with wifi. My internet at home blocks the website ….BOOOO!

  • maria October 13, 2009, 10:27 pm

    You got my vote! 😀

  • Rosey Rebecca October 13, 2009, 10:44 pm

    That binder is awesome! Can’t wait for the book!

  • Jolene ( October 13, 2009, 11:45 pm

    Eeeek I have to get an Operation Beautiful note in ASAP!!!!!

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans October 14, 2009, 12:07 am

    sometimes mish mashes are the best. also, $15?! what a steal!

  • Julie @savvyeats October 14, 2009, 12:27 am

    Two things: 1. I’m voting for you. 2. I’m posting my first Operation Beautiful note soon 🙂

    I’ve just been catching up with a few week’s worth of blogging. Dont worry about eating vegeterian when u’re in the UK. Even in the countryside, the most remote pub or B&B will offer a veggie option. It’s quite popular over here. If nothing appears on the menu, then just ask, they are usually quite keen to accomodate you. x

    You’re on top of your organization!

    I love falafel balls!

  • Jess October 14, 2009, 8:13 am

    Loving your blog! Thinking Operation Beautiful note on Friday. 🙂 So envious you’re writing a book that you’re so passionate about! It will be good to see it come to fruition. 🙂

  • Courtney F October 14, 2009, 8:59 am

    Those shoes were SO worth the $15. Great steal for cute shoes!

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) October 14, 2009, 9:17 am

    Cute shoes!! I’ll be submitting a note before Monday.

    PS you look super cute in red!

  • kirsten October 14, 2009, 9:27 am

    cutie shoes!! and only $15! what a steal! 🙂

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 14, 2009, 9:47 am

    Yum falafel balls! One of my favorite foods 🙂

    Cute shoes too and $15 is totally reasonable. I really need to get some new ones, all of mine are getting worn out and I’ve been too cheap to buy any!

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance October 14, 2009, 10:08 am

    RED is so your color!!! And, I totally love those shoes!

    =) Laura @ Finding A Healthy Balance….after a 100+ POUND weight loss!!!

    Cute shoes! But my Flintstone feet would never fit in those. ARGH!

  • Jess (What's Normal, Anyways?) October 14, 2009, 7:11 pm

    I love your organization method for the book! Great idea.

    Speaking of wedding photos, how did the wedding reshoot go? Did I just miss the update somehow?

    • Caitlin October 14, 2009, 7:12 pm
