All I want to do this weekend is sleep and catch up on all my crappy (and highly entertaining) TV shows. I think these two lazy bums will want to do the same as me:
Any fun plans this weekend?
I wanted to share with you some things I’ve been lovin’ recently:
1. Last night, Rob and I attended Crossfit for the first time. We met a great group of people and are very excited about starting this new fitness adventure. I thought I did decent for the first time and can’t wait to get in the swing of things!
2. In my daily Positive Quote of the Day email, I received the following quote. Love it.
One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneselfas a bundle of
possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world –
making the most of one’s best.
– Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969) American Protestant Minister
3. Bacon is still wonderful.
4. I got this new water bottle that is hands down one of the best waterbottles I have ever owned. And I know my water bottles.
7. Does anyone remember these?? I used to love these educational learning thingamabob. (That sounded a little dumb of me….)
8. Just look at her eyes. And I am allowing her to be in my wedding. Sigh.
Good news…Tomorrow is Wednesday. Phew!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you are sporting a little bit of green…unless you are asking to get pinched ;-)
I decided that my kelly green skirt needed to be worn today. (Sorry for the ghetto iPhone quality picture.) Strangely enough, I got a number of weird looks as I got off the train this morning. Don’t people know what being festive means?!
Although, if you are willing to take a chance, you might get lucky like this kid:
The funny part is…he is actually wearing green. Should someone tell him? (P.S. I love his memes. I mean THAT FACE.)
I’ve been away for quite some time. Any in that time a whole world of things have come and gone or come and stayed. With all that has stayed, I have been bustling around getting things done, making dreams come true, and more importantly having a blast.
So what could possibly be going on in this crazy life I’ve been living:
So what could possibly happen next? While the last year or so has offered you a splatter of my life, I hope to give you more posts than before. I know this is a big promise that I could easily break – but I hope you stick around and see what happens next!
I have so much to tell you since my last post – It has been ages ago. But while you are waiting for that little ditty, I wanted to share with you this quote I stumbled upon recently:
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark.” - N’tima
*And no, there are no wedding announcements coming.
I was recently sent the following link titled “Surviving Whole Foods” written by Kelly MacLean, a stand-up comic/writer/actress/person. If you haven’t yet read it and are looking to be amused, please check it out.
I literally laughed out loud. Mainly, because everything she wrote I related to immediately. As someone that has dietary restrictions, I go to Whole Foods on occasion looking for that one item that doesn’t have gluten/dairy/goodness and is only sold in aisle 5 at Whole Foods. (Personally, I am more of a Trader Joe’s kind of lady.)
I have seen the people that frequent there, I have interacted with their personalities, and I have had those discussions with friends (and friends of friends) about the food/natural food phenomenon that has swept our country.
With today’s society so concerned about all the stuff that we put into our body, it is nice to step back and laugh at how our actions have transformed into this huge pile of au natural judgement in your local grocery aisles.
I’ll still hop into Whole Foods when I need this or that, and I’ll still laugh when I see a 3 year old crying for the $5 bottle of juice that promises to produce a genius. Will I chuckle to myself a little harder when I pass by “the poison in aisle 7″ and the “gluten-free section filled with crackers and bread made from various wheat-substitutes such as cardboard and sawdust”?
Of course, I will. Let’s face it – sometimes that gluten-free stuff tastes like cardboard and sawdust.
