After 2 weeks of work with a trip smooshed in between, I feel like I can finally exhale and enjoy myself tonight! Not that I didn’t enjoy myself at all in two weeks, but it was the kind of in-the-back-of-your-mind-you-should-be-doing-something-else kind of mentality. Excited to read some blogs and watch some TV tonight!
Lunch held me over really well – it was one of those days where I didn’t even think about food all afternoon. Must have been that extra large + loving sandwich!
I got home from work and found a bunch of exiting things to play with:
Number 1, I bought a fancy pair of socks and some Body Glide at the running store next to my office. The guy said Vaseline clogs pores 🙁
Can you guys give me some support on why I should spend $100 on new shoes. Please convince me I need them so I don’t feel guilty if I get them… I don’t want to, but deep down I know it’s been more than 6 months and I’m running long miles now and they are so important….
Another fun thing came in the mail: our WICKED tickets!!! The show isn’t until May, but my mom treated us to the tickets for Valentine’s Day!! So excited.
Also was handed two fun + delicious muffins!
And got a new bar to try – Bora Bora bars – which came with this totally awesome mug!! Can’t wait to try the bars out for a snack soon.
They also sent a t-shirt, which of course was too big for me since they always are, but it is fun for Matt!
And LAST but not least! Tazo sent some of their new bottled teas! These are brewed with tea and botanicals and sweetened with stevia. [Unfortunately bottle #3 was smashed inside the box – thanks UPS 🙁 ]
Tazo is randomly picking 100 people per day from March 12-18 to win a free sample pack of teas. (And 1 person per day wins a SpaFinder gift card!)
Being a lover of a Friday Night Drink, I made myself a mocktail! He had a coveted beer from Russian River Brewing Company and I mixed the Tazo Passion with ice and a cherry.
The tea tasted GREAT! It was really flavorful and sweet and while I don’t believe in sweetening beverages anymore, a pinch of stevia is what I would request if I could choose.
They two actually went REALLY well together! Passion + IPA! Matt agreed!
I’ve been craving OKRA but it’s not OKRA season! So I settled for a bag of frozen okra and planned a simple Throw In A Pot Chili for tonight. So easy. Literally just put beans, tomatoes, corn, okra and seasonings in a pot and simmer until you feel like eating.
Kashis! It’s been a long, long time. Now that we have wholesome breadz in da house, I don’t really crave these much nor do I want to buy them. But we had one lone box and it was cracked open this week and I’m enjoying them while they last 🙂 About about 5 more that went box –> mouth!
Matt thanks you all for your nagging, but he got out scott free because a reader had saved the recipe and emailed it to us!! Thanks Meghan!
THE OFFICE + 30 ROCK + GLEE = fun times!!! I used to never watch TV and now I know why people are hooked on it! Guess I should be out walking in nature, but I have daylight savings as my excuse 🙂 Maybe I’ll do some crunches during the commercials….oh wait…there aren’t commercials anymore! Thanks DVR!
(PS. Our modem was "busted" so it wasn’t really AT&T’s fault. They were here and had it fixed ASAP. And the guy was the one who installed it last year and remembered "that blog" and asked Matt about it! AT&T has redeemed itself 🙂 )
For dessert I cleaned out and organized my bar stash. Took a few corner nibbles of some bars that were either old or I knew I’d never eat and then tossed them.
YOGA in the AM! Woo. Hoo.
