Hola! How are we feeling this Friday?
“I’ve had three Red Bulls in the last 20 minutes and I feel GREAT!”
Yeah… like that. I may have overdone it on coffee today.
I also just really love Leslie Mann. She had some of the best one liners in the movies she’s in and you can’t beat her comedic timing.
As I looked at the calendar yesterday, I realized one slightly exciting yet anxiety-inducing thing. My golden birthday is LESS THAN 10 DAYS AWAY. Yep- I’m turning 25 on the 25th this year. In all honesty, I thought I’d hit quarter-life crisis mode at some point and do something silly and rash. That hasn’t happened… yet. But I won’t rule it out. I’ve been known to go off on random tangents.
Either way, it’s going to be my birthday soon (part of the reason I have weekend visitors the next couple of weeks) and I’m never one to ignore a birthday.
Would it be tacky to register myself at Whole Foods for granola bars and a variety of nut butter? Yes? Ok… I won’t do it. Or I’ll at least wait until Christmas.
One of my grievances with the age change is it puts me into a new racing category. Which, from observation, seems MUCH more competitive. That could only mean one thing. I’m gonna have to step up my game. For reals.
Whatever though, let’s talk about something else.
Like the fact that I have friends here! I picked them up after work at the airport and we’ve been gossiping and chit-chatting ever since. Most of that we did while I was making dinner for my guests!Imagine how excited I was to find out we all have the same extreme appreciation for asparagus and zucchini!Every decent meal needs a salad, right? We kept it simple with peas, cashews and feta. And the main meal was my fav way to have chicken as of late- baked bbq. Thrown in a wrap with avocado and mozzarella. Totally delicious.
I got the two thumbs up from my guests.Helllloooooo Sarah and Beth! After dinner, we ran out to grab a chick flick- finally caved and watched Remember Me. I had been curious and a lot of you kids have said it’s worth a go, so we picked it up. And it was a much better movie than I was expected. I thought it’d be a mushy romance flick… not the case at all! If you’re looking for a good girly movie (and maybe even a good cry), I’d say to check it out!
We had a few glasses of wine, but that didn’t keep me from an early morning wakeup call…
I used to do the early morning workouts last year, but got out of the habit. No idea why. The workout room was empty. And not a humid sticky mess as it has been the last few times I’ve gone. Maybe a new way for me to switch it up when I go into the office later? hmmm…
Either way, I did a semi-cross train day. I ran 3 miles, focused on some arm weights, and hopped on the elliptical for 20 minutes. All while catching the morning news. My main interest is learning a little more about the Transformers 3 filming that is going on over the weekend downtown. The gals and I plan to seek it out tomorrow and get our first look at a movie set! And maybe a glimpse of Shia LeBouf? Well… maybe not… but a girl can dream! (Especially now that Vince Vaughn has a baby mama- boooo….)
Won’t lie, though – my caffeine intake this morning has been somewhat alarming. I partially blame the late night movie on that one. And the 5:00 gym session. Eek!
Gotta go, though- work is calling. And I don’t have time to mess around- right after we’re going out to hit up a BYOB restaurant and see a comedy show! (I seriously can’t wait to tell you guys about it because it looks it’s going to be scandelous… so get excited!)
