As craptastic as Tuesday was (yes, that’s a dog poo joke), it did eventually get better.
Or at least for a day in the middle of the week.
There are relatively low expectations for when it comes to what defines an awesome work day.
A girl’s gotta eat. So it’s convenient I help organize the meetings. And make sure there’s extra food ordered. Just in case.
Even went back for another cookie. Whoops.
Hence the urge to get in some serious cardio at the gym.
Running wasn’t originally on the agenda. To be totally honest, I really only prefer to run every other day. It’s my sport of choice, but I’ll still get bored if it’s a daily habit. Initially, I posted up on the stairmill for 20 minutes and the elliptical for 17. Both ideally placed by the front door. It’s easier to people watch that way. Good stuff.
However, I have a short attention span (see my choice to do the random “17″ on the elliptical). And I can’t commit to a plan. So I ended up on the treadmill to squeeze in another mile before leaving.
Sigh. It’s an addiction.
In other news, fall is officially here, kids.
You know what that means, right?
Other than football and the excitement for what baseball teams will make the playoffs (come on Cards… you’re really killing me here!)…?
It’s time for our second Blogger Sweet Swap!
That’s right. Get excited. Because Jess and I are at it again. This time the theme is “Fall Follies”. Kinda like the theme of those corny junior high dances you used to go to. But with better food and less awkward slow dancing. Obviously.
And we want you to join! Dust off that can of pumpkin. Break out the maple syrup. Do what you’ve got to do to come up with the best ever fall-themed baked goods out there!
You know you want to.
So without further ado, here are the rules for your reading pleasure:
1. Each participant should send approximately a dozen of whatever treat they choose to make. (12 cookies, brownie pan to serve 12, etc). Of course, you are allowed to send more, but please keep the minimal to 12.
2. Pairs will be finalized and notified by October 6th and the delicious treats should be shipped by October 17th. We just ask that you be respectful of others and try to get them out before, or as close to that date as possible.
3. Tell Amy & Jess how much you love them for organizing this fantastic operation. (this one is optional…)
*Disclaimer- the organizers of this bake swap are merely responsible for matching the participants, and are not responsible for the items shipped.
If you participated in the first round or have contacted one of us since then, we’ll be emailing you to confirm your participation again, so no worries! However, if you haven’t yet, that’s when we’d like to hear from you!
And with that, I shall let you go on your way. Have a good one!
