Good afternoon! I usually posts in the morning, so it’s rare I get to say that! :)
So far the weekend has been a whirlwind. Let’s give you the highlights.
Cross training went awesome. Same routine as usual (with the elliptical, weights, abs, and stairmill). Got to see the Avatar guys. No obnoxious sayings as they went through their routine… I was a little disappointed. But I’m patient. I know it’s coming…
My new favorite quick dinner? It involves an asparagus wrap with some cheddar cheese. Simple. Yet fabulous.Mon, her friend, and I went to see the band Mike and Joe play at Durty Nellie’s in Palatine that night. Here we are preshow- taking nonsense pics like we’re getting ready to head out to the big dance…I was a little self-conscious about my feet. They’re starting to look a little rough again… Ick.
Since I moved from Palatine, I haven’t frequented Nellie’s as much as I used to. And I have to say I miss it! The show was great- Mike and Joe play a HUGE variety of covers. We rocked out to Sublime, Michael Jackson, Modest Mouse, and even Gwen Stefani. My fav were the Sublime covers. Aaaahhhhhhh how I love 90’s music. We all did. So here Mon and I are busting out a couple sweet moves…We had such a great night! I don’t think we sat down once while we were there. Luckily, I had flip flops on (I had a serious wardrobe issue and couldn’t find a pair of heels that would work with my dress. Blessing in disguise!). Mon and her friend were hurting a little by the end of the night because they both had some serious footwear going on. Sassy- but painful. Totally worth it, though.
So in theme with the night, what’s your favorite 90’s song or band? I’m curious… I grew up with some serious love for Third Eye Blind, Sublime and Green Day. I was a hard-core rocker in middle school.
3:00 bed time. 7:30 wake up. I am lame.
But that’s ok- I still had work to do. I finished Annie’s birthday cake! Now to review- it’s for her and a coworker because their birthday is on Flag Day. So I finished it and took it into her work this morning. Ta-da!I’m happy with how it turned out. And Annie texted me later on to let me know everyone there had a sugar high. Mission accomplished.
Lunch was with a friend who’s doing some apartment hunting in the area. I’m slowly getting everyone to realize how cool the ‘burbs can be… ;)
Now I’m resting up a bit before I seriously hit up the yoga. I need some movement before I retire to my lovely sofa for a movie this evening. And I’m excited to give crow pose another go. :)
Have a great day!
