Strawberry Sliver

What a beautiful spring day. Can I call it spring yet since tomorrow is technically the first day? March 20th also signifies my Mom’s birth, so happy happy birthday Barbara! Scroll down to see what I ate to pre-celebrate:) You guys know the drill: work, gym, dinner. I considered taking a walk instead of going to the gym for maybe an instant, but I’ve got a wedding in 10 weeks, so it was running and muscle pumping inside for me.…

Bootcamp

Cooking

I finally tried morning bootcamp at the Y! I’ve been walking by for many weeks now, on the way to spinning, and I finally found the energy to try it. Of course, it was the one day the class was designed as a partner workout, so I was that awkward new girl who knew no one. But a nice girl agreed to be my partner, not knowing that I’m not in bootcamp shape. She was a tiny little thing, but…

Lemon Bourbon Chicken

Cooking

Tuesdays are kind of a drag. And the weather was soo weird today! This morning, it was so foggy, I could barely drive, and then when I left school this afternoon, there was an intense heat wave. When I got back in my car, all the moisture was trapped inside and my cell phone completely fogged over. I was worried something might happen on the inside. Anyway, it was one of those days were I just couldn’t talk myself into…

Man Cooks Dinner

The Working World

Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Orange. Orange, who? Orange you glad Monday’s over?!! I am. — I’m trying to stay positive about starting work, but I’m definitely feeling that what-was-I-thinking feeling. I’ve doubted this career so many times!! Hopefully that feeling goes away soon. It sure is nice going home at the end of the day! I finally got around to doing some things around the house and even worked on addressing save-the-dates! And then I went to spinning for the…

Yogi

Durham

For the first time ever, I tried yoga. The verdict?    I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it. I was really worried I would hate it, so that is a good thing. I realize the class was only one type of yoga and there seems to be quite a bit of variation between the types of yoga. A couple of thoughts from the experience: It was a beginner’s class, but it was power yoga, so I had hoped…

Working Lunch

Durham The Working World

Today was the first day at work that I really felt like I was in the swing of things. I didn’t get up early to work-out this morning and I noticed a major difference in my energy levels and there was no headache (I had one the first three days). I also had a meeting and a couple of projects to work on, so the hours few by. The best part about today though, was my discovery of the lunch…

Celebration Dinner

Uncategorized

I forgot how weekends fly by when you’re working:( I got home Friday evening with intentions to go out on the town, but as soon as I sat down on our new couch and started sipping on this intense Imperial Black Ale, I knew it wasn’t gonna happen. I was exhausted from getting up at 5:4 5. I’m hoping I’ll get used to the new schedule, but I’m guessing Fridays will be low key. The beer was fabulous and we…

Beans on a Bun

Cooking

Today was cozy. Ya know how every once and a while a nice rainy day just feels kinda fun? The main reason I felt this way is because babysitting was cancelled, so I didn’t have to walk my usual mile to pick up the little guy! Unexpected free time is the best. I read blogs, watched house hunters, and did a gentle bike ride at the gym. And then I made fANNEtastic black bean burgers on the wonderful brioche buns…

Shells or Spirals?

Uncategorized

Hello friends, I’ve missed you. Between class on Monday and the event last night, I feel like I haven’t written a regular post in a while. I enjoy being busy, but I also love a night on the couch. All three of my supervisors were out of work today, so it was a pretty relaxed day of writing at my internship. I haven’t blogged about work in a while because I’m really in the swing of things and there haven’t…
