**I saw gym boy today!!! I was walking out of my Spanish class about 20 minutes late (talking to the prof. about the outline…) and he was “parked” outside of the building I was walking out of. It was a  nice day so he had the window rolled down in what is not his car (because I totally am a creepy stalker and know what he drives) There was eye contact. Wish there was a wave… but I think he might be in a frat and was with his frat… brothers… is that what you call them??**

Look at me, I’m 18! The day started with me opening presents (!!!) my fav? the nike hrm. super cool if ya ask me.

 

We had got to go to church this morning. I chose an earlier service, I hate getting home at 1:30pm. Anyways… that afternoon- I went to see the new BATMAN movie. All this talk about heathy-boy being crazy good- it’s all true. it was super cool if ya ask me.

Hillary came over after that and brought me the balloons noted above and a mini cheesecake, since she knows i love cheesecake! what a friend, huh? she’s super cool if ya ask me.

for my birthday dinner, we went to my fav restaurant in KC. but you have to go to my new food blog to hear about it. it’s super cool if ya ask me.

After all that we went to HyVee and I bought some lottery scratchers tickets. I came sooo close to winning $4000 I could smell it, but alas, i didnt win anything. that’s not cool. but buying lottery tickets: super cool if ya ask me.

Oh my!

Oh my- that’s all I can say… lo siento para no escribiendo mas noticias ayer (Sorry for not writing [posts] yesturday) (need to keep up my spanish you know 😉 )

it has been crazy with work and hanging with friends, grocery shopping and dealing with the power going out. Let me start with yesturday:

Went to work, although I’d rather be in Italy drinking a margarita on the beach. Got home and cooked dinner. I felt like I was cooking for a boyfriend. Although I wouldn’t know what that would be like since I’ve never had one. Anyways… Cooked din din for my friend H and me. I made mac and cheese, grilled chicken,  green beans and salad. I could show you some pictures but that would be boring.

H and I watched the Darjeeling Limited. Goodness it’s cast had Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, and Natalie Portman to name a few. It was a cute movie- and it’s at RedBox- thats means 1 dolla baby, or free if you get a large soda at Mickey D’s.

I went to bed pooped and woke up and had to go back to work. Get home from work, made pizza for my friend M and me. From dinner we went to Bed Bath and Beyond and then to Target to look at college stuff. Got home and the power’s out. Lovely, no internet.

Well, that was my last two days. Hope you enjoyed reading about as much as I enjoyed living it. And does anyone have any “wierd-things” suggestions like nail clippers or fabric softener that I might forget without your help?



Whole Foods Adventure

Tonight Dad took me to Whole Foods for dinner while B was at bball practice. It was a hard choice but I chose the KC sandwich:

It had roast beef, roasted red peppers, carmelized red onions, mixed salad greens, and horseraddish mayo all on ciabbata bread.

We ate outside. It was such lovely weather!

When we finished at Whole Foods we went over to Borders since it was really close. There was a cool book that I wanted to show dad, Talking Dirty Spanish. (Have I mentioned how much I love Spanish?) There are phrases in it like: hacerse el oso: to make an ass of oneself, literally: to make the bear. I want this book for my birthday- it’s coming up you know (hint, hint, mom)

Oh and that’s not my arm. I’m not that hairy. That arm belongs “a mi padre”.

Oh and here’s a “BINGO!” with a license plate reading “Annie”, our dog’s name. B wanted me to post it… not like she ever reads my blog.



Smiles!

Today I took my nike+ for my run (I went after work- no energy this morning) at the gym. It was such a wonderful run! I ran about 2 mi in 20 min. (Sorry there’s no pic- wordpress is being silly) The course is rather small- 1/12 mi per lap- so it’s almost hypnotising running around it. Since it was Frisday night almost nobody was at the gym… it was so peaceful: but it meant no swimming today. I’m scared that a shark will eat me in the pool and nobody will notice since they’re all on the treadmills.
On another note… I talked to my roommate!**edited out**

On another other note… 🙂 I went to the grocery store today to get dinner and lunch stuff. I grabbed a luscous lemon stoneyfield farms yogurt and when I opened it at home it was strawberry! I was so dissapointed… Strawberry is yummy but lemon is almost heavenly. And I needed that after such a boring day like today.



Bad Day- That’s It

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a bad day. I need to vent- bear with me.

This morning I work up early thinking I would need to go into work early since the kids’ swimming was probably going to be cancelled just like B’s swimming. When I walked downstairs I found out that *edited out* was kit by a tornado last night. I have orientation and enrollment (freaking out about this one!) tomorrow=how lovely. (the wind erosion lab was the only building destroyed lol) I got ready and went to the gym at 7:30 am. I finished my workout at 8:35… or so I thought. Called the family. The kids still had swimming. Not a big deal except that I was across town(by their house, at the gym) and had to occupy myself for 2 hours before going in to work. Thank the Lord for classes at gyms. Went to a nice, easy yoga class.

Ok, at “work” now. The kids were really well behaved today :). We went to CVS pharmacy so the kids could get some candy. Some stupid guy almost Tboned me in the parking lot. Freakin-a, just leave me alone. We had some lunch- mine was terrible. Yes the one I posted a pic of last night. Sandwich- yuck. Frozen strawberries- no flavor. Tea- provoked the gag reflex. Plus I was super hungry today- because I was so emotionally distressed (it wasn’t as bad as some days but it was no picnic).

After nannying I got to go to my other job- starving! Got a lunchable at Quik Trip. I saw Megan- I miss talking to her everyday in calc :(. Got home from work (I had a 12 hour day) and this awaited me:

A 2.5 hour old (as in on the counter that long) hamburger patty. Would you eat that?! I hate hate hate coming home from work and not having any good food. I had to eat this:

At least I had this- actually I changed my mind and had strawberry instead.

As I am writing this from my basement the tornado is in our area and I can’t go to bed. I’m tired and cranky. At least it was pay day.

EDIT: I just realized that I haven’t seen gym boy all week. Oh no. And I didn’t get to go to water aerobics tonight: my fav class of the week.



Busy Like a Bee

My, my, my, I didn’t know that I could fit so much into a day. It was a go go go day right from the start.

Wake up, breakfast: cinnamon pecan special k (not my fav), frantically gathering my gym stuff, go to HyVee: get yogurt and 2 apples, go to the gym: completed my 5 cicuits 2x and took a shower at the gym (that’s a first), to nannying: make lunch and go to the pool, go to work: file a bazillion invoices by letter and then by chronological order, come home: eat dinner (rotisere chicken cauliflower and alfredo pasta= very white) read blogs, write on mine.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my day as much as I enjoyed living it. The one thing you should take away from this. Stonyfield Farms Organic yogurt is delish! I had the low fat strawberry one. The texture was unlike any other yogurt: creamy, thinner, and a bit grainy(?). It was not super sweet but still amazing! Try some 🙂
