 Now that I've gotten the rapping out of my system for today (and hopefully for a very long time) - I'll get on with the show.

I went and did a workout at the health club this morning - the humidity is totally killing me. I cannot even handle running outside. I did 3 miles on the treadmill followed by about another 30 minutes of strength training. When I got home, I had one of these guys:

what am i to do when these babies are gone?

Lunch today was leftovers from Mommasita - she cooked herself a great meal last night, and couldn't have it for leftovers today since she was working. Such a shame for mommasita, but big smile on Chelsey's face.

TJ's organic brown rice, sauteed veggies, crispy tofu, frontera grill salsa
 If you have never experienced all that is Frontera Grill, you need to re-evaluate you life for sure. Their jalepeno chipotle salsa is absolutely to die for. It is my favorite!

I had a cashew, raisin, fig mix after lunch. I'm not going to lie, this lunch kept me full from lunch (about 12) straight until dinner (about 6:45). Since when do I EVER go more than 3 hours without eating? Yowza!! 6.75 hours? That is waaaay too long!
I spent the afternoon with the kids and actually fell asleep for a good 15 minutes while watching a movie with my niece. We were just so comfy cuddling on the couch! We then ran out to Target, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Starbuck's. They were good on the errands, so I decided to feed my addictiontreat them to a smoothie.

When I got home, I immediately left to go to my house. I FINALLY got to unwrap my furniture from the horrible plastic wrap because (drum roll please) EVERYONE IS DONE WORKING ON IT! The electrician finished today, and the painters showed up to touch everything up. Needless to say, I was a happy girl.

Another reason to be happy: FH fixed the plumbing! Yes!!!! Apparently there were scraps of new PVC pipe stuck in the plumbing from when it was installed. That got everything all backed up, but FH got it all out! He was very smelly when he came out though. His hands and tools were not the most sanitary (think about everything that came out of that pipe... yuck!)

When I got home, I was ravenous and very happy that Mommasita went out and got me something to eat for when I got home!

I know, it's boring - but oh so delicious! I didn't have time to think about feeding myself today :) . This potato was tiny and also had a little rotten spot, so I cooked up some broccoli as well!

Right when I was done eating, Mommasita and I headed out to find myself something to wear for my rehearsal dinner. We were VERY successful! I found an adorably cute dress which was originally $60 for $23! I love bargains like that! FH was also excited when he saw how much I saved (he's dutch, therefore, he is frugal - haha!)

When I got home from visiting with FH, I needed a snack really quick!

red delicious apple, raisins, peanut butter spoon

I'm not usually a fan of red delicious apples, but it was all we had! I definitely need to go to the store tomorrow to pick up some fruit.

I'm so pumped for this weekend! Reasons why:
  • my golden birthday is tomorrow (23 on the 23rd)
  • FH and I are going hiking on Saturday
  • i move into my house on Sunday!!!
Question: What is going to make your weekend exciting? Are you looking forward to anything?
