feeling good.

I updated my last post saying I wouldn't be so missing in action around here and I'm now updating you for lack of that happening.  It's Friday so I'm going to keep it short and sweet, I'll be back ready to go on Monday. 

On another note has anyone seen this amazing young girl sing Nina Simone's Feeling Good?  She's amazing.

Happy weekend!

a little lemon...

I have been seriously MIA in the blogosphere lately.  I wish I could say I’ve been insanely busy, or work has been crazy but none of those things are precisely true.  I just haven’t had much going on.  I’m currently in a weight loss competition with some friends that will wrap up in two short weeks and trying to lose weight requires me to eat at home and work out all the time.  Therefore my days consist of sleep, work, working out, and going home to make dinner and sometimes another workout or sleep.  It’s boring. 

I ate and drank to my heart’s content over the weekend while visiting some friends out of town and am seriously regretting that decision when it came time to see my progress this week.  But life moves on and you get back on track.  

On another note the chalk board wall is complete!  Pictures to come soon.

these days.

This week has flown by.  I can't believe tomorrow is Friday!  How nice would it be to always have Mondays off?  My days seem to be a blur of work, working out, and working on the apartment. 

This past weekend I had a great time going to my alma mater and visiting with a dear friend that I don't get to see often enough.  I even enjoyed sitting in the upper deck and sweating like crazy, it was the worse heat I think I've ever endured. 

Then came my first Green Monster experience... 

I'm a big smoothie fan, especially in place of a regular breakfast meal and finally have jumped on the green monster bandwagon.  I have to admit I wasn't sure the spinach flavor would be masked by the other ingredients but sure enough not once did I taste it.  I used this recipe but added raspberries, used almond butter instead of peanut butter, ice, and probably only packed in about two cups of spinach.  Tomorrow I plan on adding more.  Sure enough what everyone keeps saying is correct, no spinach taste.  Basically for those that have never tried it, it tastes like whatever smoothie you were making just a different color.  You could add spinach to any type honestly.

And lastly, the chalk board wall.  This is honestly my first real attempt at painting walls and its a lot harder than I imagined.The second coat is officially up and I think one more will do the trick.  Once its finished you have to wait three days for the paint to cure, rub a piece of chalk on the whole wall then your good to go. Can't wait!

What have your days consisted of lately?  Anything exciting?

There she is.  This is one coat in, it will end up needing probably two or three total but I am seriously digging it so far.  I can't wait to finish it and start writing!
