She does NOT look happy to be here.
The title of this post will make more sense by the end.. or not, but at least it should :)
First of all, let me appologize for being MIA lately, I will try to make up for it with multiple "catch-up" posts -- this has been my desk at work lately:
When people talk to me and ask where I've been my new response is "Running around like a chicken with its head cut off"
Sorry for the vivid picture -- but that's all I can compare it to. I feel as if I'm so busy I'm constantly running, but my brain is so fried it's practically not useful at all. Hence, head cut off chicken...
Today is Mike & My 2 Year Anniversary!!!!!!!!
Just dating Anniversary, but still... it's big to me :) Well, and its the official dating Anniversary.. we actually started dating in June 2009 but I wouldn't let him call us official yet because I wanted him to prove his knightly worth -- so archaic of me, I know, but it turned out well!
Since it's such a joyous day, I decided to carve out time for a post.
And in celebration of thus post I shall be performing this office
inappropriate workout to burn maximum calories that I can then fill as I drown myself in Italian Pasta happiness tonight for a celebration dinner...
Speaking of delicious calories, if you haven't tried Chocolate Covered Katie's BOATMEAL (Baked Oatmeal) I tried her Cinnamon Roll version (sans icing) and it was DELICIOUS.
Highly recommend those calories!!!!!!
Not that I think anyone should be overly concerned about calorie consumption, but personally I do have to keep myself in check. Otherwise I'd be a mountain.

Something I saw the other day that I loved and had to share...
So true. Through exercise I've learned to love my body and love everything I am capable of! I'm not the best/fastest/longest distance runner - but I can run! and every time I do, I improve. It really builds confidence in yourself - make sure to set little goals at the gym and then celebrate when you meet them!
One way to celebrate? New nailpolish!!!!!!!
I call this look
I went with the Grilled Chicken Sandwich topped with pesto and avocado on toasted sourdough bread - but next time I want to try their OMG burger (Onion Ring, Mushroom & Goodness... I don't know what goodness is but I know I want some)
I also got roasted broccoli on the side and they insisted on putting their freshly prepared chips on my plate although there was so much food that I had to decide between the sandwich and chips and the sandwich definitely won.
Sadly, I was TOO stuffed to even attempt their famed Whiskey Cake and I shall be heading back soon because I imagine something involving cake and alcohol to be pretty delicious and a must-have experience. If it's anything like Tiramisu then I'm IN.
The face is in reference to the lighting. Face, don't be rude! I need to have a discussion with my office about the horrible flurescent lighting in the bathrooms... ew.
What do we think? It had to be work appropriate since we're going out to celebrate straight from work tonight.
I got this dress from HauteLook when they were featuring a Jessica Simpson sale - score!!
Randomly Funny Chat of the Day:
Speaking of things you need to have a talk with (a.k.a. my face), I was talking to my BFF Ashley who happens to be pregnant right now and she informs me that since she is having pre-labor contractions she's getting a HypnoBabies CD called "Baby Stay In!" - hypnosis track to help with preterm labor.
This is great. I can think of so many other Hypno CD titles that I would invest in...
"Abs Be Flat!"
"Ass Don't Sag!"
"Face DON'T BE RUDE!"
So Questions of the Day:
What Hypno CD title would you be interested in purchasing?
What's your main reason for working out? Do you love the endorphin high? Do you simply do it to stay fit? Tell me :)
Nail polish & being appropriate for corporate America -- what are your feelings on neon nail polish and the office?
- Personally if I show up to work with hot pink nails I find no one wants to take me seriously...
