Blogger Fail

2 Jul

I’ve been MIA for almost a week. I started writing a blog post to tell you all about it and realized I didn’t have my camera with me! I guess that post will have to wait until tomorrow. I’ve got a 10k in a different town tomorrow and won’t be home to access the pictures until tomorrow afternoon. But, I assure you that I am alive!

And because I don’t have any other pictures, here’s a few new pictures of Lexi that I took with my iPhone. (Yes, I now possess an iPhone)


Smiley Eggs

28 Jun

Hope you are having a great Monday!

Egg Smiley Face

Look what we found when making eggs the on Sunday (sorry if you are vegan or eggs really gross you out).  I thought it was pretty awesome.

Sorry for the lack of posting on Saturday or Sunday.  The hubby disconnected my computer to try to fix a computer that his dad accidentally downloaded.  It was the hubs old computer so he was hoping to get some files off of it.  But after trying for hours (including after I went to bed) he determined that it wasn’t able to be saved.  So, needless to say, I was computerless.  But I did think of you all and took some pictures!  See…I’m getting better with taking pictures.

Sunday was a lazy day.  We got up early and we to the 8:45 service at church.  After eating smiley face egg breakfast we then digested and headed to the gym.  I felt like I got a really good strength training workout but I didn’t sweat much.  For some reason, lifting weights does not make me sweat which in turn makes me wonder if I’m pushing myself enough.  But when my legs and arms feel like jelly as I leave the gym, I assume I’m doing something right.

We got cleaned up and the hubs began shucking some corn we got at the Farmers Market on Saturday.  He showed me some corn that he shucked and I was horrified!

Corn Bug

This pretty much means that I won’t be shucking corn any time soon.  I guess that’s how you tell that it is local and organic.  I refused to come anywhere near it and squirmed because the thought of that made me sooooooo uncomfortable.  We definitely threw that away.

We hit up the grocery store and grabbed some dinner.  When we got home, look who we found.  Lazy as usual.

Lexi with Toy

She has been obsessed with this toy for a couple of weeks and surprisingly hasn’t lost it under the oven or couch which is a miracle.  I’m guessing it is because of the size of it but whatever it is…she loves that rabbit.

Today I had the pleasure of eating lunch with my dad.  We went to Einstein Bros. because I had a coupon for a buy one get one free sandwich thin.  Let me tell you, the Turkey was really good.  It was on a multi-grain bagel thin with turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion and reduced fat veggie cream cheese.  I omitted the onion and got plain reduced fat cream cheese.  Let me just tell you, it was one of the better sandwiches I’ve had in a while.  If you have a chance, I would try one.  While they can be a little pricey they are really good.  My dad really enjoyed his tuna sandwich too so I think the sandwich is a keeper.  And you can bet I will be recreating this at home!

No plans for tonight!  I do need to start thinking about the red velvet cake I will be making for Lauren’s bday on Thursday though!!!

The Best Part of Working Out…

22 Jun

…is Folgers in your cup a kitten in your window!

Lexi in the Window

Lexi waits for me in that little round window almost every morning that I go work out.  I love driving up and seeing her sitting there waiting for me!  Sorry the picture is bad but if I get too close she gets excited and moves a a lot before jumping down and meeting me at the front door.  Many times, I consider this the best time to spend with Lex because this is when she is the cuddliest.

I worked out today and yesterday which makes me really happy.  I’ve gotten out of the habit of going every day so that has been my goal for this week.  I ate terribly this weekend so I really need to work out and get my sweat on!  Yesterday I did intervals on the treadmill.  I am REALLY slow so I usually run at 5.2 and then I upped it to 6.5 in one minute intervals.  I haven’t run much in the last month so I did not accomplish a lot mileage wise but I did feel good about the workout even though I had to walk more than I hoped.  Today I did weights, focusing on legs and abs.

Yesterday I got a fun surprise.  I had ordered a new battery for my cell phone but ended up canceling with I thought I could get the phone I wanted from AT&T without a data plan.  Well, that didn’t work out so I was going to order it again.  But it came in the mail yesterday even though the order was closed.  I tried to contact the company but they said my order number didn’t exist.  I guess I just got a free battery?  I tried to pay for it but they don’t seem to be really bothered about getting their money or responding to me so until they do, it’s FREE!

Anyone know how to get a free or almost free phone from AT&T without a data plan?  All the free ones I can get without a data plan seem like terrible phones from the bad reviews they have gotten.  All the other decent phones require a data or messaging plan of $15+.  I do NOT want to pay an extra $15/month just so I can have a decent phone.  Don’t get me wrong…I would LOVE to have data on my phone but it isn’t a priority right now and we don’t want to spend the moola.  (Although if I had it…I would definitely tweet more often) GRRRR!!!!

Any ideas?

Blizzard Mobile

18 Jun

On Wednesday I got a fun call from the hubs on the way to work.  Lexi had an “accident” on my work boots.  We still can’t figure out why she did it.

But that night she tried to make it up to me by helping me with the dishes.

Dishwashing Kitty

She loves to get under the dishwasher when it is open.  I had to dance around that silly tail to do the dishes!

I was really looking forward to Thursday because I knew there would be a special surprise around lunch time!

Blizzard MobileThe Blizzard Mobile!

A block from my office they were giving away mini blizzards for their 25th Birthday!  We tried to beat the lunch crowd so I got it as a pre-lunch snack.  It was an Oreo Blizzard and soooo good on a hot day.

Mini BlizzardNote: this did not actually make it back to my office.  I saved it so I could take a good picture!

Tonight the hubs is going to a Dave Matthews Band concert so I’m hanging out with my Dad.  We’re watching a Disney movie and ordering pizza.  YUM!

What Disney movie should we watch? We have Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Oliver, Newsies, The Parent Trap, The Fox and the Hound or Beauty and the Beast.
