Time Flies….

29 Aug

Well, you know the rest of the old saying. Where did this wknd go? I feel like I was just scheming to get out of work early so I could make it to happy hour on Friday.

Yesterday morning was a bit rough for me but some friends called and asked if I wanted to go to lunch and see what the hangover wasn’t fully gone, I gladly accepted. We chose Village Tavern since they have a huge patio and it didn’t seem like it was going to excruciating, sweat falling down your butt crack kinda hot out. We pretty much had the patio to ourselves since it was kinda dead. We had an interesting server guardian angel….yeah…..that’s what our server introduced himself as. I found it weird but cute.  Kinda dead but with slow service, what’s up with that? I got a diet coke since I needed caffeine to jolt my system and I was sucking them down like there was no tomorrow. Shows them for charging $2,50 for a soda—when did that happen?

I got the Miami Burger with fries—burger topped with ham, swiss, Dijon mustard and pickles.

Look at the gooey cheese!

We sat around for a while and chatted but then remembered the new Pinkberry was right around the corner. I’ve never tried Pinkberry but love all things fro yo and if Pinkberry is good enough for Paris Hilton, it should be good enough for me right?


It was insanely packed which I can handle but was expecting more of a selection flavor wise. I got the pomegranate fro yo topped with blackberries, kiwi and fruity pebbles and it was good but I’ve had better. I would rather go elsewhere, mix and match and have it weighed. Also, I’m a pretty happy person however the happy happy joy joy act was a bit too sunshiney happiness up my butt for me personally. But then again, I was hungover so yeah…..


And then when we were waiting in line to pay, the power went out for a few seconds so that meant the computers took forever to reload with the cash registers. And then overcharged me by $2 but it was so ridiculously crazy and happy in there I didn’t even feel like going back in.

I felt so overly bloated the rest of the night I went for a 3 mile walk just to move. I felt so stuffed the whole time so seeing that I was wearing a heart rate monitor, was a bit uncomfortable.

I had a BIG salad for dinner with spring mix, tomato, avocado, mushrooms,cucumbers, ground turkey, onion, sweet peppers and cheese with some new dressing.

I loved this dressing, it would be awesome as a chicken or pork marinade as well. And what is it about avocado that makes everything better?

I would love to say I went out again or had an exciting but no dice. I was in bed with this beauty, I am enjoying it immensely but fell asleep a few times while reading since I was exhausted.

I would have loved to gone out but I have been spending way too much money on dining and drinking lately. I love my new little neighborhood but feel like I have been loving it a little too much since everything is so convenient. My wallet and my waistline are not diggin this. I had a resolution to drink less beer this month and that’s not going well at all. I have been working out a few times a wk but really need to get more exercise in more consistently.

I had a sweet potato that was needing to be used so this morning I cut into little rounds, brushed with some extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and let bake for about 20 minutes. Now looking back, the fact that I was handling a knife with no caffeine in my system was not a smart move on my behalf at all. Along with it with an egg and cheese sandwich thin topped with avocado, green onion and ketchup.

Fabulous way to start my morning.

Soon, I was off to go to my friends pool. I’ve been so spoiled with growing up in Florida, living in Arizona and living here and always had a pool. It’s just standard in my world and not having one kinda sucks. I figure this wknd would be the last of the summer I would get some pool time in so off I went. It was a great time until we were people watching and this woman had a panty liner  or some kind of toilet paper attached to her booty—eek! We just kept staring and ate one point I felt mortified for this lady and finally had to look away. It was a persistent pest as well  since it was on her, she went in the pool, got out and still stuck! Someone finally went up to her and told her but that bad boy stayed on for a while. And for the rest of the day, I was wiping my butt all paranoid and stuff.

 I feel like I am all booked for September already, look at how popular I am jk 🙂

Wknd of 4th-Parentals and some sorority sisters in plus going to a new stylist to get my hair done

Wknd of 11th-Greek Fest!

Wknd of 18th–Diana in town

Wknd of 25th-Oktoberfest and a possible guest in town. I can tell you now that wknd is going to be shot with the Oktoberfest b/c it will be the hangover from hell. WVU also plays LSU that night so it’s going to be a crazy one!

Starving by the time I got back, I picked up at a 6 inch meatball sub from Harris Teeter since it was the $2.99 special today. I mixed it up and got chipotle mayo and banana peppers on it and it was messy and tasty!

I lounged around, caught up on Real Housewives of DC and gave myself a manicure and pedicure since Sundays suck and those things make me happy. If I am going to dread going back to work, I may as well enjoy the night before right?

Dinner was random-fried green tomatoes and nachos

I sprinkled some tabasco on them for taste

So the nachos were kinda depressing. I am using to just throwing them in microwave for a minute to melt the cheese but now have to use my oven. I obviously didn’t know how long to do it for since they turned out a tad crispy but still edible. I need to work on that a bit. I miss having a microwave 😦

Hope everyone had a fabulous wknd and let’s hope this one goes by quickly since we have a three day wknd to look forward to next wknd!
