What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday

It’s back again this week!  What I’m lovin’ Wednesday! But before I get to what I’m lovin’ lets cover the blog basics…you know food, my workout all that jazz!  I ate an early dinner tonight and when I say early I’m talking 4 o’clock early.  I didn’t intend to eat this early and usually I’d be starving around 8 but I’m still surprisingly full but with everything I had to accomplish on my day off that was just how the cookie crumbled.  I met my friend Adam for lunch at Corner Bakery, a chain restaurant thats super popular over here in So Cal.  I was flip-flopping between a the Santa Fe Ranch Salad and a half panini with mac and cheese.  I decided to go with the panini and mac and cheese and I was super satisfied.  In bad blogger fashion I forgot to snap a picture but that’s before I inhaled my morning meal.  Sorry!  Before my workout I met up with my friend Shannon for some froyo! It’s still mega hot out in So Cal so some cold goodness was just what I was craving. Pistachio froyo with cap’n crunch cereal, brownies and gummy worms fo me please!

I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of frozen yogurt. Believe me, I’m surprised I haven’t turned into yogurt with the amount of it I consume.  Sadly though, froyo and a workout aren’t a good combination.  Running two miles on a belly full of froyo is not the business. I did however manage to push through and get in a great workout!

today’s stats!

After my run I hit up the weight room for some strength training!  I jumped around on a variety of machines and managed to bust out an additional 30 minutes down there!  Have I mentioned yet how glad I am to be back in the swing of things after being sick?  It feels AMAZING to sweat again!


What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday

In honor of the first week of October and what I consider to be the official kick off of the holiday season (I love them so much I like to celebrate for 3 whole months) you know I’m lovin the fact that I can start decorating!  I picked up a baby pumpkin at Trader’s Monday and it’s now sitting so cute and fall-y on my table!  I can’t wait for my pumpkin carving party!

I’m planning to make a run to Target before work tomorrow to stock up on some decorating essentials for the season!


Even though it happened on Saturday, I’m still loving the fact that I got to spend Saturday night with my best friend of 17 years celebrating her 21st birthday at one of the best concerts I’ve ever been too! I’m so thankful this girl is apart of my life, and I’m so thankful we get to do super fun things like this!  I don’t know what I would do without these moments!


and the third thing I’m loving, a successful season for both my teams!  Did you seriously think I was going to leave a football reference out of this post? I think I’ve told y’all I’m a HUGE football fan, I seriously turn into a boy for the 16 weeks of the season.  I’m a Charger fan by default because I live in Southern California and I’m a Bronco’s fan because I LOVE Peyton Manning!  Both of my teams are starting out strong and I’m totally hoping for one of them to make a super bowl appearance.  I’m also totally stoked that both of them have beaten the Raiders 😉 37 was the magical number this Sunday 🙂  What’s your favorite team?  I’d love to hear who you guys root for!  This girl is off to bed because I have a 3 mile run on the books at 5 am tomorrow!  See ya around breakfast time!

What I’m lovin’ Wednesday!

Claire reminded me today that it’s the last week of September.  Holy cow is it really already October?  Where has this year gone?! Don’t get me wrong, I loooove this time of the year,  I consider October the un-offiicial start of the Holidays and I’m so excited to get my decorating on!  I’m already in full on Halloween costume planning and debating on what should be this years costume, currently I’m in between Katy Perry and the rainbow fish from that children’s book! Soo that brings me to the first thing I’m loving right now…I’m totally loving the fact that it’s almost October which will mean Halloween will be in full swing in just under a week.  Can’t wait to get this holiday season in full swing!  And you know I’m over here hoping that the first week of October will bring cooler temperatures to Southern California and it’ll start feeling like fall! Yes, I am getting my hopes up and I’m hopin’ I’m not disappointed!

I’m also currently loving the fact that today is Wednesday which means I only have three days and two shifts at work to get through before I get to be reunited with these guys Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan! Remember last weekend when I celebrated my friend Camille’s birthday?  Well we’re continuing the celebration this weekend at Go Fest!  I saw these two at Stagecoach this past April and I just can’t get enough.  I’ll be bustin out the cowboy boots and getting my country on all Saturday night!  I’m also sayin’ my prayers that I’ll be feeling a thousand times better come Saturday, cross your fingers for me!

And the third thing I’m lovin this Wednesday…MY BLOG! I feel like I’m finally finding my groove with this whole bloggin thing and I couldn’t be more happy!  I look forward to popping in, to hearing what y’all have to say and connecting with other bloggers, Hi Natalie! I’m slowly gaining the courage to share with people in my life, so far I’ve told my parents, my best friend Chelsea and my other best friend Shannon…my goal is to share the link on my personal Facebook page before my race, wish me luck!


I’m off to enjoy some more soup and Friends re-runs before hitting they hay!  See ya in the morning!
