I’m about to finally get a break and go to a Bachelorette viewing party but I just wanted to catch up on here real quick before I go!
Today was nonstop work between petsitting at two different neighbors, my internship work (I got a bunch of new assignments today!), and babysitting.
This morning I was luckily able to kickstart my day with a lovely 6 mile run which felt amazing.
Anywho, I just wanted to pop on here with a few pictures from the past few days!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
On Saturday night, we ate dinner at my grandma’s house. We just brought takeout, so I got Cosi (hehe my fave ;)).
I tried the Shanghai Chicken Salad which is “All-natural grilled chicken and crispy Asian noodles with carrots and scallions over mixed greens. Tossed with reduced-fat ginger soy dressing”. I’m not a crispy noodles fan, so I got mine sans the noods. It was SO good. Definitely another fave to add to my super long list.
Yesterday, some friends and I caught up at Starbucks over iced coffees. I’m quite the little caffeine addict nowadays. Not good. Oh well…there are much worse things to be addicted to – so I’ll take my one-cup-a-day addiction over something worse!
There’s no better way to enjoy a relaxing Sunday than good friends, good weather, and good conversation over a good cup a joe.
After coffee and chillin’ with the chicas, I headed home for an awesome family din. My dad grilled up some perfectly marinated steaks with fresh corn on the cob, and my mom made her famous potato salad. Nothing says summer quite like a meal like that. Am I right?
I ate another piece of steak and more potato salad, too. It looked a tad prettier in person… but hey, I wasn’t really going for presentation – I wanted that food in ma mouth ASAP!
Oh yeah, I always cut the corn off the cob. Ever since I had braces back in middle school (I was hot stuff……….HA yeah right), I’ve never gone back to eating it like a normal person. I guess I just don’t like to gnaw at the ear of corn like an animal? I’m weird like that (or does that make me more normal/ civilized? You can be the judge of that one ;)).
I wish I had more time to work on this post but I gotta run! It’s hometown dates on The Bachelorette tonight…
