Good morning kids, how was your weekend?
I hope it was great, link up with Sami and tell us ALL about it!
Le Beau was out of town this weekend so I was 'fending for myself'. That meant Friday night it was a long run and booty burnin' workout followed by sissy wine night. I wasn't super hungry after my run and made a random concoction of mushrooms, chicken, peppers, onions, lemon zest, pine nuts and some white wine. It tasted divine and will probably become my 'I don't have anything to cook' meal.
Sportyspice and Babyspice came over to hang out and watch CMT's 'Making the Team DCC' and drink wine. We had a great time just chilling, while watching big haired dancers strut their stuff.
Saturday morning I was up early for the farmer's market [of course] and then had to get ready for a coworkers wedding. I didn't do a good job planning and was rushed getting ready so I was not able to eat much before leaving the house. That ended up being a horrible misstep because not ONLY did the wedding start an HOUR late, but it also was a 2 HOUR wedding! No joke! I was soooo hungry after the wedding that I scarfed down a Larabar I left in the car.
Sadly, I wasn't able to stay for the reception, because there was a huge miscommunication regarding the number of people attending. To make a long story short, there were not enough tables to go around so myself and another coworker (plus her family) decided to head to a restaurant instead. I was pretty bummed, but since I'm not family or a close friend I figure better me than them. I loved the dress I wore, so that made the trek worth it ;)
I was so exhausted from the whole wedding ordeal that I took it super easy Saturday evening. Just some cleaning and watching TV. OH and some baking! I got bored around 8ish and decided I needed to make cupcakes.
I texted C a picture and said "See what happens when you go out of town?!?!? I get in trouble"!
[How funny is it that baking cupcakes while the bf is out of town is trouble? That used to mean getting hammered and dancing on tables....when DID I become a grown up?] They turned out fabulous and are now sitting at work so I don't eat any of them.

Sunday was a glorious family day and I enjoyed every minute. After church the family just hung out and chilled at my parent's house. I did 2304803 loads of laundry, watched NFL Redzone [cowboys lost UGH], took a nap and master mind an AMAZEBALLS dinner feast. Teriyaki marinated grilled salmon, broiled asparagus, grilled portabello mushrooms, grilled veggies, rice and wine. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD! And the family hung out ALL day without a single 'getting on my nerves' moment. WIN WIN WIN! I'm so lucky my family lives so close to one another, so blessed.
My love got home a little after dinner time and I was uber happy to see him. I'm usually not a big "I miss my boyfriend" kind of girl, unless it's longer that a week. I love C with all my heart, but I do enjoy the solitude of being able to just be ME and do what I want when he's gone.
[MAD props to you military spouses, gfs/bfs. We civilians have NO concept of 'deployment time'. I know our 2 weeks = your 6 months. THANK YOU for supporting our country.]
So, if he's on the road for a few days a week or gone for a week, I don't even bat an eye. However, for whatever reason, I missed him like WHOA this weekend and was superecstatic to have him back home. He was a peach and even brought me home a lil gift. I can now rep is alma mater with pride!
We hit the hay super early because today started morning workouts again.
GAH it was cold!
Hopefully it was worth it!
Siiiiiiiiiiiidenote: It was totally worth it because I just ate a cupcake. Don't judge, I JUST spilled a bottle of Coffee mate on my new shirt and I'm super unhappy. DRAT!
Happy Monday friends!
