Happy Hump Day

Woo, we’ve made it to Wed, half way through the week!!  Though for me it’s my last super busy day, 6am to 7pm (like I said long day.)  Thursday and Friday I do have work to do but it’s not very structured so I can come and go as I please and get work done in my office with only a few meetings and no classes.  Anyway, I shouldn’t rub it in, life of a student and all that lol.

I of course need to take a minute to just say that like everyone else, I for sure remember exactly where I was the day the Towers fell……and I will never forget the brave men and women who emerged as heros……

Now, this morning, as per usual was my cross-training day which meant 5 miles on the elliptical.

I tried an action photo, this is what I got lol.

Then it was off to pick up some cookies for the office cook-out tonight.  I was technically supposed to make a dessert but ya gotta do what ya gotta do and this girl didn’t have time to make any from scratch.  If only the cook-out was friday (see above for free time lol).  So on my way home to shower I stopped off at Great Harvest Bread Company and picked some Snickerdoodle’s as well as a half loaf of Dakota bread for me.

Can't wait to toast it up!

With only a few minutes to spare, after a quick lunch of a toasted pb&j on my brand new bread(uh YUM!), I was back on campus for class and more meetings (do you see a pattern?)  Anyway, once class let out I drove straight to the office party.  It was burgers and salads galore!  There are a few Dietitians in my office, not to mention the many Personal Trainers and Health Education Specialists so the food was not only delicious but literally nutritious.  What can I say, I’m spoiled 🙂

I also have some exciting news to announce later this week, so you’ll have to stay tuned.  I’ll give you a hint, it has something to do with pink ;D

Happy Memorial Day

I know, I know I’m way behind on this weekend update but I choose to spend it with my Guy and friends instead of writing…I’m sorry.  Let me first start out by thanking all those who have served our Country.  I know I owe my freedom and life to the brave men and women who give theirs.  I can never express the gratitude that y’all deserve!

On a completely unrelated note……Holy cold front New England!

Can you tell I'm a TN fan? :)

It was such a FREEZIN couple of days up here in Massachusetts!  It rained on and off for 2 whole days and hovered somewhere in the 60’s with a biting wind.  A good rainy day is always welcome in my life though, I’m a huge book nerd and love snugglin up on the couch and delving into another world.  I’m currently reading a book called May the Road Rise Up to Meet You by Peter Troy.  Oh man it’s a good one, takes place during the Civil War from the perspective of 2 slaves, an Irish Yankee soldier, and an upperclass society lady from New York.  Very interesting how their stories all unfold….but I digress

Sunday I decided to grit my teeth, wrap myself in 4 layers (I know I’m a baby when it comes to the cold), and headed out for a 4.5 mile run.  By the time I got home my fingers couldn’t function properly, like I could feel them but couldn’t make them do what I wanted lol.

They would actually fire their muskets into the air!!

Monday turned out to be a gorgeous day though, and after a short run in the morning dodging parade-goers, I decided to just stop and watch Memorial Day parade!  I truly believe  now that no one has American pride like New England does! Living in the city definitely has it’s advantages, I walked right out my apartment and BOOM parade!

Every time they stopped they fanned out and crouched down, I managed to snap this pic

We finished up the day with a cookout with friends.  It’s not memorial day without a hotdog!  I also made some peanut butter oatmeal cookies.  Look how patriotic they are!

Hopefully your weekend was as awesome as mine turned out to be.  Do you have any Memorial Day traditions?
