Review: The Weekend

>>>Ran a couple of miles while snow fell from the sky.  Felt like a badass, not going to lie.

>>>Delighted in a new beverage at J. Watt’s Barista House. [<-- New{ish} webiste!]  It’s like a non-fat latte meets breve.  Gingerbread White Chocolate Latte with ½ skim, ½ half and half.  All that richness, but only half the calories and fat as a regular breve. WIN.

>>>Cuddled with Benson. [and uploaded some new photos of him to the “Benson the Blitten” album on the THS Facebook page. ]

>>>Made omelet sandwiches for Nicholas and I for brunch.  [Omelet sandwiches of awesome = Giant omelet filled with chipotle chicken sausage and pepper jack cheese, cut in half to share. Served on these amazing rosemary ciabatta rolls, with a smear of Marzetti’s Southwest Ranch Dip. [I am OBSESSED with adding this dip to just about every.little.thing.  So delicious.]

>>>Watched the 25-ways to wear a scarf video that Courtney shared last week at least three times.  Wore my scarf a different way both Friday and Saturday!

>>>Ordered Chinese take-out with friends. Ordered honey-garlic chicken on a whim. Best whim EVER.  So good!

>>> Laughed out loud to Jason Segel and the Muppets on SNL :D

>>>Backed up my 2011 [thus far] photos from my computer to USB drives. BOOM.

>>>Read a few chapters from The Lake of Dreams. My desire for a stained glass window is on the rise.

>>>Made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip, minus the chocolate chips, add M&Ms.

>>>Thought Nicholas and I were going to be Taboo all-stars at couples game night. 

>>>Realized that Nicholas and I are not Taboo all-stars. [yet.]

>>>Fell deep-in-like with Arizona Blueberry White Tea.

 

 

 

Preview: The Week

>>>Run three times. Keep logging the miles for my personal Nov/Dec challenge.

>>>Finish several projects at the office, and prepare for my review next week! [exciting!]

>>>Listen to several podcasts as I run errands, tackle chores, and continue the reorganization of my life.

>>>Read Megan’s Philly marathon recap.  You know, I still don’t ever plan on running a marathon myself, but Liz and Megan both inspire me incredibly with their race recaps, training reports, and running stories.  If you want to read about running, I highly suggest these two blogs.

>>>Make Mini Turkey Meatloaf [from this book] and Butternut Squash fries for dinner some night.  Make frozen pizza and brownies for dinner on Thanksgiving .  

>>>See The Muppets!  Hooray!   

>>>Cuddle with Benson.

>>>Attend my dear friend Kirian’s Black Friday party.  Rejoice in her cooking and generosity.

>>>Drink red wine. [I’m working on a bottle of Crush red blend from Dreaming Tree wines. That’s Dave Matthew’s vineyard, my friend. And yes, of course I’ve listened to “Crush” while sipping it.] 

>>>I’d really like to make some time to do the following: write for the sake of writing, put together a puzzle, partake in a dance party, bake something yummy worth sharing, write a letter, take some photos, visit with an old friend, make a new friend, give high fives, and laugh with a stranger.  Oh, looks like I just made a little list of fun to-dos. Oops ;)

>>>Hopefully some sort of SURPRISES will take place. And some magic, too. [I am hopeful. Duh.]

>>>Remind you to enter the Wii Giveaway. [as of my writing this, there are only 63 entries!!]
