A Rough Start

Hello, Hello!

On Friday night a friend and I went to see Inception. Really good movie. I won't give anything away, but I just wanted to say that before going to see it, a bunch of my coworkers were talking about how confusing it was and they didn't really get it. I was prepared to be taking notes just to make sure I "got it"...well, no notes needed! I didn't think it was confusing at all! Go see it!

Afterward, we went and had a couple drinks. Seriously, I had TWO vodka and cranberries over the course of THREE hours. Yet, somehow when I woke up yesterday morning, I felt like I'd been hit by the Blue Line "L"! Here is my hangover solution: Step 1 - upon waking and feeling like crap, get up and chug a glass of water; Step 2 - go back to sleep. Repeat steps as necessary! This meant that I didn't officially roll out of bed until 11:15!

Once I did finally decide I was ready to face the world, I headed over to my friend's house to TRY to finish up designing my business cards. Who thought this would take so dang long?! And guess what? After 2 hours at the computer...still no business cards ordered! I'm about to be happy with a pad of Post-Its that have my website & email on them and call it a day!

Around 4pm we decided to get some lunch...yeah, when you get up as late as I did, 4 is considered the lunch hour :) I ordered a veggie panini & some red potato salad. Too many mushrooms on the panini...mushrooms kind of scare I only ate maybe half. I killed that potato salad though! It wasn't too heavily dressed and was delicious! I also got a glorious mocha! Sooooooo delicious! Maybe I need to start a tab on here where I just review mochas where ever I go!

By 8:30 last night, I was still kind of full, but knew I'd get hungry if I didn't eat something. Do you ever have those moments where you don't really feel like eating anything, but then kinda feel like eating everything, at the same time? It was one of those. So, I made a sampler plate!

Trader Joe's Meatless Meatballs, Trader Joe's Cucumber Wontons, Gardein Chicken Nuggets & Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. Oh yeah, this all hit the spot!

Threw on a little of these and I was set! Well, last sample to be had:

Whole Foods Organic Dark Chocolate Chunks. Oh. Yeah.

I went to bed a happy girl. Unfortunately, that didn't last because a friend of mine called me at 1am and we talked for 2 hours. It was a good talk though...sometimes those middle of the night ones are!

I started off this morning with a little banana boat that I've seen everyone making for a snack. I don't know if my nanner was too ripe or if the almond butter was too drippy, but this was a hot mess! You can even see in the picture that it is starting to fall apart!

I ate this in about 1 minute flat since it was oozing AB everywhere and setting it down would surely mean not being about to pick it up again in one piece! It was yummy, but I'll have to be a little more strategic if I make another one!

I have about 500 things on my to-do list today, none of which are fun :(

Lots of errands, lots of cleaning, working out and making some food. Good times!


  1. wow 500 things!! U busy girl!!!!!!

    Glad to hear that movie was good and not as confusing as everyone is saying it is!

    Loving the almond butter and banana combo, my son loves that! Mine always fall apart and ooze too!!

    Love you and yay for going to target too today! Hope you got some goodies! xoxo

  2. OK..a half of a vodka and cranberry would of make me feel the same don't feel bad :-)

    Have a great rest of your weekend, hope you got all your errand done!!

  3. TJ's meatless meatballs are da bomb!

    i saw inception weeks ago and i'm still thinking about it!

  4. I loved Inception too -- I was confused at first but it all made sense by the end...I do think if I had taken a bathroom break during the movie I would have been totally lost :)

    I love bananas/nut butter -- and mine ooze out like that too, it is so good!

  5. I can't wait to see Inception! Thanks for not giving anything away :)

    Good luck on your 500 to-do's!
