Happy Friday! Did this week drag, or did this week draggggg? Having a 5 day work week sandwiched between 2 long weekends certainly makes the days drag forevs in my books.
I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend with several fun things planned! There will be a lot of sleeping in and shopping to be done, along with a movie date with my Momma to see Safe Haven (Josh Duhamel, droooool!), a dinner date with Linds and our college roomie, Lauren, and possibly sushi with Mark.
Last night after work, Linds and I had a fro-yo date set for 6 pm at our favorite fro-yo cafe. Is it a cafe, a store, a shop.. what do you all call it?
I had a little time to kill before our date, so I headed over to Target since I had a new $25 gift card in my clutch. Something really weird happened at Target. I left with only making an $8 and change purchase. How is that possible?
Along with a card, I purchased this necklace for $5.98ish. Holy clearance!! I bought this necklace in different colors for my Aunt and Chelsey for Christmas, so I couldn’t pass up the 75% clearance price. Happy Valentine’s Day to me!
Back to fro-yo talk. I’m pretty proud of myself because I figured out how to make THE ultimate fro-yo bowl. The secret?… layers!
See that magnificent layer of rainbow jimmies? That seriously made this the best bowl I’ve ever had! I started off with a swirl of Tahitian Vanilla before putting 40 scoops of jimmies on top. I then topped that with a layer of Pistachio (omg) fro-yo and a dollop of Salted Caramel Pretzel (double omg). Bluebs, more jimmies, and then a mountain of whip cream later and I was in fro-yo heaven.
We even scored a sweet BOGO 50% off Valentine’s special! At this point we feel like family with the owners so that deal was well deserved. I mad fun of a man who was getting fro-yo by himself. I even commented how that’s worse than going to a bar alone. Then I realized he had a ring on, and bought 2 bowls to go. Lucky wife. Forget chocolate, flowers, teddy bears, and jewelry. I hope my future boyfriend/fiance/husband treats me to fro-yo every Valentine’s Day. Husband of the year and the only way to my heart.
When I got home, the torture continued. Remember how yesterday morning my coworker gave me a cookie and pb brownie? Well, my Dad immediately told me that his client gave him an ice cream cake.
Did you know that ICE CREAM CAKE IS MY FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD?!!! Shouty caps were necessary. Since we’re playing the “Did you know game,” whenever my ex would get mad at me, he’d start texting in shouty capitals. For instance, I’d get the, “ARE YOU SERIOUS?” line a lot.
So when my Dad showed me that beast, I exclaimed, “ARE YOU SERIOUS.” And yes, that’s how it would have looked on paper if there had been a stenographer in the room.
I was scolded for eating 80% of the frosting. Oh well, it’s Valentine’s Day so my parents have to love me unconditionally.
For the first time since my oblique strain, I was able to run 4 completely pain-free miles! Not even a single cramp. Fist pump, high-five, thumbs up!
Last night as we were leaving work, my coworker, Jen
peer pressured convinced me to try Body Pump with her. We’re both BP virgins and have been terrified to try it, so when she mentioned she was interested, I decided I’d rather be a newbie and look like a lost little girl with her. The class is at noon, so you have several hours to give me ALL THE ADVICE POSSIBLE.
If this is the last blog post I ever write, please know that I didn’t survive Body Pump.
