1,2,3; protein, carb and veg-gie
(Sung to the tune of Britney’s 123)
I feel oddly optimistic for the day today! Probably mostly because it’s Friday, but also because last night I had the entire night off last night (after working at the BIC all day.) I actually even left the office a couple hours early to boot!
I had to pick up Niko from the groomer’s where she’d been all morning and then take her to the doggie doctor to get a shot. It was a big day for the little trooper. She was rewarded with a trip to PetCo where she picked out a new toy:
And then she proceeded to snap at a huge St. Bernard. Not a smart move, Nik.
By the time we got home, I would usually just be leaving work! Typically, evenings are filled with clients, volleyball, or yoga class, so I relish the nights where I can read, cook, and relax 😀
And last night, I accomplished all three.
Finished Catching Fire, and now moving on to Chelsea Handler’s My Horizontal Life. Oh yes, brain cell stimulation right here!
TJ’s Purple Moon $3 buck chuck – mmm hmmm
And I cooked.
Since giving up meat over a year ago, one thing I miss every now and then is dinner simplicity. No more protein + a carb + a veg = dinner. This is great most of the time – it enables me to be more creative with my meals and has broadened my horizons into the little world of cooking.
However, when wanting a simplistic 1 + 1 + 1 dinner, I turn to tofu.
Carb (roasted butternut squash)
Veggie (roasted B sprouts)
So I really need your help. I have a question for you guys. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and Shane and I aren’t getting anything for each other for it (I’ve never been a huge fan of the holiday because I feel like there’s so much pressure on it for couples and then it’s kind of too much of a in-your-face-lovey day for singles.) However, I still want to grab Shane some cologne. He’s been out for literally months and I just miss that yummy cologne smell! So in essence it’d be a gift for me 😉
So – ladies, what’s your favorite cologne to smell on a guy?? And guys – what are you wearing??
And don’t worry, Shane’s been waaay too busy at work lately, so I’m not letting the cat out of the bag
I’m off to do a little more blog work and then hit up a spin class! I have a tickle in my throat…and I’m desperately hoping it doesn’t last. It seems like there’s been more sick people at work than healthy, so here’s hoping…
Tonight Shane and I have a little adventure planned. Not sure what we are getting ourselves into with this one, but you can be sure I’ll blog about it tomorrow 😛
Happy Friday, everyone! 😀
