Happy week, everyone!
Haha, the President of my firm walked in this morning and said that and it totally threw us off. Not happy Monday, happy week! It has a nice ring to it!
Sorry for the radio silence lately. It is pretty crazy to have a job where I am more or less busy from the moment I arrive till the moment I leave pretty much every day! I have several blog posts planned (like a budget update!), it’s all just a matter of carving out some time to churn them out!
On Friday evening, I had a lovely walk home from work at dusk. I love that I regularly get to walk past so many Downtown Sacramento landmarks!
I went home, nommed on a veggie-packed dinner (I’ve been trying to load most of my calories into breakfast & lunch, so I’ve been having a lot of salad & roasted veggies for dinner), then headed out to our favorite karaoke bar The Distillery for Angelique’s birthday! I sang my go-to, “Piano Man”, and a hilarious rendition of “Bug-a-Boo” with Yvette.
Unfortunately Danielle and I never got to sing Gaga & Beyonce’s “Telephone”, but she made up for it by KILLING it on her own with “Bad Romance”.. she serenaded her boyfriend Noel, which made for some hilarious photos (see above)! I also got guilted into joining my friend Greg on stage for Journey’s “Faithfully”, because I snuck his name in to sing it without him knowing 😉
Despite staying out a little later than planned at karaoke (they didn’t call up Yvette and I to sing until almost 1am!), I didn’t have much to drink so I still made it out for my 10 miler the next morning. I ran the same distance as last week, but was exactly one minute slower. Either way, better than not doing it at all, right? 🙂
Next on the itinerary was C.J. and Julie’s baby shower. C.J. is a longtime dodgeball friend and teammate of mine, and we are all so excited for their little ninja to arrive next month! The shower was hosted at the daycare that C.J. and Julie are opening with some friends- he showed us around and it was awesome! It was a great shower all around, complete with dirty diaper guessing games, a nacho bar, and tricycle races 😉
That night was my good friend Kristin’s birthday party. It was a pajama pub crawl, so we all got decked out in onesies! I wish I had more pictures besides this one of Yvette and I getting ready- let’s just say we got some interesting looks throughout the evening 😉
As you all know, the Super Bowl was yesterday. There was no way I’d be watching anywhere besides at my friend Dave’s house! (Where we had all of our Monday Night Football meals) I printed out a fun predictions questionnaire and there was food GALORE. Lots of different chicken wings, lumpia, steak sliders, cupcakes, variety packs from Popeyes and Taco Bell LOL, and I made sure to bring that spinach salad you see right up there 😉
Obviously the game itself wasn’t great, but there were definitely a few gems in the commercial department! I think Doritos always has great commercials, and of course Budweiser’s Puppy Love commercial made me squeal from the cuteness!
Hope you all have a great week! With any luck you’ll be hearing from me soon 🙂
