The day has not been to shabby. Although, there have been a few diversions...
After waking up to my more than unusual sleep patters (alarm set for 8:33, two 5 minute snooze sessions and then I flip the tv on at 8:43--then I lay there) Quite the action was happenin on radar. Good amounts of radar indicated rotation and strong winds. Intense storms! I love red on the radar. Matthew always thinks it's horrible when I hear about a big meteorological disaster somewhere and get excited. IT IS EXCITING!..and I can't necessarily feel bad for the people all right through tornado alley unless they absolutely have to be there. This was in MO
After I caught the weather news, I snagged a few moments of Essence of Emeril, proceeded to eat breakfast, and got ready for skating which never really ended up happening because there was no public skate (so glad I drove there to find that out.) I figured this was a sign that I forsure needed a breakI went to my gym and just did a few weights. I also got a good walk in. That will suffice. Although, I would have loved to have kicked skating's ass today after how bad yesterday went.
I had a lovely little lunch of pineapple, strawberry, and a homemade baguette. I made a shy attempt at eating my salad but I went for the goods. We have the coolest little tool for pineapple. I have to recommend it. It works so well! Matthew got my mom a Williams-Sonoma gift card and she bought this little thing and everytime she uses it she feels the need to show everyone around her how it works. ha ha. I have been CRAVING Red Mango all day, even though we went twice last week and last night. I have discovered a new favorite topping! MOCHI! I must get it again soon!
I love drinking the juice out of the pineapple
I just saw Caitlyn for the first time in ages! She called me out of the blue and thank goodness we were able to get a lil bit of catch up time in. We have good talks so I'm glad I was able to see her. I am excited to see where else the night leads. I think Matthew and I will head up to Seven Bridges tonight to see the competition. Dinner is still a mystery! --it makes it that much harder to dress! ;) YAY! my tastebuds are so excited.
I am anticipating mothers day. My mom really wants me to make her this dish I put together. She doesn't want me to get her anything (of course) but I shall atleast get her a great bouquet from Trader Joes. I love fresh flowers that don't require the packet of powder food. They are at the summerhouse for the weekend. Too bad I open tomorrow. I hate when I have a good Friday night planned that is ruined by an Saturday morning open. Rats.
AW, I hear the ice cream truck. I always used to get the Mickey Mouse ears! So cute. Those were the days. Enjoy your night, wherever you may be spending it!
