I seriously don’t think you want to see a month of eats, but it’s been pretty good stuff (of course). Smoothies, salads, curries, and other various fun stuff. Now that it’s back to school, add in things like homemade granola bars, cookies, etc – and it’s been a busy kitchen!
Same as always – runs and yoga. BUT…add in soccer too!
My neighbor invited me to play on a local soccer club team, and I jumped at the chance! 1 – it’s my favorite sport EVER. 2 – great way to meet new people (there are 7 teams in our club), and 3 – great exercise.
We had our first game last week Sunday. I’m still sore….
Well, it’s been a busy month! R and I spent most of a week in DC! We got to visit friends, play in the city, and mostly chill in the hotel room ordering room service!
We had fun wandering around, hitting up some museums and a capitol tour that my friend J set up for us! (he works on The Hill).
We both agreed that the Hill tour was the best!
I had a quick overnight trip to NYC for work. The day I left, I went to a drag show called Drag Yourself to Brunch with my oldest A and my friend A!
I haven’t voluntarily watched scary movies for many years. What’s funny, is I used to love them. I think having kids made me get more easily spooked, but the point is, I’ve only watched a scary movie in the past 10 years or more if I lost a bet. After a few that horrified me (hello Event Horizon), I just stopped betting.
Well, It just came out, and I read that book when I was 14. While it scared the every living crap out of me, I still loved it. So…I just HAD to go see the movie.
And anyone who knows anything realizes that the only way to see a scary movie is if you have a cocoon of safety. Aka – a blanket that you can bury yourself in, never touch the floor, and pull it up so only your eyes are showing in the scary parts. Nothing can hurt you if you have a cocoon of safety.
So yes. At nearly 44 years old, I brought a blanket to the movie theater and survived It!
After the movie it was time to teach cribbage! Of course the person I taught is freakishly competitive and this may come back to bite me someday, but I can take it.
Oh – I saw Depeche Mode!!!! A quick trip BACK to DC (and a totally awesome one at that – spent a ton of time in bed!). I’d seen them twice before, but not since 1991. I’ve been a huge fan since I was 13 or so, and about lost it when I found they were coming close by. I met a woman from Germany there who’d seen them 33 times! I felt a bit like a poser fan, but got over it quickly. The show was awesome and they performed as well as they did 20+ years ago.
On Sunday it was the inaugural gathering of a local Chelsea FC fan club!! We got together at Keagan’s Irish Pub in Virginia Beach, watched Chelsea win, had some drinks, and the fun of enjoying my fav sport with other people who love it to!
R turned 14 this week!! We hung out, watched a movie, had dinner (tofu pineapple stir-fry), had cake, and opened presents!
I refer to my kids as cabbages (comes from a French term of endearment). Anyway, A decorated her cake 🙂
Random other fun things…
Okay, off to get this weekend rolling! So wild and crazy, that I’m in my jammies at 630 on a Friday night! I know – I need to pace myself…
