It has been raining and raining and just when you think it may stop raining, the ground is wet and there is mist- everywhere. I think I've forgotten when the sunshine looks like. The way it feels when it hits your face at all different angles. Ya know so you don't have to reapply on tan towels for a little bit of color. I am translucent ya'll. I thank the spray tan and tan towel powers at be everyday for fake bake. Glowing in the dark just ain't a good look. I am a sunny girl. Yellow is one of my favorite colors, and I yearn for sunshine.
I can handle the cold, without the over cast, and the mist. I have a new found respect for writers who can make the Pacific Northwest sound so utterly romantic in books. The misty rain and overcast cold- pfffff. I am OVER IT! I want to get out on the pavement, feel the sun on my face, music filling my ear buds, rocking a pair of hot shorts, and sweating out all the toxins. I long for Spring.
It's not looking likely I'll get in my five mile run outside tomorrow. I'm going to have to do some more rearranging of my work out schedule. I did a four mile run on the dreadmill last week and I had to dig way deep deep down to pull that off. I know if worst comes to worst, I'll do it again. I need to take it to the pavement. I need sunshine, come on weather cooperate!
Thursday, I'm going to do a Question and Answer post- phew y'all have give me a lot to work with! Keep sending the questions!
Last night, I made my skinny girl version of the Southwest grilled chicken salad, while watching the crazy train that is The Bachelor.
6 oz boneless skinless grilled chicken breast
1/4 low sodium black beans
1/2 cup no salt added corn
1/4 cup pineapple peach salsa
1/4 plain non fat Greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning mixed in
Half Bag of Pre Chopped Lettuce of choice
Back to the Bachelor-
Kee yaw ya'll Sean is one of the best looking Bachelor's I can ever remember watching. The show is cheesy and predictable, but I can't look away. My husband provides some incredibly interesting and hysterical commentary. I'm trying to con him into a guest post concerning the male Point of View on the crazy train that is this show. Stay tuned- I promise it will be hysterical.
Do you watch The Bachelor? Who are your favorite "contestants?"
Leslie- She's seems normal, nice, like a girl you could easily be friend with, and I found her awkwardness endearing- I mean the whole show has to be one big barrel of awkward I like that she acknowledged it.
Desiree- she reminds me of one of my very best friends, so obviously I just like her!
Catherine- She strikes me as the voice of reason in the group of crazy. That and the moment Sean walked into the cocktail party/ rose ceremony/ weekly hormonal disaster that is this show, she handed him what looked like a double whiskey on the rocks. Holla, girl knows how snag her a man!
and I'm off to my real life. If only I could get paid for my expert reviews on reality TV and complaining about the weather. Oh life you are so unfair! (Drama lama says, "I'm ssssooo sure!")
