Pandora Jams

by Meghann on November 20, 2009

First off I have another new obsession – the Glee inspired station on Pandora! Not only does it play songs as performed by the Glee cast, but it has a great mix of Disney and other musical inspired songs. I have been jamming to Hairspray, Rent, and Grease at my desk all morning.

Have I ever mentioned that I was a huge musical theatre buff in High School?

I had it in my head that I was going to be a famous actress one day. I was in a few plays and did the whole drama camp thing, but it was painfully obvious that I couldn’t carry a tune and had no rhythm at all.

It was still fun and if I had the opportunity to perform on stage I would do it again in a heart beat!

Any other former musical theater stars out there?

My snack this morning was definitely on the sweet side. A serving of Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix from Target.

I loved this trail mix last year, but now I think it made me a tad too sweet to handle on its own. Perhaps it would make a better overnight oats or yogurt topping?

Thanks to the Thanksgiving Challenge my fridge appears to be a bit on the empty side and oddly enough my pantry has seen better days as well. All my pantry staples seem to have disappeared!  The one downside to the Thanksgiving Challenge is I can tell its going to be a very expensive trip to the grocery store once the challenge is over. I will need to restock all the staples I would usually replace on a here and there basis. This got me thinking that the bloated trip may cancel out the idea of saving money during the challenge if I just spend all the extra money once the month is over on stuff I would have been buying through the month in the first place. Thoughts?

In any case I headed to the freezer for lunch.

A New Obsession

November 20, 2009

I have a new obsession and its name is ExerciseTV on Demand. Having ready-to-go work outs at the touch of a button is just so easy and since there are so many options I feel like I never get bored. I do miss my days of creating my own living room or tennis court boot more »
