A Friday on the Couch

by Meghann on September 10, 2010

Awww…. Fridays. How I love thee. ๐Ÿ™‚

Especially Fridays where the only thing on my agenda is coming home and sitting on my bum in front of the tv.

Yes, those Fridays are the best ones of all. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a peach on my way out of the office this afternoon.

I didn’t want dinner to take away from my quality time with my couch and DVR, so I made it quick and simple.

You know what would make a lazy Friday night better?…..

Derek!!! He makes everything better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek requested cookies and when my man requests cookies, I deliver cookies. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok, I was really the one who wanted cookies, but I thought that sounded like a good segway. If Derek was the only one who wanted cookies I would have told him to make them himself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I followed this recipe for Chocolate Chunk and Walnut Cookies only I didn’t have walnuts so I used pecans and the chocolate bar I used for the chocolate chunks melted in the batter.

The melted chocolate was actually a blessing in disguise. It resulted in a chocolatey, nutty cookie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek and I had our cookies with ice cream. Can you guess which bowl is mine?

Tomorrow Derek and I will be running the Autumn Rock n Run 5k with my sister and little brother.

I kicked race season off with this race last year (recap here) and had a blast!

Can’t wait to do it again!

Now, I still can’t decide if I should go all out or run beside my little brother.

Decisions, Decisions…

I guess it’s a decision I’m going to have to make in the morning.

Good night!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Going to Faint

Looks like the majority of you believe the girl should give the engagement ring back. And you know what? I agree! And so did the radio listeners. Per the rules of โ€˜side-takersโ€™ the girl  will now have to return the $17,000 ring to her ex-fiance. You should have heard the excitement in the guyโ€™s voice more ยป
