Hello October!

by Meghann on October 1, 2011

Why, hello October! I’m so glad you could join us! Thanks for bringing the coolers temps and low humidity with you – YOU ROCK!

The weather today has been absolutely amazing. I almost forgot what it feels like to walk outside and not have your shirt instantly stick to your sweaty skin or to have your hair poof two inches in a matter of minutes. It feels pretty good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek and I took full advantage of the beautiful weather by taking Maddie for a nice long walk around a local park.

Here’s a question for ya – When’s the last time you did monkey bars?

I saw a set on our walk and thought “oh, fun! I haven’t done those in ages!”

Turns out there’s a reason its been ages. Ouch. My arms are going to hate me in the morning.

On another note, I now want my own set for the backyard. Ten weeks of daily practice and I’ll have (less scary) Madonna arms in no time. Sign me up! ๐Ÿ™‚

From the park, we dines al fresco with Maddie at Burrito Boarder.

Derek had a craving for a burrito and I had a coupon. Win. Win.

I ordered the salad bowl with the baja fish (which was extra flavorful), corn salsa, cheese, cilantro, and chips.

The fish was surprisingly the best part about the salad. It was heavily coated in taco seasoning and perfectly cooked. I think it’s the best fish I’ve ever had from a burrito place.

We took Maddie to a dog store and walked around bit before heading home.

I enjoyed some left over fruit salad, vanilla yogurt, and Uncle Sam’s cereal as a late afternoon snack.

Dinner was a very un-photogenic bowl of 15 Bean Soup. I made it from a bean mix and had approximately 5 minutes to eat it before we were on our way out the door for our movie.

It was still good. ๐Ÿ™‚

The movie we were late for? Moneyball

My thoughts? Eh. It was ok. Even Derek (the baseball fanatic) thought it was weak. He was biting his tongue over all the factual errors the whole movie. I was biting my tongue over all the dip. Gag.

I snuck one of my friend Val’s pumpkin cupcakes in for dessert.

It distracted me from the chewing and spitting.

Cupcakes are good at that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Its been a long day and I’m ready for bed.

Good Night!

Breakfast Is My Happy Hour

October 1, 2011

Well, breakfast is one of my happy hours. ๐Ÿ˜‰ What is a happy hour anyways? In college it meant great discounts on drinks (hello three for one drafts at the cheap bar around the corner!) and – granted – it still means that (two for one margaritas all day, everyday at Chilis!), but it also more ยป
