Blue or Green?

by Meghann on March 23, 2010

Quick! I need your help!

I have a photo shoot on Friday and am trying to decide on an outfit that makes me look fit and confident.

Here are my options…

Blue

Green

So… what do you think?

(p.s. hopefully the photos by the professional will look a little better than my self portraits 😉 )

Clearly this decision has been eating away at me all day. I made stops at Kohl’s, Marshalls, Target, and Sports Authority this evening trying to find anything that would work. No running clothes peaked my interest, but I did walk away with some new work pants, a dress that fits like a glove, and some jewelry to match. You win some, you lose some, right?

This afternoon I snacked on some pretzel and chocolate graham goldfish.

I really worked up an appetite shopping after work this evening. By the time I got home, I was more that ready to eat the delicious meal I had pre-planned in my head.

Behind the ice cream, frozen fruit, and girl scout cookies lies a package of salmon patties in my freezer that tend to be ‘out of sight/ out of mind.’ I rediscovered them over the weekend and grilled one on the george foreman this evening with a little barbeque sauce.

The patty went between a new flat-out fold wrap some spinach and more bbq sauce.

The salmon patty really is quite tasty, it’s a shame the ice cream hides them so well in the freezer!

Sweet potato fries are tasty, too.

Oh, and can’t forget the pickles.

A tiny piece of pumpkin chocolate chip bread with thin mint ice cream appeased my sweet tooth for dessert.

Blog Hug

My heart goes out to Ryan and Evan from Greens for Good tonight who lost their beloved cat, Harvey.

RIP Harvey. 🙁

When I lost Abbie last year, one particular poem helped me with the grieving process and tonight I would like to dedicate the poem to Harvey.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
