Zone Out

by Meghann on September 28, 2011

I’m not sure where my mind is tonight. I’ve watched three straight episodes of Felicity on Netflix (love the nostalgic flashback to the late 90s – it’s a lot different watching post-college over pre-high school) and don’t feel like doing much else. It’s a zone-out night around here and i’m good with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner was a BIG improvement over last night’s fail. Derek actually ate all of it then went back for seconds. A good sign I did something right.

I started with some onion (fully peeled!), two Field Roast Apple Sausage, asparagus, and fresh garlic.

Added a couple of big handfuls of spinach.

And a box of Near East Quinoa Blend.

Cook. Mix. Done.

I added some raisins because, well, every rice dish needs raisins in my opinion. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dessert was a VitaTop Muffin (BOGO at Publix! <- the only time I buy them)

Back to Felicity! It’s the episode where she has to choose to go to Berlin with Nole or on the road trip with Ben and I can’t remember which one she chooses!!

New Fall Shows

Just for fun… here’s some of my thoughts on some of the new shows I’ve caught so far. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Up All Night (NBC)

I just caught up on all the new episodes tonight and loved it. Will Arnett is a genius. Christina Applegate is a genius. How could they go wrong? It’s a great light comedy about a couple of new parents who aren’t quite ready for what they’ve gotten themselves into. Lots of easy laughs without going too overboard. I hope this one stays. ๐Ÿ™‚

The New Girl (FOX)

eh… I could take it or leave it on this show. The premise sort of reminds me of My Boys from TBS with the boys v. girls ratio. I watched an episode and thought Zooey Deschanel was cute and adorable, but I didn’t feel the need to watch any more.

Two Broke Girls (CBS)

Looks like CBS is taking it back old school with this show. It had a very 90s feel to it and reminded me of the the stuff I used to watch in high school. The premise of a Paris Hilton clone being forced to work in a greasy diner is a funny one, but I don’t see this show making it to January.

The Secret Circle (CW)

I’m a sucker for mysterious high school based dramas (I <3 ABC Family!), so this show was right up my ally. When I returned from Augusta on Tuesday, this was the first show I watched on the DVR. The pilot was so good, I couldn’t wait to see what the circle of witches was up to in episode two. I’m hooked!

Pan Am (ABC)

Loved the idea of this show – and the previews really sold me on it – but the actual pilot didn’t have the teeth I was hoping for. Hopefully the second episode will help sell me on it.

What do you think? Which new shows have you loved and hated so far?

Tennis Balls Are My Friend

September 28, 2011

To say my meals are random would be an understatement. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The problem is, I have my mind set on one thing, then I look in the fridge and everything starts looking good. Mmmmm… apple sauce? That sounds good! Green beans?! Yes, please! Wait, something is missing. Dates. Definitely. Dates. And then I end up more ยป

Do These Shoes Make Me Look Fast?

September 28, 2011

My morning running buddy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Doesn’t she look excited to run?! Maddie and I took off for a nice and easy 4 mile recovery run this morning. It was slow, but at least it wasn’t painful. Each mile was better than the last and we ended up with negative splits across the board. I was more ยป
