Hot light, food follies and long awaited premieres
I swear I am in need of a mental vacation soon. I feel like I'm being stretched really thin lately and am so tired. I got the bright idea of adding another project to the Mr's b-day decorations after looking at pics of the venue and feeling like the front wall needed something. So I did a bunting project and it turned out well, I'll get pics in a few weeks when I've decorated and it's all pulled together. I've got several projects all coming due at the same time plus making sure we stay on top of our program. I was soo close to wanting to skip last night but I felt much better after our workout.
Saturday morning (high cal day) my craving had been chosen for me. You're going to think I made this up but I swear I didn't. I woke up with Neil Diamond singing..."turn on your...
That's right. I literally heard "turn on your hot light" as I woke up. I have not heard Neil Diamond in years and we listen to a playlist at night so there was no ear worm. I think this would make an excellent campaign for Krispy Kreme and have Neil holding a hot off the conveyor glazed donut in one of his sparkly outfits. Man those little effers are good.
After that, we shopped all morning including scooping up EIGHT bottles of Trader Joe's spiced cider. That's right. Of course seven of them are for the Mr's birthday party but we enjoyed some with lunch and it was heaven. Then we came home for some football, rest and projects. I would've loved to have slept in Sunday morning but we had some grocery shopping to do. Sigh. Everything was really catching up to me by then and my attitude was souring. When we got back, we had to take a nap, there was no avoiding it. I wish I could say I slept right through but I didn't. Um...2 hours later, I woke up stressed because I had stuff we needed to get done. Plus we were starving so I made some lunch in a hurry which included a new to us dish from Trader Joe's...
I put it in my microwaveable rice cooker and in 4 minutes it was ready. I microwaved then grilled the chicken apple sausage we bought from TJ's that morning and it made for a good quick meal coming in at 390 calories.
Would I get it again? Probably. You definitely couldn't have it without some kind of accompaniment or at least we couldn't because about 2-3 hours later I was ravenous again. I was really feeling like I didn't want to work out the later it got. Of course we did. Total Trainer and Turbo Fire HIIT 30. Then I was ready to eat my hand but instead I ate something much better...chicken tacos with arugula and cheddar chipotle mini potato bites.
Then it was time to settle in for the premiere of one of my surprise likes from last year...
I was bawling like an idiot 5 minutes in. What a dork. Of course the Mr had to say "the last time we saw this show..." which means we were somewhere good...like Volcano, Hawaii. That was a great night. We got really sh*tty food from a convenience store because they don't have many restaurant options especially when you're indecisive and wait too long. The oven was completely not accurate and I burned the pizza (nay, super well done) and I think had a candy bar or something. Super nutritious yo. But it was a fun night after a lot of days of go go go and involved in a hit and run the day before and rental fiascos. Yeesh.
Then it was time for the REAL premiere we were waiting for...
Lots of stuff I have no choice but to get done this week. If I am not clinically insane by the weekend, it'll be a miracle.
Did you watch any good premieres this weekend? Any premieres you're looking forward to?
