The winter months make me want to cuddle my feet in Uggs, slippers and comfy socks. Have you seen these cozy looking slipper socks at Target? I think I need them!
Instead of ordering pizza Friday night for my son and his friends, I picked up a pizza from Fresh Market during the day to heat up at dinner time. The boys LOVED it (I knew they would, one of my best friends gets this pizza for the kids all of the time) and I saved money because it’s much cheaper than ordering a pie from the pizza place.
I needed a big bowl of every roasted vegetable available at the Whole Foods Food Bar. And oh, Whole Food’s mashed sweet potatoes, which I took a dollop of for this bowl, are the best I have ever had.
I should have bought this Be Nice mug at Target. I think it would serve as a great reminder for me throughout the day as I sip my coffee and struggle to tolerate people.
I am a nice person, I swear! I just have a really low tolerance for most humans and their nonsense.
Until recently, the last time I had been to PF Chang’s was back in the year 2000 around the time that I got engaged. Even though PF Chang’s had opened a nice new location near me a couple of years ago, I just didn’t care to go BUT NOW it is slowly becoming one of my favorites.
This sushi roll is at the top of my sushi favorites list.
The Buddha feast is made with me in mind – lots of veggies, sauce on the side for dipping and fluffy brown rice. They offer quinoa for an additional charge but I always go with the brown rice. I eat enough quinoa at home, I don’t need to pay extra when I like brown rice and have no reason to avoid the grain.
I needed this slice of chocolate cake. That’s right, needed. After an awesome long run Saturday morning, chocolate cake referred to as the “chocolate wall” on the menu becomes a necessary part of my running recovery. Gosh I felt so good after eating this!
Since there is no school today and the Islanders were playing a late afternoon game yesterday, I swallowed my childish pride and took the train to Brooklyn to see my second regular season home game at the Barclays Center.
I am just not good with change okay? I have been trying to be a big girl about it but it’s hard. When you spend 30 years of your life attending games 10 minutes from your house at a building that once felt like your second home and now have to take a train (and sometimes change at Jamaica!) to see your team play in what feels like a foreign place, it will take time to adjust. And I am not even trying to adjust, I just sit and complain. Actually, stand and complain, I couldn’t even get a seat on the train.
Half Marathon Weather Watch:
Of course they are tracking our first winter storm of the season for this weekend. Of course they are. I have heard anything from 3-5 inches to a good foot of snow approaching the New York area by Friday night.
And of course I keep texting Michele with the weather updates just so she can freak along with me. Although, I am totally okay with not running this race. I would just rather know in advance that it’s not going to happen for me rather than have to wonder when I should get into the city to pick up my number and if I even need to do so.
