i want a t-shirt made for me that instead of saying “i <3 ny” (because duh of course i do) it says “i <3 sundays”
can i get an amen for the love of sundays?
i feel like i saw this every sunday. but sundays are just number one in my heart.
in the summer it’s so peaceful out east with the glorious weather, the sound of the water on the bulkhead and the heat ridden abominable hair poof you wake up with
and in the winter, the thought of chili, football & deej screaming at the top of her lungs at the giants brings a warm joy to my heart.
anyways. i digress.
this weekend has been such a blasty for me :) friday night was spent saying goodbye to a bestie of mine as she moves on with her life to the
boondocks of upstate new york.
going away parties rock.
saying goodbye does not.
being the 5th wheel rocks.
losing your big toe because everybody steps on it does not.
& for the record there’s no better way to pregame for a party then with pizza.
…quinoa pizza that is…
you’re allowed to be jealous of this.
saturday morning i rallied after a late night out to get in a solid gym sesh before having to place nurse nancy to deej coming home from her dentist teeth removal sesh.
two different saturday sessions. mine was so much better.
hers was so much funnier.
35 minutes ellipitcal (cross-country 3 routine with varied resistances ranging from 8-12) + chest & triceps
single set: barbell chest press (with feet in air to engage core) 3 sets 12 (40lb barbell)
- tricep dips 3 sets 15 (bodyweight)
- dumbbell snatch 3 sets 15 (20lb dumbbell)
single set: bench pushups 3 sets 15 (bodyweight)
- cable crossover 3 sets 12 (40lbs)
- single arm tricep pushdown 3 sets 12 each arm (15lbs)
single set: v-rope tricep pressdown 4 sets
single set: close grip dumbbell chest press 3 sets 12 (15lb dumbbels; 30lbs)
note to self: deej is not fun on Novocain.
another note to self: trader joe’s blueberry flaxseed needs to happen more in my life.
overnight oat bran + cottage cheese + peanut flour paste + raspberry jelly + joe’s blueberry flaxseed
oh & another thing.
french press > coffee pot
someday i’m going into the cawf biz with my coffee guru.
there was not enough caffiene in the world to get me through deej on pain killers.
she’d murder me if i posted the picture of her post dentist.
i won’t for the sake of me being allowed to live home
for the next 30+ years until i make money
i’ll show you our creepy & mysterious chauffeur though..
eventually we made it out east, got our lunch faces on, took care of the sick patient, & spent the ladder (latter?) part of the afternoon being gossipy chicks in the sun.
we’re accepting applications to be a member of the golean family now. it’s a highly coveted spot so get your apps in quick!
the golean ladies (jen, deej, grammy & myself) wanted a low-key lazy saturday night dinner so we decided chinese was the best solution.
i’m all about the chinese steamed veggies & shrimp.
chinese places just know how to get huge shrimp & steamed veg just right.
they went the chinese flavour route.
while i took my steamed veg & shrimp, added some cued eggplant & brox and drenched the bowl of gloriousness in balsamic & goat cheese.
i do believe the chinese menu should have “huge @$$ bowl of veggies & shrimp drenched in ballsgasmic & goat cheesiness” as an option
oh. and for the record, it’s completely normal to eat goat cheese & balsamic ridden veggies with chopsticks.
it’s all about the blending of cultures, no?
it’s also all about deej & jen de-rooting the orange glow my hair has come accustomed to over the summer while enjoying decaf cawfs & a bag of burnt popcorn.
love you summer weekends.
love you golean girls.
speaking of summer. my summer has come to a conclusion. sad sad sad story. this week i’ll be starting up classes & a crazy work schedule, finding myself driving all over new york’s 5 burroughs. so if you see a girl in a navy malibu taking awkward car self portraits, honk your horn. that’s me.
i’m not sure how my blogging schedule’s going to be but i’m sure i’ll be popping in and out when i can! promise me you won’t leave me.
for now. i’m going to enjoy my breakfast, drink my liquid stim & spend the day farm standing, yard saling, & basking in the glorious rays the day has to provide :)
now get off your computer & do the same!
- what’s something you did this weekend that you loved every minute of but haven’t thought about how much you enjoyed it until this minute? for me it was spending time on friday night with my group of besties :) we haven’t been all together at the same time in a while and it was just so nice to be with everyone :) love them!
- how are you spending your sunday? sun, food, family & duh the emmy’s tonight.
