Hi guys! Wow what a jam packed Friday! And it as even my half day today at work! It was jam-packed with fun-ness though:D
After work I decided Niko needed a little spiffing up, so I took her to the groomers. Poor little girl was shaking like a leaf 😦 No matter which groomer I bring her to, it seems like they never treat her well enough. Then again, no one’s good enough for my little Nikster 😉 I came to get her a little early and they were just finishing up.
The finished product:
AWWWWWW. Daddy was sure to have the bows out in no time 😉 He wants Niko to be a tom-boy, haha.
While she was getting prettified, I was out spending teh moneyz. First I just had to go to the Naturally Yours health food store to use my newly realized employee discount.
But that only took up about 30 minutes. So I headed into Borders and looked at a couple cook books:
I have an obsession with Alton, and I really want this book in the future. I like him so much I left an Operation Beautiful
note in it, and then left it out on a table in hopes that someone would open it up and see it today:
Then…I did it! I bought the cook book I’ve been wanting for-ev-er!
I was going to wait, and get it on Amazon for cheaper than $28, but I managed to sweet talk the cashier into giving me a 30% discount 😉 Score!! I think it was my karma payback from leaving an OB note, heheh
Naturally, I went next door to Fresh Market
to pick up ingredients for two meals I want to make from the book this weekend. And I did what I said I wouldn’t do yesterday:
I bought over-priced produce from FM. But it was all organic!! I also found another unicorn!
I had actually gotten in line, having given up on finding them, and then I spotted them in the lady ahead of me in line’s cart. Obviously, I said, “Where did you find those Flat Out wraps?!” She then pointed me in the right direction, and I got out of line to grab them up. Can’t wait to try ’em!
I love that all their meat is all-natural or organic. Buying sketchie meat makes me nervous.
After a short nap, it was time to ZUMBA it up!!! I met my friend at the gym and there were SO many people that attended. The energy was awesome, and the cause was even better. They had raised so much money for Ovarian Cancer before I left – and there was still an hour to go then!
I zumba’d for about an hour before I had to go. Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a work out! I wore my Polar F6 HRM
just because I was curious, and let me tell you, zumba burns some serious calories when you get into it! I think it said I had burned about 390 in 45 minutes? I’m not quite sure..but it was up there. They had all of their instructors take turns, too, so it was neat seeing all of their personalities. I really liked the ones who got into the most and looked like they were having a blast. It pumped me up!
Then it was off to BUNCO, where I brought the aforementioned birthday cookies. No, unfortunately I can’t say I made them (I wish I did!!) I bought them from a local bakery that is famous in this town for its sweets – Grove Street Bakery.
Bunco was a ball as usual. The group of girls I play with are simply great. And good news!! I won money!! Ten dollas, baby! I haven’t won yet in 2009, so maybe it’ll be a winning streak 😉 It’s $5 to play, so I won $5 for the most “baby buncos.” If you have never played bunco, you should seriously get a group together to play! Has anyone never heard of it?
And after ALL of that stuff, this post also serves as a Race Eve post. Yep, tomorrow morning I’m running a 5K! And it’s in a city 45 minutes way at 8:00 a.m. I forsee a nap in my future tomorrow. Ok…must go to bed. Good night, all 😀
Do you have a scheduled “girls night” every month/week? What do you get together and do?
