We won the civil war so we don't have to care

So I have a confession.

I know it's not Friday, but I have to share because I can't hold my excitement in any longer!!!

I requested a day off.

I don't ever request time off - I also don't even have any vacation/sick time at work so I won't be getting paid for my day off.  Luckily I got an extra paycheck in the month of April so it shouldn't hurt me.

So what day did I request off?

Next Friday.


So I can watch the Royal Wedding OBVIOUSLY!!!!!

I'm also hosting a royal tea party themed Arbonne party that evening with my BFF Alison.

I'm planning on taking the foam mattress off my bed and putting it in my living room Thursday night, so I can wake up at 3:00 to watch the festivities and roll around on my living room floor in sheer joy.






You've been warned.

In other news, today it rained for like the third day in a row.  Whateves.  It stopped long enough for me to get a good 10 mile bike ride in.  I dare say the sun even came out a bit.

There were all kinds of critters on the trail today.  I saw a swimming beaver/weasel thing.  Do weasels swim?  I wish I could've gotten a picture of it, he was super sweet but he blended in with the water really well and it was kind of cloudy so I don't think I would've gotten a good pic.  I also saw two giant geese like birds in the swampy area with HUGE feet, a gorgeous cardinal and a ton of robins. 

I did get one picture:

This Mr. was kind enough to stop and pose for a picture, although he still looks super far away.  I think he was less than impressed with me as right after I snapped the picture he jumped in the water...

So I didn't get pictures of 2 of my 3 meals again today.  This has to do with me making my lunch in the morning while getting breakfast ready and I'm really rushed.  That whole waking up an hour earlier thing?  Yea that stopped like two weeks ago...shame really, I should revisit that idea.

But meals:

Bagel Thin w/CC 140
Applesauce 45

Salad Mix w/dressing 75
Egg 75
Cheese Ravioli 180


Meatless/Soyless chicken nuggets 225
Broccoli and rice with cheese sauce 150

For a snack after I had:

Ok....maybe I had two packages :P

Not bad today food wise - definitely better than what it's been!

I must not be girly enough. I'm not interested at all on this wedding.

And what does the Civil war have to do with a British Wedding? I'm confused. LOL!

And good for you on eating better! Posting pictures only makes me hungry for what you are eating. lol!

Okay-so I am not as excited as you are-but most definitley intrigued and my DVR is set.

Your ride sounds fun-maybe you saw a muskrat?

Brandy@YDK said...

that's so funny that you are going to wake up at 3am to watch the royal wedding. that's dedication.

i think it's cool that you post about your food - maybe if I did that I would eat better. lol.

That one girl said...
