hey guys! how’s your monday? i don’t know what’s up with me – but i am in a great mood, especially for a monday!
i bet it’s because i’m so excited for my sister to arrive on wednesday! i’m not sure if i told you all the situation with her visit, but here it is. liz got a job in madison for the summer, but she’s planning on staying for good. her boyfriend, keith, is also planning to move here, but he doesn’t have a job lined up yet. they’re both getting here wednesday (driving from northern cali) and staying with us. keith will be here for a week and a half and will be super busy with job interviews and doing more job hunting. liz is staying with us until keith gets a job and moves here, when they’ll get an apartment together!
they’ve been on the road for over 10 hours now, and my sister just called me telling me to listen to a bunch of songs that we sang in chorus in middle & high school! now i’m singing a bunch of songs to brad while he
tries to ignore me watches the brewers.
a couple of my favorites:
ahhhh, the memories! 🙂
ok, on to the food! sadly, i didn’t take many pictures today, but i did capture our dinner.
we had steamfresh veggies on the side of a bomb pasta dish! i saw this recipe for p.s. i love you pasta sauce on the scene from me blog a couple days ago, and knew i had to make it (honestly, i just love that movie and thought it was too cute that she named the sauce that!).
i really really liked this sauce! brad thought it tasted “healthy, but good”. i just thought it was delicious. we’ll be making it again! 🙂
and now, it’s been a while since i did some monday mini goals, but i think it would be good for me to get back into it! so, here we go!
♥ do all insanity workouts this week. brad and i have been doing insanity pretty consistantly, but i think we’ve skipped at least one workout each week. no skipping this week! today, it’s so far, so good! we finished our workout before dinner!
♥ stay focused at work. my productivity in lab has been way down lately. i need to work on focusing on work stuff (not wedding planning!) when i’m in lab.
♥ no snoozing my alarm clock. i’ve been snoozing a bit too much lately. i’m going to try to nip that right now and cut out any snoozes this week.
♥ relax and enjoy my bridal shower this weekend. i’m so excited for my first bridal shower this weekend (given by brad’s mom & sister), but i tend to get nervous in social situations where i don’t know many people well. i know brad’s mom and sister of course, and i’ve met some of his mom’s friends, but i don’t know them well. i hope i can just enjoy it and not be awkward!
ok, i think that’s enough. wish me well this week!
were you in chorus in middle or high school?
i was in chorus from 7th grad until i graduated and i was also in a couple extracurricular choirs. i even had several solos! 🙂 sadly, i’ve lost some of my skills. just ask brad!! 😉
