who’s ready for monday?!?
i’m working on it.
it’s just that i had a fabulous weekend and i hate to see it end!
saturday i enjoyed some productive relaxation.
we watched the badgers win the inaugural big 10 championship game! now they’ll be playing in the rosebowl – i can’t wait! i could use a vacation to pasadena… (i wish!)
yesterday, i got to enjoy a delicious sunday morning breakfast.
i never have eggs during the week. this was a two egg omelette with a splash of skim milk, salt and pepper, green pepper, red onion, and black olives topped with some shredded cheese and salsa (homemade by my momma!). it hit the spot and fueled me for the rest of the day!
after breakfast and some work for me, brad and i finished almost all of our christmas shopping. we didn’t have many people to shop for this year – pretty much just our parents – but it feels good to get it done. plus, now we have presents under the tree!
while shopping, i stumbled upon something that i am way too excited about to be considered normal, but i have to share it anyway.
grid paper with adhesive on the back! i’m already in love and made my list for today on it…
so neat and organized. i can’t even handle it. i like to make a little to-do list for each day where i include even little things like roasting squash (i only got one of my 3 done yesterday!) and updating our budget so i don’t forget! plus i love checking things off. it keeps me organized and motivated.
after shopping we watched the packers continue their winning streak and move to 12-0 on the season – hooray!
and that was my weekend.
short & sweet!
this week is going to be a busy one. i have lots to do in the lab – i have to present at our lab meeting next week and i’m still waiting to get some of my data analyzed, so it’s going to be a mad dash to analyze and interpret it all in time for the meeting. i think i’m up for the task, though!
i’ve also got some exciting things in the works for the near future. i don’t mean to be a tease, but i am so excited to tell you all, but i’m going to have to wait a bit longer….ahh.
and finally, st. nick comes tonight!! this is the first year that i have to play st. nick and i am of course, excited! i have things to fill my and brad’s stockings and capone’s & jake’s.
