We’re happy, free, confused, & lonely at the same time.

I have come to a conclusion. I am obsessed with my friends. I haven’t really had the opportunity to see a lot of people lately, but it was so nice yesterday to have the day off and catch up with some of my lovely friends.


That morning I went to yoga with Erica. I’ll be honest, any time we were laying on the floor I just about fell asleep. I haven’t really been able to sleep lately and have just been exhausted 24/7. I really wish I could have used that hour as naptime, but that would not have been very polite unfortunately. It was an awesome class though!

Then we went to her house to make some protein pancakes, which were actually more like cookies, but I was not mad. We used the Tone It Up “perfect fit protein” and added oats into the batter, which literally made it like cookie dough. I wish I was typing this on my iPhone and could put a thumbs up there. The only thing that would have been better is if we had mimosas. Darn.


After that I went to Whole Foods to meet Sarah for lunch. We got the salad bar and I think I got sweet potato quinoa, cucumber/tomato/onion salad, lemon marinated kale/pepper salad, and a bunch of raw veggies. I got a strawberry serenity kombucha, too. Then we wandered around forever just talking and looking at all the things we can’t afford.

I guess that wasn’t enough venting, because we then proceeded to power walk around the outdoor mall for a half hour and complain some more about life. Good thing we have each other to get all the crap out to, because otherwise I feel like nobody would like me in life because I would be telling complete strangers all my problems.


Next I went downtown with Caterina for a business meeting/vent session round two. We started off at an organic coffee/tea shop where I got the cutest little pot of green tea with ginger and mint in the whole wide world. I almost stole it. We also saw a little car accident out the window, which broke my heart for those people, because now their day is ruined. I wanted to run out and give them both a hug, but I didn’t because that would be creepy.


Because drinks certainly weren’t enough, we walked over to a little self-serve frozen yogurt place. I got key lime yogurt with a ton of random fruit. So freaking good. Made me want to go to Florida and get some pie. And then out THAT window, we saw a couple getting engagement pictures taken! Best people watching day ever.


Then I had a nice little 40 minute drive by myself to ANOTHER nearby town to get dinner/drinks with one of my best friends from college, Alicia, that I used to work with. Our waitress was the cutest and let me try a bunch of the beers first, because I am just about the most indecisive person in the world and cannot commit to anything for more than 5 minutes. I ended up getting this spicy, wheat-ish beer I think. Not sure at all, but it was yummy. And we got pizza and fries and apple pie. I swear I work in health and fitness.


I had an absolute blast today. I was reminded how much I love seeing my girlfriends and how I need to get out more. But now back to reality today when I nanny 8-5 and train right after. At least I love what I do!


If you had one day off and could do anything in the whole world, what would you do?

Hockey Games & Miley Cyrus

Random? I know. Oh well.


I have always had this weird obsession with Miley Cyrus. I just think she is the cutest little thing. I also think it’s crazy how she has had so many different looks over the years, yet remains adorable no matter what. I swear, if I meet her in LA, I might just become her best friend and never come back to Michigan. That would be totally fine with me.


I decided that when I’m in LA I’m going to the Mari Winsor Pilates studio that she is known for going to. Not only do I love Pilates, but I have the added bonus of possibly meeting Miley which would just blow my mind.


I don’t know how, but somehow I’ve gotten Luke to rent So Undercover with me. It’s this Miley movie that was filmed right after she did Hannah Montana and totally flopped. It was just released recently, and I’ve wanted to see it for a while even though I know how stupid it is. It’s also about sororities, and I was in one, so I can totally relate to the ridiculousness of that, too.


On to a new topic………


Luke took me to a Red Wings hockey game this afternoon, and we had the BEST time. I may or may not have had beer and grapes for lunch and a veggie burger, fries, and more beer for dinner, but that’s okay.

Just wanted to check in; we’re off to finish this silly movie. I’ll be back tomorrow with a vlog Smile
