I knew it would happen someday – pretty sure I walked around with a see through dress on! Whooops!! In honor of the 75 degree weather today I wore a really cute wrap dress with three quarter kimono style sleeves. It was a white dress but had a navy/lime pattern all over, so I thought I was safe. I seriously scrutinized myself in the mirror (and dawdled in general) this morning that I left the house 10 minutes late and was certain I was totally show-proof. One glance in the mirror at work proved me wrong though! Chris insists he couldn’t see through it (I asked when I got home) but…I swear I could see straight through it! So embarrassing. Note to self – buy and wear slip!
Flashing back to this morning I had a white mocha courtesy of the Keurig and made 2 quick microwave eggs that I didn’t have time to eat 😦 I wolfed one, but sadly – no picture. I topped my eggs with a teeny bit of feta and salsa. By 9 I was hungry so I knew it was going to be one of “those” days. I dug into some white cheddar Pirate’s Booty to try to calm my gnawing tummy.
I was going to go out to lunch today with 3 co-workers for my birthday but between see-through dress and being uber-busy…it just wasn’t happening. I made an emergency run around 11 to a small grocer downtown for a DIY salad that was highly disappointing. I topped spinach with some diced ham, parmesan cheese, balsamic vineagreatte, carrots, craisins, mushrooms, chick peas, tomatoes and cucumber and it just tasted…off. Booo!!!
Work will be crazy again until about May 10th and I tried my best to keep busy today. I hate when I’m waiting on other people to provide the support I need to do my job. I have to have a draft out tomorrow and actually left at 5 tonight because I didn’t see the point in sitting around waiting for someone who may or may not send me the support tonight. I am usually more productive first thing in the morning anyway – so hopefully I can get it hammered out right away before my 10am meeting 🙂 It’s so hard to get back into the deadline grind after just coming off the year-end filing time line/audits a week ago. At least I have vacation to look forward to 🙂 Sooo excited about that!
Around 4 I snacked on a handful of homemade trail mix – unsalted peanuts/cashews/almonds with raisins, m&ms and mixed chocolate chips – and a handful of grapes:
When I got home tonight Chris had made the sauce and cooked the chicken for dinner, so all I had to do was heat and roll the tortillas and put it all in the oven. We had chicken enchilada casserole which is A+ comfort food in our house. The recipe involves canned soup, Rotel tomatoes, sour cream and a few secret ingredients. Super yummy and quick! On the side we had leftover veggie rice from last night to which I added a can of kidney beans.
And now, it’s time to pick up the kitchen and I keep walking past the bananas in the kitchen thinking “banana split, need banana split.” I just happen to have..um…5 pints of ice cream in the freezer, so I suppose we should get to work on them! What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Right now, I’m addicted to the Ben & Jerry’s peanut butter cup flavor with the Boulder ice cream pumpkin flavor coming in a close second!
And – who’s excited for GLEE to come back on tomorrow night? The DVR will be burning up in our house since it comes on at the same time as Lost!!!
