Day 345: Party Like a Rockstar, Great Workout Sesh, Ludacris, Feeding Friends, My Office

So Friday played out exactly as I hoped and planned it would – woo! I worked then we took off to the gym (me, Stacy, Sue and a new recruit –Katie!). Me and Stacy did a brisk 4.1 mph walk at a 4 incline, then we headed over to the workout area (with a fan!) to do the following ab and leg workouts.




OMG – I thought we were going to die. But we didn’t – we wrapped it up then walked another ½ mile. We ended up burning 356 calories in 56 minutes – heart it! Then we were hungry – so we went back to work, worked and then rolled out at 5 p.m. – time to get the night going! I raced home, showered and we were out the door with dinner in tow! I made the turkey enchilada casserole (but with beef!) again (and black beans instead) for dinner, Mon had the oven preheated, it was all good in the hood. We got to her and Andy’s place, put on make-up, caught up and ate dinner. They had the nicest things to say about the casserole! They loved it – woo! I love feeding friends! Is there a dish you love cooking for other people?

After dinner we headed to the bar (BTW – drove about 3 miles down Peachtree next to Ludacris in his Bentley!!!). He’s the only celebrity I consistently see in Atlanta (by consistently I mean I’ve seen him one other time – when he was in his convertible Bentley and almost ran me over when I was jay walking to Tin Lizzy’s.) Anywho – he’s a super respectful driver – here’s an iPhone pic.




We got settled in and pretty soon the 4 of us were drinking it up with Stacy, Shane, Lincoln, Shana, Scott, Mary, Jay, Ruje, Kevin, Tyson, John, Jeremy, Jody, Andrew, Laura Anne, Lauren, Hilary, Randy and Nicole – great group! We started at Stout and the girls sat and chatted while the boys played flip cup (yes, the bar has flipcup/beer pong tables) – then we headed to East Andrews Upstairs for Wrong Way (sublime cover band) and a Chili Peppers cover band. Good times my friends! We danced, drank, and had an absolute blast until 2ish, where we then took a cab to a Mediterranean restaurant and everyone had gyros (I just had some hummus/pita and counted it as breakfast for the next day!) then we got home at 4ish. O.M.G.

Wonderful night! I ended up at 2,469 calories, 221 carbs, 48 fat grams and 92 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. And here’s some pics – more to come as I monopolized Shana’s camera and took 18,000 candids that I’ll likely get from her next weekend! Um… just realized my camera cord is at work. Therefore, my canon is holding Friday's shenanigans captive so now you get a look at my girly scrapbook reading room that houses my walk in accessories closet office! Please note: it’s not done. I haven’t hung all of my art, gotten a pillow for the chair or put in my flat screen (same one as kitchen one with DVD player). But it’s pretty close! I'll post Saturday and today's stuff tomorrow morning!! Hope you're all having glorious Sundays!


I love it!!!





So does Reuben...

OMG. You make me feel so OLD. I am old! haha! We used to live in Buckhead back in 1996 right after the Summer Olympics. I saw Evander Holyfield in traffic and Andie Macdowell at the airport. Anyhoo - love your blog! Keep up the great work!
