C25K, New Dress, Giveaway Arrival, Fun with Work Friends

Thanks you guys!! You’re SO sweet – I’m super excited for Austin and don’t even know if it’s hit me yet – just so very cool when good things happen! (I know, understatement – but ya know what I mean). Also great to read what some of your sig others are up to – impressive!! And I’m SUPER pleased to see that I have so many fellow library goers. I have to admit I was SO secretly pleased that Carrie Bradshaw is also a patron, a little known fun fact that was never apparent to me until the movie. This gave me pride – LOVE her (other little known fun fact – mine and Austin’s first pet together was a fabulous hammy named SJ).

On to life! Thursday in a nutshell:

  • Had some car trouble, got it fixed, for $14.50 – ROCKIN’

  • Worked from home – got lots done.

  • Went to the gym for 5 miles. Walked 3, hit up C25K and ran 22 (total 25, 160 calories, 2.5 miles) and then walked until 5 miles burning a total of 362 calories.

  • Drove Austin to Buckhead to have some celebratory drinks with his co-workers in Atlanta and NY. Swung over to Lenox to get a dress at Urban Outfitters, 2 Lacostes for Austin and a gift for baby Emma. Hit up Target for some randoms and Kroger for some forgottens. Then met Austin & the group at Kramer’s, which turned into 5 Paces, which turned into a late but fun night. Had a great time with his co-workers, some of which I’d never met (the NY crowd!). We danced, chilled and had a blasty!

  • I ended up at 1,752 calories, 204 carbs, 27 fat grams and 87 protein grams. Here’s what I ate!





new dress! Half off at UO.


On to Friday, in a nutshell:

  • Worked. Hard. Had so much to do and even worked through lunch (i.e. no workout. Sad).

  • After work had a happy hour at my co-worker Emily’s – LOVE her house – I hadn’t seen it yet. She’s done a phenomenal job and her and her husband are so dang happy – awesome! Me, Em, Amanda, Kim and Clair had a few drinkies and lovely apps on Em’s huge covered deck under her fans – I’m so jealous of her fabulous outdoor setup!

  • Home to Austin, and GOT A SURPRISE – my vitatops had arrived from the wonderful giveaway – YAY!!! Thanks again, Genesis!!! You’re the bomb!

  • Wrapped a gift, packed up and got in bed – WOO!

  • Ended up at 1,849 calories, 178 carbs, 57 fat grams and 75 protein grams. Here's what I ate.

YAY! Austin had already frozen it for me!


If you have co-workers, do you love them? Me and Austin have always thought we got SO lucky on the co-worker front! Like, when you’ve been in your co-workers weddings and they’ve been in yours…. You’re tight!

What are you doing tomorrow – anything fun? I’m heading to Bham for baby Emma’s baptism and what I’m sure will be a super good time with great friends – yay!

I love my job but most of my coworkers are ladies and when you get that many women together there is drama sometimes. I just steer clear! Hope you have a great weekend!

Gabriela said...

What a cute dress from Urban...score on getting it on sale, that's always the best feeling!! Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Carrie said...

I bet that dress will be really cute on you! I got my Vitatop giveaway package yesterday too. I was like a kid in a candy store. :D

Ooh vitatiops. I love those.

I like most of my co-workers. I'm only friends with a few outside of work, but most of them are pleasant enough during the work day.

Glad your car got fixed so quickly and cheaply! Car issues always make me soooo nervous.

I love my coworkers for the most part. There's a really amazing group of people that I would do anything for. My hubs also lucked out with amazing people. He's super sad to leave just because of the people. I think I would be MISERABLE if I didn't like the folks I worked with.

Love the UO dress!!! I've always wanted to try Vita Tops, they look so delicious!

Melissa said...

Yeah for the free Vitatops!!! Back in the day when I worked, I had pretty cool co-workers....you're right....it's key!

Mica said...

That's really exciting for Austin, and it means changes for BOTH of you.

I've never had a Vitatop before. I think I like muffins too much to just eat the tops.
