TV Talk, Lighting Plans and Random Harinezumi Pics

EEE! Love that there are others enjoying Drop Dead Diva - it REALLY is cute. I just miss the days of those lighthearted feel good shows. I mean, Grey's, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, etc. all ended in blood baths. What?! No one dies on Drop Dead Diva... well if they do they come back in someone else's body. I mean that's good TV! LOL And YUM - love all of the appetizer talk - you guys' sound great. I heard Hungry Girl is coming out with that new appetizer/cocktail book - i'm definitely going to check it out!

So, like I mentioned in my last post, Monday wasn’t too bad (usually I’m exhausted but I felt okay!). I just worked, walked 4 miles during lunch, worked more and walked 2 miles + abs after work with Stacy. I ended up at 1,520 calories, 181 carbs, 41 fat grams and 96 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Yesterday was pretty much work, 3 miles + upper body ST during lunch with Stacy, work more, then straight home to work with Austin on lighting. I’m having someone come out on Thursday to quote some recessed lighting/pendants/under cabinet lighting in the kitchen/seating area/pool table area. I’m SO excited. We worked on the lighting, took measurements, scoured websites for pendant lighting, did some laundry, ate dinner and called it a night! I ended up at 1,733 calories, 227 carbs, 46 fat grams and 101 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Also, I’d like to share with you some of these random pics. You may remember how I got that little hedgehog video camera?

The Harinezumi, or Hedgehog, video camera

Well not only does it take odd, slowmo, 8mm style videos, it also takes randomly bizarre pictures through that plastic rectangular “viewfinder.” Here are some pics taken in the last couple of months!!

Have any of you ever dealt with a lighting contractor? I'm a bit nervous about not putting lights in the right places. Then again, I told Austin it truly couldn't be worse than it is now. It's SO dark.

Low res/funky/blurry photos: yay or nay? I like but not all the time - I love some high def "perfect" photos!

Lighting contractor? Okay fancy pants...

Also, can we pause for a minute and talk about Gossip Girl? Do you really think Chuck will die? I mean, you can't just write off Chuck Bass, can you?!

Love your lunch hour walks, what a great way to get exercise in! I'd love some new lighting for our condo but I am too poor at the moment. Hope your appt goes well!

Some of the pics that camera took are very cool. The black and white one of you is great--looks sort of "old-timey"

Is it bad that I can't remember what bloodshed you're referring to in GG. I don't even remember the finale. Man...

Good luck with the lighting contractor!

That camera is so bizarre looking! But I think the weird pictures are sort of cool. I'd kind of rather have deliberately weird than trying-to-be-good-but-instead-weird pictures like I so often produce!

Under cabinet lighting is so pretty! We got a few installed when we built our house and I love them. I haven't really delt with the contractor though (our builder did all that). Best of luck! take before and afters for us for sure! Glad your week is going well so far ;)

Can't help you with the lighting contractor.

The camera took some cool pics.

Nope, no lighting contractor help here!

That's such a neat little camera!! I think blurry pictures can be cute and artsy in some situations, but I definitely prefer crisp photos as well!

I like that black and white of you. Like someone else said in a comment: it looks old-timey! :)

I have never worked with a lighting contractor but I wish I had. I have made some bad choices in the past.

My sister used one when she had her house built and now she has awesome lighting in places I never would have dreamed of -- like little reading spotlights over her bed with switches down low where she can reach them without getting out of bed. And they only shine on one side of her bed so if her hubby is sleeping, he does not have light shining on him and vice versa.

I think it would be worth it. Good luck!
