Black Keys/KOL Concert, Tailgate Ready, 10K Training, New Dress

Thank you for all of your sweet comments and support! I've really enjoyed blogging, and just can't say enough positive things about it, really! Also, after reading your comments i'm even more excited to be an aunt and spoil baby P! I just think it's going to be so funny - the first grandbaby in my family!!

Let me back up a bit: Wednesday was just work, ran 3 miles during lunch at 6.3 mph/walked 1/4 mile (showered), and then after work I headed straight over to Stacy's for the Kings of Leon/Black Keys concert! (Reuben was already over there - Austin dropped him off that afternoon when he headed to the airport to an overnight work trip in Fort Lauderdale!). I rode with her and her husband, Shane, and met up with their friends for some pre-concert tailgating. We parked next to this billboard....
Good times in the concert
Me and Stacy!
Me, Stacy & our Lo
The girls - Stacy, Mandy, me, Danielle and Lindsey
Shane and Jason double-fisting

The concert was fun - saw some of our co-workers, and a friend I hadn't seen since high school. I missed Austin of course but had fun chilling with the girls and taking pictures. We got home around midnight after a late Taco Bell stop - those tacos were SO good (I counted them as breakfast the next day!) haha I ended up at 2,220 calories, 195 carbs, 51 fat grams and 122 protein grams. Here's what I ate.

Thursday me and Reuben woke up at 7, headed out, got some gas, then got to my house to start working! I was tired, so I took my lunch break to nap. Then after work I got tailgate ready: made a marinade, made a pasta salad, made a dressing, made magical margarita, made guacamole and packed up all of the travel plates, cups, skewers, shot glasses, liquors, mixers and more - woo!! Then it was off to the mail for a dress - apparently we're doing all blue this weekend so it required a new one! I hit up Macy's and got two - I plan to wear this great Michael Kors one Saturday!

I got this in Navy!
Here's the navy (for some reason this color wouldn't do a non-close up shot!) haha

It was originally $100, on sale for $56 with a percentage off so it rang up at $30 and when I used my Macy's card I got $4 off so $26. After the mall, I got the eyebrows waxed then went home, ate green chicken enchiladas and passed out. Great day! I ended up at 1,840 calories, 191 carbs, 80 fat grams and 96 protein grams. Here's what I ate.

Q: Do you stay with friends when your roommate/significant other is out of town? I'm a big baby. I much prefer to have someone come stay or to stay at someone's until Austin is back!

Q: Do you like Michael Kors? I'm a fan - his designs are usually classic and well-made and I like him on Project Runway. I only have a few of his pieces and this dress is def my favorite so far!

Q: Do you eat more/make poorer choices when you're tired? I do... :(

What an awesome concert -- jealous!

Tom and I definitely enjoy having our own space for the first day or two when the other is gone. Then after that we just really want to not be by ourselves. Sometimes he only sleeps on the couch -- poor thing.

When he's gone in October I have serious plans I'm lining up to keep myself busy for the couple of days he'll be in Boston.

You ready for some football tomorrow?! :)

Glad you had fun at the concert- cute pictures of you and the ladies ;) Love love love the dress! I love that you could either dress it up a bit or keep it more casual. Heard you might meet up with Christina this week- awesome! Have fun <3

Q: Do you stay with friends when your roommate/significant other is out of town? You're too funny. Nope I stay home with the Frankers. In fact, Josh has been gone all week (finally coming back today!)

Q: Do you like Michael Kors? Yes- simple & beautiful

Q: Do you eat more/make poorer choices when you're tired? Sometimes....usually crave sugar!

Christina said...

YES! hope we get to meet up!!! i'm so excited. we're leaving in an hour! :) :)

Q1: Don't have a significant other and i don't mind sleeping alone!

Q2: Ummm yes and no. I love love love my watch but the quality of his stuff is NOT the best.

Q3: I eat more carbs when I'm tired, duh.

I LOVE the Black Keys- no one even knows who they are when I mention them. :-/

I live by myself and have always so I'm used to it. I hated having roommates. lol. But this is probably because they were bitches.

Girl- YES. When I'm tired the last thing I want to do cook or make anything healthy. Plus, I convince myself that the reason I'm tired is because I need sugar, so I'll eat some cookies. Hehe!!

I'm so glad to see your comments on my blogs today! I missed having "personal" conversations if you will. :-)

Have a nice weekend.

Sounds like you had a fun time at the concert with the girls. I really love your new dress! I eat terribly when I am tired.

KOL?!?! So lucky! I'm so glad you posted pictures and it looks like you had a great time.

I think that is so cute that you like to be with friends or vice versa when he's out of town. :) I'm really bad with designers so I don't know enough of his collection but I do LOVE that dress, especially in navy. Such a good color and the dress looks like it's going to be fab on you. And when I'm tired I try to just sleep (or make tea) but if I need to eat, yes the choices dwindle down to whatever is closest/easiest!

I love KOL! Looks like a lot of fun!

While Ryan is gone, I'm moving back home. Screw sleeping alone for a year. I lasted 2 months last time and peaced out of NY. So I don't blame you!

I love Michael Kors! His clothes are great and he's super sassy!

I make poor choices when I'm feeling emotional. I will be working on that while Ryan is gone. Counting down to him leaving is the worst part of deployment.

Glad you had fun at the concert!! :)

I don't mind staying by myself at night when Andrew's gone, but during the day I try to get together with family and friends as much as possible to keep myself busy.

Happy Friday Auntie Kelly!! :)

Fun concert! It looks like you ladies had a blast--I adore outdoor concert. As for eating while tired, YES. That's why I sleep so much..haha. Have a fantastic weekend!!

What are magical margaritas??

I like Michael Kors. I friend of mine's sister does some sort of PR for him and can get my friend some ridiculous discount which she has said she can give me if we go shopping together at the MK store.

Andrea@WellnessNotes said...

I LOVE the dress! And what a great deal you got! I really like Michael Kors. I fell in love with one of his coats last year, but never got it as I never found it on sale, and it was just a bit too pricey...

Have a great weekend!

Angela said...

I'm really liking Michael Kors lately too!!!!

Taco Bell is a huge weakness for me. I usually only eat there late at night when I've had too much to drink. You'd think I hadn't eaten in weeks.....I order too much and mmm and ahhh through the whole thing.

I don't mind being alone when Chris is away bc I have my dog. I sometimes eat poorly if I'm tired too. Love the dress, super cute.

I've been reading your blog for a while now and i've got to say i'm so impressed by your ability to manage your career, your family and social life. You are truly amazing.
I have some requests:
- Your hair is amazing. Could you please do a post on your haircare and any tips for growing thick healthy hair.
- I am amazed by your pre planning skills for cooking..u are so methodical and organized. The first thought that came to my mind was..." I wonder how her closet looks". We would love to get a peek into your closet. Nice house and decor btw and good choice on the car. :)
I love reading your blog...keep up the good spirit.
