Snowed IN!

So after my post yesterday I headed out to try some shopping, I made it out to two stores and the got to the third and it was closed! Wahhh…the snow really didn’t come and hit us until after 11pm yesterday because when we woke up this is what it looked liked…please enjoy these snowy pictures!

These are all taken out of our hotel window, we haven’t gone out yet because we still have a blizzard warning until 7pm and nothing is open! We aren’t even sure what we are going to do for lunch! Ahhh!

Anyways, after shopping yesterday I met Chris for lunch at Amatos, my favorite sub restaurant! I got a small original italian.

We hung around the room until about 5pm yesterday and then headed out to a local Mexican restaurant…it was okay but I like the ones in our town better… it was lacking flavor for sure! After dinner we went to the grocery store because obviously if a blizzard is coming you need to have ice cream on hand! We bought Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake! It definintely made up for the fact that dinner was sub par! Also, we got two cookies at the front lobby! And hot chocolate because the hotel has a hot bar all the time!

This morning we woke up to 2 feet of snow and still snowing! We hit up the hotels breakfast buffet and have literally just been staying warm in our room until we decide to venture out! What I think is awesome is that the hotel gave all of their staff member and families rooms for the night so that the staff could actually be here for work today!
Here is breakfast from today, french toast sticks, bagel sandwich, fruit salad, maple sausage! Yum!

Did you get snow today?
Hows the weather where you are?

Best place to do vacation research?! And my workout!

So like I said yesterday I am heading to Bangor, ME on Friday for a mini vacation and last night I was trying to do a little research and figure out what to do up there for three days. Chris and I have already planned our restaurants out but what to do in between eating is the question! I started using tripadvisor.com which is also an app as well as a web page. I really like it because you can enter the city and state and them once you do that it breaks it up into categories.

What to eat, what to see and where to stay! You can click on the recommendations and see actual reviews which I especially liked! Although there is not a lot to do up in Bangor in the winter except for freeze your butt off, I think we will figure something out! If anything well just camp out in the hot tub at the hotel for three days!

This morning I had to wake up to help a friend out by watching her son until his daddy gets out of work at 8:30 AM! Followed by an awesome workout! My resistance to running is definitely getting a lot better. I’m not fatigued after five minutes which is awesome and it really lets me know that this program is working!

Also, my friends (the ones I babysat this morning for) just got a Great Dane puppy named talula and she is adorable but huge! She’s only three months old!

Off to work I go! Only until 5! Great short day! 🙂

Short night, long days!

Howdy!
I’ve been very scarce lately on posting my meals and workout but I promise I’m still eating good and working out, it seems like my nights have gotten short and my work days are getting longer! But at least I have a job! This weekend though, I will be traveling up to Maine (4 hours away) and visiting Chris who is staying up there for business! I’m really excited because there are some awesome restaurants that I have been drying to try since he’s been up there! It’s like a little mini vacation for me! His hotel even has a alt water pool, how cool is that?!
Since Chris has been away, meals have not been terribly exciting because I don’t have to cook for anyone but myself so I typically get home late from work and make something really quick and then go to sleep…
I have been spending a lot of time on the site Little Black Bag because it’s awesome and you get to trade items in your little black bag until you’re happy with you little black bag and then they ship it to you…I still have five days of trading but I love all of the items in my bag :). Take a look at what’s in my little black bag here!
I have also been spending a lot of my time on the website called Posh Mark. It’s actually an apple app and you can buy and sell designer clothing on it which is great because there are so many things I need to get rid of and I don’t have a consignment shop near by! You can check out what I’m selling by clicking here!

As far as working out is going I sort of feel like I’m in a slump…I have been following the couch to 5k app and it is only three days a week for running and I sort of feel like I need to do more cardio than just that if I want to loose more weight! I have been losing about a pound every week or so but I just need a little more! I wish I was a member of a gym so I could take some fun classes that I’m always reading about!

Well….it’s off to bed for me! I have to go watch the cutest little man ever tomorrow morning at 6AM!

How is your week going…even though it is only Monday?!
