Red Wine & New SneaksPosted: March 6, 2011
I GOT TO SLEEP IN TODAY! 😀 It was glorious, friends.
I have a fun day planned with my BFF Jamie. We haven’t seen each other in three (?!) weeks. It’s disgusting. We’re having lunch today and playing catch up.
Yesterday I had my volunteer training, and Cory was kind enough to plan dinner so I didn’t have to think about it. He’s the best. He even bought a bottle of wine for us to enjoy while we were making dinner. We’re NOT wine-o’s at all. We’ve been together for almost five years and this is the first bottle of wine that we’ve ever purchased (like, not as a gift for someone else). All you wine lovers out there, pick your jaws off the ground 😉
I really enjoy white wine over red. But this was red, and I’m trying to be more “well rounded” so I drank it. I’m trying to acquire the taste 🙂 While I was working on “acquiring,” Cory grilled up some Cajun chicken with a cilantro/yogurt sauce with veggies and a salad on the side. It was great!!
After dinner we went out to Dick’s on the hunt for some new sneaks. I had mentioned my awful shin and ankle pains, and many of you suggested new shoes. I figured that was the problem, so out we went! Let me preface this with the fact that I don’t like spending money on myself. I’m frugal and I’m proud of it 🙂 It takes a lot for me to go out and buy something for myself. I was standing in line at Dick’s with sweaty palms because I knew I was about to drop $120 on a pair of shoes and a sports bra. It’s a problem.
But I love the shoes! They’re so comfy!
I also love how flexible they are!
I wanted to try them out at the gym this morning. I was being a huge diva because it was pouring and I didn’t want to get my new shoes (or myself) wet. But I sucked it up and walked over to the gym, only to find that it was locked! The card access is never activated. Sonofabitch. I walked back to Cory’s apartment and threw in the towel. Sorry guys, I’m only human 🙂 (The shoes felt nice of the walk over, though!)
When I came back I made myself a nice smoothie 🙂 Half a banana, some frozen blueberries, one frozen strawberry, 3/4 cup skim milk, ~1 tbsp cocoa powder and half a scoop of strawberry Whey protein powder.
Now I’ve got to get the ball rolling and shower so I can look presentable for my lunch date 😉 I hope you have a wonderful day!
Let’s chat – What brand are your running shoes? White vs red wine? Do you have a favorite smoothie concoction? I need some new ideas!
