I woke up pretty groggy this morning, and the blame falls solely on Jersey Shore. Paul had a couple of his friends over to watch the premiere, and since most of my friends were either with their bfs or busy, I went over there too. By the way, I think it’s hilarious that even guys like this show! I made myself a cocktail of cherry vodka and Sprite Zero, and despite fact that I only had one (I was driving), I still woke up super tired this morning. Lesson learned? Drinking on work nights is a no-no. Oh, and Jersey Shore was fabulous. This show is so funny!
The morning at work flew by. I had a couple projects I needed to complete and a ton of emails to respond to, and before I knew it, it was time for lunch. We went out today for what was supposed to be Burgers and Beer.
But I was feeling a little guilty after the drink yesterday, so my meal ended up being quesadillas, waffle fries and water! Unfortunately for me, one of my co-worked knew the manager of the restaurant so they gave us free buffalo fried pickles and breaded baked pickles. I really don’t like pickles at all, but these little guys were addictive. Definitely had a couple more than I should have. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures. I’m really embarrassed to take pics in front of my co-workers!
Anyway, weather here in Chicago is getting kind of ugly. It was flurrying with snow that will stick during the entire drive home from work, making my normal 35/40 minute drive a 50-minute one. Horrible. Some friends were going to go out to the bars tonight, but now that the weather is stinking and because of the fact that most of them don’t even plan to get there until 11 pm, Paul and I are going to pass. I’m hoping for a movie night!
My dinner was a real winner tonight. I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the meals I’ve seen some of my fave bloggers (check out my blog roll on the right sidebar) and a lot of them make these yummy looking salads topped with either salsa, hummus or yogurt. I tried something kind of like that tonight.
I also got 2 miles in on the treadmill right after work. It’s not much, but it’s more than I usually do on a Friday.
Tomorrow’s going to be really busy. Hopefully, I can wake up kind of early to get a workout in before I rush to get my eyebrows done at 11. Then I have to drive 40 minutes to meet Paul’s brother’s fiance to look at bridesmaid dresses. They invited me to be part of the wedding party, and it’s my first time being a bridesmaid!
Have a fun Friday!
Have you ever tried fried pickles? Ever just stumble into a meal you ended up falling in love with? What was your first experience as a bridesmaid like?
