Done with Day One

*I probably won’t be able to check out blogs for a bit! I apologize in advance!! The tournament is throwing my life out of whack.*

Today was hectic, but there weren’t any problems at the tournament. The referees showed up, we had enough kids to do the clock/book, there weren’t any registration issues and Paul’s team won! The only bad thing is that I’m probably only going to get 6 hours of sleep tonight, and then after work tomorrow, I get to start the whole thing over again. But it’s all for a good cause, so I’m going to keep this smile plastered on my face.

Yes, I am a dork.

Lunch was filled with lots and lots of vegetables. Since my workouts are going to be shorter and less intense through Sunday, I figure I might as well increase my veggie intake as much as I can.

Honey vinaigrette...you are my savior!

I had been getting so sick of salads, but this honey vinaigrette has really changed my tune. The sweetness is right on target with what this salad needs. Spinach, baby cucumber, yellow peppers, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes and feta are yummy, but this dressing rocks my socks. Yep, I really just used that expression! πŸ™‚

I didn’t want to leave a tiny bit of my cucumber in the fridge, so I sliced up the rest of it, along with the rest of my yellow bell pepper and brought it as a side. Dipping the vegetables in Laughing Cow Cheese made both veggies a lot tastier, especially that boring cucumber.

Can't go wrong with an apple.

Even though I still love my fruit salad bowls, one little apple seems to fill me up so much more. I can’t turn all that fiber down, so I think I’m going to try to get an apple in every couple days.

Day 9 – A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most

This is a pretty terrible picture, but most of the pictures I have with myself and one of my best friends (I’ll call her A.) are not online. I don’t have a scanner, so this will have to do.

I’ve been best friends with her since 6th grade, and I know I’ll always be able to trust her. She’s been there for me when I’ve had friend issues, boy issues and just plain old issues. We can talk about everything and nothing, watch Jersey Shore or Buffy, hang out in my basement, go out for drinks, have sleepovers, not see each other for months…and still, she’ll always be one of my best friends. πŸ™‚

Do you have one best friend or a couple? I have a couple! Any special plans this weekend? I’ll be at the tournament all day, all night on Saturday and Sunday! What fruit are you currently feeling the most? For me, it’s apples!

    I have three bests, and they are my life! Been together since we were freshman in hs, almost 13 years. I love that we’ve known each other so long and have so much history. We’ve literally been through EVERYTHING imaginable; they’re my family, not just my friends.

    I’m glad the tournament is running smoothly!
    I have one best friend, more than one if you include my mom πŸ™‚ I used to have a lot, but we grew apart. We’re still friends, I just don’t feel as close anymore. My mom is definitely my best friend, and even though we still argue sometimes I feel more comfortable with her than anyone and I always turn to her for advice.

  19. mmm – i love mixed veg! I know it probably sounds cheesy but my sister is my best friend! I have really good friends (some that I’ve been friends with for 2 decades!!!), but I move a lot & it’s hard to keep in touch with people regularly and the only person I can turn to NO MATTER WHAT and I can say WHATEVER without being judges is my sis. Love my seester ❀

  20. I’m currently loving clementines. But that isn’t anything new! In the winter I live for clementines, and in the summer I live for watermelon. While I love ALL fruit, those are my two favourites.

  21. I’m craving watermelon – it better get in season QUICK! hehe! apples in my smoothies is a must too!

    i also have a few BFF’s — they’re all super different! ❀

  22. I have a couple of bffs! My two best friends from back home are sisters, so that makes it easy. And then here in VA I have my girl best friend and my boy best friend πŸ™‚

  23. Have fun at the tournament! I have a couple of best friends and I feel really lucky to have them.

  24. i freaking love the french onion laughing cow cheese! i use it on burgers, dip some pretzel thins in it… you name it i love it!! hope you have a great weekend girl!

  25. I’ve got 2 besties – one since I was four years old. She lived two houses down from me, and one who was randomly chosen as my college roommate freshman year. We got along so well we roomed together all 4 years!
