Well today was kind of a crazy day!! I started it off by waking up late... CRAP!! I didn't have time to pack my lunch so I ended up going to the Cashwise Deli...which was actually super delicius!!! Soup barely EVER sounds good to me but it was a rainy cold day today and strangly, it sounded so good!!! So I got some chicken noodle soup & a turkey crescent! YUM! 

After work I had to swing by JoAnn Fabrics to pick up some more fabric for my halloween costume!! Its going to be sooo awesome!!! NO WORRIES.. I'll post some pics after the party on Saturday. fyi... I'm going to be Wonder Woman!

As soon I got home I made sure to take some Cod out of the freezer for dinner and then I was craving a run!! I haven't ran in like 5 months! So... I laced up my running shoes and hit the road!!! Josie was SOOO excited. And it felt great!! It was nice and cool and kind of raining. PERFECT!! I enjoyed every minute of it. I only went about a mile and a half because I didn't have much time. But it felt amazing. I might just have to do it again tomorrow.

So after my quick run I had to take a quick shower & get ready for my niece's basketball game!! GO VIKINGS! She did so great. I was a proud auntie! :)

Soon as I got home DWTS was on tv so I had to pause it while I made my dinner and then hit play and I LOOOOVVVEEE Shawn Johnson. She is so amazing. All the dancers are great but she is my fav! Now I'm thinkin that it would be a good idea to get to bed early tonight so I can make it to work on time and get a good 7 hours...unlike the usual 5. --Maybe thats why I've hit a weightloss plateau. :/ hmmm...

Anyhow.... It's time for this girl to get ready to hit the hay! Peace out Brussel Sprout!!

Oh yea.... I also thought that I'd share a good recipe with you that I've made a couple times because its so good! so.... (drumrole please...)...........
