To say it’s been “one of those weeks” would be a serious understatement. Nearly EVERY HOUR of my ten-hour shifts for the last four days has been CRAY-ZEEEEEE! Luckily, it’s all behind me now and I’ve already got the weekend off to a good start. Since technically my Friday is Thursday and that’s when I’m typing up this post (did you follow that?)…
I made sure to CELEBRATE!
After a WEEK of pissing myself off with my incessant shivering, I caved and turned on the mother-frickin heat! I may be a bit bitter, but at least I’m warm now! 😉
I gave myself permission to sleep WITHOUT setting my alarm and didn’t wake up until 4pm…after going to sleep at 8am.
And instead of feeling guilty for not setting
foot my fine ass in the gym all week, I laced up my sneakers, picked up my camera, annnnnd…headed to the park!
Confession: When I saw this leaf, I actually said, “ohhhhh preeeeeetty”! 😉
I stayed out until my hands were so cold it was hard to press the shutter release, came home, made a cup of tea the size of my FACE, whipped up some Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oat Bran, slapped that shit in a near-empty jar of crack (both sad and happy times), curled up on the couch, typed this post, and hit publish all before 9pm…bedtime!
Yes, that means I was only awake for five hours.
But I don’t know you guys…I feel like I might be coming down with something…I mean, do I look a little pale to you?
I think I may need to go to the doctor. My left eye is sort of getting fuzzy and…
I keep getting this weird taste in my mouth…
Not as good as last year, but damn you Pic Monkey for charging for all the good stuff now…boo hiss…or should I say “gaaarrrrghhhh”?
Any big plans for the weekend?
If I’m feeling any better 😉 , I plan on meeting my two besties for dinner and drinks tonight!
Are you dressing up for Halloween? What are you going as?
I’m on call so just wish me luck I’m not zombie-ing it up at the hospital that night!
haha i love you! enjoy your dinner with friends and yay for sleeeeeeeep!
I love you long lost twin!!! It’s on my to-do list to check out (and most likely make) both your hummus cookies and peanut butter tofu. YOU SPEAK TO ME. Please teach me your picmonkey ways. I have zero skills no matter how hard I try!
I’m going to the Delicious Food Show this weekend and I wish you were in Toronto because you would be the best wing girl for this! Martha is going to be there and I plan to give her a piece of my mind regarding her thoughts on food bloggers…Hopefully I don’t get taken out by security. I’ll keep you posted!
Aww, I think I’m gonna start calling you my pickle! 😉 And I’m so jealous of the food show…I want those BALLS!! But whoa…hold up! What did that ex-felon say about food bloggers?!
I freakin’ love you! I’m thinking about keeping my fine butt out of the gym today and heading out for a walk outside instead. It just sounds like a good option later this afternoon when I hit a wall in my work… 😉
Oh goodness, I adore you :-p Today is recovery from the birthday celebrations last night, and then tomorrow night is a belated dinner out with my family. Oh goodness, I love birthday celebrations.
Those park pictures are BEAUTIFUL and super frame-able. Dooo ittttt.
You make a hot fucking zombie. Plus, I’ve heard brains are super low carb and high protein!!
Gorgeous pics from the park. I totally would have had the exact same reaction to that leaf haha
Okay, you went from preeeeeeety to scary, really fast! 🙂
I would love to work 4 tens but I could see how it would suck if you’re slammed all of the time. Work sucks. And so does call but it’s damn good money. Hopefully all of the drunk ghouls stay safe so they don’t need any CT’s!
I’m in serious need of sleep! Lucky me, I’m working tomorrow so that will be a 6 day work week! Feel better friend. Hopefully you get to go out with your friends! xoxo
Hahahaha omgshhh that is sooo funny and (almost) legit looking! At first I thought you put on zombie makeup~ 😀 And I hope you have a great and somewhat more rested weekend!
LOL!!! You are the picture editing queen. Have a good time with your friends and fine ass tonight. Have a drink for me too!
You just made my hectic day better. 😀 I’ve been busy all week getting ready for the two Day of the Dead art festivals I’m boothing at this weekend. Plus a trip to S.F. for pumpkin party on Saturday, I may be after some braaaaaaaainssss come Sunday evening 🙂
love the photos. definitely pretty leaves. taking time to breathe fresh air and enjoy the change of the season…. I so need to do that at some point this weekend 🙂
I have yet to decide what to dress up as, let along how I will be decorating this year. eeep. 5 days to put up Halloween décor and then take down. aaaaaah!
I had a similar reaction with a leaf. A Kale leaf. I tore it when I was ‘massaging’ it and said sorry. Stupid kale.
You pull off the zombie look with style- pale or no pale strut it- like a BOSS.
Sounds like you have been doing exactly what you need to do to feel better which is give your body rest and just go with what you want to do not what you feel you ‘should’ do which is so great!! Loving all those autumn photos they are so pretty.
We don’t really get into Halloween here but I did go to a Halloween party one year and dressed up as a zombie cheerleader. Essentially to live out my lifelong dream of being a cheerleader 😉
Haha! We all have it in us, don’t we? I was a cheerleader for the wrestling team in high school…yeah, all we did was sit on the mat and slap it with our hands while singing cheers…and I dropped out after a year! But at least I got a UNIFORM out of it! 😉
Oh love, you are exactly what I need to wake up with every morning. Im so glad I read your blog first thing 🙂
Glad to hear you take some time for yourself!! I must say, those pictures of that park are absolutely stunning. Gosh Im jealous. I can take pictures of the beach or some traffic where Im at, and that’s pretty much it. Not as scenic here in the city of LA!
Im planning on being a minion this Halloween from Despicable Me, because its pretty much my favorite movie 🙂 It was either that or Po, from Kung Fu Panda, and although I want to eat all the candy in the universe this week, Im not really fond of becoming a “big fat panda.” 🙂
Awww, girl you always know how to make me smile! 😀 <- See? Lol Oh my gosh, I can't WAIT to see you in your minion costume!! That's awesome!
I love love love being able to wake up without an alarm on weekends… Except when my body forgets that it’s the weekend and I wake up at 6:00am like usual. Boo.
It sounds like you had quite the offbeat schedule going on there and I’m glad that you got in some good sleep. Definitely needed!
Ah! Great Halloween photo edits.
I think it it so great that you just listened to your body and rested when you needed to rest.
Your park pictures are seriously beautiful.
Ps you make a pretty zombie.
O Gosh, you look SO scary, I love it. Teach us in Pic Monkey please!
And the pics from the walk are beautiful! I so need to go on a photowalk soon. I hope you got better and had a great dinner with your friends!
Bahaha! This post just made me giggle.
Pretty leaf photos too! Honestly, it’s the weekend here now and I’m feeling freakin stressed out, oat bran for dinner sounds good 😉
Hahaha you’re hilarious. I hope you’re having a great and relaxing weekend – it sounds like you need it after last week!
Yesterday I went to Toronto to visit a friend and tomorrow I’m helping out my old work at a gluten free expo, so today I’ve been taking it easy and getting things done. I could seriously use another 2 days of this weekend though!
personally, i think you pull off the zombie look pretty darn good.. you sexayyyy lady you 🙂
p.s. picmonkey is totally on my shit list with charging all the cool things these days. wtf! we’re not all richhh!
Even as a zombie, you like hot. You can eat my brains, although there might not be much left after last week. Was it a full work moon or something?! Ef it; it’s over now and we’re moving forward. I love the park pictures, and I realize you must have been face first in the mud for that walkway shot. It was worth it too! Incredible.
Haha! I almost was! You should’ve seen me trying to get up with my bum knee…good thing the park was pretty empty that day! 😉
PS, I’m sure dirty minds have the best tasting brains…you better watch out!
Hahaha! Love it. PS I seriously almost made pb pumpkin oat bran today. Not even joking. And I have an empty jar of creamy nuttzo (cry) that I was gonna put it in. Then I got rushed to get ready and I didn’t have time. But…there’s always overnight oats 😉
Yes, there is ALWAYS overnight oats! And one of these days I’ll get my hands on a jar of Nuttzo!
your day sounds like what mine should have been yesterday! i went to a party saturday night and didn’t get home until 4, then didn’t get to sleep til 5, and woke up at 5:22 and was unable to get back to sleep. i didn’t crash until 9:30 last night. um, what?! :/ I’m looking a lot like your last pic today. LOVE the photoshopping. BRAAAAINNNNZZZZ.
Those pictures are gorgeous! I really need to take my fancy camera outside!! Oh and learn how to use it like you do. 😉
Do you watch the Walking Dead? I just started to this season and apparently there is an app or something to zombify yourself..haven’t checked it out for fear of giving myself nightmares though haha!
PS thanks again for your lovely guest post! <3
Thanks girlie! I’ve only seen the first season of The Walking Dead…I need to get caught up on Netflix…but that app sounds like something I could lose many many hours of precious time with! Haha!
Aww, thanks for having me! I’m just glad to help out…I love that you’re doing this series! Calee’s post is actually what prompted me to contact Glam! 😀
That leaf is pretty damn fine.
Hope your face stops spewing blood in time for your dinner tonight. 😉
Just realized when I went back to get your cookie pb butter recipe that I completely failed at life and thought you posted this today. Whoops.
