I’m coming to you a little later than normal today because I was crazy busy this weekend and didn’t have time to write this on Sunday night like I normally do. I have a feeling that some good things might be happening soon, but more to come on that later. Fingers crossed, but I saw the most beautiful rainbow on Friday on my way home, so I’m taking that as a good sign!
On Friday, I met up with my aunt and uncle to celebrate National Frozen Yogurt Day. Menchie’s was hoppin!
Since there was a TON of people there, I had to put my rainbow sprinkles under the hot fudge, rather than on top like I normally do, which definitely makes for a much less pretty photo. Why don’t they put the sprinkles next to the hot toppings? Anywhoo… I think this may have been the only time my mix came to under $2.00 (because they were giving the first 6 ounces away for free).
I also spent some quality time cuddling with my puppy. She spent the day on Saturday at the puppy spa and she wasn’t very happy with me after that. I’m glad I was able to get some cuddle time in with her before she decided she hated me for torturing her with a bath.
On Saturday, I worked an auction to help raise money for an elementary school that is about an hour north from where I live. I was feeling a little fancy, so I stepped up my game and even wore heels, which is something I usually NEVER do. I hate heels with a passion and usually avoid wearing them like the plague, so this was a moment worthy of a shameless selfie in probably the nicest bathroom I’ve ever been in.
These moms and dads sure knew how to party for a good cause. They were all pretty drunk by the end and started bidding crazy insane amounts of money on things no one needs, so all in all, it was a success.
Then I headed up north again bright and early Sunday morning to meet my friend, Matt and his dad for the annual Seattle bike swap. I’ve never been to one of these before, so I was really excited to see what it was all about.
Since I really want to start doing bike races, I was on a mission to find a sweet new bike. Mission accomplished! I came home with this navy blue bike that I found at a steal of a price. Now, I’ve just got to spend a little time fixing it up so that I’m ready for my first race in April.
I ended up also picking up a brand new pair of lime green and black tires, green handle bar tape and a flashing light for the back so people can see me! I can’t wait to get all my new stuff on my bike so I can see what the finished product looks like!
Then I FINALLY invested in a pair of spin shoes. It’s about time! In the end, I walked out with a ton more stuff that I planned on picking up at a fraction of my bike budget, so I’m very happy with the outcome.
After the swap, I met up with my friend Callie for brunch at my favorite spot, Portage Bay, followed by a movie. Brunch must always be accompanied by mimosas. It’s a rule.
I ordered the Berry Crumble French Toast that turned out to be much more like a huge dessert than I imagined. I ordered it because I wanted to use the breakfast bar for toppings, but as you can tell, I didn’t really need to add anything. The breakfast bar is the thing I love most about Portage Bay and you can only use it if you order some form of pancakes or French toast (hence my order). The breakfast bar includes all types of fresh fruits, nuts, fresh whipped cream and other toppings. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in the door and it will make you drool!
After brunch, we walked around downtown for awhile to walk off some of our sugar high before we went to see “Wild.” It was an interesting movie, but more of a RedBox rental type, than a must see in the theaters.
Then I finally got my hands on the Red Velvet Oreos that I’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately. I’ve gotta say, they’re not as good as I expected them to be. They do taste much better when dipped in frosting, but what doesn’t?!?! I think it might be time to go on a sugar detox. I’ve been eating WAY too much junk food lately and I think all the sugar is starting to make me feel a little less than stellar.
Questions of the Day:
