Saturday, January 30, 2010


Today was a perfect Saturday. Well, almost perfect. The only thing keeping it from true perfection was that I got up at 6:30 and it was negative 10 degrees when I left the house! (Side note: the day after my last post Lainey actually woke up at 3:30 am. Awesome.)

My day started out with my 90 minute endurance spin class.


I was hardcore today. Spin shoes: check. Two water bottles: check. Heart rate monitor: check. The only thing missing was padded bike shorts. I previously didn’t think I needed padded shorts, but I realized today that I was dead wrong. After about 60 minutes, my vagina was killing me. Actually, I think it was my pubic bone, but I just wanted to say vagina. Today’s class was much easier than last time. It was all endurance, meaning maintaining a constant heart rate for approximately the whole 90 minutes. By the end of the class I had burned almost 1000 calories!

After the gym, Lainey went to a birthday bounce party. While she was there we went to the mall and hit up my fave store:


Have I already told you that I heart Banana? Well, I do. Also, it was 25% off everything if you had a Banana, Gap, or Old Navy card. Sweeeet. All, I got was a vest with a long sleeved tee to go under, but it’s seriously dead sexy.

I also popped my Forever 21 cherry. For real, I had never been in there. Since Alivia and Shawn were with me, I knew there was no time to look at clothes, so I headed straight to the jewelry and got this:

80695573-02Isn’t it bad ass? It’s a freakin’ boom box! I can’t wait to wear it to church tomorrow.

After we picked Lainey up from the germ bounce fest, we went to lunch at:

qdoba_color_logo_1_[2]%20(2)I love Qdoba. In fact, after we went there I spent the rest of the afternoon saying to Shawn “I love Qdoba. Did I tell you I love Qdoba?” He might have been annoyed after about the second or third time I said it, but I didn’t care. I was too busy day dreaming about the Naked Taco Salad and Chicken Quesadilla I ate. Yes, that sounds like a lot of food, but it was from their new “Craft 2 Menu” which is smaller portions. Not only was it delicious, but it was also free.

After lunch we made a couple other stops, and finally ended up at:


What is it about Target that just makes you want to buy shit? You could go in there to buy Valentine cards and come out with a TV. Which, almost happened. Ok, only sort of. If I would have said okay, I guarantee you Shawn would have catapulted that 50” into the cart faster than you can say cocka doodle doo. Unlucky for him, but lucky for me I hadn’t started drinking this yet:


Which is exactly what I’m doing now. Drinking wine and listening to the Bare Naked Ladies with Alivia and Lainey. Oh, and Lainey just told Shawn if she had a million dollars she would buy a brother. Is that the going rate now?

P.S. I’m laughing my ass off about that boom-box necklace. You know I actually didn’t buy that, right? I’m not sure if this is really that funny, or if it’s the wine talking?

That wine looks good! Haha I was thinking is she really gonna wear that to church?!

Theta Mom said...

I think that boom-box necklace is so funny! lol Love Banana and you are a hard-core spinner! I need to get back into some sort of exercise routine. Seriously.

Thanks so much for stopping by Theta Mom - so glad to hear you relate! Love when I "meet" a new reader! I am your most recent follower and look forward to blogging with you!

I was actually a little worried you were going to wear that to church in the morning..solely because I would not be able to see it in person, hahahaha!

1000 calories?? Enjoy that wine!

Kelsey Claire said...

How is that wine? I almost bought a bottle of it tonight but decided on another one! Looks like you had a very nice and productive day!

Anonymous said...

That was one kick ass Saturday girl! XOXO

Karls said...

Just to confirm... it's TOTALLY the vagina that hurts... feels like it's an overcooked hot dog after 90s of spin.

Laura and Ryan said...

hahahaha! i love when you said your vagina hurt. I also laughed out loud about the boom box and wearing it to church.

That wine looks good :)

Hillary said...

I have never in my life thought that you were ghetto, but the necklace made me rethink everything I have ever thought. Glad it was a joke!!!

I HATE Qudoba! Everything we drive past one, I have to talk about how much I hate it! I'm not kidding! Maybe it has gotten better in the four years since I've last been to one.

You can tell Lainey that the going rate for brothers these days is about 30 grand, plus or minus 10 grand. She could have 30 little brothers for a million dollars!!! You would be sure to have your own realty show then!!!

Jenny.Lee said...

Girl 90 minutes! You are totally hard core! I had to laugh at the boom box necklace. ;)

Corrie and Phil said...

Hillary has a good idea with the 30brothers. I would love to read your blog after that.

The boom box necklace was too much! I kept thinking, "Oh no...Tami has good I totally fashionless?"

ty said...

funny story. i was in there two days ago, and i bought a gold parrot necklace that was sitting right next to the boom box. i silently thought to myself, WHO THE HELL WOULD BUY THIS? but then i saw it here, and before i saw the joke part, i thought, well she's cute, maybe i should reconsider.


melissa said...

Just found your blog - love it. That boom box necklace cracked me up. I burst out laughing at the "Can't wait to wear it to church part." Then I started to worry you might be serious. I was glad to see the p.s. at the bottom!

jill said...

either you're too drunk or i'm not drunk enough ... i TOTALLY bought the boom box necklace thing. and was immediately worried about you, friend. i can only imagine your banana vest layered with the boom box bling at church. ha! majorly impressed with your 1000 calorie day ... i have lots of those, but they're mostly INcoming, not outgoing. ha! hope your monday is good friend!

Amy said...

Please tell Miss Lainey that I have an adorable (albeit, devil-like at times) 1 year old boy I will ship over to her. Free. Just try him out for a few days!

Seriously, no charge!

Sara said...

Is it bad that I kinda like the boom-box necklace? :) Ha!!

Leah said...

You went to F21 and bought yourself a boombox? You are really funny. LOL

And I hope the vagina doesn't hurt anymore. LOL again. xoxo

Heather said...

I actually believed you that you bought the boombox necklace. And All I thought was, what is going to go with that in her bananna republic wardrobe?
I know Target is a vortex that sucks you in. I can always find something not on the list that I need.

Stephanie said...

Were you at Woodland? I was there on Saturday!

Funniest thing in this blog: "I just wanted to say vagina".

I just love your blog - but I wanted to see you rock out the necklace

Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

90 minute spin crazy! I wish I had that willpower. You didn't buy the necklace? I think it's cute, like in a crazy funky kind of way. Can I have a glass of that wine you're drinking? HA!
Have a great day!


Kristin said...

I am fairly certain I would have passed out at the 30 minute mark. Ah ha ha

A Wedding Story said...

Target is my weakness!! You're so right!

Llama said...

Unfortunately, I own a necklace almost exactly like that insane boom box necklace. A little boy in my class thought it would be nice to give it to me for xmas. Nice thought....but a large pocket book necklace with a watch inside?...not so nice!

I <3 New Age White. Yes, I'm a stalker and yes I have just read like your entire blog. In fact, I was just about to send you a handy dandy little email telling you how much I love it. Which I'm still going to do. Hopefully you don't think I'm crazy or a stalker by the length of this overdue comment.
