All I need today is to lose a measly .4! So what do I do last night? Stuff my face with low fat cheese and reduced fat crackers, and a few spoonfuls of full on fatty fat fat chocolate brownie ice cream. What the fuck?
In my defense dinner turned out TERRIBLY. I decided to try a pork chop marinade consisting of angry orchard hard cider, garlic, salt and pepper. In theory, it should have been delicious. In reality it was a full on failure. The dogs liked it at least! I also stuffed my face with Brussels sprouts if that counts for anything.
Not feeling like cooking another meal we just reached for our cheese and crackers and had a cathartic hour of going through our day and the future.
My birthday is this week and my good friend Lauren, from North Carolina, is coming to visit me! I haven’t seen her since I moved in 2009! (I lived in Wilmington, NC for two years in 2007-2009.) I am so excited she is coming! Joey has a show on my birthday, which kind of sucks, but at least we will be at the bar around our friends. My parents will be bringing a cake and ringing in the big 24 with me :).
Joey and I also got on the topic of what he was going to be getting me for my birthday. Now, let me preface this by saying he is a TRUE man when it comes to buying gifts. Unless its explicitly written out for him, he blanks. Which is fine! But unless I specifically say what I need and where to find it, he’s lost. However, for my graduation present he did pick out a gorgeous Michael Kors watch all on his own :). So, this year, since I haven’t laid out a blue print of ideas he blanked. And he honestly thought handing me a literal bag of money was going to suffice.
You may think “what kind of girl doesn’t want a bag of money!?!?” I think what I enjoy most on my birthday gift-wise, is the thought. I like to picture him out in the mall looking around, or remembering something I may have said I liked a while ago…but that’s all for the movies! (Now I have had boyfriends who shopped this way, but they lacked in just about every single department.) So when he said he was thinking of giving me a bag of money I Almost choked on a brownie piece. I REALLY thought he was kidding, but by the complete confusion on his sweet face as to why I wouldn’t be jumping for joy at a bag of money kind of leads me to believe he truly thought it was a great idea. So I made a deal with him. I told him to keep his bag of money, and he can instead take me shopping for new clothes. I’m happily too small for almost everything I own right now, and this way Joey can help me pick out some new duds and were all happy!
I figured I’ve got everything I could possibly want. He freakin asked me to marry him this year and handed over a GORGEOUS rock, so honestly what more can I ask for? Apparently new clothes haha. Either way, bags full of clothes to me are always better than a bag full of money.
Ill be updating again today I’m sure after weigh in. Wish me luck on that .4 to get me to 60 lbs lost!
