So here we goes my lame attempt at organizing the randomness of my thoughts and weekend. Go!
A is for Aluminum Foil: The material we cover the sitting-part of our couches in every time we leave the house these days. It's an effective Lola-repellant and gives our house that very modern look we're going for (yeah, right)...apparently she just woke up one day and decided it was fine to lay on the couches all day when we're gone, now. NOT OKAY, dearest.
B is for Big Girl Camera: Yeah, you thought I gave up on that, huh? Almost. But this weekend Matt & I dusted 'er off and took 'er downtown for some practice (see "T" for evidence).
C is for Couch Potatoes: A pretty good description of Matt, Lola, and I on any given night this weekend.
D is for Dinner: We have successfully meal-planned BFD lunches & dinners for the whole month of January!! I'm so proud of us!
E is for Energy: Something I lack when I don't sleep at night (see "I") and then can't have a normal amount of caffeine. Booooo.
F is for Fashion: My friend-turned-coworker Diana and I sometimes like to pretend we're fashion bloggers, so we take awkward pictures of ourselves.
But GET READY, because we have declared this upcoming week to be "Fashion Week" and we're doing it EVERY DAY. I know. Can you handle the excitement?
G is for the Gym and Grocery Store: Two important players in our exciting Saturday ritual.
H is for Half-Marathon: Something I would never, ever, do. HA! Did you think I was about to say I'd signed up for one or something? Are you INSANE? Have you ever met me?
I is for Insomnia: also known as, why the heck do I wake up at 3am every night and why can't I go back to sleep? Uggggggh.
J is for Jesus: I'm a big fan of his.
K is for Kiwi: one of the many fruits we dehydrated this weekend. Other victims include apples, bananas, strawberries, plantains, and mangoes.
L is for Lip Glaze: I received the set of Stila Lip Glazes I'd ordered from Sephora last week and OH MY GOSH I love them. I got a set of 8 and I am obsessed with all of the colors. Love the balance of pigmentation and shine in these, and the texture is awesome.
M is for Mexican Food: The love of my life and passion of my soul. And lunch on Saturday.
N is for New Recipes: We've made SO MANY of these lately and most of them have been great! Last night's dinner was one of our favorites yet, with bonus points for being insanely cheap and easy: Tuscan White Bean and Roasted Garlic Soup.
O is for Organic: Shout-out and big high fives to Aldi for the big increase in their organic food and produce offerings of late! In just the past few weeks they've started carrying SO many more organic items that are still way affordable...WIN!
P is for Poop: Matt and I had nursery duty at church today and while changing a very dirty diaper I GOT POOP ON MY FINGER!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really nasty. Maybe it would be less disgusting if it were my own kid's, but I don't know.
Q is for Queen of Hearts: The title of the book I'm test-reading for my friend Colleen. Did quite a bit reading on that this weekend and it's SO good!!
R is for Reading: Something I did a LOT of this weekend.
S is for Scratching: I feel like I do this NONSTOP these days. For some reason I itch like...all the time. Especially my legs. And shoulders. And wrists. Possible reasons: I have chicken pox. I have poison ivy. I'm allergic to my skin. All of these I have ruled out, so feel free to offer other possible explanations.
T is for Train Tracks: Where we decided to pose for our photo shoot on Saturday.
U is for U-Verse: We signed up for U-Verse for our internet at home. Yay for being able to use all of our computers again!
V is for Vacuuming: I finally cleaned out my car this weekend (it's been on my weekend to-do list for like...months) and even vacuumed it! I barely recognize it anymore.
W is for Weather: On Friday, there was a chance of 'wintery precipitation' (and it sleeted for about .2 seconds). On Tuesday the high is 72. Welcome to Georgia!
X is for Gas-X: As in, something we had to make a special trip to Target to buy. Apparently the massive increase in fiber-y things and beans in our diets does special things to one's digestive system??
Y is for Yellow Primrose: The plant Matt bought me yesterday. Yellow because it's my favorite color, primrose because it reminded him of Hunger Games. Does my man know me well or what?
Z is for Zumba: The best way to workout ever, except for if you're in the middle of a great book that you can't put down, in which case the only acceptable workout is walking on a treadmill or elliptical because that won't interrupt your reading. I speak from experience, kids.
