Happy Fall Weekend!

This weekend marked the official beginning of the fall, and it was basically as cliché as it gets. Wake up with a sore throat, head downstairs in my sweats where I cuddle up in a blanket, watch a chick flick while waiting for Ryan and Chelsey to wake up. It brings me back to our college years when we would go home for a weekend together. Aside from the sore throat, I loved it.

Plus, I got to snuggle up with my little boy for a bit.

Lazy Fall mornings are my favorite, although this one wasn’t as lazy as I was hoping. I had a nonstop weekend, with not much relaxing mixed in.

Saturday I had a date with Lindsay’s co-worker around 3:30, so I was able to get a great workout in prior to the date, along with picking up half of Ryan’s birthday gift.

Saturday Workout

  • 4.5 mile run
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side dumbbell crunches
  • 2 sets of 13 skiing dumbbell squats
  • 2 sets of 13 deadlift to upward row
  • 20 minutes elliptical
  • 10 minutes stairmaster

After that, I met up with the dating prospect and he bought us each a large bucket of balls to hit. Each. I SAID EACH! Holy freakin hell, I never thought the bucket would end. I had a lot of fun with my prospect and plan on seeing him again. Plus, he’s 6’2 with muscles. HELLLLLLLO!

After sweating my face off, I cleaned up quickly and met up with Lindsay and her new beau for a drink, well, they drank beers and I guzzled water. Then we demolished an order of barbecue chicken nachos. Oooops. The cheesy goodness was calling to me. I wish I had snapped a photo but I really didn’t want to freak the new beau out.

Sunday I woke up too early for a fall morning and went for a 4 mile run that felt too good to be true for a post nacho fest, before heading down to Boston to visit my bestie, Mike.

Mike and I grabbed brunch at Stephi’s on Tremont, where I ordered the Fruit Salad that came with homemade granola and honey yogurt. The meal was pretty good, maybe worth a B, but there could have been more yogurt and granola.

After brunch, we left the South End and enjoyed a little shopping on Newbury Street, and since I had never been, I was beyond excited!

North Face had an amazing running display, and I couldn’t help but to snap a photo of it for motivation. I also managed to document Mike checking his ass out in a pair of Diesel jeans. 🙂

I had an amazing day with my best friend. It’s difficult not being 15 minutes away, but he is succeeding in Boston and having the time of his life so I’m very happy for him. Plus, he’s only 45 minutes away, which isn’t too bad, and while I’m not a fan of Boston, he makes it better.

I’m exhausted and cannot wait to crawl into bed in 5.7 seconds. Hope you all had a fun Fall weekend!

Once Again Target Took My Money

I love Target. I used to work there for 6+ years throughout high school, college, and post grad while looking through work. It’s safe to say that no one, and I don’t care if you’re a man or female, young or old, there’s no way of leaving Target without dropping serious cash.

I started off in the clothes section, where I found a cute blazer, trendy kicks, and an adorable bikini top that was on clearance for $4.98. I carried all the items around with me, and found even more items. After picking up my expensive deodorant, new workout pants and candy corn, I opted to put the blazer and kicks back. I’ll get them later this week when I print out coupons.

$4.98, what a steal!

I cannot wait to find a cute pair of bottoms that will match this top. Already looking forward to Summer 2013!

Yay for Fall!

Candy corn is one of my favorite candies, especially when Fall comes. This bag was ripped open before I made it to the parking lot. Halfway home I was suffering from a sugar overload. Pretty sure I OD’d on those suckers tonight. Ooopsies! 🙂

In the online dating world, Tinder is considered especially heinous. In Boston, the hopeful females who swipe through these profiles are members of an elite squad known as "Single and Swiping". These are their stories.
