Finally Friday!

I’m psyched for this weekend, so this week has gone by sort of slowly despite having lots of fun stuff going on at night, too.


Last night, after a Junior League event, I met up with Lacey and friends at MXco to celebrate el Cinco de Mayo. I had one margarita and then switched to the Tina creation I mentioned yesterday. It was actually really good! So good that I passed it around the table and made all of my friends try it. I hope nobody was sick or had cooties.


Tomorrow’s fun plans involve wearing a tight dress, so I had my bagel today so that I don’t feel bloated tomorrow. I had a whole wheat everything bagel, and I put sunflower butter on it when I got to work.

By the way, I don’t think I ever shared a pic of my new haircut. What do you think?


I mean, other than I take awkward pics of myself. I saw a picture of Reese Witherspoon while I was getting the highlights done and asked for the haircut to be like hers. Maybe it will help me find a hottie like Ryan Phillipe?

So my awesome plans for the weekend include:

  • a hot (literally) yoga date tonight with Miss Selena, where I will be sweating out margaritas.
  • a brunch and biking date with my long-lost friend Emily (confession: after coming home from margaritas last night, I totally stopped into the garage where my bike is locked up to make sure it was still there. The attendant definitely thought I was crazy.)
  • KENTUCKY DERBY PARTIES (um, hi, an excuse to get prepped out and party in sundresses and hats? Clearly this is one of my favorite days of the year.)
  • Mother’s Day with my family in NJ + a trip to Target

What are you up to this weekend??


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

You know how I wrote yesterday that sometimes I feel like I don’t work out “enough?”

Well, I realized before I went to sleep that I’ve worked out for seven days in a row.

So you better believe today is a rest day. This actually the first rest day in a while that’s felt forced to me–I’ve been on a pretty good workout kick again lately. But don’t worry, I’ll still be lifting a glass to my lips tonight as I celebrate Cinco de Mayo. (Cinco de Mayo 2010, apparently I forgot Cinco de Mayo in 2009???? Also, a lot of my pictures in old posts are missing since moving from Tumblr to WordPress–if anyone knows how to help with that, I’d be forever indebted to you…) I love margaritas, despite how many calories they have, but there’s a cocktail I read about in Tina’s book that I may try tonight if there’s not already pitchers of margaritas on the table. (While I believe you need to listen to your own body, I also believe sometimes in just going with the flow.)


I don’t have the book with me, but I think it’s tequila, soda water, a splash of lime juice and a splash of Diet Sprite. (I doubt most bars have Diet Sprite, but I suppose I’ll ask anyway.) If you’re in D.C., walk, don’t run to the Rio Grande. Best. Margaritas. Ever.


This morning I had the cookie dough oatmeal again. (And Tuesday. And Wednesday.) It looks so pretty at home but so gross by the time I get to work. There’s nothing green in it, so I have no idea why it takes on that hue.
