No evil cat fights to report from last night – phew!
Did anyone happen to catch The Office last night? Seriously, that was one of the best episodes I’ve seen in a really long time. You’ve got to watch it on Hulu if you didn’t see it…beginning and ending segments were AWEsome and probably a blast to film. What a job, eh?
So, ROAD TRIP!!! Yahhh!! You may recall a post from last week where I told you I picked up a couple of Snuggies at Bed Bath & Beyond for a reason to be revealed at a later date. Well, it’s that later date. Today I’m headed for Chicago and tomorrow I’ll be attending Chicago Snuggie Pub Crawl 2K9!!
It’s true! I’ll be joining 2,500 other Snuggie lovers decked in out in their Snuggie color of choice (mine’s blue!) for the entire afternoon in Lincoln Park! Can you imagine?? It’s going to be like the pod people or something! There’s going to be bands, drink specials and yes, even closing ceremonies. Parts of the proceeds are even going to charity, so I had to go, right??
In addition to the pub crawl, I’m also going to see my buds 🙂 I try and make it to Chicago to see my friends up there it least every couple of months. It’s a really great city – so much to do, beautiful lake front running paths, fabulous EATS – I just love visiting. Here’s a picture from a visit last year:
I think it’s important to have a plan regarding healthy habits whenever you are taken out of your everyday routine. My plan is to not eat unnecessarily and yes, I am going to a pub crawl, but I’m not planning on drinking excessively. That’s just gross, makes me feel gross and although yes – I am very young – try telling my body that after a night out on the town!
To get myself fueled for the grueling 5.5 hour drive, I took some inspiration from On a Lobster Placemat and a dessert recipe I saw yesterday and made: S’more Oats!! 😛 My bowl contained:
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- Handful of honey teddy grahams
- 1 T chocolate chips
- 1 T marshmallows
HOLY cow what a combo! Bust out the crappy tent, the bug spray and a campfire, because I was in s’more heaven! This was really delish – more like a dessert than a breakfast – but hey, I’m ok with that! Ben ended up going to a friends’ house for dinner last night, so I had his spare salmon salad left over that I packed for a healthy lunch option on the road. If I didn’t have the salad, I would most likely get a subway or a Wendy’s salad – both great on-the-go healthy options!
So road trip = sporadic, if any, posting – I know, I’m bummed!!! I’m going to bring my laptop along and try and post randomly if I can. If not, I’ll post a full recap of the weekend’s festivities on Sunday!
Alright friends, I’m off! Wish me luck and tell me what you’re doing this weekend! Got any fun plans to look forward to? Laundry? Errands? Shopping? Let’s hear it!
