Rise and shine, my Uncle Matt is in town.
I woke up early-ish to get a few things done before the day got too far along. Actually, that’s a lie, Kyle got up early and dragged me out of bed with him. So I watched while he did laundry, made coffee, and went to the store for milk (oops, ran out last night curbing my hummus/bread late night fiesta). I’m so lucky to have such a fabulous boyfriend. I do my best to pull my weight, making him dinners on my days off, etc. but there’s no denying it – he’s one of a kind.
NYSC smelled gross – like B.O. combined with excessive bathroom sanitizer spray…plus, it is like 140 degrees on the upstairs. With a combo of factors like that, it really makes running on an elliptical hard when you can’t breath. Needless to say, I got through it alive and hopefully just a bit stronger. Otherwise, I’m not sure it was worth it. I stretched minimally so I could just get the hell out of the place.
I was lazy and cooked the “eggs” in the microwave.
It looks sloppy, but tasted heavenly. Trust me, even Kyle was salivating at the fake bacon.
After lunch Kyle and I headed out for some continued shopping…
nobody told me there was a recession. I was trying to get a bunch of stuff before leaving for vacation. Time restraints make shopping a difficult experience (I am really picky and tend to take 10 hours just to make up my mind about a pair of socks). What’s even WORSE, I get worn out really easily, so I usually only last 2 hours. Do the math. Now it’s clear why I come home empty handed 99% of the time. Even though it was the weekend, stores weren’t as obnoxiously packed as they usually are. But, it’s just a matter of weeks before the holiday shopping season begins – and that scene is one I try to avoid at all costs. Good thing I found some bomb ass stuff in the first few places! Crisis averted 🙂

They were packed in the container like sardines…I just kept going and I felt like I wasn’t making a dent.
