Besides being a fantastic U2 song it was also kind of the theme of my day.  Yesterday I planned to blog but things got so hectic I completely spaced. The highlight of my day yesterday was certainly my visit to see the hair guru Caleb. I am rocking the Snow White look here. Maybe I should be her in the Princess 1/2 marathon next year!

This morning I was up super early for a Saturday. I had a handful of All Bran crackers because I strongly believe I have been waiting too long to eat in the mornings. I know I have mentioned these guys before but I love these crackers. They have almost a sweet taste. Having them with some milk is my absolute favorite.

I got in some stretching and errands before breakfast. I contemplated a workout but the hubs and I have a pretty major workout planned for tomorrow and I want to be at my best for it. Definitely check in with me tomorrow to see how it goes. After the errands/stretching I made my famous low fat Vanilla French toast.  In order to make this you will need:

  • 2 eggs (or 6 egg whites which I prefer)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg (to taste)

It is SO simple. You mix the above ingredients, dunk your whole grain bread, and “fry” with non-stick Pam/Butter Spray. Then drizzle on some fat free syrup, cut up a side of fruit, and add a slice of turkey or soy sausage. Yum! I had mine with a V8 fusion.

After breakfast only one of the twosome that is Bryan and Sara headed up to Roanoke for an event with friends. One of my best friends baby girl is turning one and today was her party. Bryan gets a free pass though because he needed to spend some time with a friend who is going into the military.

For those of us who are not yet to the baby phase of life sometimes these events can be, well, awkward. I knew that was not going to be the case with Kristen’s party for her baby and I was right.  It was gorgeous. Pink and brown decor, fresh cut flowers, a cookout by the pool, cocktails for the grown-ups… I told her minus the babies and it could have been a party I threw for myself. 😉 Speaking of babies, her little one looked adorable and all of the kids/babies were so well behaved and precious. It was a really adorable and fun event.

Did I mention how much I LOVE the pink? Partying in Pink. I like it!!!

Every Last Detail was Gorgeous.

This made me giggle all day. Keeping the big “kids” and the little kids happy is the key to a great party!

My thoughtful pal made sure to have some veggie burgers for me since red meat and I are not really seeing much of each other anymore. I also had one scoop of baked beans and one gigantic scoop of pasta salad.  I was also told I had to mention the one Hershey kiss I ate too.

I love good cookout food. Yum!

We of course took a moment to pose for some pictures…

After the Birthday party I headed back home to meet up with the hubs. We decided we wanted a relaxing night so we ended up at the movies. I love love love Katherine Heigel so we went to see Killers. I see all of her movies. Do you have an actor or actress that you cant resist going to see? I was also excited to see her hair in this movie since the previews are what inspired my current hair cut if you recall. We had a great time. We split one Icee  which is my favorite indulgence at the movies. My stomach may hurt a little from all the sugar but it was really tasty. What is your movie snack of choice?

I am that most excellent kind of tired and am heading to bed. I have ONE big workout to rest up for. Fingers crossed there is no rain!!

    Love it! I didn’t realize some people found baby events to be awkward. You’ll have to tell me more about this. Thanks again, friend! You’re the best 🙂 xoxo

      Just awkward like being the only single person at a party full of couples. You know? Not being a mom/dad yet sometimes peeps feel like they dont have anything to contribute to the conversation etc. BUT I knew that wasnt going to be the case with your family/friends and I was right. It was fab!
