Beach On The Brain

So I guess it’s a common ailment that right before vacation it is hard to think of anything else. The trouble with that is normally the week before vacation brings an extra busy work-week. At least that seems to be the case for me this week. I am trying to avoid going in on Friday so I have been doing 10-hour days this week. (Yes that is just as fun as it sounds). But, I only have one left, a normal 8-hour day on Thursday and then I am beach bound! (Well first I am pedicure bound because my toes are not looking their most fantastic). I am thinking “For Audrey” as my beached out toe color. What is your favorite pedicure color?


My 2.5 miles were all done at the gym today. It rained again. This seems to be a pattern on Tuesdays. The run went well though I have to admit I am feeling a little lazy today. I am blaming the rain.

Tonight I am making a to-do list for both my beach trip and my upcoming Chicago trip. I cannot believe The 2010 Healthy Living Summit is right around the corner! I am so excited to meet the girls who write some of my favorite blogs. I asked my husband if this made me a geek and he said yes. Ahem. I said I will just have to make geek chic. 😉 Thankfully my Healthy Living Summit roomie does not seem freaked out by my now daily emails. Im an excitable person what can I say?

The hubs and I are currently doing that super fun “we are leaving for a week so lets get creative and eat the random items in the house so nothing goes bad” thing. Tonight’s creation: Cheesy Mac with Veggie Pasta. 🙂

This is a very simple recipe. Simply take 1 box of whole grain pasta (or in this case veggie delight pasta)and prepare as directed. In a large skillet combine ground turkey, sliced onions, and any other veggies you have laying around. In a 2nd skillet make a béchamel (white cheese) sauce or simply buy a jar of your favorite store brand cheese sauce. Drain the meat mixture, stir in the cheese, stir in the prepared pasta and that’s it!

Now on to watch some of my new favorite cheesy show with the hubs… The Gates. Have you seen it?

Have a Happy and Healthy Tuesday (Ugh is it really only Tuesday?)
