This morning, we woke up had some coffee and I watched Part One of the finale for the Spanish Princess.
I hate how they ended it. Part 2 will not air until sometime in 2020! It’s a good thing I studied the British monarchy!
Drew was slow to come downstairs this morning. Drew made eggs for us for breakfast, and we took it easy until it was time to get ready to go back to the pool. The original plan was to possibly go to Stephanie’s pool and swim with her kids, Emma and Stephen, but she was coming down with a cold and an ear infection! I told her to please rest up and we will see her as soon as she feels better!
Drew and I went to the wave pool and laid out until about 3:15pm. He wanted to grill out this evening. When we got home, we made chicken on the grill. It was so good! I love it when he grills out. I also made guacamole and I think we filled up on that before dinner.
Our neighbor came outside talked to us for a bit. I guess some of the board members came by and power washed the siding of our house. There was some moss or green color to it from lack of sunlight. I was glad the association took care of it for us.
Goals for next week:
- Continue to read for my summer class
- write my 200-250 word original discussion post and have it posted by Friday 6/28
- meet with my adviser to prep for my interview
The Super Bowl is on tonight. Who are you rooting for? or are you just tuning to watch the halftime performances? or maybe you want to catch some of the commercials? I will be watching it for a little. I am rooting for Tom Brady and the Patriots. I have been in love with him for a while. I just think he is cute. I know that there are people out there, who will say he is a cheater and that he played with deflated balls etc. I am not a die-hard fan and don’t care if he “cheated” he is just nice to look at in my opinion.
The half time performance this year is Maroon 5, Cardi B, and I can’t think who else at the moment, but I want to go back to 2001 when the most epic half time performance happened. Please take me back to when Britney Spears, Nelly, Aerosmith, NSYNC, and Mary J Blige collaborated on one stage.
Please bring me back to those days. There will never be another more amazing half time performance.
After this performance of Super Bowl 2001, the half time shows went downhill.
So no matter the reason you are planning to watch the Super Bowl tonight, enjoy the game and party safely!
Work was good, but it was Monday. I don’t know where I got the energy from, it must have been adrenaline. I wanted to go to the gym.
When we got home, I got ready and we drove to the gym separately. I wanted to get back into it and I was feeling guilty from eating McDonalds last night.
When I arrived to the gym, it was a little packed for my liking. I was glad to see a treadmill available. I hate running next to someone though, but it was going to have to do. I walked on a 3.5 incline at a 3.5 speed, for about 5 mins. Then I lowered the incline to 0 and turned up the speed to 4.7. I ran at this speed for about 3-5 mins, then went back to to walking at the 3.5 speed with the incline at 3.5. I kept this repetition up for about 20 mins, then did some strength training.
When I left the gym I was sore, but it felt good to whip myself back into it. When I got home, I got a shower, and watched Very Cavallari. I missed the episode that aired last night.
My plans on Wednesday fell through. Originally, I was supposed to go to barre class, then get ice cream at either the Sewickley confectionery or dairy queen like last week with Anthony. Then come back to my house and watch The Handmaid’s Tale. Well, Anthony texted me and said he had a hell of a day and was not feeling well. He canceled on me. I was bummed at first, but it all kind of worked out. Ever since Monday, I have been a little off with my stomach. For lunch, I typically bring a homemade spinach salad with mushrooms, little tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers, and oil is the dressing. I eat that every day no problem.
On Monday, I used mushrooms from last week thinking they were still good. I bet they weren’t. My stomach was off on Monday, in the afternoon, and still off (I am better now). I hate feeling sick at work. Having Anthony cancel on me, was probably best.
When we got home, Andrew went to the store for me and got me some soup and crackers. He heated up the soup and I watched the finale of the Handmaid’s Tale. Here are my thoughts. SPOILER ALERT: Okay, what the hell was Offred thinking?!? Get in the Hummer and get out of there! Are you going to stay in Gilead!? for what!? I am glad you got Holly/Nicole safely, but are you thinking girl!? You missed your chance. I love how she slapped the commander. Yes, that’s right! That was probably my favorite scene. I hated how he said, “Could be nice, we could try for a boy.” Ugh gross. No way. What about Nick? I feel back for Luke/June, but I like Nick and June better. I don’t know. I just do. Nick is way cuter. What are they going to do in Season three? Is she really going back to that house? They won’t take her back. I am so ready for Season 3. Comment below if you like.
Tonight, Very Cavallari aired on E. I have been waiting for this show to debut! I grew up in the beginning of the reality television era and I loved shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills, etc. I remember clearly the cliques that broke out over Team LC or Team Kristin. I was team Kristin. I did like Lauren, but something about Kristin. Now it has been 7 years since the Hills and she is back! Kristin Cavallari is such a majestic bombshell. I love her style, her wit, and her husband is pretty cute too.
I tuned in and was in love. Kristin started her own business titled “Uncommon James”, which consists of unique jewelry designs, and household goods. I now follow Uncommon James on Instagram. It was interesting to hear how Kristin did not put any of her money towards marketing, and just used Social media to promote the brand and sell the merchandise. She is the example of boss babe. The right amount of girl power that women need to possess in this world.
Even though it has been awhile, since the Hills and Laguna beach. The viewer still sees a little glimmer of the Kristin that we all know and love. I am anxious to see how this show unfolds and what is in store for the viewers. I will be tuning into E next Sunday at 10pm, will you?
So I have not been going to the gym lately. I am having a hard time getting back into it. This morning, I had every intention of trying to go to barre class after work today, but it just didn’t happen.
After work, I waited for Anthony to come over and then we went to the Sewickley Confectionery and got ice cream. This place is so cute. It looks like your old fashioned neighborhood ice cream place. They have scoop ice cream, and not soft serve. They also have gelato. I was to get some gelato for Drew on our way home, but for now, we were going to enjoy our ice cream.
When we went outside to sit, the tables were wet from the rain last night, so Anthony wiped his chair down a bit. I didn’t care I just sat down. I got bananas and cream ice cream on a cake cone. Anthony got chocolate cherries? I am not sure. He had him in a waffle cone. We talked about the dates that he was getting ready to go on, and how he just doesn’t seem to care about dating anymore. We all go through phases.
After ice cream, we went back to my house and watched Handmaid’s Tale. This is the second to last episode before the finale. We were screaming at the TV. Girl don”t do that! Girl you are wasting too much time, get going! I am so nervous for the finale. We planned to watch it together next week and get ice cream again!
After work today, I went to my parents to watch the dogs. I was excited just to hang out, relax, and catch up on Riverdale. My parents weren’t due home until tomorrow, so I had one more night to snuggle my dogs.
After I got them out to go to the bathroom, I fed them, and then I sat down and ate the rest of my subway sandwich from last night. Mother nature came yesterday and paid to be a visit, so kind of her. My PMS was easier this time. I wish it could be like that all the time.
After dinner, I went up and took a shower, and then put some comfortable clothes on. I was so tired. I wanted to get to bed early tonight and get a good nights sleep. I watched an episode of Riverdale some more and finished my laundry. My phone rang around 9pm. I looked at the screen it was my mom. She said we are on our way home! I said, “what?” she said, “Yea we drove straight through. We are in Washington, PA and we will see you around 10pm.” I said, “Oh wow okay.” I was looking forward to snuggling my dogs for one more night, but I will see them again soon. I have to come back and dog sit in September.
When they arrived home, I took the dogs outside to greet them. My parents were so happy to see the pups. Once inside, my parents greeted me and thanked me for taking care of the dogs. They insisted that I just spent the night anyway because I have a hair appointment in Crafton the next day. I agreed that would be smart. I didn’t really feel like packing the car up tonight anyway. They unpacked and gave me some gifts they bought on their trip. My dad got me a dream catcher and some shot glasses for Drew. They seemed relaxed for the most part.
Before going to bed, I watched a little bit of the protest for Antwon Rose. He was shot 3 times in the back by an East Hills Pittsburgh police officer. He ran from the police and then the officer shot him three times. The protesters are upset because a 17-year old boy is dead. Other people in the city are asking why did he run? The city of Pittsburgh is divided, and there is a call to end the violence and police brutality. I tend to side with the police. I have a space in my heart for police officers and I really support them and their difficult positions. They have a hard job and they are always underappreciated. My head was spinning with thoughts. I watched some more of the protest on my phone, as I laid in my old bed, trying to sleep. The dogs laid with me for a while. They stayed with me until 4am then went in with my parents.
