Weekend Review!

I had this big ol fun filled Friday night planned. I had all the fixins to make some beef stew, I rented a movie, Pitch Perfect, and I had an extra large bottle of Pinot Grigio chillin in the fridge waiting for me to drink it dry. 

Then my roommate, Diana, asked if I wanted to go to this party for her boyfriends work. It was hosted by, there was a fashion show, drinks, free food, DJ's, a live band and a party bus to take you to an after party downtown. So I put my plans aside, got all dolled up and we headed out to the Women's Club in Loring Park.

Jungle Red, a salon that was a sponsor was there {and was on Tabitha's Salon Makeover!} had hair chalk that I had to try out!

It was fun to add a little something fun to my hair! 

The party was called Crush, they took pictures of some of the party goers to be voted on their website, who is most Crush worthy?

Vote for me!
I hate the picture, but I was a couple glasses of wine in and super pasty white, and it honestly looks like I'm about to pass gas. Not flattering. Oh well, it was fun!

{So, go vote for me! I'll take you out for some sushi and we'll have a slumber party at Graves 601, then we'll get some cheese and wine from Surdyk's, and go ride all the rides at MOA!}

I spent the rest of the weekend at my parents again, dog sitting. 

We laid around, falling in and out of consciousness from drinking too much wine the night before. I found myself watching Disney movies that were on TV. Miley and Trixie particularly enjoyed Lady and The Tramp.

So much dog barking! Trix is about 3/4 deaf so she just did what Miley did. She would run up to the TV and cock her head back and forth, all confused. It was darling.

I finally got around to making my beef stew.

It was absolutely delicious. The perfect meal considering the temps around these parts. 

 I woke up today and the temp was -9. Predicted 'high' for today? -4... I don't even want to know what it feels like with the wind chill. Somehow my hair froze on the .39 mile walk to the bus stop. My hair wasn't even wet it was that cold.

I had some left over almonds that I spent a ridiculous amount of money on at Whole Foods, and I was getting tired of plain ol almonds so I made some Cinnamon Roasted Almonds.

They are very tasty! A little sweet, a little salty, the perfect afternoon snack.

I'm super antsy today because I didn't work out once this weekend and with the Bachelor on tonight and having to get to the grocery store for a few items, it's not in tonight's plans.

Tomorrow is another story. This week marks the official 1/2 Marathon training for the Get in Gear 1/2, and tomorrow is spin class!

Spin, followed by a 3 mile run? I think I'm hitting the crazy town train hard!
