7th Heaven

What. a. day.

I can’t believe I get to be one of the 6 Nature’s Pride Bread Ambassadors at the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival! I was so shocked when I got the email the other day, and it was extremely hard to not say anything  about it until it came out today! Thank you for all the congrats and notes and comments. I can’t wait to meet the other bloggers!

I am so excited and honored, but slightly terrified? I mean…I have to cook for hundred of foodies who make meals I wouldn’t even dare to try! I think it will be a great time and an amazing experience – I just did not expect to win, so I am still adjusting to the idea that I’ll be in San Francisco in 2 weeks.

In between work and all this craziness, I had some TJ’s nuts over raspberries mix for a snack.


As soon as I finished work at 5, I dusted the house, cleaned the kitchen counter tops, and headed out for a 7 mile run. My longest ever.

The good thing? I did it! I can’t believe it…that is the farthest I’ve ever run, and I’m very proud and excited to hit that milestone.

The bad thing? It was not a good run. My right leg was really tight the entire time, and I ended up having a side stitch for most of the run. It went away a few times and gave me a little relief, but it wasn’t that great of a run. At least the weather was beautiful and I finished anyways!

I came home, showered, and heated up some leftovers.



I had some mac’n’cheese from last night and some broccoli.

It was good, but I’m already hungry again, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be having some popcorn soon.


Football tonight! Leave your pick in the comments!

Florida State vs. UNC – nice ACC matchup – game is on at 8 pm eastern, ESPN.


The Office should also be awesome tonight – the commercials have been good for this episode.

I’ve got to clean the bathroom, finish packing my bag, and change my purse.
