What can I say...

It's the weekend.  And it appears to be kind of a boring one, as always.  Yesterday, I said goodbye to my fab coworker and friend Becky, who is leaving with her husband this week for China to bring back their second child, a baby boy!  I am so excited for her, and I cannot wait to meet little Trey, their new addition.  

After that...went home, had a killer workout thanks to Jillian Michaels and her 30 Day Shred (seriously, though, she's kind of a bitch, right?  I've never watched the Biggest Loser, but...yeah, I can see how people are scared into losing weight with her!).  Matt came home from a run while I was mid-workout, which was a little embarrassing.  Nobody likes being caught in the middle of a fierce DVD workout.

Last night...we went to Borders, where I am currently reading a book in installments (yes, in the store) to avoid actually buying it.  Sad that I cannot actually remember the title of the book, but merely the location in Borders.  Whatever it is, it's by the same girl who wrote The Devil Wears Prada and I am enjoying it thoroughly.

Today....woke up and went to the winter farmer's market.  It was...not very exciting, as most things are grown in the summer.  I managed to pick up some onions, sweet potatoes, a pound of organic, grass-fed ground beef, and some cheese.  Delish!  After that...a pricey trip to Kroger, and then I went to get my hair cut/colored.  

Fact:  I love getting my hair done.  I feel like I'm being pampered.  So, it was fun.  My hair lady is a lovely 22 year old mother of two.  She always makes me feel old by talking about all the fun stuff she's doing, all the clubs and bars and parties and friends and everything else.  She also has a striking resemblance to Natalie Portman, when she had her hair cut super-short.  Anyway, that was fun, but I felt like I had aged 5 additional years thinking about how we so rarely go out and do anything.  Sigh.

So, now it's Saturday night.  Dinner is currently roasting in the oven (orange marmalade-glazed turkey and sweet potatoes!) and, through some sort of Blockbuster snafu, we currently have five movies to choose from for this evening.  Not super exciting, right?  Oh well.

Tomorrow may be perhaps more exciting?  I have another date with Jillian Michaels, and in the evening Matt and I are driving up to Greencastle to meet my granddad for dinner.  He is flying into Indy tomorrow and then doing some work in Greencastle.  So, that should be fun!  Also, tomorrow is my grandma's birthday.  Happy birthday, Grandma!
