So you know last month when I wrote a post about being a shopgirl at heart? Well, I haven't mentioned it before, but I have been in the process of applying for a job over the past several weeks. I've exchanged numerous emails and had two 50-minute Skype interviews with two people in the company, and I found out on Tuesday evening that I was offered the position! This middle-aged mom really stepped outside of her comfort zone by even thinking of applying, and I GOT IT!!!
To back up a bit, I wasn't even looking for a job, but as I "like" this company on Facebook, and they're opening a shop in Omaha, out of curiosity I clicked on the link advertising the openings. Listen to this: "Do you make lists for fun? Are you always the organized one?" I couldn't believe it! My superpowers are listed in the JOB DESCRIPTION!!! I start the first part of March, so that gives me a little over a month to
But on to the mundane which is my life (thankfully!), and the real reason I write this blog - to keep me accountable. Yesterday was a treadmill day (ugh) but it is warmer today, and tomorrow is supposed to be just as nice. As I have a 5-miler scheduled, I'm thankful that it will be outside instead of plodding along in our basement.
I changed it up a bit for yesterday's breakfast:
|I hate runny yolks so I always break 'em|
Lunch was just Wednesday's dinner reheated, but still delicious: beef tips with peppered mushroom sauce and roasted broccoli. While I made the two to be served separately, I didn't feel like dirtying another dish.
And because I have a sweet tooth:
|White chocolate and peanut butter chips|
|Tastes much better than it looks while cooking|
|Oikos key lime yogurt, a Vitatop, and two of the veggie "sausage" links. And because it was National Peanut Butter day, I spread a tablespoon on the muffin top.|
Breakfast today was a PB bagel, grapefruit, and coffee - something you have seen so many times that I'm just not going to photograph it any more. You're welcome. But lunch was good! I stopped at Whole Foods this morning, and as it was nearing noon, a stop at the salad bar was in order. In the mix: romaine lettuce, tofu, quinoa, and radishes. I brought it home and topped it with Trader Joe's cilantro dressing. And I had a kombucha, something I haven't had for a few weeks and didn't realize how much I missed it until my first sip.
And I picked this up:
I'm going to spend some time this afternoon having a calligraphy session. I need to practice a bit as I have a wedding coming up!
We have a low-key weekend planned. The highlight will be dinner out tomorrow with some friends; I have a Groupon to a local Indian restaurant burning a hole in my pocket. (Or my iPhone?)
Anyone have any big plans? Have a great weekend regardless!
