Return of the Crazy Bag Lady

Still feeling the glow from yesterday’s amazing Easter dinner! :mrgreen:

Someone asked recently (and I apologize for not answering in the comments – I forgot!) – I think it was Learn 2 Play – if I was still crazy bag lady (click). Actually, lately I’ve been able to downsize my stuff a bit,


but today…it was the return of the crazy bag lady!!!


Probably because I had ALL THIS in one of the bags! πŸ˜†

Seriously, my shoulders were not happy, though.


For Starbucks Monday I got a tall vanilla soy latte. So yum!


The funny thing about all the things I brought to work today is that I didn’t eat much of the food I packed. Having recently suffered from a food-poisoning-like experience…one gets skittish when food is a wee bit old. So, I opted to get some vegan/GF chili out. I also grabbed a gatorade because I’m wondering if my electrolytes are low from last week’s lack of food/drink intake. I was feeling a little dizzy today.

Kashi crackers with a bit of hummus leftover from hubby’s beer-brewing party.


I attempted to microwave-steam some broccoli with a ceramic bowl and a paper towel. It didn’t work. Next time I will use a plate to top my bowl. The broccoli got a little nuked. πŸ˜†


I also had a Blueberry Almond bar and some Ginger tea.


Yogi tea quote of the day: “Every heartbeat creates a miracle.”


I tried to eat the biggest orange ever! I couldn’t quite finish the last 2 slices.

Zumba fuel was an Odwalla Superfood bar.

Then, I had about 1 1/2 fabulous hours of ZUMBA!!! I was feeling a bit off but pushed through and had an awesome work out! :)



Then, we had a birthday dinner for Kat at a local Mexican restaurant, complete with sangrias and margaritas. Kicking myself right now for not getting any PEOPLE photos! Doh!


Table-side-made guac.


Check out Megan’s amazing dinner. I want to get this next time!!!


I split some chicken enchiladas with Alex. Thank goodness, too…this was HALF! I couldn’t even finish half of this!


I did, however, save room for cupcakes. You guys know me! πŸ˜‰


Megan and I selected similarly decorated cupcakes. She said they were “boy and girl” cupcakes. heehee



Happy Birthday Kat!!!!!!!!!!!!

I came home just in time to practice some zumba songs (I know…probably not the best idea after Mexican) and watch the end of the Duke Butler game. While I’m normally a big fan of the “underdog” and I think the Butler team played great, I have to cheer for hubby’s fave team – DUKE!

Congrats to Duke on winning the National Championship tonight!

Who’s your favorite (or your SO’s favorite) basketball team (can be a college/pro/any type)?

    i might be really un-American in this, but i don’t really like basketball (GASP!) my dad used to force me to play it and i just never loved it, so now i try to stay away if possible! although i will say i was going for the Nuggets last year during the play-offs :)

    I am also a total bag lady. I’m also a cat lady. It is a very bad combination in a single lady. :)

    And, I grew up a tarheel fan (my mom is an alum)…but went to Duke. So I kinda have to cheer for them now.

    Lol. I’m a bag lady too, no worries.

    Have you seen epiphanie bags? They’re stylish camera bags (for DSLRS). So you can use it as a camera bag/purse and with the compartments prob fit your lunch in there too, esp if you’re not toting a bunch of lenses :)

    Too funny! πŸ˜€

    Given how much fresh food you take to work, it’s no surprise you need an extra bag! But the benefits of bringing your own healthy foods (looking/feeling great and saving money) totally makes up for the shoulder strain.

    And staring at your cupcake photos at 9:30 at night is very bad for my willpower.

    Looks like a great birthday celebration!

    I use another inverted bowl on top of the first bowl when I steam veggies in the microwave – works great.
