I’ve got some goodies for you today, folks! The internet was killin’ it this week.
1) Running costumes
I’m cruisin’ into my 5K race tomorrow fresh off a dodgeball high from our game last night. I caught not one, but TWO balls thrown by one of the biggest baddest dudes in the league last night and, along with a couple of other players, delivered us our first victory of the new season! Nicki and I are going to Target tonight to figure out our outfits for the Veggie Chase…I am totally loving the ideas on this site, though a lot of them don’t exactly look super conducive to running quickly…
I woke up this morning to this link on Facebook shared by one of my childhood neighbors. So many memories of Friday nights spent watching TGIF together and dreaming about a Cory and Topanga relationship of our own… SIGH. I couldn’t choose between these two screenshots. The first is from the best episode ever (Halloween episode with South Park references galore, anyone?), and the second is just so cute and so unrealistic. “I can never really get mad at you”…really? Really? Never?
3) Braided Lemon Bread by smitten kitchen
Easter is Sunday, and we’re having two meals – I’m making brunch here in Sacramento for us and my parents in the morning, and then we’re driving to Napa for early dinner with T-Man’s family. I’m going to make my dad’s famous Chile Egg Puff and some kind of fruit salad…I’m trying to keep it light, but wanted to make a 3rd dish involving lemons because T-Man brought me a whole bunch from his coworker’s tree. I’m hoping if I make the lemon curd the night before, I’ll have enough time to make this bread on Sunday morning! It just sounds tooooo good.
4) Having only one team left in the tournament…but it being the team that matters!
You guys, my bracket majorly failed this year. I knew I was being pretty risky by choosing a lot of upsets…but the payoff would have been high! See, my pool rewards a LOT more points depending on the rank of the team…the lower their rank, the more points you get if they win. Unfortunately, I picked North Carolina and New Mexico instead of…La Salle and Florida Gulf Coast?! Who could have predicted those upsets? Thankfully I still may be in luck if Michigan State wins! I’m still in it….for now!
5) 4 steps to pairing colors and patterns by nutritionella
I love this easy guide to decorating your home/apartment! My roomie and I haven’t done much in the decorating department, since we accepted a lot of mismatching hand-me-downs from our parents when we moved in. We will either be renewing our lease in a month or finding a new place…I think either outcome will call for some spring cleaning and decorating! Speaking of spring cleaning, I have had some serious clutter anxiety lately. My desk at work, T-Man’s fridge, and our living room were victim to my anxiety-induced organizing/cleaning sprees this week…I’ve never had this urge before, but suddenly I can’t stand clutter! Might as well ride the train while it’s here…I’m sure in a month I’ll be back to preferring what I like to call my organized chaos. 🙂
6) Skinny blueberry lemon poppyseed muffins!
Last weekend, I set out to make a muffin with as close to 100 calories as possible…and I did it! I’ll be posting the recipe for these low cal, super low fat muffins sometime next week 🙂 I’ve enjoyed them for breakfast with my yogurt or oatmeal every morning this week!
Have a great Easter weekend!
What are your plans? Do you do Easter brunch or Easter dinner?
