Hump Day

Why is Wednesday called hump day? Anyone?? I think there's some saying about getting over the hump but I don't know. I've never been very good with sayings. The one I'll never live down is the whole fat lady singing thing. I made the comment as a teenager how I've never seen a fat lady singing at the end of anything so I don't get the saying. My family thought this was hilarious & labeled it a blond moment. I could never make them understand that I KNEW it was a saying but what I was trying to say was that it didn't make any sense because THERE ISN'T A FAT LADY SINGING AT THE END OF ANYTHING. Stuff like that just doesn't make sense to me. I guess maybe I'm too literal? Anyway, I'm glad it's Wed. & the work day is more than half over. YAY!

We've had a delicious meal the last 2 nights.
Sunday night Dean seasoned a roast & I put it in the crock pot Monday morning before I left for work. How about that teamwork?? It was good but not as good as the last roast which was one of the best roast ever cooked. I made quinoa & I put a bag of seasoning blend in when I cooked it & we had frozen green beans. I've recently decided that I'm a fan of frozen veggies. They're so good. It's like they're fresh. We had this Monday night & Tuesday night & yes we will be having it again tonight because this roast obviously came off of a large cow. Dean's variation of the meal last night was rice instead of quinoa. He can only go without rice for so long. I also made us each a small salad so we had lots of veggies last night.
This is the news of the day in Baton Rouge. Community Coffee is FINALLY making K-cups. This was a huge deal on Facebook. It's not a big deal to me because I started my coffee drinking with Starbucks but Community is a local company that everyone LOVES. People bring their Community with them when they travel. Kind of like how the New Orlenians feel about Chicory. My only experience with Community was a few weeks ago when I stopped after Race for the Cure for a Guilt Free Turtle Latte. It was really good so I guess I'll try out some CC's K cups.

Friday I had another appointment with the eye doctor. Red eyes was the issue. She had changed the solution I use but that didn't done anything. She said my eyes look good & that it must be allergies. Go figure. After my appointment I went to Ulta. I had a coupon for a free gift because of the points I earned the last quarter & I needed some hair stuff.
No, I didn't need nail polish. This one is OPI's My Address Is Hollywood. I did my toes & i really like it. I was planning to buy a bottle of Butter London polish because it was on sale for $9 & it's normally $15 so I was going to try it. Note to Ulta Marketing or whoever is in charge of setting up the displays - putting nail polish by the perfume where it normally isn't is not a good strategy. Especially, when there's a small display when you walk in the front door. This made me think that was all that was left. I looked by the other polish & there wasn't any. I didn't bother to ask because I've done that before only to be told "everything we have is out". Later when I talked to Wendy she told me where the rest of it was. BY THE PERFUME. She'd been by there earlier Friday. I decided it was better that I didn't find it. I'm sure I would've loved it & really, who needs $15 nail polish?? Not me. Also, fellow Ulta shoppers, coupons can no longer be used on OPI. sigh. There were signs all over that store that said "Effective March 13th OPI is an exclusion & coupons may not be used". So annoying. Seriously, they're making it very easy for me to just shop at Amazon. Not to mention every time I go in there it looks like their was a raid on OPI polish. I just can't imagine that many people happen to be in a nail polish frenzy on the days I choose to shop. I think they're not restocking. On to my free gift. I was a level 4 this quarter & there was a list of stuff I could choose from. I was interested in 4 of the items on the list & they didn't have any of them. sigh. That's when I found this.
It's Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm. The color is Fresh Plum. Not my first choice. This was the ONLY tube of this stuff in the store. Well, unless it was over by the perfume. I was tired of being in the store looking for stuff they didn't have so I just took it, paid & left. I LOVE IT!! The color isn't bad. Basically, it's tinted lip balm. Not as glossy as gloss but balmier than lipstick. Does that make sense? Next time I'm at Walmart or somewhere else that I despise I'm going to see if they have one of the other colors.

This weeks workouts so far:
Sunday - 4 mi. run
Monday - Weights & squats & push ups (I just did my own thing)
Tuesday - Yoglates
Wednesday - 3 mi. run this morning & I'll do weights when I get home.

I'm going to reward myself for my 2 workouts today with a vanilla protein smoothie. HA! I'm going to make it with the vanilla almond milk & see how I like it. I'll report back.



  1. I do most of my shopping online and THAT is why! Sephora, Ulta, etc usually have lots more in stock online. :) But you can't try out colors and all before you buy. Maybe that is a good thing and keeps me from buying everything..... YUM. Smoothie sounds good!

  2. I know what you mean about all those sayings, Traci. I had a hard time understanding slang language having grown up in the Philippines. My hubby finally bought me a slang book but he used to laugh at me taking words literally.....Christine
