Part of My Catch-Up

Good evening bloggy friends :)  Anyone else attempting Jenna's Old Fashioned Banana Pudding and rocking out to BET in the background?  No?  Just me?  Ok then.  Remember yesterday when I said I had a whole other post planned out?  I decided now is time for that post :)

First things first.  I had a great weekend!  I did a lot of walking/running with this girl.

I went to a park in town with my good friend Jenny and walked her two dogs.  It was beautiful, we walked a trail through the woods around a lake.  I never even knew the park was there, and it's literally maybe 3 miles from my apartment.  The weather has been so nice lately, 60's and 70's so there was no crazy sweating.  It was just a gorgeous day.

I completed the weekend making a homemade pizza, vegetarian chili, and cornbread.  The weather has make me want chili and now I have enough to last all week!  No pics this time around, but I will post the recipe next time I make it.

Jay and I are still broken up, and still living together.  It's getting less awful as we seem to have an unspoken pact to try to get along.  He still pisses me off, but until we can find other living arrangements I guess this is how it has to be.  I have the most amazing friends to help me through all this crap though.  I got this adorable care package in the mail from my high school friend Juliana.

Isn't she adorable?  I'm not gonna lie, I shed a little tear when I opened it.  It was super thoughtful and made my day.  (There was also a pack of M&M's in there.  I don't, um, know where those got to..)  I have to say that I have the best group of girlfriends that get me through anything and everything. 

There may be a little more to say since I've been gone for so long... I've eaten lots of good stuff, had a blogger come visit, and just gone through everyday life.  But I've been up and at 'em since 7 this morning so I think I'm going to go snuggle in my bed and watch TV.  I haven't stopped ALL DAY.  I will see you all tomorrow with my banana pudding review from coworkers :)

One more thing:  Those two beautiful ladies I spoke about in this post have each started a blog.  Jenny's is about life with her 24-going-on-7 year old husband and is hilarious.  Juliana's is about a little of this and a little of that, living in NYC and being fabulous :)  AND, my lil bro started one as well about politics.  He can be serious, but I see it taking some humorous turns.  Looks like I've been inspirational.  I'll go ahead and brush my shoulder off.. go check them out and give some love as they are all new to this blogging thing and deserve attention!  Have a great night peeps :)

Wow! That spot looks gorgeous! Nice that it's three miles from your house. What a great destination to travel to! I wish I was rich so I could visit....
