70 Days

I will graduate in 70 days. That is 10 weeks folks. I would like to be around 180 by this day 10 weeks from now. Can it happen? Yes! Will it happen? I sure hope so!

So also besides graduating, I will be in a wedding this August. So that means a bridesmaid dress. I am not thrilled about the color or style, but they are graciously paying for it, so I can't really complain. I just need to get my butt to a bridal store here in TN so they know what size to order.


The Wine Tasting
I went, I drank, I conquered. And by conquer, I did not make a fool out of myself. So the thing lasted from 5-8 and I met my friend there at 6. The place was packed and they were not generous with their pours, thus it made it somewhat difficult to "taste" the ones I really liked. The food was somewhat disappointing and thus I ate nothing. It was a mixed crowd of Nashville wine "experts", lost frat boys, youngins like myself, and whatever other type of people you could imagine.

Was it fun? Yes

Was it worth it? Maybe. I tasted some decent wine and the money raised did go to "cancer", they never really specified what type...

Would I do it again? You betcha, as long as the kept the price under $50 and they don't start doing this type of tasting too often. (They have some really frou frou events that are pretty expensive and I don't even think I own the proper clothing to attend.)

After the wine tasting I went to a songwriters thing at a crappy hotel. The "lounge" was being remodeled. So the new lounge was a banquet room with really bad lighting. Food was limited to BBQ catered from across the street. I was starving so I had a pulled BBQ chicken sandwich and chips. Eh, it was nothing to write home about, it was actually pretty crappy now that I think about it.

So, yesterday I had cookies (I am really trying to be better folks), wine, and some bad BBQ that all really do no fit into my meal plan. Oh and the lunch I had yesterday was a box lunch so it was a sandwich, chips, and a cookie. I rarely eat sandwiches and I had two in one day. I didn't make it to the gym either....

Today I am going to the gym during lunch.
Today I am eating what I brought for lunch.

So my weekend is shaping up to be quite busy. Tonight my friends and I are going to dinner. I should be able to find something relatively points friendly on the menu. I will be having a few drinks and hopefully dancing some of it off. Tomorrow morning I will be going to the gym followed by kickball practice. Then I am going back to my bar for a dance party with the friends I hung out with last night. I am thinking 4 nights in a row at my bar is a little excessive, even for me, but hey I am trying to be social here. Sunday I am going to the gym in the morning and hanging out with my little in the afternoon. At some point during the weekend I need to clean my room and get some homework done. Next week is grad school "spring break" so I won't have classes, but I will still have to work so it really isn't a spring break.

In case you were wondering, I am fully aware of my large use of quotation marks in this post :)

I hate those days when nothing fits into my plans....At least you're so awesome at going to they gym. You look fantastic BTW....I can't even imagine what it would be like to be in the 180's...I can't wait!

Ps....I know you're a fellow black nail polish gal, so you need to try OPI - Lincoln Park after dark. It's a super dark purple, that really looks black but is super rich and pretty, and a great alternative to black all the time....
