Rough Day (days)

I really have no room to complain. I have been getting back into the gym and working with weights (Monday-Saturday) last week and I am on track for the same this week. However, my eating has been like poo. I just can't stop eating candy, oh and the sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies I made for some friends in Afghanistan, I had a few (or a lot) of those too. If I don't get my eating in check soon clothes are not going to be fitting and that is not going to be good.

Some random tidbits:
I went to the CMA awards last night. It was ok. I guess I am just slightly jaded about the whole thing. Who would pay a minimum of $112/ticket or a maximum of $450/ticket? umm, not me. Thank god my $450 ticket was free...

I LOVE Taylor Swift. She doesn't have the greatest voice, but man can she write.

I think I was asked out via facebook by a stranger. Well, we do have a mutual friend. But I have never met the guy so he is still a stranger. At least he didn't poke me...

I know some of you have been reading the Twilight series. I am on book 4 and more than 3/4 of the way done. Wouldn't life be so much easier if we could imprint? Maybe the feeling of imprinting and true love (well what I imagine true love to be like) are the same thing or very similar?

Music Monday- Trisha Yearwood

So Friday night I joined my roommate and we attend a writer's round here in Nashville. We went to see Greg Barnhill who is her officemate (and also hooked us up with our Voodoo Fest tickets). Now, I knew he had had some pretty big cuts and was pretty successful. I think at one time I had found out some songs he had written and was pretty awestruck. So he is is on his second song and he starts talking about how this song had been on hold for Wynonona and then she ended up not recording it. Trisha ended up picking it up and felt like it was such a pivotal point in his career because the song was really more adult contemporary then Country at the time. I get jaded sometimes about my work, the music/entertainment industry, and Nashville. But all it takes to love everything about this place is one really good songwriting round. And I got it on Friday.

Here is Trisha Yearwood Performing Walkaway Joe

So yeah, I am addicted to food...

I went to Trader Joe's this morning. You know why I picked this morning? Well, it's the South and it's Church today. However, the parking lot was still packed. I braved the crowd and it was all worth it because I found STROOPWAFEL!!!! And they taste just like the ones Esther has purchased for me in the Netherlands. Now the ones TJ's had were bite size, but taste exactly the same. They are one point a piece which is awesome. Two are completely satisfying as well.

Next I met up with a friend for brunch on the east side. I completely splurge on 2 blood orange mimosas and a yummy artisan cheese plate. I probably should have stopped there but I ordered an egg scramble entree and had some of my friends ginger pancakes with lemon sauce. YUM!

No gym today. I have gone every day for the past 6 days. My body needs a rest.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!
