Last night was Halloween, one of the holidays my father always listed as a 'don't go out on day'. As I age I guess I will have to give it to him...it is a smart idea to stay inside and out of trouble on certain holidays...now...tell that to my 18-21 year old self and I would have probably sneered or rolled my eyes at the idea of not being able to go out a party with my friends (truth be told). That night I had a rockin' evening: quinoa and chicken for dinner - quiet possibly the blandest meal on the planet because I didn't want to go to the store and take the chance of losing my parking spot at home - and endless episodes of Prison Break. Have I mentioned I think that Dominic Purcell is a total babe? Yewww!
I have been running a bunch and pedaling a little. I actually ran a sub 6:45 mile the other day. Pretty good for these short legs! I see a lot of my superiors and friends unable to balance work and 'play' or exercise in their life. I have made it a goal of mine to run or bike everyday after work. Okay....so I have been saving riding for the weekends because I can't stand only going out for a short 10 mile loop. Pointless...
Last Friday Spence and I went to see one of our favorite hip hop artists perform. It was unbelievable - it was hella dope! I am so happy that I was able to see Mackelmore live - seriously, if I could see him play at least once a month then I would be pretty happy...maybe I need to move to Seattle? ha! Did I mention I think Ben Haggerty is a total babe too? Welp, I just did. I would share the videos that I took while I was there, but, every single concert I go to I just get WAY to excited and cannot seem to hold my phone still enough to produce a video where people won't get seasick when they watch it again. Also, I realize how wicked tone deaf I really am. Yikes. It looks like I will never make the charts like Adele - Bummercitytown. At one point I decided that I was going to go down and try to squeeze my way to the front so that maybe I could a closer glimpse of Macklemore and a potential hi-five. Well, that plan back fired once I got into the front crowd and was being smooshed by sweaty 19 year old boys - you would have thought that they would have let a girl through...nope. Oh well, someday I will get that hi-five...
Other than that life has been pretty steady here in good ole' Southern Cali-forn-i-a. I am glad to report that my family is all safe and sound on the east coast - as well as all of my friends. Sandy, you had me on my toes for a little bit. I don't like being in suspense for days at a time, it makes me grumpy and normally I get a killer headache. Thanks, but, no thanks!
Well - here are some Ansel iPhones:
|I made some cupcakes last week. I think they were a hit? Vanilla spice cake with pumpkin frosting and graham cracker crust with dark chocolate on the bottom.|
|Spance and I at Macklemore|
|Mimosa's with pals.|
|I get to wear these bad boys once a year. Halloween edition Nike's. Yes, those are little bats.|
|Lazy eyed Syd.|
