For lunch today, I went with some co-workers to a restaurant called "The Ram." It is one of those restaurants that I don't go to with my family because DS can't eat anything there, DD won't eat anything there and DH isn't interested. Whatever.
As I was reading the menu, I saw that they had a burger called "The Peanut Butter Burger." Here is the description.
Peanute butter, cheddar, hickory smoked bacon, sliced tomato, lettuce and mayo 9.99
BTW...they spelled peanut with the extra "e" on their website. I just copied and pasted!
Okay, so I like peanut butter. I really like peanut butter. And I'm a fan of the cheddar and the bacon and the tomato and the lettuce. Not so much on the mayo. But...put it all together? I'm not sure about that! I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with monterey jack cheese, no sauce, and fries. (Fries were VERY salty so I only ate a few). I was satisfied and pleased and pretty darn proud of myself for ordering a fairly healthy meal.
But now I want to try that PB Burger! Dang it! It is on my mind and it is haunting my taste buds and it is luring me back to that restaurant. Gosh darn it!! Maybe I can order a sampler? Or make my own?

I have a magazine (Woman's World) that I read. It is a weekly periodical and every week they have new ways to keep your hair shiny or your nails perfectly manicured or whatever. (BTW...I'm about six months behind, so this was a June issue)
The week that I'm reading has the headline "Kitchen Cures for Gorgeous Skin." Now, I know what they mean. They are going to give us great hints on using items that we already have in our kitchens to make our skin gorgeous.
But that's not what it says. It says they are going to *cure* our gorgeous skin with stuff from the kitchen. I don't have gorgeous skin, so I don't need to cure it. But if I did...I still wouldn't want to cure it! LOL!
Okay...done with semantics and whatever else this is called. Just wondering if anyone else sees stuff like this and wonders if magazines hire proof readers any more.

I have decided that I need to restart my lifting routine. Lifting upper body, for me, is easy. By that, I mean that I know lots of different exercises for each muscle group. I can vary the routine fairly easily using free weights, machines or a combination. No problem!
However, lower body is another story. I won't use the inner/outer thigh machine. Too likely to cause an injury. The leg press is the wrong exercise for my body type (my booty is the size it needs to be, thank you!). I've done lunges, both standing and walking, and I'm currently doing squats. I also do calf raises. That's it. Not very much variety. And because of that, I get bored with my lower body routine very quickly.
Does anyone have any a ideas? I do my workout at a gym, so there are machines, weights, resistance bands, etc. available. However, no PC or video player so videos aren't an option. I think I will add some plyometrics, but would like ideas there as well. I'm open for suggestions. Flood me!

As many of you already know, I celebrated my birthday on January 6th. The twelfth day of Christmas. My 21st anniversary of my 21st birthday. Overall, a very good day. However, it was a day of unexpected texts.
First, my older brother wished me a happy birthday by commenting on how old I was. Please note, I did say *older* brother. Dork. Oh...did I mention that he sent me that text on January 5th? The eleventh day of Christmas. Silly brother! LOL!
Thursday morning, my workout partner sent me a HB text at our normal workout time (4:30 am). Luckily, I slept through that. It was a rest day for both of us. My family, on the other hand, called me on the way to work. I told them all goodbye before I left for work. They were all up and getting ready for the day. They just spaced it. Since the same thing happened last year, I've decided that it is. New family tradition...to call me to wish me HB instead of doing it in person! LOL!
After I got to work, one of my coworkers texted/paged me with HB wishes. Really wasn't expecting that from him (yeah, a guy remembered my b-day! And he's cute! LOL,). The I got fairly regular good wishes throughout the day. The surprise texts, though, were the ones from my daughter's friends. Totally didn't expect that! Even my dad texted me! Technology rocks!
I must say that I had a pretty darn good day! Can I do it again tomorrow?

I have a cold or a sinus something going on. It's not too bad as long as I don't change elevation. Or lay down. Or try to breathe. Actually, while I'm awake and moving around, I really feel fine. However, laying down last night proved to be a challenge!
I'm sure my DH asked me to roll over multiple times to try to stop my snoring. Thank goodness he used that method instead of a pillow! LOL! Finally, around four this morning, I got up to fine some extra pillows. I put those behind me and slept the rest of the night sitting up. I will start sleeping tonight sitting up since I go back to work tomorrow. I need my beauty sleep! LOL!
On a different but related note, I'm taking a big ol' bag o'stuff to work with me tomorrow. I have replenishment for my Fiber One bars so I have snax for the week. I'm taking my day-by-day calendar, the rest of the unsalted peanuts, some chocolate peeps, the rest of a bag of crullers and some miscellaneous candy. I'll be loaded down going in! But it won't be loading down my bum or belly!
