Ah, I am so excited that it’s Friday. This week has been a little crazy for me work-wise. I feel like I’ve been saying that on a lot of Friday’s lately, but it is true. My organization has eight championships going on right now so it is BUSY.
Usually I like to paparazzi around the local championships (if you’ve read my blog for a while you may remember me hitting up our Alpine Skiing, Tennis, Rugby, and Baseball championships earlier this year), but right now I had too much going on in the office to make it out.
I also help the organizers do their websites, social media pages, and deal with the media, so it’s a lot of stuff going on all at once. This week I was better off in the office. I was slightly sad because I really enjoy getting out and watching the games, but our football championship is next week and I’ll be there for about 13 hours, so I’m sure that will make up for it. Maybe Dan Marino or Jim Kelly will show up?
Brian will be getting cropped out of some photos, that is for sure.
Friday’s used to mean lunchtime yoga in my office, but we are taking a break from that and have switched it up lately to more of a yummy event.
The Cookie Club!
I am loving the cookie club. I had to miss it last week because I was away at meetings, but I was back today in full cookie-eating force.
Today’s cookie club was hosted by Ontario Volleyball, and Laura (who is in the picture above with her cookies), made two seriously awesome kinds of cookies.
Around 2pm I got this email:
Um, pistachio cream cheese sugar cookies and double chocolate cranberry cookies? Yeah, I was up in suite 304 within seconds ready to get my hands on those babies.
I am pretty sure Laura just needs to move into my house and be my full-time cookie baker (please Laura?). I have to get the recipes from her because I could not get enough of those double chocolate cranberry cookies. I mentioned the other day that I am loving hot chocolate at the moment, and those cookies tasted like hot chocolate in cookie form! So chocolately and delicious. One of the best cookies I have ever tasted, no lie.
It was a great way to break up my day, and I loved socializing with everyone for a bit.
The weather was ridiculously gorgeous today, and I had a great 5k run outside after work. It was 15 degrees and sunny, and I was so grateful to not be on the treadmill that I made a point to enjoy every second of it. It was starting to get dark at the end of my run, but it was still warm enough for shorts and a T-shirt! I was a happy camper.
After a seriously easy and delicious veggie frittata dinner (I trolled my own recipes page when deciding what to make tonight), I am now ready to leisure for the eve. Here is my plan:
I always think it’s funny when they ask me at the liquor store what type of meal I am pairing my wine with (this happened tonight). Um, good question. Who knows? Maybe some chips later? We’ll see how the night goes…
Have a good one!
