Chop, chop!

Happy Monday, everyone!!

How was your weekend? Mine flew by so quickly!

I drove home early Saturday morning to go to the eye doctor and get my hair done. On the way, I made a quick stop at Titus Bakery and got a pumpkin spice cake doughnut and a coffee. That bakery was hopping at 7:15 a.m. The line was nearly out the door! The Indy A-List recently awarded Titus Bakery as the number 1 bakery in the Indy-area. I can definitely see why!

I love my hair dresser back home, so it’s a good thing Indianapolis isn’t too far away. I tried someone different the last time I got my hair cut, so my hair was in bad shape. If you have very thick, unruly hair, I’m sure you can relate! Getting rid of the bulk is not the same as adding a lot of layers!

Anyway, my hair needed a lot of help, and we ended cutting off about four inches. Bye longer hair, and hello, lob!

So far, I really like it! I just need to figure out all the different ways I can style it.

Go Colts!

On Sunday, I went to the Colts game with my family and friends.

I love going to Colts games! I really enjoy the fact that the roof can be opened and closed. Some people complain and say that isn’t real football, I say hooray for climate-controlled stadiums! It’s so nice to be able to go to a football game in the winter and not worry about freezing.

After we entered the stadium, there was a game set up to kick a “field goal” and get a pair of sunglasses. Well, my lovely boot has made a comeback, so I just grabbed a pair of sunglasses. Who doesn’t want a free spare pair?

The Colts played a great game, and we ended up leaving with about 8 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. It’s always fun to go to a game when your team is winning! The Illini seem to have a huge problem with that (winning) this season. Thankfully, the Colts don’t!

Thank you for reading! :)

Questions of the Day:

  • If you have a lob (long bob!), what is your favorite way to style it?
  • What was your favorite thing you did over the weekend?

High Five for Friday!

It’s Friday! Friday! Gotta get down on Friday!

If you forgot about that song, I’m sorry if it’s now stuck in your head for the rest of the day! Actually, I’m not. That song is one of my guilty pleasures! I once made up a parody called “Finals.” You can ask my old college roommates! haha

1. My Parents Anniversary

Happy, happy 27th anniversary to my parents! They have been in NYC for the past few days celebrating. Did anyone watch the David Letterman Show last night?! If so, you probably caught a glimpse of these lovebirds. They were sitting in the front row!

2. The Weather

Hello, gorgeous weather! It has been beautiful in Indianapolis this past week. The mornings are slightly cool, and I turn on my seat warmer and steering wheel warmer. But, the afternoon heats up. I drive home from work with my windows down. Stay like this forever, please!

3. This soup

Mmmmm….While I was home over the weekend, my mom and I made minestrone soup from The Runner’s World Cookbook. It was delicious! I haven’t tried anything else from the cookbook, but if it’s anywhere close to being as good as the soup, I will be pleased.

4. The Monon Community Center

I went here to swim the other day (which I didn’t end up swimming, but you know…) and fell in love with the beautiful scenery and all of the fun activities. If you aren’t a member, you can still walk on the indoor track for free which will be awesome during the winter when it is freezing or snowing!

5. Almost Bootless

My time is coming to an end with my Aircast! Yesterday, I went the day without wearing it and didn’t experience any pain. I go back to the doctor next Wednesday, and hopefully I will be cleared for some light cardio. I even will take the stationary bike as an option. Progress!!

Questions of the Day:

  • What are you looking forward to doing this weekend?
  • What is your favorite type of cardio?
