keep calm and give thanks

Thanksgiving in exactly one more day… so exciting! I have a few recipes I’ll be making this week (and they all incorporate my favorite fall foods); sweet potato casserole, pumpkin trifle and the cranberry almond quinoa. For my sanity, I’m just gonna give in to the fact that I will be stuffing my face with naughty yummy foods this entire week; I have friendsgiving event today (Wednesday), thanksgiving with the fam on Thursday, date night with Dave on Friday, and high school reunion on Saturday. This just means I’ll have to be on my A-game for all of December {well, up until christmas}.

wicked smaht
Last week I had to go to NY for training. On my way there, we had to wait about 20 minutes on the runway due to some inexplicable air “traffic” issues. Why in the world there’s traffic in the air is beyond me but we did get a gorgeous skyline view of Boston. I’m a huge city girl and although I don’t live and breathe the city life I like that I’m so close to it. I’m not in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of being in the city but I live close enough that I can still enjoy all it has to offer. I don’t have to contemplate whether or not its worth heading into the city because it’s literally 10 minutes away!
Boston
I heart you Boston.

kenne cooks a special dinner
If there’s one thing you should know about the bestie Kenne is that she loves shrimp. She’s semi obsessed with it, there’s probably 3 bags of shrimp in the freezer at this very moment and they’re are all hers. She cooks with if often and during my bikini prep I witness and smelled [#nocaloriesinsmelling #dontjudgeme] her delicious cooking. She promised me (or more like I demanded) that she make it for me after the competition was over. This is what she made for me, coconut shrimp and tilapia with wild/brown rice. It came out so good! Now I just need to have her cook for me again… do I need to do another competition? cause I’ll do it! ok, I’m kidding… well maybe.

instant transformation
How about that for a transformation? Sometimes even I amaze myself… from work to gym clothes in a jiffy. Sneakers are on and hair is pulled up, it’s time to get swole! ok, but seriously now that I’m working from home I don’t have to worry about carrying a gym bag so this doesn’t happen as often. There were so many times I forgot to bring a hair tie, or my socks, or even worse my sports bra!
