The End of a Long Day

I would write a real blog post for you tonight but I worked from 6 a.m.-8:30 p.m. today and I’m pretty done. Things are a little crazy right now but as my friend Andre reminded me, “you are living your dream.” It’s not like this all the time but it’s necessary right now. Things ebb and flow with work and you just have to roll with it. At the end of the day I’m so happy that I get to spend my days doing something that doesn’t even feel like “work.”

I just inhaled this plate of food along with a large glass of wine. Steamed cabbage, broccoli, pot roast and mashed potatoes. I walked into Whole Foods tonight with a huge red meat craving. I needed comfort food (and wine!!!) after a long day.

Since I don’t have much for you to read…here are a few things for you to check out instead.

I am typically not a huge Pink fan but I am so in love with her new song, Just Give Me a Reason. I love the duet with Fun’s Nate Ruess.


Google Reader is closing. I don’t know what to do! I have read blogs through my Google Reader for years and years. Katy Widrick wrote a post about her favorite alternatives, as did Mashable.


Brittany just returned from a fabulous sailing vacation in the British Virgin Islands. Read all about her experience in her latest blog post. Gah, I freaking love the Virgin Islands.

CrossFit Open workout 13.2 has been announced! I’ll be doing the workout Friday or Saturday so stay tuned for details. Oh, and I’m writing the Metro CrossFit daily blog right now so check it out if you want to follow our programming and updates.

I participated in 5 Questions for 8 Charlotte-Area Bloggers over on Pure & Simple Organizing. Check it out for my thoughts on a lot of blogging related topic. There are some other great bloggers featured as well!

Off to face plant into bed.

    Crazy long days can take a lot out of you, but if you are doing what you love then they are OK every once in a while 🙂 Hope you get your rest needed!!

    Wow, that is a long day. But you are so so right – it doesn’t feel like work when you are doing something you enjoy and are passionate about. I say that all of the time. I think I may need to hit up Whole Foods today for lunch! My wallet won’t be thrilled but my stomach will enjoy it.

    My new favorite song!!! And I just love the video.

    Sometimes wine is just what the doctor ordered… or what the long day ordered. 🙂 I’m off to go read Brittany’s post, though I’m pretty sure it’s only going to make me jealous!
