Whew, this has been a busy day and I’m gearing up for the rest of the week to be the same way. So much going on – but all good stuff!
I subbed a BodyPump class after work and then booked it over to Y2 to squeeze in a quick ashtanga practice. So grateful that they allowed me to roll into class 30 minutes late and still get through the full series. It was needed.
I made a quick (sweaty) stop in the grocery after yoga to pick up dinner supplies.
I pounded out chicken breasts and dredged them in flour, egg wash with Dijon mustard and bread crumbs with fresh herbs and parmesan. I sauteed the chicken with a little olive oil and then sliced and served it over a salad. I made honey mustard for my salad by whisking together plain nonfat Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard and honey. We didn’t sit down to eat until 9:45. 😳 I have GOT to get better about this.
After we finished dinner dishes Brandon announced he was making a brownie sundae. I said that I would pass but he was determined to bring me down with him. Admittedly, it was not hard to get me to cave.
Moving along to the good tunes portion of this post. Brandon and I really enjoy music and I am so lucky that he loves finding new bands and then burns their CDs and leaves them in my car. This works out perfectly for me because I just never have time to download new music.
The point of this…I am giving away three CDs that I’m digging right now. I just have to convince Brandon to burn them for me! 🙂
- The Whigs – Mission Control. We discovered this band when we were in college at the University of Georgia in Athens (Go Dawgs!). I LOVE these guys and their new album is awesome. We’re SO excited to see them this Friday – they’re opening for Kings of Leon and Black Keys. They have come a long way from playing frat houses and dive bars! Can’t wait.
- Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More. This is my favorite recent find. I can’t stop listening to this British band’s latest album and I’m digging their hybrid bluegrass/folk/indie sound.
- Brendan James – Brendan James. I learned about this singer/songwriter in my yoga classes at Y2 so when I hear these songs I feel like I need to get my yoga groove on ;). Brendan just released a new album and it’s doing great on iTunes (his album was beating Kesha on the pop charts yesterday – we can all get behind that!). Check it out!
Leave a comment and let me know why you need some new tunes in your life. I’ll pick three winners at random and send you the CDs. These are three very different artists but I think you’ll enjoy them!
And go…you have until midnight on Thursday (9/9) to enter.
