Good afternoon, friends and neighbors!!
It was rough to go back to work today after a wonderful weekend. In case you missed anything:
- My Katy Perry-like Friday Night
award-winningRecipe for Chocolate Crack: S’mores Style
- Six Pack Sunday
I’ll admit, I spent lots of time at home this weekend, being a little homebody. That’s because the next two weekends will be spent on planes, trains, and automobiles (literally), heading to the Healthy Living Summit in Philadelphia (I fly in at 3:15!! And already have a double welcome wagon of Krissie and Ali!! Then, the next weekend, I fly BACK to Philly for my cousin’s bridal shower.
Oh yeah, and on Wednesday, August 24th, 2011, I TURN 24!!
In the meantime, I’ve got a busy week ahead of me. Lots of work, workouts, and a low-carb diet for the week that I’m trying out as I’ve been feeling fairly full and bloaty all weekend (due primarily to MANY carby snacks of fried goodies, too many Wheat Thins to count, Heath bar pancakes drenched in syrup (heavenly), a few too many cheddar biscuit samples at A Southern Season, and (of course) tacos and chips galore.
Time to cut back a little (though I’ll still enjoy my Fiber One 80 calorie cereal I just started enjoying for breakfast).
Today, when I came home for lunch, I spotted a sad, sad sight.
My poor basil plant took a tumble overnight, probably due to the Noah’s Ark-like downpour all evening…. Well, I flipped it right up, gave it some water, and I think got some good karma because then I did something I don’t think I’ve successfully done since I moved to this apartment.
Well, what happened next will be known as the Good Karma Omelet.
- 1 egg white, 1 egg base
- 1 handful of spinach, sauteed
- 1/5 of a green pepper, also sauteed
- 5 pieces of turkey pepperoni, sliced into thirds
- 1 slice of provolone cheese, melted
Slather that bad boy in Frank’s Red Hot, and you’ll taste all that good karma just filling up your belly.
For dessert, I enjoyed a fresh peach from my beau’s boss’ field!
I am sensing great things for the rest of the day. My plant is upright, my belly is full (but not with many carbs), and True Blood, like that peach, was good to the last drop.
Ha, vampire joke. Get it?
Good. For tolerating that silliness, here’s a sexy Eric and Sookie moment to enjoy.
Are you going to the Healthy Living Summit?
How did you earn some good karma today?

Sure am! I’m coming in late Thurs night and leaving eaarrrrly Sunday morning.
See you / meet you soon 😉
mm home grown basil.. I need to do that! Thanks for your comment on my pup 🙂 Have fun at HLS I am not going..maybe next year!
I’m going to HLS! Can’t wait to meet you and discuss True Blood (did I mention I’m up to date, just need to see last nights episode).
And I had no idea I was older than you (by a month), for some reason I thought you were a touch older than me. We can celebrate with Carly Bananas who just had her birthday as well!
Sorry to double comment but I’m so pumped about the triple birthday celebration that’s going to be happening (even though I’m so. flipping. old)!!
YAYYYYYY for multiple birthday celebrations!!!!!!!!!!
Your poor plant! I have had that happen before… when I lived in Maine I grew a bunch of herbs in pots on my deck… there were unfortunately a few fatalities.
Great job on that Omelette! I adore Franks… my boyfriend loves Tobasco. We fight over which one is superior. I consider this a healthy debate 😉
Hmmm I have yet to earn good karma today unless I can count doing all the dishes and cleaning the kitchen last night before bed so neither my boyfriend or I had to worry about it today.
Not going to the healthy Summit this year… hopefully next year!
Loving your blog, looking forward to reading more 🙂
I’m so excited for HLS on Friday! We’re going to have so much fun 🙂
Hmm for good karma – I think that would be getting my boss benadryl after he got stung by a wasp.. in the face… on his way to work. And hustled everyone away from him office so he could nap at his desk after the benadryl kicked in. I’m a really good employee some days haha.
I’m so jealous that you’re going to HLS. I want to soooo bad! Oh well. I love True Blood! Sadly I don’t have HBO 😦 booo
one site for you: Surfthechannel.com
Life changing, as far as True Blood watching is concerned.
I want to go to HLS SO badly. Next year! And hopefully I’ll see you there!
eric is hot…but not as hot as he used to be(points for always being naked lately, even though i feel like i have to look away almost because he’s so angelic now). 24 on the 24th–that’s your champagne birthday!!
