History is Happening

I’ve been contemplating for a while if I was going to talk about the election on my blog. I try and keep things light and talk about health, fitness, food, my dog, you know, easy topics. Mainly because I feel that my religious and political beliefs are private. It’s no one’s business what I believe or don’t or why.

But after a historic week at the DNC, I needed to get my thoughts out.

When I was a girl, my parents always told me that when I grew up I could be anything I wanted, even President. But really, could I? History showed me a long line of male leaders. I vaguely remember Mondale / Ferraro in ’84, but even as a little kid, my perception was that it was a joke. A woman running for Vice President? You have to be kidding. The don’t stand a chance, and they didn’t. A woman President was a theory, something intangible, a pipe dream. Sure it “could” happen, but, would it?

As a kid, I was called “bossy” (and I still am). Don’t be so bossy, stop telling others what to do, don’t try and manage everyone. I could go on, but you get the picture. Girls aren’t supposed to take control, they aren’t supposed to be “in charge”. You’re told you can do anything you want and be anyone you want, as long as you don’t push too hard. As long as you stay lady-like and likable, you can be successful. Not as successful as a man, but that's good enough.

As an adult in a male-centric field (Sales) and a male dominated industry, I’ve been told to “not be so direct”. Right? I’ve been in Sales my entire career and I shouldn’t be “direct”. Several times I’ve been given feedback that would never be given to my male counterparts. Women in business fight every day to push against the glass ceiling. Women are paid less for the same job, we’re reprimanded for behaviors that are applauded when they come from a man. These are the facts. They’re the truths that I have experienced, as have thousands of other women just like me.

Last night a night a huge crack was put in that glass ceiling. On Wednesday I watched as the DNC broadcast pictures of every President, stopping at the image of Obama. It paused, then the sound of breaking glass reverberated through convention hall. The live feed of Hillary Clinton appeared as she thanked the convention for the Democratic nomination for President. Last night tears streamed down my face as I watched history happen and she officially accepted the nomination.  

Love her or hate her, Hillary made history. I can’t even begin to fathom the walls she had to push through, day after day, to get to this moment. I’m not here to debate her politics or practices. All I know is that the little girl inside of me was inspired by what I saw, and adult me had hope. Hope that one day women would be viewed as equals in the workplace.

Sometimes I wonder if my path would have been different if 8 year old me would have been able to see strong female leaders in positions of power. I don’t know. What I do know is that future generations of bossy little girls won’t have to wonder if they have a chance of becoming President one day, because they do.

Weekly Wednesday Weigh In #13

Meh, another slow week. It can definitely be frustrating when you don't even see a pound loss in 2 weeks. I looked over the week to see if I could figure out what was going on and if there was anything I could change.
1. I didn't sleep well this week. Especially on Saturday morning, I was super tired. For some reason I woke up several times each night last week to pee. Damn pee. I'm going to restrict my after 9pm beverage intake and see if that helps me stay asleep.
2. I ate most of my "limited free foods" this week. I know I "can" but I found myself falling into the habit of eating a hard candy there or a 25 calorie meringue there. It's within plan, and really only at extra 300-ish calories in a week, which is negligible. It's more the behavior. I don't "need" a candy treat. I'm not hungry. 

On Saturday night I definitely indulged and I'll see if it affects my weigh in this upcoming week. At least I have 6 days to work it off.

Saturday - Body Pump
Sunday - Run 2.2 miles, Body Flow
Monday- Body Combat
Tuesday - Rest - Kev and I went to dinner and played Pokemon
Wednesday - Body Combat
Thursday - Early Star Trek showing with Kev
Friday - Ladies Night

What I'm eating this week

This is what my Sunday morning breakfast looks like every week. Kev leaves for work, I go to Brueggers, get my coffee, come home and make my JC breakfast scramble. Usually scramble would imply that everything is mixed together, which it is, unless you like your potatoes separated, which I do. So I pick them out and cook them in the pan. Then I pit them on opposite ends of the plate because food can't touch.

I got a pretty decent side by side picture last week. I pulled out that polka dot shirt that I hadn't worm in a while. 

Timehop also gave me a picture from last year which was super helpful.  I'll be honest, the only reason why I downloaded Timehop was to get pictures from the past for my comparison shots.

I can see a little more definition in my waist from last year to this, which is nice. I also see that despite washing, that same crease is there. WTF? I've never noticed that before. 

Last week there were a few cheats. I had a hot dog for lunch on Saturday, an amazing dinner at Buku Saturday night, Subway on Sunday and dinner out on Tuesday. Like I mentioned earlier, I also had probably too many bites of things and candies, that were within my guidelines, probably weren't necessary.

I've cleaned it up a lot this week, here's hoping the scale reflects it!

I'm about to change your life

Let me start off by saying that I love me some pineapple but hate hate hate cutting it. Pineapple is the biggest pain in the ass fruit ever. Give me a watermelon any day over a stupid pineapple. 

Kev enjoys pineapple and there have been plenty of times when it was on sale and he bought one and I whined endlessly about not wanting to cut it. Believe me, my whining is just as awesome as it sounds. So, I refuse to cut pineapple. There are several fruits and vegetables that I'm "over", like asparagus and kale and pineapple. Done. If the pineapple isn't already cut and cored in a container, I don't want it.

Well, one thing Kev kinda despises are devices that only do one thing. A knife is great because you can cut all sorts of things with it. A cherry pitter, not so much. Despite all this, I'd heard tales of a device that cored and sliced pineapples, all in one fell swoop.

I was intrigued.

When I was at Kroger on Saturday, over by the... wait for it.... pineapples, I saw it. The elusive corer / slicer thingy. For a mere $7, I took the plunge.

But Lara, how does it work???

Cut the top off the pineapple. Put it to the side. Arrange all 3 pieces not at all artistically so you can take a picture of it. 

The end has a serrated edge, and you jam it in the center of the pineapple.

Then you start twisting and pushing down at the same time. Use two hands. For safety. There's a not sharp, well, it might be, I didn't touch it. Don't touch it and hurt yourself if you have a sharp one. 

There's a may or may not be sharp edge that cuts the pineapple as you push down and twist. It makes spiral pineapple. 



You kinda have to wiggle it a little to get the pineapple out but when you do, it's glorious.

When you're done and the fruit is out, it looks like this.

If you took out the core, it would be perfect for tropical boozy beverages, or smoothies, or to hold other fruit at your luau. The possibilities really are endless. 

After you take out the fruit, the yellow handle thing comes off and you can slide it off the
center plastic piece.

Then you cut it in half and put it in an unattractive bowl.

Is your life changed? I know mine is.

What's your favorite one use kitchen gadget?

Scenes from the Weekend

I swear, this weekend went abnormally fast. Is it just me? It's probably not just me. I need a vacation. We haven't really gone away since March and lordy am I feeling it. I just have to hold on until the end of August when we go away for our 10th anniversary. Just a few more weeks...

Alright, on to the weekend. Friday  night Kev was playing in a tennis tournament and afterwards he was planning on playing poker. I was heading over to a friend's house for a girls night, but first I stopped at the salon to get my nails done. I was in the mood for green this week.

OPI - One in a Windmillion

The girls night was a combo Lularoe and CR2F party. My friend Christy started selling Lularoe a few months ago and any chance I have to try on new clothes? Ya, I'm gonna take it. :) 

When your manicure matches your new CR2F mug...

I've mentioned my friend Carrie and her Etsy shop before. If you want some super cute prints, check out her stuff. I'm in lurve with my new mug. 

We had a Mini OG Kappa Delta Alumnae Chapter reunion and it was great to catch up with friends I hadn't seen in a while. I ended up leaving kinda late and I went straight to bed when I got home. #FridayNight. 

Per usual, it was up at 730am to go to my Jenny Craig appointment. I still had a loss but it wasn't awesome. I was really really tired though. I'm convinced that tiredness affects weight loss. When I'm well rested, I lose more. 

Caught a pokemon while waiting for my consultant. 

After I got my Jenny food, I headed next door to Kroger to get my fruits and veggies for the week. I never went there the last time, but Kroger did a 180 or something and the prices on their fruit and veggies are really reasonable. They've had $1.99lb cherries for the last 2 weeks, which has been awesome

I also found this gem.

Oh yes. boozy sparkling water. It's delightful.

Usually I get home, eat breakfast and go to my 1010am Body Pump class. I was really really tired and didn't think I'd have a good time at the gym. Instead Kev convinced me to come to his tennis tournament. It'll be great, you can watch me play in the 100+ degree heat. (It wasn't great. he fibbed)

Kev and his mixed doubles partner.

It was hot AF. The matches were running late, they got to to court late, their opponents wanted to warm up FOREVER. I was sitting on the concrete bleachers in the shade and as the match went on and on, the shade kept getting smaller and smaller until I was pressed up against the fence hiding from the beating sun. I now know how vampires facing the dawn must feel.

Finally i thought the game was done, like done done and Kev said that was only the first set and they could possibly have 2 more to go. I might have panicked and after he served, I went to the car. Then I went to the Publix  1 mile away and got an apple and a water. By the time I was in the parking lot, Kev texted that the match was over. It was soooo much sorter than the first.

My tired self as getting crankier and crankier and after we got home, I took a 2 hour nap.

We had reservations that night at the Capital Grille. It just opened and Kev had been waiting to go. We'd been to the one in Pittsburgh and knew it was going to be good.

Yes, I didn't have a great weigh in and then I ate my face in bread and booze. You know what. it was so worth it. I won't gain at my next weigh in, but I'm going to have to work a little harder to take off that meal.

One of 2. It was good. Not the best Cosmo I've had in Raleigh, but top 5. 

Kev wanted to try the tuna tartare appetizer and it was chopped tuna on top of chopped avocado. It's been a while, but we had a similar tuna appetizer in NYC years ago, and this is our favorite version of tuna tartare. So good. 

They had steak tartare on the menu, but I had it at the Pittsburgh location and it wasn't awesome. Good not great. Instead I went with the fillet (Pittsburgh Rare) and Kev had the Strip Steak.

Fillet and Kev's au gratin side dish.

Kev's Steak

I ordered the brussel sprouts but asked them to leave off the soy glaze. They did something else to them where they almost seemed deep fried? Meh, I sent them back because I couldn't eat them. I wish they had a plain old veggie side option. Everything had cream or some kind of sauce.

Kev wanted the cheesecake and it's made in house and has a brulee top.


The Capital Grille is a welcome steak house addition to the Triangle. That -ish ain't cheap, but damn is it good. 

We got home, I was still tired and wasn't awake long.

Sunday morning I got to sleep in. Cleo started the night in our room and I kicker her out around 1am. She was walking and jingling her tags and kept waking me up, so out she went. After she left, I slept pretty well until Kev got up at 630 to go the the rest of the tennis tournament (I did NOT go with)

Normal Sunday morning. Tidy the kitchen, do laundry, get my coffee, eat my JC breakfast Scramble...

I ran down to Trader Joe's for some groceries and went to the gym. I ran 2.3 miles on the treadmill before Body Flow. Let me tell you, there are ladies in there who are hard core about their spots. I get it, I have my spot too, but apparently 2 other ladies like that spot as well. I'm not going to be an a-hole, but I go to that damn class every. week. and they don't. Don't try and weasel in on my spot. I managed to get it on Sunday and there were 2 annoyed ladies on either side of me. #DontFWithMySpot.

Now I'm blogging and not wanting to fold laundry. :)

How was your weekend?

Weekly Wednesday Weigh In #12

Big loss one week, little loss the next week. I'm completely fine with the progress. 

Honestly, one of the main reasons I can keep going week after week is that I don't feel deprived at all though this process. If there's something "naughty" I want, I'll have it on Saturday night and leave the entire week to work it off. I still have my cosmos every Saturday, I have meat, sushi, dessert, all within reason, but I still eat it. Jenny feed me pasta (which I rarely eat) and desserts that hurt my stomach when I eat them from anywhere else. A JC brownie is the only one that doesn't hurt me. 

Also, when I make my own food, I eat the same thing every day. For 6 months I had 2 rice cakes and 2Tbs of peanut butter for breakfast. Every day.  At least on Jenny I have something different most days. I need my food to be convenient and healthy. Honestly, after I lose the weight this time, I need to get into meal planning or something else. Who am I kidding though, I'll probably keep buying Jenny breakfasts and some lunches. 

In other exciting flashback news, these 2 posts popped up on timehop.

I'll spare you the math, but 1 pound to the old "halfway to goal" was exactly what I weighed in at on Saturday. Yes, 6 years later, same Jenny Craig, same weight, same "almost to halfway". Le sigh, "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it." I'm going to learn this time. 

Saturday - Body Pump
Sunday - Body Flow
Monday-  Chiro
Tuesday - Run 4.2 miles
Wednesday - Rest
Thursday - Body Pump
Friday - Movie Night

Workouts this week were pretty good, my run was good and I got in 2 rounds of Body Pump which was nice. I upped my weights again and I'm almost back to my pre-injury weights. I'm 5 pounds off on my squats, 5 on the back and I'm still not using weights on the lunge track which is OK with me. I'd rather work on my form.

What I'm eating this week

I don't really have any fun extra food pictures this week, but I did have this nice pic of JC Fish and Chips. Complete with a side of malt vinegar, sauteed spinach and a bit of Kev's steak that he put on my plate. It was good.


I was pretty happy with the picture this week, I was able to do an exact side by side comparison in the same outfit, just a month and a half apart. I can definitely see it in my waist and in my arms. I still have a ways to go, but progress is progress!

My cheats this week weren't that different than in the past, I had Subway for lunch on Saturday, we ended up at Vin Rouge again that night where I had 2 cosmos, a few fries and steak tartare, again. Then on Sunday night Kev made a pasta / sausage / vegetable / cheese dish and that was my dinner. The other 5 days were pretty much on point.

All in all, it was a pretty decent week! Here's to another week of progress!

Scenes from the Weekend

Yes, yes it really is Monday already. Oy. I think I need more 3 day weekends. More and more and more. I'm just trying to stay focused until the end of August when Kev and I have our anniversary trip planned. Just gotta stay focused....

On to the weekend! for weeks I've wanted to see the new Ghostbusters movie. Yes, I'm a child of the 80s and as a kid when the first one came out and like many, I was a little miffed to hear that they were making a new one. But I saw the trailer and it didn't look bad. Kev was absolutely against it. He had NO desire to go. But I wore him down when I saw that it had gotten a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes. We went on Friday and you know what???

IT WAS GOOD! I'm picky about movies and if it was crap, even a little crap, I'd tell you. But it wasn't. It was really good and it made me happy. I don't know why, but it just made me happy and that gives it a thumbs up in my book.

Saturday morning dawned bright and early and I headed off for my weigh in (it went well). A little grocery shopping for fruit and veggies then home for breakfast. After breakfast I went to Body Pump class.

I've mentioned it before that there's a really annoying guy in class who likes to yell at people and talk over the instructor and today, the instructor finally got fed up and totally called him out. 

Annoying Guy - Yelling something at someone across the room while the instructor is talking
Instructor -  You want me to get you a microphone so you won't have to shout over me? 
Annoying Guy - Yea, I need a microphone
Instructor - If we go head to head to see who can be heard, you won't win, believe me, you won't win.

I was DYING and might have laughed out loud. Every week that guy is annoying AF and I'm glad someone called him out.

After I got home and showered, I went for a much needed pedicure. I'd brought my iPad to read a book while I had my toes done but instead this happened.

Sitting in the pedi chair, there were 5 Poke stops, 3 with attractors (apparently my terminology is wrong, these were "lures" but you get the picture) . I sat there and caught pokemon the entire time. #noshamehere.

I was pretty hungry afterwards and I still needed to run to Trader Joe's and the grocery store. I was in Lafayette Village and there's a hot dog shop that opened not that long ago. I have a secret love for hit dogs and all things considered, they aren't that bad of an option.

I knew JoCa's Gourmet Dogs was going to be good when they asked how I wanted my dog cooked. Boiled in water, grilled with a little char or split and grilled with butter on the flat top. 

Char please! With chipped onions, relish and a little bit of mustard (I took off most of the relish). For lunch, it's not that bad of an option. No fires or chips and it kept me full for a while. No veggies with lunch but it was still tasty. 

After I got home from my errands, I sat for a bit before we headed off to dinner. Our reservations were at 715 but we left early and went to Best Buy to look at TVs. We've had ours for a while and it was starting to get these little white spots on the screen. We found out the TV was recalled for this issue several years ago and we didn't know. Since it was WAY too late, we started pricing some newer models and yea, we ended up getting a new one that was bigger, better quality, and a lot less expensive than what we spent on the old one 7 years ago. 

Dinner was at Buku and they;re known for "Global Street Food" it had been a while since we'd been there and I'd been wanting to go back for a while. It was just as good as I remembered. They have a lot of Small Plates, Big Plates and Bowls. 

Kev had a bunch of small plates and I took a few bites. We had the Indian Naan, the Chinese Steamed Buns, which kinda looked like bun tacos with seasoned pork belly inside and they were stupid good, and the Buku Roll

Spicy Tuna on top, avacodo and crab inside.

Kev ate most of the Small plates and I had the Korean Bibimap

Grilled hangar steak, bok choy. roasted carrots, spicy pickled cucumber, kimchi, steamed rice, egg and a spicy BBQ sauce.

The waiter told mt that it was meant to be all mixed up in one big pile. I looked at him in horror. DO YOU SEE THE PERFECTLY SEPARATED PILES OF FOOD??? Mix it all up, have you lost your mind?!?! I finished probably about 1/3 of it and it was fantastic. Really, so good. 

Kev ate some of mine and then he went with the Apple Tart.


It was raining like CRAZY the entire time we were there and it just kept getting worse. When we drove though Downtown Raleigh it wasn't too bad.

Even though Krispy Kreme only had Doug for sale.

When we got off out exit, the flooding by the mall was insane! The stretch we had to drive until we started going uphill was really bad. I'm glad we had Kev's CRV instead of my car.

That's the parking lot at the mall! (Not my picture)

Sunday was a late morning. Sleeping in is glorious. I finally got up and made myself some JC Breakfast Scramble.

Sunday is the usual. Laundry, then I went to the gym and ran 2 miles on the treadmill before going to Body Flow.

On my way home from the gym I stopped at the movie theater to pre-buy our Star Trek tickets. Kev is a huge Trekkie and we were going to the Thursday night advanced screening at 730pm. 

Now a little blogging and more damn laundry. 

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Five on Friday - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

OMG Lara, really, you too? Every last Blogger on the planet just posted their Nordstrom Anniversary Sales picks. It's the only thing on my feed for the last day and a half. 

Yep, me too.

Here's why. I never really understood/cared about Nordstrom until I saw everyone start posting about the sale last year. I came in late to the game and even though a lot of it was picked over, there were still some amazing deals to be had. Each year Nordstrom opens their sale early to their card holders and what makes them different is that the anniversary sale isn't full of crap that didn't sell all year. .

Nope, there's plenty of items perfect for summer but even more that will be great for cooler weather. AND they discount designers that never go on sale. Hunter Boots, Tory Burch bags and shoes, Rag and Bone booties, there's some great deals if you were saving for something special. 

So, remember when this blog used to have a fashion component? Well, let's bring a little of that back today. I haven't really been shopping because shopping while losing weight isn't the brightest idea. I have a lot of pounds to go and I have plenty of sizes in my closet. (I say this as I post about the sale) Instead I was looking for items that were right on the edge of fitting and would still look good as I lost weight or even be a little oversized when I get to my goal. 

Let's be honest, it's almost time for fall. I "know" it's only the middle of July, but PSL will be here at the end of August, school supplies are out, college starts back up in like 4 weeks. Yes, the sorority I advise comes back on the 8th of August for spirit week, classes start the week after, recruitment is around the corner, football is starting back up. Shit, we all need a jacket.

So, here are 5 of my top picks for the Anniversary Sale. Some of these may or may not already be on their way to me.... 

When I saw this in the catalog, I knew it was something I "had" to try on. It comes in olive, black and this one which they're calling Grey Ebony. I searched all last fall for a nice draped front jacket and never found one I loved. Honestly, for the fall, I love me a nice jacket. They're great for layering, especially for cold offices. I swear, every day at 4pm the winds of the tundra start blowing in my office.

I love a good pair of crop leggings for the gym, it's all I ever wear. I can't do full length or ankle pants unless I'm running outside in the cold. Give me a crop any day and these have a little mesh, which I'm totally in to right now. I ordered the large which fits a 10-12. Even at goal I expect to be a pretty solid 8 and maybe a 6 here or there, and these will be fine, I'll never lose enough booty for gym pants to fall off. 

AKA, the Blardigan. 

WTF is a Blardigan Lara? Well folks, it's a cardigan that feels like a ridiculously soft blanket. It's warm and cozy and you'll want to wear it all the time. These sold out like crazy last year and I see that the all grey one is already sold out. Which amazes me because THIS ONE IS GORGEOUS. Oh my pretty, that Nordstrom gift card I have is going towards you. I got the small/Medium which fits a 2-10.

It's a striped shirt and like a fat kid in a candy shop, I'm unable to control myself around one. I did order the large, and depending on the fit, it might go back for the medium. It's junior sized though, so we'll see. 

I also love Nordstrom for their free shipping. Order off the website, free shipping and if I don't like it or want a different size, I just return it to the store. If  the replacement is in the store, great, if not, get it online.

I have a slight obsession with Kendra Scott and might spend more time than I should at their store in Durham, but this, this necklace I love. I have a deep love of the Rayne necklace with the tassel but the Rae is just as pretty. The color combos they have on sale are perfect for the summer and fall. This gunmetal and abalone are amazing together and the gold and pyrite? 
I die. 

Happy Shopping folks!

Weekend Recap!

Hey everyone, I'm still trying to figure out the weigh-in posts vs the weekend ones. If I did my weigh-ins on Wednesdays or something that rhymed, it would make this all a lot easier.

Friday night, me and all the cool kids went to the gym. I needed to get a run in to help combat the Thursday's indiscretions and the pie tastings of day. For the pie-bake off I made a blueberry sour cream pie and and a cream pie with meringue on top. I'd never made a cream pie before so I had to cut in and make sure it set properly. (It did)

I called Kevin before I left and asked him if he'd heard of the new Pokemon Go game. He had not, I explained it, and a few minutes later, I got this picture.

Apparently the other variations of Poke Your Mom were already taken.

Everyone at work was playing and I downloaded the game and yea, a lot of Pokemon searching happened this weekend. 

I got up Saturday morning and went to my 8am Jenny Craig appointment. Every week Kev asks me why I don't let myself sleep in, and every week I figure that it's better to get up and get it over with before the day starts. I wake up, get ready, they to go to the bathroom as many times as possible (you know you do too), don't eat or drink anything and drive to the center. 

I texted Kevin the results of my weigh-in and he asked me to get a bagel sandwich.

I found this bat thing in there. And so it began...

Just like most Saturdays, I headed to 1010 Body Pump class after having my breakfast. Thankfully this week I didn't hurt myself. Don't ask how, but last week I dropped a weight on my right boob. Just don't ask...

It was a good class, the really, really annoying old dude wasn't there this week. He always complains that people don't say hi to him and he argues with the instructor. A pure gem that fellow is.

I went home and showered, had my afternoon snack and soon it was time for Kev and I to head to pool. It wasn't oppressively hot Saturday, which was nice.

But first, we stopped, well, I stopped to get lunch and bring it to the pool. 

I'm really not a big fan of the pool, but Kev wanted to go and we had a lovely time. I got a little bit of sun and got sweaty again. I listened to a podcast and it was lovely. 

After the pool, we sat around a while before heading to dinner. We again went to Vin Rouge in Durham. Vin Roue is always a favorite of mine, but we don't make it to Durham all that often. But for some reason, over the last 11 weeks of weigh-ins, we've been there 3 times. I mean, I'm not complaining, I eat the same thing every time and I love it.

Steak Tartare, Frites and a Cosmo. Note Kev's dish of cheesy potatoes.

It was a really nice night and Kev wanted to go take a walk down 9th street in Durham and look for dessert. Let me tell you, there are all sorts of Pokestops on 9th Street. We might have caught a few Pokemon after dinner.

Kev wasn't thrilled with any of the choices, so we headed downtown Durham to Revolution instead. I haven't been there in a few years and I seem to recall there being a lot more people there on a Saturday night. This night, not so much. It was kinda sad. At least Kev's apple tart was good.

I had a tea and caught a Weedle on the table.

After dessert, we wandered around looking for more Pokemon. Before you laugh, we saw at least 7 other people doing the same thing. 

Sunday morning dawned bright and early, and I did my usual thing of laundry, cleaning the kitchen, eating my JC Breakfast Scramble and getting groceries. 

After I got back from getting groceries, I went to the gym. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and then I went to Body Flow for some yoga.

I got home, showered and now it's time to do some blogging. A pretty uneventful Sunday. Nice and peaceful.

Kevin is watching Ocean's 12 and they keep talking about the master thief, Lamarque I've been singing along Les Mis style for the last 30 minutes. Thankfully Kev loves me.

Lamarque is ill and fading fast
won't leas the week out, so they say
with all the anger in the land, how long before the judgement day?

He finished the lyrics.

Have you downloaded the Pokemon Go app yet??
