Life Lately…

Life lately has been full of a lot of excitement.  One of my best friends just got engaged on Sunday, and I’m so over-the-top happy for her!  I honestly felt like I was reliving my own engagement when I found out about hers.  I love love!

Me and Rosh hiking in AZ!

Life lately has been full of packing.  Lots and lots of packing.  My dad is flying in on Thursday night, and we’re driving down to Fort Lauderdale on Saturday – me in my car and my dad in a U-Haul.  Thank God for my dad!

Life lately has been full of omelets.  My sister called today just as I was finishing dinner, and when I told her what I ate, she laughed.  I’ve been eating an egg white omelet with black beans, goat cheese, and salsa for dinner every other night for the past week and a half.  What can I say – it’s easy and filling.  And anyway, it’s hard to cook when most of your pots, pans, and kitchen gadgets are packed away.

Life lately has been full of funny ideas.  The particular incident I’m thinking about has to do with our new apartment and Vishnu’s inspection.  After getting the keys, he went in to take a look and then called me to let me know everything was good to go.  Almost.  He told me that we would most likely have to put our dresser in the closet because there was no way everything was going to fit in our bedroom.  My initial response was, “You want to put the dresser in the closet?!  What are you talking about!?”  He told me there’s no space for all of our furniture.  I then proceeded to go online and take a closer look at the layout and dimensions for our apartment.  I didn’t know what he was talking about – the master bedroom is huge.  I laughed at his ridiculous comment, but he was still convinced that the dresser was going in the closet.  When he got back to his apartment, he decided to measure all of the furniture to see if it would indeed fit [like I believed].  I got a phone call afterwards, and lo and behold, the dresser will not be going in the closet. 

Life lately has been full of nerds.  I’m done with the first five seasons of The Big Bang Theory.  LOVE THIS SHOW!  I can’t wait for season six to start in September!

One of my favorite scenes!


Life lately has been full of sleepless nights.  And this is frustrating.  There is nothing better then getting into bed, closing your eyes, letting your body relax, and falling fast asleep.  But no.  I get into bed, toss and turn, and get up at least twice throughout the night.  I would be surprised if I was getting a full six hours a night.  This has got to change…ASAP.  I’m really hoping being back at home for a while will help remedy the situation.  *Fingers crossed*

Life lately has been hectic but fun.  Lots of fun. Smile

What has life been for you lately?

A Roasted Veggie Kind of Weekend

I hope your weekend was splendid and fun.  Mine was a bit all over the place.  On Friday morning, I headed down to Fort Lauderdale for the night.  I had to take care of a couple of things, AND I got to see my man!  Two for one!

Vishnu wanted to eat a meal centered around quinoa, so for dinner, we made this…

We topped the quinoa with roasted veggies (zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, broccoli, onions, and sweet potatoes) and Mmmm Sauce.  This meal was a huge hit!

And since I was the head cook, Vishnu and Mike (his roommate) cleaned.  I could get used to this!

Dessert was new to me break and bake cookies by Immaculate Baking Co.

FLL 006

These mini cookies were delicious, and the ingredient list was impressive – only 11 ingredients, all of which I could pronounce.

Before I left on Saturday, Vishnu and I made grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.

A turkey, pepper jack, spinach, and roasted red pepper sandwich for him…

FLL 007

A [burnt] pepper jack and granny smith apple sandwich for her…

FLL 008

No worries – it still tasted pretty good.  The granny smith and pepper jack combo is a winner (burnt bread or not).

The majority of Saturday was spent creating wedding lists and updating all of my files.  I have a few appointments next week when I head back to Atlanta for another wedding, and I want to make sure everything is in order beforehand.  We’re almost at the two month mark…woo hoo!

Sunday started off with a spin class, followed by cleaning and laundry.

I also did something I’ve been thinking a lot about but have never followed through on.  I prepped lunch for the rest of the week – Mmmm Sauce, roasted veggies (onions, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts), baked tofu, and quinoa.

Now all I have to do is throw a bit of everything in a contained and go.  Delicious AND healthy!

And I may have indulged in a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory over the weekend. I. Just. Can’t. Stop.

I have issues.

Tell me about something fun you did, ate, or watched this weekend.

What I’ve Been Loving Recently

1. Buxom Lip Gloss

This lip gloss is pretty much the best thing ever.  It delivers the perfect amount of shine, creates the illusion of fuller lips, and keeps lips soft and smooth for hours.  And the best part is the slight tingle you feel upon applying the gloss. 

I was actually able to try this via a free gift at Sephora, and the color I got was called Sugar.  Unfortunately, I lost my little sample while out in Atlanta with my cousins but plan on picking up a full size gloss soon.  You won’t regret this purchase.  Promise!

2. Zac Efron in The Lucky One

Anyone else?  After catching 17 Again on TV this Sunday, I was even more excited for The Lucky One to hit theaters.  The movie is based on the Nicholas Sparks’ novel and is set to be released next Friday!  When I first heard that Zac Efron was playing the male lead, I didn’t think too much about it, but after seeing the trailer, I’m kinda in love…with him.  And yes, Vishnu knows.  I don’t care what anyone says, he’s dreamy!

3. The Big Bang Theory

I can’t get enough of this show lately.  Every episode cracks me up.  And I have to admit, Sheldon Cooper is my favorite.  His inability to comprehend basic human emotions is endearing….most of the time.  Oh and “bazinga!”  Ha ha!

4. Knowing that in 48 hours I will be in Miami with my girls!

Oh, South Beach, we meet again!!!
