Today flew by…I guess it’s because I had a very special visitor coming in today. Smile  More on that in a minute.

I usually don’t indulge y’all in lifecasting posts because let’s be honest, my every day life is not all that exciting.  I wake up, workout, go to work, come home, make and eat dinner, blog, read, and go to sleep.  Not the best blog material.  But today I’m going to delve into a bit of lifecasting…just for kicks!

Let’s start with this morning…  My alarm went of at 5 am.  Instead of waking up and heading to the gym as planned, I reset my alarm for 6:30 am.  Guess what…today turned out to be a rest day!  And you know what, that’s ok with me because we all need a little rest sometimes.  Even though my workouts haven’t been that intense lately, my mind is constantly running and going in a million directions.  So yeah, this rest day was much needed!

Work was good.  Lunch was better!  I’m telling you…I wish I could bring each of you to work with me for the food.  A-MAZING!  I had spring pea and kale risotto today with a side of apple and potato salad, a basil salad (basil, tomato, olives, onions), and a thick slice of grilled pineapple.  Holy yum!

After work, I headed home to grab a bite before heading out to the airport.  I quickly made a protein shake to go.

On the way to the airport, I talked to my parents.  My mom told me a really scary story.  Apparently, a guy at my dad’s work has been charged for killing his wife.  They found her body the other day.  My dad is pretty shaken up…I would be too (and honestly, I am a little bit).  I mean this guy worked with my dad.  My heart goes out to the woman’s children and her family.  I can’t imagine what they’re going through.  This story reminded me of my old dentist who was also found guilty of killing his wife.  Although with him, I always knew something was a little off.  Scary!  You just never know with people.

Anyways, I eventually arrived at the airport and picked up my sister.  It was so good to see her.  She’s as cute as ever! 

We were both a little hungry when we got home, so I made some gourmet (well to me at least) grilled cheese sandwiches.  I used Trader Joe’s Sprouted Multi-Grain bread and lite Havarti cheese. If you have yet to try these two things, please do so immediately.  They are amazing together.  The bread has a really dense texture, but it isn’t too chewy.  And I don’t think the cheese needs to be explained…it’s good – just take my word for it!

And today must be your lucky day because I’m about to share my secret ingredient for a perfect grilled cheese.  Ready?!  Mayonnaise.  Before you groan and turn away, hear me out.  All you want to do is spread a thin layer on both sides of the bread, and if you do, you’ll have a perfect grilled cheese every time.  I promise!

After dinner, I video chatted with Vishnu.  He moved down to South Florida this weekend.  He’s currently in the middle of orientation week for medical school.  So far so good!  I must say…I love technology.  Being able to see him while we talk makes all the difference.

Ok, one more funny story before I let y’all go.  So when Vishnu moved to Philadelphia for graduate school (yes, he’s a nerd) a few years ago, I was VERY sad (duh!).  And when we video chatted for the first time after he left, I saw his face and immediately started crying.  He was so confused.  Actually seeing him made me miss him even more, which in turn made me super emotional.  After I realized that I was being a little silly, I started laughing, which confused him even more.  He was just staring at me with a worried expression on his face.  To this day, he has no idea how to react when I start to cry.  Boys!

Have a good night, y’all!  It’s almost the weekend!

Which do you prefer, mindcasting posts or lifecasting ones?
