I’m drooling over your sweet potato fries. Today….I had an ultrasound! Yay for a healthy baby! :-)
I did some major socializin’ on twitter and facebook. Walked for 2 hours while reading The Help. Ate some awesome food, including dark chocolate m&m’s. :-) I hope you have a great vacation!
awesome shoes! I always gravitate to the BRIGHTEST running shoes. :)
Ok when I first saw the picture of your playlist I saw “Jersey” and immediately thought it said “Jersey Shore” — and I thought those fools make music now too?? Thank God it was Jersey Boys!!!
What the heck did I do today: worked, ran, lifted weights, ate BLTs and sweet potato fries for dinner and I’m about to watch the Project Runway season premiere!
Those are sweet shoes!! So cool that they might even have the power to help motivate me to exercise…or at least run around the kitchen finishing off our butter supply…
I made sweet potato friiiiiiiies today too! :) Great minds think alike. Well, ALMOST alike – I should’ve made those stinkin’ delicious looking cookies! ;)
Bella is sooo cute!! And I want those cookies. LOVE your blog! Esp. all the cake batter treats.
I got stuff organized for college move in day, packed a little, caught up (kinda) on laundry that’s been neglected all week since I’ve been half dead/sick all week, and made myself a salsa/pepper jack cheeseburger. Yum. Now time to pack for my last church getaway this weekend…
fantastic photos!!! many of my recipes look like that, too!!!
Looks like some awesome sandwiches! That puppy is SO cute : )
I worked all day and then made marshmellow peanut butter brownies for my siblings who are coming to visit this weekend!
Your pup is so flipping adorable! What did I do today? got to work by 7:30 and actually got a lot done, argued with CVS/prescription insurance/health insurance for over an hour and a half (still not resolved – not a happy girl), dyed my hair, and made “twix” brownies for my hubby, who gets home after a week+ of business travel tomorrow! hurrah for that!
Yay for new kicks– i actually bought some today too — brighttt green and purple! Secretly excited for my morning workout to try em out, yay! :)
Locked myself out of my office for an hour and sat twiddling my thumbs until the maintenance guy came and let me in.
Same thang! Snuggled with the pup, worked (http://bevcooks.com/2011/07/thai-pork-salad-with-cellophane-noodles-2/) brushed my hair. (I’m serious.) Swept the floors.
DRANK WINE. Well, not during the day. Maybe.
I like the looks of your shoes too! Your food picts look yummy and the puppy … cute!
NOT a busy day at the office. Finished reading Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. Came home and started to mow the yard … rained out. Grilled some pork chops and working on my blog post for Friday.
Yummy! I cleaned the house today. It’s okay, you don’t have to be jealous ;)
That BLT w/ avocado looks right up my alley! And Bella… oh my god. Seriously, I think she is the cutest little puppy ever, so fuzzy! I just want to squish her with cuddles!
Love Brooks. Favorite Running sneaks
Where is Bella going?
PS – I feel like a Jessica stalker. I follow you on FB, Instagram, Pinterest…. I’m approaching stalker status. But you rock so much, I can’t stop!
We are leaving for vacation tomorrow so she is going to stay with her mom. :) Oh man, you should have seen how excited her mommy dog was to see her! And one of her brothers and sisters were there too. It was priceless. Puppy reunion!
Love the new kicks! And the rest!
I wrote a blog post that took forever for no reason at all. Haha. I went to a personal training session where the guy tried to kill me. And now … I’m going out to dinner to undo everything the guy did. :)
I sucked water out of our finished basement with a shop vac this morning (we got 14.5 inches in one night!!!!), made your Giant Rainbow Cookies with the kids (for the second time now), and counted down the time until the kids could go to bed. Love reading your entries every day! You always make me laugh.
Those sandwiches look AMAZING. I want them both :)
Today I had class, did yoga, and hung out with Suave Slav :)
I could just eat that puppy right up!!!!!! Cutest puppy ever!
I just realized how creeper I sound….oh well!
Yum! And what a cutie Bella is! I visited some relatives, loved up my Bella (my almost 3 year old daughter), cooked dinner, and took lots of drugs to try to get rid of whatever’s making me feel like crap :(
I worked too! But based on your notes it seems like you had a better day at work!
I also enjoyed a semi-BLT + avocado, but my bacon was actually bacon tempeh. Yum!
I worked at home today…had some cocktails on the deck and now I am catching up on blogs and facebook. Caught up with an old friend which was great:-). I have to say those big fat cookies look incredible. Is that the same technique from those rainbow cookies a few weeks ago – definitely need to try that!!
Sort of – made a few changes but recipe coming next week!
Today I drove home from vacation and then sat around like a really lazy bum.
Thankfully I had your recipes to catch up on. :)
I took new running shoes out of the box yesterday! I had them on hand from the Nike store. I always have a pair waiting in the wings.
Nice road trip treats!
How did you get your pics like this? I love them!! The black borders, the squares, then being able to add the written text on them. Inquiring minds would love to know!!!
Girl all I did was upload my instagram pics! I think the black border is from the filter I used, but all of my instagram pics come up square. I don’t size them or anything, just send them to my email and download to my comp. You should be able to write a “caption” on all of your photos that you upload – it’s in the step before you hit “insert in post!”
Oh good info!
All my pics that I have posted to IG are automatically square too! I always use different filters, i.e. Hefe, Nashville, Normal, etc..so I guess that’s why mine all seem so different looking.
And the label “Caption” writing…I never paid attn to that in wordpress but I am going to now!
Blogging 101, eh? Hard to believe I’ve written 1000++ posts and some days I feel like I’m a virgin :)
i dreamt about your strawberry margs…still want one :)
oh and I got a manicure and pedicure and drowned myself in iced coffee :)
Sounds like a fun day! Bella is way too cute for words. I bet she’s happy to be with her doggy-family, but no doubt she will miss her people-family. I picked up a mirror from a high school friend that she had redone herself into “shabby-chic”, I LOVE IT! I also browsed at my local Borders – so sad they’re closing…then I came home and made Janetha’s healthy mac & cheese and baked chicken strips – SO FREAKING GOOD. Now I’m going to put my feet up and look through my new Williams Sonoma Cooking at Home cookbook that i scored for $6.39 :)
You should have found a way to transport those sweet potato fries to my stomach – just sayin’.
Those sandwiches and fries look BOMB DOT COM! Looks like you had a good day!
Torture with those cookies!! They look ridiculous. How do they get so fluffy?!?!
Nice sneakers! I seriously need some new running shoes. Mine are 2 years old!
I will fly to PA and pet sit Bella for free… or a plate of cookies. She is so incredibly precious!
Hot Stone Massage….I wished it was 90 minutes though instead of the 60 minutes…still amazing though!
Not too much. Today was my day off from work, so I caught up on the new episodes of True Blood, caught up on all my blog reading, went to Target, did laundry, went to Starbucks, and now watching So You Think You Can Dance. Not too exciting…I think your day was better than mine for sure!
Bella is just the cutest! And those sweet potato fries look super yummy!
woke up suuuuuuuper late for work. read bossypants, tina fey’s new book, and highly recommed it to all the ends of the earth. got my cycling on. made sweet potato latkes. ate trix cereal out of the box. just a day in the life! those ciabattas… heavenly.
I worked all day long. Then came home and made breakfast burritos for dinner, mmmm then walked to Chapters to browse the cookbook section!!
went to giant eagle, got my 3 little girls ready and took them to my moms to visit with her, my papa, and my great aunt marty :), then drove around and looked for our dream house with daddy before bedtime.
I love ALL of these things! Lucky! ;) I had a terribly boring day: errands, gym, dissertation. Ew.
I made vegan cholcolate zucchini cookies with butterscotch chips- a GIANT batch of them i must add… guess ill be eating cookies all weekend!
Those sandwiches look awesome! Yesterday I worked. Today I work. Fun times
Do you KNOW how much FUN I am having following your COOL~GIRL life on Instagram! Happe Weekend COOL~GIRL! ;o) xo
Yesterday was a sweet day! It was sunny for almost the first time all summer! I actually wore shorts! (B.C. has had the coldest summer! I think 27 degrees C. has been the high temp). I went shopping across the border in bellingham with my sisters and sister-in-law, read Little Women, went to a friends for supper and then went to bed early! It was a fabulous summery day!
I love your picture day….I ran an ton of errands and then we played our usual Friday Night Card Games…Chicks won! YaY!
