Yet again I fail to sleep in. I went out last night for some retro night dancing (heck, if they’re going to play the Fresh Prince theme song I cannot miss out on that) and didn’t end up getting home and into bed until at least 3:30. Same deal Saturday night.
What time did I wake up both mornings? 9:30. I try to fall back to sleep, I really do, but once I’m awake it’s a done deal, there’s no more sleeping for me if the sun is up. I’m going to have to try having an early bedtime tonight I guess!
Today wasn’t too eventful. I made myself a egg-y breakfast with egg whites, salsa, spinach, and a slice of fat free swiss on half a toasted english muffin. Eaten with some slices of a pear on its last leg, plus half of an orange.
After spending a good amount of time doing some room cleaning and jewelry organizing, I cooked up some sweet potato, white potato and butternut squash. I tried slicing the white potato up thin for some “potato chips” but I kind of burnt them. And half of them stuck to the pan because I was a true genius and didn’t bother spraying or anything beforehand. They were insanely crispy though, which works quite fine for me!
Then I went out shopping with my mom to do some Christmas returns and whatnot, and I also bought my New Years dress!
I was slightly worried that I wouldn’t find something since it’s pretty close to the date and I wanted something within a half decent price range… but I found one, it was on sale and it wasn’t black. Now there’s nothing wrong with a black dress (I love em), but I have a couple and I just felt like getting something a little different. Success!
It’s strapless, slightly above knee length and has a slightly funny open back thing going on but I like it and this red is one of my favourite colours so it works for me. It was only $69.99 too, which isn’t exactly dirt cheap to my sale-loving and slightly stingy self, especially considering it’s not something I am going to be wearing on a regular basis, but it was cheaper than I thought I might be stuck spending for a dress I really liked so I can handle that.
And on the note of New Years, What are all of your New Years plans?
Last year I went to my friend’s boyfriend’s really sketchy house party. It was terrible and I wasn’t doing quite so well then… I hardly made it past midnight and was home by about 12:30. Haha. This year I am going with a group of friends to our most frequented club. Clearly that’s more my comfort zone. I’m anticipating a more enjoyable New Years this year at least!
Dinner was a random array of leftovers that have been taking up valuable fridge space: Lasagna, sweet sticky chicken, and frozen veggies. I had a bit more of everything, except for the veggies of which I had a lot more. You can never have too many veggies!
And on a final note, since I know some of you will appreciate this, I finally jumped onto this bandwagon:
I received the first for Christmas…and was half done a day later. I haven’t yet finished the rest just because I’d had quite a few things to do but I now understand and appreciate the hype. And the complete and utter adoration of Edward Cullen. I plan on going out to by the second very soon. And now I’ll have to see the movie as well. The only thing wrong with the entire scenario is that I put off following the trend for this long. What was I thinking.
