Happy Friday everyone!!! I'm so thrilled Friday is finally here! You have no idea!The last few weeks I've been getting to work at 7:30 and most nights not leaving until 5:30 or 6.. so any chance I get to relax, I'm doing it! To protest my new schedule I showed up to work at 8 today and I am running out the door at approximately 4:59. Don't tell my boss I'm leaving early though! Haha! (my hours are 8-5 btw in case you think I'm crazy for leaving an hour early) I'm sorry for doing alot of complaining lately about how busy I am.. I'm cranky- what can I say???
So let's see where was I?????? Ohhhhh yea! Food! *****(I'm sitting here staring at my picture folder on my desktop and the thing that is staring back at me is the taco picture from my previous post. God I'm flipping hungry!!!!)*****
Well like I said my old aunty picked up some GF ice cream cones for me. She is so good sometimes- I swear she is the most annoying old woman I know besides my grandmother- but she ALWAYS finds the most random GF/DF shit out there. And gets them for pennies! Here's what she picked up for me the last time she came over-
I know right?! Let me tell you I tore into this box as soon as I saw it. I bit into one thinking it was going to taste like cardboard. I was close. Fluffy cardboard with a slight hint of vanilla. Just like a REAL ICE CREAM CONE!!!
Well we didn't have any ice cream in the house, sadly, so poor Olivia could not try it out for real. But I think my substitute was pretty good! Chocolate pudding! It looks like real ice cream doesn't it?
She was happy with it! Good right after a bath treat...
Hmmmm soooo what did I eat? I tried one of these...
that really looked like this...
It was "ok". I liked it but for how much it cost ($5!!!) I could've bought 6 salmon filets at Target (indivually frozen.. those babies are yummmm and super easy to make)
The problem I had with it was I was hungry five minutes later! It was supposed to fill me up! It had 390 calories and 13 fat grams in it. And good fat, walnuts and salmon - what happened there?! I supplemented the dinner with some Cinnamon Puffins and chocolate almond milk. Great dessert!
Thursday night is dance class night with my sister-in-law! We had a blast AGAIN. I think I forgot to tell you how last week went too. We got there last week and I was figuring it would be a fluff class for me because as you guys know I have danced salsa for four years, and taught for one of those years. I was pretty cocky going into it. Well... I got booted in the butt! The teacher teaches salsa ON TWO. Which is New York style salsa- which.. I never learned. I learned ON ONE. The basic difference is where you break your steps. If you watch my salsa video (I think its the one where I have a skirt on..) you can see that I step forward on the FIRST count of the beat, where as NY Salsa you step forward on the SECOND beat. This is completely backwards from what I learned and I was absolutely scared to death. But I figured it out and now I think I have it- I just need to learn all the fancy shines and footwork that go along with it.. Well anyway last night my SIL told me that her friends wanted to know why I was going (there is a group of 4 of us who go together..) because I already know how to dance and shouldn't be in a beginner class. Ummmmmm I guess they missed the whole first class where I was stumbling over the steps! Well anyway my feelings were hurt for a few minutes there but I got over it. My SIL loves that I'm going because I help her out so I'm gonna keep going!
Have you guys ever felt bad because you were "better" than someone else at something? I'm not sure I should feel guilty here. Yea, I have the technique and the style, but I know absolutely nothing about NY style footwork so it was a great challenge!
For those of you and you who need constant Olivia pictures... here is her "dress down" Friday school outfit. TOO CUTE!!!
Hope everyone is having a GREAT Friday and I will "see" you all SOON!!!!
