Random Ramblings 02

01:: On Friday, we went to the Gymdogs meet with the newly wedded Price's. Thanks for the invite, friends! It's been super fun hanging out with them recently. It was hubs' first time at a Gymdogs meet {they're a big deal at UGA}, and it was fun to get to go with him. The Gymdogs hosted a "Pink-Out" {hence, our pink shirts} to raise awareness for breast cancer month.

02:: I made Broccoli soup for the first time today {thinking about posting the recipe later this week}. When I started the roux, I noticed it was WAY too thick, but I couldn't figure out what the problem was. The recipe is one of Mike's from the year he worked at Bear Trap Ranch. I decided to half it since it was intended to make 12 servings....but, I didn't half the flour for the roux. Oopsy. We now have A LOT of leftover soup.

03:: If you're a follower of this blog, you've probably already read that hubs and I are keeping to a cash budget. The most difficult envelope to maintain is our grocery envelope. BUT, I feel beyond successful because we kept to our allocated amount this month!!

04:: Hubs and I both got new running shoes from a new Running store in Athens last weekend. We went to Athens Running Company and loved it because they evaluate the way you run and fit your foot to the best kind of shoe. {Hooray for more motivation to run!} We spent a little more than what we would have normally done on athletic shoes, but we had some leftover Christmas money. If you're in the area, you should check them out.

05:: We have the most fashionable college ladies at our church. It's fun to keep up with see the newest fashions each season. I have to keep myself in check that I don't have to have the coolest clothes to go to church.

06:: I got to catch up with 3 of my closest friends on the phone last week, which was super fab. It was especially great to talk to Paige in Savannah. She is a newly licensed esthetician, and I'm MONDO excited for her new business. She's going to be great, friends.

Why, oh why, are the weekends never long enough? I am learning that I can't fit in everything I want/need to do, especially if I want to be sane by Monday. Now back to the Oscar's...


  1. I have to agree that the CCC college gals are some of the best dressed ladies around. I spent many a Sunday morning checking out everyone's outfits and hairstyles as everyone filed in.

    I never went to a gym dawg meet but wished I had. :)

  2. this was after our last leadership meeting at your place wasn't it? (the oscar's) ;) I miss you~
