Hooray, I finally have time for bloggin’! I’ve worked my
little big behind off the past four days, and it feels so so good to sit down and relax. I am working again tomorrow, but then I have a b.r.e.a.k.
Yesterday’s event was extremely longgg. I clocked in a total of 13 hours! The wedding was at a campground-ish area on the river, yet this was no casual wedding. The bride looked like a princess as she pulled up to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage. Setting up a reception for 300 people, prepping food for 300 people, serving food for 300 people, and then cleaning up after 300 [drunk] people is a lot of work, people. Overall, the event went well on our part. But… the bride was not too happy that her cake collapsed! [We were not responsible for this.] Shouldn’t the cake baker know better than to leave a 4-tiered cake sitting in the 90* heat!? I was terribly sad for the bride; that would be my worst wedding nightmare!
I have to admit, with little chance to blog this past week, I also avoided filling up my camera card with my eats. Think of it as a good thing though, because now I’m motivated to do my thing again…
Van’s + a perfect peach, pecans, unsweetened coconut, and drizzle of real maple.
Today’s dinner [apparently, only yellow & green were invited to the party].
organic lettuces + arugula, fresh parsley, grilled tofu, avocado, cucumber, tomato, peppers, vinaigrette, salt and pepper
steamed farmers’ market squash + basil chevre

As a top-heavy athlete, any generic sports bra will not do the job – no cute and colorful under garments for me : ( I need a bra with a lot of support, and unfortunately, most that do that are expensive [I’d rather suffer the price of a good bra, than suffer the physical pain] and not stylish. I can rarely find a racerback that does the trick. That is, until I came across Bounce, Title Nine’s extensive bra collection.
I decided for as much as I exercise, having more than 2 sufficient sports bras was necessary; I chose the Triple Threat Underwire.
I can’t give it an honest review yet, as I haven’t given it a true test-run, but so far it fits great… and it’s not too terribly ugly. I have high hopes.
Do you have any favorite exercise ‘unmentionables’?
Do you splurge on any particular exercise items/attire?
I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for the week ahead. How is it almost mid-July!?
