Missed Me???

Hello my loves! Did you miss me??? because I missed all of you! This weekend I spent most of time with my family or STUDYING or with Heidi and Spencer! ha…please tell me that I was not the only one sucked into the The Hills marathon on MTV! lol

Friday I spent most of my day shopping with my mom and sister…I got some cute t-shirts at Old Navy and we also went to our local Tar-Jay and they unveiled the new Fresh Produce Dept! I think I heard angels sing when I walked in lol

Saturday I had an amazing 3 mile run at the park and then when I looked down and it looked like a tinkled on myself! I went to Sports Authority with my family and got some dry-fit Nike Pants! I am so happy to hear that some of you girls have gone through the same thing! You guys made me laugh via twitter…thanks!

We then went to a flea market in Long Island which was HORRIBLE! At least I got some cardio while I walked around =)

Sunday I spent all day Studying and watching The Hills!

  1. Yes I missed you! Aren't those cheese sticks at Friday's the best? And the Shrimp Key West is bangin too haha. I'll be over soon for a muffin.

  2. whoa...thos cheese sticks look legit! i never wanted fried cheese so badly in my life.

    awesome eats.

    Im cancelling my movie package once Ben movies in so i will be sitting on your couch with you wathing the Hills marathons...oh and jersey shore once it comes back on!

    We missed you yesterday! xoxoxx

  3. You are so funny!! Hope you enjoy your new pants.

  4. Love JAckie Warner! Never tried her exercises but she's great

  5. Brownie obsession looks so good. I know you weren't the only one watching The Hills...some of my friends were twittering about it. I'm glad I didn't flip the TV on because I probably would've been hooked!

  6. I missed you! And yes I was sucked into the hills too ;-)

  7. The Hills ehh? I've never gotten into that show, thank goodness, because I probably would have been with you watching that marathon!

    I tried to look for the lasagna at Trader Joe's the other day but couldn't find it!!

    Glad you had a nice weekend Mari.

  8. GET IT GIRL! I am proud of your studying. I usually watched RuPaul's Drag Race or any Bravo reality show while I was studying. :)

  9. You are one busy lady! Oh fried food and brownie at TGIF, I can't remember the last time I had that! Your OIAJ always look so fab, I need to make those sometime!! Glad you're back!

  10. One mozzarella stick? Girl, you have more willpower than I.

    I am proud to say I've never watched the Hills, I think it would be like Jersey Shore and I would get sucked in and become a member of an online forum to talk all about the show lol

  11. Ok I'm a little behind but how do you make your protein cookie dough??

  12. I miss you every day. I am not sure if Mo told you... but my work blocks your blog. Get ready to giggle about why... Pornography? So I never get to read it during my lunch!!!! Boo!

  13. Yep, I missed you! Thank you dah-link for the sweet comments :)

    952 cals on your run? You are nuts in the best possible way!

  14. Fried Cheese?? Never seen it, its not like cheese is healthy in the first place. Imagine frying it, and fried Onion rings.

    My sister Mari and I, clearly have to have that talk again! LOL! :)

  15. 8#'ers with that exercise? Crazy lady! Hope you can carry your purse today! You cease to amaze me! I deem you exercise TV/video queen! But I think I've said that before :)

    I will email you back today! It will come from a different address (no Gmail at work) - look for it!

  16. nice eats mari!!

    ummm i thought I was the only one who was sucked in! it was amazing to see the difference in heidis apperance from 2006 to the last season wow...she looks...interesting

    you are loving those muffins! i am thinking up new recipes and twists on it so be on the look out! I just got bannana nut protein powder! that will be used in them soon!


  17. Good luck with studying babe! All of the food looks seriously awesome. You are making me crave TGIF's...not good...

  18. I definitely missed ya! I've had the biggest craving for onion rings lately!

  19. Target has a produce section? CRAZY! Ours definitely does not.

    Ugh brownie obsession looks so amazing and delicious! I love the oreo madness from there too! But Andy is not a fan of Fridays so we rarely ever go.

  20. Yummy looking brownie obsession. I could see how easy it would be to get sucked into the hills marathon.

  21. how do you figure out how many calories you burn in a work out? i was interested in doing this. i heard somewhere its about 80 cal per mile regardless?

  22. I MISSED YOU!!!!!!! That quesadilla is calling my name. For realZ.

    I love Nike Dri-fit- I wear their tank tops. Oh-so-cute clothes. Gotta look good for my trainer (eeek- did I just confess for the first time that I think he is kind of hot?!)

    WOOOO for protein muffins. Bomb dot com, lady.

  23. hey! you were definitely not the only one catching up on heidi and spencer. hate him. with that said, can't wait till the new season!! wanna see new look!

    i want those onion rings!

  24. Larissa, I use my Polar F6 whenever I workout =)

  25. AHAHAHAAAAA ... yeah, good thing u invested in some dry-fit workout wear ... I needed that laugh Mari, thank u!!! And now I'm also craving some TGIF.
    Oh, btw, Wii Fit is going well .. almost everyday for me! Not more than 30 mins though .. that's as much as I can get with baby B around!

  26. I am going to have to find those "buffalo" nuggets - I am all about the spicy!

    Mari - thought of you again this morning as I finished my 30 minute Yoga AM - especially when the instructor said "Namaste!"

    It's such a great way to start the day - its slow, but you are using your muscles and it just feels . . . good!

    Happy hump day chica!

  27. The fake buffalo wings are my favorite fake meat!! i am also in love with the fake bacon from morningstar farms. SOO GOOD!! i would have been sucked into the hills if i was home, I LOVE THAT SHOW!

  28. funny girl! :) see you soon!
