All We Do Is Win and then Lose

Wow, life has been pretty busy the last week and a half that I haven't even thought about writing a post.  I have been watching football (ugh, Niners lost the NFC Championship), traveling to Maryland and Washington, DC, and embracing a new outlook on cooking.

Let me start by saying, I had an amazing breakfast for the NFC Divisional playoffs at my in-laws house.  My mother-in-law made a crab souffle, bbq'd bacon, fruit salad and bloody mary's.  It was a great way to watch the Niners beat the Panthers.

The next morning, I was off to Maryland for work.  I will save my sights and food for another post.  The week consisted of a lot of work, amazing food and some cold evenings.  We did get to spend each evening in Washington, DC though, which was an awesome, but expensive city.

Fast forward to Friday where I made the long 10 hour trek home.  Followed by a birthday party at the Wet for my lovely maid of honor, Nathalie.  Miss Nathalie turned 28 this year, and had a celebration Friday evening.  I was super tired, but really wanted to see my friends, so we got dolled up and headed out.
Beautiful ladies (minus the birthday girl)

Saturday was spent being lazy after a few errands.  We did see American Hustle, and I loved it.  I loved the story, the twist, the clothes, Christian Bale (he nailed it on his character) and Bradley Cooper's perm.  I would see definitely see it again.

Sunday was awful, ok, it wasn't too bad, except the Niners LOST the NFC Championship.  Worst outcome ever.  Not only did Bowman tear his ACL and MCL, Kap threw two picks (one that ended the game), Sherman went on a crazy, classless rant and Gore broke his hand.  Now I am rooting for the Broncos.  I love Peyton Manning (just him as a player and person), and I can't wait to see them roll over the Seahawks defense (#1 offense vs. #1 defense).  My dad is a Seahawks fan, so there was lots of smack talk between us this weekend.  I also told him pre-game, should the Seahawks win, don't expect to hear from me for a week.  Guess who is still going strong?  Haha.

Monday we made our famous (well I think it is famous) spaghetti sauce.  That baby simmered all day and it was beyond amazing.  We watched mindless tv, cooked and hit the gym.  So proud of us for trekking it out to the South side of town to go to the gym on a day off.

Speaking of gym, I was lazy during the holidays.  I ate way too much (it was worth it) and didn't work out enough.  I am talking a went a week or two without any gym, and when I did go, it was once a week.  Shame, shame.  But last week I went full force while in Maryland/DC, even working out twice a day on two different days.  Here's to getting my workout back on.

Speaking again, on being healthy, we are trying to go to the grocery store weekly, buy enough meals for breakfast and lunch daily, plus dinners for 5 to 6 days a week  Sometimes we are good and eat in 4 days a week, but lately, it is once or twice a week.  Mainly, due to work travel and the holidays, but we are in full force budget and health mode.  Here's to hoping it sticks.
That catches you all up on my life the last few weeks.  I hope to get a post up on my DC fun.  But it isn't that long because I didn't get to do much other than eat dinner and walk around at 9 pm one night to see some sights, but it was still worth it.
