I hope your breakfast this morning was delicious. How’s that for some early morning well-wishes? I feel like I often say things like, “I hope your day is off to a good start,” but I’m pretty sure that eating a delicious breakfast is synonymous with beginning the day on a good note, so it works!
Speaking of good breakfasts, I filled my plate with my latest favorite!
My morning meal included two toasted Van’s multigrain waffles topped with a combination of ricotta cheese and cottage cheese, freshly sliced strawberries (mega sale on strawberries at Publix!) and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
Served with a cup of coffee to get my brain going.
Today’s workout was the same workout I completed last week through the Best Body Boot Camp program, only this time the workout had me doing four sets of each superset rather than three.
Last time I didn’t use heavy enough weights and didn’t feel particularly challenged, so this time I made sure to grab weights that were better suited to my abilities.
Heavier weights coupled with an additional set of every superset made the workout a great one! It was a total-body workout that went by fast and challenged me all over.
Cruise Formal Night Theme: America
As you may remember, in about a month, Ryan and I are joining a group of our friends on a short cruise to the Bahamas.
We all went on a cruise together back in September 2009 (right before I started blogging!) and have a tradition on formal night. We dress up in ridiculous (yet still formal) outfits.
Last cruise we went with an ‘80s formal theme.
I still remember walking behind these two women who were walking right behind Ryan and our friend Daniel. I heard them whisper to each other, “Those guys are cute… but there’s just something off with their style.”
You see, the point is to dress up formally without wearing a legitimate costume so that if you’re spotted alone on the cruise, someone might actually think you seriously lack style and think that what you’re wearing is fabulous (which it is).
When I asked you guys for your advice on a theme for this year, you gave me some of the BEST ideas and my friends and I had a great time weighing our options.
Well, a theme has been selected!
AMERICA – A vision of red, white and blue!
We plan to showcase our pride for our country by dressing up in over-the-top formal attire that must be only red, white and blue.
We’ve also put into place a “checks and balances” system where every cruiser must run their formal outfit by their roommate for approval.
This is to ensure someone doesn’t select a dress like this…
When they should really be selecting something like this…
If you have any advice on where I might be able to nab some fantastically patriotic apparel, please share!
