where i spend my day

hope you guys had a lovely weekend - i don't know about you but the weather in MD was gorgeous... i just HOPE that it stays like this for our vacation, which as of today is only 13 days away... god, it can't get here soon enough... anyway, saturday was fun - i got my haircut (very short) and then spent the day w/my mom yard saling... i'm wearing one of my big purchases as we speak: a brand-new, banana republic pencil skirt, with the tags still on --> only 50 cents! from there, we stopped by to see my brother and his g/f and then grabbed some dinner... saturday night, i stayed home and watched both the redskins game (GO SKINS!) and the olympics - i think i may have shed a tear when michael phelps won his last gold medal... how exciting! :o)

yesterday, i had a nice sleep-in considering i had not one, not two, but all THREE cats at my apartment... at one point, though for not very long, they were all on my bed which was very cute... later in the day, i headed over to eric's and we watched some of the race, checked on the garden, made dinner, watched 2 episodes of 'long way down', and then watched 'the notebook'... man, i forgot what a tear-jerker of a movie that was! even eric wiped away a few... ;o)

work was busy today - got another research pub to work on so most of the day was spent formatting charts and tables... i did make a point to get to the gym and had a good 30-minute workout on the elliptical so at least i gave my eyes a break... i'm in the process of sauteing some chicken for my salads this week and then it's off to watch some of the olympics...

anyhoo, thought i'd share some pics of our yummy dinner last night, my walk to work this morning, and what my office looks like... since i've been blogging for over 3 years, i figured some of you may be curious to see where i spend my days... enjoy! :o)

pizza with homemade sauce and veggies/herbs from our garden


eric's contribution to dinner


DC is the first city in the US to have the SmartBikes ($40/year and you can use them for 3-hours a day)

this is my office door - can you tell i like cats?


this is my desk - notice the organized but cluttered bulletin board

Love the hair! You look amazing.

Dinner looks too good to be true. I'm drolling on my keyboard at work. How embarassing.

GREAT pics- that pizza looks yummy! And your office is so organized and clean- almost makes me want to tidy mine up.....almost ;)

Three kitties on the bed sounds like heaven to me, so relaxing (as long as they are sleeping and not fighting).

I adore your hair, it's so cute!
Your office is so full of personality!! It's great, makes me want to decorate mine a little more, it's so blah..lol
