1. A recent conversation between  me and Q:
me:  do you like this?
don’t look at the price
just the dress
i have a gift certificate
Quincy:  yes, very cute.
20 minutes later….
Quincy:  PS do you just say you have a gift certificate so I won’t say I like it because of the price?
Because you either have more gift certificates than anyone I know or this is some elaborate scheme
me:  Wow. This is scary. You know me so well.
Quincy:  It is a scheme!!!!
Is it just me or does everyone fib just a little bit when it comes to shopping?
2. Today’s lunch was superb. Pineapple chicken salad and cilantro rice and beans.
3.  So was today’s desert…  vanilla bean cupcakes with coconut frosting thanks to Gaby:
4. Speaking of dessert… I’ve been following the couch to 10K running program for the past 2 months and it’s kicking my butt. I love it since I turn it on, put on my music and it just tells me what to do, but it’s HARD work. I’m the girl that walks in to the gym with and iPod full of music, 3 magazines and anything else that can distract me while I’m running. It’s the only way I can get it done.
5. I try not to talk about my job much, but I really have the best job in the world. I get to hang out with this girl all day and she constantly is making me laugh. Tonight’s the premiere of her new show Fashion Star. It’s SO good and I hope everyone watches it tonight at 9:30PM on NBC. Gaby is cooking a huge chili feast featuring her famous slutty brownies (my favorites).
6. Outfit today:
Heading out to go watch Biggest Loser and Fashion Star! Hope everyone is having a great night!

Oh, Koko I LOVE that dress!!! Now is the time to buy it! Trust me, after you have kids (which I know isn’t soon) you’ll be spending ALL your money on them to make them look good….ha ha :) Now is your time!

First, i love that convo — totally sounds like something I would have said when I was dating my hubs. Now our money is combined, so no secrets. haha

Second, you should totally talk about your job more!

Lastly, I’m doing the Couch to 5k and I hate running too. Two things that have helped – awesome podcats (try Joy the Baker) and running with my neighbor or a friend. Good luck on the 10k!

Thank you for the podcast suggestion!! And the running with a friend (Is it weird I’m sort of embarrassed to because of my speed?)

I am the same way! I am the slowest runner ever, sometimes I feel like I can walk faster. I actually bailed on my neighbor a few times before we actually went on a run. I just let her know that I was slow, but she was just excited to have someone to run with. It’s been much better than I thought. So I say just go for it! If I was closer than an hour or two to you, I would totally run with you!
