Insomniac

You all had some great sounding dinners last night! From Jenna and Lauren’s soup and grilled cheese to Caroline’s stuffed squash, you all provide me with such great ideas/inspirations!!

After I taught Attack last night(Tuesday), I came home and had to do lots of work. I ended up staying up until around 11:30 finishing up. Today was another crazy/busy day! After working hard without a break for 9 hours, I left work and came home to fit in a run. I did a quick just over 6 mile run in the sunshine:

...showered, squeezed in some dinner (Acorn squash topped with honey, pinto beans, peppers, and an apple with lots of un-pictured nut butter ;)):

and then got right back to work! I finished around 11 and then figured, while I'm up, I'll do some house work! I did some ironing and vacuuming (so glad Josh can sleep through pretty much anything ;)) and just now sat down to blog!
Tomorrow I am taking a day off from working out, as my Body Pump training starts on Friday (YIKES!). I am looking forward to some afternoon napping. Do you have any fun weekend plans?

Haha can you believe I'm up this late reading your blog!? I'm about to go to sleep, I swear! Unpictured nut butter=YUM

Acorn squash looks perfectly cooked!

Oooh! It IS getting close to the weekend, huh? I LIVE for my weekends. I love reading all of your posts! They inspire me.
I think this weekend I'm going to make some squash. Yours looks so yummy!

We are packing up for the long drive to Northern Ohio to visit some friends who are expecting soon. They started "trying" for their first child after the first time we took Snuffy to visit.

Lauren said...

I am so touched that my dinner stood out for you! I wish I could have had you over to join me for it though. Someday right?!?! :)

Wow, girl you amaze me! How in the world are you able to stay up and work so late? If I am not in bed by 9:30pm I am one cranky girl. Even on the weekends, 10pm is pushing it. ;)

Have a great day friend.

Going to a new juice/salad/sandwich/wrap cafe this weekend and we also found a new park to walk in...can't wait!

Enjoy!

Molly said...

Hmmm....weekends are full of studying and paper-writing for me, but I will take a couple breaks for running and going to lunch with some family.
Today is my day off...so weird to "sleep in"!
As usualy, acorn squash looks awesome.

I'm so glad it's already Thursday! Woo!! I have a bloggy meet-up dinner tomorrow night, a birthday party Saturday and a baby shower sunday - should be a fun family- and friend-filled weekend!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Wow--housework at 11?! I wish I was that ambitious :-)

Julie said...

enjoyyy your day off! sounds like you totally needed it after a long stressful day.

haha so funny that Josh can sleep through anything. That must make blow drying your hair a piece of cake if you have to do it in the morning and he's still awake!

Love that squash... I have one in my pantry waiting to be cooked up, too!

I'm going to Minnesota to visit my grandparents this weekend.

Hope you get some rest!

Britt said...

Such a busy bee you are! Cleaning at 11pm... meanwhile I was parked on the sofa watching the game. Yummy dinner!

Not quite sure what we are up to this weekend. I see lots of leaf bagging in my future though, our yard is covered! We may go to a charity ball thing though.... which would be fun to dress up for, but not sure about tickets yet.

Stephanie @ cookinfanatic said...

Hey hey girlie, sounds like someone had a productive night! ;) This weekend we have a party to go to Saturday but that's about it... need some rest after college friend extravaganza last weekend! Happy Thursday!

Leah @ L4L said...

This weekend, we plan to clean the house from top to bottom and get rid of a bunch of crap. Winter cleaning, if you will!

Holly said...

I LOVE naps!!! I still think we should institute an adult nap time every afternoon - even a 15 minute one does me good. Good luck with the Body Pump training tomorrow...it sounds intense!

This weekend I'm going to study up a storm, but I'm most excited about going to the Colts game on Sunday!!

Abby (Abbys Vegan Eats) said...

LOVELY din din.. totally something I would put together. Your squash is perfectly cooked.. Aweosme. I always undercook mine bc Im impatient. lol

No crazy weekend plans yet.. we are boring. Perhaps Ill clean and do laundry. I know fun fun. At least its 2 days off work!!

Krista said...

You've been BUSY! What a great power-you-through meal, though.

We've got back to back hockey games this weekend and one practice. I think I'm turning into a rink bunny!! ;) I do have some fun shopping planned with my #1 girl Friday night, though...

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) said...

I'm going to San Francisco for the Foodbuzz festival this weekend! YAY!

I want to try acorn squash with honey. I made stuffed acorn squash last night and didn't love it...I need to perfect my recipe.

Yum Yucky said...

I'm so wanting an apple right now. But I forgot to bring one. Darn.

Nicci@NiftyEats said...

I hate when I cant get to sleep. have fun at your training!

biz319 said...

Wow, you were a busy beaver last night!

We have NOTHING planned this weekend and I love it when that happens.

It's supposed to be gorgeous in the midwest - highs near 70! We plan on doing a lot of raking, definitely going to grill and probably have a bon fire in the back yard - heaven!

Dawn Dishes It Out said...

The squash looked great especially with the beans!! Tomorrow night we are having a Pinto Bean Dish, can't wait ... love 'em

Holly said...

Rose said...

Afternoon napping sounds delightful. :)

This weekend I'm going to my cousin's baby shower in Ohio. Although I'm not excited to travel for the 2nd weekend in a row, I'm totally stoked to see her pregnant belly! I haven't seen her pregnant yet!

Enjoy your nap! That sounds heavenly right about now!

Angharad said...

You are one busy bee lady! Way to go! I also like to get everything in the world done when I'm busy - I thrive on a hectic schedule! It's when I have free time that I'm useless!

I need more squash in my life! thanks for reminding me!

Shannon said...

Hi, found you through No-Meat Athlete's site where we both agreed Giada's body is freakishly small. ;) Saw your comment about body pump. Do you know who your instructor is? A friend of mine's wife teaches Body Pump around the nation - her name is Susan Laney. Just wondered if she might be teaching your course?
