oh hello friends.

I’m in a great mood. Why?  I’m killin’ it this week.  Productivity makes me happyyy.  

All the fun things I’ve accomplished since Monday: 

On the workout front – I had a great run, spent some time shredding with Jillian (that has left me fairly sore), broke out my yoga dvd last night (YES, I did yoga fiiinally), and this morning, I got my ass out of bed to get in 3.5 miles before work. That my friends.. was tough, real tough.

I made lots of food – turkey meatloaf & sweet potatoes, Mama Pea’s spanish quinoa, and prepped tofu dippers for who knows when.  I was planning on having them last night, but realized I had forgotten that whole marinate step. So marinate they did. So, we’ll ignore the fact that I had pita chips & cottage cheese for dinner instead. 

Actually let’s not.

Has anyone else tried these?  Obsessed.  I need to stop buying them, but you should probably start.  

What else did I do this week?
grocery shopping
restocked my snack drawer at work – obviously critical..
went out for a drink –  just one. oh hello self-control, nice to see you again
blogged daily
painted my nails
cleaned my apt

not bad.

Tonight, I have a cooking date with the lovely Christina & maybe drinks with sister & bro-in-law. delightful. 

I’m ready for the weekend. Now where can I get one of these?

Last night was the Samuel Adams Octoberfest Preview. Since tickets for the all day event were sold out, my friend Jackie & I got tickets to the Preview Reception.  Lots of beer, games, hats, music – the full event must be seriously intense, if this was the preview. 😉

They had sooo many beers on tap. I didn’t realize there are so many kinds of Sam. Must try more of them.

obviously, we learned lots. I look ridiculous in this hat.

Beer probably wasn’t the best plan before my 6 miler today, but it was fun.

Serious procrastination going on right now. 🙂

Mass Brewers Fest

Last night, I went to the Mass Brewers Fest.  It was an excellent event at a great venue full of local brewers with so many fun beers to try.

I took the longest route possible to get there. so South Station on my walk. how pretty is this on the Seaport Blvd Bridge.

I could’ve taken tons more pictures but was busy enjoying friends and new beers.

oh hi friends.

I would say my favorites were the UFO Pumpkin Ale, Cambridge Brewing Company Mind Left Body (I got it for the name:)), and the Cape Ann Brewing Company Tea Party.

There were so many good ones.

I completely missed Cape Cod Beer though.  Disappointed.

Given their proximity to my parents & the less than stellar weather forecast, may have to check that out this weekend. 🙂

Overall, great night.
