Gift with Purchase

Filed under: Just Life,Random — Tags: , — zdubb @ 12:26 pm

So I recently had someone ask me about my watch…

Him: What kind of watch is that?
Me: It’s a Michael Kors.
Him: Was it a free gift with purchase or something? Doesn’t Michael Kors make fragrance?
Me: **evil sideeye**

Lately I have been obsessed with these pins that I found on sale at J. Crew. I usually load them on but this day the monkey was hanging out alone.

Salad so yummy

So I found a recipe on VeggieNumNum to use up some of the tatsoi and pak choi that I had left over. It was so yummy!

Proud CSA

So I finally subscribed to a CSA. I couldn’t be happier about it!

Just look at my bounty! This is the first time I will use tatsoi, pak choi, and rainbow chard. Everything else I’m familiar with. This was from last week, but I will update this week’s share!

Neglected

Filed under: Just Life,Procrastinating — Tags: , , — zdubb @ 9:09 am

I feel awful for neglecting my blog for so long. I don’t have a clue if anyone is reading, but I sort of like it that way…

Nothing exciting is going on in my world.

Yesterday I tried out a local yoga studio that was celebrating it’s 1 year anniversary. They had a free outdoor music power flow class. Although I haven’t done yoga in almost 2 years, I convinced myself that it was a good idea.
::: insert major eyeroll :::
I almost died! Lol. The class was a great workout and I am all the way out of shape. You do the math!
Everyone was really nice though, so I’m actually thinking of going back.

Now to practice my downward dog…

Singles Event!

meet and compete is hosting a singles event in the Raleigh Durham Area!

$25 registration fee….

Rock-n-Bowl/Speed Dating/Singles Mingle (ages 20s & 30s)

WHEN: Mon. Feb. 28th, 2011,  7:30p-10:30p

WHAT: We’re combining a Rock-n-Bowl Party, a Speed Dating Event, and a Singles Mingle into what may be our best Singles Event ever!

WHERE: SPARIANS – The NEW upscale bowling boutique at North Hills!

PLEASE NOTE- this event is OPEN to the public. As with any of our social events, EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

IMAGINE a Rock-n-Bowl Party in the private suites of the swankiest bowling boutique you’ve ever seen.  Plush couches, designer finishes, and large flat screens everywhere.  Now, imagine everybody is single and you rotate teams to mix and mingle with other single folks and you have
THE BEST TIME!

Now, IMAGINE you then rotate from the bowling to a speed dating event, where you get
mini-dates with a completely different group of singles. Table numbers and your personal table assignments make the mini-date process a no-brainer so you just focus on making friends and having fun. While the gals stay at the same table, the guys will follow their assigned schedule to move table to table. Your host will ring a bell indicating it’s time to move to your next session. At the start of each introduction you will write in the name and ID number of each person you meet on your matchcard and when time is called, you’ll confidentially rate your date with a yes if you would like to see them again (not walk down the isle…just see them again!). Submit your matches at the end of the Speed Dating portion of the evening, and we’ll take care of the rest!

Now, IMAGINE you then rotate to a Singles Mingle with another completely different group of singles.  We’ll play a few scavenger hunt/get-to-know-ya games for prizes and we’ll also be raffling away pairs of Carolina Hurricanes tickets!

And finally, just for fun, we’ll have an e-Cupid station where you can send secret admirer texts – anonymously – to other party attendees!

PLUS, when it’s all over, if you still feel like mingling, Sparians has an incredible lounge for our attendees to sip a few additional cocktails, if you like.
