Monday Motivation: You can be Jealous now

Love sees sharply, hatred sees even more sharp, but Jealousy sees the sharpest for it is love and hate at the same time.
~Arab Proverb

Talk about motivation. I am someone definitely motivated by food. These fantastic veggies made their way into my tortilla soup last night. Ignore the blueberries, they were just hanging out. If you like squash, you have to try Chayote, it's my favorite squash for soups.
The soup was topped with fried corn tortilla slices, fresh slices of avocado and shredded cheese. Delicious! To top it off, my husband made barbacoa style beef for shredded beef street tacos.
This week I get to look forward to a short 4 day work week and a girls weekend. Super Hubby and the boys head to Lake Tahoe for Superbowl weekend each year and the wives usually do a girly something. This year a bunch are going on a 3 day cruise to Mexico. We have done this trip before and once was enough for me. Since I am not going to gain 17 pounds on a boat with 24 hour buffet, I thought I'd plan something a little more my speed. A couple girlfriends and I are doing the following:
  • Saturday:
    • 9:00am Trail Run
    • lunch
    • head to quiet cabin in the foothills
    • 4:00pm Massages and maybe pedicures
    • 7:00pm Dinner at a super fancy restaurant
    • Afterward we will nibble on See's chocolate and gab like teenagers
  • Sunday:
    • Wine Tasting in the foothills
Really it doesn't get much better than this for me. I love trail running, massages, gourmet food and wine. To get it all in one weekend completely rocks!

Why I Kick A$$: Um, hello the perfect weekend above was planned by yours truly. 
Thankful Three
  1. For Cold Days and Hot Soup
  2. For Quiet time
  3. For fun things to look forward to

Okay, I am super jealous of your upcoming weekend. Of course, my weekend is going to be pretty good as well. I am going skiing on Saturday and then Sunday is the big game and we are having friends over to watch the Steelers kick arse!
