Happy Veterans' Day to you all! today we honor all US veterans and victims of all wars.
i couldn't help but to stop by TJ's this past friday, you know, since i was in the area and all.
i was greeted with all things FALL! the smell of Fall, the look of Fall, the taste of Fall. the warm apple cider and pumpkin pie samples were the icing on the cake. there was no cake though; i looked.
i came out with a handful of specialty items:
- TJ's reduced guilt popcorn
- Envirokids Peanut Butter Panda Puffs
- Fig Spread
- TJ's 0% greek yogurt
saturday, my sorority sisters and i attended our very first South Eastern Regional Conference for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated!
attendance was outstanding - we were everywhere! successful event indeed.
we are on a budget (especially with the holidays coming up) so my debit card was restricted from buying any paraphernalia this time.
and the food was great :lol:. of course it was great- the conference was held on my alma mater's campus. GO COOGS! we had lightly breaded & butterflied chicken breast with a lemon caper sauce, yellow rice, carrots, green beans, and a wheat roll. a spinach salad preceded our meal, but i couldn't wait yall.
on sunday we hit up early service at church as usual. man daylight savings time has been my saving grace this past week! i've gotten more rest than i have all year. i've been popping up an hour earlier than usual so i've been able to get more stuff done. i didn't want to exercise at ALL yesterday but since i skipped saturday (i crashed when i got home after the conference) i had to get on out there.
so i did. 1 hour of walking/jogging/running in my neighborhood, 3 sets of walking forward & back lunges down the side-walk and i called it quits. something IS better than nothing! thank you to my Instagram #fitfam for the motivation. never fails.
are you off today!? and are you staying in town for Thanksgiving or going to visit family this year?
