Monday Mix Tape - tight jeans edition

My jeans are a little tight this morning and I'm not going to ignore that even though they just came out of the dryer. I'm blaming it on the amount of food and drink I consumed this weekend.

Saturday night I made paella for the first time and I have to say it turned out amazing. It would have been easier with a bigger stove and a range hood that could handle the steam but it was really fun to make. I ate A LOT of it. I took a picture but forgot my camera cord so I will try to post it tomorrow.

Yesterday I put my mad sewing skillz to the test to help my sister with her Halloween costume. She participates in a haunted house for charity every year and is going to be in a creepy doll scene. We're sewing her a doll dress that will eventually be tea stained to look old. I haven't sewn with a pattern in years and it was a challenge at first but it all came flooding back. My mother taught me how to sew probably as early as 8 years old. I enjoyed every minute of it yesterday and need to think of some more sewing projects as it's a great distraction from food!

That afternoon, I had dogs all over me. There is nothing better. There were incredibly tiny ones and incredibly huge ones. Some were in costumes and it was hilarious. What a feel good fun day all around. Partially brought on by 2 shots of tequila and 2 beers. What can I say, I've been doing people so many favors lately, everyone is buying me drinks. I can honestly say though that I've been doing a great job of not drinking unless there is a reason. Sometimes I go 2 weeks without a drop so I allow myself an occasional party day.

That was kind of a boring mix-tape this Monday! It's going to be a busy week but now that I'm working out in the mornings, I feel like I get more accomplished throughout the day. I have (a little) more energy and more time with less guilt after work. Looking forward to Friday already though!

Have a great week everyone!
