The YES Man

Spring break throwback picture, much? I went there.

Life is about breaking the mold, trying different things, meeting new people, right? Well for the longest time I have had trouble changing up my routine. I would eat the same foods at the same times and work out like a fiend (you wouldn't want to be around me if I missed a gym-sesh). This got me no-where. Read that again, NO WHERE! I was miserable and I was missing out on fun things I can't even begin to ponder (fancy college-grad word). I made a conscious choice recently (as of almost a week now) to be somewhat like the YES MAN. You know the Yes Man? Well, more like Jim Carey's character in the Yes Man. So when someone asks me to do something fun (*disclaimer: I would never do anything that would lead me to harm and/or injure myself*), I will just do it. Get my Nike reference? Oh well.

With all that said, I'm packing up my bags (okay, more like one overnight bag) and heading to Massachusetts for the night. I'm driving up for a wedding with my friend Chris. Do you know Chris? Let me introduce you...he has a blog too (if you like reading about sports and rants!) I know, shameless plugging of his least his captions are funny. Not hooked, girls? Chris, "dis (blog) is for ladies!" Anyone get my John Tucker Must Die reference? Probably not, it sounded pretty good when I said it in my head...what a rant this post is turning into...

Anyway, I'm heading off soon-ish but I need to pack some snacks first. Hello, I am embarking on a 3+ hour drive. I'm thinking a bag of organic carrots and a super duper Pink Lady apple from Trader Joe's and some Cinnamon Chex (gluten free) because a girl has got to get her crunch on! Oh and some chocolate chips...because I want what I want. Anyone have trouble packing food for a road trip during odd hours? I'm missing lunch :( but it will be worth it--drinking and dancing all night, woo-hoo!

And a happy early Father's Day to my Papa.
Love You!

Have a great weekend y'all!
