This Busy Bee

Two words: BUSY BEE.

After getting into a minor car accident (THANK YOU for all your well wishes), watching my friend run her first 1/2 marathon and napping for the 1st time in ages yesterday, the action just did not stop.

Here is what this busy bee has been doing…

Roti Canai (fried flatbread)
Kari Sayur (vegetable curry)
Thai Green Curry Chicken


  • Getting my Halloween candy fix with Peanut M&Ms


  • Being lame on Halloween due to unforeseen circumstances, which resulted in me watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s, responding to reader e-mails and doing some freelance writing
  • Wishing I had gone out for Halloween so I could have debuted my polygamy compound wife costume – complete with black tie-up boots, a long denim dress + ridiculous 2-foot hair
  • Scarfing Oikos Blueberry Greek yog + Clif Honey Graham Z-Bar along with an apple



  • Driving back to Madison in time to make my noon shift at the part-time decorating job
  • Snacking along the way, including a KIND Walnut Date Bar (to die for!) + apple


  • Working for four hours on no sustenance but apple #3 of the day
  • Leaving work and looking for the closest restaurant to eat something – which ended up being a big bowl of Japanese Pan Noodles with Tofu at Noodles & Co.


  • Grocery shopping and trying to spend under $40 (which I accomplished – $39.12 to be exact)
  • Thinking over and over about how great crawling into bed will be tonight

What this busy bee hopes to accomplish tonight…

  • Finish freelance writing
  • Pay some bills
  • Call some old friends
  • Do the dishes (which are 3 days old now…totally gross)
  • Unpack, clean + organize

What this busy bee will ACTUALLY do tonight…

  • Read blogs :)
  • Drink tea

In other news…

Since I confessed my lack of flossing (which many of you owned up to as well), Andrea and I decided it would be a fab idea to have a 30-day flossing challenge this month!  Flossing can add years onto your life Рfor reals!

Who is joining us in making our gums healthy and happy?

Oh my goodness girl! Sounds like you’ve had a hectic past couple of days. I hope you get to accomplish those things and catch up with your old friends! Old friends are sometimes like little re-chargers :)

As for the flossing challenge.. lol I’ll start with brushing my teeth at night. Uuugh that sounds so gross that I don’t do that.. :\ I feel like I should stop talking about this nasty habit of mine ahha!

Ohh, I hate flossing :( I don’t even own floss. Maybe I’ll go get some.
