BYOS(Bring Your Own Shovel)

I love that Regina Spektor song! I'm listening to it as I type, and smiling all the time. So clever and funny and WHO would think of that? I love her. I'm on a youtube kick at the moment, mostly involving Regina Spektor. I only recently came upon her music and I really really like it.

Yesterday was a pretty good day, aside from some minor setbacks. I got to sleep in, which surprisingly I don't do very often(I hate being asleep and home alone, and I'm home alone almost everyday). Then my mom and I went to my favorite little restaurant downtown called Pastabilities and it was soooooo delicious! Unbelievable. I got this pasta salad thing with blue cheese, walnuts, some amazing tasting sauce, and red and yellow pepper slices. Oh, and a side of fruit. Why is it that the purple grapes taste better than the green ones? I don't know either.
After that I had a doctors appointment for my yearly checkup. Since last year, I've lost nearly 20 pounds! The best part is that I didn't do anything to get rid of it!! It just came off :D It went very well.
After that we went to see the movie Julie&Julia. I adore that movie. Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci really were were Julia and Paul Child. Amy Adams were also really great. The whole movie was just really charming and cute. I can't wait til the DVD comes out!


  1. Oh I love R. Spektor! Here songs are so unique and beautiful.

    That dish you had sounds delicous. I fancy bleu cheese entirely too much.

    I loved Julie & Julia too! I want to read the book now. Stanley Tucci was superb! Such a change from his role in The Devil Wears Prada.

    Congrats on having a good checkup. It's healthy that you lost weight without doing some crazy diet but just naturally.

  2. i've never heard that regina spektor song - i'll deff look it up! congratulations on your weight loss. i like how you said "it just came off" that's great!

  3. I am mildly obsessed with Regina Spektor lately! She always resonated with me but especially now I find myself craving her more and more!

  4. Regina Spektor is just too awesome to be true. This was a great post!
