Don't Stop Till You Get Enough




I think this is my absolute favorite top. I love the brightness of it. Brightness is what was needed this rainy morning. Don't get me wrong. I was so happy to see the much-needed-rain, but I still wanted a little brightness in my day. Here's the whole outfit...

Green top - Banana Republic
V pencil skirt - Anthropologie
Black peeps - Rack Room

I have been a cooking mood lately. Last night I was in the mood for Mexican food. I found a simple, yet great recipe for spinach enchiladas at All Recipes. Of course I did a little altering to the dish.
  1. I used lowfat greek yogurt instead of the sour cream.
  2. I added chicken. I boiled 2 chicken breast, shredded them, and then mixed it in the yogurt mixture.
  3. I added chopped onions and also mixed in the sauce.
  4. The spinach is rolled in each enchilada, but also added to the top.

Here is the finished product. I served it with a side of black bean mash. Yummers!
Today's workout was 30 minutes of resistance training focused on my legs (I did my upper body the day before) and cardio on the treadmill. I'm not sure what was up, but I had so much energy today. I even bounced on the Bosu Ball when I got home. Maybe it was the MJ playlist that kept me movin' and groovin'... Like he says, "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough". I felt it was only right to pay tribute in my own way.

Okay, I'll admit it... I watched the MJ memorial service via webcast today. V and my other girlfriends had e-mails flying throughout the program. I thought it was a moving service and I was brought to tears when his daughter spoke. Despite the many questions that revolved around his life, he was so talented. His music always bring me fond memories of my 80's childhood.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web. I hope you have a wonderful day!

You look so skinny! And I love this top, too...

BTW there is no other artist AND humanitarian on earth like MJ, so I'm hoping that all of the pessimists who choose to focus on the negativity wake up and realize the contributions he made to society. There is nothing wrong with watching his Memorial; he deserved to be honored as he was.

Thanks so much everyone. Well even though I love to hear that I look so slim. I think my photo might be playing a little trick to the eye. It is a very flattering outfit, but I just don't think I'm as slim as this picture makes us believe.
