good morning peanut butter cups. i am smack in the middle of the most delightful girls' weekend. i figured i'd bring back saturday stats as inspired by alex, so here is my life by the numbers right now:
0 - slices of challah i have left. the good news for all of you is that i can now stop posting about it because i won't have any more to eat. if this previous weeks consumption of 3 slices/day is any indication, i think it's pretty clear i loved it. i suppose this number could also be 1 - loaves of challah i ate on my own this week.

1 - number of times i've rapped kanye's "golddigger" aloud during a spin class in my life. on thursday night i went to a meetup for dc fitness bloggers (allegedly i consider myself one of these - or i did when i decided to jump onto this bandwagon when i saw anne tweet about it) at revolve, a cycle studio in clarendon. this spin class was a "body ride" style class, which included about a 35 minute spin session followed by an upper body workout on the bike (using little weights that were hanging on everyone's bike) before cooling down. i loved the class and would definitely love to take another class at revolve. francina taught a badass class and i am so glad i went. it is always fun to meet other bloggers from the area, and though i missed my a team, they were there in spirit when we kicked off the ride with thrift shop.
24 - ounces in the cup of coffee i plan on consuming this morning on my coffee date with alex and allison. it pains me to go more than a week without a coffee date with these girls and last week was basically one big jealous fest over in my hood because i couldn't hang out with them (and really i was super pissed i didn't get to witness alex walking into a fire hydrant - hoping for a repeat today).
125 - this is an approximation, but it's roughly the number of times i have driven past this view so far this school year. sometimes i forget how beautiful dc is and then i am struck by it when i drive right past the monuments. there are a lot of things i don't love about washington but it really is one of the most beautiful and cleanest cities i've ever been in.
4 - number of food items i stole from students this week. what can i say, just another of the unexpected perks of being a teacher.
4 - number of girls trying to sleep in one queen bed tonight. not really, we'll probably spread out, but jess, richard, lauren and i are having a slumber party while jess' husband is out of town and i couldn't be more excited. we're kicking off the evening with dinner and drinks at rio, our favorite mexican place (i'm right on track for my mexican once a week 2013 goal, in case anyone was wondering) and following it up with movies and girl talk then tomorrow we're going to get manicures and just be girly all day. should be glorious.
a million - number of times i now want to cook fish in parchment paper. this was so easy! i'm always so afraid of cooking fish but i looked up how to bake salmon in parchment paper and it really was as easy as it seemed. the fish was cooked perfectly and i felt like a fancy success when just and rebs were over for dinner wednesday night.
hope your weekends are half as enjoyable as mine is shaping up to be!
