my less serious day: hungover

Today was my dog's first day in doggie day care. When she finally got home she walked in, stumbled to her food bowl, voraciously drank a bowl of water, and crashed in the corner without moving for the entire night. She wouldn't even lift her head when I called her name. Reminded me of coming home in college after a full night of partying. 

Doggie hangover, indeed.

Dress (worn as skirt): J Crew outlet; top: Loft; belt: Anthropologie; pumps: Tsubos.


This morning I hit my at-home stationary bike for a 35-minute ramp interval ride followed by a short walk. After work I hit the gym for a 60-minute Body Pump class.


Breakfast was a bowl (x2) of Post Shredded Wheat, Quaker Whole Hearts, a banana, and cow's milk. Can you spy a heart?

Lunch was a spinach salad topped with cucumbers, grape tomatoes, carrots, sunflower seeds, and cottage cheese with a side of carrots sticks and peanut butter.

My afternoon snack was homemade peanut butter granola and a Gala apple.

Dinner was leftover polenta, a runny egg, 1/2 avocado and a zucchini and grape tomato saute.

Dessert was dulce de leche pudding and whipped cream.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Wednesday, October 24. 


  1. Aww, this must have been such an exciting day in the life of your dog! What's her name and how old is she?

    Your outfit looks great once again! Don't you just love how a belt can make a shirt/dress more elegant? I've been wearing such combinations a lot lately.

  2. Aww, happy pup. Whenever mine goes to the dog park, she suddenly gets lazy and plops down in the dirt. Totally NOT what I brought you here to do, but ooookayyy....

  3. Cute outfit! And happy dog, I hope. At least tired dog

  4. i need to try polenta, I keep hearing such great things about it. my dog was always the same way after doggie day care. it wiped her out!

  5. How do you do your over-easy eggs so perfectly? I must know!

  6. Once again, your meals leave my stomach grumbling!!!


  7. Sounds like your dog had a pretty awesome day. I seriously need to look into doggie daycare because my pooch has waaaaay too much energy. She's 9 and she still acts like she's 6 months old. The only thing is that she doesn't really play nice with others =\

  8. I love the top with the belt! You look so chic! And what are they giving your pup in doggy daycare to make her hungover???

  9. Everything looks delicious! Love your perfectly fried egg! And that belt is too cute!

    Poor pooped pup! I hear those first few days in doggie daycare can be doozies! Whew, how's THAT for some alliteration? ;) Lol
