Couldn’t Wait

Hey guys! How are ya??

Sorry I’m so late posting today! We got into Orlando and my aunt, cousin and I went to Wizzle, 2 Targets, Best Buy, Publix and are getting ready for my cousin’s bday celebration at Urban Flats. I’m so, so glad ya’ll liked to Fashion Friday post– I’ll keep ‘em coming 😀 I already have an idea for next week and am going to fellow bloggers each week to help me with the pics 🙂

In honor of today’s Fashion Friday pick, I’m wearing another floral skirt:


Also from Express, also now on clearance, I’m also punching myself in the face for not waiting two weeks to buy it.. but I had to have it 😉

So before we got on the road, the pilot had one request:

Homemade Horchata


This isn’t the healthy Gina brown rice/Stevia version. This is the real thang- white rice, white sugar, and the pilot packed it up in a Nalgene to drink on the way to Orlando 😀

Viesa wanted to ride on the suitcase, but we didn’t let her 😉



The pups were very happy in the back of the pilot’s Jeep.


Lunch was at Panera. I chose a Mediterranean Veggie sandwich on whole grain with no cheese.


+ a plain veggie salad:


It was perfection 🙂

We’re off to party at Urban Flats. See ya in the morning with a re-cap!

    my pup is the same way… he’ll get IN my suitcase as I’m packing it… and he jumps all over the car…

    and I AM the same way with clothes… what if my size or the one I want is GONE by the sale? nope, I’m getting it now… 😉

  17. Jackie (Peaces of Earth) on July 3, 2010 at 12:09 am

    Your pups are absolutely adorable!! I’m so happy for you that the pilot is home. I can’t imagine how hard that would be!

  18. SuccessfullySlim on July 3, 2010 at 1:47 am

    Perfect way to grab a healthy meal when you’re on the road! Yum!

  19. caronae on July 3, 2010 at 2:53 am

    Have fun in Orlando! Love horchata! I had no idea it could be made easily either!

  20. Emma on July 3, 2010 at 4:26 am

    I don’t know with 100% certainty about Express in particular, but most stores will honor a sale price if you bring in your receipt showing you paid full price. The time-frame is usually somewhere between 7-30 days and varies by store. It might be worth a look, you could get enough money back to buy another flowery skirt!

    • Fitnessista on July 3, 2010 at 12:06 pm

      good to know, thank you!

  21. kimberley on July 3, 2010 at 5:15 am

    Cute skirt! I don’t know if they still do this, but when I worked at Express back in college they had a 14 day price adjustment policy. If you buy something and it goes on sale within 14 days you can take your receipt in for a refund of the difference.

  22. Amy M on July 3, 2010 at 7:16 am

    I just read your cousins blog (Busted Plumbing). GREAT blog. I also have PCOS. And blogging talent must run in the family because you both have very witty and entertaining writing styles. 🙂 Thank you for sharing the link.

    PS: Can you do a post one day with advice for very overweight readers? I a sure I am not the only one with well over 50 lbs to lose! Sometimes it seems so daunting. Thanks.

    • Fitnessista on July 3, 2010 at 12:06 pm

      hey amy,
      i’m so glad you like kate’s blog- she’s amazing 🙂
      that’s an excellent idea, maybe for a reader’s request next week??

  23. Jo on July 3, 2010 at 7:27 am

    love love love that skirt!

  24. Elise on July 3, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Hey Gina!

    If you are going to eat something that boring I’m afraid we’ll need pictures of the pilots food as well. If he accidentally gets in said pic I’m sure no one will complain =D Ha ha! Have a great Saturday!

    • Fitnessista on July 3, 2010 at 12:03 pm

  28. Marissa on July 3, 2010 at 10:18 am
