Hello and Happy Friday!
After sitting in rush hour traffic forever last night, all I wanted to do was throw on sweats, plop on the couch with a glass of wine, and catch up on favorite blogs (and there’s a lot of em’). But instead I laced up my new running sneakers and headed out into the dark, cold night for a quick 3 mile run.
Brrrrr cold run! Where did the nice fall weather go?!
I probably would have ditched the run if it wasn’t for the fact I just decided last-minute to run a 5K race tomorrow. Originally, when my friend asked me to run the race I was hesitant and said no since I have a baby-shower and birthday party tomorrow but then I figured a 5K is a perfect way to squeeze in an early morning workout and feel energized all day. Plus, it’s only $18 so how could I not do it? It’s in Wakefield and starts at 9am if you’re interested. Click here for more race info.
After my run, I poured myself a glass of wine (I probably should say I chugged a ton of water but that’s not true… wine before water for me! :D) and reheated leftover feta cheese and red pepper stuffed pork chops.
I enjoyed the stuffed pork chops with a big side of roasted broccoli with laughing cow cheese (and a bit of other leftover veggies). Is there anything “mozzarella, sun-dried tomato & basil” laughing cow cheese can’t go with? It’s awesome with scrambled eggs, on an egg sandwich, sandwiches in general, on crackers, with pretzels, the list goes on and on!
On a side and random note, I pulled out a candle from last winter and LOVE it! Did you guys buy this candle at the GAP last Christmas? I could be going out on the limb here, but I think it’s even better than Yankee Candles which I’m obsessed with.
This morning I whipped a green monster smoothie and used whatever was on hand in my kitchen. In the mix: frozen blueberries, spinach, a banana, honey greek yogurt, almond milk, and ice cubes.
How cool is this: the smoothie was black when I made it this morning…….
and somehow it was green by the time I drank it!? Color-changing smoothie?
Alright, gotta work……… talk to ya later!
Anyone wanna run the race tomorrow?
-Mike, Jacki, and I will be there woot woot! 😀
What’s your favorite candle?
