Welllll, this breakfast still isn’t great, but I don’t hate it. I don’t hate many types of food, so that’s pretty typical. I will try to remake these baked oatmeal cups in a few weeks...once I’ve forgotten how terribly I messed them up this round.
Ive been drinking OptiGreens for a few weeks. I heard a lot of people who didn’t like the taste, but I like it. It’s kind of like a lightly sweetened tea. Also, I was sent a preset to use on pictures, so I’ve been playing around with it. I can’t decide if I like it or not. I used it on this photo. Anyone else out there use presets on their photos?
I spent the morning observing some of my practicum students in their elementary schools. It’s always fun to see them and watch them in the classroom for the first time. They all seem to enjoy it and I love that.
After I observed, I came home and made lunch. I made this cute smiley face for myself. Does this mean I need another hobby?
This lunch was delicious. I finally got to try my other dairy-free cheese. This one is amazing, too. I made tuna tacos with spinach.
This made me laugh way too hard. I love to wear Jake’s shirts and the fabric of this one is so soft. Nothing like eating a banana in a banana shirt.
This girl was living her best life riding around with the windows down. She has figured out that if she stands in the right spot, she can roll the window down even further. I have to use the window lock whenever she rides with me.
We snuggled in the sun, then headed outside and spent most of our afternoon in the backyard. I read a book, we played frisbee, and the girls napped in the sun.
She sleeps with her nose pressed up against the windows all the time. Between her and Lu, I have given up on cleaning these sliding glass doors.
Nothing has ever been more true.
We had a MORC event last night. They provided pizza and beer, which was sweet! I stuck to dairy-free and got an appetizer for dinner. These brussles are delicious.
Happy Friday, friends!
I am getting used to having a handheld on longer runs. I used to hate having something in my hand, but now I’m growing to like it. I only take a handheld if I’m doing 10 or more miles.
I subbed yesterday morning for a friend, so I took breakfast on the go. These muffins are awful unless they’re in a bowl with milk, honey, and almond butter. I subbed in her PE class, so I got to wear sweats. My idea of a dream!
I spent most of the day on my computer yesterday, so I don't have much to tell ya! Oh, one bummer...guys, those oatmeal baked muffin cups I shared were awful! Jake took some to work and called me to say they were really dry, so I shouldn’t eat them by themselves. Oh my gosh. He was right. Gross. Buuuut, I did crumble them into some plant protein milk and top them with almonds butter and honey. That helped!! The flavor is awesome, but the texture is the worst.
Jake headed out of town Thursday evening for some races. I had an off day from running Friday, so we had a slow morning getting around. It was wonderful. The girls loved it, too, but we were missing Jake.
When your coach and the nutritionist of Wahoo Running tell you to try a product, you try the product. I’m excited to try these out during my next long run if I have any cramping. I had terrible cramps in my legs during my last marathon, so I would love to avoid that in April.
I think I like Valentina’s hot sauce on eggs better than Sriracha. Don’t tell anyone I said that...also, if you like almond butter AND you like blueberry waffles, try them together. YUM.
My giveaway goodies made it to their winner! I loved getting so share some of my favorites with you guys. Maybe I need to start doing giveaways more often...
This little throwback was from a New Year’s Eve trip we took with friends to Austin, TX in 2017. We had all of the best food and drinks on that trip! I love the Austin area, it’s so fun.
Guys, I am an AUNT!!!! Meet my perfect angel niece - Eleanor Lynn. Look at those cheeks?! I know I might be a bit biased, but she is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. My family had such a wonderful weekend welcoming this little gal into the world. And yes, I am OBSESSED.
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
