Guys, why even make a small bottle of Sriracha? That seems silly...
Lunch yesterday was the bomb! A sweet potato topped with chicken, guacamole, onion, BBQ sauce, and Sriracha. Yes, please! And some plantain chips on the side for good measure. ; )
This little girl got her hair cut yesterday. Getting her hair cut always wears her out! She slept most of the day. Look how sweet and innocent she looks? Especially for someone who isn't supposed to be on that chair...
Aspen in her spot by the door! If there is sun shining anywhere in our house, Aspen will find it!
I decided I needed a power nap, so all of us gals ventured to the bed to cuddle. <3 I texted Jake as I was laying down and told him to make sure I got up when he got home - that way I was only asleep for about 20 minutes. I'm not the most pleasant person to wake up, so I wasn't sure if he would even attempt. He did! And I was nice...I think. I don't remember. ; )
Jake had a ride last night, so i worked a little on my dissertation and then started on dinner. We had fish tacos and my favorite brussels! This was seriously yummy. The brussels just have garlic powder, balsamic vinegar, and honey on them - this is my go-to for brussels. It's SO good. For the fish, all I did was chop up 4 tilapia filets and add the chunks to some sauteeing onion and jalapeno. Then I cooked everything with lemon and lime juice, and some seafood seasoning from Primal Palate. That's it! Super simple and really good! We topped the tacos with guac, Sriracha, salsa, and coleslaw.
POPSICLES. Can't stop, won't stop. Jake had two!
They were thinking, "Maybe if we don't look at her, she will throw our toy..."
Jake needed to be up at 3 to run with a group at 3:30 - I decided I would get up with him, run a little with him before he met them, then come home and work on my dissertation. Ugh. I knew that alarm was going to hurt when i heard it going off. We were also in bed before 8...
We both got up just fine! I ran 3 with Jake, then he met a group for a long run and I ran back home. I got a total of 5 in. Nothin' like crossing a busy street and not seeing a single car...
I was absolutely drenched. Here's my failed attempt at showing the sweat droplets dripping down my legs. It was SO humid. I can't imagine running in this any later than we did!
I LOVE my headlamp. It was definitely needed for this run, too.
I got home from my run and got right to work typing. I got about 2 hours of work in before Jake got home from his run. While he got ready for work, I made us breakfast. I love burritos, but I like to rip my tortilla into little pieces and pile everything on that way - then it's like 12 little burritos, instead. Is that weird? Probably. Jake ate his like a normal person. These had egg, sausage, chicken, mushrooms, onion, and spinach! Topped with guac and Sriracha, and cheese for Jake. Mmm!
I WILL finish Chapter 2 today. Or else. Here's my plan - it's happening. I don't have an option! I have 3ish sections left...I think I can, I think I can...
It's another dissertation work day. We are going to dinner with my parents tonight. We leave next week for Colorado for almost 3 weeks, so we won't see them for awhile! I think we are getting Mexican. <3
Cheers to Wednesday!
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.
