My bestie, Katie, sent this to me yesterday. She just gets me. I also KNOW I have a problem with rolling my eyes...I'm working on it! Kind of. (Eye- roll). I think 38% of our communication is via memes...I don't hate it! <3
This is SO true, which is why I had THREE packages on the porch yesterday. Whoops!
Jake & I have gone through a ton of Ziplocs lately & I wanted to stop. So, I got us some glass baby food jars. How cute are these?? They're Jervis & George, & I can't wait to try them out.
We love trying different protein powders, so this one is up next! Has anyone tried this? I'm looking forward to my first shake.
I desperately needed new shampoo & conditioner. Accidentally got the amplify, buuuut we will see! I already have a borderline fro 98% of the time. These smell SO good.
I had to Skype into class last night, & Lu would not stop jumping onto my lap. I finally let her stay for a little bit, but she just wanted to sleep. I got this picture of her yawning, haha!
I finally kicked her off my lap & she pouted for awhile. Poor baby. So neglected.
Sorry for the grammatical errors in this, but I had to share. This is my life, which is why we didn't go out for Mexican this week. Chips & salsa are a major weakness for me...
Leftover taco salad & pineapple guac for dinner! We both loved the ground lamb on these. Super good!
After dinner, we headed over to see our good friends, Scottie & Brandi's new place. Jake was being a weirdo with his hat, so I thought I needed to document it. Never a dull moment with this one! <3
We have missed this fella! I think he was worn out from begging for pizza. ; )
This happened on the way home. We had both been craving ice cream for awhile, so we caved & shared a small. It was pretty yummy!
Then it was into bed to give my girls some cuddles before I passed out. I love Aspen's face in the picture on the right. She was attempting to escape, I think. I just love these two!
Up at 4 to run! My IT band was still a little tender, but nowhere near as sore as it was yesterday, so I thought I'd test it out. I was prepared to run half a mile & turn around to go back home if it started bothering me. I sat on the floor to put socks on & Lu decided she needed cuddles. I drank some BCAAs & a little bit of coffee to help motivate me!
This run wasn't great, but we did it. We both felt worn out & heavy. We also had trouble breathing. It was pretty humid, so I'm hoping that's part of it. My knee started to hurt at mile 2, but it wasn't a super uncomfortable pain, so I told Jake I would go another little bit & then see. He was really good about checking in with me every so often. The knee pain eventually went away!! About mile 6, I FINALLY started to loosen up a little. So, we got 8 in this morning!
Home to shower super fast (we were running behind) & make breakfast. We had avocado toast, half a banana, & eggs over easy - 2 for me & 3 for Jake. This breakfast was a favorite! So yummy & quick to make.
Mmmm. Yes. I could eat this again right now!
Aspen always gets sad when we are getting ready to leave. She looked at me like this as I was walking toward the door, so I had to stop & give her some kisses. Look at that sweet face!! Don't let it fool you, though...she bit me a little right after this picture lol.
I told Jake I was bummed I didn't a picture after our run. I heard him shouting, "I got a picture!!" He then sends me this. Love it! He's the best.
We have double date night with Nick & Ash tonight at Galloway. We can't wait! We love getting to spend time with them.
Happy Friday Eve, everyone! This weather makes me want to go home, put sweats on, & lay on the couch. In 22.5 days, I can do just that! <3
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.
