Today was just too fabulous not to write about. At least it was to me. So I will list for y'all, in chronological order, everything wonderful that my day was comprised of:
1- A big bowl of this!
Man, I wish the box still looked this awesome.
I've never actually had any Life that was not cinnamon. I hear the original isn't really very sweet. Sooooo, what's the point of that?
2- It was a beautiful day outside- the kind that lasts well into the morning. So at around 10 this morning, I set out for my run at the park. I was only going to do 2 laps (I told Donnie I'd stay on the track....) but after a mile I was itchinnnnnng to venture off. And since it was a beautiful day, every trail was packed, so I justified my venturing out since I would not be alone somewhere (which is what Donnie worries about). My plan to do a little 5-6 miler quickly turned into 10 with some random hill work thrown in at the turnaround spot. I like doing hill work because at the tops of hills (read: overpasses) I can catch a shot like this:
Sometimes I hate the city. But on days like today, it redeems itself.
3- After a wonderful run, I went straight to Trader Joe's where I stocked up on FABULOUS eats for this week!! You can now find in my fridge:
This stuff is like crack. CRACK. Enjoy it with multigrain pita chips, or broccoli florets, or snap peas. Oh yum.
I'm not sure what my favorite part of this trek mix is. ...Powerberries. It's the powerberries. Don't know what a powerberry is? Get yo'self to a TJ's stat! You can find them in the mix, or, if you know the right place to look, you can get a bag of just the straight berries. Dangerous!
I also have a pretty significant addiction to their Greek yogurt. And at about $1 a carton, you can't go wrong!
And this beauty. This beauty was in my fridge. Now it's on its way to my hips and thighs.
4- I did all my laundry! I won't take a picture of it, because it's not folded. But even though it's not folded (and let's face it....it's probably not going to get folded for another 2 days....I've had a busy Sunday!), it's still clean and that's all that matters in the end.
5- Donnie took the dogs for a stroll with me this evening. This is always quite an undertaking because Lady is ridiculous on a leash, and Max feels the need to pee on every other bush, tree, and hydrant we pass. But today Lady didn't go too nuts until the end...or anytime we passed a feral cat (she shows no interest in Dinah, but when we're out in public she acts like she's bred to kill). Max did throw me off at some point when he lifted his non-usual leg (read: I was in the line of fire. Good thing I was on my a-game...and there were no cars coming as I lept out into the street), but other than that, the four of us remained pretty well behaved.
6- My lesson plans are finished, as well as my manicure. Bring it on, Monday.
