Blueberry Monster

Good morning and happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday off from work or school πŸ™‚

While it’s still a long weekend, I treated this Monday like any other and got in some cardio. It was such a treat though because I ditched the treadmill and pick up a pretty cute running partner πŸ˜‰

I know many bloggers take pictures of themselves during and/or post runs – but you won’t see any of that here. I’m far too vain to show myself looking as trife as I do after a long sweaty run outside. I’m just not a pretty sweat-er. Plain and simple.

After our run, Cory and I immediately scarfed down some cereal.

My heart skipped a beat when I realized I had no bananas in my possession. What is cereal without sliced banana?! Thank goodness I remembered the blueberries that I had on hand.

Oh Lawd, these blueberries are fantastic! The pints of blueberries were buy one get one free when I was at Giant yesterday, and that was a deal I couldn’t pass up. I’ve single-handedly demolished a pint in about 24 hours.


Now Cory and I are off to the grocery store to pick up some eats for our Memorial Day cookout for two. I see a big, juicy burger and some time by the pool in my future – and I don’t hate it πŸ˜‰

While it’s true that I’m lovin’ this day because it gets me a long weekend, but I would be remiss not to thank all the brave men and women who serve, or have served, in the armed forces. Thank for your service.

Let’s chat – Are you going to a cookout today? We didn’t make plans for today, so we’re just having a little cookout for ourselves πŸ™‚

What’s your favorite cookout food?Β I love a good burger and baked beans!

Can you kill a pint of blueberries like I can? It’s okay if you think I’m a little out of controlΒ

    And yes, I could demolish a pound of blueberries if they were in front of me…same goes with cherries!

  6. I agree with you on the baked beans…I also love deviled eggs and grilled veggies! I’m not actually sure what I am doing today…?

  7. I devour blueberries like it’s my job. Actually currently, I don’t have a job so I will consider my job.

    We aren’t having a cookout but I could use a nice steak and hot dog.

    Have a great time at your cookout! I’m not that big on burgers, but I do love a good kebab!

  14. No cookout, had to work (yes, insert sad face please).

    Favorite is a bacon cheese burger (yes, I know they are fattening; but I do not care). With some beans and pasta salad!

    I LOVE blueberries!!! I have killed a pint in ten minutes! Also, I have a HUGE container of blueberries in my fridge (with the big container, I do not eat as many at a time)!

  15. I love grilled vegetables! But I don’t usually get those at a cookout, haha. I can TOTALLY knock out a pint of blueberries!!
