Hi there! Is everyone excited for an abbreviated workweek? You know I don’t like Tuesdays, but since I have a very short week this week, I can handle it :)
Yesterday was such a great, lazy day. I love days that have absolutely nothing on the agenda. No “have to’s” of any kind. This weekend I slept 9 – 10 hours each night and it was glorious. I guess my body needed to catch up on some sleep!
I spent about an hour at the pool yesterday. Jesus Christ – it was 100 degrees outside! That’s a little too hot for me. I also limited my time both pool days because I know being in the sun isn’t the best. But, gooosh, I love having a tan!
Post-pool I came back and whipped up a smoothie in no time :)
My spinach stash had gone bad, so this was a regular old smoothie (please note my extremely precise measurements):
- Just enough skim milk to get everything movin’
- A handful of ice cubes
- A dollop of blueberry Chobani
- 1 1/2 tbsp PB
- 1 banana
- 1 frozen strawberry
It was tasty, and even though you cannot taste the spinach, I missed it!
Two for two
I made a smoothie, and Cory made a baguette from scratch. No big deal.
He’s never made bread. He just felt like giving it a try. It turned out so well! I even snagged a huge chunk to eat at lunch today :)
Cory was actually 2 for 2 in the kitchen yesterday. We had a little cookout and he made the best burgers I have ever tasted in my entire life. Truly, they were out of this world. How lucky am I? Seriously.
Gross picture, I know. But this was the only one I took. The food was hot and ready to be eaten, so I really didn’t take the time to try and be creative. You forgive me, right? ;)
(PS – We didn’t have any butter for the corn, so I sprinkled some parmesan cheese on the cob and it was quite a nice substitute!)
Cory moves into our new place in less than a month (!!), so he spent a good chunk of time cleaning out his closet. Look at all this stuff he’s sending to Goodwill!
A good amount of t-shirts were Longwood related, and it was kind of sad to see them placed into the give away pile. I would see a shirt and think “You wore that on such-and-such date.” It was strange!
Remember how I said I’ve been getting 9 – 10 hours of sleep for the past few days? Yeah. Well, when my alarm went off at the ass-crack of dawn, I didn’t budge. An afternoon workout is in my future.
I am running so low on food right now! Like I said, it’s a short week for me because I’m traveling this weekend, so I’m trying to avoid buying food that will go bad. That said, I went to the grocery store at 6 AM to buy juuust enough to get me through the next three days :)
Thank goodness I made the decision to go to the store – how would I have been able to enjoy my beloved cereal combo without milk?!
Well, my friends – that’s the story so far! I’m off to make the bacon :) I’ll catch you guys later!
Have you ever made bread from scratch? I sure haven’t!
What’s your favorite smoothie concoction? Plain and simple: PB & banana, (and spinach) for me!
