Smells Like Summer Vacation
Good morning! For some reason, today feels like “summer break” for me. It totally isn’t, but I feel like I have the rest of the summer off to do whatever I please: read books, go to the pool, garden, take a mid week trip, etc. I think I might just live out this feeling, because it sure does sound good! teachers: does summer make the school year worth it??
Anyway, since yesterday morning the weather was the bipolar weather that Illinois is, I took advantage in the morning. Thunderstorms = baking, right? Well, maybe it means more than that. Like a leisurely waffle breakfast!
You know that’s why that yogurt is blue! SO good. I could probably think of a million ways to use this syrup!!
Anyway, this breakfast fueled quite a few activities (it’s so filling!) including making 5 minute nutty protein cookie bowls! This time I made in completely in the Vitamix, dry ingredients in first, then wet.
They turned out delicious, as always…
But, I think I prefer them better in the food processor and then just combined.
Next, my waffle fueled my workout! OK, guys. Honesty time. After my run on Friday my sciatic nerve was reallly talking to me. I didn’t workout at all on Saturday, and though normally I’d get a run in and do some yoga on Sunday, I decided it was best to just get in some yoga. My gym had a class in about a half hour, so it was perfect.
Have I showed you guys my favorite “yoga transition” top? This flowy (lululemon) top makes a transition from OK I’m sitting in class ready to begin and warm up to ok, I’m definitely WARM. Know what I mean? I love love love it, but don’t think I’ve showed it on the blog! It’s pretty cute, too.
Not cute? The ridiculous outfit I put on when I got back home.
After yoga, I still wasn’t hungry, so I bypassed lunch and got in some cleaning and laundry. Then I looked down at myself and realized I couldn’t let this outfit go unseen. Anyone else absolutely not give two craps whether they match at home or not? *raises hand* haha
Finally, the waffle wore off, and it was time for lunch.
Mmmm sauce, anyone? Underneath that blanket of tasty sauce, were chickpeas, broccoli, spinach, and romaine. I haven’t had a salad like this in forever and my, my, was it fantastic! I’m so glad I still have some of that sauce left
A little more cleaning and blog reading, and then it was time to clean up and get ready! Shane and I had plans to go see the Hangover Part II with some friends.
It was SO wrong, but SO hilarious, and Bradley Cooper is SO fine And? There were only 5 other people in the theatre! Nevermind the fact that they chose to sit directly in front of us (wtf?) but it was such a good time.
Afterward we hit up a Mexican restaurant across the street for some grub. I went with veggie fajitas, sans tortillas.
Delicious! Just like it is every other time we go
The rest of the night involved Niko walks, finishing up cleaning, and Dexter season 4 finales. Good times
Now it’s time to read your blogs, and then I’m off to a spin class before training a client! Then I’ll probably read a book since it’s summer break and all
