A Spendy Saturday
I’m not sure HOW in the world it’s already 6:30, but it leads me to think that the rate at which you blow money and the rate that time passes is directly correlated! Yes, it was a spendy Saturday.
After this morning’s run, I cooked up breakfast #2:
I can’t get enough of this combination! Pumpkin cream cheese for the win. Let’s just say my bagel’s lucky it had any left after it got out of the toaster
Belly full, I felt ready to embrace the absolutely gorgeous late summer weather we’re having here and Illinois. So I set out to take Niko with me to the farmer’s market. I haven’t been there ALL summer – so I felt the need to go. However, by the time we left the house it only had an hour until it closed, so it’d be slim pickens.
Instead, we went to Fresh Market to pick up some baking supplies, and since Niko waited nice and patiently in the car, I took her next door to PetCo, where she proceeded to get in a fight with a poodle. Regardless, I showed her my appreciation with love, treats, toys…and clothes.
This chilly weather has left Niko with the shivers! A hoody was in order. She was NOT impressed. In fact, she wouldn’t even move.
So you can imagine her excitement when it was time to try on her Halloween costume:
Yeah…she pretty much turned to catatonic dog Shane and I joked that this should actually be her every day outfit – ha!
By this time, lunch was in order. Since breakfast was a little heavy, I kept lunch light with a delicious kale salad (shocking)
massaged kale w/ olive oil + lemon + sea salt, red onion, raw cashews, and FIGS!
I picked up these babies at Fresh Market today. Ever since I learned that you can just eat ‘em whole, I’ve been wanting to pick up some! They were fantastic in the salad.
By this time, Shane wanted to get in on the lovely weather, too, so we packed up in the car and headed to the disc golf park! Shane disc golfed, and Niko and I followed along.
I suck a disc golf, and still don’t like it after trying 20 times. I think it’s time to throw in the towel here.
As I write this, I’m honestly not sure how I fit all of this in one day today. Because I steady chilled on the couch for a solid two hours catching up on Jersey Shore after “disc golfing.”
At least I was in good company
The rest of the day involved a little shopping with a bestie… I was supposed to help her pick out some boots, but it turned out to be the other way around…
I’ve been wanting Frye boots for.ev.er. When I tried this pair on and they fit like a dream, I immediately called Shane.
Erm, hi babe. Soooo…you know how the 3rd anniversary gift is leather? (our anniversary is the 27th) Well, if you’re having trouble picking out a gift, I think I may be able to help you out.
haha. I’m so kind like that Anyway, when he said go for it, I handed the sales associate my card and never looked back!
After all that…I need a beer
Hope you all are having a great Saturday so far. The plan for us is pumpkin bbq pizza and pumpkin beer
