I feel like I haven’t written a normal post in such a long time, I’ve been holding out on you guys!
Let me get back on track and fill you in on my day.
I didn’t have to work today, so I woke up around 8:30 and went on a 3 mile hilly run around my neighborhood.
When I got back from my run I ate the Overnight Oats that I prepared the night before. I always add a 1/2 a banana to my overnight oats in the morning, but this morning I came back to a banana-less house. I was depressed. But, then I found a full box of big, fat, juicy blueberries and my depression was instantly lifted :).
After my oats, I gave Spanky another bath (you can see how the last one went here). And, then spent the rest of the day reading The Help, while tanning on my deck. Spanky was catching some rays as well.
For lunch I tried to be a little chef and create a seafood salad with the leftover crabs and shrimp from our Father’s Day feast. Did I mention Crabs are my absolute favorite food like ever?
Oh, and old bay on crabs = complete happiness. I remember when I tried to tell 2 of my friends from North Carolina how much I loved Old Bay and they had never heard of it. Um what? They were seriously missing out all their lives. They have obviously have since been forced by me to eat it.
I mixed whole wheat pasta, shrimp, 2 picked crabs, and some avocado. However, it didn’t turn out so well. I don’t think the combination of avocado with seafood was one for my tastebuds. Ya win some ya lose some. I did enjoy eating it on my deck while sunbathing though :).
When my Mom came home we went to Target with a plan to buy just one thing: Divergent. I have been wanting to read it for so long. Everyone whose read it loved it, and said I had to read it! I finally have it and I can’t wait to read it at the beach next week after I finish The Help.
Obviously we bought more than just that book, because it is impossible to go to Target and just buy one thing. I ended up getting the book, a super cute high low blue dress that I am planning to wear on Friday to Amy’s graduation, some more of my favorite Vanilla Whey protein powder, strawberries, and bananas (thank goodness).
After Target we went to Kohls because I needed some new polos for work. Annnnnd again, ended up leaving the store with more than I planned on getting. I also got a cute hot pink running tank and some plain black running shorts. I couldn’t resist :(.
I was so excited about my new running gear I decided to run 2 miles as soon as I got home to test it out. It was another 3 miles plus 2 miles = 5 kinda day.
Now I’m off to watch the episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey I missed from last night, have a good one!
Question for ya: What is your favorite food of all time?!
Mine is a 3-way tie between: anything with peanut butter, crabs, and pasta salad.
