Nom, nom, nom.
My absolute favorite new breakfast:
Melon + granola + Almond Breeze.
Scoop out the center and form a little bowl, then fill with all of your favorites. A dollop of Sun Butter on top? Something about the salty and sweet makes me SWOON.
I picked up ANOTHER water bottle. Just in case.
This was for sale at Starbucks. I first noticed the beautiful color, and really couldn't say no after I spotted the button. It has a button you push to drink. No more spills! (I had an issue with never closing the lid tight enough on my Nalgene's.)
Random photo of me after a Crossfit workout. Resting and showing off my Vibrams. :) Sweaty butt all over the counter. Let's hope I sanitized those before my aunt came into town ...
My aunt arrived Thursday evening, and graduation was Friday morning. I scooped these beauties up at the PX with her after the commencement, I showed her around Fort Hood and we decided to do a little shopping.
Oh Martha Stewart. I think time behind bars served her well, her line just keeps getting cuter and cuter.
She brought some home-made gluten free cereal mix for me. So yummy! Millet is my new favorite thing, right there next to Sunbutter.
Foam rolling after a 6 mile run on Saturday. I've been wearing my Vibrams a lot more, slowly breaking into them, but damn, they have been shredding my calves.
Puppy company on the floor.
This is some new Nike Combat gear my cousin gave me for graduation. I'm OBSESSED.
The incredible views of Belton Lake from Dead Fish Grill. We took my lovely auntie here for Mother's Day.
It's this bad ass little low key restaurant right on the lake with great fishy kind of foods.
I creeped with the camera ...
We got her a few little gifts, including a gift certificate for Farmville, because yeeeeep, she's one of THOSE ladies ;) I made some artwork for her, too.
Last year I made a Crazy Goat drawing for her ... next year she'll probably get a chicken. :)
I had a naughty Arnold Palmer. Dang good.
Catfish tacos, Texas slaw, black beans, avocado sauce.
Jameson had a catfish poboy. Yum, right?
The lady of honor had an ahi sandwich. All of it was soooo good, and we will be back!
It was such a nice relaxing weekend. My aunt flew home last night *sniff* and this morning, it was back to the gym. :) An awesome work out of lunges, squats, sprint intervals, pushups, kettle bell swings - a total body attack.
I hit up H-E-B on my way home for the deal of the century. Buy a bag of chicken breasts, and get Alfredo sauce, garlic bread, pasta and cheese for FREE. H-E-B has seriously kickass deals.
Including these house flops.
I call them house flops, because I only wear them inside. We have hardwood floors, and a white dog that sheds like a maniac, and I HATE the sensation of anything on the bottom of my feet. I sweep everday and mop once a week, not at all OCD, bahaha. Instead of wandering the house on my tippy toes, I bought these.
I have only ever seen Okabashi at Whole Foods, I couldn't get over the fact H-E-B was selling them! They're made in the USA from recycled materials. They're also anti-microbial. You can wash them in the dishwasher. :) Uh, at least I do.
Then, being the new college grad I am, I sat on my ass for the rest of the morning and painted my nails.
I even had a stencil that came with the white, and traced a little flower on my thumb. I don't have annnyyyyy time to waste, at all!
Elliot has been a busy boy.
While my cheap manicure dried, I read an awesome article in Runner's World ... Check out this clip:
That is why I run, in a nutshell. Fitness and running, the benefits for me are MENTAL. I'm still the size of a small cow, so we know it isn't the physical results. Could be that I eat like a blue whale ....
I even got my Betty Crocker on and made cookies.
It's like a hundred degrees outside, and I'm making pumpkin cinnamon cranberry cookies. Not weird at all.
Martha Stewart is probably shaking her head at me.
Guess what my hunny bunny gifted me for graduation? A subscription to these bites of genious! And some other goodies, that you'll soon see ...
My goals for 2011 are to run a marathon and to do a tri. :) I just bought my bike.
Awwww, that's a keepsake. Should put it away before I use it as a napkin, or toilet paper ...
The cookies are little pillows of pumpkin bliss!
Maybe I should share the recipe?
I'm off to enjoy more free time! :)
