Afternoon Out

I spent the afternoon hanging out with my sister at the mall!

 

We tried on winter coats that I’ll never need…

…and some cute tops that are more appropriate for our weather…

Brielle modeled the “maxi dress” which neither of us fully understand. Can anyone pull this look off?

We took a break for lunch, and met our friend Keri at Panera Bread.

I ordered the you pick two:  half turkey sandwich on whole grain bread and a cup of vegetarian soup.

I’m still in kind of a plain-jane mood with eating. I still really have no appetite, and I just realized I didn’t eat any snacks at all today.

After the mall, I relaxed with a beer!

I think that Blue Moon’s “Honeymoon” is my favorite beer right now! It’s refreshing and light. I prefer this over the seasonal “Harvest Moon”.

With my sister (and her picky taste buds) here, it’s hard to please three people for dinner. Tacos are an easy solution since everyone can add their own toppings. Brielle and Jason had turkey, cheese, and “sourcream”.

My plate looked a little different:

  • Two soft taco shells
  • black beans
  • mexican cheese
  • lettuce

Again, super plain. It’s what I wanted though. 😀

My sister and I made Montana Whoppers! I’ve seen them around the blog world, and I’ve been wanting to try making them ever since!

I used crunchy Almond butter in place of peanut butter. I had one fresh out of the oven!! 😀

I realize that I probably did not eat enough today to support running 7.25 miles. If you are new to the blog, I want to make it clear that I normally eat much more than this. I am getting over illness and I just don’t really have much of an appetite yet! Hopefully it will return soon!

Alrighty, well I’m off to bed! Hope you’re having a happy Friday!

Little Reasons

I have a feeling today is going to be a GREAT day!

Reason #1 Why Today is Great!

I’m feeling better today! I’m still coughing… and I don’t have much of an appetite, but I’m 95% better! 😀

Reason #2 Why Today is Great!

I ran 7.25 miles with some of my favorite people!

Reason #3 Why Today is Great!

I was able to listen to my body, and realized that missing one long run this far from the marathon won’t do much harm. I also helped Caitlin realize that listening to your body even when you don’t feel like running is important. (See Video)

Reason #4 Why Today is Great!

I had time to make pancakes from scratch this morning!

I used Taylor’s pumpkin pancake recipe, and they tasted great! So fluffy and filling. These would be perfect on Thanksgiving morning!

(Reason 4b) TONS of leftovers!

Reason #5 Why Today is Great!

There’s a cold front heading through Central Florida, meaning we have most likely seen the last of the 90 degree temps for the rest of the year! Hooray! 😀

Reason #6 Why Today is Great!

It’s someone’s birthday! Not just anyone, my BFF Debbie!

Happy 24th Birthday Debbie! (pic from bday number 23)

Caitlin and I made this super spectacular, totally embarrassing video for her!

I miss you Debbiiieeeee! Running without you is not the same! Enjoy your awesome New Jersey weather! We love you!!

 

What little things are making your day great?
