Thursday already? I’m not complaining but how did that happen? Three day weekends really throw me off. The beginning of this week will go fast and then next week will feel extra long.
I’m even more thrown off this morning because I can’t find my USB with all of my blog stuff (mostly pictures). I have a feeling it will turn up but I’m freaking out a bit right now. So to get my mind off that let’s think out loud about some other stuff. Let’s start with a few pictures.
This was one of the many sunrise shots I got on Wednesday morning. I felt like I was just chasing the sunrise to take more pictures.
Was anyone else really happy that it finally rained last night? I guess if you’re not living on the east coast area maybe you weren’t dealing with the disgusting humidity for the last few days, but based on instagram I could tell I was not the only one trying to run through the humidity. Last night it finally stormed. All afternoon it felt like it was going to rain and then in the middle of yoga class we heard the downpour begin. The instructor opened the windows as we were finishing up class (it was a hot class so it felt good to have a little cooler air come in at the end) and we listened to the rain in savasana.
The fun part was when I got to walk home in the rain. There were puddles 3 inches deep already! I mean I was gross and sweaty so getting wet was fine, but my feet were soaked! I was wearing an old pair of flip flops but now they are really done.
We order alot of stuff from amazon subscribe and save, including my favorite Lara bars.
We’ve been out for almost a week but finally got a new shipment yesterday! I was probably a little too excited about that. I had been eating Luna Bars when I got desperate but I realized they give me heartburn. Along with triscuits. Who knew? After yesterday’s post I’m still learning more about what my body likes and doesn’t like to eat.
Speaking of food, this week has already consisted of some good meals! On Monday I made Paleo Running Momma’s Sundried Tomato and Onion Stuff Chicken with Walnut Pesto. I knew I would like this but I wasn’t sure about Rob. He was hesitant but admitted that he really liked it and encouraged me to save the leftover pesto. (We ate everything else.) I wasn’t able to “stuff” the chicken because it was too thin, so I layered the onion and tomato mixture on top. Just as good in my opinion!
I also made a paleo taco salad last night (no picture) but Rob devoured it. I don’t think we will every be buying packaged taco seasoning again.
I know I’ve been all negative lately about summer ending- but you know what’s even worse? Starting to plan for the holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays when it gets to be mid November. It’s just a little soon to be thinking about it now. Unfortunately we do so much traveling over the holidays that it needs to get figured out really early. We booked Thanksgiving flights about a month ago, and now we are trying to figure out Christmas. Wanna hear about how complicated it is? Ok I’ll tell you. My parents and sister live in Maryland but the rest of my family is in NY so we go there for Christmas, but can’t leave until Christmas day. Rob’s parents live in Cleveland but have a house in Florida, his sister and brother in law live in Arkansas, and the rest of Rob’s family is in Michigan where they celebrate Christmas. So everyone travels and it’s never easy. At least we have a fun beer tasting tradition.
Thanks Amanda for hosting Thursdays are for Thinking Out Loud!
When do you start planning for the holidays?
How has the weather been where you live?
