Good Morning Everyone!
It’s been a week since I’ve posted a recap. I’ve been running around all week going here and there! It doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon. Luckily, I have this morning time to relax and recap for you guys before I get up and around for the day. I was actually up at 4:15 this morning so I could fit this post in. I’ve been having a hard couple of days with poison sumac all over my body. It makes it harder for me to get everything I need to do done, but I’m trying my best. These steroids have me looking pretty cute and the constant itchy feeling is killing me inside. I contemplated on sharing a couple photos from the hospital, but they are too embarrassing, so I’m keeping those to myself. Turns out, I’m pretty dang allergic to the stuff. (more about that later)
Around eight this morning, I headed to the kitchen to make some coffee and breakfast. I made two eggs over easy and two slices of Applegate bacon.
The pups were so dang cute this morning. I made Grumples a little bed by the door so he can look out. Tino sits up at the top of the couch so he can also look out too. When I headed over there, Tino leaned over and gave Grumples a huge smooch! Luckily, I had my snap chat out!
Turkey burgers & veggies for the Lions game. #detroitvseverybodyParmesan broccoli, grilled turkey burgers, and I made a tossed caesar salad with turkey pepperoni, croutons, avocado, and parmesan.Friday Morning, I finished up the orders! It was madness. I have more to get done today too.
I love my Erin Condren stickers on the packages!
Friday morning, I ran three 10 minute miles on the treadmill at an elevation and then turned it down to a low speed and walked for about eighteen minutes at an elevation with five-pound hand weights.I was excited to workout in my new outfit from Satva. The clothes are super cute and incredibly soft!Excuse my morning “no make-up, no hair style” look. They sent me over adorable yoga/running style pants with fun cut outs at the bottom. Those cut-outs are so in right now! They also sent me over a fun patterned tank top with a built in bra and cross cutoutsThey also sent me a code for my readers: satva1 -the code is for 20% your next order! All of their items are organic and you can read their story here! The items are made from eco-friendly cotton and non-GMO bio-ingredients. The clothes fit so perfectly and are true to size.
I think this would make a great Christmas gift for your fitness friends!
So much love for this lil guy.
Toast in Dilworth. I ordered two eggs over easy, wheat toast, bacon, and fruit. Everything was delicious!
I found the cutest little stocking at Home Depot that reminded me of Grumples.
After breakfast, we headed to Home Depot to pick up yard tools, cleaning supplies, firewood, and more!
We decided to pick up the dogs so they could run around the backyard while we cleared everything.
We tried to get a picture with the dogs but it was a struggle. We finally got one…KINDA.
I spent hours raking up leaves with Anthony, digging out tree stubs, burning leaves, bagging leaves, cutting barb wire off the fence, and ripping up roots and weeds. I was sure we’d dig up a dead body somewhere in there because we dug up about six pairs of shoes.
His fur makes him look so fluffy! He’s due for a cut soon.
Someone actually called the fire department because they saw smoke coming from the back of the house. No one has lived in the house for over a year, so they probably thought there was a fire. The fireman came to the back of the house and started cracking up when he saw our little fire pit.
We headed over to my parents for the Hawkeyes game. I love my parents christmas decorations!
It was such a good game, and I’m so sad they lost. They played their hearts out though! I’m excited to see them play in the Rose bowl!
I spent Sunday cooking away! I have some of the recipes posted already, but will post the others later. Above is a crockpot cheese dip with hot peppers, bacon, and sausage!
I’ll post the Baklava recipe later! It was sooooooo good!
I made some pineapple glazed ham!
And the best cheesy biscuits and gravy!
My poison ivy outbreak started on Sunday night. There was just a spot on my face and a couple spots on my arm. At first, I thought it was just bug bites. I stopped at CVS to pick up some calamine lotion and Ibuprofen.
Monday morning breakfast: almonds, chocolate raisins, Greek yogurt with banana, and a bowl of cherries.
This is why running outside is so much better than the treadmill!
Even though I had a fantastic run, I shouldn’t have done it. I think the run and the hot shower spread the poison ivy all over.
Tuesday morning, woke up with it all over my body. My face was/and still is blistered and red. My eyes were almost glued shut on Wednesday and I couldn’t wait any longer. I had to go to the hospital. They got me in there right away because I had it in my lungs and my airways were starting to close and I also had a fever of 101.4. They quickly gave me a a Benadryl shot and a shot of steroids. They kept me under watch until the labored breathing went away and my temperature went down.
Yesterday morning, I headed over to pick up my prescriptions and then relaxed a bit with the pups. I was in so much pain.
It got better throughout the day. I decided to drive out to my parents house to let the dogs run around and play.
I feel so bad when I can’t go out and walk with them, so I like to let them just run and play to get all their energy out. They are the cutest!
I didn’t feel like cooking dinner so I bought soup, juice, watermelon, and a salad at Harris Teeter.
I also bought some lottery tickets 🙂
I was hoping I could run today, but doesn’t look like thats going to happen! I’m hoping it gets better by tonight!
I just relaxed last night editing photos and writing up the recipes!
Now, I’m off to go get ready for the day! So much to do and so little time!
