Have you ever been extremely tired, however you just don’t feel like going to bed? That is me tonight. I have heavy eyes that are fighting to stay open, but I’d rather sit here and blog while watching my movies. Most likely I won’t make it through his post and I’ll have to finish it in the morning
That didn’t take long. I was out right after that paragraph.
First off, I am pumped up today! It’s IOWA GAME DAY! I’ve already put on my Hawkeye shirt.:)
Since it’s Saturday, I wanted to reflect back on my week and share some things that I did, ate, and loved!
^ Tuesday Morning Breakfast: Energize toast with almond butter and jelly, blueberries, strawberries,
Tuesday night I went to cross fit with Nick, and then we had chipotle for dinner. I usually get their salads topped with half and half chicken and steak, a little bit of cheese, black beans, corn, and a little bit of brown rice.
I finally got the feeling back in my legs. That workout was tough, but I liked it and can’t wait to do more.
The middle wrap is a whole grain flatout wrap with lettuce, avocado, mustard, turkey, and mozzarella.
My life was filled with puppies this week. I was in dog heaven!
Grumples had a checkup on Wednesday for his ear and everything is good! He is prone to infections because he has the floppy ears.
Tino, Chip, Grumples, and Rudy!
Nick and I went to Wes’s house for the first college football game on Thursday night. Wes is a huge foodie and always makes unique meals. Thursday he made brats topped with pickled onions and cucumbers, spring mix lettuce, dijon mustard, and a jalapeño jelly. I’m not a huge brat person (or hotdog person) but I did have a bite of Nick’s to try it. It was pretty freaking good.
Orange ginger Siggi’s yogurt is something I’m LOVIN’ lately! I love anything ginger. I love the chunks of ginger and oranges in this yogurt.
I mixed in some of those chocolate covered chia seeds, Nature valley oats, and some cinnamon roasted chickpeas.
Check out that dirty face. I had to clean all my sheets yesterday because grumples decided to hide his bone in the dirty rocks. I tried to scrub it out and give him a bath but it’s all stained. He gets groomed next week, thank goodness!
The nylabones are the only toys to keep them preoccupied.
These two are non-stop!
And out of all the places they could have picked to chew their bones…it had to be my bed.
In order for me to get into the mood to study, I need to be relaxed. So I put a playlist on spotify, turned the lamps on and burned a pumpkin spice scentsy.
I also made coffee!
Later in the afternoon, my canvas arrived! I ordered a couple last week and then ordered more this week! I should have more coming soon.
I had to hang them up immediately. I grabbed the nails and a rusty old hammer!
The first photo is the shot I took a couple weeks ago after having dinner at the Garden Cafe.
The second shot is the photo I took in Maine at a coffee shop in Ogunquit.
While I was cleaning some of the storage room, I found this painting I did when I lived in Chicago! It doesn’t match anything I have, so I may give it away.
After cleaning, doing laundry, studying, and walking the dogs, I made a banana mango raspberry flaxseed smoothie!
It had almond milk, ice, frozen mango, frozen raspberries, a frozen banana, 1 packet stevia, and ground flaxseeds.
I also made those outrageously delicious brownies yesterday; it’s the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe. I was planning on making them Thursday, but Charlotte traffic put a hold on them. I’ll be bringing these out for the games today!
What are you guys doing this weekend?
