It is a beautiful thing because my appetite has returned. There still isn’t as much room in my stomach but for a few weeks I was worried about who I had turned into when food just wasn’t as delicious as normal. Do not be alarmed because as of yesterday food tasted like the good old days and I was too busy eating to write an afternoon post so we shall start from the beginning of the day.
Another tough 7 miles but I am going to stop telling you that they are tough because I figured out that for the next 19 days my runs are just going to be tough and that is normal. It is called there is a 9+ month baby in my stomach which makes running a little difficult but at the same time it is what keeps me sane.
For breakfast my cutest Megan got coupons for us to go to the Corner Bakery to go try her favorite oatmeal for FREE. PS Megan ran 17 miles before meeting up with me, rockstar! I can’t even comprehend doing that anymore but I am crossing my fingers that the addiction for double digit runs comes back.
They called it ‘chilled oatmeal’ which I am assuming is what all of the blog world eats known as ‘overnight oats.’ You guys are on to something because that was heavenly. Somehow we ended up with four bowls for two people. There was a ton of cut up fruit and almonds mixed in the oatmeal with sides of raisin bread toast, best breakfast ever.
Next up was a bridal shower for my cousin, that is getting hitched soon, complete with games to see how well they knew each other by filming his questions and answers earlier on.
Poor boys sure miss out on the amazing food at bridal showers and baby showers. On my fourth trip back to the fruit and yogurt I thought of the best idea and grabbed a cup to build a personal parfait.
At this point a nap was needed. How do I know when I need a nap? Billy will ask me, “Nap Time?” but his tone sounds more like a PLEA for me to take a nap (because I get a little grumpy) rather than a question.
Have you ever been to a fish fry? Me neither until last night. Our amazing friends had us over for what I can honestly say was the best dinner I have had in F-O-R-E-V-E-R. They fried the mahi that they had caught from their last fishing trip and we turned them into fish tacos.
Fruit with dip, spinach salad with almonds, poppyseed dressing and fried wontons and my first of many tacos. They even had a secret white sauce and freshly made salsa to top it off with.
No fish fry party is complete without s’mores. That isn’t actually a rule but I think it should be. They reminded me that I need to make my s’mores bars asap!
I may have the title as the ‘worst marshmallow cooker in the world’ and so I always make Billy toast mine. I am very specific with the exact consistency that I want my marshmallow for my s’more and once again Billy delivered greatness.
I warned Billy on the way home that he is going to experience a small (or very large) tantrum from me when we move away from all of my Utah people. He better be prepared.
Have you ever had overnight oats? How do you prepare it? I need to know the best way to replicate what I ate yesterday!
How do you like your marshmallow for s’mores? Just a little melty, golden brown or a little bit charred?
What was your long run this weekend? Anyone race?
Question inspired by Billy’s ginormous watch above… do you wear a watch? Regularly?
