My phone randomly ate half of the pictures that I took last night so instead of 20 pictures we are just going to have to deal with a lot less than that.
Somehow I was lucky enough to get to have a part of San Jose back with me yesterday. Two of my good friends and their daughter from California are back in Utah visiting their family and I got to have them for an afternoon at my house. I can’t even begin to describe how much I have missed my San Jose friends so yesterday felt so good to be with some of them.
(PS have I ever told you my dad is also an artist and that is one of his paintings on the wall)
My friend even helped me to transfer everything from my old computer to my new one. My old computer had seen his day. It must take a lot out of a computer to post pictures of my baby, running shoes and food two times a day for a few years.
Cheez-Its and pretzels fueled this activity.
Yesterday was quite the baking day, my baking love is back with a vengeance. First up my mom had a shower to go to last night and so the famous Anderson S’mores Bars had to be made. Always the life of the party.
Brooke looks so sad because my mom had just told her that she was only leaving a few bars with us and taking the rest to the party.
The second baking experience of the day was over at a friend’s house (she has three little dogs and a little girl so Brooke is always so happy to go over to her house). I had mentioned to her that Rolos are currently my favorite candy and that reminded her of an awesome cookie recipe.
There are actual Rolos in the middle of the chocolate cookie goodness.
Mix together (should make a thick dough):
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 box devil food cake
Take 1-2 tbsp of dough and shape them around a Rolo to form a ball. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
New favorite food combination= chocolate and caramel.
Also, I saw this on the Rolo package and I think this will be the next creation made in the kitchen for me:
I am doing my long run today because Brooke and I have awesome plans for this weekend and there will be no time to run 14 miles. I will be trying something new and listening to talks for the first 11 miles (they are supposed to be at an easy pace) and I will be listening to Katy Perry’s new song ROAR on repeat for the last 3 miles (done at a fast pace) because that song just makes me want to run fast.
How many hours a day on average are you on your computer?
Current favorite candy?
A song that makes you want to run fast lately?
