The littles things are making my morning runs lately… Coming home from a run with the sprinklers on and feeling hot rather than shivering like the last 5 months just started my day off right. I ended up listening to music yesterday during my run rather than a podcast and I realized that I will always be stuck in my college years of music playlists. I rarely listen to new music and stick to the ‘best era of music’ even if every generation feels like their college/high school years produced the best music.
I came home to find Brooke cuddled up on the couch reading a book. She is so happy with our current schedules and taking her mornings more slowly. Also, we just got an email that the last day of school assignments is May 15th so really we aren’t that far away from summer now!
I did a few squats and lunges while doing school work/breakfast with Brooke and she showed me a trick she learned from school to make her biceps look bigger. Megan’s IG workouts are my current source of all strength training and Andrew and I need to hit our weight room together this week.
We decided that lunch should be eaten outside yesterday and to play in the sprinklers.
Followed by some popsicles.
It was my brother’s birthday yesterday so Andrew gave him the best present he could think of—> He wore a Dodger’s hat all day (my brother’s favorite team and Andrew is a an Angels fan). It was definitely painful for Andrew but he followed through (for a few hours).
He lasted as long as he could in it;)
I haven’t been to any grocery stores since everything happened so yesterday felt like a whole new world to me. I left the girls with Andrew and spent some time alone doing errands and it was very strange. Trader Joe’s said that they have a constant line outside because they only allow about 30 people in at a time.
I’m a huge fan of quinoa salads so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. Add the dressing, squeeze the lime and mix it up and it is a heavenly meal.
Another delicious thing that I ate was this copycat recipe of Carrabba’s Olive Oil Bread Dip with a baguette from TJ’s.
Day #2 of spending an hour on yard work. Brooke helped and Skye explored.
Dessert… While I was at TJs I felt like I was buying a month’s worth of food but at this quarantine rate of how many meals we are all eating a day, it’s going to last like 5 days;)
PS I have to show off my mom’s first loaf of sourdough ever that she made. Isn’t it beautiful?!
When do you think the best music era was?!
Are you missing watching any sports other than running? What teams are you missing the most?
What’s something from TJ’s that you have been loving lately?
When you do strength work, where do you get your workouts from or do you come up with them on your own?
