I learned yesterday that a Costco chocolate muffin makes excellent pre-run fuel. I’m going to need a lot more of these.
It was 73 degrees outside so I was very shocked with my 8:49 average pace… it must have been the muffin.
I listened to this episode during the run and it was so inspiring in so many ways!
We hit up Brooke’s last tennis lesson of the month.
And then Target for some groceries and a Tumblr for the kids to help them drink more water.
A filled up punch card brings me so much joy.
We used Kimberly’s favorite panini recipe that she told me about in the comments yesterday for our lunch and it was TOO good. Baked chicken tenders (I just bought some at Target), pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced tomatoes and spinach with a schmear of honey mustard dressing. We will be making this a million times now. Andrew added some pickles to his and he loved that addition too.
PS this is the panini maker that we have and love!
Just a normal summer day around here for the rest of the day (and another panini for dinner:)
Let’s talk about a few of my favorite things this week!
*I mentioned our new magical egg cooker a few weeks ago but now it has to be a Friday Favorite because of how often we are using it. We are going through hard-boiled eggs like crazy now as snacks or on top of salads or in sandwiches because it is so easy to use. It even has a built in sensor (and a an alarm to tell you when they are done) that tells you when they are done so you don’t have to guess or do really any work (and that’s why I love it).
*For Father’s Day I got Andrew a new pair of the Launch 7 and they are perfect for this time of year. They have them in women’s and men’s so if you need some patriotic shoes, I hope you love these ones.
*This was a find from my sister but if you have a Costco membership and love Mexican Style Street Corn, you have to grab this. It was quick and easy to put together and packed with flavor. My mouth actually started drooling just as I was typing about it because it was so good. Our favorite street taco recipe is here.
*I LOVED this blog post from Anne… so many great tips!
*My good friend posted this story on her Facebook and it gave me all of the goosebumps. I hope you enjoy it too!
I love hearing the amazing things you are doing so please send them to [email protected] if you want to be featured!
Catie!!! “I ran my second virtual 5k this past weekend but this time with my two good friends. We had signed up for a race on May 31 but it was cancelled. We have texted and kept each other accountable during this whole quartine time. And we decided to run the race anyways. We all met at my house. I mapped out a 5k in my neighborhood. And then we celebrated with mimosas and quiche afterwards! It was amazing to see my friends and accomplish something we’d all worked hard on!”
Have any weekend plans that you are looking forward to?
Any good news or sweet stories you have read about online lately (or good news or sweet stories in your own life)?!
Do you use coupons regularly or punch cards ever?
