Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday. A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging. And to hang out with fun people.


Last Saturday was Nathan’s [Husband] Birthday! 🙂 20140412_112443(uhm – please don’t think he looks dis-interested in this picture – it was incredddddibly bright and we weren’t really sure where we were looking at on the phone 🙂 ) We enjoyed lunch at Chipotle (we got there right when they opened – and got in before the line.  YAY!) And then a lazy Saturday afternoon! It’s was a great end to a stressful week and a great slow beginning to another crazy one as well.

Sunday, we topped off Birthday Weekend with an amazing breakfast at our favorite breakfast spot. mel

Last Thursday night I wasn’t really feeling like running – but it was beautiful out – and I had an hour to kill between work and softball (seriously.  geez) practice.  So, running it was.  On my favorite trail there is a hill called “Angel’s Staircase” – and – as the name describes, it is straight up. My running goal for 3 years has been to run to the top without stopping. AND I DID IT! Along with my fastest mile to date. Pretty freaking amazing runners high after that.10003903_10101104526671788_8200751389560655341_n

My new shoes that I ordered a while back from Zulily came last Friday.  The verdict?  In LOVE.  I’ve been eyeing them forEVER, and really wanted the ones that were all black, but they were on MAJOR sale, so I went with these.  They are so comfy, and I’m so so glad I got them!  They…basically…didn’t leave my feet all weekend!DSC_0195

Monday was a no good – very rotten – horrible day.  Plus Rain.  Plus Cold.  So I turned these:tomInto this:

soupCreamy Roasted Tomato, Garlic, Onion and Coconut Soup by Oh She Glows.  So In Love.  I ATE FIVE BOWLS.  It was so heavenly.  I topped it with some vegan pecan cheese-like-crumbles  (working on a recipe) and some toasted bread cubes.  Wowzers.  Yeah.  Can’t even describe my love for this soup.

Tonight (Thursday) have our first class for our Foster/Adoption certification.  Mega excited! 🙂

Yesterday (Wednesday …and… actually really right now) I had to have two kinda painful procedures…which has currently left me on the couch blogging from my phone…so please forgive 1 typos and 2 the brief nature of today’s pain-killer laden thoughts 🙂

  1. When life gives you tomatoes, turn them into soup? 😆 Tomato soup is one of my favourites, and I could definitely use a bowl with all the crazy cold weather we’ve been having around these parts lately. Ick. Either that or a plate of what you had for breakfast… ’cause daaaaang that looks good.

    • THAT SOUP WAS SOO GOOD. Dang it. I want some more now just looking at it. So creamy 🙂
      The breakfast was amazing too – We’ve always loved that place, but I’ve struggled to find a new ‘go to’ menu item since gluten and I parted ways. This result = perfect. 🙂 Happy Thursday!

  2. Woo Hoo!! Congratulations on making it up the hill the whole way! What an incredible achievement Also, I’ll be keeping you in my prayers that you heal quickly from whatever pain you may be going through.

  3. EHMAGEHRD. I love those Vibrams! I have a pair of gray ones that I rock any chance I get. I even took it as far as wearing them with a sun dress over the weekend. I know, I digress. But yours are adorable –so much so I am googling a pair for myself now…! 😉
