I am pretty convinced that the contributors of Real Simple magazine are secretly running the world, with a little help from Oprah and Andy Cooper of course. ;)
It is truly sad that I can spend hours on their website, in particular reading about their ‘new uses for old things’:
I am proud of myself for three reasons this morning:
1) I slept in until almost 9!
2) I did not let the 10 am Albuquerque heat scare me away from a run outside
3) I went all 4.93 miles without walking (heat makes me tired)
It was a nice run I suppose one could say, it took me about 35 minutes so I was going pretty slow and it was flat. I had a hard time because the coffee to water ratio was off balance so I was dying of heat and in need to water. Nothing a few glasses of lime water couldn’t fix though!
I downed those while looking at realsimple.com and checking my email and then ate some leftovers from yesterday’s girly brunch. We had a potluck type thing at my house before heading out for thrift store shopping.
Jen made a berry pie, Leah and Molly made a pizza and cinnamon coffee cake, and I made spinach, tomato and basil egg whites with a fruit salad.
It was a HUGE meal, so much so that I was not hungry again until we went out for Brad’s birthday. It was probably one of the nicest restaurants I have ever been to– it was a hidden steakhouse and you had to have a password to get in! I got a realllly good salad with olives and artichoke hearts, tomatoes and peppericinis, it had so many flavors that it didnt even need dressing.
I love dressing up :) That brings us to now. I am pleasantly exhausted, once again hanging on my porch after eating great food. Jen literally just popped by while I was reheating breakfast–i have had to get rather creative considering we do not have a microwave right now–she was on a bike ride by my house and we are going to go to REI later and get her a backpack for her Europe trip. I can believe I wont see her until the end of July after Monday!
If you notice, there is an absence of coffee in this breakfast. CRAZY I KNOW. :)
