Weekend Quickie

I hurried home from school on Friday so I could get in a quick run before Matt got home. It was a HOT one!IMG_0264

After all, we actually had plans for Friday night.  I showered up and we went to grab a bite to eat at Ruthie’s Mexican.  We headed to No Label Brewery to meet up with a few friends.  The wind was so frickin’ strong….it sucked.  But, it sure was nice catching up.

Saturday morning, after a few beers, I had a hard time rolling out of bed. I got up and made this deliciousness.


I enjoyed a 5-ingredient pancake (banana, 2 eggs, vanilla, flax seed, and cinnamon) smeared with almond butter and real maple syrup.  I sipped on some coffee and watched the Today Show….man, I have a rough life!

We later got it together and ran to Lowe’s.  It is not possible to make it out of that store without spending like $100.  After Lowe’s we went to Whole Foods to buy some groceries.  We each had a half of sandwich and cup of soap for lunch.  Since I couldn’t find everything I like at Whole Foods, we then ran to HEB to finish up our shopping.  I now know why my dad goes to both Hy-Vee AND Fairway. Such a pain sometimes, but there are just some things that cost an arm and a leg at Whole Foods….

Saturday night we stayed in and enjoyed this appetizer before dinner. Caprese salad….


I ran outside to our garden in the torrential downpour to get some basil from our garden.  I was soaked! We literally got 1 inch of rain every hour (And it poured for 5 hours) and the lightning/thunder was crazy.  You just put grape tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella on a toothpick and voila! Then pour some olive oil and balsamic vinegar on them with a pinch of salt and pepper.

I was fast asleep like a little angel by 9:30.  Yea, I know I’m pretty lame. 

Woke up early and relaxed for a bit and ate a small breakfast.  I didn’t want to eat a lot because I was meeting a bunch of girls out for lunch today for Jessica’s birthday.  After breakfast, Matt and I went for a run (5 miles, with 10 pushups every mile).  It was killer. Then we hit up some sit ups in the garage. I knew I was going to have to do a lot since I was going out for lunch and a drink 😉

Question: Do you go to two different stores to buy your groceries or am I crazy?
