Good morning friends.
Whelp, it’s Monday. Fun, right? Usually I’m dragging Monday mornings, but today for some reason I got up feeling super excited about the week and felt like getting on the treadmill.
Mondays, our schedule is so crazy it’s usually hard to try to figure out when and if I’m going to get a short run in. Today I felt like getting up and doing it first thing. So, that’s what I did.
Gossip Girl, Old treadmill, 5 easy miles. Done.
It was the perfect way to start the day.
Unfortunately I waited a little too long to make coffee and spot cleaned the kitchen floor with veggie wash instead of cleaner. Nice.
But, when I did get around to making my coffee I made something fun.
The perfect iced Americano.
Check it out.
I did my usual Starbucks espresso brewing on the stove, but added a few of these cinnamon chunks I got during my Penzys spice stop.
We put another new Penzys purchase to good use last night with some pork loins too. I never buy pork, but my mom used to make the best pork and stuffing bake thing so I was craving it the other day.
STUFT Daddy barbequed. Simple combination. Deliciousness.
Random, but this is our family favorite marinara sauce. We buy it as Costco. Seriously, it tastes gourmet.
Since we’re down to our last zucchini around here, it reminded me I lever showed you my fun zucchini noodle salad I made.
All I did was shred the zucchini lengthwise to make long noodles and then add the same things that go into Tutu’s green beans (garlic, white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, seasoning) and let it all sit in the fridge for a couple hours. Man it was good.
I should have made more cold zucchini salads over the summer. Oh well. Maybe next year.
It’s squash season now.
I can’t wait to get my hands on it! You can order it here.
Um, a couple things stood out, having to do more Yasso 800s and that the MCM marathon is 5 weeks away. Oh my gosh! Eeeekkkk…..
That means the whole Mizuno Marathon Mezamashii Week is just 4 weeks away.
Oh, and speaking of racing, this just happened.
Yep. We’re in. We’re trying it again.
Kind of hard to wrap my head around, so trying not to get too excited or anything. We’ll see how thing pan out.
Oh, and today Pro Compression released the new Sock of the Month.
Go here to order these bad boys.

Okay, well, that’s about it for now. The rest of the day is going to be a bit nutty, so we better get on with it.
I’ll leave you with just a couple of things.
A certain Kitty finally got a much needed bath and is ready for a new week.
Some cute dudes are already getting excited for Monday night football with Daddy.
This was my favorite moment last night. Just watching my men play a bit after church.
We will never forget to wave again.
Here’s little Runner’s World Quote of the Day for some Monday motivation.
Yes, yes we are.
Have a good one!
