Me. Yes. Me.
Yesterday I pretended I led a very simple life. It was fun.
I brushed off work and pending deadlines and decided they could wait. I actually think I’m going to do that more often. I actually think I just need to start saying “no” more often. We all say that though don’t we?
I forgot to share this from the boy’s devotional the other day. I love it though. Every new day is a gift. It’s nice to have a reminder every now and then.
I didn’t run yesterday. My whole body hurt from the race Sunday. It still does actually so I’m not running today either.
Even with all the cross training I do, there are muscles and spots in my legs that have never been sore before. Oh man.
I did teach my classes yesterday and have a class to teach today. But, I’m not taking any chances. I may have to throw a little pool running time in today too.
Yesterday instead of working I devoted a good amount of time to hanging out with the boys and losing a few too many times at this game.
Did you know that the head pops up with the other guy wins? I never knew that until yesterday. And yes, my red head popped up a lot.
This morning instead of getting up for an early morning run, the boys and I laid in bed and chatted about Joaquin’s superhero dream he had last night.
He had a dream about superheroes, I had a dream we moved in to a really cool new house. That’s not happening anytime soon. Ha.
The boys got ahold of my camera and took a few pictures for you. I promised I’d post them.
I pretended I knew what I was doing Sunday and actually made fresh salsa for the first time ever with our roasted Hatch Chiles we got. I even made two different versions- regular and chunky.
Both are spicy though. I really didn’t know what I was doing so I threw together Frieda’s Hatch Chiles, a couple jalapeños, garlic salt, Elephant Garlic, Penzeys Spices Salsa Seasoning, a tomato and sea salt.
It turned out pretty well. I made a lot though so it’s pretty much going on anything and everything. How long does salsa last in the fridge? Can I freeze it?
Rice cakes with guacamole and this salsa are fabulous.
Oh random, but so are these coffee flavored Ricky’s Lucky Nuts I had yesterday.
Last night after I got home from the gym, besides my body hurting everywhere I was just pooped. I decided to keep pretending I didn’t have other things to do and threw this Trader Joe’s pizza in the oven.
It’s my favorite frozen pizza from there. I even watched Bachelor in Paradise for a bit. That may have been a mistake.
And now the pretending is over. Back to reality today. At least I got a pretty good night’s sleep to be able to tackle everything that’s about to go down.
By the way, today is the last day to enter the GIVEAWAY to win one of these iFit Active gadgets.
Oh, and it was just announced this morning that Snoop Dogg is going to be the headliner for Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas! How cool is that?
Who wants to come run the Strip at Night with me?
Or Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles 1/2 Marathon (10% discount with MAMAROCKSLA)?
Let’s rock! He he.
Okay, I’m off to make some French Toast this morning by special request. I haven’t forgotten.
Have a great day!
Who can help me? How long does salsa last and can I freeze it?
Who else thinks of the movie Old School when they hear Snoop Dogg? Ha ha.
