Monday - July 4 - Celebrating the USA, Mexican Style ... I made "Mexican Chicken Burgers" from a recipe from "Food on the Table" - if you havent checked out that site, you really should Google it. Its pretty awesome. But that was made with minced garlic, taco seasoning, onions & topped with an avacado salsa. Had Pepper jack cheese on it too... & potatoes with salsa on them. It was the best 4th of July dinner I've ever had.
Tuesday - July 5 - I love baby blankets... I've met some pretty awesome people on Daily Mile ... a husband & wife team are expecting their 3rd baby girl. When I met them face to face at a race in March, I knew I had to knit them up a blanket to celebrate with them. I just really love making something knowing exactly who the project is going to. It makes me just say some prayers specifically for that baby right along with the stitches ... Congrats Corey & Damary on the soon to be new addition!
Wednesday - July 6 - I dont care if I'm grown up - I still like barrettes ... I got a new flower barrette for me. Yes for me - not for my nieces or a little girl. Sometimes I need 'em too to keep my hair from falling down while I'm working at my desk. So if I'm going to be productive, might as well be cute too - right?
Thursday - July 7 - No Picture... I dont know what the deal is - this is 2nd Thursday's in a row I forgot to take a picture...
Friday - July 8 - Look at that yard!!! ... with Ricky's back hurt, I needed to get out & cut the grass. We have quite a yard & for most of it, Ricky uses a riding lawn mower. Well, he doesnt trust me on it. I cant say I trust myself on it either. So I did a big part of pushing the mower & getting it done. Holy COW! It was like 90 degrees & you cant tell, but that's an incline - & with trees - its a workout to get that yard finished. And that's just PART of our yard. We have a back part - a side part & then the front yard is the biggest... I was a sweaty mess by the end of it...
Saturday - July 9 - New Running Outfit... & the shorts are a thumbs down. I've said before I've got a new obsession with running shorts. You wouldn't think there is much of a difference - but there really is. I thought I was going to like these - but nope. They kept riding up on the left side. I'm finding out if they're "too long" or "too flappy" - you know, too much material on the sides - they just dont stay in place. They move around. These even were bad because they stuck to my sweat on my legs which drives me nuts. The top, I liked. It breathed & wicked the sweat off... both pieces came from Target. I will say, I've had worse shorts though - I will wear them again - but probably not on race days.
|(Wow - these are REALLY flappy shorts)
& hopefully I'll remember Thursday in this upcoming week :)
