It’s officially Friday, which means it’s time for a little Five Things Friday 🙂
I love Five Things Friday because I get to recap the odds and ends of my week with you AND I feel like I get to know you guys a little bit more with the things you share about your week and weekend in the comment section. So please feel free to share away!!
This week has been kind of crazy for me considering Monday I was sick and actually had to take a sick day. I had a fever, body aches, no appetite, upset tummy…the works and while I did get a bit of school work done I spent most of the day lying on the couch. Brian said that when he got home from school in the evening and I was still laying on the couch covered in blankets he knew I was NOT feeling like myself. I rarely take the time to be cozy and lay around like that, so while the break was nice it made the rest of my week pretty busy.
Luckily, I was still able to complete all my school work so that I am ready to welcome Brian’s mom this morning at the airport for a fun-filled weekend! I realize it’s also Valentine’s Day, but Brian and I don’t really have any plans :/ and I’m ok with that!
Anyways….have a great weekend and happy Valentine’s (or Galentine’s!) Day 🙂
This is such a satisfying, simple, and tasty breakfast. Especially after not feeling well, the warmth of this bowl really hit the spot.
I am on a serious kombucha kick. If I feel like I need a little something, but I’m not quite hungry for a snack or a meal kombucha totally hits the spot 🙂 I have been loving almost every flavor and brand I try, but I snagged a bottle of this stuff because it was from a local CO company!
I topped these with mashed banana, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Super filling and tasty.
Last night was a kind of clean-out-the-fridge night so we each enjoyed tasty salads loaded with everything. My salad had: romaine, cucumber, carrots, bell pepper, sauerkraut, chicken, hard boiled egg, celery, broccoli, dijon, a touch of olive oil, and red wine vinegar. So good!
Considering I was sick on Monday, I haven’t really done that many workouts this week. I took Monday and Tuesday off completely but got back on track on Wednesday…so here is a look at what I did!
With Cooper (our friend, Kate’s dog!)
Last Saturday, Brian, Kate and I took Bernie and Cooper to Elk Meadow in Evergreen. There is a huge open space for dogs and lots of ground to cover so it’s great for getting out a bit of vizsla and labradoodle energy.
The boys just had a blast, but I think it is so funny looking at the photos because Bernie is SO serious-looking and Cooper just looks like he is having the time of his life. HA!
While Brian and I are not shopping for a house, someday we will move on from apartment living. We love looking at this instagram account for beautiful home-decor inspiration. Everything is so pretty!
I received a TON of cook books this Christmas, one of them being the Against All Grain cook book. Brian and I have been cooking up lots of new recipes on the weekends, and last weekend we cooked up this soup. It used so many flavors and spices that were unfamiliar to our kitchen and tastebuds but it was absolutely WONDERFUL!! We highly recommend trying this recipe out 🙂
She came this same weekend last year and met Bernie for the first time. Can you believe how little he was?! We are looking forward to a fun weekend in Denver with her 🙂
Happy weekend friends!
