Yesterday, I had a lot of fun hanging out with my best friend. Since she is traveling for business this weekend, she had the day off from work yesterday. It was so nice to spend a relaxing day going out to lunch and shopping. Now that we are all graduated and working girls, it's hard to see each other as often as we'd like. (Next weekend will be a blast because we are all going to Chicago for a bachelorette party! ) Anyways, we just picked up sandwiches for lunch, ran a few errands around Woodbury and then headed to the mall. I picked up 2 pairs of sandals that were on sale from Express and a cute dress from Banana Republic that was nowhere near on sale. I had intended on trying it on just for fun. But it was so cute, so I splurged. I'll post a picture of the dress later.
After dropping my friend off at the airport, I had a relaxing evening at home. My dad and sister are in Denver for the weekend, and my mom was picking my brother up from school so Brody and I had the house to ourselves. I caught up on the season finale of Grey's and then made myself a quick dinner. I didn't feel like cooking anything fancy so I made a salad and a quesadilla. For the quesadilla, I just used 2 small corn tortillas, soy cheese, and salsa. After dinner, Chris came over and we watched a movie with my mom and brother once they were home.
This morning I woke up feeling pretty hungry so I had a light, yet calorie dense breakfast, since I knew I wanted to run before it got too warm. I had a granola-yogurt parfait. I used my last container of honey greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of my homemade granola, 1/4 cup of pb granola, and fresh strawberry slices.
This is exactly what I was craving and hit the spot. Breakfast was about 320 calories.
About an hour later, I went for a run. I did a little over 5 miles. About half a mile away from home, I spotted a deer in the woods. She looked at me with big fearful eyes. I slowed down because I didn't want to scare her but she ran into the woods. I looked back and understood. A tiny little baby bambi walked out of the woods. The baby was tiny and so cute. It was a nice reward at the end of my run.
I'm sorry if there are a lot of typos in this post. The glare of the sun makes it really hard to see my computer screen! I'm about to take a shower and pick my cousin up at the airport. Not sure what the rest of the day's plans are. Have a lovely day!
