I don’t know about you, but all of my coworkers are either A) really healthy or B) still doing well on their resolutions to be really healthy. And good for them! But…that wasn’t my resolution. I’m not unhealthy be any means, but I’m also not cutting carbohydrates like a few of them. I’m not cutting carbs from anything. Ever. How could you do that?! I just don’t understand a world without bread and pasta. I feel like Regina George on Mean Girls: “Is butter a carb??”
So, have you seen the milkshake food truck driving around in your area recently? Exactly, there isn’t one (well maybe there is but I haven’t seen it!) and that’s what I want to drive one day. Seriously, I’d love to own a milkshake truck because I LOVE milkshakes! I consider myself a milkshake connoisseur and a somewhat milkshake snob. I believe the best milkshakes are the ones that require a spoon and straw. Chocolate milkshakes should never be made with chocolate ice cream, but with with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. And, when at a restaurant, the best part of the milkshake comes not in the pretty glass but in the cold tin cup. Like I said, I LOVE milkshakes! Continue reading
Have you read Born To Run yet? If you haven’t, drop everything and go pick up a copy and read it. Now. Seriously guys, it’s that good. Kelly read the book first and mailed it to me, telling me to read it. However I looked at the title and thought “Meh, I don’t feel like reading some motivational-get-you-inspired-to-run-and-love-running book” and set it aside. Fast forward a few months and I finally decided to start reading. I was hooked. Immediately. I kept telling my boyfriend over and over “you have to read this! It’s so good!” But you see, he’s not a runner and had a pile of other books to read, so he too set it aside for months. Well, now that he’s read it (in under a week I think) and has become obsessed with running more and eating healthier, I think I’m regretting my decision to make him read it (aka I’m lazy). He had me hiking/trail running every day last week with him. 5 miles! Up hill! Ok ok, I can’t complain too much. It was almost 60 degrees here and this was our view from the top:
Happy Monday friends! Don’t you just love Mondays?? Oh wait…maybe that’s just me. Since I work a weekend shift, technically Mondays are my “Fridays” and I end up the most chipper person at work! But in case you’re like the rest of the world and don’t have an impending weekend (aka Tues/Wed/Thurs) to be lazy and do nothing like I do…perhaps these cookies will brighten your day.

February 2014 is almost over… what?!? I feel like it was just Halloween and now you can see St. Patrick’s Day decorations all over the grocery store! This year is flying by, of course every year seems to fly as you get older. I tend to think of the calendar year as an oval. More specifically, kind of like an elongated clock (elongated at 3 and 9) without the times but January starts at where 3:00 is and ends where 12:00 would be located. So I guess that’s a funky clock that moves backwards but it’s oval/clock nonetheless. I also tend to think of the calendar in colors. Let me explain. Continue reading
