Fall Shows

by Cait on September 17, 2011

Today was the perfect mix of lounging around and productivity!

I went on a baking spree this morning (as already mentioned) which resulted in a very fragrant and wonderfully smelling home :)

By 1pm I was FAMISHED and threw together a quick lunch:

I took a honey wheat flatbread, slathered the inside with hummus, added carrots and lettuce then sliced up my VERY FIRST HONEYCRSIP of the season!!

It hit the spot perfectly.

Around 3pm I headed out for a 5 miler in the beautiful cool weather.  It.  Was.  AWESOME.

This type of weather just makes me want to do nothing but run.  It seriously can’t be beat.

Planks followed (don’t let the smile fool you – I HATE planks!)

Then a trip to Target.  We got a bunch of bins to begin our packing process.

This still hasn’t happened.

Hopefully tomorrow some progress will be made.  I think I’m in denial.

I took a nice loooooong bubble bath (<— for sore muscles) following our Target trip and when I got out, I started in on dinner!

We tried a new Malbec tonight!

It was okay.  Definitely not as good as the Alamos but still tasty!

For the rest of the meal I roasted up some jumbo brussel sprouts and corn:

Then sauteed chicken and andouille sausage in a pan…

Such a good flavor combo.  Loved the spice that the andouille added.

A perfect end to a perfect day.

We’re curled up on the couch now and watching 90210 – can’t believe the Fall shows are already starting!  NUTS!

Hope everyone had lovely Saturdays!!

I’m confused by your garmin time – it says you ran it in 36 mintues, but you had a 9:30-something pace? Anyways, great job on the run!

Haha – the pace doesn’t stay, it constantly changes to match whatever your pace at the moment is – I think I averaged 7:30s or so :) But thank you!

I thought 90210 was pretty cute – that Liam – oy. Not the romantic, right?!

So glad they’re back!

Smile or not – go you with those planks!

And thank you :)

Wasn’t today such a refreshing day to run!? I wish that I had waited until later in the day because it was so cold out at 7 this morning.. but I had things to do. I love how outdoor runs are no longer held captive the early mornings! YAY FALL!

YES! It was really perfect :) And I know, I agree. It was so nice to know that I could go between 1 and 3pm and wouldn’t have to worry about overheating!

Any day that involves a trip to Target is a good day to me! :-)

Good luck with the packing!

I hate planks too but I love the feeling afterwards! I love watching 90210 too! Can’t wait until the new season! :)

Yum! Great looking dinner! I need to get some corn in before it go’s away for the season!

What does Malbec taste like? I like sweeter wines, so I’m always afraid of trying something new! :)

It’s pretty sweet for a rich red – definitely my favorite new varietal!

Love the delicious apples that come out during the fall season…I love Honeycrisps too and Pinklady’s!

I went through a HUGE pink lady phase several years ago. I’ve since moved away from them, but they’re definitely good!
