Sorry for disappearing this past week. It was a busy one! I worked in downtown Chicago all week and long work days combined with the long-ish commute via the Metra resulted in my arrival at home around 8pm daily. Rough but I would take downtown Chicago over crappy cornfields any day!
This past weekend was like all the other ones. I think it’s time I move out to the city because I swear I become more and more anti-social daily while in suburbia. Anyway, check out some frames from this past weekend…
(Quick Friday afternoon shopping trip to HomeGoods – “I shop therefore I am” ← ain’t that the truth!)
(Friday night housewarming party with my favorite ladies. Tequila, gum balls, and board games were involved…)
(Weekend breakfasts: the perfect bowl of oats, choco-cherry microwave buckwheat bake, homemade whole wheat crepes filled with fresh figs and sunflower seed butter)
(Weekly trip to Whole Foods: new loofa + lemon soap, goodies on the check-out line, the greatest freshly baked whole wheat bread ever, a beautiful post-storm rainbow)
(Mid-Saturday FroYo craving: I brought it home with kiwi as the only purchased topping and added more toppings myself! Chocolate chips, mango, blueberries, and coconut)
(The perfect way to end a lazy Saturday: a beautiful pink/red sunset while taking a 2 mile walk with mom. My mom is starting to slowly run with me!)
(A quick pit-stop to R.E.I: trying on new shoes for a replacement, salt pills + blister guards + foot massage ball)
(Disastrous Sunday morning – our laundry machine overflowed!)
(Don’t be surprised by this one…two batches of Happy Trails Adventure Cookies! I’m clearly obsessed)
(Sunday night food: grilling veggies and veggie sausages, portobello mushroom open-faced sandwich, post-5-miler green smoothie with kale and spirulina, strawberry Trawffles!)
Happy Monday! I’m working out of our Chicago office again this week and am ecstatic about it. It’s truly amazing what three weeks away from the cornfields can do for one’s well-being.
