Weekend wrap-up

Cause I go back to work tomorrow morning.

My new injini toe socks came!!! I bought the color no one else wanted and got it for $3 cheaper. Love it!!! And they still work just as well.

Date night Thursday night. I fixed my hair before we went out lol. Thanks for the wrap thing mom!!!!!!

Wow I take bad pictures sometimes lol

We FINALLY saw deadpool 2, at the $4 movie theater near us…….I laughed a lot and very loudly. Like I think I embarrassed Brandon hahaahaha!!!

Then we went to breakfast the next morning at this amazing place called Word of Mouth Neighborhood Bistro. I think I mentioned it a few weeks ago. We have a 30 min wait so we walked around a bit. We took his parents for their birthdays.

My breakfast…..of which there is still some in the fridge and I ate just that all day. The portions are HUGE.

Everybodies plates.

They are famous for their cinnamon roll pancakes so Brandon got one to go and OMG they did not disappoint.

Then it was homework time for me.

The rest of Friday was homework and food coma laziness.

Saturday we slept in a bit then got our butts out the door for our 5 mile run.

I totally tripped and ate it around mile 2 hahahahaaha, I ended up with a sweat dirt mark and that was after I washed off in the river.

Artemis was dead tired after. I cant tell if she is just lazy from a winter of no activity or if she is getting old.

The socks were a success!!! Now I just need Artemis to not eat the toes. I have lost 1 pair of toe socks that way. And a other one just disappeared….unless she ate those too and I never noticed hahahaha.

Dinner…….running makes you hungry….I might have had a 3rd one.

Then he suffered through this with me……but I LOVED it!!!! It was so cute and as someone who has been overweight before it totally resonated with me!!!! Confidence in yourself is sexy!!!!!

How was your weekend?

Garden update 8/1

Happy August 1st!!!!

Traffic was not horrendous today which was nice. Got home, a quick snack and changed into partial workout gear hahaha.

She is impatiently waiting for us to go do out watering in the yard.

Raspberries!!!! Well raspberry plants, they are still growing but not really producing anymore.

One of Brandon’s newly panted areas. The front yard is mostly his domain and he wants it to look presentable.

More newly planted flowers…..that i got free from someone at work woohoo!!!

broccoli!!!!!!

mixture of lettuce, flowers and my herb garden. we have basil, sage, thyme, rosemary, and oregano along with my little fig plant that is very SLOWLY growing.

My pear tree is having a growth spurt

Another area that Brandon has created. He has a good eye for yards actually.

Pea season has definitely come to an end. I am slowly getting one or two peas here and there that are no where near as sweet and wonderful as the ones at the beginning of the season. I have a bag in the freezer that i am slowly adding to, it will be good to throw in soups over the winter.

These tomatoes are finally starting produce a bit. The artichoke plant is still just there lol. The cucumber plant is hanging on, i have gotten one cucumber off it so far. The bell pepper plant is just starting to get its first pepper. and the chive are new and doing pretty well.

She LOVES to roll around in the grass. She never did this before we moved here. I think she likes it a lot.

2nd batch of onions, they are surviving!!!!

Pepper plants!

Summer squash…….do you see it?

My 2 lone pumpkins. I have cut them from the stalks and they are starting their curing process. I don’t need them to last months though, just until classes are over then i will cook with them.

This is our neighbors plum tree, i would say 1/3 is hanging over into our yard and i am watching like a hawk for ripe plumbs i can take from out side!!!!!!

Zucchini is still producing like crazy!!!!

Look how many are starting to turn colors!!!! Just a few more days!!!!

That is a cucumber plant growing in among the tomatoes, snaking its vines wherever it can find space.

The last bit of lettuce is holding on in the heat and letting us get a few leaves here and there as we need them.

That is the garden currently.

Today i made zucchini bread and zucchini pasta salad for lunch tomorrow.

Ran some sprints for run training……..my fastest sprints were in the 8 min mile time frame hahahahahaha this is hilarious because that is a lot of runners normal or slightly pushing it pace……there are people who run marathons doing 5 min miles and i am dying doing 8 min for 45 secs. But you know what………I AM DOING IT!!!! And i am proud of that no matter how slow I am.

I am about 1/2 of the way done with my essay that is due tomorrow at midnight but it is 10pm and that is my bedtime if i don’t want to be a zombie tomorrow. Plus the due date is tomorrow so i can afford to go to sleep.

Thank you for following along!!!

Hope you had a wonderful day!!!!
