Thursday or Friday? Hoody GIVEAWAY!

Did today feel like a Friday, or was that just me?

That one's for the introvert in me.

Seriously, I laughed for about five minutes when I read this one.

If you caught my post on Facebook tonight (do you follow BLWB? it's the coolest thing to do!), you know that I made two meals tonight: one for us and one for a coworker going through a tough time. A bunch of us signed up to help her out with meals this week, and it was fun to get in the giving spirit before the holidays!

For us, I made a new pasta recipe; I'll definitely share the magic with you guys, because it was phenomenal! [And I also promise to share a photo with you as soon as I find the cord that connects my camera to my computer.]

For my coworker, I decided to go with some classic comfort food:

  • Homemade chicken noodle soup
  • Sourdough bread (with a card that suggests what to do with it - dip it in the soup, bake homemade croutons, make garlic toast)
  • Mixed green salad with vinaigrette dressing
I hope she likes it! I get so nervous making food for others; usually I just cook for me and Terry. I'm eager to hear what she thinks. 

Tonight's boot camp workout called for 40 minutes of cardio and some crazy difficult planks. I ended up only completing 30 minutes on the treadmill because my IT bands were aching, and I'm vowing to do a solid 10 minutes of foam rolling to solve that problem. Tomorrow is also my last chance to complete Goal 1 for this week: working out before work. Honestly, I'm kinda cheating, because we have an inservice day tomorrow (teacher meetings, but no students), which means I don't need to be there at 6:45 like the rest of this week. So I think I'll get up at 5, complete my circuit workout and intervals, and leave the house by 7. Wish me luck!

  2. How can I pick just one favorite thing about fall and winter?? The changing leaves, the cooler temperatures, the warm comfort foods, pumpkins, pies, holidays, family time, snow days, warm cider, and so much more. Nope, certainly can't pick just one!

  4. Living in Pennsylvania I LOVE fall because of all the gorgeous leaves! (My husband hates how they cover our lawn, but whatever...) My kids and I crunch them and admire their colors every day on the way to the bus stop. And of course I LOVE fall running--it's such a relief to run without wanting to pass out within the first 5 seconds :-)

  11. I guess my favorite thing about fall is getting to wear sweaters, sweatshirts and beanies. Nothing better than being all bundled up on a brisk day. Too bad it's supposed to be 88 degrees in SoCal today :-(

  12. The thing I love most about fall and winter weather is the changing of the leaves. Growing up in the Bay Area, we didn't really get to see a huge change, but now that I live outside the Bay, I have a real appreciation for how nature decides to tell us its time to put the shorts away, and bring out the jackets. Also, there is just something about rain that puts me at ease. I don't know if its the sound, or the smells, but I like the rain. Oh, and with colder weather comes soup season. And I LOVE soup!!!!

    I'd tweet this, but I don't have tweeter.
