Yikes, this summer is flying by and I feel like it is leaving me behind a bit. I have to admit, it has been a really hard transition coming back from vacation. Only two weeks away should not have thrown me for quite so big a loop. And yet it has.
Running, oh my old friend running. I admit, I have been slacking here. I already wake up at 5:30 to go to work so it is hard getting up even earlier to hit the pavement! Wahh wahh wahh. Quit whining right? I am sick of my own whining so I am making a change. I am announcing it here because let’s face it, shame and accountability work wonders on me. Now I will feel obliged to get my butt out of bed earlier because I will feel like someone is aware that I should be- even if no one really is.
And the funny thing is, I miss it. I NEED to get out there. But seriously, 4:30 is UNGODLY.
One thing that would help would be to move closer to work- and we are working on it. We spent all weekend renovating our half bath- which mind you was new 5 years ago. Who does that?! Oh ya, Team North. So far, we think that it is actually looking pretty great. Here is a preview.
I stupidly forgot to take a full before picture so I need to search our archives and find one. Picture it instead- same sink and counter combo, but with a 4 inch granite lip/backsplash thing. The paint was a peanut butter color and we had a silver framed mirror.
Anyways, enough of the DIY. Sadly, with all the DIY, I had NO TIME TO COOK this weekend. Well, I did make a caprese salad on Saturday. There is always time for tomato and basil in the summer.
Despite my lack of kitchen time, I do have a fun and yummy recipe to share. I made this one LAST weekend but since I am so on the ball lately (read the sarcasm?), I am only getting around to posting it now. It is SUPER fast and easy to make- I swear. Enjoy!
