Hey, hey! Happy Friday, friends!
I’m so glad that the weekend is just about here! We’re celebrating Mal’s birthday this weekend, and I cannot wait. I love birthdays so much! Well, ok, I’m just meh about my own, but I love celebrating other people’s birthdays! 🙂
So, recently, I’m on the hunt for the perfect protein oatmeal combo that I can make in the microwave. I’m coming close to an awesome recipe, but I haven’t nailed it down yet. Will report back. Side note: I recently switched the type of collagen that I use to a marine one because I have a sensitivity to beef. I knowwwwww. With summer and barbecues right around the corner, it’s going to be so sad saying no to burgers right off the grill!
After breakfast, I got to work on a “live” photo shoot that I did with the National Honey Board. I photographed four recipes on Monday, but then ran out of sunlight, so we bumped the final one. And, guys, I seriously can’t wait to share this collection of recipes with you!! So much deliciousness!
Poor Murphy is always SO HUNGRY.
Once I wrapped up the photo shoot, I snacked on a rice cake with some Honey White Bean Hummus on top (aka “cookie dough” to Quinn).
I ate the rice cake while cleaning up the house after the photo shoot, and I made such a mess. The rice cake basically exploded in my hand, but, of course, Murphy was on clean-up duty in 2 seconds!
After that, I headed out for a quick run. My legs felt like a million pounds, and I stopped to walk at one point, but I had NO HIP PAIN and it was the farthest I’ve run in 2017! 🙂
After that, we stopped by the Capital One Cafe for a meeting with a marketing company that we’re hiring for DTFN. We finalized some details, and we can’t wait to get started with them! Kerrie and I have had our noses in our computers for months now, so we’re excited to finally amp things up and spread the word about DTFN!
Before I left Derby Street, I swung by Barnes & Noble to grab the June issue of Runner’s World.
My love for coffee finally paid off! Check out my ideas for “quick bites” that pair well with coffee! So cool!
After that, I picked Qman up from school and headed home. He was hungry and asked me for what sounded like “Thomas and milk,” which I soon realized was HUMMUS and milk. Haha! I was hungry too, so Qman and I had a little happy hour on the porch while we waited for Dada to get home.
When Mal got home, we took Murphy for a family walk around the neighborhood. Qman decided to wear his Batman rain boots, which wasn’t the best decision considering it was 90 degrees outside.
His feet were “so hot” when we got home. Poor kid, but he learned an important life lesson! 🙂
