A relaxing morning and my new favorite snack

Most mornings I wake up at 4:45 and rush to get ready, pump, and get myself and all of my crap luggage into the car and make it to yoga for a 6 am class…and it takes me about a half hour to get there. I’m stressing out just writing about it!

I had planned on doing my usual routine this morning, but I decided to hit snooze and I got up when AB woke up around 6:30. I fed her and we snuggled for a little while and it was the perfect way to spend a dreary morning.

I finally left the house and made a quick stop to make my morning even better.

During lunch, I enjoyed a sweaty but easy paced 6 miles. It felt really good to just run and not worry about time or pace :-).

The only thing that gets me through the afternoon at work is snack time. I really liked today’s snack.

Bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and almond butter. Yum! I’m really sorry it looks gross in the picture…it was the opposite of gross.


Since I am always thinking about food, I cannot wait to get home for ice cream cake a healthy dinner!

What did you snack on today?

Thursday’s Simple Pleasures

Sometimes the little things in life are all you need. 🙂

1.  Going to a morning yoga class. I am lucky to have a husband that is perfectly happy to spend some QT with Annabelle while I go to yoga, run, bike, etc.

2.  Starbucks Venti Iced Soy Chai after yoga class.  This is just water because I drank it before taking the picture, but you get the idea. 😉


3.  Afternoon nap with Annabelle.  I’m really going to miss doing this everyday once I go back to work.


4.  Molly…she is such a sweet dog.  She sits on the ottoman and looks for her friends outside.

5.  Seeing my dad hold Annabelle.  She has him wrapped around her finger already :).


6.  Opening a few windows and letting in the fresh spring air.

7.  AB asleep in her crib and the O’s game is starting.


My mom, AB, and I are flying to Florida to visit my brother and his family tomorrow.  We are so excited!  Wish us luck for Annabelle’s first plane ride!
