I hope everyone’s weekend was a good one!
I know this recap is a little late, but it has been a busy Monday, so here’s what I was up to over the weekend.
* I put my baker’s hat on and baked some Zucchini Bread Muffins.
* I bought a new water bottle. Isn’t getting a new water bottle fun? It makes me want to drink more water than usual!
* I got a manicure~before and after pictures.
I dug into this dark chocolate for a sweet treat one night. I was really excited to try this flavor because I love some of the other flavors in this line. Sadly, I could not taste any hint of blueberry in the chocolate. But I wasn’t too disappointed because I still liked the chocolate.
* I also got two new pairs of running shorts! Is it bad that I now own 4 pairs of Nike Tempo running shorts?
I couldn’t resist buying this pair–the color is so fun and bright!
The Nike Tempo shorts were on sale at Sports Authority for $19.99 (originally $28). I also had a $10 gift card that the store sent to me in the mail, so 2 pairs of shorts for $30!
* I tried a new breakfast item this morning.
As I was reading blogs this weekend, I came across this recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Overnight Oats from The Edible Perspective. I had some pumpkin in the freezer, so I thought this would be an excellent way to use it!
Wow! What a great treat for breakfast. The soft serve banana tricked my mouth into thinking I was eating ice cream for breakfast! Definitely worth a try. I did add some agave nectar because it wasn’t quite sweet enough for this little sweet tooth of mine!
* I also made Protein Bars.
I’ll be honest in saying I am kind of on the fence about these. I’ve made this recipe many times in the past, which does say something. But I think it is the texture that takes some getting used to. They have a sort of mealy texture to them, but I still find myself craving them. I’d be interested in someone else’s review on these.
I enjoyed a nice 8-mile run after work tonight. I could definitely feel fall in the air!
And speaking of fall, can you believe that I saw trees starting to turn colors already in Anchorage!! This is not okay, people! It isn’t even September! I am not ready for fall yet; I don’t even feel like summer has been here! Sigh.
