Weekend Recap

August 30, 2010

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 got a light pink color because I’m not a bold, out-there kind of person.

* I bought some new chocolate!

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.

    1. we must be twins or something. 1) i get really excited about new waterbottles too. everyone else thinks i’m weird. 2) i love nike tempo shorts! i got a pair from their vintage or retro line this summer, so cute! 3) i think we have the exact same/very similar wedding/engagement rings. love it!

    1. honey
      me and sallach thought those muffins were awesome. they tasted great on the canoe trip. your nails also look awesome.

    1. If it’s bad that you have 4 pair of Tempo shorts, is is extra extra bad that I have 10 pairs of Tempo shorts?? I have been acquiring them over the past 3-4 years though. I can’t say I’ve bought any on sale though. That NikeTown store in Chicago gets me everytime we visit.
