Seriously, pancakes were the best part of my weekend. I keed, I keed. But seriously – Paleo pancakes, mmm yum yum.
My weekend started off by joining LA Fitness with my guy. I want to start getting in to more weight training, so this was a necessity. And we got a great deal, thanks to Meghan’s wonderful boyfriend 🙂
In accordance with my half marathon training schedule, I woke up on Saturday
morning afternoon and got in a long(er) run of 6 miles. My pace was super slow (10 min/mile), as per the usual, although I’m blaming some of it on the extreme humidity that set in during the second half of my run. I’m not a fast bear like my co-blogger.
That’s me – after my run – really excited that I didn’t die.
Oh! Before I forget – here is an update on our challenge:
Boyfriend – 32/40
Girlfriend – 35/40
So, I’m up by 3 right now. Looks like my wings will be free on Friday. Winner winner, chicken dinner.
After my run, I was hungrier than…(all the comparisons I thought of are too distasteful for any of you to continue reading our blog, so to ensure that you don’t hate me this early on in our blog-ship and, mostly, for Meghan’s sake, insert your own :-))…so I made the most delicious Paleo pancakes I’ve ever come across. I found them on Paleo Spirit (click that link right now so you can start making these immediately – I don’t care if you’re at work, just do it!) and I haven’t closed out of the webpage on my iPad ever since.
Meghan will usually try the Paleo crap I concoct, but doesn’t often come back for seconds. With these babies, it’s a different story. She LOVES them and she was none too pleased with me for making them when she was not home. Sorry, girl.
Here are some other happenings from the weekend.
Ate this: broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, bacon, and egg.
Hung out with these beautiful ladies.
Made this face*.
Cooked with my boy – veggie and chicken stir fry.
Drank by the fire with the my co-blogger. Our boyfriends came, too 🙂
Got my nails done and broke one the next day.
Went to Ellijay, GA with family to see more family…and a bumble bee.
Said family. There are 8 of us total, but the youngest two weren’t with us.
Also made this face*. Can you tell we’re sisters?
May or may not have participated in this shenanigan* as well.
*Leslee, these are all for you, girl. Happy belated birthday!
Speaking of those sort of pictures, my boyfriend thinks we’re weird because my whole family has always taken pictures like that. Of course we take serious pictures, but after the obligatory, boring ones are over, the photo shoot turns into that of the last picture above. I thought all families took pictures like this, but he doesn’t seem to think there are as many families who do this as I do. Apparently he and his sisters never did. Hmm.
Ok, I think that’s all I’ll bore you with for now, however, there is a mandatory survey to follow.
Here it is:
Do you and your family take funny photos like the ones I take with my family?
Does everyone participate?
Is it a standard part of the family photo-taking process?
Thanks in advance for helping me discover how much of a freak I am!
