Yesterday was the hubs birthday. So to celebrate his birthday, I woke up early and went for a 6 mile run while he stayed in bed since he’s an old guy now.
Haha! Just kidding! Sort of.
For the past few runs, I’ve been trying out new socks. The nice people at Sof Sole recently sent me a few of their Performance Socks. If you’re like me, how a sock fits is huge whether it’s running, walking, hiking, snowboard, or working out in general. You don’t want blisters or super sweaty feet. I like a little cushion too.These socks rock! During each run that I’ve worn them on, it’s been super wet and rainy. I was expecting blisters from my wet feet but I got nothing. My feet felt comfortable the whole time.
While I was running, all I could think about were hard boiled eggs. I had to have one for breakfast. Of course, I didn’t actually get to eat my breakfast till at least an hour after I got home. Mama duty was calling as soon as I walked through the door. I scarfed down an egg and a Kale Protein Smoothie. We just got a new to us protein powder over the weekend – Sun Warrior. It’s good! Not chalky and has nice chocolate flavor.
Ron had the day off but spent the morning getting my car inspected. Happy Birthday! Now pay $300. While he was gone the kids and I wrapped his birthday presents and frosted his cake. (FYI – toddlers can’t keep a secret when it comes to presents. Daddy open Mama’s present. It’s a shirt!) He usually chooses a chocolate cake. Nothing fancy. Just chocolate. This year he decided he wanted a lemon cake with lemon frosting. What? I searched the internet for a good recipe. The one he picked is probably the most sugary thing I have ever heard of. But it’s his birthday so the birthday boy gets what he wants. Just don’t tell him that I modified the recipe. A LOT! 😉
Not so pretty, huh? I can bake but I can’t frost a cake for the life of me. It always looks lumpy and sloppy. It’s what’s on the inside that counts right?
We decided on a birthday lunch rather than a dinner. Ron had been craving a burger lately so we decided on Lexi’s Joint. I got the Green Lantern Bean Burger. EXCELLENT!
The perfect combination of spicy and avocado. Two of my favorites.
Here’s a few random pics of food I’m loving lately:
Lemon Cake w/ Lemon Frosting, Stacy’s Gingerbread Pita Chips (beyond amazing!), Roasted Acorn Squash, Guacamole on a Trader Joe’s British Muffin (so good), Roasted Sweet Potato with scoop of Almond Butter
The rest of the day was pretty low key. Opening presents, eating cake (which was really, really good) and taking an afternoon walk. Isn’t it funny how your birthday’s change as you get older? Before it was all about partying it up. Now, we are content to hang out, relax and enjoy some family time. Like my friend, Kierston says, “It’s the little things.” 🙂
I’m linking up with Jenn for another WIAW.
