Oh hey snow, didn’t see you there.
I wasn’t really expecting to get dumped on by snow yesterday, but I can’t say that I mind it. Other than the fact that my car got stuck twice this morning — my own fault, I need new tires.
Besides spinning my wheels and having a Mines campus police car having to push me up a hill, I’m enjoying looking out my window at the snow-covered trees. (I was dropping my boyfriend off at school this a.m and he ended up being more later to class than if he had just walked. Oops! That’s what you get for asking my baby sedan to try and make it up the icy hills of Golden).
I’m in a lighthearted, scatter-brained mood this morning, so this post will surely reflect that.
Let’s get random!
A puffy jacket!! Too bad the majority of them cost an arm & a leg. A friend of mine has the Patagonia down jacket and LOVES it. I might have to splurge. I’m also looking at these:
This Columbia Omni-Heat Baselayer from Heather at Just a Colorado Gal! I won it in an #omniten movie line contest that Heather held on her blog. Who would have thought being able to recall odd lines in flicks would score me some Columbia swag? It just arrived this morning, so I haven’t been able to test it out just yet (besides wearing it around the house..which is what I’m doing now), but I’ll keep you guys posted! It’s my first time trying the omni-heat technology!
This yummy breakfast that I had the other day. It was banana overnight french toast (SO GOOD) and a green smoothie. I’ve been making a lot of whole-ingredient juices in my Ninja blender. It’s a lot more filling than regular juicing AND you can hardly tell that it’s a smoothie and not a juice if you use a high-powered blender.
This particular recipe included 1 honeycrisp apple, handful of spinach, about 6 baby carrots juice form half a lemon and some ice/water.
…I’m sore as crap from lunges. Does anyone else get SUPER sore from lunges? I swear it’s the only leg exercise that makes my butt and inner thighs just DIE the next couple of days. Squats ain’t got nothin’ on lunges.
The Fault in Our Stars. Such a wonderful, well written novel. John Green’s writing is BEAUTIFUL and this story cuts straight to your heart. I’m about 75% of the way through it right now, and have a feeling I will be bawling at the end. I’ll keep y’all updated.
Also, apparently they are coming out with a movie. Shailene Woodly is going to play Hazel. She’s also playing Tris in Divergent. Am I the only one who thinks this is absurd?? She just bugs me for some reason! B.A ,Dauntless-loving Tris can’t be the girl from Secret Life of the American Teenager. She can’t.
Well, it’s back to work I go! Next up on the agenda, emails, calls and then some CrossFit. Have a great day!
