Dates and Pecans

in All Posts

Sorry I bailed on blogging last night; I just needed to take a hiatus.   I got the BIGGEST post-wedding To Do finished!


Finished the thank you’s!  I also got professional pictures printed for the bridal party’s cards.


It was fun to relive all my wedding memories!


I actually woke up late (again) and I was SORE as all h-e-double hockey sticks.  Jillian Michaels destroyed my abs and shoulders last night! I’m going to wait until later to see if I can do the Shred tonight.  (I also pushed back my run to tonight).


Breakfast was quick and easy:


My oatmeal contained:


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 sliced banana
  • Toppings: chopped dates and pecans


Holy YUM!


And…. I’m off to work! Sure wish I had hot water to shower with (yes, we still don’t have hot water).

    you picked the perfect day to have pecan’s; today is national pecan day! yay!

    Your wedding pics are great! When was your wedding again?

    It’s so much fun to re-live the memories. We got married last August and are still waiting on the album. I can’t wait to re-live the day again through the pictures.

    Hope you have a great day!

    Isn’t that the best feeling, sending off that last thank you card?

    Your pictures are beautiful!

    Argh! I was so sorry from Level 3 too! My shoulders and abs are killing. Last night I did Level 2 again after my 2 mile run. Its all I could handle. Tonight I might go back down to Level 1 since I’m still feeling it this morning!

    Congrats on finishing up the thank you cards! That’s a big thing to check off your list!

    Hope you start feeling less sore. But it’s a good sore right? Haha.

  • Mica March 25, 2009, 5:38 am

    Mmm, dates. I want some now. Too bad no stores are open. 🙁

  • RunToFinish March 25, 2009, 5:43 am

    oh man the water situation stinks!! no pun intended

  • Betsy March 25, 2009, 5:44 am

    No hot water?? Ugh. At least you have water though… 2 years ago over New Years we had NO water for 5 days. That was pure hell!

  • Anonymous March 25, 2009, 6:21 am

    what did you eat last night??

  • Brittney March 25, 2009, 6:22 am

    I would go crazy if I didn’t have hot water! But I guess having cold water is better then having no water.

  • Amanda March 25, 2009, 6:22 am

    yum! that oatmeal looks fantastic. way to go on the thank yous, must be a great feeling to cross that one off!!

    I continue the obsession with your yellow bridesmaid dresses. And, I love pecans so much. I want to make peacan butter next.

    I just read about your to-do list from yesterday. Excellent work! 🙂
