My early morning run seemed to put a damper on my normal appetite today. I wasn’t craving a mid-morning snack, but I figured I should eat something just to re-fuel:
And about an hour later, I had lunch:
I love BAKED TOFU! Coat it in maple syrup and pepper and pop in the oven for 30 minutes. It’s so simple and amazing.
With rice and green beans.
I’m currently eating this bowl of yogurt and granola. I have to go into job #2 today (groan) and need to get my snack in ASAP.
I Have a Sister!
Fun fact about me: I’m an only child. So, when I married the Husband, I was very excited to get not only 1 sibling, but 4! The Husband has 1 sister and 3 half-brothers.
I always, always wanted a sister growing up. Sophie is a great sister-in-law!
Here’s Sophie and my mother-in-law at our rehearsal dinner:
And here’s my family on the subway in England in 2006. We were going to watch a soccer/football match. Notice how my mom, myself, and my brother in law are all wearing jerseys, and Sophie is wearing a glamorous dress.
Sophie was also one of my bridesmaids. I was very honored that she wanted to be a bridesmaid!
Sophie is one of the most glamorous women I’ve ever met. I think she’s secretly a celebrity in hiding. I probably sound really dorky saying this, but she’s just so COOL. Hell, she lives in LONDON and goes on vacations to Italy and Africa! She’s also extremely fun and has been a great big sister to the Husband.
After 8 long years, Sophie FINALLY received her green card and is moving to Florida from England! The whole family (especially me!) is so excited.
Sophie is a runner, too and we have plans to do a few 5Ks together. Wahooo!
Do you feel like you "fulfill" your only, middle, youngest, or oldest child "role"?
I have always wondered if you are an only child. I am too. If they boy and I ever get married I will have a sister and a brother. As a kid I never wanted siblings, but I definitely love the boy's sister! I feel like we can talk about anything! How exciting that your SIL is moving close by!!
