We have a costume party to attend tonight. We seriously considered going as Santa and an elf.
â€¦ But opted for something else. Itâ€™s a good one!
Before costume-hunting, Nicole and I went for a long run (well, long for me, these days!). We did 4.5 â€“ 5 miles, walk/run style. I was pretty proud of myself, even though I really struggled towards the end and had to take more and more breaks. Mileage is mileage!
I had to laugh when Nicole showed up at my house because she was decked out in long sleeves and gloves. We have a running joke (ha!) about how I dress like itâ€™s 20 degrees colder than she does. If sheâ€™s in shorts and a tee, Iâ€™m in fleece pants and a long-sleeve jacket. What can I say? Iâ€™m from Miami!
Anyway, imagine my surprise when she showed up, dressed like it was snowing. I stared at her and said, â€œDo I need gloves, too?â€ And she just looked at me like, Dude, if Iâ€™m wearing gloves, you should wear a parka.
Gloves were nice. It was chilly!
Post-run snack of goat cheese + hummus sandwich with an apple:
And Lunch #2 consisted of these AMAZING dairy-free, gluten-free enchiladas from Trader Joeâ€™s:
So delicious. Loved the sauce.
With steamed kale on the side:
Gotta go work on my costume. Hint: It involves pulling my wedding dress out of the attic (I threw it in a garbage bag on our wedding night, and thatâ€™s how itâ€™s been stored for the last 3 yearsâ€¦ Whoops).
