Good evening, friends. Itâ€™s chilly out thereâ€¦ Perfect evening curling up on the couch, lighting a pumpkin-y candle, and sipping a cup of hot tea.
Also a perfect evening for a run!
Thank goodness for my running buddy Nicole. Do you have a running buddy, too? Nicole really motivates me to get out there â€“ mainly because I love to talk to her so much. Itâ€™s nice to have a running buddy girlfriend who loves to gab. It makes the miles flyyyy by.
We did 3.0 miles, walk/run style. Seems like 3.0 miles is my magical number lately! I have the same route that I like to run over and over again. I know others love to constantly mix it up but I find it familiar and comforting.
I promptly refueled by eating nearly an entire plate of baked apples. Thatâ€™s practically four apples. My entire daily need of fruit in one dish. My stomach hurts.
But not so much so I canâ€™t cook and eat these delicious dinner!
A little mustard sauce makes everything tastier. Even just plain old brown rice.
All up in the mix:
White kidney beans
In other newsâ€¦
Nicole, our husbands, and a few other friends have started a giant lottery syndicate pool. Weâ€™ve got 60 tickets invested into tonightâ€™s draw. Thatâ€™s totally insane, but 60/195,249,054 seems like better odds like 1/195,249,054â€¦ Right? Weâ€™re totally going to win.
Me too, Nicole. Me too.
