My pal Megan came to visit me! Megan and I have been friends since we both lived in Orlando a few years ago; itâ€™s always such a blast to see her.
She got to Charlotte around 2 PM yesterday, and we spent the night drinking mimosas and playing video games with Nicole. Oh yeah. Wild and crazy.
Megan was my first serious running buddy â€“ we used to run 2 â€“ 3 times a week together â€“ and we always make a point to go on a jog when she visits. It was terribly cold outside this morning (by Charlotte standards), but we braved the weather and did 3.0 miles. Megan actually just did two marathons (basically back-to-back â€“ crazy!) and is gearing up for a half in March.
This was the PERFECT BOWL of oatmeal. All on the stovetop:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup soy milk
Dash of vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1/2 a really ripe banana
Toppings: brown sugar, almonds, chia seeds
Baby photo bombâ€¦
After our run, our mutual friend Katy stopped by, and we spent the morning drinking coffee and playing with Henry. Good times.
Lunch was pretty standard fare. I wondering when Iâ€™m going to get sick of this meal! :-/
It was such a nice visitâ€¦ I wish Megan didnâ€™t have to go back to DC so soon!
