Happy Wednesday! We’re one day closer to the weekend friends. Have a great day 🙂
Alex and I were so slow to get out of bed yesterday morning. I told him that it’s sometimes harder for me to wake up on Tuesday mornings than it is on Monday mornings for whatever reason. Luckily I got ready pretty quickly so I could try a new breakfast recipe. I won’t keep it a secret and will tell you I was inspired by Chick-fil-A. When I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday, an add popped up about their breakfast scramble burritos and bowls. It looked good so I made my own at home! I cut up a potato to kind of be like hashbrowns, cooked two breakfast sausages, and scrambled an egg. I threw it all in a bowl with Mexican cheese, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. It was good!
During lunch, I checked my email at work and received awful news. If you didn’t know I am so in love with Chip and Joanna Gaines. They broke the news that the fifth season of “Fixer Upper”, a.k.a the best show on HGTV, will be the last season of it. I truly think it was a tough decision for them because Chip seems like he could become emotional in the video. Given the success of the show and how it has really changed their life and business, I have a lot of respect for them as they walk away to focus on their family. Something tells me they will be back with a new project soon, and I mean in addition to their home line at Target.
I got home from work and headed out on my run for the day. My workout was speed work with a mile warm up and cool down. It felt really good and was just the type of hard workout I needed. 4 miles total including a mile warm up and cool down.
I got home, showered and settled on the couch to continue reading my book. If you’ve heard of the movie “Lion” that came out earlier this year then you may have heard of the book “A Long Way Home”. It’s a memoir by Saroo Brierley about his ordeal as a five year old in India. He was from a small village and fell asleep on a train while with his brother looking for food or money at a train station. The train takes him to Calcutta and he is later adopted by a family in Australia. I haven’t seen the movie but I know how it ends since my aunt ruined it for me lol. Even though it’s a memoir, it is told in a story and I haven’t found any of it boring like I find sometimes happens with nonfiction books.
For dinner, we heated up a bunch of leftovers. I threw some rice, Italian sausage and roasted potatoes in a bowl to eat. Not the best meal but it filled me up. Afterwards, I got right back to reading. Alex and I hung out and had a really chill night which was perfect. We started an episode of “Arrested Development” and turned it off about halfway through. The last season of it is not as good as the others and we might not even finish the series. Netflix just messed it up a little and it probably could’ve ended when it originally did years ago. We chatted a bit on the couch then crawled into bed.
Question of the day: What’s your favorite meal at a restaurant to recreate at home?
