Happy Fri-yay! I’m so excited for this weekend because it’s finally going to be fall like weather here in Princeton, New Jersey. I hope work goes by quickly for you all. Have a great day 🙂
Waking up wasn’t bad at all which was surprising after my day off. Once I was ready for work I made myself breakfast. I recreated my breakfast from Tuesday minus the sausage. One of my errands from yesterday was picking up more Frank’s hot sauce so the taste was fresher since it wasn’t the last few drops off the bottle. It’s the little things, like new hot sauce, that make my day. Also I’m not sure why my glass of milk looks yellow haha.
During lunch, I finished my book. I’m not usually a memoir person since I find they can be uninteresting and dry. “A Long Way Home” was not this way at all! Personally, I felt that it read as fiction during some parts although the end was a little dry but not terrible by any means. If you like nonfiction or a feel good story, I recommend this book. If you have a Goodreads account leave it down below in the comments! A few of us went on a friending spree yesterday and you should join us all.
I was so excited for my run yesterday afternoon. The temperatures are cooling down and it was high 70s when I went out with lower humidity and a breeze. It felt so good! I tried out my new running shoes and they felt good and no blisters. After one or two more runs with them I’ll make a final verdict but so far it looks like I’ll keep them. I did 4 miles and was supposed to keep them between 9:15-9:30 but the middle two were a little fast. This surprised me since I was going against the wind so I felt like I was going slow.
I showered and put my pjs on once I got home. Since it wasn’t hot and humid, Alex and I chatted on our porch for a while. Alex starts his new job in New York City on Monday so we’re soaking in the extra time we have on weeknights now since his commute will be about an hour and a half from door to door. Eventually we got hungry, so we headed in to heat up leftovers. I made myself a burrito bowl/salad with chicken, Spanish rice, black beans, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and salsa. For whatever reason, my meals this week have been mostly in bowls. I’m not complaining though. I love throwing a bunch of stuff into a bowl for an easy meal.
After dinner, we were looking for a movie to watch. We found the new “Beauty and the Beast” on Netflix and turned it on. I saw this movie when it came out in the spring in the theater and loved it just and much the second time. While I know there are a few new songs in this movie, the plot was basically the same which I loved. I think Disney did a great job with such a beloved movie. Plus Emma Watson is beautiful and great actress. Actually, I think the movie was very well cast for every character. When the movie was over, we ended to bed.
Question of the day: Did you see Beauty and the Beast? If so, what did you think? If not, tell me about the last movie you saw!
