More Baking

Happy Saturday! What are your plans for the day? Alex and I have some more birthday celebrations on the agenda. Have a great day πŸ™‚

After going to New York City and being up waaaay to late Thursday night, waking up was HARD yesterday. I was not in the mood to get up when my alarm went off but work was calling my name. I made oatmeal but took it to the office since I was running late. 

Work was interesting. We had some German visitors seeing the facility so everyone was one their A game. For my afternoon snack, I had a peach Greek yogurt. Oikos triple zero is the best Greek yogurt I’ve tried. After work, I headed to the grocery store to pick up a few items before going home. 

After I got home I quickly changed and headed out for a 4 mile run. For some reason, my body just felt off. I got it done though and had some fartlek intervals thrown into the miles. 

Once I was showered it was time for more baking! I may have mentioned this before but Alex is a twin so I offered to bake the birthday cake for the family party. I’ve never made a cake from scratch before but it was so easy! The smell was amazing and the batter tasted good so it means the cake will taste good right??

While the cakes were baking, I made some brown rice. Dinner was burrito bowls and they hit the spot! In mine was the rice, southwest chicken from the crockpot, lettuce, cheese, a little sour cream and lots of salsa. 

Once dinner was cleaned up, Alex and I got settled on the couch to watch a movie. When Alex got home from work he told me he was in the mood to watch a kids movie. I obviously agreed to that! We settled on Sing! and I thought it was so cute. The music in it was really good and some parts were really funny. After the movie ended, I wrapped the cakes up and headed to bed. 

Question of the day: Do you typically workout on Fridays? I usually don’t and don’t know how I feel about it.

  1. I almost always work out on fridays! I love how empty the gym is on frriday afternoons:) I get to do anything I want to for as long as I want to! That said, I am a teacher so I’m out of work by 2:30pm on fridays… a little different than other jobs, I know;)


    1. I can totally see how the gym would be empty at 2:30 on a Friday afternoon! If it works for your schedule then do it girl! I think I’m just so worn out that I’ll stick to relaxing on Fridays instead πŸ™‚


  2. Oh I haven’t seen Sing, I’ll have to watch it.
    Your family is going to love the homemade cakes, nothing tastes as good as homemade:) What are you going to put between the layers?


    1. I love watching tv on the few occasions I run on a treadmill. I can totally see Sing making a run go by faster! The cake smelled so good while cooking and I had to restrain myself from cutting a piece of it to taste.
