Lunchtime Liar

So…I didn’t eat that lunch yesterday.

Nick convinced me to take a fun lunch date with him at Our Daily Bread :) He doesn’t have to twist my arm for that place!

Since I didn’t eat this lunch yesterday, I ended up having it today after getting back from grocery shopping.

I got such great loot at the farmer’s market today!

For less than $20, I got:

  • local swiss chard
  • “ peaches
  • “ green beans
  • “ potatoes
  • “ zucchini and squash
  • “ corn
  • “ chocolate cherry tomatoes
  • “ sweet peppers
  • “ watermelon (only $1 since it had one little bad spot!)

Wahoo!!! I’m so excited about all this produce :)

And that great shopping trip happened after Nick and I went running this morning. So excited that we’re getting back to it, but today was rough. My legs felt like lead the entire time but at least we went! 3 miles is better than not going, and I know I’m going to have to work my way back up to where I was last fall. One day at a time.

This weekend has been so good already – I had an awesome time at the ladies event last night (recap soon!), talked to my mom and dad this morning, had a great lazy morning with Nick, and…I bought some Ball jars to do some fun projects this weekend. It’ll be my first time trying these on my own – I’m crossing my fingers they work out! I’ll make sure to report back.

Happy Saturday!

I’m off to work on fun stuff like laundry so I can have time to go pick blueberries tomorrow afternoon.

    Had a hard run myself this morning, after a spell of thinking I had found my groove again. Difficult to believe the last runs of what I consider to be summer are happening!
