Birthday Presents and Bacon

This morning started early. Like real early. 

I would just like to clarify that is indeed, 4:45 AM.

I met with a trainer at my gym on Tuesday night, and he gave me a free strength training session that absolutely kicked my butt and left every last muscle in my body sore as hell. Needless to say, he is officially on my hit list, and the minute I can manage to make it out of bed without screaming in pain, I'm going to give him a piece of my mind. Okay fine, I'm kidding. He was awesome, and I am actually crunching some numbers to see if I can use him in a during marathon training a couple months down the road. Anyways, the point of that story was that Tuesday night my lead legs would only carry me about a mile and a half, so I was determined to squeeze that missed run in this morning. 

My alarm went off at 4. I was at the gym and on the treadmill by 4:45, and done with my run by 5:30. I do not early love morning runs, but I did love the fact that I'm pretty sure my legs were still asleep and unaware that they were even moving until like the last half mile. 

Also I was so sleepy that I accidentally stole the gym towel. Oops. 
Not the first time that's happened, and probably won't be the last. 

You know it's going to be a good day, when the first thing to greet you on the Yahoo home page is an article on the 12 best grilled cheeses. Y'all. It's BACON GRILLED CHEESE! 


Um, yes. Say no more Yahoo. Bread, cheese, and bacon are officially on next week's grocery list. 

Aaannnd speaking of bacon...

Heaven will be filled with bacon and the Gos. I am sure of it.

After work I headed home to start dinner. I had leftover angel hair from last week's pad thai, so I whipped up this recipe for dressed chicken breasts with angel hair pasta. I really liked it, but Taylor wasn't a big fan. But to be honest I was a little distracted...


Tater is the best. He had to do some serious research and make approximately 80938413 phone calls to track down the purple model, but he did it and I am one happy girl. And now I can't wait to go for a run! Smiles all around.  




  1. I have the Nike GPS watch, but my MIL and SIL just bought the Garmin 10 - and they both LOVE it

    1. Aw, thanks! It's actually not until Sunday, but I'm a fan of stretching the "birthday week" out as long as possible :)
