Pumpkin Pie in a Glass & Lazy Sunday

Dessert in a Glass
Before I talk about today, I have to share wit you all the BEST dessert cocktail ever. We had picked up some Silk Nog yesterday for no real reason other than it was there. Well, after dinner, Sarah and I started talking about what you could make with vanilla rum. We came up with Pumpkin Pie Bliss. I will say that the amounts are pretty vague. I used a small blender (think Magic Bullet size) and just eyeballed the ingredients.


Pumpkin Pie Bliss
Ingredients:
Silk nog
Vanilla rum (approximately 2 shots)
Pumpkin puree (maybe 3 tbsp)
Cinnamon
Freshly grated nutmeg


Directions:
In blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.

I do believe we will be serving this at Thanksgiving in lieu of a pumpkin pie ;-)

Lazy Sunday
This morning we were pretty lazy. It was really kind of nice actually. I made oatmeal for the both of us for breakfast. We ate that and watched some Food Network. There was no rushing, no sense of urgency. It was really nice.

We finally decided to get off our rears to head to the river trails for a run. Today was much sunnier, less windy, and a bit warmer. Perfect. Sarah was going to try for 4 miles, but just wasn't feeling up to it today. She still did over 3 miles, and I'm proud of her for that. I did 5.5 trying to keep my pace a little slower since I did 10 miles yesterday. I figured it'd be in my best interest (and my legs would thank me).

We got back to the house and cleaned up and had a quick lunch. Sarah needed to get back home. She had Sunday errands to run. I thought I might make a trip to Target, but ended up making some seitan and staying home instead. It was a day of no makeup and no hair styling. Sometimes we need those days!

Jason got home around 4 pm and had to get unpacked. Since we didn't get to have Pizza Friday, we're having Pizza Sunday. We're also being lazy, sitting on the couch and catching up on DVR'ed shows. Sometimes lazy feels so good.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?
