Mornings on break are the best mornings.

I love my job, I do.  I mean, I REALLY love my job.  But on mornings like this, when we don't set an alarm and the girls snuggle with me in the recliner.  When we get ready if we want to and when we want to.  When I have my coffee sitting at home instead of rushing out the door.  Mornings where the recliner is full, and my heart is overflowing.

Morning like this make me wish I home-schooled my girls.  I can really see the appeal.

Since Wednesday, my running is going strong.  I feel like my training for the Callaway Gardens half marathon is right on track :)  On Wednesday, I ran 3 miles on the treadmill.  <--This was sort of my warm-up after not running for an entire week.  On Thursday, I cranked out 7 miles, again on the treadmill.  Today, I totaled 4 miles.  My plan is to run 3 on Saturday and 12 on Sunday to complete my training according the plan.  I'm also participating in Run This Year 2014, with a goal of 2,014 miles this year.  Check it out and sign yourself up!

I've also officially signed up for the Rock 'N' Roll Nashville half marathon on April 26.  Gearing up to cross that off my 30 Before 30 list.  And speaking of my 30 Before 30 list, that whole "Visit New Orleans" thing just got easier.  One of my BEST friends is moving there later this week.  (I'm super sad about her leaving, but I'm trying to see the positive!)

In other news, I went grocery shopping yesterday.  I planned out the required 3 meals that I'm to cook for the week and made my list accordingly.  Wouldn't you know that I left my list sitting on the counter?  So typical!  I somehow managed to pick up ALMOST everything we needed.  Our three meals will include Lemon-Garlic Shrimp with Baked Potato and Veggies, Potato Soup, and Taco Salad.  I'm banking on eating leftovers a few nights and possible Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sandwiches another.  (FYI:  I consider BEC sandwiches cooking, so that would be overachieving on my part!)  Shout-out to Courtney for suggesting emeals as an option for new recipes.

Are you running RNR Nashville?  Let me know--we'll meet up!

Any super easy, super delish recipes to share?
