Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Mine was filled with lots of domestic and grown up things.
The hubs and I sat down and went through our budget for the rest of the month, grocery shopped, did some meal planning, garage organizing, yard work, furniture rearranging…real exciting things happening over here!
Before all of our Saturday fun, I started the day with a 9-miler (my longest run outside, to date). Started with cloudy skies, my favorite running weather.
The run itself was good, right on my goal marathon pace.
Finished it off with some kitchen-floor-selfie-dying time.
Then we got our bedroom set up for our new bed delivery!
And then it came!
Painting will come next weekend, and we DEFINITELY need to figure out what we’re doing for a headboard. But we love it! So does Wilson.
We were in need of some fun times after all this adult housework-ness (go with it). So we headed out to one of our favorite places, Stout Brothers Beer Market. They have over 20 beers on tap that change all the time. And each beer is color coded so you know all the pink beers are IPA’s, green beers are Belgian, you get it. You get 5 baby beer samples in each flight.
One stop wasn’t enough. We headed to Schoolhouse and got another flight over there!
Sunday we headed over to Granny’s house and picked up a jar of homemade salsa. Drool-worthy.
And then we headed to Sam’s to stock up on some chicken for the next two weeks. Our Tupperware supply has severely diminished over the past few months – aka the hubs leaves it at work and it gets thrown away. We saw this 62-piece set for $19.99 and had to have it.
Anyone who packs their lunch every day for work knows how valuable Tupperware is. We’re fully stocked once again. And then, because we are a really cool/hip/fun couple…we bought…
A vacuum cleaner! I know, you’re jealous right? Our old one crapped out on us, so it was time. This bad boy should last us forever, and will do anything we want it to (and it should – do y’all know how expensive vacuum cleaners are?!).
We celebrated a successful weekend of adulthood with some pizza and a little golf.
Last week’s running recap 8/10 – 8/16
Monday – rest / Tuesday – 6mi / Wednesday – 3.1mi / Thursday – rest / Friday – 4mi / Saturday – 9mi / Sunday – 2mi (I felt really weird/dizzy during this run so I cut it short)
Total – 24.1mi = August goals still going strong!
Let’s rewind again to last week where I told you I was making these Lasagna Roll Ups for a new dinner recipe. And we have another crowd favorite! The hubs and I love our Italian food and these were a big hit!
I did end up adding 1lb of ground beef to ours which made them extra delicious (thoroughly enjoyed by my meat-loving hubby). I browned the ground beef first and added 1/2 the jar of spaghetti sauce to the meat and let it cool while the noodles were cooking. Then I mixed the meat/sauce filling with the ricotta/spinach filling in a big bowl so it was all combined when I added it to the lasagna noodles and rolled them up. Delicious. Highly recommend. They take a little prep time and are definitely one of the more labor-intensive meals, but well worth it.
