As I drove to CycleBar yesterday morning, I glanced at the thermometer in my car and saw that it was 63 degrees. It felt like fall as I walked into the studio and I couldn’t help but feel oh-so-excited for the changing leaves and glorious pumpkin-flavored everything that awaits me in the coming months. Not that I am wishing summer to end – these last weeks of summer are my favorite days of the season. But there is certainly a change in the air!
Another thing that has me pumped for the fall? Mitch will be turning two, another family vacation and seasonal events.
Lots of fun stuff coming up!
After spin, I grabbed coffee (as the studio is conveniently located next to Starbucks) and headed home to make breakfast. On the menu was a bowl of gluten-free oatmeal topped with cinnamon, berries and almond butter.
Does anyone else love to eat their oatmeal like cereal? Bring on the milk.
My breakfast held me over for hours and was a perfect breakfast for the cooler morning.
Lunch came together in a snap thanks to leftovers.
I made a big batch of pulled chicken in the crockpot over the weekend that was used in several dishes (tacos, pulled bbq sandwiches and salad topper). Paired with chopped romaine, peppers and onions and sprinkled with crushed blue corn chips, lunch was amazing. It was one of those meals that made the whole room smell delicious.
Phil and I were not particularly hungry, so we played outside with Mitch and gave him a bath before cooking up stirfry – all of that is to say, sorry for the dark photo. Again, another sign of the season changing.
The night wrapped with Phil and I watching old videos of Mitch. Phil constantly gets on me for all of the photos and videos I take of Mitch, but we spent over 45 minutes watching videos of Mitch from his first days to his first steps to today. We went to bed with full hearts.
Is the season changing where you live? Do you take pictures and videos of everything like me?
