Wow I am on fire! This snow day has been very productive for me. I took some three-year pics of Grey as well. I cannot believe how much he looks like a little kid. He is getting SO big. I cannot get enough of him...
Poor guy got super sick from his shots. He was throwing up and got a fever. Ugh. Luckily he is better today so we can enjoy the snow. I was excited at his appointment though--he is in the 90th% for weight (gaining over 8 lbs this year!) and 80th% for height (growing almost 3 inches). No wonder his pants are all high-waters. We have a BIG boy on our hands.
I get bored easily with the same-old lunches. I came up with this salad that I want to eat all the time AND it is very healthy.
Chick Pea Salad
2 cans of quality chick peas, drained
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
At this point, I put some in a bowl for eating and the rest in a tupperware for leftovers in the fridge.
When you are ready to serve add a chopped tomato and a handful of feta. Then I drizzle with a good olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper.
You can really adjust this to your tastes in all sorts of ways. Play around with the veggies or try a different kind of dressing. I have been wanting to try a lemon vinaigrette and parmesan cheese. Have fun & enjoy!
This past Sunday was a great day! Elise turned three months and I ran in the Denver Marathon for the third year in a row. Although this year I was only up for the relay. I ran with some of my favorite ladies (we missed you Pam!) and did the 7-mile leg. Being sick with the flu the week before did not help my time. I was extra tired. But it was still really fun and a perfect fall day. Jared cheered me on twice in the last mile. I was so excited to see him and it gave me a little boost for the finish.
I had my 10-year reunion a few weeks ago. It was really sad because there were hardly any people that came... but it was really fun to see the people that did come. It brought back a lot of memories. I was really hoping for a little bit more of the nerds coming back as movie stars kind of thing. Haha!
I tend to reflect on things and look back to see my progress. It felt good to look at the person I was then and the improvements I have made in myself since then. I should hope for some improvement after that many years!
