Florida miles + pool time + teaching them to text

Jake and I slept in Monday morning, but headed out for two quick miles before breakfast. This was my first time running after PIO shots…it hurts. A lot. Thankfully, things kind of started to loosen up after a mile, but I could feel knots in the muscle the whole run.

My Grandpa made a delicious French toast casserole for breakfast. It was so good!

My Grandma and I headed to the pool Monday afternoon while the guys golfed. I took a nap and started a new book. It was a successful pool day.

I introduced my Grandma to White Claws. She loved them. We had a scoop of tuna salad on lettuce for lunch.

My Grandpa had shoulder surgery and is just now getting back into playing golf. He and Jake played 18 holes and his shoulder didn’t bother him too much!

I had a meeting in the late afternoon, so I got ready for that after that pool. Super thankful for a job I can do from anywhere!

We picked up four pounds of shrimp for dinner. It was amazing. One of my favorite parts of coming to Florida is all the fresh seafood. We ate this entire platter…

After dinner, my Grandma requested I help her learn to text. We practiced for awhile and she got the hang of it! I was so proud. My Grandpa didn’t want to be left out, so he sent me a text with the time. These two crack me up!

Jake and I went out for 6 miles this morning. I had to stop and walk twice, but other than that, I felt okay. These shots are no joke…Jake gave me my shot Monday morning and he did a great job. I couldn’t even feel it! The shot itself isn’t too bad (thank goodness), but the meds burn going in and the knots that form after are not fun.

Breakfast before the beach!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Quick ‘ritos + our doors are up! + next time you hear from me…

I threw together some quick breakfast burritos after my run Thursday morning. These have breakfast sausage, eggs, mushroom, and cheese. I cooked everything together, heated up tortillas, loaded them up with this goodness, and wrapped them up burrito style. I wrap the ones that we will eat later this week in paper towels. That keeps them from sticking to each other and we are able to easily grab them and heat them up.

Exploring Fellows Lake Trail + I love massages + a little date night!

Wednesday morning started the best way – exploring new trail. We loaded up this furry monster and headed to check out the new trails at Fellows Lake. WOW. They are AMAZING. If you haven’t had a chance to get out there and see Phase 1, do it. They’re flowy and the views are incredible. Rhea gives it two paws up.

Salad/burrito + work in bed day + another shower update!

My latest creation – the salad burrito. You make a burrito, then pile it high with a salad. You enjoy the salad first, then wrap your burrito. I think this is one of my best ideas. ; ) This one has a tortilla, ground turkey, sweet corn, black beans, cheese, lettuce, jalps, salsa, and cherry tomatoes.

I didn’t feel great yesterday, so I spent most of the day in bed after I went to the gym. I managed to get quite a bit of work accomplished in-between napping, so that was nice. Lulu stuck by my side the entire time.
