Happy St. Patty's + Citrus Kale Salad

Top 'o the mornin' to ya.  We had a wonderful St Patty's day spending hours and hours outside together - starting with a bit of yardwork (cutting down the Karl Forester grasses for the year so the new growth can start coming up).  We had some water table fun, then went for a long walk around the lake near our house, and played at the playground for-ever... for-ev-er... (name that movie, and I'll be super impressed!!  Think early 90s).  When we got home for lunch I came up with a DELICIOUS kale salad!

2nd Run + Tangy Tilapia Avocado Wrap

Pooch Run Success + Kale Salad

AWESOME NEWS:  my plan to run with doggie last night was a SUCCESS!!!  Woot Woot!  It was a beautiful evening out, warm but not too warm, and it felt good to move.  I had been anticipating the run all day, was a bit nervous to fail... but once I got out there, it came back to me.  I once trained for and ran a 10K (in 73 min - not super fast, but I ran the whole way)... ...

Pooch to 5K + Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I'm in a weird mood:  Kind of blah, kind of numb, kind of unmotivated.  Not sure why.  Nothing came to mind to write about tonight - and worse than that, nothing sounded good for dinner.  I stared into the fridge, to no avail.  Then I stared into the pantry, to no avail.  Then the freezer... nothing.   So I just didn't eat.  That is very unusual for me.   ...

Getting to know me + Power Yogurt

It's Monday.  Not just any Monday... the Monday after daylight-savings... UGH! It was so hard to pry myself out of bed this morning!  I did it, though I was about 10 minutes late to work.   And yet, I was still the first one here. ... Read more » about Getting to know me + Power Yogurt
