Hey, is it really Wednesday already?! It seems like the Easter bunny was just here!
We had a really low key holiday this year, which is kinda nice. We spent Saturday at my Grandma’s farm, where Reagan had a blast running around all day. So much so that she missed nap and acted like a like a crab all evening until bedtime. Reiterating for us that naptime is still completely necessary at 2 1/2! Sunday the Easter bunny managed to find us at my Mom’s house, so it was a great success
I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but I haven’t even touched all our leftover Easter candy. I’ve got a whole bag full of egg shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for heavens sake and I haven’t even opened them! Very unlike me, but I’m sure I’ll get over it and they’ll be gone before I even realize it’s happening. This morning all I really wanted was yogurt. But nobody ever said yogurt couldn’t have chocolate chips in it.
I saw this on Pinterest recently and decided I had to try it. I think it was described as Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough yogurt. I really don’t think it tasted anything like cookie dough but it was completely delicious. I didn’t really follow the recipe. I just threw all the listed ingredients together without measuring and the result was magic. Basic ingredients included:
- 6 oz plain greek yogurt
- vanilla extract
- peanut butter
- mini chocolate chips
Even with the chocolate and the honey it was still very light and only mildly sweet. Of course that could be changed by adding more honey, but I loved it not being too sweet. Especially since it was for breakfast.
About an hour later I had part 2 of breakfast, which was an frozen blueberry waffle and coffee.
It’s been rainy and gloomy all day today so for my workout I headed downstairs to get a treadmill workout in. I blame the weather, but I wasn’t overly motivated today. I run 3 miles and then walked at an incline until I hit the 40 minute mark. Ended up being just over 3 3/4 miles. I’ve been a little spoiled by the nice weather lately. It was a little hard to be back on the treadmill again. Catching a little HGTV on the iPad helped a little
Lunch was pretty quick and easy but was exactly what I was craving. 2 whole wheat tortillas stuffed with deli turkey, sliced sharp cheddar cheese, some leftover corn and black beans. I dipped it in barbeque sauce and Dijon mustard. Probably kind of weird, but I’ve been obsessed with mustard lately and the barbeque sauce just added a nice punch of color, not to mention flavor.
Today’s weather was a real bummer after the gorgeous day we had yesterday. Mid-60s, sun and a clear sky! We took advantage by having a little picnic outside and then playing on the playground. I picked Reagan up from daycare and then we picked up sandwiches from Subway before heading to the driving range near our house. Not because we had any interest in working on our golf game, but because it is actually a pretty decent picnic spot. A couple of nice big trees provided some nice shade from the sun.
The trees also provided a nice barrier between us and the playground which was key to getting her to actually eat some dinner. Subway fail, they were out of apple slices. That’s the one bit of nutrition I can always count on getting in her. It was a little chilly in the shade so I kept things moving with the eating so we could get to the playing. The playground is a totally different ballgame this year compared to last. The timid little girl who avoided the slides and just wanted to swing for hours is climbing on everything this year. I supposed that means more work for mom and dad in keeping an eye on her, but she definitely had a blast.
Ahhhh…..more days like this are definitely ahead! Just a couple more weeks until we move and I can’t wait to get acquainted with our new area. We aren’t sure how far the nearest playground is from our new house, but we know there is definitely room under the deck for a swing. Daddy already has his first project planned . Fingers crossed the sun will come out tomorrow!
