How about a numbers post? All of the cool kids are doing it sooo, so am I… but with my own twist, hashtags. #poser
1: the number of Chop’t salads I’ve eaten. This afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting these lovely ladies for a blunch [blend + lunch] date. I didn’t take any pictures of my tasty greens but they were thoroughly enjoyed. Also, the Chop’t chefs[?] are serious craftsmen with their blades, definitely one-upping the infamous Slap Chop. #blendswhoblunch
3: the number of grocery stores that we shop at. TJ’s is my true love but there are still some things that we can’t find there such as Silk. And don’t even get me started on my love for Whole Foods, it’s full of tasty goodies but it also lives up to it’s nickname Whole Paycheck. #burningthegastogetthegoods
4: the number of avocados I’ve eaten this week. Diced or sliced, mashed or mushed, served up for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, I could eat them all day and everyday. Avocado for dessert? I’ve seen a few chocolate avocado pudding recipes but have yet to try one. #anytimeisagoodtimeforavo
5: the number of pancakes I ate for breakfast. I’ve been loving Peanut Butter Oatcakes. Slathered with a dollop of both apple butter and chunky peanut butter, plus a drizzle of peanut butter frosting, it’s a sweet way to start the day. #poweredbypancakes
6: the number of loads of laundry we did today. We have a bad habit of letting the hamper fill to the brim before we do a load. During the week I’ve got other things on my mind than laundry. As long as I have a clean pair of panties, socks, something to wear to work, and workout clothes, I’m all set. #spinoutthestinky
7: the number of days until Ryan and I fly down to FLA. We planned to fly down a day early in the off chance that our flight got delayed or even cancelled due to weather. It’s winter and the weather in totally unpredictable. Thankfully, sprinter [spring + winter] has returned and there are no forecasts of snow. #shouldbesmoothsailing
8: the number of days until Ryan and I set sail for our eastern Caribbean honeymoon cruise. This will be the first time Ryan and I have ever been on a cruise or to the Caribbean. When planning our honeymoon, we both agreed that we wanted to go somewhere where we wouldn’t have to do anything. Eat, sleep, sunbathe, repeat. #lifecanbesoeasysometimes
9: the number of miles on my training schedule to run this weekend. I was planning to run along the Potomac this afternoon post-blunch but wanted to spend some time with Ryan and swing by TJ’s for dinner fixings so it got pushed back until tomorrow. #priorities
10: the number of tricks Charlie knows: sit, lay down, stay, shake, roll over, speak, crawl, kiss, play dead, and we’re currently working on spin. And a big thank you to Alex for the Snuggie! #allbuddiesshouldhavesnuggies
P.S. I overheard on the Today Show this morning that the diet trend is going out of style and people are moving more towards self-acceptance. Alleluia and amen. That’s something that I could get behind! And in honor of Miss America tonight, I thought this article summing up Body Image in the Fashion World was pretty fabulous…
Question: What’s your hashtag of the day?
Question: Do you own a Slap Chop or a Snuggie?
