As I write this, Kevin James is finishing up his very last homework assignments!
When he is done, it will be the FIRST TIME EVER since we’ve known each other that one of us hasn’t been working on a graduate degree. Isn’t that crazy?? I had already started mine when we met, and he has been plugging away on is MBA for the past 2 years! Who will be the first one to start another class/degree/certification? Who knows? You know I think that you can never be overdressed or overeducated!
Yesterday was our 14-month wedding anniversary. Yeah. We mini celebrate every 24th. Always looking for a reason to celebrate. I made up this little poster to hang in the garage for Kevin to see when he got home from work. It was a painstaking effort. I printed those letters out and cut them out. I’m FAR from being able to sketch out letters so it was really my only legible option. Then I washi taped those letters on with some tape we had leftover from our wedding invitations.
The moment was kind of ruined by the dogs escaping, but it’s still up. And I make Kevin comment on how cute it is every time we pull into the garage.
Thank you to Di for correctly guessing the movie quote (“you gave me a fright!”). It’s from The Parent Trap! The Lindsay Lohan version. One of the very first movies I ever remember going to!!! We’re not a really a movie/tv family. The first movie I ever saw was The Jungle Book with my aunt and uncle. The Parent Trap is the first movie I ever remember seeing with friends. In Winona!! Little did I know my future husband was living there!!!!!
I had a few old bananas hanging out on my counter so I decided to make Tina’s OMG Pancakes for breakfast.
Love the way the house smells all morning after I make pancakes.
We decided to go to the REI Starbucks today. It’s probably the second closest Starbucks to us. The closest one is more devoted to the drive-through and doesn’t have much seating. REI people are so outdoorsy. It’s a little much for me. I was wishing they had a Starbucks in Lululemon instead!! Much more practical.
I tried to keep myself out of the house this afternoon so I wouldn’t bug Kevin. I ran the dogs (Pippa-3, Boyd .36) and hit up the gym for a WOD.
Do you get that? The EMOM burpee is going on at the same time as 40-30-20-10 reps! So the faster you go — the less burpees you have to do! That’s some powerful motivation. I finished in 18:34. I loved that workout! It was so much less tempting to take breaks knowing that it would just cause me work so I was pushing myself!! Super fun!!! Now that Kevin is done with the MBA, maybe I can coerce him into doing some more WODs with me!
Saturday is our day to eat up random odds & ends. So after the gym I had a very late lunch of a sandwich and homemade sweet potato wedges. I used up my supply of Alexia fries for the week!! Lol.
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
What’s the first movie you remember seeing in theaters? Jungle Book.
Do you prefer going to Starbucks or a more local coffee shop? I do really love Starbucks. Plus the last time I went to a different coffee shop, I got so flustered about not remembering how to order a “medium” rather than a “grande.” Haha.
