Daily Life: Show us a day or a week of your life! Include pictures!

On Tuesday, I woke up early so that I could log my run before work.  I did three miles, watched most of an episode of Southern Charm, and wrapped it up with some stretching.

For breakfast, some smoked salmon on toast, and (more) coffee.

Clearly I am failing miserably at this whole Abstaining From Caffeine-thing.

After I eat breakfast, I blow dry my hair, put on make-up, get dressed and go to work. Every day.  That is my morning routine.

I only managed to snap my outfit AFTER work in the gym locker room.  It was sort of the same as yesterday’s outfit.  Except with a skirt instead of a dress.

I was at the gym because after work, I went swimming with Mom.  Hence, the early morning run instead of the post-work run.  We kick-paddle-kick-paddle-kicked for an hour or so (Mom got there an hour early, so she had been swimming for two hours!) and then it was time to head home.

True story, it snowed today and this is what the ground looked like when I was leaving the pool.

Talk about a real Minnesota spring.

I couldn’t wait to get home because my #LillyforTarget had arrived.

There were a few snafus.  One of the scarves (the one I had decided was mine) did not arrive.  When I called customer service, they informed me that because it was out of stock, the best they could do was refund me the money.  It lives in the great distribution center closet in the sky now.

When I told Mom about this tragedy, she tried to insist I take HER scarf, and I said Absoltely Not.  But such is the depth of a mother’s love. Plus it looks really cute on her. 

There were also two pieces (a top and a dress) in Nosie Posey that were honestly heinous.  I wanted to love the print, but the cut of the clothing was so awful that I had not choice but to return it.

That’s okay though because the shift dresses were a total home run.  Look.

They fit so well that it was like someone measured me and sent me dresses.  I truly cannot wait to start wearing these out and about.

For dinner, I headed back over to Mom and Dad’s.  Marcus was out of town at the beginning of the week, so when Mom offered up salmon (with a side of leftover ribs), I was not about to turn her down.

Post-dinner, I came home to do more cooking of my own.  I whipped up a peanut butter pie for our work potluck tomorrow.  Of course I didn’t think to photo it until it was wrapped in foil and in the fridge.  I also whipped up two pounds of breakfast sausage and divided it into half-pound servings for future meals and popped it back into the freezer for storage.

I’m sure you’re glad that I remembered to capture that.
