Who has one fully functioning thumb and one thumb outta commission?
With my right thumb now in permanent thumbs up mode (unable to be bent because of the wrap job I got going on), I thought I would take this opportunity to put it to good use. Here’s what I’m thumbs up-ping these days.
Thumbs up, RED SOX!
No but actually- last night’s game was straight up sad on part of the Cardinals. Wainwright and Molina watching the pop up drop in between them was just… hilarious. Almost as good as Fielder’s belly flop in the ALCS series. Almost.
Thumbs up, fall flavors!
Pumpkin, cranberries, and sweet potato are regular foods in my every day rotation and I love it with all my heart.
Thumbs up, convenience cooking!
Because I was home this past Sunday, I couldn’t do my normal meal prep routine. When I went grocery shopping- I definitely opted for convenience. I usually enjoy chopping/prepping all my own veggies but it’s been nice this week not worrying about it. I have an appreciation for prechopped onions and minced garlic in a jar. Oh and turkey pot pie from trader joes that takes twenty minutes to cook.
Thumbs up, weather!
I got so used to having to run in the morning because it was the only time it wasn’t too hot for me to run. But now- I have to run after work because it’s the only time it’s warm enough to run! I love cold weather (fall & winter are my faves) so this week has been awesome for me. It’s still bright & sunny but it’s not outrageously hot!
You can’t deny how wonderful it is to experience that warm and cozy feeling indoors when you know it’s cold out. Yes the days are shorter, but the moments I have in my apartment feel that much more special and nice because it’s comforting and cozy. Warm dinners after a long day traversing in the cold just feel great. That pot pie I mentioned above? SO CLUTCH last night. And it will be just as awesome tonight post 7-mile run in the chilly weather.
I know come February I’ll be ready to ditch the layers and scarves and tights- but for now, it’s a welcome change of pace from being warm/hot/sweaty.
I can’t wait to experience the weather on non-working days and relax with Will. This is couples weather (hand holding, arms around each other, etc.) and I want my partner back from work travels, thank you very much.
Thumbs up, weekend!
Speaking of the weekend- mine starts after work today! WAHOO. And after today I only have one more week left here at my full-time job ahhhhh!
I have a lot of fun plans for the weekend that include birthday happy hours, a concert, and a reunion brunch. But I think what I’m most excited about is 1) cuddling watching baseball with Will and 2) bundling up to go on some walks with Will outside. I need some chillax time with him. We love walking to get coffee together in the early hours of weekend mornings.
Keep it wicked healthy xoxo
AND GO SOX! LET’S ROCK GAME TWO TONIGHT.
