After a whirlwind holiday weekend filled with food, family, dreydal, more food, and a massive parade…and maybe throw in a bar crawl and some NYC love, I have returned home.
Obviously, I am excited to share my stories of holiday shenanigans, but after 6 months, my fun employment has come to an end : ( Tomorrow, I am starting my new job and I had a lot to catch up on today. Some of it boring (does anyone do as much laundry as I do?) while other things more fulfilling (I did buy another new pair of shoes at Nordstrom Rack today). And got in a 4 mile run along the path this morning before ending my errands at the grocery store. The BOY is in the midst of finals and I am starting a totally new schedule, but we gave meal planning a go for this week, but kept it simple.
Meal Plan 12/02/13
Monday: Fajita Night
Tuesday: Cherry BBQ Crockpot Pulled Chicken
Thursday: Pork Tenderloin and Broccoli
The pulled chicken was super easy. Just place 1 cup of BBQ sauce (preferably awesome and from Door County) in the bottom of your crockpot. Add two chicken breasts and cook on low. When chicken is tender and starting to pull apart, shred with two forks and let heat in pot for another 30 minutes. Mmmmm!
I definitely missed the BOY while I was gone, but couldn’t believe how big (and heavy) Cooper looked when I got back last night. After he thoroughly inspected my bags, we wasted no time assuming our cuddled up position on the couch!
On a blog related note, I came home to 197 messages in my SPAM, so I obviously didn’t read through all of them. I apologize if you left me a message that got lost in Spam Land.
And one last thing to share (I promise because I have to go to bed early and if I keep sharing we could be here all night), I entered the 2014 NYC Marathon Lottery today. Fingers crossed and I’ll be running through all 5 boroughs next November.
