A Date Night and Cinna Bun Pancakes

Yesterday, I went to half of a body combat class and taught a killer Body Pump class.

After my workout I headed to the what a women wants expo with my SIL and my sisters! I didn’t get a group photo but we spent two hours walking around and checking out a bunch of cute, leggings, jewelry, and homemade products.

I scored some cute necklaces for a great deal and a bracelet I have been lusting after online for awhile. I have been loving the chunky necklace look, I have always been a simple jewlery person, if any. I finally realize if I’m going to get out of spandex sometime, I should probably attempt to show a little classWinking smile

My hand made a weird shadow in the picture… I love all the blue!

On the way home my SIL and I stopped at Lulu and I snagged these run day crops in all black. I love the high waistband and all my running crops require the zipper in the back! I keep my candy there..Winking smile

They even have zippers on the side down by your ankle that have a little ruffle on them which add a little somethin but have no purpose at all. Ha!

I also got the fluff off coat in black

When I got home from shopping Brent took me out for a date! We don’t get these very often so we enjoy it when we can! A friend in my neighborhood watched the twins for us while we went out to dinner!

We were going to go to Tucanos but when we arrived we were told it was a two hour wait! No thanks, we opted out and headed to California Pizza Kitchen!

We were served some sourdough bread for a little appetizer.

Then I ordered the Roasted Veggie Salad with Grilled Chicken! I loved this salad and would recommend it to anyone! I only got a half and it was just enough! I was starving too from shopping all day!

While we were eating, Tara ended up there at the same time!

It was a great dinner with my favorite guy. We shopped around the mall for a little bit before heading home and ending the night by watching Zoolander. We both LOVE that movie and laugh every time at “blue steel.”

This morning I felt like making some protein pancakes!

After breakfast I headed to the gym (I know.. Sunday is usually my rest day but I needed it..)

I listened to a few old General Conference talks and did an EASY 5 miles nice and easy. It was actually pretty relaxing to just fall into a comfortable pace and listen. Lately, I have been listening to a talk each day, but usually get distracted at home. I loved it!! I used to listen to books while training for my long runs and forgot how much I liked that!

After my run I made some chocolate protein oatmeal. All it is, is oats and one scoop of protein. Simple and easy and the perfect carb/protein ratio for recovery.

Looks like crap. I love it.

We walked to church today.. It was a little cold..

But I got to wear one of my new necklaces and even curled my hair.

Sometimes I get ready..

Wow, this post was long.. if you stuck around I applaud you.

Before I sign off for the night can we talk about one thing?
