about time for some new shoes.

We celebrated not one but three birthdays in the office today!  There was, of course, cake!  Red velvet no less!  I was a happy camper!

I had two small slices of red velvet cake, plus a cake ball.  Whoever thought of the cake ball creation was a genius, those little things are so good!

At work this afternoon, I had decided against running tonight.  It’s just so hard to squeeze it in between work and heading out to church for Anthem.  But, when I walked in the door, I just got that feeling that I needed to run, even just a bit.

I knew it was going to be a short one, so I took advantage of it to start breaking in a new pair of shoes.  You know, since I’ve been wearing the pair I have since last April.  I have definitely outdone the mileage on the old ones!  Oops.

Check out those lily white legs!  Jealous, aren’t ya? 😉  I took it slow and easy for just over 2.0 miles (22:30; 10:43 pace).  My legs felt ridiculously tight!  I really wanted to do another mile or two, but I also wanted a quality dinner.  The peanut butter and jelly as I run out the door just wasn’t going to cut it tonight!

I had a yummy creation!  I just started throwing things together and it was a success!  I cooked up some quinoa, then added in avocado and red pepper, all seasoned with salt and pepper.

Tonight was senior night at Anthem.  I can’t believe next year is our end of the year picnic!  Tonight, every senior had the chance to say a few things and it was really fun to hear them reflect on their years with the youth group.  It definitely reinforced to me that I want to stay with my girls until they have their senior night in a few years.

Like any proper celebration, there was cake.  Even though I had some this afternoon, I had more tonight.  It will surely make for a good weigh in tomorrow.  It’s just a number, right?
