Taking the Day Off?

This is how my day started...

*Slept in until 10'ish
*Ate breakfast and drank my coffee
*Oh No!  Its 11:30  John is about to be home gotta act like I have done something with myself
*Swept (really fast)
*YEA! John's home and I am still in my pj's (YIKES)
*Made Lunch
*John left
*Started GT training online (still in pj's and it's now 1 'ish
*Finally took a shower and ran some errands!

Did I mention that I took the day off... your probably thinking "don't you have ALL SUMMER!" Well, I took the day off from the gym.  Beth and I got up and ran yesterday morning and then I did spin last night... Oh.My.Goodness!  My legs were about to fall OFF! I am trying extremely hard to get back into my running routine, BUTTTTTT All I wanna do is lay out All Day and read my new Nora Roberts book!

These two things go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly! :o)

So... since I am home in the summer it is sooo easy to cook and eat healthy (well sometimes) so I have asked for some summer recipes... I need more!

Today for lunch John and I had
 Mesquite Turkey Breast Sandwich with fruit
and then for dinner I made Sphaghetti

Do you grill out a lot in the summer?
-Yes and No... we get on our kicks... grilling is my favorite though!!

Hope everyone has a good Thursday!!

Texas Tech Lunar Lope 5K

Last night was the Texas Tech Lunar Lope!  John, Boss and I got there at 8:30 to pick up my t-shirt and then waited around until 10:00 for the race to start!  I have NEVER ran a race that I didn't have a bib number or anything and I wasn't 'running' an actual race.  It was just a *FUN* run!  I kind of liked it!  I ran for me! I haven't ran much lately (like in the last 4 weeks) so it was fun just to get out and run!  The race was around the Tech campus!  The moon was really neat last  night!
 The neat shirts we got!!
 Me and one of my best supporters, Boss!!
 We all wore these neat little glow stick bracelets!!
 My Best Supporters!!!
 The Moon right before we started!!

Have you ever ran a "fun" run?
-First one and I like it!

Have you ever ran a race at night?
-First time last night and it was fun, still hot, but fun!

Ok, I want some ideas of some summer dinners!
Tonight we are grilling tilapia!
What are some of your summer recipes?

I'm Back! :o)

Yes, you read that correctly!  I'm Back from my non-blogging world!!! My life is becoming more normal again... aka... not so hectic!  I Finally got married (became Mrs. Griffin) and just got back from Antigua a few days ago! 

 John at our rehearsal dinner!

 Me and three of my bridesmaids!


 Me and my Daddy!  Right before we walked down the isle he looked at me said "Seems like yesterday that I was playing tea party with you." Tears started flowing... that was my favorite thing to do was play 'tea-party' when I was little... I was all Girlie-Girl!  

 I had a blast!

 Right after the ceremony

 I had the most amazing time... I don't think I have ever seen John this happy... or myself!! :o) 
Best. Day. Ever.

 The night we arrived in Antigua!

 Our room had a complimentary bar... that should explain why I am struggling working out this week!

 The view from our hotel!! AMAZING!

 Love, Love, Love HIM

We went zip lining while we were there over the rain forest it was awesome and the view was amazing!
Best. Time. Ever.

Everything about my wedding was amazing!  I loved every second of it... I couldn't have imagined it any other way!!  A few days before I really thought it was going to look like a total disaster, but it turned out beautiful!  John and I had the best time in Antigua and would go back in a heart beat!  

So, now that I am back that means I have to start running and working out again!  WHOO HOO! 

Monday morning we woke up at 5:00 and went and ran before Danielle had to go to summer school! OHH! How I have missed these days and running with these FABULOUS GIRLS!  Although, Monday was short and sweet it still felt great to get up and run!

I am running the 5K Lunar Lope tomorrow at Texas Teach Rec Center!!
It starts at 10 PM!  I have never ran a night race so this will be interesting! 

Hope everyone is having a great summer!  
My days are back to this...
and I am perfectly OK with that!  :o)

P.S. I promise I will try to blog more often
