Sunday Funday

Hey y'all! How is everyone enjoying their weekend? Mine is amazing so far. I haven't really done anything special, but being back in the States is so wonderful, I think I would enjoy anything! 

First off, I know every one of blog friends have been praying for warm weather, but when I walk outside to 40 degrees, it's like heaven. It feels like God turned the air conditioning on, and it's perfect. I'm sure I'll get sick of it soon (I am a Florida girl, after all!) but for now, I'm loving it. I walked to the Exchange this morning (probably a mile) and was just blown away by the beauty here. I mean, things are green! It's so wonderful. I spent a good chunk of the morning sitting in Starbucks finishing up 'Water For Elephants' recommended by both Jen from Peas and Crayons and Lisa from Thrive Style. It was flippin' fantastic! I loved it so much, and I'm super excited to see the movie! 

I rented some movies from Redbox (Morning Glory, You Again, and Salt). I watched Morning Glory and You Again this morning, but haven't started Salt yet. Both films were ok in my opinion, but not great. I do love Kristen Bell, though. I think she's gorgeous and very talented. I'm super excited for Salt. 

I ran outside today! It was crisp and cool, but the sun was shining, and it was calling my name. Plus, what better way to explore a little bit? I ended up only running two miles (on the golf course!) but it was hilly (totally new for me!) and I ran the fastest I have ever run in my life! I had no clue I was even going that fast! I had to stop after two miles, because even though the cold felt wonderful, my lungs were burning like fire. They just aren't used to cool, crisp, clean air. Haha. I got a few pictures (on my new baby, the DROID.) but I'm still learning to take pictures on the run! Hopefully I get better!

Then I went home and made a smoothie (oh yeah. I went out and bought a blender on my first day back in America. NBD.) 

Ingredients were:
+Raspberry Chobani yogurt
+Lean Body berry protein

(I tried to upload a photo, but it won't let me for some reason.... Sorry!)

It was delicious!! I'm loving being able to make smoothies, now! Tomorrow I plan on trying my first 'Green Monster', so wish me luck!! :) I also ate a HUGE salad, and some Subway. I love Subway soooo much, and it was the thing I craved the most while in Africa. I've already had it twice since being home! :) 

Well, I guess that's it for today. I work tomorrow, and hopefully leave for Florida on Tuesday! I can't wait to see everyone! And get my beautiful, baby, truck back! :) Have a great day y'all! 

P.S. I got the photos from my award ceremony, and I also will do a full review of the 'Water For Elephants' book soon. :) So look forward to those!
