The Best Wednesday & Thursday... ever!

I'll set the scene. It's Wednesday night.

Guess what fell from the sky?

And guess who came to visit?

Anastasia is in town for a while, so us three girls had a wonderful little night together.

We met up after work and ran a nice 6 miles together on side-by-side treadmills like the good ol' days! What is it about running with one of your best friends that makes the time fly by?

Then we hit up Farm Fresh for some  wine  ingredients to make an exciting dinner.

AND Anastasia finally got to meet her little niece!

love at first pat and wiggle
After our run, we were feelin' protein. We were also feelin' breakfast. And maybe some of this.

hit me, pinot noir.
I was excited to try the griddle side of my new Cuisinart panini/griddle!

put it all together and whaddya get?

hellooo, protein greek yogurt banana pancakes!
We threw together the following, adapted from Julie's recipe for greek yogurt pancakes:

  • 12 oz. Greek yogurt (we used 6 oz. plain, 6 oz honey vanilla)
  • 15 tbsp. wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1.5 scoops Aria Vanilla Protein Powder (from Trader Joe's... so good!)
  • 1 banana, sliced
And we may or may not have eaten the entire package of turkey bacon...
judge us if you must, but it was really good. and it was turkey bacon, after all.
The end result looked and tasted fantastic.
syrup makes everything better.
It was wonderful spread of happiness.

what more could a girl need?
And then, to top off our night, it started SNOWING!

snow!! wheeeeeeee!

All that snow piled up overnight to give me a nice phone call at 5:45 a.m. Snnooooowwww daaayyy!

My little baby was a little confused trying to maneuver around the cold stuff.

"where the heck am I supposed to potty, now?"
no cage for me? play all day? say yes, mama?
Chloe was psyched to have her mama home all day. She was up at at 'em way before I was, but I still got a little extra sleep in. What a nice little snow day with my little ball of fire.

faster than a speeding bullet... it's Chlooooeeee!
"look, mama! I'm a dalmatian!"

[Coming soon: a new Nike Training workout! and man, is my booty sore today...]
