Phew, what a morning!
I woke up at my usual 6am with all intentions to hit the gym for an early morning workout session. As I leashed up Sophia to take her out (I’ve been allowing Boo to be off of his leash since he’s very good..or so I thought!), Boo ran past us and just took off into the woods behind my apartment complex!
I walked around outside with Sophia frantically calmly calling for Boo.
My neighbors must really adore me 😉
About 20 minutes later he comes running over like the crazy dog he is without a care in the world. He looked as though he had a nice lil’ adventure in the woods. But, I was not a happy camper! I missed my workout trying to find him and even shed a few tears thinking, “what if I can’t find him?”
Instead of going to the gym, I decided to take Sophia for a 2 mile walk/jog. I had Boo stay home since he was in trouble. Sophia and I actually had a very nice walk/jog! She’s pretty quick for a dog with short legs! And let me tell you, it’s so nice to walk just one dog, it was actually relaxing. Usually it takes all of my energy and attention with both of em’!
After our walk, I fed the two little monsters and decided to clean my apartment. My boyfriend, Andy, is coming into town tonight so I wanted to spruce the place up a bit! I vaccumed, swiffered, cleaned the bathrooms and dusted. I count that as part of my workout today 🙂
This morning’s breakfast was another repeat of this week: Cereal! I love a big ol’ bowl of cereal sometimes!
- Kashi Heart to Heart
- Fresh Strawberries

Last Night’s Dinner
For dinner last night I made yet another recipe from Kelly’s blog! This girl can cook! 🙂 I may end up making all of her recipes haha! I made her chicken pot pie recipe and WOW, it’s so simple yet so delicious! I loved it! It was my first time ever making a pot pie and it turned out really well. I have lots of leftovers and I’m already thinking about having some for lunch! I definitely recommend this! I again left my camera at work, so i’ll be sure to snap a picture at lunch time.
Kelly’s Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:
- 2 pounds chicken, cooked and chopped
- 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 (10.75 oz) 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
- 1/4 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 2 ready to bake pie crusts (I used the low-fat Pillsbury Pet-Ritz Pie Crusts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and pour into pie shell. Cover with second pie shell and seal the edges closed. Cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
Bake 30-45 minutes until golden brown
**What are your weekend plans?**
I’ll be hanging out with Andy all weekend! I’m so excited!
