Busy Morning!

Phew!  It’s only a little after 11 and I feel like I’ve had a whole day behind me!

We’ll get to the fun stuff a little later. . . business first 🙂

CRASHED after I finished my evening post last night.  Zach said one second we were laying watching TV on the couch, then the next second he looked back and I was dead to the world.  I guess I needed some rest!


I crawled out of bed this morning and did a nice and easy recovery run on the treadmill.

Workout For the Day

  • 4.20 miles
  • 5 minutes @ 6.1
  • 5 minutes @ 6.2
  • Steady run at 6.3, with one minute at 8 every 5 minutes until 4 miles
  • Include walk it out @ 8% @ 3.7 until 40 minutes.

This morning was one of those that I was very thankful I had you all around to hold me accountable and get out of bed.  I knew I had a busy morning ahead and was going to want to relax by the time I got off from work late tonight.

When I got upstairs from my run there were a few surprises for us from Zach’s amazing work group

How beautiful and thoughtful is that?

Zach is a project manager, and this little flow chart was a mock to his projects, but focused on marriage lessons.

I laughed for a good 5 minutes going through these.  My favorite one

No matter how many times you unload and reload the dishwasher, your spouse will still think their way is the right way.

It’s like the team KNOWS that is our thing.  Zach seriously HATES the way I load the dishwasher (I’m a little careless) and I constantly hear him in the mornings moving things around before he thinks I’m awake.  Hysterical 🙂

Along with those gifts they sent us a VERY generous Macy’s gift card that is already burning a hole in our pockets!

After the fun of the workout and present opening, Zach and I had big plans for the morning :).

But first . . . Zach wanted to me to share with him the joy of our new juicer for the first time.

2 huge carrots, baby carrots, a pear, apple, left over salad, 2 beats. . .

Look at it go!

It was surprisingly good!  VERY fresh and flavorful.  The flavors of the carrot and beats were the most prominent.

And just like that, we were fueled and ready for our morning at the COURT HOUSE! 🙂

Marriage license update to come next 🙂

  1. Zach juices a lot, I usually share with him, but we have very different tastes 😉 Hes big on putting a chunk of ginger root in (antiinflammatory benefits) and we usually use a handful of spinach for the protein.
