Leaves and Ladybugs

September 15, 2010

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday!

This morning, I did work and wrote until about 11:45, and then I headed out for a run—I was pumped, because I had a brand new playlist on my i-pod, and the weather today is awesome—warm, sunny, and not a hint of humidity.

I love running with new music…four and a half miles passed like nothing, and before I knew it, the run was over!

When I got home, I was starving, and I knew exactly what I wanted…a BIG green monster.  I haven’t had one for a while, and as I was running, the craving for one just hit.  I made a classic green monster the moment I stepped back into the house:

3 BIG handfuls of spinach, almond milk, protein powder, and ice.  Perfect. It was also huge—I refilled this glass three times!

Plus a Pennsylvania apple and Barney Butter on the side:

Mmmm…I want to go to there.

I love using my leaf bowls in autumn.  It’s the little things, right? 🙂

We’re going into State College again tonight because the movie Winter’s Bone is playing at their independent movie theater.  Have you heard of this film?  It won the 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, and has gotten stellar reviews all around.  It looks like a dark one though—I have a feeling it’s going to be intense!

Hope you have a great afternoon and evening…our dinner plans are still up in the air, but I’ll be posting sooner or later!

    Cute bowl! I recently bought a leaf bowl too (trying to break away from my boring dishes) and it just makes me happy to eat from it.

    I love that glass! And the bowl. You can tell I like the little things too. 🙂

    I’ve never heard of it but sounds like it should be good!

    I used to have similar glasses from Bloomingdales but my husband managed to break every single one. I miss them!

    Love making new workout playlists – when I’m in need of a good dose of exercise inspiration, new music on my ipod is the way to go! 🙂

    That leaf bowl is just adorable 😀
    I am probably the only blogger that DOESNT have a wide array of cute, fancy, colorful, or unusual dishes.

    I gotta get on that!

    Those are the best kind of runs!! I miss running in the fall so much!! I’ll be so ready to get back into after baby!!

    I wish I craved a green smoothie. I used to!! But since being pregnant it never even crosses my mind. Too bad since they’re so super healthy!!!! 🙂

    Sounds like the perfect temperature for a run. And having new music definitely helps too!
    I love fall. Everything about it I love. And yes, it’s the little things that make me happy too, like my fall wreath that I was so excited to put up! It makes me smile every time I look at it 🙂

    yeah I also want to know what’s on the playlist! 😉

    I love a new playlist! Even a new podcast!
