First Mow

I love the feeling of the first mow of the year.  The smell of fresh cut grass leaves me with hope for the next few months to come.

Plus, watching a sexy uniform guy at work always puts me in a good mood.  Hehehe.

Last night our new neighbors came over for dinner.  Courtney brought a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of Malbec -a girl who knows her way to my heart.

The weather was amazing and the food was yummy.  We kept it simple with grilled chicken, veggies, and rice.

For the rice I mixed together a can of drained and rinsed black beans, a cup of frozen corn (thawed), a bunch of cilantro chopped, 1 tbs of olive oil, 2 tbs of lime juice, 6 cups of cooked rice, and salt to taste.

The girls dominated in a game of washers while Dan grilled pineapple with honey for dessert.

I guess I have to say that the boys won the second game of washers, but I am pretty sure they cheated while we were cleaning up.

Other Eats

Breakfast and lunch were very similar to yesterday.

I also roasted some butternut squash which I enjoyed with some ketchup and mustard (1).

Yesterday I ran 4 wonderful miles while reading The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes.  It is starting to get good...

Thought for the day:


Points Breakdown:
Daily Points (31) + Activity Points (8) - Eating Points (39) = 0
Weekly Points (49) - Mon (1) - Tues (0) = 48


  1. How can you read and run at the same time? This boggles my mind. I would fall off the treadmill.

    1. Bahaha....I just stay at the same pace. It isn't really any different than watching a TV show. Having my ipad really helps too, because I don't have to bother with turning actual pages.

      You should try it with your Kindle (walking first) and then slowly increase the speed. ;)

  2. Beautiful pics-- your dinner sounds delicious, especially that grilled pineapple. YUM!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! The grilled pineapple was delish - and so simple! :)
