Hey guys! How’s it hangin’? I really don’t know if the weather here could be any more perfect! I think the only thing that would make it better is if I could actually spend some time outside in it 🙂
Let’s talk about this for a moment: I love tamales. As in tamales and I are most definitely an item. As in we are exclusive. Thing is, Nate is not so much a tamale fan…apparently they’ve had quite the tumultuous relationship and are broken up. This puts a strain on mine and Nate’s relationship seeing as how tamales and I are still going strong. All that to say that, because of my dear husband, I haven’t had a tamale in about 2+ years. My dear friends, that changed today! Behold, the green chile cheese tamale!
One of the sweet ladies in our office got these at Whole Foods today, not realizing that they were mighty spicy, so she gave me her last one. Heaven! I love tamales (in case you didn’t catch that beforehand) and used to eat them all the time, especially cold out of the fridge. Don’t you dare judge me 🙂
That was my mid-morning snack, and lunch was quite the healthy happening as well. A low & slow sweet potato and a cup of Ramen!
[Side note: I know some of you are cringing right now, but I’m just going to throw this out there: I LOVE RAMEN. I haven’t had any in at least a year, so I figured this one day wouldn’t hurt anything!]
This afternoon I walked slowly to the park and did core work for about 20 minutes in the grass and then walked back. The sunshine was glorious and just made me wish it were summer already! Plus the creek is rising, which means that a lot of the snow is melting in the mountains. Nate and I have big plans this summer to climb a 14-er (which is a 14,000 foot mountain), go camping, hike a couple times a week, and ride our bikes everywhere. Can’t wait! It also reminded me of our fabulous trip to Tortola last year, which was incredible! Wish we were going back again this year too 😉
What’s the best vacation you’ve ever had? Or, if you’re like me and can’t pick just one, what are a couple of your favorites? Obviously I loved Tortola (you know, seeing as how I just called it fabulous and all!) My family and I used to drive out to California every year to visit my family in the Bay Area. I looked forward to that 24-hour drive every time! We also took an amazing trip to Puebla, Mexico, which was such a fun adventure!
