Four day weekends need to start happening every weekend. Three day school/work weeks? I can roll with that.
Mondays are pretty marvelous when they don’t involve any responsibilities. Can this happen more often?
Marvelous is… lots of good coffee.
Caribou and Larry’s Beans. Basically the epitome of coffee glory.
I’m going to get design nerdy for a second and confess my love for Caribou Coffee’s new branding and marketing. The design is 100x better than their previous design and such a neat concept. I’m also loving the new logo and the fact they hid a coffee bean in the moose.
Marvelous is… browsing Barnes & Noble on rainy days, and snagging some fun reads.
So excited to get my anatomy learning on! I don’t care how nerdy that sounds.
Marvelous is… spending the afternoon browsing Whole Foods and REI. They finally built an REI in my town earlier this year and I just now got the chance to go. I spent a good 20 minutes lusting over beautiful new workout clothes I can’t afford. One day…
Marvelous is… optimistic purchases.
Despite this tendonitis, I’m still hopeful a spring half marathon is going to happen (fingers crossed!). I haven’t experimented with mid-run fueling and the honey stingers were on sale so I picked up a pack along with Clif Shot gel. Let’s hope I get to use them!
Marvelous is… Best Body Bootcamp. Today was the first day and the workout was awesome. A full body strength workout that made my muscles cry a little. Love it. And I’m already learning lots of new exercises that I’m excited to incorporate into my routine even when bootcamp is over.
Marvelous is… progress on my research paper. 2/10 pages done! Too bad it’s due Wednesday. Ah procrastination, we meet again.
Marvelous is… sushi. Enough said.
Bonus of being a vegetarian? I’m not sketched out by cheap sushi. $3.50 for that sucker.
Marvelous is… Mediterranean food! Dropping my brother off at college means another lunch at the Mediterranean Deli, and I am not complaining one bit. So. Dang. Good.
Clockwise starting under the pita: Eggplant and squash stew (so good), sauteed eggplant and grilled veggies.
I’m sure there are plenty of other really delicious restaurants in Chapel Hill that we are missing out on, but I don’t even care because the food here is that good. Plus they have gluten-free pita bread and I don’t think there is much that beats that.
Marvelous is… that kitty in the window.
Marvelous is… running! I did 2 very cautious and slow miles on the treadmill today. There’s still a little pain but my knee is feeling much better. I’m hoping to slowly work my mileage back up (with lots of rest, ice, anti-inflammatories, stretching and EMS therapy) over the next couple weeks. I’ve still got my eyes on the Tar Heel 10-miler in 3 weeks, but I’m taking things one step at a time. I’m not about to get re-injured.
Marvelous is… old lady Easter candy.
I stopped getting an Easter basket a long time ago (though I still ask for one every year because I’m just a kid in a 21 year old’s body) my brother and I pestered my mom into buying us some candy at Trader Joe’s. I think it officially means I’m old when this is the candy I pick out. And the bag is empty because I finished it in 2 days. You could say I like ginger a little bit.
Marvelous is… spring time temperatures and flowers. Please don’t go away!
Marvelous is… spending home quality time with the family. I don’t think I’ll ever stop enjoying that.
What made your Monday marvelous?
Do you like sushi? I love it but my mom isn’t a fan, she says it needs more ketchup :)
Do you still get an Easter basket? Or do you give them?
