Hey all! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fantastic and as the title suggests, I was a chore completion machine. Laundry was tackled, floors were cleaned, future lunches/breakfasts were made, posts were written and homework was accomplished. I even had time to surprise my roomie with a breakfast I knew she’d be a big fan of.
She LOVES Shipley’s donuts and kolaches but I wanted to take her to an actual kolache place to try the ones I’m used to. I was able to score a Groupon that got us breakfast for two for only $7 at the Kolache Stop and so we stopped by Saturday morning. BTW if you don’t know what a kolache is (you need to try one then!) it’s a sweet roll stuffed with sweet or savory fillings. Cream cheese is my absolute favorite but they were out! Bummer Instead, she had two cheese and sausage rolls and I had two bacon and cheese rolls. Since they were out of the cream cheese, the shop gave us a sticky pecan roll to split.
She was stoked! (and she may kill me for posting this pic)
I was too
Oh my goodness it was all so delicious but no it was definitely NOT gluten free. It doesn’t matter though. Some experiences are just worth a stomach ache. On a side note, I gamble with gluten now and then. I’ve found that if I only have some every once and a while, the symptoms are there but not THAT bad. It’s encouraging but confusing too because I’d like to know what I can and can’t eat. Ah well, back to the weekend! After breakfast, we headed to Ross and Marshall’s for a little shopping. I didn’t get much for myself but I did fall in love with some furniture.
I want these chairs so much!

Sunday Long(ish) Run
I thought the first long run with the RG was on Sunday but apparently it’s next Sunday. So, I just hopped onto the apartment treadmill and did 30 mins at a level 2 incline at 5 mph. I took it slow and easy and you know what? I didn’t have to stop to walk once AND my leg didn’t tweak at me at all. This was definitely the best run I’ve had in way too long and I was so pumped afterwards. Power song of the day goes to Florence and the Machines with Shake it Off. All followed by a delicious Green Cake Batter smoothie. No recipe because the cake batter flavor wasn’t super pronounced but it WAS delicious none the less.
How was your weekend? Were you a couch surfer or super productive? Either are more than ok with me
Have a great day!!!
