It has barely been getting warm enough in Seattle to pull out the kiddie pool, but when you are a Seattle kid, you take the weather when you can get it! We have been unbelievably blessed by the weather gods this spring. Who knows, maybe it's global warming? Usually spring is wet and cold, just like, uh, pretty much every other season here in the Pacific Northwest!
Last weekend after my long run I really wanted a fancy breakfast and so I had to take matters in to my own hands! This is sauteed zucchini, red pepper, onion and spinach topped with roasted sweet potatoes, topped with two fried eggs with cheese. Not shown: sprinkled the whole thing with cilantro. YUM. Truth be told, it took me about an hour to make every part of this meal, but oh, man. It was so good!
A local cupcake shop, Cupcake Royale, had a day this week where they handed out free ice cream! I picked the girls up from school and zoomed right over as a surprise to them and luckily we beat the lines. We were even luckier because the Cupcake Royale location we went to doesn't scoop ice cream cones, so instead they handed out ice cream bars instead! We all chose red velvet cake with vanilla (I think it was vanilla) ice cream. Ice cream AND cake, ftw! It was delicious but incredibly messy. My six year old was covered with red velvet cake, as was the table and floor.
The big excitement for me right now is a new haircut! I have been growing my hair out for almost four years and I never wanted to cut it off . . . until I did. So off it all went! It wasn't enough to donate, but I have chopped off my long hair several times and have donated hair before, so I'm good with that. I did want it a little bit longer, but my stylist started by cutting it to my shoulders and then it shrank as she put in all of the layers I asked for. It's a fun style. Very, very similar to how I used to wear my hair last time it was this short!
Having hair that long is fun, but it's also a pain. I wore it up about 90% of the time, and when I wore it down it always felt like it was in the way. It was never down at work, or running, or doing stuff around the house, mostly just when I wanted to look "done up" for going out. I did like having an awesome long ponytail, though, and now my hair is just barely long enough to pull back when I run! Also thinking of maybe adding some color, since I would love more change, but we shall see.
How's the weather where you live?
