Random Bits

I made this for breakfast today minus the meat. I only had a small amount of almond flour left so I just made one. I also hate, hate, hate using only egg whites because I don’t like wasting the yoke. I can never convince myself to eat the extra yoke either if I’m already eating eggs. So needless to say, I used the whole egg. I knew this meant my biscuit would become a biscuit pancake, but I didn’t care. It was heaven. I have been craving both biscuits and pancakes left and right lately and since that kinda goes against the whole not-eating-grains thing, this was my solution. I will be making them again…soon. Soooo good, want to touch the…oops, never mind.

-We leave for our Vancouver/Seattle trip in less than a week. I. CAN’T. WAIT. If you have any suggestions on how to spend our time, or mine when I’m alone for part of it, please let me know.

-Friends of ours are going to purchase my drawer pulls and use them in their kitchen redo! I’m so excited to see them worked into the decor of an entire room. I know it’s going to be this glaze pattern, but I’m going to do a color consult with them. They’re having a baby soon, days or weeks soon, so it might be awhile still. I will let you know when and of course, share photos!

-I’ve starting running again. I love the way I feel when I’m finished, but I loathe running. I mean I hate it. I dread it. Any runners out there have any advice about how to enjoy it? Do tell, do tell. My goal is to be able to pick up and run 2-4 miles and stay in shape enough to do that at any time. For Seth, this is no problem, but running has always been so hard for me, even when I was in great shape. I never want to be a marathon runner, but I do want to enjoy shorter runs and interval runs. So again, help me out please!

-Today I’m editing pictures to be slowly posted to my Etsy shop. Some of the things are new, but I’m also redoing the way I post items for sale. My goal is to get things up a few a day or a few every couple days. I’m trying to save some for my trip next week since I can do the computer stuff from anywhere.

Have a great weekend!

    Katie! I’ve recently been doing the running thing, too, and ran my first (ever) 5k yesterday…I did the couch to 5k program (http://www.c25k.com/) I had the exact same goal as you. You feel so lame at first only running for like 2 minutes and then walking, but seriously, it has worked for me! I still hate hate hate running, but I like how I feel when I’m done…just make a killer good playlist that you’re psyched to listen to, and that’ll help 🙂 Good luck! Miss you guys!

      That’s the same program I’ve been using. It is really helpful. Congrats on your 5K- quite an accomplishment Megs. We miss you too. Ooo, I think I have your pink sunglasses. Want me to mail them to you? How’s life?

    Oh, wow. I *have* to make those! As for the running, I’ve been doing two things to keep away the monotony. I’ve tried to jog in an interesting environment when I can…which means the beach for me, but could be the nature trails by the intramural fields for you. It has also helped me to take my mp3 player along so I can listen to music. :)\
