Well, it's almost Friday! Woo-hoo! This is the first 5 day week I've worked in months and it will be the last 5 day week that I work until the end of August. I know, life's rough. Haha. I know I'm lucky to have a job where I get every other Friday off. Tomorrow Stephen's 14 year old brother Tyler is coming to see us!! Stephen and I are both so excited to see him and hang out with him! He's such a cool kid. I love him. Honestly, he's one of my favorite people just because he's laid back and friendly and just an all-around awesome kid to hang out with. We're headed to the beach tomorrow evening once Tyler gets here and we'll be there until Monday. Then Tuesday and Wednesday we've got tours of the US Capitol, Washington Monument, Mount Vernon (George Washington's house), and the White House planned. I'm really excited about the White House tour!! The tickets are very hard to get but Stephen used his connections with a US Senator to score us a tour. Stephen and I neither one have gone a White House tour so it'll be something new to us as well. And then Thursday Stephen and Tyler will go to Canada and I'll have 6 days to myself (well, I'll have to work some of those days)!!
I have to give myself a huge pat on the back...this morning I stopped in at Starbucks to get a skinny vanilla latte (Stephen won a Starbucks gift card at work and since he doesn't drink coffee, he gave it to me!!). There were all these pastries and donuts sitting in the case and they looked so yummy...I really wanted to get one. But I kept reminding myself about the oatmeal I had packed to eat and it wasn't easy but I resisted the temptation of the Starbucks pastries!! Yeah!! Go me!!
Activity: Run at lunch
Breakfast: Oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, flax seed, brown sugar, and peanut butter
Snack: Mango with strawberries and blueberries, maybe a Clif Z bar?
Lunch: Leftover ham risotto with snap peas
Dinner: 1/2 pork chop, 1/2 steak, green beans (we're trying to use up all the meat in the freezer before we're gone on vacation and we've got only one pork chop left so we'll BBQ the remaining pork chop and 1 of our steaks and then split both between us)
