July Scorch!

July 4th was a nice and relaxing patriotic day! We started off our day by heading to breakfast at the Santa Fe  Baking Company. G got the grande burrito and I chowed down on the green chile bagel with tomato and lox – they both were delicious.      











After breakfast we headed to WalMart so I could make a return and pick up so random groceries. We decided to pick up some veggies and steak for a July 4th all – American meal.

We also bought some fun baking supplies……can you guess what fun dessert we ended up making? 


















Any ideas? If you guessed patriotic cupcakes …you were RIGHT! We enjoyed spending the afternoon decorating cupcakes and eating the supplies 🙂











After a short post-lunch nap Garrett and I decided to play a round of disc golf near our house. I’ve only played disc golf a few times but, Garrett is a pro. He was a great teacher as we tackled the 18 holes that were situated in an arroyo near our house. We didn’t keep score but, I’m sure Garrett beat me. It was a nice afternoon sport to play together on our day off. 











When we got home from disc golf we started preparing dinner. As I prepared the main meal of steak, potatoes, corn and salad Garrett made fruit smoothies. 




What a strange way to blend! Not sure why he is posing like this! Despite the funky pose the smoothies were delicious. 






Mmm…what a tasty Holiday meal. 









As we ate dinner we enjoyed the Concert and Fireworks Display in D.C. It was a nice reminder of home and the Fireworks Display was awesome. 




As the show wrapped up it got darker in Santa Fe and we headed outside to watch our own fireworks. The display lasted about 20 minutes and we could see them from our apartment complex. We saw some great fireworks!!! It was a great end to a GREAT holiDAY! 




Happy Belated July Fourth! 


The sky’s the limit this month…

A new beginning starts today. A new chapter in my life of focusing on goals and looking to the  future. For the next 5 weeks I will be embarking on a new journey which I’m nervous about but, also thrilled to be pursuing. This will be so good for me. (Sorry for the vagueness)

After a three mile run this morning I had a breakfast of champions which consisted of strawberries, blueberries and granola. I also had some neuro bliss to calm my nerves. 









This next month is going to be difficult but, I know I’m up for the challenge. I think the fortune I received a few nights ago is a great mantra to keep in mind ….










Happy Saturday!

Happy 4th!
