Actually, this post will be very random and rambling because I don't have any one thing from today that stood out enough to merit its own post. Actually, that is not true--I woke up in the middle of the night and had a GREAT idea for a post. I even thought it was incredibly witty and would make all my readers laugh. Then I really did wake up and didn't have a clue what that witty post was. Bummer.
After a busy night yesterday, I did not leave my house today until 8:30 at night. What did I do yesterday you ask? Well, I did something I normally would never do--I ran through the streets of ATL at night (gasp! not only did I just reveal where I live, I also revealed something that my parents would not approve of).
What, you ask, finally encouraged me to go outside this evening? I wanted oatmeal-raisin cookies "somethin' fierce". So I googled "something fierce" + "oatmeal cookies" and found this amazing post that was calling my name (picture from Smitten Kitchen)
It was for a really neat cause--taking back the streets of Atlanta by making running "safe". The Atlanta Track Club Competitive Team (of which I am a member) wanted to show the Tuesday Night Run Club our support for their mission. We had roughly 40 runners come out and run through the ATL, hitting most of the major highlights of the city. All told, I ran nearly 11 miles last night which wiped me out today.
The dough is currently chilling in the freezer so I'll let you know how they turn out. I did substitute prune butter for the real butter and egg whites for the eggs so we'll see...
In C's little world, it was a headband-less and bow-less day. That means she looked kind of like a boy today, don't you think? Especially in her bright, primary colored shirts. Check it out--blue, yellow, and red without even trying! Ahh, the simple discoveries in life.
