By this evening we'll be in Puerto Vallarta hopefully laying by the pool with margaritas in hand watching the sunset. Temps during the day will be about 80 degrees and I can hardly wait. I thought I'd do a little Three Things Thursday since it's been a while since I've done one of those.
1. In an effort to use up the huge box of spinach I bought last weekend at Costco, I've had several green monster smoothies this week. Well...
Tuesday my blender went a little craaaazy on me. It was making all kinds of horrendous noises and moving across the counter if I didn't hold on to it.
Luckily, I've had this thing for about 10 years (I think my mom bought it for me in college) so I feel like I definitely got my use out of it. However, the scary burning smell and shards of metal (as shown by all the grey dust looking stuff) was a bit freaky!
P.S. How does one properly dispose of kitchen appliances that are toast?
2. Kristin of Food Fash was randomly in Eugene for work so we met up for lunch and had sandwiches the size of our faces (see below). Kristin was one of my roommates at Healthy Living Summit and recently moved from Tampa, FL to Austin, TX.
3. Wednesday morning I woke up at 4:30 am to meet the 5 am madness group for a good run before our vacation. I'm planning on spending a little time in the hotel gym, but not much.
On the drive home from the run, the sunrise was beautiful. It was a balmy 27 degrees!
What are your random three things Thursday?
It will likely be quiet on the blog front for a week or so. I'm not sure what the computer situation is at our hotel so I may pop in with a photo, but if not, I'll catch you up when we return. Sayonara!
