Girl Night, 4 Miles, Abs, New Breakfast Recipe

Thanks you guys! I'm so glad I got to visit Alabama and spend time with little Ava. She's a beautiful baby and I just loved holding her tiny little self - even attempting to feed her (she was unsure - but A for effort I say). So Saturday I woke up sick. Like TOTALLY stopped up, eyes itching/burning, throat aching. BOO. Me and my stepdad had some breakfast then headed out to the storage unit - time to get my boxes out of my parent's hair and into my attic! We loaded the car up, then Mike headed out to the golf course and I headed to the gym to meet Lindsey. We walked 4 miles, then did abs. I was still MAJORLY sore from the paper plate lunges, like hard to sit down, hard to stand up, hard to walk. haha Oh well - I was glad I was able to get in a great workout and SO glad I got to work it out with Lindz! Afterwards we split up, showered, then got back together, headed to Tartan, visited with Erin, JT and their family, then met with Megan and Emily! We had a couple of drinks then headed to Mellow Mushroom. Me, Em and Megan split a 14' margarita pizza - YUM! I really enjoyed dinner and of course visiting with the girls was just priceless. It's awesome to be with people where you can literally say anything that crosses your mind and they just get you. I heart besties and love when a group of 4 can all get along and click and crack each other up - we laughed SO hard, so many times. I miss them SO MUCH already! Here are a few pics:

After dinner we just went to hang out at Megan's and then Lindsey's, then I was home by 11:45 and asleep by midnight - NICE! And, thankfully, I felt better as the day went on. However, today I woke up feeling even worse! Ugh! I just packed up the car, ate breakfast with Mike and then headed over to meet the girls at Megan's and say bye to everyone, including little Ava. We took a final picture -I look horrible but what are you going to do?!
After good byes it was time to hit the road. Four hours in the car by myself - EW! Thankfully I got to catch up with my mom, Austin and even stopped by my sister's to give her some books and duplos I found in the storage unit and visit! Now i'm at home in bed on a variety of meds hoping something makes me better. BIG BOO. I hate being sick. On to happier subjects, here's a new recipe I've had for breakfast the last few days.

Q: Are you a fan of potato skins? I love the standard ones, you know, bacon, cheese and sour cream. But I LOVED this mix of breakfast - it was pretty awesome!

Q: What's been your favorite breakfast lately?!

I"m not a huge fan of skins but if they're loaded enough I can be persuaded ;)

I'm back into Green Monsters lately, so energizing!

I hope you feel better soon.

I was eating egg sandwiches every single day for months but started eating oatmeal lately.

My family loves potato skins!! It looks like you had a great time!

I've been meaning to try this recipe out. It looks delish! I've been rocking a new (to me) cereal, Kashi Honey Sunshine with Greek yogurt and a banana. It's not as exciting, but quick and tasty!

Yay for a fun evening and killer lunges. Seriously, those freaking hurt. Cathe is good at that though ;-)

Looks like a fun weekend, love MM!

Love potato skins, but have never thought about trying them out for breakfast - looks good. I've been sticking to a regular breakfast sandwich with egg, turkey bacon & cheese on english muffin lately.

Hope you're feeling better!
