This has been a pretty serious week here on Peanut Butter Runner. I thought it might be nice to lighten things up a bit today. So here I am with a Five Things I’m Loving post full of random awesomeness! (p.s. total credit goes to Ashley for the topic idea – she is the originator of “5 things I’m loving”)
The Avett Brothers
Well, I’m always loving The Avett Brothers but there’s something about summer that just makes me want to listen to them all the time. Joe Kwon (the cellist for the band) has a photo blog and posted this picture yesterday from their tour bus. Dogs + Avetts = perfection.
I talk about fashion pretty much…never (and I used to really care about it…oh how priorities and budgets change! ;)) but I have been living in white jeans. Pair with a colorful top and wedges and you’re good to go!
Tomatoes and Peaches
I can’t get enough tomatoes. How is it possible for homegrown summer tomatoes to taste so much different than what you buy in the grocery store? It makes me wonder why I even bother eating tomatoes when they’re not in season. They are just insanely delicious. I love them sliced with salt or in a sandwich with fresh herb mayo. Heaven.
I’ve been buying North Carolina peaches at the farmer’s market the past couple of weeks and they are so sweet and flavorful. I’ve been incorporating them into my breakfast. Overnight oats topped with peaches and stirred into hot oatmeal with blueberries and bananas.
I kind of touched on this in my last post but I’ve been taking more rest days recently and my body is responding with a big THANK YOU! I really love to be super active and push my limits but sometimes it’s necessary for mental sanity and physical well-being to back off of intense training and rest. I have no doubt that I’ll come back stronger than ever on the other side! Another benefit of taking more rest days has been more sleep and more free time to do things like hang out with Brandon, cook and bake. Love it!
FEELING love – from friends, family, students and YOU!!!
Creeping back into some seriousness right now but recently I have felt so grateful and blessed for all of the love and support I have been receiving from my friends, family, students and you. Things have changed a bit over the last few months as I’ve taken on more teaching commitments and focused more on my blog. My schedule is pretty jam-packed but I am so lucky for the opportunity to do the things I love with the support of my family and friends. I really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with you and can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your comments and emails…they totally make my day and make all the time I put into my blog worthwhile!
What’s in your top 5 right now?
