Thank you guys for all of the awesome birthday ideas that you’ve been leaving in the comment section all morning. Not only do you guys have a lot of great recommendations for my upcoming celebration, but I’m really enjoying hearing all about your favorite birthday experiences!
Mine would probably be my 16th birthday when a group of friends and I went on a day-long scavenger hunt that my mom had set up around downtown Miami. We had to take pictures as proof that we completed each task, so not only do I have memories of the crazy shenanigans we all got in to, but I have incriminating photography of it as well.
Almost as incriminating as the shots from my 21st birthday in this morning’s post, but that’s a whole different beast 8)
All of this talk about running got me in the mood to hit the pavement this morning. Alana actually told me about a super secret trail (which really is in plain sight..) right by my apartment that I had no idea about! I strapped on my neon shoes, put on my neon running turtleneck, and hit the road.
What can I say, I like neon?
About 1.5 miles down the trail I decided to turn around and head back home, making it a solid 3 mile run. It was really refreshing to be on a trail alongside other runners, bikers, and walking families, as opposed to a random assembly of traffic and buildings.
As soon as I was back inside, my tummy got to work.
A quick snack of a chopped Gala apple, Greek yogurt, stevia, and cinnamon was thrown together and photographed on my living room carpet.
Yeah, I went there.
After digesting and showering, it wasn’t long before my twin arrived–
I swear, we did not plan to match on purpose, nor have we have ever done so before. Will insisted that I was the copycat though, considering the fact that I had a closet to pick another outfit out from and he didn’t.
Not that I changed
We headed to Panera for some study time, took forever trying to connect to the internet, I gulped down a big mug of green tea, and then it was lunch time! Because in the upcoming weeks we have a lot of big occasions coming up (my birthday, our anniversary, Valentine’s day), we’re trying to save our “going out” money for those special dates. Panera was not on the menu, but a big kale feast was!
A bunch of garlicky kale was sautéed on the stovetop and a sliced garlic-spinach chicken sausage was thrown on top. As a side, I roasted my favorite honey gold potatoes and loaded myself up with some ketchup for dipping purposes.
All of the food was served on my favorite zebra plate
Itttt’s laundry time! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
A bit to think about: Have you ever planned to match with a significant other/friend/family member?
