Last night both Ryan and I slept pretty crappy. When the alarm went off this morning we decided to forgo the gym in favor of more sleep.
I thought I might go to the gym when the alarm went off again at 7 a.m., but opted to finish up an article at home in my pajamas instead. The article and another small project took longer than anticipated this morning and before I knew it, lunchtime was approaching.
Since my activities of the day thus far included trips to and from the pantry, I figured a little walking and fresh air would be good for me in place of a workout.
I ate a quick snack of strawberry banana Greek yogurt and chia seeds to help keep my hunger at bay when I took Sadie on a quick two-mile walk.
Though no awesome animals popped up on our walk, we did stumble upon a cool plant (oxymoron?).
At first I thought someone emptied a bag of Cheetos at the base of the plant, but when I looked closer, I saw that the bright orange things were actually seeds!
I usually find plants and birds kind of boring compared to forest animals, but these seeds were pretty neat.
Clearly there wasn’t much to see on today’s walk.
When we arrived home, I made myself a quick lunch that included angel hair pasta with chicken and tomato sauce served with a side of green beans.
Now it’s time for a little reflection!
Your Top Posts of 2011
At the end of 2010, I did a post highlighting your top PBF posts from the year, as determined by page views.
I thought it might be fun to do something similar again this year as 2011 comes to a close. Rather than share my favorite posts (Sadie overload!), I figured you might be curious about your top posts and get a kick out of seeing what other PBF readers find somewhat intriguing.
2. Turkey Trot and a Filling Thanksgiving (Apparently you guys were quite interested in the debut of my sister’s relationship with our friend Ross!)
There you have it, my friends. Your most-read PBF posts!
As I was clicking around the back end of my blog searching for statistics to compile this post, I got a pretty big kick out of the most common search terms you guys type into the PBF search bar. One of the most popular searches? “Ross.” Apparently my sister’s love life is quite intriguing… especially when it involves one of our good friends. Ha!
Also, if there’s any interest, I can compile a list of your favorite workout posts for easy access, but I didn’t want to overwhelm this post with lists. Just let me know if you’d like to see it and I’ll put it together this weekend.
