WIAW- 5 Years Strong

Five years ago today, Jason and I decided to officially become boyfriend and girlfriend! And now here we are…married, halfway through law school together and still going strong. Five years is a long time, I really can’t believe it’s been that long. What’s so surprising to me is that even after five years of being best friends attached at the hip, our relationship is always changing and we’re still learning things about each other as we learn and grow as people. For example, I have recently learned that Jason hates how I can spend all day reading food blogs like a zombie. Oops. I’ll work on that. Tomorrow.

Breakfast: pumpkin pie smoothie (pumpkin puree, frozen banana, almond milk, a little peanut butter, sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice)

Second Breakfast/Early Lunch: rolled oats with almond milk, banana butter, and apple butter mixed in

Snack: Fuji apple (one of the ones we picked!) eaten on the go…literally…so excuse the blur

Second Lunch: leftover homemade mushroom pizza, leftover roasted acorn squash

Dinner: Sockeye Salmon Fillet w/ Bonefish Grill’s Pan Asian Sauce, smashed potatoes, stir-fried cabbage and baby bok choy

Dessert: a slice of pumpkin-brownie swirl loaf…aka fall heaven in brownie/bread form

Like my invention of new meals? That’s what happens when you’re in a hurry and eat whatever you fancy when you’re hungry…either that or I’m a hobbit. Maybe I should drop the whole “second breakfast/early lunch” thing and just go with official hobbit names like “elevenses” (if you know what I’m talking about then I love you dearly, if not then consider yourself normal). Hobbits were the original intuitive eaters. Take note.

I’m going to go drown myself in Criminal Minds and then attempt to get a good night’s rest. Thanks for reading!

    Congrats on five years, may you have many, many more.

  2. Awww, congrats on 5 happy years together and here’s to many more! I try my best to leave the zombie blog reading to times when Joey isn’t home, but zombie tweet reading is a different story.

  3. congrats! your comment on him hating how you read blogs like a zombie cracks me up because my bf gets so mad too! he knows when i open my computer “for a second,” that without even realizing it, hours will go by! oops πŸ˜‰ So i try to do it when he’s not around and make it my “me” time activity.

  4. Hahaha I definitely lose a lot of sleep/productivity due to my obsession with reading blogs πŸ˜‰

  5. that pumpkin bread looks so fantastic. must make soon.
