Not Too Much Here

by Meghann on August 28, 2010

Maddie has had a tough weekend.


Extra treats from my parents, tug of war with Scooby, an hour of rough housing with Oliver and Sadie… I would be pooped too.

Actually, I was pooped. After I put my post up this afternoon I crashed for a good hour and a half. It was wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was awoke to the sweet smells of dinner coming from the kitchen.


My Dad had made an old childhood favorite (swiss steak) with mashed potatoes, pickled beets, green beans, and toast with butter. The meal was very ‘all american’ and really brought me back in time. I’m not sure I can remember the last time I had a true steak and potatoes meals – it was delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚

I stopped at my sister’s on the way home to wish Anthony a happy birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTHONY!!!) and let Oliver and Sadie finish what Scooby had started in wearing Maddie out.

Once home I made a dessert bowl of fresh figs, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate granola.


It’s 9:00 on a Saturday night and I’m already in my PJs watching a pre-recorded Lifetime movie from earlier this week. Life is good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow I have a shorter long run (12 miles) and then breakfast plans with a special blogger in town – can’t wait!

Good night!

Seriously sometimes there is nothing better than steak and potatoes. And naps with Maddie ๐Ÿ˜‰ Enjoy your night Meghann!

It’s 7PM on the West Coast, and I’m wearing a Snuggie and watching The Soup with my sister. Life is good.

I was just commenting on Caitlin’s blog and how awesome it is that we all love our pets so much! And how silly it is that we blog about them so often ๐Ÿ™‚

And don’t feel bad about an early night…right now I’m in my PJ’s and maybe have been since 8? It’s a rough life we lead ๐Ÿ™‚

I just had a meat and potatoes meal the other day (first time in a long time)–it made me feel like a kid again.

Steak and potatoes = good, filling comfort food! Hope you have a good night tonight and a good run tomorrow!
