I Could Get Used to This

I started the day off yesterday with a run. The weather was perfect and the leaves finally started changing colors on the trees. 
Instead of running around the park like I used to, I’ve started running through my neighborhood.  I find myself getting lost in the place where I’ve lived my whole life and it’s kind of fun deciding which way to go to get home. The change in scenery is great and makes me want to run more often.

I came home from school to a wonderful dinner made by my wonderful boyfriend.

Tommy cooked up delicious steak, which was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had in my life.  He served it with long grain wild rice and edamame on the side. We both agreed that it’s better the get a pricier steak and really enjoy it once in a while, than to get any old steak from the supermarket.

I told him I could get used to coming home to dinner every night, especially if it’s this yummy.

For dessert, we had some Dark Chocolate Pretzel Crisps.  These bad boys taste just like a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha, so if you’re a fan of the drink, you will love these. I know I do, maybe a little too much. They taste just like Christmas to me.  I think I might’ve jumped on the crazy early Christmas wagon. I didn’t mean too, but I love Christmas.

Continuing with my Thankful November list, F is for friends and family.

I have a great group of people who I get to call my friends and family, and I know I can always count on them.  I sure as heck wouldn’t be who am I today without them, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Have a great Thursday!

  1. Who wouldn't like to come home and have dinner ready?! What a delish dinner!

    Since I work from home, I'm usually the one preparing dinner before my husband gets home. Or sometimes we cook together (and on occasion, just order pizza!).

  2. Enjoyed your post and love your blog!

    I definitely love to be spoiled and have someone cook for me!

    Thanks so much for hopping by! I'm happily returning the follow on FB and GFC!

    Have a wonderful rest of the week!

    • Luckily, I don't have a Starbucks anywhere near my house, otherwise I think I'd be making those runs all too often.

  3. I definitely prefer to cook for myself because then I know what goes in it, but sometimes its nice to have my boyfriend cook for me. 😉

    • As much as I hate winters in NY, I don't think I could move to a warmer climate bc I would miss fall too much. The trees don't lose their leaves in Florida?

  4. I would have to say both! I love cooking but I also love when my fiance cooks dinner for me. 🙂 Those pretzels sound amazing!

    • I agree with you completely! I love being in the kitchen, but it's nice to come home to have a yummy dinner waiting for you too.

  5. Hi, I stumbled across your blog quite by accident when I googled for a chicken divan recipe. I ended up reading quite a bit of it. Not only did I get the impression that you were a very nice person but it also gave me insight into life in the US. (I am in southern Africa). Your cranberry bars sound delightful and look forward to making them.

    • Thank you for you comment. It's very sweet! Where in Africa are you from? I've always dreamt about traveling to Africa, but with the exception of South Africa, I know very little about the continent. I hope you enjoy the recipes! 🙂
