Every time I see this truck pull in my driveway I sing “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” by Kip Moore. (Similarly, every time I walk onto an airplane I sing “Drunk On A Plane.” Gotta love country music! PS. I’m going to see Luke Bryan this weeeeeeekkkkend!! Love him!
Do you notice the short sleeves?! We hit 83 degrees on Wednesday and it was GLORIOUS! Gus and I went for a lovely run on the trail and I was actually burning up hot in my jacket!
I ate half of a Bodos bagel with cream cheese, jam, and egg for breakfast with a bunch of blueberries. Felt quite summery!
Lunch was a Hugh Jass salad with turkey, walnuts, red peppers, cheese, and homemade dressing.
Mazey and I ran some errands in the afternoon. First to Sweet Haus for cupcakes for Ellen’s birthday. We stopped by Thomas’s office on the way home to deliver a chocolate cupcake and had to hide on the stairs while he finished a phone call. Mazen scared the pants off of him!
We also had to return some headphones to Best Buy (I am still hunting for the ideal running wireless pair – any suggestions?) and stopped into the pet store on our way out to see the birds.
Late afternoon I relaxed on the porch with a magazine and a warm breeze. Ahhhh.
We made Pinch of Yum’s Queso Crockpot Chili for dinner. The first night we had it traditionally in bowls.
And the following night… as nachos!
Salads on the side.
We’re expecting rain all weekend long. Blah!! But….the sun will come out to-morrow!

So jealous of you and your t-shirt weather! 🙂 Meanwhile here in Hong Kong, we’re having a cold spell and it’s rainy at the same time. Cold, rainy and humid – miserable! 🙁

I love my wireless Beats headphones. Great sound and stay in place. My husband gave them to me for Christmas a year ago and I was hesitant at first. But they stay in place while I run and do HIIT workouts!
I think those are the ones Thomas tried first, but they have a “necklace” right? I need some that are totally wireless! I wear a $20 Plantronics bluetooth headset and pretty much love it, so I’m just looking for something with zero wires and better sound.
I have JBL wireless headphones and love them. They are over the head because the ones that stick in your ears do NOT work for me!
AirPods. I’ve tried 4 other brands and they’re the only ones that have yet to fall out on a run. They’re expensive but will get so much use that I know they’re worth it!
I have debated them, but others told me they are not for sweating or running!
Andrea Johnson says
I just read that they are working on a water resistant pair – maybe those would be a better fit?
Glad you guys are getting some nice weather! Look at the bose sound sport. I have the older version which has a wire between the earbuds, but the newer version is totally wireless. They have great sound and stay put well.
I have been using these: https://www.amazon.com/Jaybird-Bluetooth-Headset-iPhone-Android/dp/B01MECNLU5?th=1. I have trained for a marathon with them and, while it took me a while to figure out which ear piece set up worked best for me (dangle the cord in the front all the way!), the sound quality and battery life are great and I love them!
And my husband went through testing several last year (including the Jaybird ones I use), and finally splurged for these:https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/headphones/earphones/soundsport-wireless.html?mc=25_PS_HP_PL_00_GO_&gclid=CjwKCAiAlL_UBRBoEiwAXKgW5zxnVK77XjInB9f0ka7yMZo-bUHZYejAlaooPx876HsUbxdurUYCOxoC6MYQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
FTR he runs marathons with them and sweats like none-other and he has had no issues! Pairs them with his apple watch and they last several hours.

this girl at my gym had the new apple wirless headphones and she said she LOVES them and runs with them all the time! I want them!
I’ve tried sooo many wireless headphones for running and am thrilled to have finally found some that stand up well to moisture and don’t fall out of my ears every few steps – Phaiser BHS-530 . At only $27 on Amazon, I don’t feel too badly about sweating them up or frying them in the rain.
Now that is a price I can handle! Since I sometimes send mine through the wash …!
BOSE. SOUNDSPORT. (with the wire! i saw recently they came out with airpod-style ones but can’t speak to how those fit/work)!!!! I have had mine for a year and a half now and honestly if they broke today or I lost them I wouldn’t wait more than a day to shell out for a new pair. Worth every dollar and amazing for phone calls, too!
Ok I’m going to look into these if you swear by them that strongly!
Linda @ the Fitty says
Okay wait, WHAT?! You put cheese in the crock pot and made dip?! I’ve only ever used mine to make soup.
No I made a queso chili!
Bose Soundsport!! My husband got them for me for Christmas and they’re THE BEST! They don’t hurt, they stay in (even during speedwork and lots of sweat) and the sound is incredible! I highly recommend them! Good luck on the hunt!
How was that chili? I was thinking about making it tonight…
Very good! Loved the cheese. I used frozen peppers and frozen roasted corn and didn’t do any of the roasting in a skillet so it was super easy. I also added everything but the cheeses in the start and then just the cheeses at the end to simplify the process. It turned out great.

I love my AirPods and bought these covers that I use when running. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019BREFE4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They stay put and don’t move. I had tried Jaybirds and other styles but these are so much better.
When I read the title of this post I immediately had that song in my head!!!! I LOVE country music!
Hey do you listen to the Bobby Bones show? he is the mentor this season of American Idol! And Luke is a Judge! How awesome! XOXO
Anne Clark says
I LOVE these babies!
My hubby got them for me for Christmas and I couldn’t be happier with them.
I love my AirPods and probably run 4-5 times per week in them! Sound quality is excellent and they feel very secure – I’ve never worried that they might fall out. I tested a few different pairs before buying and these were by far the best.

Okay, so now I am craving nachos!!! Yum!!
Great are your ideas for meals, I have more and more problems finding ideas for dinner, I do the same every few days, I often do not have enough time to do something more complicated.
