What I’m (fairly) Certain of Wednesday

by lindsay cotter on January 16, 2013

Can I do that? Can I do a spin off WIAW? I think so. I know Jen won’t mind. She’s cool like that. Plus I need to release (share) some thoughts and it just so happens that I have a few recent food pics to go along with it.

I am fairly certain, yes I say fairly because there is a 1% chance I might be wrong on a few of these things, but 99% of the time I a right and it feels good. Winking smile

I am fairly certain that I am behind on a lot of life things (work, laundry, emails, etc). But then again, who is ever ahead? Well besides the  the overachievers. We all know I am not one of those. Ha! I am what you call a “just right” achiever. ONE DAY and ONE WAVE AT A TIME! Amen.

I’m fairly certain that frozen lifeway Kefir is even better when it’s cold out and you drizzle warmed molasses over it with a bit of fruit and GF Love Grown Foods Granola.

I’m fairly certain that 35F is not cold to many people. But when there is a windshield of 23F and it’s drizzling, it’s flipping cold. And I am fairly certain I am a badass for running it. Plus I ran here (picture on right), which makes me even COOLER (pun intended)

I’m fairly certain that we could live off homemade breakfast tacos and my new go to snacks (Grain free Cheesecake Protein Poppers). I made these last week and posted it here.

I’m fairly certain, no wait, I am 100% certain that I am blessed. I know such wonderful people who send me goodie packages. Thank you Kalli for the necklace and thank you Amanda for sending me some David’s Tea. I finally get to try it. YAHOO!

I’m fairly certain that I need these leftovers and a glass of red tonight… okay that I am 100% certain. Happy Wine Wednesday. Winking smile

What are you fairly certain of today?

Cheers!

You won’t catch me out running in that weather! My poor Florida blood will freeze in my body. You’re definitely the coolest for running in it. I am certain that this week I (even though I already hoped) learned that I have amazing friends IRL and in the blog-o-sphere.

You are a total badass for running in those temps (and for more than that, but we will just start there)! I’m 100% certain that today is hump day and it’s gonna give me a run for my money, but I am 100% certain that I will get through it and be better for it! Bring it Wednesday! I can take it!

Reply

Katie January 16, 2013 at 8:50 am

YES! To all points…

35 is cold and you are, most certainly, a badass for running in it! It’s been chilly here too and I’ve been toughing it out and running. [internet high five for us!]

I could live on all tacos… Breakfast tacos are SO GOOD!

I’m laying off the wine for a couple weeks (so sad) so enjoy a glass for me tonight :)

Reply

lindsay January 16, 2013 at 12:59 pm

I will certainly enjoy it for you then! hehe

Oh good. Thanks!

Heather (Where's the Beach) January 16, 2013 at 8:55 am

I’m fairly certain I’ve lost my mind – I actually enjoyed running Monday in the 18 degree windchill LOL. I would have run yesterday had the roads not actually been icy. But I was tempted I won’t lie. And I’m fairly certain you’re more of an overachiever than you think. Emails and laundry…those things don’t count ;-)

kim@hungryhealthygirl January 16, 2013 at 9:30 am

I am definitely certain that I will be on my treadmill running while watching Bachelor and Biggest Loser that I DVR’d! 35 IS cold to me and you are BADASS for running in that kind of weather!

You are such an adorable texan. “windshield”. :) (wind chill). 35° is lovely here at this time of year (which it was yesterday … and 55° on friday … but it’s supposed to be 3° !!! on Monday … eeee).

Also, frozen kefir is DA BOMB.

Have a great day, and hope you catch up on stuff, Lindsay! XOXO

I am 100% certain that tonight is most definitely a winesday mid-week date night in kind of night. It’s snowy and cold and wine plus snuggles with Scott makes everything so much warmer :)

PS. Your breakfast tacos look deeelish. I want them right now. hehe

Pavement Runner January 16, 2013 at 1:02 pm

I’m fairly certain that I want to eat those breakfast tacos. When you come over to borrow my hulk gloves, let’s have those and chat about life updates. Oh ya, bring one of those bags for wifey. Every sherpa should have one.

As a desert dweller (Las Vegas) anything below 60 is frigid to me. Right now, our temps are dropping to 20′s. Will shoot back up to 60+ this weekend.

I’m normally the kind of person who freaks out when the laundry hamper is full and laundry isn’t being done. I’m slowly breaking away from the ‘overachiever’…. I don’t always remember that it’s okay to take time and relax!

Ohh, I’m excited for you to try the tea! I bet you’ll love it! I’m loving all the eats. I want to come over and eat your food:) Heck yes to wine Wednesday! Sometimes we just need that extra glass during the week!

Let me just say HELL YES to lifeway kefir! It is my true love. So yes, I’m glad you like it too. Yay.

Oh and a window popped up asking me for a login & password when I typed in my url in the website box but then I clicked the “x” and it disappeared and I can type the comment in fine. But I think it has to do with the comment luv plugin. Just wanted to let ya know!
