It’s Friday, my friends! And it’s a beautiful one, too. :) Love those gorgeous fall leaves! You know what I really love about running?

Morning, friends! This week has marked my return to the world of offices and packed lunches. As I mentioned last week, I’m renting some desk space in downtown DC because I was getting super lonely working from home all the time.

Good morning! I’m riding a pretty sweet endorphin high right now thanks to an a.m. run with these lovely ladies. I met up with my college buddies Kathleen and Sarah at 7 a.m. down on the National Mall. It had been too long since we all met up since we’ve all been traveling a ton lately!

When the weather gets hot, I always want Mexican food for dinner. Anyone else? Matt whipped up a variation of my Mexican Lasagna (<—click for recipe, it’s a good one!) for us for dinner last night.
