Things That Make Me Say Yeay

Caprese salad with fresh tomatoes from our garden. This might be my favorite little snack IN THE whole wide world.

Sometimes you have to have chocolate...so make it good chocolate. Dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt did the trick.

Mud run with my three girlfriends! We had SO much fun!

I promise I was running not walking like it looks like I was doing in this picture. On a side note: Do you ever see pictures of yourself and think...NO way my butt is THAT big....def bad camera angle. After looking through all of the mud run pictures I have come to terms that my butt really is that big. I am learning to embrace it :)

The first clouds I have seen in months. Fall is almost here!

Butt? What butt Lindsay? You've got to be kidding. You look fantastic even under all that mud. I'm looking forward to Caprese Salad this summer with my homegrown tomatoes and basil.

Oh my gosh, that salad and the chocolate?? I'll have that now please :) That mud run looks so fun too! And I think everyone looks at pictures of themselves and has something negative to say. Even covered in mud you look great though!

Your mud run looks like so much fun! haha I totally know what you mean about pictures - I'm always like really?! Do I seriously have a double-chin in real life or does it just show up on pictures?! I hate that. And yeay for good dark chocolate - that's my favorite!

I'm moving out of the country today, and I bought myself 4 bars of that chocolate because I will miss it so much! That salad looks amazing, too. Our tomatoes never turned red, so we had to settle for lots of fried green tomatoes and no caprese. Bummer.

Was the whole course muddy? Your butt is not big at all, just think Kim K and you're tiny for life :).

Pretty sunset picture, it's been overcast the last two days here so I think our summers finally ending, dangit.

That looks crazy fun. But running is my arch nemisis. I'm trying to defeat him though.

That mud run looks so fun! Definitely have to add that one to the life list! :)

And that chocolate looks awesome. I love anything with chocolate and caramel!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Star- it was sooo much fun!!

Tabitha- yep the whole course was pretty much muddy. There were these giant mud pits with netting that you had to crawl under so you were practically swimming in mud at some points!

Susan said...

Umm hello that salad looks so good! And I love that sunset. So gorgeous!

jessica {creative index} said...

i hate running. and i hate the mud. so i'll pass on that! ;)

ohkeeka said...

I love those chocolate bars. They're so hard to resist when they put them by the checkout line. :)

Amy said...

i get tired and out of breath just looking at that mud run picture... way to go! i had to have caprese salad after i saw that pic. thanks !

Heather said...

When's the next mud run? I'm in! xo

Finley said...

The salad looks amazing (esp after I had my 1st McDonalds burger in years - and now I'm sick that I did it!)

I wish I could be someone who could do a mud run, but that would require me to 1) RUN and 2) stand getting dirty/sweaty. I'll just admire you for it. :)

Joanna said...

I'm so excited for fall to be here! I'm over the heat. Good job on the mud run! I would love to do one someday!

Anna said...

Whoa whoa whoa. EXCUSE ME - that top photo actually makes my mouth water. I love tomato and will require how to make them immediatley - I know it looks really simple but I assure you I could probably stuff it up haha. And Lindsay your a fox! I knew you were a stunner from the odd photo we get to see if you post one about yourself (like those adorable attempted family shots) but your covered in mud and still look smokin'. I think you should post a few more pics of yourself on here every now and then :)
p.s your ass is NOT that big - its fabulous.

I love caprese salad! The mud looks like so much fun, but I'd hate the messy ride home!

Chunny said...

You look really pretty even there is mud in your face. =)

D (Hiccups) said...

Pshaw, your butt is nothing (really, nothing!) compared to mine and I am right where I'm supposed to be weight to height wise.

P.S. Your blog is absolutely terrific. I'm reading backwards from the current and stealing ideas. O.o Keep up the great work. =:3
