So Long Summer Break

by Ashley on July 8, 2012

Good morning and happy Sunday!

Not sure if I ever thought this day would come, but today marks my last day of my “summer break” and tomorrow marks the start of a career I’ve been working toward for the past few years.  I am beyond thrilled to start my internship at the Mayo Clinic TOMORROW morning at 7:30 am.

The past few months have been nothing short of amazing, as Dustin and I got to spend time in various cities with family and friends and just enjoy life. I’m excited to get back on a schedule and continue working toward my goals.

As summer vacay comes to a wrap, it’s time to get my ducks in a row and prepare for what the next eight months hold.  First stop: COSTCO.

Nothing helps me feel more prepared to take on the week (and excites me) more than a fully stocked kitchen…

Dustin and I were members at Costco back in the baseball playing days, but when we moved back to GA we never rejoined.  I guess there is something about living in FL and us being members there? Who knows. We felt the time was right and made our way back to that mosterous place since it is just a few miles from our house.  Since Dustin and I eat relatively the same foods every week (minus veggies), grocery shopping there makes sense.  There were only a few items that I had to run in Publix for, like unsweetened Almond milk and Ezekiel bread, but other than that, we were good to go.  We even found a few goodies there too, like the center picture above.  I’ve been wanting to make Stuffed Grape Leaves for a while after enjoying them so much at the St. Augustine farmers market, but when we saw them at Costco, they looked too good to turn down. They would be so easy to make though: grape leaves, brown rice, tomatoes, red peppers, olive oil, and a few more ingredints: I think I can handle that.

Anyways, today I plan on listening to North Point  Community Church Online, running a few more errands to prepare for tomorrow, enjoying a long run with the hub and pups, and maybeee laying on the beach for a few hours. We will see what all gets done.  Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday!

Good health!
