I am looooving my summer vacation so far!!
I cannot believe how much teaching stressed me out! I honestly feel like I can live in the moment now instead of dream about the end of the school year all. day. long!
I have been having a hard time sleeping though. They daylight is killing me!
Check out our sunrise/sunset times:
Sunrise: 4:49 a.m.
Sunset: 11:07 p.m.
And it isn’t like the rest of the time it is dark outside. When I wake up at 2 or 3 o’clock at night, there is still a hint of light in the sky!
I am going to take a bunch of pictures and post them very soon, so you, too, can see what it is like here! Although, pictures don’t do justice to the real thing, which is why you should come and visit me this summer and see what is like in the land of the Midnight Sun!
My run this morning was a short one: 5 miles, but slow: 45 minutes.
I had to hurry home for another Thursday morning coffee date!
coffee + overnight oats
My overnight oats were not-so-delicious. I added frozen fruit last night and when they melted, it made my oats all watery–bleh!
After our coffee date, I hit up the gym for 45 minutes of weight lifting.
I focused mostly on my upper body muscles and only did a couple lifts for my legs because they are pretty sore from the week.
It hit a whopping 74 degrees today, and if you know anything about Alaska weather (at least for Southcentral Alaska) that’s a heatwave! I was thoroughly enjoying the temps and the sunshine today!
I also enjoyed a little shopping spree this afternoon at the Gap and Banana Republic. Gap was giving 40% off almost all purchases, and I scored 50% off my total purchase at Banana Republic. I love a great deal!
