Having an awesome Sunday so far? I sure hope so
Yesterday morning I met my friend, Missy, at her gym for a 4.5 mile run and some legs. I was pretty happy I was easily able to finish the run, because I haven’t really been doing many runs over 3.5 miles lately. However, my training schedule for the half marathon starts calling for long runs every Saturday, so I better get used to that again
Around 11:00, I met another friend out for coffee, chit chat, and a little shopping, per our usual weekend tradition. I got there a little early, so I munched on half of a vegan oatmeal raisin cookie:
Which was consumed in its entirety by the day’s end. Yum!
Got home, cleaned, and just piddled around the house until it was time for some lunch
Just a simple lunch of TJ’s Organic tomato soup and some kale chips
Mmm crunchy goodness.
Did a wee bit of laundry, and then when the hubski announced it was happy hour time, I certainly didn’t oblige.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, baby! Ok…maybe it was 5 o’clock here
We had plans to go out to eat and play some euchre with another couple tonight, so when they got to our house, we all went out to Hyashi – a Japanese/sushi restaurant here in town.
I started out with some Plum wine, while everyone else ordered Japanese beer.
And for dinner, I got…
Seaweed salad!… which was all right..
Miso soup, which was bomb, and a mushroom vegetable roll, which was also bomb!
Bunk volcano..which apparently turns into a choo choo train when it moves? Choo choo!!
They also served us each a complimentary dessert of coffee ice cream, which was delicious!
It was around 9 or so when we got back to the crib, so we got out euchre faces on. The girls let the boys win (poor boy egos ) and it was tons of fun! Another couple ended up coming over to join in the fun, too. We stayed up past 2:00, so I needed another meal. Clearly.
I destroyed this new-that-day salsa and some organic blue chips.
Best salsa EVER, by the way
So glad I only had one drink when we got back to the house, though. I knew I didn’t want to be hungover today, so I sipped on water the rest of the night. Good call!
Kim and Jason stayed the night, and after some reminiscing and chattin’ it up, it was time for some breakfast! My stomach was a-growlin’ and I knew just what to give it:
Oats and coffee! If there ever were a perfect pair…
The ushe – banana blueberry flax oats.<
Now I’m on my second cup of coffee since the husband didn’t want any, and am about to go hit up the gym. Arms today! Then hopefully convincing the husband or some friends to go see Avatar. I still haven’t seen it and really just want to know what it’s all about.
If you stay up later than usual, do you typically feel the need to have a big snack or 4th meal? (whether accompanied by drinking or not;)) If I’ve been drinking, I’ll typically have a junky food (aka chips and salsa) before I go to bed, but if there’s no drinking involved, that fourth meal tends to be in the form of a dessert
Have you seen Avatar? What’dya think?
