Interesting title, right? Read on…
Wednesday was a rest day and I met up with two of my best girlfriends for some delicious food and this heavenly lavender margarita at The Porch in Winston-Salem. Yes, I said lavender margarita. It was absolutely ridiculous that it was $8 and in a teeny tiny mason jar, but it was good.
Now that we are getting older our “girls nights” are happening less and less often, especially since we all live in different towns. We got to the restaurant at 5:15 and all of a sudden we realized it was 8:30… we had a lot to talk about. It was so nice to not worry about running for a night and just be able to enjoy some quality time with some amazing friends.
Thursday I got home from work and took Dixie out for her daily walk. It’s entirely too hot to try to take her for a run, so we are sticking to shorter walks instead. As much as I want to run with her, I know it’s not safe for her to run in 95 degree heat, and we all know I’m not a morning runner. After our walk she laid on our bed right in front of the fan like the little princess she is. She loves a cool breeze in her hair after a workout. I love when her cute little spotted tongue is hanging out.
I headed over to the gym for my run on the treadmill. I did 4 slooooow recovery miles at 8:50 pace while I got caught up on Orange is the New Black. My legs felt heavy and slow, but the scandalous happenings on Netflix successfully distracted me for 35 minutes.
Dinner was one of my favorite (super easy) recipes – Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I was really proud of myself for eating dinner by 8 pm tonight.
Even though it’s been 95 degrees every day here, I still like to drink hot chocolate at night. It’s either hot chocolate or wine, and tonight I really wanted hot chocolate. How cute is this mug my aunt got me at my bridal shower?
It is actually a set of two. The other one says “Advice for the groom” and the front is the same. Basically, I should make myself happy and then Thomas should make me happy and then we will live happily ever after
Speaking of being happy…. HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m excited for my second dress fitting today and then a weekend full of absolutely no plans.
What time do you usually eat dinner? Do you eat in front of the TV like us or at the table like normal civilized people?
Anyone else drink hot chocolate in the summer?
Do you have a “no plan” weekend coming up?
