Hey guys! This has been the quietest week on the blog in a while but one of the busiest week’s of my life! Who knew turning 25 would have the effect of a tornado sweeping away all of my time?
I’ve been super tired/sore since recovering from the 20-miler. I’ve had a ton of work stuff going on, and it seems like my house is capable of multiplying the dishes and dirty laundry overnight!
Monday, I went out with hubs for a birthday dinner. Tuesday, I had a work event. Wednesday, I ran 5 miles and meal planned. And when I finally sat down last night to blog, my blog was down!
It was very clearly not working, so I Tweeted my host tech support. Funny thing, five minutes later they said “Looks like it’s working fine to us!” And it worked again. Very odd…
Anyway! Let’s back up to Monday birthday dinner 🙂
We went to this really fancy place right around the corner from us. I knew it was fancy, but it was even fancier than I realized. I went with it.
I got a really good glass of wine. They had some biscuit type bread that I think were sweet potato based? I’m not really sure, but they were good.
I got a salad to start. It looks really plain and didn’t sound amazing on the menu, but it was so good.
Arugula, oranges, avocado, pepper, and very potent pickled red onions. Soooo good.
Then I got sweet potato gnocchi with asparagus. It has kind of a limey tasting sauce with almonds.
To die for.
Hubby got friend haddock with salad, which I had a bite of and was pretty good. He said it was great. Fried fish is not really my thing though 😉
We got a coconut flan for dessert, which I was sad to say was not my favorite.
Dessert should be amazing, but I really didn’t like the texture or flavor. Oh well.
After we got home from dinner, I got to open a present from my husband. He made me wait all day long, which was both silly and cute. He got me this dress.
It looks way better on than it does on the hanger. I love stripes! He wanted to get me something I could wear to both work and out on the weekends. Perfect and just in time for spring.
And that’s all I got for ya. Thanks for all the birthday love and congratulations about my race from Tuesday’s post <3 Hoping to make some more time for regular blogging come next week, but I keep saying that, don’t I? I’m really just trying to go with the flow these days, whether that means I’m on social media/the blog or not.
Have a great weekend!
