Happy Sunday! I apologize for the slightly later than normal post you guys. I try my best to get everything up at 8am but I was too busy enjoying myself last night to want to break away to type this up, you understand right? Have a wonderful day 🙂
Saturday morning started with an 8 mile run cut down run. I hadn’t done 8 miles in years so I was a little nervous. In order to keep my times straight, I wrote them on my hand in Sharpie. I tried out a new energy source, Honey Stinger energy chews during it. The flavor was totally fine and I don’t think it had a bad reaction with my body but chewing and running is hard! If you prefer chews, more power to you. This just shows how different people react to different energy sources.
I got home to shower and get ready for the day. I probably looked a little ridiculous at the grocery store with my makeup fully done but in comfy clothes. Who cares, am I right?! I got home and made myself a ham sandwich and enjoyed it with chips and salsa on the side. I had to pull a handful of chips onto my plate then put the back away so I didn’t eat the whole thing. Put chips and salsa in front of me and my self control flies out the window.
Since it was Saturday, Alex and I watched a little college football while getting some things done around the apartment. Soon it was time to get dressed up for our dinner. Earlier in the week, we celebrated our one year dating anniversary and we decided to go out to dinner this weekend so we weren’t rushed or tired.
We found a local Italian restaurant called Romeo’s that is split up into a nice restaurant and then a pizzeria on the other side. It was such a nice night so we asked to sit outside. The restaurant is BYOB so we brought along a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay and it was delicious! We started our meal with some warm rolls and calamari. I don’t really like seafood but Alex made me promise to try it, so I did. If it was a really small piece with mostly breading and only a little squid then I would eat those. Barely any calamari but it counts right??
For our main meal, I got rigatoni vodka and Alex got the fettuccini Alfredo. Both were delicious! We mentioned how we felt like we ate a ton but our bowls barely reflected that. So we wrapped up all of the leftovers and brought them home.As we were leaving the restaurant, a man came to be seated and told us he was going to smoke and would that bother us. We said no since we were going to be leaving soon anyway but both commented on how kind of that man it was to ask! I have never been in a situation like that. Neither Alex nor I smoke so we thought it was awesome for the man to ask us. Yay for considerate people!
We weren’t sure if we would get dessert out but we were both stuffed so we opted for no dessert before heading home to hang out on the couch before heading to bed.
Question of the day: Are you someone who likes to go out to celebrate a milestone or stay home to celebrate?
