Birthday Bestie

Today was a pretty darn good day! We didn’t rush and get up real early. Actually enjoyed bumming around for a bit. We did eventually load our fur pups up and head to the dog park. We have had such gloomy, wet, cold weather lately and my babies were getting a lil cabin fever! The sun was shining bright today though and we soaked it up!

After they were good and worn out, we took them home to nap and we headed out for a delicious lunch at Bonefish Grill!

We stared with the steamed edamame with green tea salt. Um yum!

I went for the classic fish and chips.

Since it was right next door, we had a quick stop at The Juice Bar after lunch. We Got the Beet is my favorite juice there! Also added an energy shot.

Today was one of my good friends birthdays! So of course we got all dolled up and joined her for a birthday celebration dinner! We went to a new place (this was their first weekend open), Mason Dixon Bakery. It’s a gluten free/paleo place. I don’t have a gluten allergy and am not paleo…at ALL! I just don’t like meat enough to be. But! It wasn’t about me, so I was more than happy to try it our for her! She loved it and that’s all that really matters. :)

My favorite picture of the night! She has the most awesome daughter!!

For some reason, I didn’t take any pictures of the food? Maybe because I was too busy yapping? Who knows? We finished off the night with a huge birthday margarona! I shared one with the guest of honor! :)

That was my most awesome Saturday in a nutshell!

Off and Running

2015 is officially off and running (pun totally intended)! I had my first race of the year today, Xterra 4 Mile Trail Race. It was sunny, a balmy 16°F and FUN!

Nature’s winter version of a slip and slide…ice everywhere. Made for some awesome views though! :)

First race of the year DONE! Despite the biting cold, it was so much fun. Maybe because of all the warm hearts? :)

Didn’t hang around long afterwards, headed with my bud Melissa to Starbucks for some coffee to start the thawing process! LOL

Next up! I start my Half Marathon Training! Here’s to hoping for a half that I’m NOT devastated, hurt, crying and mad at the finish line. I mean, the third time’s a charm, right?

Space & Rocket Center

We spent a HUGE chunk of today at the home of Space Camp. I’ve lived in Huntsville since 1991 and, sadly, other than diving in the under water astronaut trainer tank, have never gone to the space museum. They have an exhibit going on right now, 101 Inventions That Changed the World (plus 101 Inventions Launched From the Rocket City). It was a 4+ hour BLAST!!!!!!!

SO many pictures ahead! :)
