Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Another week almost done everyone!

Bloggie high five for ya!

I don’t know about you — but this week seemed to have absolutely flown by for this girl.  The first half of the week was pretty booked, so before I know it we were over the hump and onward to Friday.  Just how I like it.

Yesterday/Last Night

Yesterday was my rest day so after a nice walk with Gus and a day at work

Zach surprised me by suggesting that we go to Stella’s, our favorite little Italian spot near us.   Hello, Stella’s never fails, so you know I said HECK YES before he even finished asking.

Unfortunately, the only picture I got of the evening were the amazing zucchini fries that we start with every.single.time.

Seriously, they’re amazing.  Zach suggested we skip the appetizer and go straight to our entrees, but I respectfully QUICKLY squashed that idea.  He thanked me later.

So while I apologize for the lack of pictures, I will share recycled ones as we go their often 🙂

and more foodie pictures.  I actually went with a different salad last night, but stuck with the chicken and same dressing.  It’s just THAT good.

Needless to say we were happy little campers when we got home.  I had a couple mini (well not so mini) cookies from Whole Foods before crashing HARD.  Red wine and good food will always do that to me 🙂

This Morning

I had it in my mind that I was going to tackle a tough work out today, and that’s exactly what I did this morning.  I actually came upstairs afterwords, drank a ton of water, and then just laid down on the ground for awhile.   I was spent, in the best possible way.

Workout of the Day: SPEED WORK

Question of the Morning:  Where do you go that everyone knows your name?  A restaurant?  Bar? Whole Foods? Home Depot? Share! 🙂
