A recap of last night…….

Pre-dinner: I came home hungry! Lucas’s sister had sent me a b-day package that included some sweet treats, so I had a sampling of some chocolate florentines. Hmmm.
Dinner: I had 2 California rolls and 1 Alaska roll at Koi. (The sashimi is Lucas’s. It as so pretty. Had to take a picture). Plus a glass of Reisling.

Birthday cake and ice cream: a chocolate cake with layers of dulce de leche and covered in ganache…and…Amy’s Mexican Vanilla!!

Ran 4.5 miles home from work.

It was a great day! Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!

I did, I did!

I did do a workout today!

-Ran 25 minutes with Lindsey. Lindsey is an awesome runner, light as a feather and quick as lightening. She had to slow her roll when jogging with me.
-10 minutes of abs & core exercises

Snack: A small apple and a couple of mint M&Ms
Dinner: We went out for sushi. I had edamame, miso soup, a California roll and a tuna roll.
Dessert: A slice of chocolate covered cheesecake and crustless german chocolate pie with a dollop of whipped cream

After dinner, we played some pool back at L & J’s….

I got tired of losing, so we did a bit of posing instead….

Now we are about to watch Pan’s Labyrinth. Love this movie!!

This afternoon we met with our friends Emily and Marcin for tea at Thunderbird Coffee.

Aren’t Em & M sweet?

Emily works at the University of Colorado – Boulder, developing science experiments for NASA astronauts to conduct in space. Um, how cool is that? Very….One of her most recent experiments involved sending butterflies into outer space! The mission got a lot of press, which lead to someone from the Department of Agriculture calling her, demanding to know if she had transported butterflies across state lines! Haha, I love that….Anyway, we had a great time with this cute couple, and only wish they were still living in Austin.

Lunch: Whole grain toast with a smear of peanut butter and agave nectar
Dinner: I ate a tuna roll and split a large cup of chicken tortilla soup with Lucas at Whole Foods.

A light day of eating, since I’m still in recovery mode. But I might have to slip myself a chocolate or two before bedtime–mua-ha-ha!

Took it easy with a 5K at Town Lake

Green heart:
I have solved my dilemma and decided to save a tree instead of subscribing to SELF magazine!
