Most important matters first.
Happy birthday to my best friend for life! You all need to wish Lisha a happy birthday. 8ish years ago this little bird came up to me in the library and asked if I could drive her home because she locked her keys in her car. (Ha!) I didn’t know who this girl was, but she told me we had a mutual best friend, Jen. I awkwardly drove her home, but ever since that moment, we’ve become inseparable and best friends. This girl is my biggest supporter in life, love, fitness and blogging, and I couldn’t imagine my life without her. Happy birthday almost birthday-twin! Love you forever! Enjoy your day beautiful <3
Last night after work, I met up with Mike for a catch-up dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s.
This is where Mike and his then boyfriend David, took me for my 21st birthday dinner, and while last night’s dinner wasn’t a birthday dinner, it’s almost fitting that we went there the day after another milestone birthday!
We started off by demolishing the bread and glorious dipping sauce.
It was the best thing I’ve ever dipped bread into. I just wanted to drink it on up. Mike ordered chicken dumplings as an appetizer, before we ordered our meals.
I opted for the Vegetable Spring Rolls appetizer as my meal and Mike went for the BBQ Chicken Pizza.
Can you tell who’s cheat day it was yesterday? 😉
For a solid 6+ months, I’ve been wanting to try Vegetable Spring Rolls, but just never knew where to get them or how to make them, so when I saw them on the menu and gave a thumbs up to the nutritional facts, my dinner was an easy choice. Taken from their site, the rolls were “rice wrappers filled with asparagus, basil, mint, cucumbers, carrots, rice noodles and cilantro pesto, chilled and served with peanut dipping sauce.” Perfect! I’d order these again in a heart beat!
After dinner we had fun taking pictures. This guy is my crazy other half. I couldn’t ask for a better friend then this stud.
Look at that sweet wind-swept accidental sideburn I’m rocking!
After our post-dinner photo shoot, we stopped into GameStop so that he could purchase a headset or whatever it is he needs so he can talk to people while he plays video games. I didn’t know what was going on so I just took pictures and texted a friend while he had bro-talk with the guys that worked there.
I had such a fun night with him and can’t believe I hadn’t seen him since our Starbucks date. It stinks having busy lives and no longer living in the same state, but I think this meeting halfway for dinner during the week will become a reoccuring event! Love you Mikey! 🙂
Another night with a lack of sleep makes for another tired and grumpy girl. I was able to get a great 4 mile run and 100 push-ups in this morning, and know that taking it easy yesterday certainly helped.
Breakfast was my new favorite.
After eating this every morning, I totally don’t miss breakfast smoothies anymore. Toast toast toast is so underrated!!
I have a wicked fun night planned after work. Janine and I are taking a full-length Surfset class and I’m looking forward to seeing how a full workout on the boards goes! I have a feeling I’ll be craving a peanut butter protein shake later tonight!
