Sunday afternoon, after a quick trip home for provisions, we headed to the movies. We saw a matinée of True Grit, which I just loved. Cowboy movies are so not my thing, but somehow I knew this one would just rock my socks. The story line was funny and touching and I loved the vocabulary.
I packed a baggie of baby carrots,
and bought some Jordan Almonds at the theatre.
We did a quick and easy dinner when we got home.
Baked okra with ketchup,
and two mini buns (split), toasted and topped with leftover spinach dip.
One of our guy friends was flying out Monday afternoon, so we met him that morning for brunch.
A few other friends came along and it was great to catch up with everyone.
I ordered a mahi mahi sandwich with a side of cole slaw.
Delish! Mahi mahi is my favorite kind of fish, so light and flakey.
I left my bun, but devoured everything else.
Dessert (clearly I’m on vacation, who really needs lunch dessert?!?) came at home in the form of 7-layer bar.
Around 4 – we are really watching our sun exposure – Adam and I got in an afternoon workout. We headed to the beach, and amid the frolicing did 30ish minutes of hard swimming.
We met up with visiting family friends for dinner. I wasn’t feeling confident about the healthiness of the meal, so I supplemented with some baby veggies before dinner.
Good thing, because pizza was dinner. I ended up with a shrimp scampi slice,
and a bbq chicken slice.
Adam and I also split a Caesar salad with extra veggies.
And I had a piece of homemade toffee when we got home.
Today (the 28th) is our 3rd wedding anniversary!!! We’ve celebrated by spending the day doing things we both love. Like starting the morning with a run… We got in an hour+ workout that included a bit of walking, 2 miles of running, and the mile uphill walk home. Between today’s run and yesterday’s swim, both of our legs are pretty sore!
Next on the agenda was lunch at our favorite restaurant.
Plus some time sipping coffee and reading.
I ordered a Vietnamese Latte (sweetened with condensed milk),
and Adam and I split the spicy sweet potato wrap (with spinach and rosemary goat cheese).
We’re unsure of the agenda tonight – there’s a party we might skip – but all I really need is an evening with the (3year’s old) husband!
