Good morning everyone! First off, I feel the need to apologize for the bad lighting in some of the following pictures. It was a great night of food, but apparently eating good food out means bad lighting for pictures. Just sayin’ is all 🙂
SOOOOO, we ended up going to Via Toscana last night with Jason, Steph, Arlene (Steph’s mom), Robbie, and Stef, and it was AMAZING!!! The Med is a great place too, but this place had even better deals without the hassle of dealing with traffic in downtown Boulder. The happy hour menu is online, but here’s my special little copy:
Y’all, this place is amazing. Nate and I spent $20 total (that’s for my meal, his food, 2 beers, and tip) which is a steal! It was so fun to see Robbie & Stef again, too – they’ve been in Mexico for a week! Lucky kids 🙂 We ran home to feed the dogs, drop our stuff off, and head out again. We went to Baker Street Pub for some pool with Jason & Steph, Arlene, and TJ & Brenda.
We had a lot of fun…Steph and Brenda are both pregnant (can you say “baby fever”?) I got to sit and listen to them talk about the changes their bodies are going through and hear the excitement in their voices. I know Nate and I aren’t planning on trying for kids until another year from now at least, but it’s definitely something that I’m becoming more and more comfortable with. I used to think I didn’t want kids (the thought of gaining weight FREAKED.ME.OUT) but about a year into marriage I realized that I can’t wait to raise children with my husband 🙂 What about you? Do you want kids? Or not? We all have our choice to make, and there’s certainly no right or wrong answer!
This morning I got up and did Whittle My Middle, and then started on a yoga workout that proved to be too difficult, so I didn’t finish it. That made me feel like a major slacker, but I sat down and just stretched instead. As I said yesterday, I’ve noticed that when I stretch out my legs – specifically hamstrings – my knee doesn’t hurt when I do my cardio later on. Even though I hate not finishing things, I think it was good for me to just sit and stretch instead. Afterwards I did a Purple Monster (same as the Green(ish) Monster sans strawberries and added 1 Tbsp of flax meal):
And a big glass of iced coffee:
On the way to work today we were talking about our dogs as though they were our children, which of course is a completely normal thing to do. Right? Right. Nate mentioned that Keira probably would talk like a younger Queen Latifah if she could speak…he feels like she would be able to spread that sassiness 🙂 I laughed SO HARD at that, but mainly because I realized that we were talking about our DOGS. We couldn’t figure out what Bunker would sound like though…maybe a mix of Denzel Washington and Jamie Foxx? Yes, I’m serious 🙂 Anyway, it was a great start to the day – the conversation made me smile and now every time I look at my dogs I can’t help but laugh a little bit!
If you have pets, do you ever give them voices or personalities? What kind of pet do you have? What voice have you superimposed on them before? I think I’m going to be laughing at the comments a little later on this one… 🙂
