A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

The weekend I ate everything

Saturday, September 21, 2013

What a perfect Saturday. Currently, Dan and I are watching Bob the Builder with Dan's nephew, Cole. He's been entertaining us for hours now. We went for a walk, ate pizza, had a dance party, and watched a lot of children's programming on Netflix. Thank God for Netflix. Dan and Cole are crawling in a box together and calling it a tree house. Love.


Swoon.
I'm casually dubbing this weekend, the weekend I ate everything. Here's why. 

Last night after work, we met up with four other couples for dinner. It's completely rare that the ten of us ever have free time all at the same time, but we were able to make it work. We ended up eating at Soho, a Japanese Bistro in town. It was our first time there, and we loved the atmosphere and the food. So, after we ordered some sushi, we also got soup, salad, fried rice, vegetables, and chicken. A LOT of it. And, when we were done, we didn't want to separate yet, so we went to Coldstone for dessert (naturally, I went for Oreo creme with cookie dough mixed in... a cool 620 calories!). It was so great to visit with everyone, and the food was delicious. 

This morning, Andrea, my coworker Tom, and I took on the challenge of the Gameday Chase 10K. I felt great after my run last weekend, but I didn't sleep well last night and woke up feeling sore, so I wasn't sure how today would go. Thankfully, running with my friends made all the difference, and we were able to support each other to the finish line. Final time? ONE WHOLE second faster than last week. I am nothing if not consistent. 


Tom, Andrea, and I finishing the race strong!
After I'd cleaned up, we met up with my parents and Godson Jacob to go to Middlebury. Why, you ask? Because we wanted to do something different and eat delicious food. Naturally, we ended up at two places: Das Essenhaus and Rise and Roll Donuts. If you've never been to one or both of these places, I can safely say you're missing out. There's nothing better than Amish noodles, mashed potatoes, chicken, CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CREAM PIE, and, of course, following all of this up with Cinnamon Caramel donuts. Think I'm overstating the awesomeness of these two establishments? I am not. So, after eating our way through Amish country...

...we ordered pizza tonight for dinner. Because we didn't have anything to make? No. Because we didn't have any leftovers? No. Because we were super hungry? Heck no. We ordered pizza because we had Cole over and it was an excuse. UGH. 

Oh, and then, we had some Rise and Roll donuts. Double ugh. 

Thankfully, we don't eat like this every weekend, and there was a 10K involved today, but tomorrow is definitely time to get back on track. Lots of fruit and veggies and healthy autumn awesomeness coming our way! 

I'm looking forward to not setting an alarm tomorrow, to enjoying a quiet day, to doing some grading, and to relaxing while we watch the second to last episode of Breaking Bad! Excited!
