Marathon Monday! I’m so excited for everyone running Boston today. I’ve got my Boston Marathon app loaded with multiple friends’ bib numbers and am looking forward to tracking them
How was the rest of your weekend? After Saturday’s run, Anthony and I had a full schedule of fun planned. First, a stop at Woodland Wine for their weekly tasting. We try to go almost every Saturday! We sipped a selection of Spanish wines and actually ended up purchasing a bottle of this rioja –which I packed in my bag to take to my second party of the night.But first, the first party! Literally. My niece just turned one! The whole fam got together at a local park for flower-picking (or flower eating?), ball-tossing, pizza, and cupcakes. Luckily the rain held off for the occasion.Then I was off to party #2: Brita’s blogger dinner! She invited Ashley, Phillip, and I over for a home-cooked meal at her beautiful kitchen table.We started off with some yummy basil-cucumber cocktails. Don’t mind if I do…Plus some stuffed shrooms! You’ll have to check Brita’s blog for the recipe, but I’m pretty sure there was goat cheese in there. Yum.The best part about dining with a bunch of food bloggers? It’s totally not weird to take hundreds of photos of your food. Or even take photos of each other taking photos. Here’s the crew in action….For the main event, Brita whipped up a quiche and green-on-greens salad. Peas and asparagus hiding in there!Over dinner, we talked blogging, food, Nashville, and so much more. Though it’s fun interacting with you (yes, you!) and others over the interwebs, I do love getting together for a face-to-face hangout.Here’s the group! Brita, Phillip, me, and Ashley. Thanks to Brita for hosting us, as well as to her friend who took photos throughout the evening (just in case the four of us didn’t snap enough ourselves. HA.).
And now it’s time to start this magically run-derful Monday. GooooOOOOooooo Boston!
