Hello! I have a very Nashville run to share with you today. Starting with a sunrise from the east:and then all of the pretty colors reflecting off the buildings to the west. I have a love/hate relationship with running downtown. I like the scenery but hate the uphill climb back home! Anyways, today’s views were worth it.As I was heading home I spotted a new “I Believe in Nashville” mural. It’s about time we got one on the east side of town! These paintings are kind of a big deal here.
And just when I thought this run couldn’t get any more scenic, I spotted a mountain of street furniture on 14th and Setliff. Wowzahs.Other eventful news of the week: Anthony and I survived our first babysitting gig! Our friends asked us to watch their kiddo the other night and we got an A+. Note that their son was already asleep when we showed up so basically our only job was to hang out with the cat. Lola LOVED Anthony and it was hilarious.Locals: If you’re looking for a top-rated babysitter, give me a call. As my friend Tracee can tell you, my rate is one pint of Talenti per hour.
When we haven’t been eating ice cream this week, we’ve been enjoying these wraps!We’ve had after-work events the past few nights so I’m glad that Cooksmarts had this simple meal on the menu. Slow-cooked Mediterranean-style chicken wrapped up with arugula, mozzarella, and a homemade balsamic yogurt/mayo spread. Simple tomato and cucumber salad on the side — with a pool of dressing running wild!As for today’s eats, I’m filling up on as many crunchy foods as I can this morning before I embark on ten hours of a liquid diet. TWO more fillings at the dentist coming up — wish me luck!
