Hello and happy Friday! This week was a busy one — I just realized that a bunch of random things have happened that I never even shared with you guys. Here’s a roundup of things we missed:
1. I was in US Weekly magazine! Well, my Instagram handle was, at least. That was a fun surprise. Thanks to Calia by Carrie Underwood for the shout out. I wish I looked as cute as Carrie when I ran… but let’s face it, there’s no way a hood would stick so perfectly in place on my odd-shaped, sweaty head. 2. I ate one of Nashville’s best salads. Remember when I made a list of DC’s best salads? I think I might need to start one for Nashville. Epice’s “Epice Salad” with salmon will be #1. 3. I have a 22-miler coming up tomorrow (bleeeerrrggghhhhhh) and this handheld water bottle from Ultimate Direction is going to come in “handy.” I actually already own one “Handy 10” water bottle but getting a fancy new one — with the sweetest hand-written note! — made my day. 4. I made a rainbow dinner. This Cooks Smarts dish is pretty, isn’t it? I can’t say that this was one of my favorite recipes, but it sure looked good! Plus it was fun to try pre-cooked polenta slices. I think I prefer plain old mushy polenta, though 5. Anthony comes home today! If you’re wondering why my table looks so lonely, it’s because my dinner date/bartender/husband has been out of town all week. Excited to have him back.
Is it cocktail hour yet?
