Birthday Dinner

Missing the group run was totally worth the dinner we had tonight.  Lindsey and I each had a glass of Riesling, both of us fans of sweet wine.  Casey ordered the special order of oysters for $8.95 and we hit the jackpot.  The waitress said we would probably get about a dozen but this is what showed up…

Clay, Casey and I probably each had a dozen, it was awesome.  Then I tried to make good choices had a salad with lobster, crab, shrimp, clams and white beans and a cup of clam soup.  I think I could eat endless amounts of seafood honestly.

We decided that we are going to go to the festival of lights in charleston sometime soon which I am so excited about.  I love Christmas so much and this is about as Christmasy as it gets.  We went with them last year and it was a blast.  You drive through three miles of christmas lights displays with music and everything.  Then at the end there is a store and marshmallow roasting and other goodies.  The best part is, we can take the dogs!

We also decided we are going to rent a house in Edisto (about 30 minutes away) in May hopefully (while I am on break from school) and go for a long weekend to hang out at the beach, have bon fires and just have a relaxing time.  I already can’t wait and it is months away, it just sounds like such a nice retreat!

The whole dinner was just so fun.  There is nothing better than a good night with great friends!

Happy Birthday Lindsey!

Happy Birthday Lindsey!

Having a Puppy

Next time someone asks me how to lose weight, I’m going to tell them to go get a puppy.  I probably walked 3 miles (this is not an exaggeration at all) that I wouldn’t have walked today taking her out and getting her energy out.

We took a ride in the car…

Her ears are already starting to stand up!  Later we went to the park for like three hours and made all sorts of new friends.  She loves being outside and just being out there she is so much calmer and better behaved.

She even let me finish my final paper for my research class and start studying for my imaging final which was way more than I had hoped for.  So all in all we had a fun and productive day!

I had planned to make it to the running group tonight but it is my friend Lindsey’s birthday today so we are going to dinner at Pearlz (yummy seafood!!).  Today was supposed to be a rest or swim day anyway and after my intervals yesterday my legs appreciated the rest.  I missed the group but I know it will be better for my legs to just wait and go tomorrow.

Off today dinner…happy hump day!
