First up: Did you enter my Music Giveaway? If you didn’t, remember that a kitten dies every time you think about entering but don’t. Save the kittens.
I just got back from our weekend in Miami, and I am worn out. Also, I’m behind on reading about 27 million blog posts. I guess the blog world doesn’t stop when I go out of town like I thought it did. If I commented on your blog this weekend, it was before I realized how annoying it is to comment on a blog from your phone.
Anyway, before I get into that whole Miami thing, I wanted to tell you about last Thursday.
My friend (and old roommate) Danielle was in town on business, so we decided a group of us would meet up for dinner and drinks. Danielle moved to South Carolina (from Orlando) about 6 years ago and I’ve only seen her once since she moved.
Here’s some old school goodness of Danielle and I in some random bar. Random bars = our home away from home.
Danielle and I met at work, which is also where I met Michelle, Melissa, and my hubs. Got all those names down? Work with me and you score good friends and husbands! If you are on the look out for more good friends and husbands that is.
Here’s a few pics from Danielle’s last visit.
The hubs and I met Danielle, Michelle, and Melissa at Bar Louie on Sand Lake Road.
Bar Louie is where Michelle, her hubby Dan, and I had our pre-race dinner before the Gasparilla Half Marathon. We loved it in Tampa, so we were happy to find out the place is a chain and there was one by us in Orlando.
We started off with a few drinks including a skinny mojito. The mojito never had a chance sitting in front of me. So, no picture of that.
There is an uncomfortable picture of me eating an orange. Who’s up for seeing that?!
I had the Thai Cobb Salad with a grilled Portobello on top.
I probably should have gotten chicken instead of just putting more veggies on my veggies. It was still good, I mean…I’ll eat anything pretty much. Even if it sucks.
Hubs got the Voodoo Chicken with the sauce on the side which was crazy good. I’ll be getting this next time if I have the strength not to order one of their awesome burgers.
Who puts THAT much sauce on the side? Trough of sauce? Well, ok!
We had an awesome time hanging out and chatting. I forget how much I miss spending time with someone when they’re away for so long, until I see them again. (Miss you, D!)
Michelle and I are always running so many races, it was fun hanging out with her, having a few drinks, and not having to worry about a race the next morning. Plus, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen Melissa, so it worked out altogether.
I think Bar Louie is my new favorite spot. The food is so good and I love the atmosphere. Plus, they have “Skinny” mojitos and margaritas so I can only dive half way into a pit of despair the next day when I add up all the calories I consumed. Well, it’s time for me and the hubs to pick up the bunny from grandma and grandpas. We missed her!
How was your weekend? Did the kitty picture guilt you into entering my giveaway?
