Humpday has arrived again! Time is flying and I cannot believe we are already a third of the way through May. My brain still thinks it is March! Geeze. Is anyone out there with me? Summer is basically here and I feel like the next time I blink it will suddenly be Christmas. Alas, I can't slow time, so instead I'll just enjoy it!
I got to see my friend Abbott last night for our regular sushi and fro yo friend-date. We try and get together at least once a month if not more frequently and it never fails that we pick sushi and fro yo. It is always good to sit and chat with Abbott. We are close friends from college and she is one of the most fun, caring, friendly, funny and genuine people I know. I feel so blessed to have her as a friend. (Abs, are you blushing yet?)
They sat us at a romantic two-seater at the sushi restaurant, so we thought it was only fitting to share at least one sushi roll and confuse the waitress. We stuffed our faces with sushi, ginger salads and edamame. By the way, I could drink ginger dressing. It is so delicious. What do they put in that stuff? I'm totally over soy sauce. I order ginger salads just so I can dip my sushi and edamame in ginger dressing. True story.
I don't really even know what we talked about... gossipy things and nerdy things like reading surely but it was a great time. Post-sushi, we headed over to fro-yo and both got thin mint and cake batter flavors. This time my fro-yo was only $2.56! I couldn't believe it. I think it was because I only got yogurt and no toppings. Apparently the fruit is weighing me down!
We sat outside and enjoyed our yogurt al fresco. The weather was great and it was nice to just sit and chat with a girlfriend. Overall, a lovely evening!
I had big plans to get up and run five miles this morning but I got sucked into catching up on American Idol and didn't go to bed until 11:30. I may get the miles in tonight if my parents are down to go to the mountain, but definitely want to get up early tomorrow and exercise again either way. I may hit up a cycle class at the gym to mix things up. Part of me is glad my workout regime is not so strict anymore, but part of me misses the structure and feeling that I am working toward a goal. It was motivating and helped me stick to exercise much better than I ever have in the past.
Okay, I feel like I'm blabbering a bit and that makes me feel awkward so I'm going to head back to my turkey-munster-spinach-and-ranch kaiser roll and call it a day. After work, I'm heading to my parents' house for the evening and am really looking forward to some quality family time!
What are you looking forward to right now?
When is the last time you spent quality time with your family?
