Countdown

by Meghann on March 13, 2009

Ahhh… less then 10 hours and it will be Triathalon time!!! I’m trying not to freak out, but my nerves are definitely all standing on end. I need to at least try to get some sleep so i need to make this snappy.

This afternoon I snacked on a bag of Chex Mix I got as a sample in the mail.

I was actually surprised by the sample size. Usually the samples are small, but this was a good size bag of chex mix.

It was pretty tasty, but I had to ignore the scary list of ingredients that had words in it I don’t much appreciate in my food.

For dinner I met my parents, siblings, sibling’s significant others and Derek at BJs Restaurant and Brewery for dinner.

I was excited to see my Sister for the first time since Monday. She was still very bruised, but healing up nicely. The bruises on her face are thankfully almost nonexistent! 🙂

But Check out the back of her knee…. Ouch!

My Sister specifically requested we eat here because of the Beer Samplers you can order. We each chose the four beer sampler.

I don’t exactly remembered the four I ordered, but I know I got their Wheat Beer and a Blueberry Wheat Beer that I did not like at all. In fact the whole family had a sample of it then made a funny face.

For starters I ordered the House Salad with Raspberry Vinegarette on the side.

It was a basic, boring salad that I ate about 75% of before passing it along to my Dad.

For dinner I was very excited to order pizza. This place is famous for their deep dish pizza so my Sister and I split a small one.

I hate it when they try to limit your toppings on pizzas, I like to load as many toppings as possible. The menu had the typical for 1 toppings its so and so money then for 2 toppings it was so and so, but then there was a clause for 4 or MORE toppings, this is where I was sold. It was a no holds topping bar in my eyes.

My sister and I ordered everything on the list for vegetable toppings. It was freaking AMAZING.

On the exploding pizza we had White Onions, Artichoke Hearts, Black Olives, Mushrooms, Pineapple, Roasted Garlic, Roasted Peppers, Jalapenos, Fresh Cilantro, Sweet Corn and Fresh Basil. I also asked for light on the cheese… I mean really with all those toppings who needs cheese?!?!

It was GOOD!!!!!

After dinner we were all screaming for Ice Cream, unfortunately there was no location near where we ate and we all had different homes to get back too. Luckily there just happens to be a Marble Slab right down the street from were I live so I casually made a detour on the way.

I ordered a kiddie size Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips.

Just what I needed to help me relax for my Tri tomorrow.

Now its getting hard to type as my shoulders are being rubbed into relaxation mode. My muscles need to be relaxed and prepped for tomorrow.

Its going to be an early wake up call tomorrow.. I can’t wait! Next time I blog I will *hopefully* be an official Tri-Athlete!

Wish Me Luck!!

March 13, 2009

Happy Friday… errr… Friday the 13th! It’s our second Friday the 13th in a row, so I am assuming that we must be extra careful today. Be sure to avoid going under any ladders, opening an umbrella indoors and stay away from black cats and we should all be good. Since Friday the 13th is more »
