Caitlin's Birthday Celebation

by Meghann on April 26, 2009

It feels so great to finally be back in my own apartment! I missed my bed, my own food and most of all my DVR. I have a weeks worth of recordings to catch up on. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have to admit it did take me a while to finally make the drive from my parent’s house to my apartment on the complete opposite side of Orlando. I took a mini nap on the couch, caught a ride to Target with my Dad, then made a really yummy lunch with left overs in the fridge.

I was really, really craving a smoothie so I made a really yummy one out of Ice, Strawberries, Pineapple, Non- Fat Yogurt, & Peanut Butter.

It really hit the spot and went down much too fast. I would also like to point my Dad bought a thing of strawberries for me yesterday and I killed the entire container all of my own in less then two days. I just love my strawberries. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had also reheated the leftover Tofu from last night and topped it with some BBQ sauce.

And for some greens my Dad had some steamed Brussel Sprouts in the fridge.

I <3 Veggies!!

When I finally did make it home, unloaded my car and did some light grocery store I needed a snack and whipped out the very addicting Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Pretzels.

These are beyond delish, I find it really hard to stick to just one serving. I had to count out my serving, tie the bag back up with out trying one and then pushing it to the very back of the pantry before taking the pretzels to my couch. I figure if I waited to eat them until I was comfy on the couch that I would be to lazy to get up and try to snag more. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In celebration of the wonderful Caitlin’s 25th birthday I met up with her, her Dad, Husband and Friend Harry at Royal Thai for a fabulous dinner. I want to give a big THANK YOU to Caitlin’s Dad for graciously treating us all for the meal.

Of course, Caitlin wanted to dive into presents right away.

It was so easy picking out presents for Caitlin, I just acted like I was shopping for myself and went with there. I think she was pretty happy with the loot!

For food the table started out an order of Spring Rolls

And Pork Dumplings.

I had 1/2 a Spring Roll and 1 Dumpling.

I think dumplings are my favorite asian appetizer and these did not disappoint. Very yummy!

This was my third visit to this restaurant and each time I have got something different, the menu is so huge I just want to try everything. Tonight I ordered the Ga-Ree Dai which was shrimp in yellow curry with potatoes and onion.

This was sooo coconutty and flavorful. Very good. I really loved the coconut curry broth and have some left over to enjoy again tomorrow.

My meal also came with a mini Cucumber Salad on the side.

I politely declined continuing the birthday celebration with the gang as I still had to unpack at home. But I do wish Caitlin a very Happy Birthday! 25 is going to be another good year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I did get home I wanted chocolate so I had a piece of the Dark Chocolate Bunny from Easter.

I only have one piece left! This bunny has been very good to me.

But now I really do need to go unpack. I can’t believe I have to go back to real work tomorrow... boooo….

Good Night Everyone!!

Fighting the Jet Lag

April 26, 2009

Running 15 miles the day after I returned from Long Beach seemed like a great idea when I was planning out my training runs, but this morning when the alarm went off at 6:30 I just was not feeling it. Even though I passed out last night at 10:00 and got well over 8 hours more ยป
