Cookie Cake!!

by Meghann on May 9, 2009

If you had run 20 miles before 10am how would you spend the rest of your day?


I thought so. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Laying by the pool was exactly all I wanted to do this afternoon. However it was hot as balls outside so we only lasted an hour before heat stroke set in and we moved back into the AC.

After a nice cooling shower, I was ready for a great lunch.


I stuffed a Whole Wheat Pita with Annie’s BBQ Sauce, WIldWood Smoked Tofu, Spinach & Tomatoes.


This was light and refreshing, the perfect compliment to the hot humid air outside.

I also couldn’t help but treat myself to a serving of TJ’s Peanut Butter Pretzels.


And some nice crispy carrots with WildWood Indian Spiced Hummus to go along with it.


I had no problem being lazy around the apartment after lunch and watching a wonerful tearful Lifetime Movie about Natalee Holloway. It was a movie that tugs at your heart, especially since the whole story is still so fresh in my mind.

We were meeting my family in the Mall of Millenia area for dinner, so after the movie we decided to head out a little early and explore the mall.

Before we left the apartment I had one of Ashley’s Homemade Granola Bars.


Derek was craving Starbucks so we made a Beeline to the fine drinking establishment as soon as we entered the Mall.

I ordered an Unsweet Green Iced Tea and was pleasantly surprised to see the girl almost spelled my name right. This is as close as anyone ever gets.


This is what Derek ordered.


Derek reminded me that he had rollerbladed 8 miles this morning and deserved a treat… lol….. I told him to enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We shopped and I picked up some cute new things from Crate & Barrel. My hunger started to creep up while we were in the mall so I pulled out an emergency bag of Annie’s Bunny Fruit Snacks to hold me over to dinner.


Yummy Gummies, unfortunately these did zilch for my hunger. Luckily we ran into my family a little after this and my Sis gave me a nice bag of Saltwater Taffy she had picked up for me in Savannah.


I promptly enjoyed a Praline piece. Yum!

Tonight the whole family(+friends) was able to come together to celebrate Kelly’s 22nd birthday.


She was very happy to see the cookie cake we had picked up for her this morning!

On Kelly’s request we went to one of her favorite pizza places: BJs.


I was very excited to order a beer as soon as we were seated.


I don’t remember what this was called. I thought it was a wheat beer, but apparently not. It was good, just not what I was expecting.

I started out my meal with a small House Salad with Raspberry Walnut Vinegarette Dressing on the side.


Then for the main part I had a Mini Pizza with Anchovies, Onion, Mushrooms, Black Olives, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Roasted Garlic, Light on the Cheese and No butter on the Crust.


There was suppose to be Basil and I am really sad they left it off. I was also hoping for more of a fishy taste from the anchovies, but I couldn’t taste it at all. Honestly, not the best pizza I have ever had. I did like the mini size of it.

Finally it was time for what I had been waiting all day for…. COOKIE CAKE!!


We all sang happy birthday and Kelly blew out her 2 candles that represented 22.

I made sure to have my well earned full piece.


And then went back for a couple more bites. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Man, I LOVE cookie cake! All I have to say is Thank God this not go home with me!

I am STUFFED right now and about to fall sleep on my keyboard. Thank you everyone for all your kind words about my 20 mile run this morning. It truly was a great milestone I will cherish the memory of for years to come.

Tomorrow I am heading to the parent’s for a Mother’s Day Brunch and a day filled of Mommy activities. Don’t forget to tell your Mom how much you love them tomorrow!

Good night everyone!!
