‘Merica!

Hello,

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.  For starters,  thanks to all who serve (present and past).

A little weekend recap:

For the first time in 8 years, I -Nar, did NOT go to Ocean City Maryland for Memorial Day weekend.  Instead I ventured off with the bf to VA Beach.  It was a such a different feel and in a good way! For once I felt refreshed and relaxed after the weekend. So word of warning, I’m just going to post some pictures to sum up the weekend instead of explaining ever single photo.  How about that?

So there you have it.  Basically my weekend consisted of walks along the beach, home made delicious food, and matching delightful drinks to go with it! 😀

Memorial Day I did a 10 mile run on a trail somewhere in the rockville/silver spring area.  It was pretty flat but I managed to run at an average speed so I was happy!  Not too far off from my race in 2 weeks! 😀

Oh yeah, last but not least–my dinner from last night:

The bf’s parents sent us home with tons of leftovers.  Me being the veggie lover I am, and my bf being the super thoughtful person he is gave me the bag of veggies.  So here’s what in that piled up bowl:

-various lettuce (sour leaf, green leaf, mint leaves)
-red swiss chard
-tomato
-yellow  tomato
-orange bell pepper
-avocado
-ground beef
-1 fried egg
-fresh squeezed lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon
-Olive oil
– salt and pepper to taste

 

That’s all I have for now!  Happy Wednesday!
