I hope you had a beautiful weekend! I got to celebrate my birthday again Saturday night with my nearest and dearest! I’ll put up a birthday party recap later on today – but just know there were scorecards, alcohol, singing and um, mustaches. Oh yeah, come on back later to check out the fun.
The rest of my weekend was pretty low-key. Still rolling on my sandwich kick, I enjoyed this beauty for lunch on Saturday (and again for brunch on Sunday; but that was enjoyed at my good friend Nandrea’s house, hey, great minds think alike).
My take on lox & bagel:
1 mini WW pita with 1tbs Tofutti cream cheese, Wild Alaskan smoked salmon, fresh dill, scallions and capers, all sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper. Cukes on the side. Yum.
Get on in there to see the deliciousness.
I also managed to do some shopping (thanks Lord and Taylor!!), cleaning, laundry and gym time. Friday night, I managed a quick 3 mile run (via dreadmill) and 20 minute interval elliptical while watching “Say Yes to the Dress” – why is that show so magical?? Saturday, I pulled it together for an am Spin class; for the first time in a WHILE. It felt good; I forget how spinning works different muscles than running. I finished up that gym time with a 2.25 mile run. Good times.
The last hurrah of my birthday was this beautiful Whole Foods vegan cupcake my friend Nurse brought me. I nibbled on it Sunday while I was re-organizing my life from the weekend. I received some fun “for the blog” birthday presents that you will be seeing put into action soon, so look out for that. I’m lucky to have such fun and thoughtful friends!
A sweet ending to my birthday weekend (ok, birthday weeks :))
