Have I mentioned that I love three day weekends? I’ve been having an absolute blast the last couple days, and today is going to be a day of getting work done, relaxing, and preparing for the week ahead. I think we should start a petition requesting that all weekends be three days and the work week only be four. Anyone else with me?
So yesterday morning Eric and I decided to get our lazy butts moving and we went on a little hike behind the state hospital grounds downtown.
I’ve actually never been hiking back there but I’ll definitely be back! There were tons of different trails you could take:
Some of them took you way up high (and gave you a nice workout too!) and some were flatter. It was a sunny morning and the scenery was so pretty.
We also ran into a couple mountain bikers and lots of people had their dogs. I cannot wait until I graduate, move out of the house and can get a dog of my own. We’ll be doing nature hikes on a regular basis .
As I mentioned yesterday, it was also my sister’s birthday. After our hike we got all cleaned up and ready to go out for a late lunch.
She requested to dine at a restaurant that we all absolutely love: Bubba's!
I’ve raved about their amazing veggie burger before, and it definitely did not disappoint this time!
(This meal also made the What I WISH I Ate Wednesday cut with the foods that I would eat if calories didn’t matter)
We ate until we couldn’t eat any more, but somehow we all magically found room for my mom’s homemade cheesecake for dessert .
We only lit two candles so the cake wouldn’t get all waxy.
That would be a homemade praline sauce on top. I die.
This was Courtney’s first birthday in a while that I was actually able to be present for on the actual day. I’m usually gone away at school, so it was nice to be home and I had a lot of fun celebrating with her.
Now I’m off to take advantage of this last day of the weekend. Eric hit the road earlier this morning and now I’ve got a laundry list of things to get done before I head back to my rotation tomorrow. See ya later!
