Hey, Do You Know Bob?

Just going to do a random update 🙂

Friday was very low-key, and we stayed home.  Saturday I went to a wine restaurant with AC and enjoyed two flights of wine (okay, and maybe 1 or 2 full-sized glasses too!).  I had the Red flight and the Italian flight.  There was only one I didn’t like – and Italian wine that I swear smelled like cat pee.

We munched on hummus and then ordered a light lunch.  Mine got screwed up (had to argue that it really did have cheese on it even though the chef swore she didn’t put it in and said they were walnuts…).  So rated very high on the wines…not so much on the food.

Saturday in the latter part of the afternoon was absorbed in soccer.  I am wickedly pleased to announce that Chelsea beat Bayern!  My team…won their first UCL championship game.  Ever.  So proud!

I went to DC for work Sunday, and was fortunate to spend some time in the city (and I love DC – one of my fav towns!).  I stopped in Richmond on the way to have lunch at Whole Foods and to hit up a 3 day sale at REI and pick D up his sleeping bag, camping cook set, and chair.

I came home late on Monday – talk about a whirlwind trip – but it was a good trip!

This morning I made 3 smoothies.  One blueberry and coconut (which I drank before work), one pineapple and kale, and one avocado and spinach.  I wish I had taken pictures – they were beautiful!

I busted out my pineapple/kale smoothie and proceeded to be mocked by a room full of people.  One of the nurses actually said “hey…do you know so-and-so in such-and-such dept?  She eats healthy too – just like you do.  You two should hang out”.  I was speechless (which doesn’t happen often, trust me).  It’s like saying to someone who lives in a really big city…”Hey…do you know Bob?”, and expecting them to say yes.

I’ll update normally this week now that I’m back in town and managed to get a pretty good night’s sleep last night.  But until then, here are some pictures 🙂

my Whole Foods lunch
Washington National Cathedral. A stunning church, and fun to walk through. Helen Keller is entombed there. And there’s a sculpture of Darth Vader on the Northwest tower. How cool is that? I also took the Gargoyle tour. Too much fun.

my “good morning” picture Monday when D dropped R off at school. Love getting these every day.
tonight’s BAS. Romaine, onion, beet, avocado, cucumber, and tomato with a homemade dressing. Happy end to a raw foods day.

I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
