Shenanigans, Horses, and Awesome Friends

FOOD

Been a combo of quick eats and meals out and some travel.

Smoothies of course, and seem to be vacillating from chocolate to vanilla depending on my mood!

Also whipped up a batch of banana chocolate chip muffins with some overly ripe bananas.

Simple pasta dish with Beyond Meat crumbles and marinara. Fast and always a quick crowd pleaser.

Salads! Again lazy by topping it with a Boca vegan burger, but whatever. Don’t judge. It was balanced 🙂

Tofu green curry (duh)

Vegan enchiladas (another dining out for life meal event).

Cauliflower steak.

And this, my friends, is a paffle! A spot in Charlottesville that makes sammiches out of puff pastry-turned-waffle. Mine is a gf vegan one stuffed with tofu scramble!

Lunch in Richmond with H – these delightful things called “garden balls” and a rice noodle and tofu sesame dish too.

FITNESS

Runs and strength training workouts!

LIFE

Well, been great and busy! Last weekend was theme park fun! The week was crazy – couple nights out and then a weekend away for my grad school reunion weekend. I’m telling you, nothing like hanging out with 20+ of your friends! Many came from out of state just to be here.

We arrived Friday morning, had sessions and catching up with friends and professors, then a cocktail reception and a class party at a local brewery.

The second day was at the Foxfield horse races, which was amazing. We had a private chalet, food, open bar, etc. Then all of us went to dinner on the downtown mall. It was hard to say goodbye to everyone – but thankfully we do a good job of keeping in touch and getting together regularly when we can.

Sunday, after wrapping up, went to Richmond to have lunch with my girlfriend H, then home! I was supposed to go see Infinity War with the kids (bought tix way early), but wasn’t feeling too hot and had school stuff to wrap up, so they went, had a blast, and I’ll hopefully go in the next week or so.

And of course, fun pics of fluffy ones!

Ginny just happy I brought my suitcase home for her!

I am a 44 yo busy career single mom, attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free(ish) vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
