Early office closing + amazing weather = 4.32 mile run (precision thanks to RunKeeper)
And guess what?! NO knee pain. WOO!
Earlier in the weekend a coupon was delivered to my inbox. It informed me that everything was 50% off at the Banana Republic outlet. With my coupon in hand, I headed to the mall and did a little damage – a few pairs of shorts, a few blouses, a few things for Vishnu. My favorite purchase was this peplum top from the Ann Taylor factory store…
Perfect for date night!
After a couple hours of shopping, I drove to Las Olas for an early dinner at Rocco’s Tacos. My friend and old coworker Allison and her mom were vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, so we decided to meet up for a delicious meal and fun conversation. It was great catching up, and I’m already looking forward to our next reunion!
Another day, another reunion. My friend Vijal and her husband Jay were vacationing in South Beach this weekend, so we decided to meet up for lunch. Vijal suggested Yardbird, and I gladly obliged. I’m telling you – this place is a Miami must. Everything is delicious.
My kale salad was unique and surprisingly filling – kale, cheddar, apples, onions, raisins, and cornbread croutons. YUM!
And of course, I made Jay and Vijal order a side of mac n’ cheese!
Yay for friends visiting Miami!
I have no idea what I’m going to do with my day off today. With Vishnu at the library, I foresee a somewhat lazy day ahead of me.
On a serious note, I’d like to thank all of the service men and women (and their families) who put their lives on the line for the sake of protecting our country and it’s people. Thank you for your dedication, your devotion, and your selflessness.
Have a wonderful Monday!
