Hello!! How's it going? What is your favorite part of the month? How long did you run? How much did you eat? Why do I ask so many questions? Maybe because I need a friend?
Anyway. Let's talk about what I ate this weekend and the best of November!
Firstly, this weekend I participated in the semi-marathon "Reindeer Ignition". This is at riverside. Santa is there. Resume soon.
What I ate this weekend – or at least the main points …
Friday night – I went on a date. With a guy I see regularly. We had Thai food – this is my favorite.
And we tried a new dish that the restaurant is famous for – fried eggplant with chicken.
Happy night dessert – here forever.
Saturday fun …
We went to the Big Park in Orange County. This is a large park in the south of the state of California that I haven’t explored yet – until recently. I ran there once, and this was my second visit.
We wanted to get up in a balloon, but it was closed due to the wind.
I always see this HUGE orange balloon in the sky, as I live my little life (read: I'm going to run or go to Costco for pizza). I do not know whether he is considered a real balloon, because he does not go anywhere – just up and down. If I ever get up into this, I will share more.
On the way home, I saw a sign that reads about some open construction sites that insisted that we stop.
I love to look at new home construction! They are beautifully furnished and smell fashionable. I wanted to talk about the tour in history, but in the end I captured my reaction with wide eyes. Ha!
After half marathon on Sunday …
I went to see my brother, sil and nieces. We went to church and then had lunch. There was also coffee in their church, a lot of pastries and treats! God is good.
Important note –
I was very excited about where Coke Zero was. I love Coke Zero. I can't drink diet cola anymore!
And every time I go to a restaurant, I ask: “Do you have Coke Zero?”, And in 89% of cases they are not, and I just ask for water or tea.
I think my BF seems to be very bad (oh, he probably thinks dietary soda is bad for me), but I would rather die early and happily drink poison than deprive myself of happiness and be complacent. And I will continue to ask, even if it seems that they have a chance of 1 to 10, because it makes me so happy.
And finally, I had a cookie, like on my winning lap / after the race. I love cookies. And ice cream. A cake is a chocolate cake. (I'm hungry)
Oh – and this is National Cookie Day !! Do you have any cookies today?
Ahhh !! It's hard because I ran the half-marathon in Rock and Roll in Las Vegas, and it's so fun to run along the Strip !!
Then I ran the Lexus Lace Up Palos Verdes Half Marathon – it's so gorgeous right on the coast!
I say this is a tie.
Rock and Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon
Lace Up Palos Verdes Half Marathon –
I was going to repeat this on a podcast, and now I have half of Riverside to summarize as well! So soon. But in my Instagram post there is a mini resume, and I thanked the other IG runners.
4 Ingredients Baked Brie Recipe
This is my new favorite thing !! It is so good and so simple!
I think Minimalist Christmas wish list is very useful.
And with half the summary of Vegas, I shared – What to eat for the race at the end of the day video
