1, 2, 3 Things for Thursday

1. This weekend is Mike and I are celebrating our 11th Wedding Anniversary.  Last year we got away for a rare weekend in Lake Placid, but this year we're staying local, but going out for dinner.  Although that sounds easier than it is.  Thanks to my Mom in Law, we have someone to watch the kids, but finding somewhere to eat, not so much.  I wanted to use a gift card we have to a restaurant in Skaneatles, but there's a Wine Festival going on, so they're booked. And of course it's Parent's Weekend at Syracuse University, so everywhere is Syracuse that we would want to go is booked, but luckily we scored a reservation at a Thai place that is fabulous.  I can make due with crowds of students and their families, as long as I get my dirty martini and tuna tartare.

2. Yesterday was my morning to run outside, and of course it rained, so I treadmilled it.  I went much slower than Monday, hammy is tight, so I babied it a bit.  I made it 5.3 miles before I called it quits, after watching the new episode of Parenthood on the DVR.  I don't know why I watch that show, it's not that great. Now Survivor on the other hand, is already really good.  Although I could do without the shots of Jimmy Johnson's Man Boobs.

3. I'm reining in my eating this week, getting back on the healthy track.  I made some great angel hair pasta with leftovers I found in the fridge, sauteed onions, and mushroom and roasted broccoli I had used in a quiche.  I just added some sauce and Parmesan cheese, and it was the perfect lunch.  Now if I could only stay away from the Snowcaps my friend Dawn gave me....were these always dark chocolate???? They're goooood.

Happy Anniversary!

I tried to watch parenthood, but it was too painful....I guess I get enough parenting drama in my everyday life to want to watch more. And I'm totally with you on Jimmy Johnson's moobs.

Happy anniversary. Don't forget you just ran a marathon, so these couple of weeks are all about running when/how far you feel like it and kicking back. A few snowcaps is good for recovery, right?

I saw the original "Parenthood" movie before I had kids. I watched about 10 minutes of the TV show once (I think trapped on a treadmill) and the whole premise is not so funny anymore to me, and the TV show just seems like a re-make.

Survivor is CRAZY this season!! Well, maybe not the whole thing, but a couple of those people are nuts! It will be interesting to see what happens next week!

I asked myself the same thing about Parenthood this week - too predictable and unrealistic. I want it to be better than it is. Your lunch looks yummy!

Cool that you got to have a nice dinner for your anniversary. So much talk about food in this post, I should have eaten more dinner.

Not sure if you have a plan for ongoing hammy maintenance, but after messing up mine a few years back, I added light hammy strength training and daily stretching. Might help.
