We were BIZ-Y today! Thanks to the person who bought 10 loaves of bread for her “hungry family” – and fun to see Kipperly. Sorry I just missed you Blessing!
Fuel for the day: frozen raspberry crumbs, Cville Cluster, milk. YUM!
I left the bakery a little early because I had to go pick up my race packet for tomorrow. I would have gladly paid a few extra dollars to have it mailed to me and save having to drive at 5:00 on a Friday night! The traffic was AWFUL!!
And the parking lot – even worse.
The line – not short.
Thankfully the line did move quickly, and the volunteers were very friendly!
But the parking lot. Ack. Get me outta there. I sat staring at brake lights in front of me – not moving -for TWENTY minutes just to move about 100 yards to get out. Horrible! I could have biked there and back much faster than the 1.5 hours it took me to drive 2 miles, get my stuff, and leave.
- No parking
- Lines of taillights
- Never any wait
- Always a parking spot
But…sweat !! I got back home (I missed Faith’s first two shows ) and raced on my bike to try to get there for her second. I was 10 minutes late after the doors closed.
Inside I snacked on a few McGuffy treats and had a seltzer water with a splash of chardonnay for taste + hydration
Finally, it was showtime!
Faith was beautiful!!
Afterwards, Matt and I went on a nice little date – didn’t want to party too hard because his alarm is set for 3 and mine for 5!!
We went to Escafe where we had a great outdoor meal – including entertainment from the UVA marching band! First football game tomorrow!! Remember when we witnessed this last year!?
Escafe was great – and I had a Restaurant.com coupon to use!
My entrée came with a house salad – a REALLY good house salad with lavender dressing that was amazing and blue cheese + apples
For dinner I had a soba noodle entrée salad – filled with veggies in a light peanut sauce. I gotta remember to make this at home more! With a side of green beans (also included – this was quite a great deal for only $11!!) Matt had the house salad with calamari on top – the one I got last time!
After dinner we went next door to..Sweet Frog!!
Cookies n Cream + Cake Batter with a few crunchy candies
Then we promenaded! Cannot WAIT until we are within walking distance of downtown! Although the cool night bike ride home was quite pleasant.
I’m not planning on racing tomorrow – just going for my normal Saturday morning run with 4,000 other women. No pressure – just fun!!
See you for brunch hour!
