This is one of those afternoon –> evening posts with many different segments! I went from walking to appointment to cooking to napping to dining to walking to partying to sugaring all in a matter of hours : ) I’m glad I didn’t do a formal workout today because I think I covered about 4 miles total just walking downtown and back twice!
A visit to the library (now have a bunch of kindle books on request – I think I’m #95 in the waiting list for Gone Girl!?)
Also got my hair cut!! Just a trim.
Came home and made Anne P’s granola bars with the brown rice cereal I picked up this AM. Love that these require no baking : ) Ate one for a snack and also licked the bowl! Now I think I owe all of you $100 after that bet I made Don’t think I can afford that!
*** Interlude for a 20 minute power nap, which really helped me power through tonight! ***
Matt and I planned a simple dinner before going out: salads with dates, goat cheese, tomatoes and egg on top.
Some of us were very casual about our presentation
We headed to Fridays After Five where we talked with friends for a while!
Next stop: The Best of C-ville Party!
C-Ville [our cool local newspaper] throws a big annual party when its Best of Cville awards come out and invites all of its advertisers, nominees and winners of the awards. Great Harvest was so honored to be nominated in the Best Bakery category this year!!
The party was packed with people and the arena was decked out in Olympic-themed décor.
There wasn’t much in the area of food (why we ate before) but there was tons of alcohol! Sadly we waited in line for 20 minutes for drinks to find out that the bar had nothing non alcoholic. Luckily I found a water fountain! [Most unflattering photo ever…]
[And then finally I found a bottle of water at another station. ]
I ran into these lovely blog readers!! Hi gals!
After chatting around with some friends and contacts we knew [we must have seen 25 people we knew tonight!], we decided it would be the perfect evening to go over to Paradox for dessert!
I’ve been thinking about this layer cake all week long : )
The slice was HUGE and for maybe the first time in my life, I left delicious cake uneaten. Tear! Neither one of us could fit another bite. But it was an amazing cake full of frosting, nuts and coconut!
