Another fun day is half over. Larbs and I went running (and rollerblading!) along the river this morning. She has knee trouble so she skated while I ran. I did a slow jog so we could talk and because I was feeling the effects of a late night and alcohol. I am never my best after those nights. We think we did about 5 miles total – I ran for just over an hour!
After showers, we set out for Newbury Street. I loved looking at all of the clothes and boutiques, but I permit myself to buy anything 🙁 Newbury is covered with darling outdoor cafes, all with scrumptious menus. Larbs and I choose Scoozi for its wide variety of salads and the available outdoor table. Larbs says she sees people drinking at all hours of the day – wine at 11 am, beers at 3pm, etc. but she never orders any. I wasn’t really in a wine mood, but then I remembered that this time next week I’ll be sitting in class, so we should order a glass as one last celebration.
For lunch I ordered a Mixed Greens Salad with Goat Cheese, Pecans, Shrimp Scampi, tomatoes and a fabulous Citrus Dressing! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect salad!
The shrimp were perfectly cooked!
After more browsing, we came back to our starting point: JP Licks! Everyone has been raving about it so I had to give it a try. WOW!! I had Oatmeal Cookie (of course I had to get the oatmeal one ) and Peanut Butter hard frozen yogurt. It was fabulous! No idea on the nutritional info, but I’m sure the fact that it’s frozen yogurt means it’s at least lighter than a comparable ice cream version in fat and calories.
I shared about 25% (a lot of my PB flavor) with Larbs, as I didn’t want to be too full for dinner. (She got Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oatmeal Raisin).
We’re putting our feet up for a little bit before we head back out for the KERF Dinner. Can’t wait to meet some of you all!!
