Today I have been alcohol free for 2 years.
Happy Anniversary to me!
2009 was a great year! I did SO many unique and fun things:
Created new habits and.....
Met wonderful new people in my life & in the blog world-if your reading this, that means you- THANK YOU!
On to the party!!!
It was nice and low key, there was a lot of great food and fun people!
Adam is always the host with the most!
He made sure to have a bunch of sparkling apple juice on
hand for those not tipping 'em back!
We loved the slogan: "It's time to sparkle" but by the end of the
night thought it should be:
"Get your sparkle on!"
All the food was so good!
I had about two of everything, and a BUNCH of the strawberries dipped in
milk, dark and white chocolate!
The girls! New friends and old friends!
Walking the 8 blocks home at 1 in the morning wasn't that
bad when you do formal Minnesota style!
Silver skirt and white Sorels-- it's POLAR Chic!
TODAY was my first race of 2010!
Pre-race breakfast and food included:
Whole wheat english muffin toasted and with Almond butter, and an Amazing meal from Amazing Grass!
Post race food was thr basic food they pass out : banana & Chips
And a Cascade Farms Fiber Right bar!
I had a Starbucks coffee post haste after the race
and a big salad when I got home. It contained:
and grilled yellow squash with basil!
I was thinking of all the spices people named in my current giveaway comments and chose basil! I added Drews Rosemary balsamic dressing and it was DELICIOUS! I could have had two!!
I will do an OFFICIAL Race recap in the next few days, but I am excited to say that my time totally surprised me and I am SO happy about it! It may actually be a PR for my 10 K time. I spent a lot of years running races, but not blogging or tracking them.
Here I am warm and happy in the car with my medal. It was well earned today!
Have a wonderful night and New Year!
