Morning, friends! I loved all your stories about getting caught in the rain in the comments of my last post! There were some pretty funny ones. :)

Who else is pumped that it’s FRIDAY?!!? Hooray for sleeping in tomorrow! Last night, I met up with my friend Sokphal for an evening run after work — 4.15 miles, check — they were hilly and hard but it felt good to get out there in the fresh air!


I busted out my MOTOACTV watch again and I’m still really liking it. Very user friendly! I set up some auto-settings — auto lap to track my splits (although I wish it beeped every mile and popped up with my pace like the Garmin does), auto start so that when I start running the workout automatically gets started, auto stop so that if I stop at a light, it stops too, etc. Pretty sweet! No music since I was chatting away, of course.

After the run, I showered and rushed back out to head over to my friend Beth’s place for a potluck with some of my girlfriends!



Yay! It was fun to catch up with everyone. Disregard the awkward underneath self timer photo. ;)

Beth decided on a BBQ theme and made ribs for us all:


Plus mashed potatoes, which I apparently forgot to photograph. Others brought corn bread:


Corn on the cob:


And my contribution was salad!


I brought a big mixed greens salad topped with sliced almonds, beets, and goat cheese. Simple and delicious! Dressed with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette I made by mixing equal parts olive oil and balsamic vinegar, plus a couple squirts of Dijon mustard.


Yum! I also went back for some mashed potatoes after I took this picture. :)


I was too distracted by conversation to take pictures of dessert, but we had Haagen Dazs ice cream. Mint chip for me — SO good. Thanks for hosting us, Beth! We need to do that more often. :)

Off to the hospital to finish out the end of my second week at my dietetic internship!


  1. 1

    When you use beets in salads do you use sliced, canned ones or do you roast your own? I tried that once and it was just so messy.
