Today is my birthday. A lot has happened in the past few days, so I will try and recap. My mom and I have birthdays that are only five days apart. To celebrate we had some one on one time in Charleston which was awesome! We went spice shopping because there is a great spice and tea shop as well as spices for sale within the actual market. Picures and shout-outs are at the end.
I have been working out really regularly and feeling really good about it. I won’t recap my workouts, because I have forgotten them mainly :). I am now starting to slow down my workouts in preparation for the pentathlon on Saturday. I am interestingly indifferent about it, but that will change when I get to the venue.
My mom loves the granola bars, so I have been making those lately. But sadly, a lot of eating out has been going on. I have a few pictures to show, but nothing truly spectacular that I have made.
Last night we saw “Julie and Julia.” I love Julia Childs and this movie made me love her a little more. It was also interesting hearing the dialogue between Julie and her husband about blogging, because I feel like that a lot. I did have to look away several times, particularly with the lobster and duck parts. The movie is really good even if you don’t like cooking just because Julia’s personality and outlook on life.
Onto the pictures:
