Last night I met up with some girlfriends for dinner to say a sad farewell to our friend Merri who is moving to New York on Monday.
I’m going to miss her smiling face and bubbly personality so much. A trip to New York must happen soon!
We met up for happy hour at Shari, a sushi restaurant in downtown Orlando before walking to Dexter’s in Thornton Park for dinner.
I ordered a spinach salad, served with gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, red onion, apple and grapes. It was fresh and crisp and I ate every last bite!
Though Ryan and I planned to hit the gym right away this morning, we both awoke feeling less than motivated and decided to take it easy and workout later today.
I made us fruity, creamy smoothies for breakfast to sip while lazily hanging out on the couch.
In the mix (for one smoothie):
- 1 1/4 c. milk
- 3/4 c. frozen strawberries
- 1/2 c. frozen pineapple
- 1 c. strawberry banana Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp. strawberry cream cheese
- 1/2 c. cottage cheese
I was feeling a little adventurous with my smoothie making this morning, so I threw cottage cheese and strawberry cream cheese into the mix and hoped for the best! Fortunately the end result was an almost cheesecake-like flavor!
With cold smoothies in our bellies, Ryan and I leashed up Sadie for a walk around the lake near our apartment. Even though it wasn’t quite 9 a.m. yet, the heat in the air was intense! It’s supposed to be in the 90s in Orlando today. Phew! I’m hoping to get in an hour or so of pool time to beat the heat.
Lots of stuff on the to-do list for today! First up: Crafting!
