What a fun Saturday!
After a rather wet walk with Sadie this morning, Ryan and I drove to Gainesville to run some errands. My stomach started grumbling within an hour of our arrival and when I saw a Subway, I told Ryan to pull in because a sub with lots of veggies sounded perfect.
I got a ham sub with all the veggies except jalapeños.
Enjoyed with my handsome date!
We spent a few hours driving around Gainesville before making our way home. We were home for maybe an hour before we turned around and headed back out to meet up with our friends Terry and Janelle for dinner at Horse & Hounds.
Terry was actually a groomsman in our wedding and was driving through Ocala en route to Port Canaveral with his girlfriend Janelle because they’re leaving on a cruise tomorrow!
We were excited to plan a dinner date with them since we last saw them about a year ago in their hometown of Atlanta for an awesome dinner at Two Urban Licks. It was great to catch up this evening after so much time apart!
Horse & Hounds seems to attract a lot of the horse folks in Ocala, so the TVs had the Belmont Stakes on while we were there which was fun. (Neither Ryan nor I picked the winning horse this time. Ryan’s winning horse from the Kentucky Derby, I’ll Have Another, was supposed to race again today but was retired from racing because of tendinitis in his left front leg.)
Our meal began with warm rolls and I picked a whole wheat roll to snack on before my entrée came out.
For my main meal, I selected the turkey and candied walnut salad, served with feta cheese and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
They were very generous with the toppings! I loved all the walnuts and feta cheese.
I also shared some of Ryan’s Reuben sandwich and fries which were delicious as well.
Once we had to say goodbye to Terry and Janelle, Ryan wanted to swing by Gander Mountain to pick up a new heavy ball for Sadie since her best ball got run over by a lawn mower a couple of weeks ago. Her tennis balls don’t throw nearly as far as the heavy weight balls made to go with the Chuckit ball launcher.
And this would be the picture I got of Ryan when I asked him to hold up the balls for me to take a picture of for the blog…
Note the placement of the balls and the mischievous look. Typical.
Gander Mountain was a little low on staff today, so we wasted time in line by looking at the snacks.
There were some yummy snacks…
And then there was the world’s worst Halloween candy…
Say no to Bit-O-Honey! Ahhh!
Since we spent the day running around, I’m ready for a nice evening at home. I already have my pajamas on and it’s not even 8 p.m., which means a lazy night is a sure-thing in this house!
Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend!
