Hey guys! I hope everyone’s having a Wonderful Wednesday. Here in Charleston, it’s more like a wet Wednesday because we’ve gotten lots of rain this week. I’m still catching up, so my Wednesday is more of a weekend update with some details from last week thrown in.
Last week, Erin and I went out for Japanese food because she hadn’t had it in a long time and I love going to lunch with friends- trust me, it takes on a whole new meaning when you work from home and want interaction. We went to Nakato Japanese Steak House and it was pretty good; even though it was lunch, we got large portions and left stuffed with takeout boxes of leftovers. I had the hibachi veggies and fried rice, she had the teriyaki chicken, and we took a picture.
Speaking of food, I’ve had Japanese, Korean, and Greek food in the past week… I guess all the ethnic food goes along with the Summer Olympics going on, huh? Maybe I should try to get Mexican, Indian, or Thai food in while I’m at it.
This weekend, we had Clay’s family over to visit and bring us a few things that we stored at their house when we moved (Christmas decor!). They were on their way to the cruise port to get on the Carnival Fantasy for a fun week at sea- I see the exit sign for the port whenever I head to Mt. Pleasant to run and get a little jealous, but I know they’re having a great time. Before they went to the port, we all went out for breakfast to catch up on things since it was their first time visiting us at our new home. Clay took them to the port, and I got things ready for his Dungeons and Dragons game party (hosting gaming gatherings at your house is hard work- I made two kinds of cookies and dips, so I didn’t take any pictures), and we had friends over to watch the UFC fights that night. Here are some pictures:
Needless to say, I crashed Saturday night. Between an 8 mile run on Isle of Palms (the half marathon training plan called for 6, but another lady and I ran 4 before we realized we should turn around), having Clay’s parents over, hosting the D&D party, then having friends over to watch the fights, I was exhausted! I spent most of Sunday resting, aside from a 5 mile run on the West Ashley Greenway and brunch. It was one of the busiest but most fun weekends I’ve had in awhile.
