So, I turned 26 on Saturday, and I had a pretty awesome birthday weekend, even if it wasn’t your typical birthday celebration.
Of course, campus is about a 30 minute drive for me- hence the early wake-up call, but it was an awesome run. Only about 33 people did the race, but I really enjoyed running around my college campus and thinking of all the great times I had there. I miss college so much sometimes!
I also came in first place female overall. It wasn’t my best time ever, and not that many people did the race, but I was still pretty stoked about it.
I came home and cleaned up, then went to Firehouse subs to pick up lunch for Clay and I. We watched the South Carolina vs. Kentucky game, and Carolina beat Kentucky 54-3! Talk about a blowout… yeah I know, “It was Kentucky”, but it was a really awesome comeback after our loss last week and a great first game for our quarterback Connor Shaw. Really hope we can keep our momentum for the rest of the season.
After the game, we did some house work like laundry and vacuuming, and we hung my painting from my last class at Painting Chameleon.
I also made some amazing pumpkin spice white chocolate chip cookies that I saw on Tina’s blog, Faith Fitness Fun. Easiest cookies ever- 16 oz. pumpkin, 1 box spice cake mix, and 3/4 bag of white chocolate chips. They have a nice cake texture and I like that, plus they made the entire apartment smell like Fall :).
Oh, and I got 10 hours of sleep Saturday night. After a week of 9-10 hour days at work and craptastic sleeping habits, I really needed the rest!
On Sunday, Clay and I went to Chutnee for Indian food with his sister Jelenna. Chutnee has a lunch buffet that has lots of different Indian dishes, all of which I really loved. There were 4-5 vegetarian dishes and a lot of meat dishes too. We really love Indian food so we sampled everything and especially liked the Chai tea and dessert. I can’t wait to go back to Chutnee- it’s becoming one of my favorite places to eat.
I’d so rather have Indian food for my birthday than the typical cake and ice cream, anyway ;). Who wouldn’t?
Clay’s parents and sister got me a Keurig for my birthday too! I’ve only used it once, but I’m looking forward to lots of cups of coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea this winter! It also makes iced tea and iced coffee which is interesting. It came with 5 K-cups, but I have a feeling I’ll be buying more VERY soon.
Q: Have you ever tried Indian food? If not, what’s your favorite ethnic food?
Q: If you have a Keurig, what’s your favorite K-cup or type of coffee? Looking for recommendations here!
