Good Morning! How was your Valentine’s Day weekend everyone?! Mine turned out beautiful and you’ll see why shortly.
I headed up to Starkville on Friday after work and had a pretty low-key evening watching Friends, which has become a pretty typical day in my life! I’m pretty sure this is my all-time favorite TV show that never gets old. I can play it in the background for hours & days & weeks & months… seriously, never gets old!
Saturday morning, I woke up and went to Starbucks with my sisters. We had a few hours of conversation and of course delicious coffee! Nick and I ordered the Engine 2 Diet book and My Beef with Meat by Rip Esselstyne, so I started reading while we were at Starbucks also.
After we finished up, I picked Nick up so we could have lunch with a good friend of mine. We ate Mexican and I was able to meet her precious little baby boy! He was the sweetest thing! Pretty sure I’m in love with the 5-7 month age because I was head over heels for this little guy and I feel the exact same way with Nick’s nephew who is around that age.
After lunch we headed out to the baseball game and the weather was perfect on Saturday! State played well and although there was another game at 4:00, we didn’t stay for the game to start. Since Nick is doing my marathon next weekend, he wanted to go for a run, so we headed out to North Farm. I started out running a little bit here and there, but eventually my knee gave me more trouble, so I ended up walking the rest of our time out there. I need to go buy new shoes and see if they make a difference. I feel like I’ve tried so many other things and I’m still stuck with this knee pain, that getting new shoes is the next step. I’ll report back!
North Farm turned out to be absolutely beautiful on Saturday as the sun was setting!
Mississippi State University has a lot of land and we’re a big agriculture school. We have some farm land that has a great gravel road that surrounds it. The total circle comes close to 4 miles so you can get a fairly good run in. As the sun was setting, I couldn’t help but snap some beautiful pictures of our Valentine’s Day activities! Nick was running up ahead of me, so we didn’t get a picture of the two us together.
That evening, we hung out with my sister, made spaghetti, had King Cake, and watched This is Where I Leave You. The night ended perfectly spending time with the people I love!
On Sunday morning, Nick and I headed out for Starbucks (yes, I can get obsessed on the weekends when I’m in Starkville.) Surprisingly I watched more Friends with my sister while Nick did another run, and then before I left town, Nick and I had dinner at this local Thai restaurant! I was really resistant to trying it, but it turned out delicious!! I got the pineapple fried rice with tofu.
I actually hope Nick and I eat there again soon! The atmosphere is perfect for a date night – low lighting, quiet environment, and delicious food! I’m learning to really enjoy tofu, Thai Siam did an excellent job on the tofu portion of my meal. I’ve had my fair share of not so great tofu from restaurants (one in particular is when I ordered tofu that came cooked with meat, WTF?) so I’m always appreciative of great tofu!
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week – Talk to you tomorrow!
