Friday was J's birthday, and lucky him got to travel home from a business trip in Puerto Rico. I made dinner reservations for a German restaurant in our town (which probably wasn't a good idea since he had JUST gotten home) but he was a good sport and we went out anyway.
Had to start off the evening with birthday beer -
We had a potato pancake to start (didn't get a picture of it), he had the currywurst sausage with German potato salad and sauerkraut, and I had sauerbraten with spatzle, veggies, and gravy and potato dumplings and red cabbage. Dinner was delicious! I ordered baked alaska as our dessert -
When they brought it out they said "We don't sing" and then one of the guys yodeled for us...scared me to death as he was right next to me and I wasn't expecting it. It was good and we finished it off last night.
J mentioned that he wanted a new bike, so that's what he got for his birthday. I plan to drag him out to the greenway to ride while I do my runs :)
Saturday I volunteered at a fundraiser for You Lucky Dog Rescue at a local restaurant. It was my first official event with the rescue and I enjoyed meeting everyone that is affiliated with it. We had a great turnout and I'm really looking forward to working with them even more in the future.
I didn't get my run in this weekend like I wanted, and this week will be tough as I am working four 10 hour days to have Friday off, but I do have my next race on Saturday in Savannah! I'm dragging my brother with me in a 5k and I'm looking forward to it :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Until next time,
