Last night, I met up with Clare for dinner!
We both just started new jobs in Dallas this week, so it was great to meet up with someone with similar interests.
We went to the Dream Café, located in the Uptown portion of Dallas.
Everything on the menu sounded really good, but I ended up with the “Global Dinner.”
Organic Black Beans, Brown Rice, Chicken or Tofu, Jack Cheese
I couldn’t decide between chicken or tofu, so I got both! FYI, that cheese was just as good as it looks
Clare rolled with the “Stir Fry.”
Strawberry Sweet-Sour, Chinese Long Beans, Tofu
It looked pretty good!
We ended up talking for about two hours! The topics included work, schedules, running, food…
Blogging type stuff
After awhile, it was time to call it a night.
After last week of work, I totally have respect for the people who work from 8:00 to 5:00. I’ve definitely worked 40+ hours a week at my old job, but it was never 8:00-5:00 everyday. Some days it was mornings, some days it was nights, and some days it was both. I now understand that 8:00 to 5:00 is rough, especially when your mornings start at 5:00 AM with a workout!
After sleeping like like a rock this morning, I was up around 7:30 for a run.
I woke up too late to make the drive out to White Rock Lake (where I wanted to run) because it would have been too hot by the time that I actually made it out there, so I ran on some roads around here.
I ended up doing 11 miles!
I still haven’t had time to explore the area, but I plan on doing that at some point this weekend.
I’ve deemed that today is my “errand and chore day."
So far, I’ve…
- Cleaned the kitchen
- Cleaned the bathroom
- Washed my clothes
- Folded my clothes
The only thing left to do is get groceries at Whole Foods and mooch some lunch off of Bama-dad Trust me, he likes it!
The rest of the weekend will be pretty low-key. I’m meeting up with someone from work tonight and then having dinner at my parents house on Sunday (I think). Hopefully they still want to have me over!
What are you up to this weekend?
