Early Birthday Celebrating and Faves and Raves

We are not quite in vacation mode yet, because I am working a Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday morning… but I decided today that we should start The Captain’s birthday celebrations couple of days early!

We did our Metabolic Aftershock workout this morning, and followed it up with a good stretch and then a half hour walk… met a new little bulldog friend called Lily along the way. I have met several puppies this week and that always puts a big smile on my face.

Then, back home, after our showers, and a bit of packing, we headed off on foot to our new favorite sushi restaurant where we both enjoyed delicious sushi bento box lunches.

Miso soup for starters… and of course a cup of hot green tea…

with salad, California Rolls, Salmon, Tuna and Prawn sushi…  this is the only time I ever eat rice.

The Captain loves tuna and I love salmon so we traded those pieces!

Then we walked around the Inner Harbour, picked up a few items for our trip, and then stopped at our local Starbuck’s so that The Captain could enjoy his birthday reward.  He chose a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappucino… and I didn’t get a picture of it before he started in on it!

It was iced coffee for me today, with a vanilla shot and fat free milk.  Lovely.  Then we came home and did some packing in earnest. I am so excited about getting away soon.

I read so many great blog posts and articles this week.  Here are the highlights:
If you check them out, please be sure to let the blogger know I sent you!

This is likely my last post before we leave on vacation so I will catch you on the road!
