Happy weekend! Glad it’s not over just yet.
As a very belated birthday, my girlfriend’s and I went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday with dinner and bowling.
We started the evening off with Mexican at Lindo Michoacan.
The restaurant was crazy busy, so I’m pretty sure I managed to eat a whole bowl of chips myself while waiting for our food. Bean dip is my weakness.
Keeping up with the birthday celebration, I splurged with a raspberry margarita while the birthday girl went with a pina colada.
There are lots of delicious options, but I was feeling a salad so the Chipotle Caesars Salad it was.
Crisp romaine lettuce, grilled corn, queso fresco, cilantro, tomatoes, and topped with chipotle-chile dressing and grilled corn bread.
It was quite the fun and tasty spin on a Caesar’s salad. I barely made a dent though, since the chips and drink managed to fill me up. Oops!
Thankfully, my bowling score was MUCH better this time around. I broke 100 both games!
It was great having a girl’s night! I hadn’t seen most of them since my friend’s wedding in October.
My Sunday running buddies and I have been a bit burnt out with running, so my friend suggested a hike for our workout instead.
She had discovered a 7 mile trail in Anthem which she thought I’d like. It was a gorgeous day for hiking. Sunny, blue skies and temps in the 60s.
Although the trail is not as green as I’m sure many of you are used to, there was still amazing sights.
The view from the top was incredible! A bit difficult to tell in this picture, but there was a beautiful view of the strip.
I’m glad we decided to change up our usual Sunday workout. And we have to soak up this fabulous weather while we have it. Is it really January??
When I got back from the hike, I ran a few errands including Trader Joes where I went a tad bit crazy. Love that store!
I also finished up watching the movie Rio that the boy and I had started the other day. So adorable! Even at 27, I still love watching animated movies. They make me feel like a kid again!
Hope you’re having a fabulous day!

What is the last animated movie you watched and enjoyed?
I absolutely loved the movie Up. Such a sweet story. My sister raves about How To Train Your Dragon, which I have been meaning to borrow from her.
