I Need a Beer

in All Posts

I rarely say that… but seriously, I needed a beer today.  Which worked out perfectly because I was meeting up with Meghann and Jordan for dinner.




We went to Wildside Upscale BBQ, which is my favorite place in Orlando for casual dining.  I started thing off with Wildside’s house brew (kind of a Killian’s/Yuengling mix.


Times two! 🙂


I had a BBQ chicken cheesy toasted thing.  DeLISH!


And a grilled chicken salad with some thai sauce….  It was hugeeeee.  And I was filled of beer!  I have leftovers…


It was a really nice evening! Meeting Jordan was fun. :) 


She even bought me these AMAAAAZING oatmeal cookies. I ate two and a half while reviewing the RSVP cards we got in the mail today…


My tummy felt anxious all day about my poor doggie — I can’t believe we have to put him down tomorrow! Your kind thoughts made me feel a LOT BETTER this afternoon…. thank you so much! It just sucks.


Around 1 PM, I had an apple + a Z-bar. I’ve officially depleted my supply of Z-bars.  Sooooooooooo GOOD!


And a yogurt + granola around 4 PM. I’ve depleted the yogurt AND granola supply as well!  Guess you’ll see new snacks tomorrow!



It’s been two days without a run. My legs are itchy…but I think it was for the best — rest days are just as important as work out days, after all! My leggies still hurt from the half marathon! Yeesh! Can’t wait to run tomorrow…. 🙂


Good night, sleep tight!

    OH gosh… I didn't even SEE that you have to put your baby down. I know how it feels, Cait, and I'll be holding you high in my heart all day tomorrow and throughout the weekend! I'm just so sorry. Times a million. <333

    Oh yeah and [PS] I totally just cried my eyes out reading Dog’s Prayer… Oh boy. You’re in my heart, my loverbear!

    Hooray for a fun blogger dinner – I love reading about you guys meeting up :0)

    Enjoy your run tomorrow!!

    Caitlin, I’m here for you for extra support about Louie (since you know now that I recently lost my dear “furry sister”). Stay strong.

    Glad you had fun with the girls!

    My heart goes out to you! I am so sorry to hear about your dog. My thoughts and prayers will be with you!

    It looks like you had a great time! 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dog! I know how awful it is to lose a pet. I hate for anyone to have to go through that.

    i am so sorry about your pup having to be put down. i really understand how hard it is, especially if you aren’t around to really go through it. my parents had to put my dog down when i was abroad and it was so tough to just hear about it. take time to be sad and give your other dogs some extra love – they’ll understand you need it 🙂

    ugh i needed a beer today too but couldnt find anyone t go with me and didnt want to be that person that goes to the bar by themselves.

    i may just go to safeway and get some wine.

    anyways- dinner looks amazing! and a cookie is the perfect way to end it 🙂

    Looks like a fun night… i hope you have a good run tomorow!

  • Aimee October 10, 2008, 4:43 am

    So sorry about Louie. I had to go to the Vet with my mom to put down her Lab that we had since I was in 7th grade, and it was hard. But your thinking is right, that sometimes is is so much better for the dog because of how much pain they are in.

    My thoughts are with you and your mom!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) October 10, 2008, 5:06 am

    thanks aimee <3
