Good evening! Mom mentioned she was craving scallops, so I got to have them TWO times in one week! Yipppeee.
I used my favorite method for cooking scallops: heat a wok, add a pad of butter, brown a tablespoon of garlic, pour in a few tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon and a sprinkle of pepper, and then brown the scallops (about 6 – 8 minutes).
Dinner by candlelight with mom (Future Husband is working… poor man!).
On the side, we had roasted sweet potato rings and brussel sprouts, each seasoned with kosher salt and pepper. And I had a taste of Yellow Tail Shiraz (which is VERY good for the price!).
"Working" Bridal Shower
Tomorrow AM, I’m getting together with friends and family for a "working" bridal shower. We’re putting together the wedding favors, programs, and gift bags. There will be lots of food, silly bridal games, and WEDDING CAKE taste-testing!!
I am ever so grateful to have help with all this stuff! Just look at this giant box of stuff for tomorrow! (Trust me, there’s more!).
Tomorrow is also my "rest" day before my big 10K race! I haven’t run a 10K race since August and I’m definitely looking to improve my time. I’m shooting for 56 minutes!
Do you prefer to set specific goals or take a more relaxed approach towards fitness? I really like to "measure" my success through distance logging or setting a new Personal Record (PR). I’m definitely a numbers person!
