Bowling and Brews

in All Posts

Beer, anyone?


The Husband, my brother in law, and I are headed to the bowling alley.  I think we all want a stiff drink – or a pitcher of beer to share.  🙂


I worked on my freelance articles all afternoon – and by work, I mean stare at the screen in frustration.  Finally, Jenna g-chatted me and told me to stop forcing it, and I must admit, I was happy to call it a night.  :)  Sometimes, the words just won’t flow!




Dippy egg on toast, roasted potatoes + ketchup, and broccoli.


Afternoon snack was a bowl of cereal:


Time to get my bowl on!


I hope you have a wonderful Friday night, too.

    I’m a terrible bowler, but it sounds like lots of fun.
    I’m glad you’re having swim lessons by the way – good form makes swimming MUCH easier!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 15, 2010, 9:19 pm

    Sounds like a fun night!! Your dinner looks great as well.

    I have no idea how to can handle the taste of beer. BLECH! Have a great night! Staying in with my husband, maybe gonna play some Simpsons scene it. Dinner – whole wheat spaghetti and a multi-veggie salad. yummmmm =)

  • Annie January 15, 2010, 9:36 pm

    I was wondering:
    What type of cereal is that?
    And what type of granola do you eat?

    • Caitlin January 15, 2010, 11:54 pm

      Cereal is the Costco brand Pecan and Blueberry

      and the Granola is Harvest brand.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 15, 2010, 10:05 pm

    Gotta love bowling! I usually find that I’m either incredibly on, or incredibly off when it comes to bowling…either way, it’s a good time 🙂

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) January 15, 2010, 10:09 pm

    Forced writing is the worst. It can read forced too. Good for you for getting out and enjoying yourself.

  • Heather @ The Joyful Kitchen January 15, 2010, 10:14 pm

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) January 15, 2010, 10:23 pm

    I love the semi breakfast-for-dinner. Eggs are good any time of the day!

  • Ashley January 15, 2010, 10:29 pm

    Dippy egg! I’m so glad to see someone else calls em that!


  • Kelly January 15, 2010, 10:35 pm

    Yay for bowling! I love bowling even though I call it a VERY successful night if I actually get above 100…haha!

  • Danielle January 15, 2010, 10:53 pm

    Carl and I played bowling on Wii tonight and he asked if we wanted to go “in real life sometime”. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when he said that. I’m game, but I’m HORRIBLE in real life.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday night!

  • Laura @ Food For La January 16, 2010, 12:08 am

    That first picture looks like it should be an ad for Stella Artois. Very cool.

  • Katharine January 16, 2010, 12:27 am

    I love bowling! Duck pin bowling is really popular here in Baltimore and there are a bunch of places where it’s BYOB. Very fun and relatively cheap date night or night out with friends!

  • Mastering Public Health January 16, 2010, 12:46 am

    Woohoo, bowling! And brews. Reliving those England days already, huh? 😉

  • Freya @ January 16, 2010, 6:17 am

    I wish I could bowl 🙁 whenever I go, I always have to have those stupid child rails up so the ball doesn’t go down the side :p and I still never get a good score!
    Your dinner looks like breakfst 😛
    Have fun!

  • Allison January 16, 2010, 6:38 am

    Husband and I are thinking about bowling and brews (for him) tonight! My high score is about 60, so as you can tell, I’m the world’s worst bowler. Maybe beer would help…

  • Morgan @ Life After Bagels January 16, 2010, 6:44 am

    who won?!?!?

    • caitlin January 16, 2010, 9:41 am

      the Husband… he always wins.

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers January 16, 2010, 6:54 am

    Mmm I wish I really could take that beer from you 😉 You can’t force writing…hopefully beer and bowling will get your writing juices flowing 🙂

  • Darci January 16, 2010, 7:29 am

    bowling and beer….great combo!! 🙂

  • Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) January 16, 2010, 7:43 am

  • Meredith January 16, 2010, 10:09 am

    Totally unrelated to your post, but I wanted to share that this morning I finished my first 5k!! I was getting nervous but all your marathon posts really helped to encourage me. I kept thinking “If she can run a marathon, I can do 3.1 miles!” And I did!! 33:00.82 with some BIG hills to climb! Thanks for being an inspiration!

    • caitlin January 16, 2010, 10:26 am

      CONGRATS!! That is a huge accomplishment and I’m proud!
