A Run with Friends

in All Posts

You’ve got to read the comments on the Ethical Eating post.  They are SO GREAT and thoughtful!


Guess what I did today?  I met some potential Charlotte friends!  :)  I am so excited that Charlotte bloggers and readers are welcoming me with such open arms.


Kelly and Jen ran 5.0 miles in 55 minutes with me (we took a few walking breaks)! 


Jessie, Lauren, and Brittney did a little walk/run action around the park, too!


It was a GREAT workout but my legs are SO FREAKING SORE from No More Trouble Zones DVD.  It was a rough 5.0 miles!


Dinner was prepared by the Husband!


My personal chef made a veggie and bean mix.


He heated up two slices of Mediterranean Olive bread with pasta sauce on top.  The bread was from Great Harvest and OBVIOUSLY delicious.


We are laying on our couch, watching TV, and it is DIVINE. 


I’m going to show some decorating pictures tomorrow!  I finally feel like rooms are pulled together enough to show everyone.  There’s still some design blanks, maybe you can help me pull it together?  🙂

    Glad you’re settling in nicely and making new friends. It’s so hard to in a new city but that’s one reason why I adore social media. 🙂

    • caitlin July 7, 2010, 11:50 pm

      We just needed a change and Orlando wasn’t our forever city.

  • Run Sarah July 7, 2010, 10:48 pm

    Glad you found some running partners! The husband cooking photo is too cute – I love the colour scheme of your kitchen.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 7, 2010, 10:48 pm

    Gahhh I LIVE for before and after decorating pics (or even half-way!). I can’t wait to see.
    I am horrible at decorating. We got as far as painting and that is it…we have nothing on the walls!

    That’s one of the best perks of blogging . . . new friends 🙂

  • Amanda July 7, 2010, 11:10 pm

    It looks like your chef is in a top class kitchen! I imagine cooking is taken to a new level when your kitchen is top of the line 🙂

  • Cheryl H. July 7, 2010, 11:12 pm

    Your kitchen is absolutely beautiful! Nice find.

  • Allie (Live Laugh Eat) July 7, 2010, 11:27 pm

    • Caitlin July 8, 2010, 8:59 am

      I pretty much love everything in West Elm. I would do my entire house in West Elm if I could afford it.

  • Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 8, 2010, 7:52 am

    Yay for new friends! It’s nice to have workout buddies.

    Beautiful kitchen!

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman July 8, 2010, 8:21 am

    Rooms are already pulled together? Man, you guys work fast! I’m impressed. It usually takes me a month to have everything decorated. And, um, I kinda never hand pictures or anything. It seems like a waste of time when you movie every. single. year.

  • Marissa July 8, 2010, 8:45 am

    LOVE your kitchen! If I could re-do mine right now, it would look just like yours!

  • Brynne July 8, 2010, 9:29 am

    Yay can’t wait to see decorating pics!

  • Kelly July 8, 2010, 10:17 am

    Hey Caitlin! It was so nice to meet you yesterday. Thanks for a great run and hopefully we can do it again soon. Can’t wait to see what you do with your new place!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) July 8, 2010, 11:36 am
