Girls and Boys

The boys:


After a week of work, I am enjoying a day off to play with Kath + Matt!  The Husband worked all weekend too, so he’s playing hooky as well.


Matt and Kath are pretty fast runners, so when they suggested that I join them for a 6.0-mile jaunt, I hesitantly agreed… after I made them promise not to go out too fast!  I managed to keep up though for 6.0 miles.  We finished up in 57:00 minutes of so.


Everyone came home, showered, and got to work in the kitchen for lunch.  Everyone tackled one part of lunch:

My plate:


An egg, cheese, mustard, sprout, and arugula sandwich on lovely Great Harvest bread:


Apple slices from Virginia:


And a little smoothie, which contained almond milk, peanut butter, brown rice protein, spinach, cinnamon, flax, and Nesquik:


Off to go play!

    I just read a very similar post on Kath’s blog. 🙂 Sounds like you guys (and gals!) are having a blast!

  • Sarah for Real October 11, 2010, 2:26 pm

    Is it weird that I looked at those photos trying to figure out who ended up having to do Maggie’s glands? lol eeeewwwww!!!

    • Caitlin October 11, 2010, 2:27 pm


  • Camille October 11, 2010, 2:28 pm

    I love the girls and boys photos 🙂 So cute!

  • Freya October 11, 2010, 2:37 pm

    Y’all look so happy! And that smoothie sounds DIVINE! I was wondering what was in it, cos on kath’s blog, it was just a PB I know 🙂

  • Holly @ couchpotatoathlete October 11, 2010, 2:38 pm

    What a nice lunch — I wish I was playing hooky today 🙁

  • Alexa @ The Girl In Chucks October 11, 2010, 2:40 pm

    Whenever I read about bloggers meeting up and making meals together, I always feel apprehensive. I imagine myself in the situation and everyone finding out what a kitchen spaz I am…embarrassing! 😉

    You all look spaz free though…with a beautiful looking lunch. Have fun!

  • Amber K October 11, 2010, 2:46 pm

    Looks like you all are having a blast!

  • Kelly October 11, 2010, 2:46 pm

    Have a fun day with Kath, Matt, and the husband!

  • hippierunner October 11, 2010, 2:51 pm

    I wish I had your smoothie right now! But I’m at school, so I’ll have to wait like 5 hours til I get home. :/

  • Dorry October 11, 2010, 2:51 pm

    This is perfect! We’re doing similar fun playthings on this holiday in Dallas. Don’t you wish all Mondays could be like this?

  • Stacey October 11, 2010, 2:54 pm

    Have fun playing! Glad you were able to keep up 😉 I’ve run with Kath and I totally could not keep up lol

  • Kristina @ spabettie October 11, 2010, 2:55 pm

    sweet Maggie…

    Enjoy your day off !! 😀

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine October 11, 2010, 2:58 pm

    I love seeing bloggers on each others’ pages! Hope you guys have a fantastic afternoon!

  • carlee October 11, 2010, 3:00 pm

    Wow! That sandwich looks nice!
    I never thiought of using alfalfa sprouts that way I always just do veggie sandwiches with them! But eggs and cheese with them is a great way for me to mix it up nexttime!
    I wish I lived in Orlando with all you fancy bloggers!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 11, 2010, 3:11 pm

    Sounds like a fun afternoon with friends! Enjoy the rest of your day!

  • whitney October 11, 2010, 3:17 pm

    it’s a beautiful day! Enjoy the weather.

    That smoothie looks delicious

  • krista October 11, 2010, 3:30 pm

    Saw the blender and immediately thought margaritas! Can you tell what I’d rather be drinking than my boring coffee at work right now?

  • Exercise and Eat October 11, 2010, 3:31 pm

    Enjoy your day with KathEats!

  • Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun October 11, 2010, 3:35 pm

    I bet the two of you have so much fun hanging out together!

  • Ramona October 11, 2010, 3:42 pm

    That smoothie looks great! I make smoothies with just veggies and almond milk. If I use only fruits & veggies (along with a litle almond milk), the smoothies are low in calories, right? Is it the protein powder and peanut butter that raises the calories? This might be a silly question, but I’ve paranoid that my smoothies might have too many calories. I can’t figure out why, though. 😉

    • Caitlin October 11, 2010, 5:09 pm

      I think it’s important (weight maintenance wise) to decide if you want your smoothies as a meal or a snack. If you’re eating it as a meal, load up on that PB and protein! If it’s a snack, go easier on PB OR protein or skip it all together, maybe depending on whether or not you are refueling from exercise.

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) October 11, 2010, 3:45 pm

    Those egg sandwiches look fabulous!!

    And that is such a cute picture of the gals and guys. 😀

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) October 11, 2010, 3:46 pm

    I love the combination of foods on your sandwich!

  • TheHerBehindItAll October 11, 2010, 3:47 pm

    That smoothie looks amazing!!! I wish I could play hooky from work but the budget doesn’t allow for it :[

  • Tracy October 11, 2010, 3:52 pm

    Has KERF’s hair gotten really long really fast or something? She looks so different than when you guys met up just after your move (just prior to theirs).

    • Caitlin October 11, 2010, 5:09 pm

      it does look a lot longer! she’s so lucky.

  • Marina October 11, 2010, 4:07 pm

    Have an awesome day together, I bet you’ll have so much fun 🙂

  • Marissa October 11, 2010, 4:10 pm

    yall are so lucky to have so many friends that share in your same healthy lifestyle! we’re workin’ on it, but it’s difficult to find healthy people here in the big easy!

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write October 11, 2010, 4:23 pm

    Lunch looks good. Cute boys and girls pictures.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday October 11, 2010, 4:25 pm

    Ah how fun! I love running with a small group. It keeps you motivated, especially if they have a faster pace.

  • Ellen @FirednFabulous October 11, 2010, 4:40 pm

    Aww, glad you got the day off…sounds like a great, relaxing day. I’m jealous 🙂

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) October 11, 2010, 4:49 pm

    oooh have fun!

  • Hope October 11, 2010, 5:03 pm

    Lovely piccies, wish I’d played hooky today too!
    Yum, that sandwich looks so good, I think my stomach just growled lol 🙂

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey October 11, 2010, 5:24 pm

    Looove your lunch – I knew I would see it up here after seeing it over by Kath as well! 🙂

  • Mm October 11, 2010, 5:36 pm

    What a relaxing Monday!
    Gotta grab something to eat. The sandwich made my stomach growling.

  • steph October 11, 2010, 5:38 pm

    haha maggie is all deer in the headlights

  • Rachel October 11, 2010, 6:25 pm

    Yay for Great Harvest Bread making an appearance on the blog again!

  • Jamie @ Food in Real Life October 11, 2010, 7:00 pm

    Looks like a fun day! I always kind of freak out when i have to run with people that are faster then me. I have a run with my sister planned on October 30th and I’m already kind of nervous. Why am I such a spaz? I also think that for some reason I run slower when I run with faster people because I feel that I need to insist that I run at MY PACE. Maybe now that i have a garmin i can be a little more normal. 🙂

  • Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) October 11, 2010, 7:05 pm

    Just read about this on Kath’s blog and looks like you guys had a great run and lunch! You’re right, they are fast!!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 11, 2010, 7:34 pm

    Playing hooky is the best, especially for a day like this!

  • Jessica@tastyandtrim October 11, 2010, 7:35 pm

    I love how you included the dogs in the pictures – so cute! Have fun! 🙂

  • Sarah October 11, 2010, 7:53 pm

    My mouth watered a little bit when I read “arugula.” I’m in love with that stuff!

  • Rachel @ No Need For Speed October 11, 2010, 7:54 pm

    Maggie makes my day. Every day. Just sayin.

  • Wei-Wei October 11, 2010, 7:56 pm

    Cutest smiles ever.

  • Nikka B October 11, 2010, 8:34 pm

    Yummy lunch!
    I want to replicate that egg sandwich very very soon 😛

  • Emily October 11, 2010, 8:36 pm

    Awesome morning! So fun to be with good friends who share your interests, hobbies and taste 🙂 Hope you four had a fun rest of the day!!

  • M October 11, 2010, 8:47 pm

    Just wondering if your hubby is still doing complete vegan thing?If so, may I ask what he ate instead of cheese/egg sandwich?

    • Caitlin October 12, 2010, 8:08 am

      pretty much! he had hummus. 🙂

  • Rachael October 11, 2010, 8:57 pm

    Sounds like a fun meet up – glad y’all get to enjoy each other and have a little much-earned relaxation and/or running time!
