Eating Out X Two

in All Posts

It’s truly Fall!  Time for boots and sweaters and drinking warm cups of coffee while going on long, lovely walks.


So fun to have Megan visiting!  Can she please, please live in my office forever?


After getting a lot of work done this morning (Megan went on an informational job interview), we met back up for lunch and shopping.  Today was a perfect example of blowing my budget.  Grr.  Oh well.


Beer 4 Lunch!


(Sweetwater 420)


And food, too.  :)  A big Napa Cabbage with feta, onions, cucumbers, apple, corn, and a giant black bean burger on top.  Everything was smothered in balsamic, too.


After eating, we explored a little gift shop and walked around my neighborhood.


Time for dinner!


To save money, Megan and I split this vegetable lo mien with added tofu.


Annnnd then we saw The Social Network, which was SUCH a good movie.  I loved it and highly recommend it to… well, pretty much everyone with a Facebook account :)  It was pretty cool to think about my sophomore year of college and realize that Mark Zuckerberg was a sophomore at the same time!  I remember when we got “The Facebook,” and it was such a big deal.  I can’t believe he ended up the youngest billionaire ever.


Now, we’re all sitting on the couch, and I’m munching on toast


Going to do a long run with Megan in the morning!

    I want to see The Social Network but haven’t gotten around to it. I heard it was really good!

    Aah Caitlin your budget!!! So I guess no going out to eat for the next week, huh? 🙂

  • Jenny November 4, 2010, 10:20 pm

    I’m a junior in college, I should probably get on my million-dollar making idea already! That toast looks really yummy by the way haha.

  • Michele @ Healthy Cultivations November 4, 2010, 10:21 pm

    I want to see The Social Network too. I was a latecomer to Facebook (and now don’t even use it) and didn’t even have a page until 2008.

  • Sarah November 4, 2010, 10:22 pm

    Oh man – I remember when Facebook was only open to certain schools. It was a BIG DEAL with facebook came to my college.

    I also remember when the wall was one thing and anyone could go in and change it – do you remember that?

  • Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun November 4, 2010, 10:26 pm

    Sounds like a fantastic day! And it is so crazy to think that he is our age. I remember I was a senior in college when FB came out.

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 4, 2010, 10:26 pm

    Ohh I love that it’s finally feeling like Fall around here. I definitely need to find a pair of cute boots like those!

  • Jenn @ LiveWellFitNow November 4, 2010, 10:30 pm

    Some days time with friends requires that the budget go out the window!

  • Tab - Just Weighing In November 4, 2010, 10:30 pm

    you always eat the most interesting food… that black bean dish looked really tasty!

  • Kelly November 4, 2010, 10:33 pm

    Not gonna lie, when I first saw the title of this post I read it as “Eating out for Two” As in eating for two because you are pregnant. Clearly not the case. Apparently I have babies on the brain as much as I know you have babies on the brain. Whoops. 🙂

    • Caitlin November 4, 2010, 10:35 pm

      I promise I will announce pregnancy in a much more epic way.

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey November 4, 2010, 10:40 pm

    Sounds like a fun day – and I had to laugh at the comment about the title being about prenancy. What is it with bloggers lately? I feel like everyone has baby fever! Not that I”m complaining, but for real! 🙂

  • Charlie November 4, 2010, 10:54 pm

    I really want to see The Social Network! Need to find time.

  • Claire (Low Impact Fashionista) November 4, 2010, 10:58 pm

    Looks like a fun day! Definitely looks like it was worth it to blow your budget a little to have fun with a friend you never get too see 😉 Oh and I really want to see Social Network!

  • Hope November 4, 2010, 11:18 pm

  • rebecca lustig November 4, 2010, 11:37 pm

  • janae @ hungryrunnergirl November 4, 2010, 11:51 pm

    Your dinner looks so so good! Good luck on your long run tomorrow:) If you get a chance head over to my giveaway….my favorite running gear!

  • Maddie November 4, 2010, 11:52 pm

  • Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) November 5, 2010, 12:31 am

    I just got up and made a peice of toast 😉 hehe GREAT idea!

  • Rebecca November 5, 2010, 12:56 am

    I am heading to the movies tomorrow, we don’t know what to see, maybe we should see The Social Network, it would be interesting to see how Facebook was developed.

  • Maura November 5, 2010, 1:14 am

    Loved the movie…minus all the rips on BU girls!

  • maya @ finding balance in tokyo November 5, 2010, 3:07 am

    Yay fall! But no boots for me for a while.. apparently I have been running too much and not doing enough yoga lately. whoops!

    I remember when it was “The Facebook” too. I think I was actually interested in joining it back then, but it wasn’t available at my college. By the time it had opened up to the public I’d totally lost interest, then it exploded all over the place and I felt odd joining late.. and now? It kinda scares me and I’ve become a hold out. eek. ;D

  • Erica November 5, 2010, 6:48 am

    Glad you two are having fun 🙂 That cabbage salad with the bean burger sounds awesome. What a cool combo of flavors. I voted!! Happy (almost) weekend

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) November 5, 2010, 7:29 am

    I want to see that movie so badly. Looks like you had a great day with your friend. Enjoy your run today!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 5, 2010, 7:39 am

    I always end up blowing my budget when I have friends visiting too. At least you guys are having fun though! 🙂

  • Leanne @ Simplicitlee November 5, 2010, 9:05 am

    It’s alright if you blow your budget every once & a while 🙂

  • Heather November 5, 2010, 9:12 am

    looks fun! I always blow my budget when friends are in town!

  • Casey November 5, 2010, 9:20 am

    Your toast always looks so good! What kind of bread do you buy?

    • Caitlin November 5, 2010, 12:04 pm

      It’s a brand called La Brea!

  • Ashley November 5, 2010, 9:51 am

    I’ve heard that movie is so good. It’s not my typical kind of movie so I’ll probably wait till it comes out on dvd…but chances are I’ll like it a lot haha.

  • Katie November 5, 2010, 10:13 am

    If you liked 420 you should see if anywhere has Sch’Wheat! It’s another Sweetwater beer and totally my favorite 🙂

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance....after a 100+ Pound weight loss!!! November 5, 2010, 10:15 am

    Your neighborhood is so beautiful! Love all the leaves on the ground…….SO FALL! =)

  • Jessica November 5, 2010, 10:57 am

    Seeing Megan is perfect excuse to spend a little $$.

    And I loved the Social Network as well. My mom really liked it too and she doesn’t have a facebook.

    Your day sounded so fun! Have a good day, Caitlin!

  • steph November 5, 2010, 11:53 am

    did you dye your hair? it looks lighter! you look beautiful

    • Caitlin November 5, 2010, 12:04 pm

      thanks! i haven’t dyed it since july and it’s gotten so light. 🙂

  • Amber K November 5, 2010, 4:24 pm

    I always feel a tiny bit unproductive when I hear about people younger than me being such huge successes! I haven’t seen the movie yet (I almost always wait until they come out on DVD), but it looks good!

  • Heidi - apples under my bed November 5, 2010, 6:13 pm

    I loved The Social Network too!! Such a great movie. Craving a black bean burger now 🙂
