So excited!




I am off to see Michelle Obama give a press conference.  Considering that I missed both Obama and Clinton when they came to Charlotte for the DNC, I feel so lucky to see Michelle.  I don’t think I’ll get to talk to her or even get close, but here’s to hoping.


This morning has been go-go-go in an attempt to get everything together before leaving.  My big goal of the day was to run 3.5 miles.  I’m really trying to re-commit to running in preparation for my upcoming half marathon.  I ran the last mile in a mere 7:55 – so proud.


Came home and made a basic lunch.




Steamed kale

Toast with Italian herb spread


Nom nom.  Nom nom.


Off to hang with Mrs. Obama!

    Regardless of which way I lean politically, I have always been a fan of Michelle Obama. I love her initiative to get healthy lunches in schools and for raising awareness about real food by putting in a garden at the White House. I hope you enjoy the press conference.

    So. FREAKING. Jealous.

  • Caitlin @ This Bride's Joyride November 5, 2012, 1:55 pm

    Ohhh so exciting you’re abot to see (and maybe talk!) with Michelle!

    For some reason your toast always looks really delicious. Everytime you post it for breakfast or lunch I always crave just basic fluffy toast with butter!

  • Liz November 5, 2012, 2:02 pm

    What kind of bread do you eat? It always looks delicious. And the herb spread is intriguing too.

  • Beth November 5, 2012, 2:14 pm

    7.55! Wow you are getting speedy!

    Loooove Michelle!!! I hope you write about the press conference on the blog!

  • Annette@FitnessPerks November 5, 2012, 2:15 pm

  • Rachel November 5, 2012, 2:16 pm

    That is so exciting! I can’t wait to hear your post on her speech. I wish I could have seen Obama or the First Lady…or for that matter Bill or Hilary!

  • Nicole November 5, 2012, 2:17 pm

    So exciting! She is such a lovely lady, I respect her so much! Congrats on the sub 8 minute mile, that’s awesome!

  • Katie November 5, 2012, 2:35 pm

    So exciting! I saw Bill Clinton speak for the 2008 election (campaigning for Hillary in the primary) and I will never forget it. I was about 20 feet away from him. Funny thing was it was in a small town in Montana population 4000 when I was visiting my aunt. So random.

  • Addy November 5, 2012, 2:46 pm

    oh, that is so exciting! I hope the event was great. She is so wonderful to see in person too!

  • julia November 5, 2012, 2:52 pm

    I’d love to hear her speak!

  • Amber K November 5, 2012, 3:38 pm

    Have a great time! I would love to hear her speak in person.

  • Emily November 5, 2012, 3:41 pm

    What a cool experience! I can’t wait to hear how it went. I’m a huge fan of hers – what an inspiration!!

  • Ashleysh22 November 5, 2012, 5:23 pm

    That is so exciting! I actually think I would be more excited to see Michelle than President Obama himself. I love all that she is trying to do for improving childhood nutrition and lifestyles!

    How do you prepare your lentils?

    • Caitlin November 6, 2012, 7:41 am
