Happy Anniversary!! Well, Kinda…

February 9, 2013

So, I’m a lucky girl, and Hubs suggested we start celebrating our anniversary…on a monthly basis 🙂  I thought it was so cute that he suggested it that of course I obliged!  Soooo, we decided to celebrate at Flemings Steak House!

But first…the workout!  I dragged my sore butt out of bed at 5AM to head to CrossFit.  The WOD was exhausting…or maybe it was just 6AM?  Who knows!

Tuesday WOD

15 Mins to work up to a Heavy Single C&J

then

5 Squat Clean (205/145)

10 Bar Facing Burpees

20 Pull ups

4 Squat Cleans

8 Bar Facing Burpees

16 Pull ups

3 Squat Cleans

6 Bar Facing Burpees

12 Pull ups

2 Squat Cleans

4 Bar Facing Burpees

8 Pull ups

1 Squat Clean

2 Bar Facing Burpees

4 Pull ups

Those bar facing burpees kick my butt!  I don’t know what it is about them, but they make me want to pass out.  Check out this clip of Julie Foucher…she kicks the burpees ass!  I kind of want to be her 🙂  It is a looong clip but if you skip ahead to when the workout starts, you’ll be glued to the screen.  Unbelievable.  I would have died.

Anywho, dinner was relish, but the pics are terrible!  I used my phone and Flemings has the lowest lighting ever.  Lucky for us, it was also Restaurant Week!  We each got a 3ish course meal for $30.13.  And, because it was our “anniversary” we got a $25 gift card and a box of truffles!  We will definitely be going back 🙂

To start, the wedge salad.  Yuck photo!  Why don’t restaurants have amazing lighting so we can showcase their food??

Can you even see that?  It is a 5 oz filet mignon with grilled asparagus an Flemings Potatoes…essentially, potatoes au gratin.  They were good!  The steak was the perfect size 🙂

And for dessert, the white chocolate bread pudding was on the menu, but of course I couldn’t have that.  Instead, they gave me fresh berries with Chantilly cream. Delish!

It was nice to have a lighter dessert also.  Left some room for the chocolate truffles we got for our anniversary too 😉

Now for your quote of the day!

Just knowing that good things are now happening for you behind the curtains of time and space, which will soon spill into your life, is enough to make good things start happening for you.

Always know this, Alyssa. Because they are.

Isn’t that comforting?  Sometimes it is nice to have faith that everything is going to work out 🙂  What anniversaries do you celebrate?  What are your thoughts on the above quote?

Have a great weekend!

xoxo
