At night Tim and I had plans to meet friends at Olive Garden in Chattanooga. For the record, they have gluten-free pasta! Also the record, I refuse to spend $20 for pasta with marinara sauce. I had some mussels and salad and was underwhelmed. And bitter. Why does anyone go to Olive Garden if not for the breadsticks?
The night was redeemed with good wine, great conversation and even some bowling. You know what goes well with skinny jeans and a floral top? Old bowling shoes.
If that picture makes you think I was on drugs, you're wrong. I was, however, just a little tipsy. It seems as if wine has a strange effect on my bowling skills. I would go from two strikes in a row to a gutter ball and back again pretty quickly. In my book, if you don't use bumpers over the gutter you're practically a professional.

Since we were up so late at night, we slept in until the late hour of....7:30. You've got to be kidding me. I used to pride myself on the ability to sleep in until noon. Now I'm a failure. Our friends weren't up until 10, so a strange thing happened that morning. I was...hungry.
Hear me out. I work from home. I have no kids. I can be pretty selfish with scheduling most of the time. When I'm hungry, I eat food. Right away. I can't remember the last time I was hungry for more than a few minutes. Saturday morning I was STARVING and didn't eat for three or four hours....and I lived. Crazy.
More fun weekend happenings:
-Buying some gluten free cider to taste test
-Paying ridiculous amounts of money for lunch at Whole Foods
-Realizing that my frozen yogurt for dessert actually cost more than my lunch did (TOPPINGS ARE HEAVY!)
-Watching a rubber ducky race on the river in Chattanooga
-a great 4 mile group run with a pace of 8:29(!!!!)
-Starting book three in the Game of Thrones series
If this post is too long for you to read, I'd like to recap it for you:
Work is lame. Being hungry ≠ death. Wine is delicious. I'm super awesome at bowling when drunk. The end.
Do you ever find yourself starving or are you like me and keep snacks on hand at all times?
I never leave the house without food on me, unless we are actually driving to a restaurant. I guess since I work 14 feet from my kitchen, I just eat as soon as I get hungry.
What was the absolute best part of your weekend?
It's a tie. Good conversation with friends late Friday night and this morning's mostly female group run. All the dads were home enjoying Father's Day it seemed!
