The light of my life.
That would be my gutters, removed from the house, sitting in my front yard. What began as a small repair project has morphed into a whole new ball game. And what began with just replacing my kitchen counter tops has morphed into exterior work, custom cabinet building, indoor paining and more. Oh home improvement…you are so expensive but so worth it.
So many green smoothies.
And green juice while I was stocking up on smoothie supplies at Earth Fare. I did a kale, apple, lemon, ginger and cucumber mix. Literally the only thing I am craving in the 90+ degree temps is green drinks (and gelato…and sushi…keep reading).
Salad from Crisp uptown. Spinach, mixed greens, walnuts, hardboiled eggs, dried cranberries, feta and pears. I was SUPER excited to leave my desk on Friday to walk a couple of blocks to meet a friend for lunch. While I did work in the “real world” for six years in my past life, I never worked downtown (uptown…whatever Charlotte wants to call it) and the energy is fun and different for me.
Thai Chicken Pizza from Pizza Peel. Love this place and haven’t had their pizza in years. It used to be on regular rotation for me.
Sushi from Sushi 101. Not my favorite sushi in Charlotte (by a long run) but gets the job done for a Monday night budget.
So…all of these dinners have been out to eat which isn’t the norm for me. Sadly, I have not been cooking at home lately due to adjusting to my new schedule. I know I’ll get back in a groove soon but I’m giving myself a break for now.
A new gelato place opened in my neighborhood, Va Da Vie Gelato, so I treated myself while I was waiting for paint samples to be ready last weekend. I liked the clean and modern exterior.
And my fresh peach gelato was pretty fabulous as well. I will definitely be a regular customer here! 🙂
Do you eat out more often when you’re busy with work?
That’s all I’ve got for you! Have an amazing day!
