• Vermont Is Glorious

    July 17, 2010

    Good morning! I love waking up in Vermont! :mrgreen:

    I just got back from a glorious 5.85-mile run through the Lake Champlain Bikeways, which run throughout the Lake Champlain Valley. Rumor has it there’s 1,300+ miles of bike paths!

    Check out the sign that I saw on my run! :lol:

    Breakfast

    Within minutes of finishing my run, Mal and Dave arrived home with bagels and iced coffee! Yes!!! Best husbands ever! :-D

    My hubby ordered me a Roasted Red Pepper-Asiago bagel with roasted red pepper and jalapeño cream cheese. Holy yum!

    It was a glorious breakfast! :-D

    Friday Night

    After getting settled in Burlington, we headed to our friends’ house in Ferrisburgh, Vermont. On the ride, we stopped at Quiznos. To save time, Dave and I took orders and ran inside get dinner for everyone.

    Mal, Marie, and the dogs waited in the car.

    Murphy throughly enjoyed the 30-minute ride to Farrisburg. He loved all of the sights, sounds, and smells. Murphy is definitely more of a country dog than a city dog!

    Our friends’ house in Ferrisburgh is AMAZING!! The house itself is beautiful and the yard is exactly what I want some day. Basically, Mal and I want to move in with them! ;-)

    My flatbread “Sammie” from Quiznos was actually pretty good. Better than I thought it would be!

    I also snacked on a couple of chocolate chips cookies and cheese + crackers over the course of the night.

    And a local beer! :-D

    I didn’t end up taking too many photos last night, but I had a really nice time with our friends.

    There were a lot of drinking games going on last night, but I didn’t participate. I’m not going to lie, I really wanted to play Flip Cup, but I kept my boozing to a minimum. There’s quite a bit of beer drinking on the agenda for today, so I tried to balance it out! ;-)

    My morning bagel kind of looks flat and boring in comparison to yours…haha. Yummy!

    Murphy is too adorable. I’ll bet he must love all that room to run around in and all the new smells of Vermont. :D

    I want that house!

    It’s hard to keep my competitive side away from the games, even the drinking ones.

    the paw prints on the asphalt are just so cute! i love it when outdoorsy places are dog friendly like that. my pups love our yard, but new sights and sniffs are always welcome. you can see murphy trying to get as much as possible with his nose out the window!
