Year #37 is off to a great start so far! 🙂
My birthday kicked off with an awesome (and super sweaty – holy humidity) workout at KFIT. The workout was a lot of fun – a nice mix of running, rowing, and strength. And the best part was that PR-ed my 1RM Power Clean by 5 pounds, which was quite a nice surprise since I haven’t tested it in years and typically avoid 1 rep max days. (I’m not usually a fan of lifting heavy or the pressure that I put on myself when it comes to maxes, so I just skip those days!)
After KFIT, I headed home, showered, worked for a bit, and then ate leftover birthday cake for lunch. I mean, when else is it okay to eat cake for lunch? 🙂
I worked for a few more hours and then met up with Mal for a shopping adventure at the Derby Street Shoppes. Maybe it’s because I work from home and have grown to enjoy “shopping” via Stitch Fix, but I’m just not a fan of going to a store and trying things on. It’s just so overwhelming, and I have no idea what to buy. Thankfully, Mal likes fashion and helped me find a few pieces to add to my summer wardrobe because I recently told him that I “hate just everything in my closet.” I know, I’m so dramatic. Anyway, I bought a couple of linen tank tops as well as a long-sleeve shirt and high-rise jean shorts, which literally made me laugh out loud when Mal suggested them, but they’re really comfortable and quite flattering – they’ll definitely become a staple this summer!
After my mini shopping spree, we picked up Qman from daycare and headed to Trident for dinner. We started with drinks, oysters, and cheese.
Qman loved preparing the oysters and spreading jam on our bread for us! 🙂
The Parmesan Truffle Fries were so amazing! Must order again.
And we shared Creme Brulee for dessert, which, sadly, wasn’t all that great. It was super watery, but we loved everything else we tried, so we weren’t all that upset about it.
After dinner, we headed outside to stretch our legs and explore the shipyard before heading home.
Good times! 🙂
It was an awesome birthday for sure! A big THANK YOU to my boys for making it an extra special one! 🙂
