Quick Trip to Falmouth + Date Night at C Salt Wine Bar

Hey there!

Hi, guys!

On Thursday morning, Qman ended up sleeping till about 7:15 AM, so when he came into our room, Mal and I didn’t know what was going on. Recently, we’ve had a lot of super early mornings (and middle-of-the-night wake-ups), so him sleeping that late was quite the nice surprise!

Once we were up and ’em, I realized that Mal and I needed to divide and conquer if we wanted to get ourselves out the door on time. I had planned to go to CrossFit and he had a tee time with one of his friends for golf, so he walked Murphy and I got Quinn ready for school.

After I dropped Quinn off at school daycare, I headed to CrossFit for a work out. This one was pretty brutal. It was all-out, high-intensity, and my legs were screaming for mercy. Holy cow. All of those wall balls, snatches, rowing, and box jumps definitely caught up with me!

Back at home, I took a quick shower and then finished filling our clean out bag from thredUP. When I went to snap a photo, Murphy got his big ol’ pug butt right in the way.

Take two.

Before I left the house, I ate a Oikos Triple Zero coffee yogurt, which is the perfect refuel snack since it has a good amount of protein and carbs per container.

Then, I packed up my things and headed to the Capital One Café to get to work.

As soon as I arrived, I ordered a decaf double shot of espresso and then added a splash of cream. Delicious!

With espresso in hand, I got right to work. Somehow, my to do list has grown to three pages. Oy. Around noon, I broke into my lunch, which was leftover veggies, rice, and ground chicken from the fridge.

A few hours later, I snacked on a rice cake with Wild Friends protein + vanilla almond butter.

The day definitely flew by and, before I knew it, it was time to pick up Quinn from daycare.

Back at home, Mal and I quickly got ourselves ready to drive down to the Cape to pick up my bib for the Falmouth Road Race.

An hour later, we were at the expo!

The nice folks from Health Warrior hooked me up with a bib again, so, of course, I had to go by their booth to say hello and THANK YOU.

I’m so excited to run with the Health Warrior team again.

I’ll be sporting some Health Warrior gear on race day, so if you’re running and see me, please say hello! 🙂

Mal and I spent a little time at the expo and then we headed out in the Falmouth to find somewhere to eat dinner. The sign below caught my attention. Hello, wine bar!

As soon as we walked into C Salt Wine Bar & Grille, we knew we had made a good decision. It was totally packed on a Thursday evening,! And when we asked for a table for two, the hostess said they were completely booked up for the evening. Luckily, there were two open seats at the bar, so things worked out for us! 🙂

The bartender was really friendly and made a bunch of white wine recommendation for me. It end up being kind of like a mini tasting!

I ended up picking an incredible French white wine – it was clean, crisp, and mineral-y. Loved it.

Our seats at the bar we’re actually right in front of a big bin of fresh oysters, so, obviously, we needed to order some.

But first, oysters.

The Charred Spanish Octopus on the menu immediately caught my attention. The combination of ingredients just sounded so interesting, I had to order it.

The octopus was something that I might not usually order, but I’m so glad that I did. All of the different flavors and textures were phenomenal together. Mal and I also shared an order of truffle fries, which, of course, were amazing.

Mal and I were satisfied after dinner, but then we saw the dessert menu. Holy cow, the “Cake in a Jar” just had to happen.

Oh my gosh, it was heaven in a jar. I’m so glad that I saved room in my extra stomach for this caramel cake deliciousness. It was quite the sweet ending to the evening!

Questions of the Day

Anyone running the Falmouth Road Race this weekend?

Do you have an extra stomach for dessert?




  1. I am a long-time reader and first time commenter. I just want to let you know how much I have thoroughly enjoyed your posts as of late. I love how you are including more of your day to day life! 🙂

  2. I love that you guys “divide and conquer” – which includes Murphy, haha! Divide and conquer is basically the motto of our house. My husband currently has the 5 and 3-year-old at CrossFit with him (watching the iPad and sitting next to the weight rack lol) and I’m home with the 2-year-old and newborn. Divide and conquer!!

  3. How prepared do you feel for the race? While it isn’t super long, I know you’ve lamented that injuries have plagued your running this year. What’s the longest training run you’ve done? I hope it goes well!

  4. So many of my friends and family members are running falmouth today! Have fun and keep cool:)
    And I often have an extra stomach for dessert…especially if something like cake in a jar is available to me! That looks amazing!!
