Around 10:30 I had a gnawing hunger, which I remedied with a Lara lemon bar.
I liked the tartness which was similar to the key lime. I hadn’t tried either of these in the past but the tartness worked. Maybe I’ll try making them myself. I especially liked the addition of coconut in the key lime from yesterday.
When you stay out even 30 minutes too late, you either go to bed later or you skip doing something important like making your lunch. PB & J was my quick throw-together lunch of choice, which I had not much longer after I ate the Lara bar.
I also packed raw veggies and a peach. However around 11 am I got a pretty nasty headache and couldn’t bring myself to munch on crunchy veggies with a headache.
Around 2 pm I decided that I seriously needed to go home because my headache was starting to make me nauseous and the florescent lights weren’t helping. I headed home, but not before dropping by a store to pick up my 16 vases for my 16 tables at my wedding reception. The shipment had just came in to the store. Several of the vases in the shipment had been broken along the way, but lucky for me, all of mine were still in one piece. Whew! I don’t think I could deal with any major issues this late in the game.
My grumbling stomach needed a snack before my nap at 3:30 pm. I nuked some peaches and topped it with Greek Gods yogurt, the last of my homemade granola, and about 1/2 Tbsp. sunflower seed butter.
I slept soundly and woke up feeling soooo much better at 5:30 pm.
Brad and I had plans with a bunch of other Charlotte bloggers at Brixx Pizza in the South Park area.
We got there a little early and waited with Kath and Matt for our table to be ready.
Other bloggers who joined us were Katie, Michelle, Diana, and Rachel. It was nice to hang out and get to know these ladies better. Rachel was visiting from California, but she’s actually from Gastonia, where I am from. Such a small world! We had fun discussing how everyone in Gastonia has an Uncle Ronnie, which we both do of course. 🙂
Our appetizer of choice was the Mediterranean plate, which was three types of hummus and pita chips.
I also partook in some Kath and Matt’s bruschetta.
I avoided all of the complicated beers and stuck to something I knew: Stella.
I talked Brad into splitting a spinach salad with me since I hadn’t seen a veggie all day. The dressing was a bit spicy. Other toppings were croutons, pistachio, and goat cheese.
We also split an 8 inch roasted veggie pizza, which is my favorite at any pizza place. Brad asked for his half with pepperoni, but somehow it ended up with pepperoni all over it. I picked mine off and gave them to him.
I always ask for extra sauce but sometimes can’t get the waiter to bring it to me until I’m almost done with my pizza. Brixx gets brownie points by getting my extra sauce to me before I was done with my first piece.
I headed home early to make a fruit salad for a brunch tomorrow. I’ve got a 4 mile race in the Dilworth neighborhood bright and early planned too and more blogger meetup fun. 🙂
