I Am Back And Back With A Vengeance

I am ready for Monday! I am ready for my daughter to go back to school, I am ready to kick some butt at the gym, I am ready to be me again. Since my horrific race in Florida I have not been myself, I have been babysitting an injury, I have had my daughter home for the past two week on her school break and my kitchen has been under construction. I need to get back to my scheduled life and that will happen on Monday. I have less than a month for my next half marathon and I need to get running and back in top form. I am also ready to get back to reading all my blogger friends fabulous blogs, sorry I have been away for so long. I was lucky to have my parents watch my daughter for 2 days so hubby and I had a date night and we headed to Niagara Falls for some "us" time. Here I am by the Canadian falls: And here are the American falls in the distance: We enjoyed an evening lossing all our money at the casino but we were smart to go for dinner before so we could pay for the bill....LOL We had dinner at our fave Brazilian restaurant, Brasa. They have a fabulous hot table were you go and get your food, here is my plate:
And then they come around with meat from the grill on a spit and you choose if you want that cut of meat or not:
Yes it was delicious and way too much food but it was a great evening out with my hubby.

I have some great recipes to post in the next couple of weeks and I am going to enjoy cooking them in my new kitchen. Yes my kitchen is almost complete. The backsplash just needs to be sealed and some more artwork needs to be bought for the walls and it will be done but the construction zone is gone and I can now enjoy my new kitchen. Here are some pics:

Okay I am back, glad to be back. My next half marathon is April 22, so I need to kick this up a notch......look out here I come!


  1. I'm sorry to hear you're still having injury problems . . . hopefully you're back to fighting shape soon! :)

  2. So glad you're back! I hope that training goes well and that you're feeling strong in no time! :)

    BTW, I had to change my address, here's the new one :)

  3. I wish I could give you a hug, but it sounds like you're getting your mojo back and you're going to kick some serious butt!

  4. I absolutely LOVE your reno's Bela. The tile on the backsplash is gorgeous. Hope your injury heals soon!
