Birthdays, Burgers, and Baby Bites

{Virginia}
My Thursday started with a cup of coffee of course! 

After this, I headed out to meet my favorite running partners for an early morning jog before work.  We did our usual 4 mile jog.  Fall is in the air!  It was such a cool morning and it was wonderful! 

We got ready for work at Rainie’s loft.  I know I have said this before but Rainie is the best hostess.  Not only does she let us get ready at her loft, she makes a pot of coffee for us to sip on while we get ready for work and this morning she made me a smoothie with her new vegan protein powder and it was quite tasty! 


Today I tried the Light and Fit Greek Yogurt with chocolate on top for my snack.  Although it was good, I will probably not get it again.  It was not as good as I hoped.  I guess I was expecting more of a thick chocolate on top.  

Lunch was leftover “One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta” (www.skinnytaste.com) with a side of carrots and hummus.  It was just as good today as it was the other night! 


By 4:30pm I needed another snack so I grabbed some peanut butter and graham crackers and I am so  glad that I did because we didn’t end up eating dinner until around 8:30! 

A a few of us from work stopped by Cahaba Brewery for about an hour because they were having a charity event to raise money for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).  This is also where we kicked of Katie’s birthday celebration!  We played a little skeeball tournament.  Katie and I were the final 2 and Katie ended up with the win! 



Then we headed to The J.Clyde for Katie’s birthday dinner.  Kathleen and I both got the J.Clyde burger and I got sweet potato fries as my side item with the Leffe Blonde Ale to drink. 




I'm very curious to know what Emily and Hiba are talking about here?
Kathleen had a little sample of the pumpkin beer and it tasted like pumpkin pie.  I tried it and it really did taste like it had pumpkin pie spice in it.  

As expected, Katie had a great turn out for her birthday dinner!  Everyone loves Katie! 
For Katie’s birthday dessert we had “Baby Bites” from Pastry Art in Homewood.(http://www.pastryartcakes.com/baby-bites/)   If you have never tried a “Baby Bite” you are missing out because they are AMAZING!  I would strongly recommend "Baby Bites”.  Of course, we had to let Katie blow out a candle on her birthday but we didn’t sing because Katie does not love to be the center of attention.    
The birthday girl!

I didn't eat a "baby bite"after dinner because Rainie and I are trying to avoid desserts for a month.  We are both 2 days in on our dessert challenge and we are going strong!

When dinner was over, I headed home to get some sleep before work tomorrow.
