Back in the Game

 Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets. 

After 8 days off from blogging I am back in the game! Not to worry, just because I took a little break doesn't mean I also threw out the gym and healthy eating! I have been one busy bumble at work and enjoying my time with friends, which I think everyone can relate to.

Two weeks ago I entered Chris and I into a photo contest on Facebook with a local Annapolis photographer for the chance to win a two hour photo shoot where we would be able to keep all of the edited, high res photos. We won by nine! It was so crazy close and down to the minute but I am sooo thankful for each and every person who voted for us. My stomach was doing backflips!

I would like to personally thank a few of my blogger friends who were so amazing and voted for us!

This past weekend we spent the day in Baltimore listening to live music and drinking with a few of our college friends ending the day at RA Sushi's happy hour. I could live off of ahi tuna! Chris went running with me Saturday morning around our neighborhood and we took the pups for a walk! I am sooo glad Spring is here and my lil pups get to go outside for walks once again!

Here are a few photos to recap my life this past week! 

Took these two Troublemakers for a Walk
Enjoyed the Amazing Weather at Work from our Rooftop
Made a Spinach Pea soup and Homemade Spinach Pesto
Roasted my First Chicken - SUCCESS
Spent Quality Time with Good Friends
My camera's flash always turns photos out strange! This girl needs a tan! Since I skipped the classes at the gym last week and just ran, I felt so amazing after today's spin class! I left dripping in sweat with a big grin on my face!

I made some lemon, honey soy salmon for dinner with a HUGE serving of brussel sprouts and broccoli! Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their night!
