Saturday was just as busy. It was a scale back week for my half marathon training. I was only suppose to do 12K for my long run. My hubby had to do some volunteer drives at 9am, so I was out of the house early to complete my long run. I was home before nine and then I readied myself for the day, ate lunch and took Jules to a school friend's FOUR hour birthday party in a park. Although the parents said I could leave and come back for the swimming component, I didn't feel comfortable leaving him with a bunch of strangers. That was a bit torturous. But hubby stepped up and took over for the swimming part of the party. Thank goodness. I don't have a bathing suit. The one I wore last year was miles too big on me and I got rid of it. When I tried it on last month, the top did not fit at all. You could see stuff if I moved around. I was going to go swimming if I had to...in running gear! While hubby and Jules swam, I walked Finn 6K. Then got home just in time to get ready for dinner out while hubby went to get our babysitter.
We were treated to a lovely dinner out with friends last night. Dave and Liz took us out to a steak house called the Keg (I know those living in Ontario know the Keg, but I explain for everyone else). Dave and Liz are dear friends of ours. There's always reason to celebrate with them. We don't see them nearly enough, and in four more months, they are welcoming a bundle of baby joy into their lives! I'm super excited for them and can't wait to meet their son or daughter. It was also nice to get out for a night with adults only for a change!

The Keg was a great choice for us to eat at. We are all pretty much following similar diets. I was able to stay on plan (with the exception of bacon bits on my salad). I had a wedge salad with oil and vinegar for dressing, a New York strip loin steak with asparagus, mixed veggies and sauteed mushrooms. I also had a glass of red wine while we waited to be seated. I was pretty stuffed when we were done. It was a lot of food! And really yummy. I haven't had a good steak in ages. It was a real nice treat from some great friends!

Last night I got to play a little bit of dress up. I never go out, so I thought I'd attempt some night-time make-up like Kristjan taught me. It was fun to play around and I think I did a pretty decent job. I did smokier eyes like he showed me and it did make me look a bit more polished for a night-time look. I also wore a printed blouse that a friend gave me because it was too big for her. I wasn't sure how I would wear it, but I think I did a good job pairing it with my dark denim, plum jacket and pointy heels. It was fun dressing it up with some accessories too. All in all, I had fun dressing up last night. I think I'm finally getting the hang of this fashion thing!
