It looked like something out of a Tim Burton movie. Upon closer inspection, the tree was dead and there was a sign in front of that read:
So sad! I couldn't believe people actually killed this tree by carving initials into it. Like anyone really cares that "Matt hearts Sarah forever?" I'd like to hunt Matt down and show him how much I heart him! Just let me catch someone doing this to a tree and it'll be ON!!
We should move on before my anger combusts the screen.
After our walk through the trails, we decided to grab some lunch at a new restaurant that opened recently in the plaza - The Lemon Grove. I've wanted to stop here for a while, I heard they had pretty good food, all fair trade and organic teas and coffees and a pretty artsy atmosphere.
I decided on the Louie Free for lunch. Sidenote: I have successfully avoided meat for the past three weeks! Go me! (:
I got a salad instead of chips on the side with balsamic vinaigrette. I took some pictures, but it was so dark in there that they didn't turn out very well sooo I'm not gonna post them. All in all, the food was good, but WAY overpriced. I spent ten bucks on a small sandwich and a tiny side salad! I mean, it was good, but not that good. Plus I'm pretty sure I could easily recreate this at home for next to nothing. It was a fun experience, but I don't think I'll be back. Thanks anyway though Lemon Grove!
Kelly and I also decided to take OhSheGlow's Whittle My Middle Challenge! Kelly's sister is getting married in October so it's time for a little Bride Bootcamp action! We started yesterday and I'm going to keep track of it on the new page. I'm pretty excited to see some results from this - I've never stuck with a strength routine before (I blush), but I'm hoping that doing it with a friend will keep me dedicated!
If anyone would like to join in, I'd love some groupies! Okay well I'm off! I've got a lot to do before work including:
- Clean my room
- Whittle my middle!
- Target run
- Visit the boyfriend
Have a bright happy day (:
