Lady Bloggers + Q&A Video

Happy Friday!  I can genuinely say I’m ready for the weekend.  I haven’t been home enough to straighten up the house this week and it’s driving me nuts.

Since when did I actually look forward to spending a full Saturday cleaning?  Maybe it’s because I’m 1 Year away from my 10 Year Reunion, ie: getting older.

Central Florida Lady Bloggers

Wednesday night I had the pleasure of meeting with Orlando’s finest Central Florida Lady Bloggers.  This was the first time I’d ever attended any kind of blogger event, and I have to admit I was a bit nervous going into it.

What if they don’t like what I write about? What if they don’t get the name? What if I don’t feel qualified to be talking with them?

Nonsense.

No requirements for attending the event, except to be a woman who blogs, tweets, or takes an absorbent amount of pictures of food. 😉

The meet up was at a fairly new Mexican restaurant in Thornton Park called Mucho Tequila & Tacos. The girls were very welcoming and I instantly recognized a few faces from blogs I’ve already been following.

I met a great group of creative women who write about everything under the sun.  If you’re a lady blogger and know of a group that meets similarly in your area, I urge you to get involved.

Thank you, Carolina for sharing this picture!  She did a wonderful job of sharing the blogs and bloggers in the group on her Central Florida Lady Bloggers at Muchos post yesterday.

I had a delicious skinny margarita, chicken fajitas, and a fantastic time.

Leftovers

My chicken fajitas were fresh and plentiful.  I was satisfied with two at the restaurant, so I boxed up the rest for the next day’s lunch.

*Health Tip: When dining out and seeing the portions are large, decide right then to only eat half of it.  Turning one large meal into two smaller ones saves money and calories.

Winter Park Road Race 10K

Chicken Sausage and veggies over rice

I ran my first 10K on Saturday and had a blast! I know that sounds weird to say about running 6.2 straight miles, but my “good time” came from setting a great PR (Personal Record) and truly enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning run around Park Avenue of Winter Park. Last Sunday my mom called asking…

While training for my half marathon, I became a pro at putting together quick & easy meals, mostly because of being hungry and not have the patience to make anything complicated. Although I occasionally highlight meals, I’m now realizing I don’t have a spot on the blog that’s easy to access them.  As time goes…
